Secondary Resistances

For ADCTH, sure. But it’d also reduce the damage of Life Leech, which is more common than you’d think.

Vitality resistance helps against Reduction to enemy’s health, Menhir’s bulwark protect against Life pool reductions, thats the different things.

One of us is trolling and/or not seeing things, and it’s not me.

The green Demonic affixes with LL reduction don’t exist below level 50. I don’t know about the rest of you, but my characters kill Log on Veteran and have nothing left to do but the Hidden Path well before 50. Guardian of Solael with no LL reduction is not a pleasant fight. Or maybe the way to go is to just start Elite at 47ish and come back to Veteran for the Hidden Path at 55, 60, whenever it is that a couple of Demonic-prefixed gear pieces drop.

Well, we could say that that’s hard to call that life leech, since it’s a trash mob that you’ll probably oneshot no matter what. :stuck_out_tongue: But yeah, I didn’t know about that.

I never had issues with those monsters. I play full vanilla game with Lokarr set, and only sometimes change it after level 50+ and only when I start AoM. I most of the time just facetank them if I can outheal them. If I can’t facetank, I just run in circles and kite or (most of the time) have enough damage to kill those bosses under 10 seconds (sometimes even under 5).

Also, Guardian of Solael doesn’t have Life Leech, but life reduction.
I believe you die to the purple poop he spawn on the floor and his purple breath thing. Both are very easy to dodge, and aside of those, he doesn’t have anything else that could hurt you in any way. Imo, the weakest of the Hidden Path bosses.
