    Default Fireproof Goggles Passive +20 Fire Resistance GARBAGE

    Passive +20 Fire Resistance. Which I thought meant Fire Resistance +20 from a 7th level spell. Nope.



    Put it on, and all it does is reduce fire damage by 3. This is like the old days of lesser fire resistance.

    Garbage.

    The more I dig into the new loot, the more it becomes garbage.

    Seriously? The developer puts wording on a magic item that basically states that it functions like what loot functioned like before August 19, but is a complete lie.

    Was it 20, or 20%? They come in both flavors now.

    Unfortunately, this does not make the loot better. It's all mostly still garbage.

    Basically all the new gear has been feathered.

    It looks nice but is basically worthless.

    another classic turbine achievement.

    How hard was it for me to test this? I put the goggles on and checked my fire resistance. THREE was the number, which is better than ZERO. Gee Thanks.

    I have no idea what to tell you, beyond Bug report it.

    but now I am wondering how many and how much the passive effects are not working as stated.

    I happened across a +15 Fireproof item (gloves, I think) after reading this and got 15 out of it. *shrug*

    How odd.. i just pulled a pair of min level 7 fire resist +20 goggles in tear of dhakaan and they only gave +3 fire resist. If some peoples items are working perhaps it is a bug in lower level or newly looted ones.
