New Glimpse of Chaos Helmet *Possibly?* bugged

So I wanted to give the helmet a try as both getting a powerful implicit with basically a 'free'+60 Chaos Resist on a character you would otherwise ignore Chaos Resist seemed pretty good to me...however...

The wording on each like of text specifically uses the word 'REDUCED'. I always thought that multipliers in PoE used the words 'More/Less'.

So for example, I'll take one line and explain what I am seeing on my character sheet, and I'm not sure if this is intended or not.

"40% increased maximum life and reduced fire resistance"

That would be the line. I could be wrong, but I assumed that means I get 40% more hp, at the cost of 40% fire resist. So if I had 80% fire resist, I would instead now have 40%. However, this is NOT the case.

The reduced fire resistance portion is applying as a MULTIPLIER. So if I gain +10% fire resistance anywhere, I actually only gain 6%, and that is for every single piece of gear you wear.

So basically you need 135% added to a resist to cap it under normal circumstances. You would *think* with this helmet you would then need 175%. However, you actually need about 290% resist to cap out instead. Oooof!

It just the same (increase/reduce) wording as Eye of Malice...
I am not a GGG employee.

Thanks for your report, this is intended.

Flat Resistance values are worded as "+10% to Fire Resistance".

As neohongkong mentioned, Increases/Reductions to Resistances already exist on Eye of Malice and you can also find them on the unique Blight Helmets.

More/Less to Resistances can also be found on Tempered by War Keystone.
