So, I'm a Breton (25% magic res) with Agent of Mara (15% magic res) and a vampire (-50% fire res), along with +46% resist fire from my boots and +51% fire res from my necklace.

Added up, that's
Magic Res: +40%
Fire Res: +97%
Vampire: -50%

For a grand total of +87% (as a vampire, I am unconcerned with poison/disease). I've taken similar steps with frost and shock, but they're less complicated without the whole vampire problem. I have the shield of solitude's enchant and was using a whole-hog resist magic system, but saw that I could squeeze a few more points out of resistances by doing fire separately.

So am I about 87% resistant to fire? or is there more to the math than what I've described? Seeing as I like poking at dragons, having strong resistances is important to me.

Well don't that just beat all?
