    Are we SURE Resistance does nothing for PVP?

    Post by Slarg232 on Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:15 pm

    I'm seriously questioning the claim that Resistance is worthless in PVP. Why have a stat and then make it useless for half (Invades and all) the content? Dark Souls is all about learning what doesn't work, but I don't, I just can't, beleive that they would make one stat such a noob trap....



    What kind of testing has been done with Resistance?

    Try on mugenmonkey you'll see how low the defense increases with Res.

    What about that fatal hit thing and the additional 1 damage off per point?

    Its extremely useful for pve but not pvp me and reaperfan (i think) did some test's on a thread i made awhile back and resistance is a god stat for pve/co-op but offers very little benefit outside of poison resistance for pvp. But as sombody mentioned above ive also heard that there was somthing added in the last patch for the res stat... never got around to figuring out what it is exactly.

    Although now that i think about it. Ive made a mildred cos-play video awhile back and i had 60 vit and 30 res and i was able to handle quite a beating. You can watch it here if you like.
    EDIT: i completely forgot at the time of the recording of that vid my vit was only at 42 not only was i out lvled by my opponents and the fact i was naked but i wasent even at my targeted sl. So i think res may cause i decent benefit in pvp aswel, i may do some testing...

    Might have to just conduct my own series of tests...

    What I find is that resistance seems to work like humanity (or used to,) in that it gives you a point of defense that you would get leveling up. Say you level up, and you get 2 points of defense, not leveling resistance. Level up resistance instead, and you get 4 points of defense.

    This explains why, for me, resistance seems to be more useful at lower levels, because it does jack sh*t at higher levels, even though I have not touched resistance at all.

    The game wasn't designed through a PvP prism, keep that in mind.
