Energy Resistance: Sorcerer Supreme vs. Hyperion

I recently r5 my Sorc Supreme and was checking out her stats, I noticed she has +2150 energy resistance listed as a passive ability. I was curious who this would compare to so I looked on Aunt Mai which lists Hyperion as having highest energy resistance in his base kit at 1131.

So my question now is if there’s a difference between energy resistance listed as passive ability, vs energy resistance listed in the base stats? And how would that difference manifest in the game? I do understand (I think, usually) the difference between active and passive debuffs/abilities, but I don’t see how that would apply to energy (or physical) resistance. Are there champions who can shut down or activate resistances based on if they’re base kit or passive ability?

Also does this mean Sorc Supreme has (almost double) the highest energy resistance in the game? I just looked up Havok and he has same passive ability number 2150 with 0 in the base kit. So Sorc Supreme is as effective against energy attacks as Havok?

    I think sorcerors hits deals energy damage (I may be wrong), so they will trigger havoks plasma, but if it detonates, sorceror might be able to tank it if its not too insane

    Yeah, that is sick. Just realized who I might save my generic AG for

    So is all energy resistance the same, or does it matter if it comes via passive, sig ability or base kit? If there’s no difference, it’s all just a number, why would they make some energy resistance listed as passive vs just putting it in their base stats?

    It will not be double the energy resist, aunt mai also has a “stat calc” in the drop down menu that will give you approximate values when you plug in the info.

    *there is also no difference.

    How about that max sig Mordo while blocking though?

    It’s like armour rating, no difference wether it’s an ability or just a base stat. Passive energy resistance and stat energy resistance are exactly the same.

    He has 7999 energy resistance.
    Maxed him out myself.

    That must be the 4* look at the 5.

    Wow, you’re not kidding. Mordo wins the energy resistance competition hands down, more than double max sig Guardian.

    Thanks for the responses
