Diablo 4 – Barbarian Guide: Elemental Resistances and How to Cap

Barbarian: Elemental Resistances Tips

  • Goes up to 70% Damage reduction (baseline) versus a given elemental damage type.
  • Extremely important to have capped or nearly (order: Poison > Lightning > Fire > Shadow > Cold)

How to Cap?

  • Midgame (Option 1 – Budget): Get x3 single resistances on affixes, x2 single resistances Gems and 1x all resistance Gem (Diamond)
  • Midgame (Option 2 – Expensive): Get x3 All resistance affixes, x3 all resistances Gems (Diamond)
  • Lategame (Option 1 – Budget): Get x2 Single resistances on affixes, x3 single resistances Gems (that you don’t have as affixes) and match your implicit ring resistances (as they give all resistances + single resistance) to 2 of your gems resistances (ideally not cold resistance).
  • Lategame (Option 2 – Expensive): Get x2 Greater Affix All resistance affixes, x3 all resistances Gems (Diamond)

This should make you capped on all resistances beside one (usually cold) at 60%, if you’re a bit short, don’t forget to use Incense (Desert Escape is goat for fire/cold/shadow here).

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
