Resist Lightning increases the Paladin's lightning resist. It also gives a passive bonus. For every two hard points invested into Lightning Resist, the Paladin gets a passive +1 to maximum lightning resist that is active at all times regardless of whether the aura is turned on or not. So with 20 points invested (not counting + skill items), the maximum lightning resist of the Paladin would be 85 instead of the regular 75.
Even the elements of nature must yield before the glory of the Light. When a knight of Zakarum has manifested this aura, he and his allies undergo a lessening of their body's natural conductivity, protecting them from attacks empowered by electricity.
