Sorry if I'm a bit dull today. lol
60% of 500 is 300, so 200 is left. Then it will be 10% of 200, which is 20, so 180 is left.
Which is obviously different from 60% of 500, then 10% of 500 (essentially making it 70% of 500), which would produce 150.
The diminishing returns is with the raw resistance numbers. I don't really know the specifics but it eventually takes a bigger amount of additional resistance for the additional 1% in damage reduction.
