I really think Resist could probably just be a redirect to Resistance and incorporate the information there. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 2:28 PM, 14 Jun 2009 (EDT)

Stoutpaw made this comment about the topic: "Resist is a type of avoidance to an spell attack. Resistance is a stat that can be used to calculate mitigation from spl dmg. Like Dodge and Defense.". Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 11:54 PM, 16 Aug 2009 (EDT)
So you're differentiating between the stat and the mechanic? So far, in the example of dodge, we still do mechanic and stat information in one article. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 11:56 PM, 16 Aug 2009 (EDT)

Obsolete Edit

This article was very instructive at the time the combat log was not differentiating Spell Miss ( related to spell hit chance ) and Spell Resist ( related to spell penetration ). The combat log was always writing "Resist" either in the case of a Miss or a Resist. But now, since the combat log do differentiate Miss and Resist, this arcticle can be confusing. The comparison between Spell Miss and Physical Miss ( Miss, Dodge, and Parry ) is good because these are the first check in order to determine the result of the attack, to determine firstly if the attack hit her target. Exept that here the Spell Miss is named Spell Resist like it was formerly do by the combat log. So at least the word Resist must be changed for Miss in this case. It must be moreover completed by a comparison between Spell Resist and Armor Mitigation since these are the last check, and in the two case, magical or physical, the process of damage reduction, once the check of hit has been positive. Furthermore, the examples of talents are out of date, they have changed. I suggest the simply removal of this article and the redirect to Resistance ( like said by Howbizr ) since it is sufficient on its own. Kromf (talk) 03:43, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
