Hitting through resistances

    Killing some spiders with cobra armour, I'm getting hit with the following:
    ( 27 / 75 ) You have been poisoned!
    ( 94 / 75 ) You have been poisoned!

    Is there something going wrong with resistances?

    Yes
    Which enemy specifically did that?

    Spitting spiders, snakes and the envenomed skeletons from bloodrose.

    I've tried unequipping and re-equipping the cobra armour.

    Bleh, gonna have to go through some old archives to figure where that message was - we've changed how DOT resistances work since. The only commented instance I'm seeing of it isn't prefixed with a roll report.

    You can check your resistances with "listresist" at chat or console, but I'm wondering if it's really bleeding over some other numbers.

    img linking don't wanna work :(

    Here's what it looks like. (worth noting that 100% fire resist didn't have this problem.)

    Wait... The crack I am on...

    Several revisions ago we re-rigged it so DOT resistance no longer prevents DOT application, it only reduces damage and removes the secondary effects (this also applies to monsters).

    So for fire and regular poison, this is only going to reduce damage. For greater poison and lightning it removes the "drunk"/miss chance effect, removes the slow effect for cold, prevents freezing solid, etc. etc.

    PS. Also, to embed an image from imgur, right click on the image and click "Copy Image Address", then encapsulate the url with the [img][/img] tag.
