    Am I correct in saying that magic resistance does not mitigate magic damage?

    Resisting Spells doesn't reduce direct magic damage.

    I read the tooltip.......Just wanted to be sure that there was not an unlisted benefit. Thank you both for your replies.

    Resist spells does give you natural resists up to 46 though, iirc.
    So if you're not wearing any armour, or your armour lowest resists are lower than 46, resist spells will give you that much resist on that element.

    So yeah, in a way it reduces the damage you take. But you usually doesn't notice that because your armour is often over that natural amount that resist spells give you.
