Notes

  • While physical damage technically has no associated resistance, AV serves to decrease physical damage taken. However, AV also somewhat decreases damage of other types, thus making armor very important indeed.
  • If a limb had its last HP taken by a damage type that destroys limbs, it will not drop as a severed limb. Instead, several lumps of the monster's flesh are dropped.
  • Note that there is a slight distinction between damage taken from magical fireballs (from Wand of Fireballs or Dark Mage spells) and explosions (from mines) - fireballs deal pure fire damage, while explosions deal half fire, half physical damage. The result is that even monsters nearly immune to fire will take damage from an exploding landmine.
