Barrier Barrier is an attribute, exclusive to The Three Brothers The Three Brothers DLC. It is a resistance stat which only affects Elemental-type damage (Ethereal Lightning Decay Frost Fire).

Barrier does not work against DoTs.


Against attacks which deal a single element, Barrier works the same way as Protection, reducing the damage by a flat amount. However if the attack contains multiple damage types, it will only resist one of them. First it will pick the element(s) from the damage which you have the lowest resistance for (less than or equal to comparison), then from those it picks the type which would deal the most damage against you and resists that.

For example, suppose that an incoming attack deals 100 Fire damage and 1 Ethereal damage, and that you have 5 Barrier, 50 Fire Resistance and 0 Ethereal Resistance. Because you have lower Ethereal than Fire resistance, this will be the element that is resisted by Barrier (in this case, reducing the Ethereal damage to 0 and doing nothing else).

For another example, suppose that you now have 10 Fire and 10 Ethereal resistance against the same attack. It would choose to resist Fire because you have equal Resistances to both elements, and the Fire damage would have dealt more. In this case, it would reduce the Fire damage to 95 (100 damage - 5 Barrier).
