So I always thought there was no diminishing return on resistance, and I remember I tested that in the past.
But after talking about it with a friend and looking at resistance numbers, now it seems there is a (fairly small) diminishing return afterall.

I did some tests with these results.

Build
109 from defense
10 from tank role
19 per defiance stack
Results per defiance stack
Expected 119
You lose 690 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/690-1=1.1739

Expected 119+19=138
You lose 636 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/636-1=1.3584

Expected 119+19*2=157
You lose 590 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/5902-1=1.5423

Expected 119+19*3=176
You lose 551 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/5512-1=1.7223

Expected 119+19*4=195
You lose 517 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/5172-1=1.90135

Expected 119+19*5=214
You lose 488 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/4882-1=2.0737

Expected 119+19*6=233
You lose 462 (1500) Fire Damage from Blue Beam.
Calculated 1500/462-1=2.24675

Just to be sure it's not defiance I also tested with cold resist mods.

Build
100 from defense
50 per cold resist mod
Results per mod
Expected 1
X deals 5378 (10684) Cold Damage to you with Icicle Spear.
Calculated 10684/5378-1=0.986

Expected 1.5
X deals 2149 (5301) Cold Damage to you with Icicle Spear.
Calculated 5301/2149-1=1.466

Expected 2
X deals 1719 (5039) Cold Damage to you with Icicle Spear.
Calculated 5039/1719-1=1.931
Is this something new, or has it always worked like this?
