I'm currently speaking with the DM and another player, and we're having a disagreement. I'm looking at the Saint template, listed here. The issue is that I'm being told that at Level 12+ the Saint would only acquire 10/evil and that's it. The reasoning is that these DRs replace each other, rather than being gained. I believe that a Saint should receive the 10/evil AND 5/magic.
My DM and the other player are quoting the last line in the damage reduction rules here:
If a creature has damage reduction from more than one source, the two forms of damage reduction do not stack. Instead, the creature gets the benefit of the best damage reduction in a given situation.
My argument is that this does not support the given situation because this is about same type bonuses such as using two Rings of Fire Resistance to obtain an absurd level of resistance.
Which one of us is correct here?
