When fighting in combat, players and monsters inflict Damage on each other. This damage reduces the HP of the target, and when enough has been done that creature is defeated. Healing can be used to regain some of that lost HP, and Resistance will reduce the initial Damage received.
Most damage is done as a specific elemental type. Bonuses and resistance to specific elements are handled individually though some equipment enhances all 4 elements equally, represented by this icon .
Resistance can not reduce damage below base damage.
Secondary Damage Bonus
Damage can also be modified by different damage bonuses. These bonuses can come from various things such as equipment, food, spells, and buffs. The types of damage are as follows:
|Critical Damage||Critical Damage applies to damage done on Critical Hits|
|Berserk Damage||Berserk Damage applies to damage done inflicted when the
attacker is under 50% max HP
|Close-Combat Damage||Close-Combat Damage applies to any damage inflicted to a
target two cells or closer from the caster.
|Long-Range Damage||Long-Ranged Damage applies to any damage inflicted
to a target three or more cells away from the caster.
|Single Target Damage||Single Target Damage increase the damage inflicted on
single targets by spells and weapons.
|Area-of-effect Damage||Area of Effect Damage increases the damage inflicted
on multiple targets by spells and weapons.
|Heals||Heals improves the effectiveness of healing spells|
|CMC Damage||CMC Damage apples to the creatures and mechanisms
Elemental damage is the amount a spell will hurt(or heal) a target before final damage. The elemental damage of a spell can be calculated with the following formula:
Elemental Damage = Base Damage * (Backstab Bonus) * (1 + [Elemental Damage Bonus + Secondary Damage Bonus]/100) * (1 - [Elemental Resistance/100])
Backstab Bonus' base is 1.25 for back and 1.10 for sides, but can be changed with Damage/Reistance from Behind bonuses. See Backstab for full formula.
Although the elemental damage bonus of fighters is additive, elemental resistance is calculated differently. Resistance gained is added in flat numbers instead of percentage like damage. This flat number is then converted to a elemental resistance percentage and then displayed. Elemental resistance can be calculated with the following formula:
Elemental Resistance = 1 - 0.8^(Flat Resist/100)
- Note: Elemental Resistance reduction from spells (debuffs) is maxed at -200
Final Damage is applied after all elemental modifiers have been calculated, it affects the final damage outcome. This modifier is applied to all damage regardless of element type. Final damage can be calculated with the following formula:
Final Damage = Elemental Damage * (1 + Final Damage Bonus/100)
- A negative value of Resistance is often referred to as "Weakness"
- "Resistance" is often shortened to "Resist"
