-45% elemental resist, please can someone from gearbox tell me exactly what this modifier does, because no google results are popping up and I’m pretty sure a bunch of people think different things about it. People claim it means that all elemental damage is nerfed against enemies, like its the opposite of the 70/70 one but if it was that, they’d word it similarly wouldn’t they? Instead of what would imply that lowering resistance stat somehow gives them more resistance, which doesn’t seem right, but if that is the case, the wording needs to be clarified to mean that.
I also haven’t noticed a decrease in elemental damage I’ve dealt with this modifier on, there’s no “resists” popping up unlike the singular -50% damage taken modifiers for enemies, which leads me to believe that it is something along the lines of YOU taking more elemental damage or having a higher chance for elemental status effects to affect you. Can someone from gearbox please confirm exactly what this modifier is?
