Resistance to Energy
A creature with resistance to energy has the ability (usually extraordinary) to ignore some damage of a certain type (such as cold, electricity, or fire) each round, but it does not have total immunity.
Each ability is defined by what energy type it resists and how many points of damage are resisted.
The creature still makes saving throws normally.
Count the creature's resistance from the start of its turn to the start of its turn the next round. Its resistance "resets" on its turn.
When resistance completely negates the damage from an energy attack, the attack does not disrupt a spell.
This resistance does not stack with the resistance that a spell, such as endure elements, might provide.
