Sorry for a bit of a lame question, but what exactly does magic resistance mean in BG? Does it cover just magic damage or all magic effects?
So, for example, if a creature has 50% magic resistance and you fire 4 magic missiles at it, does it mean there is 50% chance each of these missiles hitting the creature doing full damage, or does it mean each of the 4 missiles will hit it but do just half the damage? Or both of these? Also, does it impact every spell thrown at the creature (apart from those which bypass magic resistance), so e.g. throwing dire charm at it has 50% of being automatically blocked and in other 50% of occasions the saving throw is rolled?
Finally, is there a way to know from the fight log whether a creature has high (100% or more) magic resistance (so, spells like Lower Resistance would work to increase chances of some spells landing) or is completely immune to a spell (in which case there is no point in using Lower Resistance)? Or is the output the same in both cases, i.e. just 'Magic resistance'?
