EQ2

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From EQ2i, the EverQuest II wiki

Resistances are a type of defense against spells. They are the magical counterpart to mitigation, according to the tooltip, as they absorb a flat percentage of incoming damage. It appears they also affect the chance of typed spells being fully resisted (please confirm).

There are 7 types of resistances, sometimes described in 3 different categories by resistance-increasing spells.

  • Elemental
    • Heat damage
    • Cold damage
  • Arcane
    • Magic danage
    • Mental (mind) damage
    • Divine (spiritual/godly) damage
  • Noxious
    • Poison damage
    • Disease damage

The tooltip on the Persona window states "You will absorb X% of the (resist type) damage from a level Y opponent", Y being your current level.

The race of a character affects their resistances, as does their Wisdom and equipment and buffs that are on them. Wisdom increases all resistances equally.

Increasing absorbtion% takes more resistance points as absorbtion% gets higher, however, the survivability provided by absorbtion% increases as well.

It appears that the inherent resistances are determined by race, increase upon leveling, and become more and more disparate according to race; a 70th level Erudite will have more mental and magic resistance than a 70th level Ratonga when armorless, who will have him beat on noxious resistance.

Whether a particular amount of wisdom is better than the same amount of stamina, or what a particular amount of + category or + specific resistance is worth on an item is debatable and flexible. The more health you have, the more resistance will help you.

Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

The Resistance, also reffered to as the Insurgence, is the name of a group in the game Final Fantasy XII. It is an assembly of anti-Imperial forces that are found throughout Ivalice.

Contents

Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Creation

Map of Ivalice

For the most part of the story, the Resistance was largely made up by the remnants of the Dalmascan Army after the fall of Dalmasca following the surrender at Nalbina Fortress and the death of King Raminas supposedly by the Dalmascan captain, Basch fon Ronsenburg. The Resistance was created on the eve that Marquis Ondore falsely declared Ashe dead. Vossler York Azelas took her underground and together they created resistance with aid from Bhujerba under Marquis Ondore.

Attack on the Royal Palace of Rabanastre

The Resistance stayed underground until Vayne Carudas Solidor was elected Consul of Rabanastre. An attack was planned to be staged during the banquet held for the occasion.

Vossler and Ashe had squads of fighters set up in the Garamsythe Waterway and attempted to storm the palace during the banquet when security was supposed to be light. However, Vayne knew of this attack beforehand and decided to use himself as bait to lure out the Resistance. He made plans to have the Ifrit patrol Dalmascan skies. When the resistance made their move, they were caught in a deadly snare. Bombed by fire from Ifrit, most were killed in the destruction. However, the leaders of the Resistance, Vossler and Ashe both managed to survive.

Return of Basch

Ashe was captured during her escape through the Waterway, and with her a group of thieves, Vaan, Balthier, and Fran were arrested as well. The thieves are all sent to the Nalbina Dungeons. While breaking out of Nalbina they discovered Basch fon Ronsenburg, the disgraced captain of the Dalmascan army accused of killing King Raminas and also said to be dead himself. The party helped him escape after he reveals that the death of the king was an elaborate setup by Vayne and Basch's twin, Judge Gabranth, who impersonated Basch and in actuality killed King Raminas.

Upon returning to Rabanastre, Basch met with the surviving commanders and soldiers of the resistance lead by Vossler. Vossler, cautious in making their move after the disastrous attack at the Palace, refuses to let Basch join their cause. Basch then decides to seek the Marquis. To gain the Marquis' attention, Vaan "revealed" himself as Captain Basch, prompting the Resistance forces in Bhujerba to capture them, leading them to Havharo, the Bhujerban Resistance leader, and then to the Marquis himself.

The Marquis at first seems less than helpful. Rather than giving direct aid, he has them arrested by his Archadian "allies". The party manages to rescue the Ashe and defeat Judge Ghis, thus being able to escape to the Tomb of Raithwall with Vossler at their side.

Vossler's Betrayal, Fall of 8th fleet

The 8th Fleet of Archadia in Jagd Yensa

Vossler seems to be loyal for a time, but shows his true colors when the party is captured by the Archadian Empire's 8th Fleet. His rationale is that Dalmasca's only future is with the Empire, continued resistance would be pointless. Opposing his ideals, the party defeated him in battle. Judge Ghis brings about his own destruction by experimenting with the Nethicite recovered from the Tomb of Raithwall. The party escapes, but Ghis and Vossler are destroyed along with the entire Eighth Fleet. After this disaster, the first cracks in the Archadian armor show. Resistance to them grows considerably.

Turning Point

After the destruction of the 8th Fleet, the resistance began to make huge steps to take advantage of the situation. Ondore withdrew his position as Marquis of Bhujerba with the excuse of an illness. He traveled across Ivalice to bring all parts of the Resistance together, including the Resistance within the rival Empire of Rozarria.

With the threat of such a massive conflict, the idea was that Archadia may be willing to make more concessions. Al-Cid Margrace of Rozarria was sent to Mt. Bur-Omisace for a peace negotiation with Archadia. However, all hope for a peaceful end to crisis was destroyed when Vayne murdered his father and became the new Emperor of Archadia. Judge Bergan was sent to Bur-Omisace and slaughtered the Gran Kiltias Anastasis and other pilgrims at the site.

Ondore also hired the Sky Pirate King Reddas of Balfonheim as a mercenary to infiltrate Draklor Laboratory and steal Deifacted Nethicite. Ondore also began to train the resistance over the Dalmasca-Rozarria borders. The road to war was now clearly mapped out.

Battle over Rabanastre

The Sky Fortress looms over Dalmasca
Main article: Battle above Rabanastre

The war began, as many wars do, unexpectedly for both sides. A group of Rozarrian mercenaries who were hired into the resistance ignored orders and traveled to Nabudis for a surprise attack. They retreated into Rabanastre airspace, and as they hoped, provoked a belligerent response from Archadia. The entire 12th fleet of the Archadian army, with the colossal Sky Fortress Bahamut as the flagship, charged after them.

Ondore, unable to just leave his ships out to be destroyed, sent his entire fleet out to support them. The Battle Above Rabanastre thus began. Many ships and fighters were destroyed on both sides, but the battle was finally decided inside the Sky Fortress itself. The main party went inside and defeated Vayne Solidor. The Bahamut collapsed and crashed into the deserts around Dalmasca. It remains as a monument to the struggle.

The Resistance, their cause fulfilled, disappeared after Larsa Ferrinas Solidor became Emperor of Archadia. Ashe was put in her rightful place as Queen of Dalmasca and Ondore returned to Bhujerba.

Trivia

  • A running joke throughout the game is the proper name for the Resistance. Balthier, Judge Ghis and even Larsa call it the "Insurgence", prompting Ashe to correct them.

ST Expanded

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

This article has a
real-world perspective.


"Resistance" is the fifth episode of the first season of Star Trek: Daedalus, and is the first part of a two-parter.

Contents

Summary

As the Gateway crisis grips the rest of the Alpha Quadrant, the USS Daedalus is ordered to Kora II, a Cardassian planet. On arrival, the Daedalus crew discover that an Iconian gateway has opened up on the surface of the planet and is linked to a Borg planet located in the Delta Quadrant.

Unfortunately, the Borg have discovered the gateway and have begun to crossover to investigate and assimilate the inhabitants. With no other options, Christopher Mackenzie and his crew have no choice but to stand and fight with their former Cardassian enemies, to fight the rampaging Borg.

Background notes

This story was originally meant to be based upon the Doctor Who television serial, The Power of the Daleks, a Patrick Troughton serial from 1966. In this original story, the Cardassian settlers found a crashed centuries-old Borg vessel located under the surface of the planet.

Inside the cube are several drones who barely resemble the Borg they recognize, but the Cardassians reactivate them and discover that they are eager to serve. However, the Borg soon turn on their Cardassian masters and assimilate them.

However, it was decided by the writers not to pursue this as an idea (yet!!), and instead to retool the story using the Gateway crisis as a focus.

Definition

Resistance

In general terms, resistance to an effect reduces its potency but does not make it less likely to occur.

  1. Resistance to damage reduces the amount of damage suffered. Tankers and Brutes can get up to 90% resistance to any type of damage, Kheldians can get up to 85% resistance to any damage type, and all other archtypes can get up to 75% damage resistance to any damage type.
  2. Resistance to a debuff reduces the amount of the debuff.
  3. Resistance to knockback reduces the knockback distance.
  4. Resistance to a Status Effect causes that status to wear off faster.
Note: Many powers are described in the game as providing Resistance to knockback or status effects when they actually provide Protection.

Formulas

Resistances to damage and debuffs follow the formula

SufferedAmount = AppliedAmount × (100% – TotalResistance)

For example, 75% resistance to fire damage would stop 75% of all fire damage that hostile powers try to apply to a character, allowing only 1/4 of it to affect him or her.


Resistance to status effects follows a different formula:

SufferedDuration = AppliedDuration / (100% + TotalResistance)

So 75% resistance to Sleep duration, for example, would not cause all Sleeps to affect the character for only 1/4 of their normal durations. Their durations would be divided by 1.75, which is roughly only a 43% reduction.

More importantly, the formula means that achieving 100% or more resistance to effect durations does not cause them to end instantly. 100% resistance actually only cuts their durations in half. That is currently the best reduction that can be achieved due to maximums on mez resistance. If higher values were possible, 200% would cut it to a third, 300% would cut it to a fourth, and so on.

Enemy Resistances

Enemies resist damage like players do, but resist a Status Effect based on the magnitude of the effect.
