I put the pictures in here for now and was wondering if someone else could place them better, I'm not that good with this kind of stuff :(, also the strategy could probably be expanded on.


From my testing it seems that she has about 120% cold resistance. Used Frostbite + Elemental Weakness + Freeze Mine to lower her cold resist by 119%, which eliminated the "resists all elements" on her display, changing it to "resists fire" and "resists lightning". From this I think we may be able to assume she also has 120% fire/lightning resist, although testing it would be nice. Someone with lvl 3 empower, +2/+1 gems, and 20/20 dual curses can get 118% reduction to test it out. Alternatively one could use Elemental Equilibrium. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Olop4444 (talkcontribs)

Merciless Piety has 45 to all resists (elem and chaos). But she also has an implicit "reduced curse effect" modifier that decreases your debuffs by 70%. The math is:
  • Debuff applied by Freeze Mine = 15% (not a curse, so unaffected by Piety's implicit mod)
  • Debuff applied by each curse = (52% * 0.3) = (rounded down to 15)
The total is exactly 45, hence the "resist cold" disappearing. You would need to reach a 54% base debuff from the curses if you want to see her "Vulnerable to Cold". Good luck with that ;) Chriskang (talk) 22:57, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Ah, I forgot about that. Thanks for correcting my math. Olop4444 (talk)
