I have several items equipped that increase my saves, such as this jade ring: http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Item:Jade_Ring


Resistance +1: This item offers magical protection in the form of a +1 resistance bonus on all saves.

However when I equip it or any of my other items, the change is not shown on my character page. Is this normal? Are the bonuses still being applied? Is there any way I can check this?

Also, one of the other items (which name eludes me) states that it increases the save against spells.

Also also, can this ring stack?

I think "saves" and "Saves against all spells" should stack(it won't show up in your status screen even if it does stack). But if you had a +1 to all saves it wouldn't stack with a +1 to reflex save ring. You would only get +1. I'm pretty sure + save vs spells specifically do not show up on your character stats saves. (and they shouldn't, because a lot of saves are not based on spells)

Bonuses of the same type don't stack. In this case, if you have more than one source of resistance bonus, only the highest bonus will apply.

So, it won't display in my character page, but that's normal.

And I have two items that give me Resistance +1, and two that give me Will Save +1. If I'm understanding this correctly, I can use 1 of each items, for +1 to fortitude and reflex, and +2 to will?

no, cause they dont stack
just take your one resistance +1 which increases all saves by +1

Items generally give "enhancement" bonuses. "Enhancements" bonuses do not stack with other enhancement bonuses.
