Have a good day Travelers!

As a newcomer, I’m surprised to see so little Physical Resist in these three builds. I don’t see 100% conversion of physical damage taken to Fire damage taken (crown of ash is 40-80). Is it just itemization optimization / OK for endgame to build like that?

You want to have a 70%+ roll of physical conversion.

at 70%+ Conversion and having 0% Physical resist youll take about the same amount of damage as you would have if you have 75% physical resist and 0 Conversion.

this is because the 70%+ Being converted to fire is so greatly reduced by all the less fire damage taken.

Of course if you have room to fit in physical resist as well… there no reason not to
