Anyone who has been banging their head on the lvl 20 wall knows that Agony does hurt a lot more than in 19.
While searching for the specifics on how agony and resistance acts, I havent found anything for outside the 10s "Tier".
What we know now is that at 10-19, Agony ticks for 1/8th of your max health.
With 5 resistance it is 1/16th of your max health.
With 10 you take no damage.
Running lvl 20 with 0 resistance (unlucky and poor), I've noticed that agony has been hitting me for maybe 1/4th of my health per tick (probably more). I usually go down maybe the 3rd or 4th tick
And from what I observed from my party members with 5, 10, and 15 resistance, it hasnt been as easy as 5 resistance reduces it by half. The people with 5 resistance was dying just as quick as me and 10 and 15 were still getting kinda hurt but not as bad.
From what I can surmise,
Depending on the "Tier" you are in agony it changes damage.
10's it deals 1/8th per tick
20's 1/4 (or whereabouts)
Also, from what I have observed, resistance doesnt change from tier to tier.
It just reduces the damage taken by agony by a "Fixed" amount.
5 resistance reduces the damage taken by 1/16th of your max health.
10 by 1/8 (2/16)
15 by 3/16
That is just my speculation with little observation.
Does anyone have any testing or more accurate information? Or is my speculation correct or near correct?
