# Monster resistances

## Overview

Monster base resistances are derived from the resistance group their monster type is in.

Monster resistances are not final and may be further modified by buffs, map mods, monster mods, auras, curses and other sources.

Monster resistances are capped:

- 75% to maximum Chaos Resistance
- 75% to maximum Cold Resistance
- 75% to maximum Fire Resistance
- 75% to maximum Lightning Resistance
