Elemental Resistance compared to MDB?Follow

I figure this would be a good forum to ask as far as the relationship of Elemental resistance from say Barspells or equipment compared to Magic Defense Bonus. I was rereading the group1 merit category for the barspell enhancement, and I was wondering if it means that every point of Elemental Resistance is one point of MDB against that particular element. If not, is there somewhere that might show a relational formula between the two?

Thanks for your time.

They aren't really directly related, the merits just give bonuses to each one.

What the game refers to as resistance is really more like "magic evasion". It's possible to say, cast Barfire and give yourself a whole **** ton of fire resistance, but it is still quite possible to not resist a fire attack and still get hit for 100% damage.

Things like merits and the Blessed Briault also add MDB to the Barspells though, which actually does reduce the damage of the appropriate elemental attack regardless of whether or not you resist ("evade") it.
