Items like Ascalonian Eggnog give you resistance buffs which weakens the amount of damage you take. This brings up the same issue that the Turtle Master Potions did. It causes less skillful types of PvP to become overpowered(Crystal Spam). This Resistance buff gives people the ability to crystal 3 times consecutively with little to no reprecussions. causing little to no counterplay to approaching the middleground.
