I noticed today that my level 8 mage is taking fire damage if i stand close to the fire ball.I have a fire resistance of +46 which includes a +20 ring if flames. my fire ball skill is level 1 (deal 9-18 damage) so why am i taking damage? :?:

In fact, the resistance values can directly be interpreted as percentages only up to a value of 50. After that, a mechanism kicks in which multiplies every additional point by a penalty factor of 1/2 for values 51 to 80, 1/3 for values 81 to 110, and 1/4 for every value above 110.

Some examples for clarity:

Resistance value of 50 - Damage reduction by 50% (half damage)
Resistance value of 86 - Damage reduction by 50% + 30%/2 + 6%/3 = 67% (one-third damage)
Resistance value of 110 - Damage reduction by 50% + 30%/2 + 30%/3 = 75% (one-quarter damage)
Resistance value of 210 - Damage reduction by 50% + 30%/2 + 30%/3 + 100%/4 = 100% (immunity)

It could be answered in two ways:

Fireball damages you always, your companions are spared from fire damage.

And, you'd have much higher fire resistance to completely avoid fire damage. There was discussion regarding Crown of Tol, how to wear it. Not sure if the same applies with fire damage from fireball.

What your battle log say, do you subtract some of the fire damage from fireball?
