Path of Exile: Elemental Resistance Tip
This is probably something you will figure out, by the time you hit level 25. But if you are just starting out, then let me help you out a bit. I carry 4 rings in my pack.
The first 2 are Fire Resistance rings. The second ones are Lightning Resistance rings. While at level 20+ I have yet to really come across any mobs which will have me dying from the cold, it is on my list of what I need to be carrying. Soon I will have 2 +Fire resist, 2 +Lightning resist, and 2 +Cold resist rings.
Why? because when I come across a fire caster, I can switch out my rings fairly quickly, which in turn allows me to run straight at the mob, rather then trying to kite them, while in turn I am being Kited, and the same goes for lightning casters. Without the rings, I need to run in, kill a mob, run out, regain health and energy shield, and then rinse and repeat until I can down all the mobs. With the rings, I can quickly take them down.
Tip: Search your passive skill tree, and try to find a way to increase your resistances that way as well. Those 3 resistances, will be a boon to your character’s survival if you have them.
