I thought of one that could be added:

Elemental Resistance: Gain Resist 5 to one element - acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic. (Prereq: lvl 5)
Improved Elemental Resistance: Upgrade to Resist 10. (Prereq: Elemental Resistance [same element], lvl 8)
Greater Elemental Resistance: Upgrade to Resist 20. (Prereq: Imp.ER [same element], lvl 12)
Superior Elemental Resistance: Upgrade to Immunity. (Prereq: Gr.ER [same element], lvl 16)

Possibly with the rarer elements (Divine/Profane, Force, etc.) available at one tier behind (so ER Force 5 could be available at lvl 8, when the normal five elements would be able to upgrade to 10, and you can never reach Immunity).

Thoughts?

I'd love to have'em. Even cold resistance 5 will help Jaekah immensely.

I think Immunity is a bit much.  There's not many items with comparable enchantments.  My suggestion would be to make it levels 5/10/15.

The rarer ones I could see being available at 8 and 16 (with resist 5 and resist 10).

5/10/15 with no immunity seems much more fair, yet still potent.


Should Sonic be lumped with Fire/Ice/Acid/Cold, though? It's usually thrown in the likes of Force damage, and... Well, outside of the Darksong, it usually doesn't come up as often. (though Bliv does make more use of it than other DM's I've seen)

I don't suppose those would stack with a class feature? =3

Honestly, the way it's set up, it's actually almost better than the spellscar revelation that grants the same thing for all elements, even if you do need to spam it several times as an inherent. It certainly scales faster.

Yeah, but the Spellscar has the advantage of being all elements - this you have to pick one individually. Since they'd operate the same as an item, no no stacking unfortunately.

@Bella: I thought there were immunity rings, but apparently they're not in PF if they existed at all. Ring of Energy Resistance tops out at 30 instead. So I'd say scale 5/10/20/30.

Was there a final verdict on elemental resistance bonuses?
