Subject: Resistances: Tiered or not?
   Theres some debate in my guild whether or not resistances are tiered. Let me explain what I mean by this. Say that, hypothetically, having a resistance between 201 and 250 is "Very Good," and a resistance between 251 and 300 is "Excellent." Do I see an increase in magical damage mitigation on a point by point basis (ie 230 versus 240) or will I only see a difference when I change tiers (ie 250 versus 251, thus jumping from "Very Good" to "Excellent")?

   As I understand it, Lor, the calculations for average magical resistance are merely mathematical equations based on the level of the caster, the level of the target, and the target's resistance to a given school of magic. Thus, the amount of mitigation would be affected by each numerical increase, rather than merely the "tier" in which that value happens to fall. To use your examples, you would see a greater increase between 230 and 240 than you would between 250 and 251, even if the latter marked the introduction of a new tier. :)
That's why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit...
