I tested this with a succubus who threw fireballs at Geralt.

  1. 62 Elemental resistance + 14 damage resistance (arachas decoction) = 76 Elemental resistance
  2. 14 damage resistance (arachas decoction)
Succubus hit for 3700-3900 damage regardless. I’ve tested the other forms of damage resistance & they work. Geralt is DEAD against mages.

Elemental resistance only works for elemental monsters: wild hunt, golem, gargoyle, elementals, etc.

Use monter resistance against succubus.
Time I was on my way. So long.

I know the pieces fit, 'cause I watched them fall away.

Tried wearing armor with 100% fire immunity. No effect whatsoever.

Once again you have the wrong resistance.

Can you be more specific? I posted my experiments & findings. Where did I go wrong? What am I missing?

You went wrong in assuming the damage type. Salma being a boss is probably dealing out magic damage. There are no resistances against magic damage. The Ofieri mage is an example. Now I haven't looked into the files to confirm this but it's a good guess.

I would suggest the following test. Use Hybrid oil and check her damage. The oil if you had the right skill should give you some resistance.

I performed the above tests again, this time with protective coating, which adds 25% damage resistance to the targeted monster type. Same damage, 3700-3900.

There’s no magic resistance in this game. Thankfully, you don’t face spellcasters much.
