Also known as: Spell Resistance
Spell Resistance is a defensive attribute, and affects a character’s ability to resist being struck with a critical hit from a magical attack. When a character resists a critical hit from a magical attack, that attack will instead inflict normal damage. The chance to resist critical hits increases based on the amount of Spell Resistance the character possesses.
Many classes can benefit from Spell Resistance, more so in PvP. Classes like Gladiators and Assassins, who tend to have fewer defenses against magical attacks, can benefit from Spell Resistance to reduce the chance of receiving a critical hit from classes like Sorcerers and Spiritmasters.
A high Spell Resistance attribute is most important for classes that have fewer defenses against magical attacks, in particular when engaging in PvP combat. However, all classes can benefit from more Spell Resistance.
