Impunity is a rune effect in War Cry, a Fury-generating Barbarian skill.

This rune effect grants a huge increase to all of the Barbarian's resistances, boosting them all by 50%. Remember that resistances in Diablo III are not on the same percent scale that they were in Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. Resistances are a value now, like Armor or damage, and the higher the number the more damage is mitigated. Thus the higher a Barbarian's resistances, the bigger a bonus this effect provides. A Barbarian with 200 resistance would go to 300 for a 100 point gain. A Barbarian with 500 resistances would go to 750, a 250 point gain.
