In order to survive the unforgiving lands of the north, the people of the Barbarian tribes have developed hardy resistances to the common elements. Heat and cold alike are something they endure often. Since food is scarce while foraging, they have learned to consume species of plants that would slay normal men. Through additional training, a warrior can further fortify himself against these dangers, allowing him to better survive while traveling to unfamiliar lands and battling unknown foes.
Natural Resistance is a Barbarian passive skill, thus constantly in effect once learned. This type of skill does not use mana. This skill makes the Barbarian more resistant against Fire, Cold, Lightning and Poison damage, reducing the amount of damage received by elemental attacks. Augmenting this skill increases the resistance bonuses even more and more, from a 12% resistance bonus in Level 1 to a 67% bonus in Level 20. With every level earned, the bonus is smaller. The boost at low levels is much smaller than that provided by the Paladin's Salvation skill (which starts at 60% at level 1), but unlike Salvation, Natural Resistance provides a permanent bonus, and offers protection against Poison damage, which Salvation doesn't.
This skill does not increase the Magic resistance, and the Barbarian doesn't have a skill which protects him especially from Magic damage, nor does anyone else.
