Chaos damages is poiboy in some cases, but not constantly. Chaos damages ignores armour, elepsychological resistances and energy shield. The only method so far to have resistance (in this case immunity) to chaos damages is by acquiring Chaos Inoculation from passive abilities tree. If you have actually high evasion you can dodge some chaos attacks (favor the "Viper Strike").

You watching: Chaos damage does not bypass energy shield

With the release of Open Beta, numerous creates of chaos resistance currently exist in enhancement to Chaos Inoculation, consisting of numerous nodes, armor affixes, and chaos resistance flasks.

It bypasses power shield, not resistances. If you have actually chaos resistance, you will certainly take less damages from it, but I haven"t viewed a single chaos resistance item dropped yet, as of Act 3. However, you can gain chaos resistance from a skill list.

It"s an additional damage type, apart from elepsychological. Reduced by resistance to it, similar to elepsychological, going upto 75%

What"s unique about it:

a. It bypasses power shield, and also hits life direct! (thus chaos innoculation).

b. Chaos resistance is mainly tough to come by. Much rarer on tree and also gear. Right now no chaos stand up to auras favor the elemental purities. This is true on monsters too. Chaos resist is rare on monsters and no chaos resist map mods.

c. Arguably the many crucial - it cannot be reflected! There"s elepsychological and phys reflect, but no chaos reflect.

It"s not "poison" yet Poikid results deal chaos damage. Many meta builds now make use of poichild scaling btw. Triple entente - chaos/gem scaling double dip, no reflect and also exceptionally little bit monster resistance.
