I can understand the resistance to CC applying to magnitude, but KB is strong because of the animation lock. Even if you have the ULTIMATE RESISTANCE to knockback, being affected by it to the LESSER extent possible is still a huge advantage. The animation lock and disable time (falling down, standing up) against characters with high Willpower is stronger than any other CC effect.

Please consider altering KB resistance to affect the CHANCE of getting KB'ed as well. Just decreasing the KB magnitude means very little in practice.
