    When does 75 Energy on an Elf become an advantage over 70 Energy on either race?

    Thanks, Katrena

    WHEN... ??? Hmm, I'd say as soon as you Take Energy Damage..... :rolleyes2:

    If you take 100 potential Energy Dmg from something... 70 Energy Resist = 30 Dmg / 75 Energy Resist = 25 Dmg. So I guess you could technically be asking when the difference in how much damage you take is worth the effort of having 75 Energy Resist on your Suit. That answer is only something you can answer for yourself though.

    EDIT...

    I initially read your post as "when is 75 energy on and elf better than 70 energy on an elf".. I see now that your comparing Racial benefits. If that's the case you have to take into ALL of the benefits of a given race and weigh them with reguard to what your trying to accomplish. For example all of my sampires are Elf pretty much for 2 reasons.... 75 Energy resist (Farming UEV), and the + 20 Mana ..... lets not forget FREE nightsight either. Anyway it's your call.

    Thanks for your information and insight and I understand the "70 Energy Resist = 30 Dmg / 75 Energy Resist = 25 Dmg". Would you please explain the benefit of 75 Energy against the UEV. I fight UEV's all of the time with both a Human Paladin and Human Sampire and don't understand how the extra Energy resist would help. Damage is minimal on the Paladin and non existent on the Sampire. It was my understanding that they only do physical damage.

    Thanks, Katrena

    UEV's do 100% energy damage, not physical damage.

    Well.. It shoudln't be surprising that a creature that's Named "Energy Vortex" basically does 100% Energy dmg.. Something to ALWAYS consider if your a number munchkin is what EXACT dmg types does the monster you wanna fight do...

    Beyond that I specifically use 75 Energy Resist fighting UEV's bc with non-Med Armor (Specifically Bone / Studded) the protection from stamina loss is pretty good... & when combined with a Parox Swampy ( -12 % Damage Taken) and the added 75% Energy Resist I CANNOT lose stamina when hit unless my life is in the 30% Range which basically never happens. Knowing all this works I completely removed Hit Stamina Leech and the Vamp. Stam Regen is enough to Regenerate me full on the RARE occasions that I miss so many times in a row that I drop below 30%. I typically just keep counter-attack going but at 30% I usually pop Evasion which gives me a few AI's to refill most of the time.... I suppose I could confidence too though..

    Thanks, I had looked it up on Stratics awhile back, but got the damage type and elemental resistance reversed when I posted.
