Healing Off Immolate--Truely a Show of Awesomeness

I saw the most amazing video last week, and I neglected to share it with you all. You gotta check this out. As far as I know, this is the first time any player has cracked their resistances above 100 percent. In fact, Zachary (Wizardmaster2 on Central) raised his fire resist up to 101 percent.

Here's the thread that talks about this.

Here's the video from that thread:

Now THAT is the first time I've ever seen the "Immune" message float above someone's head, and since he has one percent over immunity, Immolate actually heals him.

This is a thing of beauty my friends because getting your fire resists up beyond 100 percent is no easy task. How he did it? As he states on that thread, "molten mantle, reckless runners, some 30% fire resist robe (bazaar), heartsteel, and a 24% fire resist burnzilla."

You gotta give it up to him for building a gear set specifically for use with the immolate spell, which usually damages you for 250 and hits your enemy for 600.

I don't know if this is even possible for other classes, but imagine a necromancer who healed himself twice over with a sacrifice or who could gain life through the empower spell. Now that would be pretty awesome. :-)

Happy Dueling!

Empower would be crazy. Getting pips for healing yourself? That would be crazy.

Somewhere on the thread someone brought up the point of hurting your enemies with it. IF they use wraith, and do -100 damage, would they take -50 damage? That would be really intresting.

This means he has open chat. It is for players 18 years old and up or those who have parental permission and a valid credit card on their account. Yellow simply means other people with open chat can see that word, while those with filtered chat and no chat cannot.

And also, this is amazing. Imagine if you could get 200% resist! Epic pwnage lol

WOW! That's something....

I don't know if you know this, but I'm pretty sure you can almost do the same thing with life! :D

I checked the bazaar, and found level 56 (I think, don't remember) gear, which has hat, robes, and boots. Altogether, they give 70-ish life resist, so with a pet that gives 20-ish, I'd assume you can get to the 90s. :)

What if a ice wizard did this they could be immune to all schools. That would be epic!
