Resistance Tips & Notes

  • The bonus from resistance is easy to miss, because it's applied silently. Hovering over the die roll with the cursor will show an unnamed bonus being applied.
  • Differences from D&D 5th Edition: In 5E, resistance only affects one saving throw during the duration rather than all of them.
