Any bards out there able to answer this?

Does Resonance (Voice of the Serpent) stack with Harmonize? (Sorrowsong cloak or Bloodfiend's Throat Gem)

Camped the Voice of the Serpent to see for myself. Confirmed: Harmonize overrides Resonance.

According to my own little experiment, this gives 85% increase to singing songs. I did POV with and without it. 269 magic resists without, 315 with. 269/315 = .853968 ect... which concludes, it must be about 85% more effective with songs, not 60%.

269/315 tells you that 269 = ~85% of 315

315 is not an 85% increase over 269. In fact, 315 is about a 17% increase over 269.

((315*100)/269) = 117%

315 is 117% of 269
315 is 17% greater than 269

You're both wrong. But nice attempts at math anyway. You forgot that you start with a basic magic resist, before PoV (with or without Resonance). When you calculate that in you get rougly 1.6x un-resonance PoV magic resist (on top of your base MR) when using resonance. This is because resonance adds .6 to singing mod.

Otherwise your calculated percentage for resonance's singing mod bonus would be dependent upon your base MR which has absolutely nothing to do with the singing mod.

No math was required but feel free to try it sometime:

(Resonance PoV MR)-(Non-PoV MR)
(Non-Resonance PoV MR)-(Non-PoV MR) ========= ~ 1.591 ish

Actually, tchzarmok is correct in his statement. His statement is one of pure math, which is technically correct. He made no mention of how the math relates to the boost.
Does VoS still drop?

This adds .6 to the singing mod and not 6 to your singing skill as this states
