I hear Krieg gets +50 damege resist so if I add rough ryder shield that gives you +20 damege resist and they can stack +70 damage resist would be great for UTVHM

Damage resist has some funky formula that stops it from working like you'd think. It wouldn't block 70% of damage, it'd probably be somewhere around 40%

Yeah, looked it up and it's 1/(1 + Damage resistance). So for example a rough rider would be 1/1.2= 83.3% of damage is taken. There are pretty big diminishing returns the higher you get it up. He's not gonna be some invincible tank.

That's pretty stupid. I wonder why they did it like that...

It depends how you look at it.
Yes, the % of damage you are not taking has diminishing returns, but the increase in survivability is linear.
With +100% damage reduction it takes twice as many hits to kill you, with +200% it takes 3 times as many, and so on.

He'll resist something like 66.66...%+ damage with all buffs stacked and a rough rider...I think.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

Flicker adds 60% elemental chance!! Everything is just constantly melting, even non elemental weapons get the buff!! It's insane!! Best skill in the game.
