gameplay] This is how much of certain types of damage one can ignore. Example: 10% resistance to fire means that every time one is struck with a fire-based attack, one takes 10% less damage from it.* Builder note: Setting a mob to be resistant to a certain type of damage implies 20% resistance. See also: WARDS, IMMUNITY, SUSCEPTABILITY.
Immunity to infection.
The sum total of body mechanisms that interpose barriers to the invasion or multiplication of infectious agents, or to damage by their toxic products. Inherent resistance - an ability to resist disease independent of immunity or of specifically developed tissue responses; it commonly resides in anatomic or physiologic characteristics of the host and may be genetic or acquired, permanent or temporary. (See Immunity) (Synonym: Nonspecific Immunity).
Due to viscosity, drag forces and frontal resistance, water provides resistance proportional to the effort exerted against it. Experts say resistance to movement can range from approximately four to 42 times greater in water than air, making water a natural and instantly adjustable weight-training machine. Unlike most land-based exercise, water can strengthen both sides of the muscle pair simultaneously. For instance, an arm curl works both biceps and triceps, because there is resistance to the movement in both directions of the exercise. Water's resistance can be increased with speed and/or surface area and is proportional to the effort required to move against it. Adding water fittness equipment can increase resistonce to strengthen and tone the muscles.
