    I use to play way way back when resist actully took dmg off of mages spells (i think i was 15 at the time) have recently joined and i have two dexxor templates one runs 120 resist the other doesnt seems to me like the only up side that the resist has is i get a 50/50 shot of not getting poisoned/paraed. I see very few mages use mana vamp. and my char that doesnt have resist can avoid any 3 mage gank squad trying to para spam me until the dismounter can catch up with a uoassited trap box macro whats our thoughts on this one?TYR

    Apples and trapped box negate resist on most dex temps. For some of my dexxer PvPers I have resist others do not but all run apples and boxes anyways.

    For a non stealther type char on my accounts I preffer to have resist even though I could spend the points elsewhere and 99% of the time this is the char that never gets mana-vamped. I must admit that resist is handy when raiding a champ and the spawn is spamming but if your blue you can honor yourself and avoid spells for a good few minutes.

    If you can fit it in I'd keep it even if it's limited in use. Simply avoiding a poison here and there can be all the difference in winning.

    Carlos Mencia "Dee dee dee" moment for myself...

    Honor yourself when the casters start coming out in level 3, wade through them and pick them off..... ingenious
