    Split damage is strongest damage?

    Post by LunarFog on Sun May 19, 2013 11:56 pm

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    As far as my understanding about damage goes:
    1.) Split damage is weaker than pure damage because it has 2 defenses to bypass
    3.) Backstabbing negates most defense.


    Does that mean that elemental backstabs would do more than pure-physical backstabs?

    Well, it is true for the Chaos Rapier +5. So, maybe...

    This is prenerf, where Chaos does marginally more damage. Postnerf, +15 wins for criticals. It's not up for debate.

    Since the nerf pure damage has always been better.

    Normal

    Pretty safe to say that 552 pure physical will do more than 619 (272-347) split.

    Hmpf, so we have entered the era of normal damage. Not that it wasnt everywhere before, but now when it is so obvious it will be clear to those that didnt notice before. v.v

    I've always liked using the Mura for showing that since the Elemental nerf, just because it's so strong for pure yet its elementals are split between 300s.

    Yeah, the elemental Mura's damage really sucks compared to a +15.
