Magic Resistance required for mobs

Postby 1[WoWz] » Tue Jun 09, 2015 4:42 am

Hello all. Most people know that magic resistance (MR) is required if you want to fight the harder magic using mobs in the game.

Although I don't know exactly how the damage is calculated, I know that once you have a certain amount of MR against a mob, it reduces the damage of most spells to the lowest amount. To resist the maximum amount of damage, your MR has to be 1.25x the amount of INT that mob has.

With a full set of fel/dun/bal-mythic artifacts or MR+5 gear and level 350+, a fighter, rogue, monk or priest may be able to reach 2500 or higher MR or even get closer to 3000. Mages and necromancers will have higher MR because they will put points into Int. I believe the best number to reach for is 2625 MR, since this will help you resist all heroic dragons besides reds.

Sorry the list isn't more pretty, feel free to format it and repost it if you'd like. Here is the list of the more popular mobs and the MR required to resist them:

This is why magic resistance and defense need to be reworked

Because I have poor attention to detail.

I disagree, I think magic resistance is in a great place right now. I don't think defense needs to be reworked, there just needs to be hunting grounds of high damage melee mobs like Shadow Warriors and Blood Warriors that make building defense seem worth while.

There is a list of mobs in the maped download. I calculated the MR based on the mobs int then I trimmed the columns and took out a majority of the mobs. I forgot to take out ogre but I have updated it now.
