    Hit lower defense now ignores over capped DCI

    The stat bar shows a DCI cap of 45. With refined armor you can get 70 (?) DCI. Sooo, do I build a suit with 45 dci since anything overcap is ignored ooor do I build it with 70 dci? Can I get to 70 DCI using ONLY refined armor or can it be done the normal way (jewels,weapons,talisman)? This game is getting so confusing and complicated it's not much fun anymore :(

    The CAP is 45% DCI. Refinements adjust the CAP... at an exchange rate of 1% Specific Resist CAP for 1% DCI CAP. This means you can lower all your resist caps to 65% and correspondingly increase your DCI Cap 5% per resist X 5 Resists = 25% DCI CAP increase. 45% Original DCI CAP becomes 45% + 25% = 70% DCI CAP @ the cost of having all 65% Resistance CAPS (which means when cursed you'd drop down to 55% !! ouch.) This can also go the other direction and you could MAX out your resistances at +5% to Each Cap for a cost of losing -25% DCI CAP so 45% DCI CAP down to 20% DCI CAP with all 75% Resists (if your not an elf). Hope that makes it a bit more clear. I always start with WHY would want to do something before I bother figuring out HOW I would go about doing it....

    I am thinking of trying out raising all my resist, dropping my DCI and running 120 parry w/ 120 bushido and a 2-handed weapon.
