Mechanics

This flask provides a defensive buff to whichever resistances share the lowest uncapped value, and a penetration buff to whichever resistances share the highest uncapped value. If any or all of your resistances match, they will share benefits.

For example:

  • Fire res: 120, Cold res: 120, Lightning res: 110

In this scenario, you gain the penetration bonus to Fire and Cold because they are tied for the highest value. Lightning will get the defensive buff.

  • Fire res: 120, Cold res: 120, Lightning res: 120

In this scenario, you are in fact getting the offensive and the defensive buff to every element.[1]
