In patch 2.5, Sunder Charms were added to Diablo 2 Resurrected. Many people don't understand how the season 2 Sunder Charm works in Diablo 2 Resurrected. You're reading it wrong. We are going to explain it to you real quick.


D2R Ladder 2.5 Sunder Charm: Drop Rate Negative Effect, Sunder Effect, Physical Damage & Tips

The Sunder effect and the negative resistance are mutually exclusive. The Sunder effect is positive, it is something that helps you. The negative effect is negative, it is something that hurts you. We are making this D2R ladder 2.5 Sunder Charms guide to help clear up a lot of these misconceptions. Because many people are confused and think that the negative resistance is actually being applied to the monster. Or think that the physical damage received on the bone break charm is actually increasing their damage. There is a lot going on here with the craziness involved around the Diablo 2 Season 2 Sunder Charms.


D2R 2.5 Sunder Charm Drop Rates

Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.5 Ladder Sunder Charms, in terms of drop rate, are unique charms like Gheed's Fortune that drop "quite regularly" or rather an extremely uncommon rune like Ber or Jah. While Gheed's Fortune takes just level 62 to wear, Sunder Charms demands level 75 (the item level is roughly about 80), implying that the drop chance will be slightly lower.

D2R 2.5 Sunder Charm Negative Effect

The negative 75% reduces your resistance by 75%. If you put on the second one of these thunder charms. you will see that resistance will continue to fall as you take and put off the charm, you can clearly see your resistances go down. It's actually ripping your resistances away and the more resistances you have ripped away, the less you take like literally to the point where you can have negative resistances. If I have enough of these Thunder charms on your character, you will continually fall and fall and fall until you literally in at maximum negative 100%.


The negative effect of these charms is a negative to you, not a positive to the monster. A lot of you for some reason are mistaking the negative resistance on these charms to mean that it is giving you a negative 75% to enemy resistance. It is not giving you negative 75% enemy resistance that is not how Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.5 Sunder Charms work. 


D2R 2.5 Sunder Charm Sunder Effect

The sundering effect which is separate from the resistance sets the monster's resistance to 95%. That is all, it does nothing else. So once the monster is at 3000% cold resistance, they are set to 95. if the monster is at 99% cold resistance, they are set to 95. if the monster is at 110% cold resistance they are set to 95. That is all the sundering does, it takes the monster's resistance whatever it is, however high it is and it sets it to 95. 


D2R 2.5 Sunder Charm Physical Damage

Some people are trying to say that the physical damage number on here is increasing your actual physical damage output and they had to actually reword. Because everybody's been reading it wrong and they're assuming that the percentage on the bone break charm was actually increasing their physical damage. The truth is it doesn't increase your physical damage, it increases the amount of physical damage that you take. So if you take a look at your advanced stats, it says physical damage received increased by 25%. It actually physically causes you more pain.


Another thing is that they vary, so people have been assuming that the percentage that's written on the charm is how much it's reducing the monster's resistance. People have been assuming that the higher percentage is better and the lower percentage is terrible. Because why would you want a negative 70% to the enemy's resistance when you could get a negative 90? But it's actually the exact opposite. The negative 90 is the terrible one because that is reducing your resistance by 90, whereas the negative 70 which is the lower-end version is only reducing your resistance by 70 so you have less of a negative. 


D2R Sunder Charms 2.5 Tips

The entire idea behind the D2R Ladder Season 2 Sunder Charms is there is a positive and there is a negative. There is a good benefit that gives you something that you want. But there's also a bad thing that does something nasty to you like poking you in the eye and giving you a booger enema. Whatever it is, it's doing something bad to you in return for the good thing that it's doing and that's what Diablo2 Sunder Charms 2.5 do. They have one good and one bad effect. Just make sure that you're understanding what these effects are. If you want a lower percentage on the charm, the lowest percentage is the best. The Sunder Charms reduce the monster's resistance to 95 effectively breaking that immunity. But they do not do all the work for you.


You have to also have negative enemy resistance in the form of other D2R items. For instance, a crescent moon has negative 35% enemy lightning. A wiz and draw which has negative 35% and be cold. The flickering flame has negative 15% enemy fire and so forth and so on a death's web which has negative poison resistance. If you don't have a specific item that is going to reduce the monster's resistance further, they are still going to be at 95 resistance and they are still going to be relatively unkillable. 95 resistance is still a lot of resistance. If you dish out a thousand damage to a monster, take away 95 of a thousand and how much damage are you left with? It's not a lot. The monster is going to laugh at you because it's like you're literally throwing rocks at him.
