What will happen if have spirit resistance > 100?
The chances of which of the three outcomes is determined by Spirit Resistance. First, using the Resistance equations above, your Spirit Resistance is converted into a Calculated Spirit Percentage, and than that Calculated Spirit Percentage is used to determine the chance of each outcome in the manner below:
• Outcome 1, taking the full effect of stun / paralyze attack occurs with the chance of (100% - Calculated Spirt Percentage).
• Outcome 2, taking half effect of the stun / paralyze attack occurs with the chance of ( Calculated Spirt Percentage / 2).
• Outcome 3, taking no effect of the stun / paralyze attack occurs with the chance of (Calculated Spirit Percentage / 2).
• Note: The chances of Outcome 2 and Outcome 3 are the same.
Does it mean when you have Shiny Sun > 100, you always have 50% for full negation and 50% for partial?
And there is no point having Sun > 100?

@Trace Da Cruz Only Devourers' paralysis was nerfed. Another mobs saved their ability to paralysis.

I think you're confusing two different values. The raw score listed on the character sheet, and the calculated resistance value that's the number magic the game does. See the Wiki for it's break down.

If you have a resistance score of 210, you get full resistance to stun and paralysis (If the game mechanic is working).

IF you have a RAW score of 100, you'd have a calculated resistance score of
50% + 15% + 7% = 72% (using the breakdown in the Wiki)
Which gives you:
28% chance of FULL effect
36% of HALF effect
36% of No Effect.

So even with a raw spirit resistance of 100, you have a 64% of getting stunned / paralyzed (full or half). So you can see how easy it would be to get stunned locked, even with high spirit resistance.

Oh, max equipment bonus to Sun is smal (90-110) and I thought resistance is linear proportional.

Resistance is NOT linear across the board. Read over the Wiki Resistance page.
There's an 1-for-1 ratio for values up to 50 but after that there's diminishing returns.

Note, Resistance to damage and Resistance to Stun / Paralysis different. They use a similar equation to calculate a Calculate Resistance Value (capitalized just for clarity) but how that value is applied is very different.

For damage, the Calculate Resistance Value reduces incoming damage by the same percentage (rounding occurs).
For Stun / Paralysis, the Calculated Resistance Value alters the chance of three outcomes of a Stun / Paralysis attack (Full, half, no effect).
