I would think you can unless you run into packs of monsters that are completely immune to whatever spells and attacks your character has. The more players in the game the harder the monsters are so I think its doable. I think it is safe to assume there are/will be monsters that are immune to physical and/or magic damage though.

So if it's immune to ice why not put on fire spells? You're not screwed like you are in D2.

There are monsters that are immune to magic, period. There used to be in ubers in DII so like I said it is probably safe to assume they'll be in DIII as well.

When a mob was magic immune in D2, a sorc didn't melee them down did they?

As well as physical immunity. Barbs would still melee them down I'm pretty sure. Maybe they are like 99% immunities and specific like fire or ice are 100%.

I'm pretty sure I've heard that monsters will not be 100% immune to anything. If you come across a fire immune let's say, you can still do damage with fire spells although greatly reduced.

A sorc had other party members that could deal with them haha. IIRC necromancers were a must for ubers as they had summons to deal physical damage as well as a couple of nukes for magic damage.

You could be right, I'm not sure. But in your example what if the monster has a buff like regen or life leech? Couple of examples.

Sorcs had no problem with magic immunity, as none of their spells dealt magic damage xD. The paladin blessed hammers are the most common form of magic damage, and they ignored immunities on undead monsters until the 1.13 patch. That made there be only one or two monsters in the game that couldn't be hurt by hammerdins. Now they can't hurt the second wave on baal, making things a little more balanced.

When the monster was immune to your damage type, (like the physical immune and a barb trying to melee), they ignored all the damage. So your barb would have to rely on whatever +elemental damage he has on items.... pretty slow going for a hell monster. Most Physical immunes could be broken with amplify damage though, you'd want some charges of that on your switch.

That is what I've heard as well; no complete immunes.

Smiterdin with lifetap was the most common way of doing the ubers. You didn't even need fancy runewords. Just shop for a wand with lifetap charges at akara, then get some random shield with decent damage and some crushing blow items. It is doable with necro, but that seems incredibly slow given their massive HP.

Also remember there is conviction and lower resist to break elemental immunities. If those spells brought the monsters resist below 100%, it would loose the immunity and you could hurt it. The runeword "infinity" broke most monsters' lightning resists.

There are still elemental resistances, both on monsters and players, so damage type can come into play both in PvE and PvP. There isn’t a ton of resistance around though, so it’s not something that stacks super high, and there’s no elemental immunity. Skills also differ enough that you’ll have some outs if you do run into an enemy with high resistance. (it’s not D2 where you just spam your 1 skill and if you come up against an enemy that’s resistant to that 1 skill you’re screwed)
