OK, the resistance formula is now up on the strategy page here (http://www.soldak.com/content/view/168/70/). They work mostly the same as armor, but have different numbers and only applies to specific damage types.

Verrrry interesting about the lack of effectiveness vs. DoT... It's exactly that kind of thing that makes it so cool to know how things really work. Thanks again!

Oh, and I think there's a cut-and-paste-o with EffectiveArmor/4. ;)

Oops, I'll fix that. Well it's not that it's less effective against dots, but that dots do less damage at a time so the formula tries to take that into account.

Hmm, does this also appy for physical resist? It isnt listed in the character sheet anywhere, but I'd guess that it starts at 0 and moseys up for the vitality bonuses?

When I saw the +5 physical resist, I got all excited thinking it'd absorb the first 5 damage, doh!

Yes, this should apply to physical resistance also.
