    I'm curious what is the formula for spell resistance?

    E.g. Domination has 10% chance to be resisted. What happens if the caster has tower of alteration (-20% to enemy resistance) and archmage has metamagic 3 - as far as I understand it modifies targets resistance by -5% for each level. Do I get 94.5% chance to dominate target now?

    Add all modifiers to get chance to resist. Base is 20, min is 5. Max is full 100

    So for Your example

    Base Resist (20)
    Spell Base (+10 = 30)
    Archmage Bonus (-5*3 = 15)
    Tower Bonus (-20 = -5)
    fix to Minimum (5)

    So a 5% chance to resist

    Ahh, didn't know about base 20 and min 5. Guess I'll save this spell for more interesting targets then.
