Resistances and damage modifiers


Recommended Posts

I don't quite understand what do resistances do. I have 2 cases:


wizard's fire shield (red) has 2 effects

- stat: fire res modifier

- stat: reduced damage form magical fire modifier


potion of fire res has only one effect

- stat: fire res modifier


Does it mean that potion of fire resistance does not protect from magical fire at all? Or what? What kind of fire is considered magical in BG2 and what isn't?

Magic fire and magic cold are never used. Like aVENGER states, they don't work very well. The game uses normal fire and cold damage types for everything.


Almost all fire and cold in the game comes from magical sources, so I imagine they didn't really need to bother making the "magic" fire and cold damage types work right.
