Why yes I do know what a search feature is. However with the 1000 returns it is hard to dig through all that. So I ask in posts.

It's looking like you're already trying to go after tacking on Defense a bit early.
I've learned this lesson with Rad (and Resist-based sets) in general.
DO NOT DO THIS.
You have no DDR.  And you're moving into the level range where Defense debuffs land HEAVY.
And if something can reliably crack your Defenses, you're screwed, because you've jacked your build around to push Defense.

Better option is to build towards maximum available Resist.
Near the end of your build, you can tack on some Defense if you want.  Sort of an anti-Alpha Strike setup that you can treat as disposable/ablative.

At GenCon right now or I'd take a bit to pull a build together for you.
 

If you want to be godlike, pick anything.

If you want to be GOD, pick a TANK!

I revamped my Mace / Rad build (so thank you for that. got me +10% s/l resists to the cap) and then palette swapped Mace to Stone to give this. Not sure you actually want Hurl Boulder 6 slotted like that but adjust as you see fit. Obviously if you wanted to go "full bore" slotting some Winters in would give you better s/l defense, better Fire/Cold resists and (probably more importantly) decent -Recharge resistence.

What Hyperstrike says is totally true as well. Not only is building Resists building to your strengths but also as you approach 90% each point of extra resist becomes more valuable.

 

For example my Rad was at 80% smashing/lethal resists. I respecced them and used Bombardment sets and doctored wounds and preventitive med pairs to eke out 10% more. 

 

So where before if someone hit me for 1000 damage I'd take 200. Now I take 100. In other words I doubled how much smashing / lethal damage I can take, all by slotting 2 pairs of doctored wounds and 2 pairs of preventative and replacing my Positrons Blasts with Bombardments. 

 

Def works the same, as you approach 45% a 1% increase becomes very valuable. The difference is of course that one Ring Mistress can strip that right back down on you, or a lucky gun shot can do the same, because you've no DDR. One shot can fall you back from being hit 1 time in 10 or 20 to being hit half the time.

 

Since high resistance always gives you high resist debuff resistance the same thing won't happen on a high Res build.

Also, on the damage end.  Use the DPS calculator in Mids to figure out your optimal attack chain.
Try to optimize toward that attack chain.

And here's a badly scanned (ran out of slots) build that's basically going after heavy Resist outside of Meltdown or ROP.
