Defense Stats & Mechanics, Diablo 4 Armor & Elemental Defense

Here is everything related to your defense:

  • life, your health total
  • armor, your reduction in damage taken
  • chance to dodge, the attack will not do any damage
  • resistance to each element
  • armor contribution

The armor contribution helps in part resisting the elements. That is to say that a portion of the damage inflicted by an element will be absorbed first by the armor, then by the elemental resistance.
