Perg is, as usual, absolutely correct. Even since level 75 it was very likely that a Paladin with an exceptional resist build backed up by the appropriate carol and Bar-element spell could resist even typically accurate spells like Break from Jailer of Faith, and TP moves like Carabosse's Cyclonic Torrent. Admittedly, I always keep the appropriate Bar-status spell on also, regardless of how much of a placebo they may be. Their extended durations mean that you only have to recast every other Bar-element spell anyway, so it's not that big of a deal.
The supplement that Empyrean armor offers to Bar-element spells makes them even more valuable, though it's difficult to quantify by how much, particularly on multi-element monsters like Pantokrator. The best defense here is to pick between Barthundra and Barblizzara and hope (I usually go with Barblizzara and Barparalyzra, since Paralysis is probably the most obnoxious ailment in the game.)
