Hellfire warlock + racial resist bug

Unread post by subedai »

Hi,

Just checking if this is still a known bug?
Currently I have Tiefling 5/fire, hellfire 10/fire and warlock 5/fire but only ever resist 10.
These are meant to stack right?

No. Most bonuses of the same type don't stack with the exception of skills and dodge AC.

The description in the wiki says otherwise?

Resistance to Fire
At 2nd level, you gain resistance to fire 10. This resistance stacks with any resistance to fire you have gained from warlock class levels.

I think that's just incorrect then, elemental resistance, DR, SR, and AC generally don't stack.

Actually in this case the wiki is correct as to the fact that the resistance to fire should stack, but I am unsure how you'd fix such a bug. While the Hellfire Warlock should stack with fire to give a total of 15/- the Tiefling resistance would not stack to give 20/-. Basically it is supposed to work like how Warlock Energy Resistance increases from 5 to 10 at level 20 and 15 at 30. So a Warlock 27/HFW3 would have 20/- total resistance to fire if it worked correctly. However, because of the reasons already stated that energy resistance from different sources never stack that is also the case with Hellfire Warlock. It is a bug, but I do not know if it can be fixed and wiki has been updated to reflect that due to a bug resistance to fire won't stack, so a different element should be chosen for Warlock resistance.

its the warlock feat thats messed up, it would need to be replaced with the normal energy resistance feat or basically copied to work with it somehow
