Notes

  • As of Patch 1.03, Defenses are determined by the character Level and the stated Attribute value, so a higher level character with a given Attribute value will have greater Defense than a lower level character with the same Attribute value. Similarly, Resistances are primarily determined by the character Level and secondarily by the stated Attributes but only when those Attributes are above 30. So, for example, Luck only increases Curse Resistance when Luck is greater than 30.
