What Does Resistance Do In Diablo Immortal?

Nathan Garvin

Information about the Resistance Attribute in Diablo Immortal. What does Resistance do, and how to improve your Resistance score?

Your Resistance stat will reduce the duration of control effects you suffer.

What Does Resistance Do in Diablo Immortal?

Your Resistance score is a relative value and is compared to the average Potency score of enemies of your level. The higher your Resistance is compared to an enemy’s Potency, the shorter the duration of control effects affecting you. Control effects have a 50% shorter duration against other players.

You can increase your Resistance attribute by equipping Topazes.

How to Increase Your Resistance Attribute

Resistance is a secondary attribute in Diablo Immortal, and as such it is derived from numerous sources, including your Willpower attribute, equipped Normal Gems, and by upgrading the [Legacy of the Horadrim].


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 Resistance, Resistance Penetration, Combat Rating, Damage, Life, Resistance 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.


Socketing Citrines (Normal Gems, you must have secondary gear with yellow gem sockets to equip) will increase your Resistance attribute. Upgrading Normal Gems to higher ranks will cause their effects to increase substantially.

Legacy of the Horadrim

Installing Vessels into the Legacy of the Horadrim will provide passive bonuses to various stats, with the Zoltan Kulle’s Ingenuity and Guilt of the Nameless Vessels increasing Resistance. Upgrading installed Vessels will increase the stat bonuses they provide.
