So for giggles I did one of the FoV NMs and traded in one of my Drone earrings. Was hoping for STR +1, but no luck. Got Light +6 instead.

I've never really paid much attention to elemental resistance stuff in this game and had a question.

Does this elemental stuff only affect elemental resistances or does it help offensively as well? Would light + 6 help with light shot for instance ? Or help stick holy damage with a holy bolt?

I imagine it doesn't but it would be sweet if it did.

Gear with resistance + barspells= help defensively only.

Day + weather = Help with offensively both in a negative and positive way. Also technically makes you weaker by helping the mob offensively if the mob nukes you using same element as weather/day.

Keep in mind that day + weather doesn't always kick in unless you got the appropriate obi.

No it's only for defense against elemental damage of the type shown (in this case it Light+6).

Look at your equipment to see what your elemental resistence totals are between gear, WHM's bar-spells and a BRD's carol songs.

Basically it increases your chance to "resist" magic of the element, with different levels of resistence such as taking 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, or 1/16 damage.

Here's a link to the wiki page for resistance: [link=http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Resistance[/link]

As I thought. Too bad. Be nice if it worked both ways.
