What Does Fortitude Do in Diablo Immortal?
Fortitude is an Attribute in Diablo Immortal, and as a primary stat it directly influences other stats, including Armor, Armor Penetration, and Combat Rating.
Your Armor is a relative value, and if your Armor is higher than expected for your character level, you’ll enjoy greater damage reduction when you block attacks and will sustain less critical hit damage, while if your Armor is lower than expected for your character level, you may sustain more critical hit damage.
Armor Penetration is a relative value, and if your Armor Penetration is higher than expected for your character level, you’ll deal increased critical hit damage and deal extra damage when an enemy blocks, while if your Armor Penetration is lower than expected for your character level, you may deal less damage when an enemy blocks your attacks.
Combat Rating is another relative value, and is perhaps the most important derive stat in the game. If your Combat Rating is higher than expected for your character level you’ll deal more damage and sustain less, while the inverse may be true if your Combat Rating is lower than expected for your character level.
How to Increase Your Fortitude Attribute
Most gear generally gives you flat bonuses to Damage or Life, as well as having a Magic Property and potentially a Legendary Property. In addition, equipment will give you Attribute bonuses, with rarer, higher level equipment granting higher Attribute bonuses. Any piece of gear - provided it’s at least of Rare quality or higher should have bonuses to two different Attributes on it. What two attributes a piece of equipment has on it is random, as is the value of said Attribute bonuses.
In addition to gear, your Resonance score modifies the Base Attribute bonuses your equipped gear grants you, with a higher Resonance score yielding a higher percentage bonus to your Attribute scores. Since many other derived stats like Armor, Armor Penetration, Combat Rating, Damage, Life, Potency and Resistance are directly influenced by your Attributes, your Resonance score is immensely important, and does much to determine your overall effectiveness in combat. Resonance is primarily gained by equipping Legendary Gems, the rare the Legendary Gem and the more it has been upgraded, the higher the Resonance bonus, hence the higher your Attributes will be boosted.
