Grasping limbs coiled around us, into us. We sank into each other,
then rose into the living sky. My family screams alongside me still."

  • Elemental Resistances are capped by your highest Maximum Elemental Resistance instead will override your non-highest Elemental Max Res values to be of an equivalent cap for calculating functional, overcapped, and missing resistances. Note that the actual resists will still have to be obtained through gear, passives, and skills.
    • For example, if your Max Resists are 85% Fire/75% Cold/76% Lightning, equipping this jewel will cause the player to be treated as if they had 85% Fire/85% Cold/85% Lightning Max Res.
    • In the above example, obtaining additional Cold or Lightning Max Res will not have effect, unless the value becomes 86% or greater, causing it to be the new highest Maximum Elemental Resistance. This is to prevent looping[1].
    • Even if only the highest Max Res is reduced (such as via Guardian of the Phoenix's stacking debuff), the other Max Res values will also functionally decrease (as you do not actually have 90% Cold or Lightning Max Res).
