How resist drain works?

If I use a weapon like Mercy, does the -10 resist drain apply first then the damage, or the damage apply first and the resist drain after ?

Assumed to be Before the drain…

Here’s the answer.


Ok thank you.

Complexly, (is this even a word?)

Resistance reduces damage. Damage will apply first before resistance drain.

Negative values will increase the damage you take. So you will die faster if your resistance is below zero.

This is why resistance is important. But the bad drop rates aren’t helping.
