What exactly do block and magic resistance do?

    I read somewhere that a blocked attack has its slashing/crushing/explosion damaged multiplied by 1/4 and its exotic damage multiplied by 1/2. Is this accurate? Also, is it possible to block an attack that contains only exotic damage?

    What about magic resistance?

    Quoting from dredmod.com;

    :block: Block
    percentage chance that you will halve the damage from an opponent's successful physical attack

    :magic_resist: Magic Resistance
    percentage chance to halve incoming spell damage. Successfully resisting an effect also prevents harmful status conditions, debuffs, and DoT effects.
