    Why isn't my heater shield stopping 100% of physical damage?

    Are you sure it's physical damage that's getting through? Magic weapons do chip damage through pretty much all shields.

    Like I said, it sounds like chip damage from a magic weapon, but since that isn't it I have no idea.

    They all look the same when upgraded to elemental. Also to boot elemental damage does not have a unique noise/effect like lightning weapons do. It was most likely some sort of magic elemental upgrade of a rapier.

    As Reaper said, it would be either magic, enchanted, divine or occult.

    I can think of 2 possibilities:

    - It's an upgrade path that adds magic damage (magic/ enchanted, divine/ occult)
    - He's doing the up-R1 (kick) attack. Rapiers replace the kick with a back-stepping attack that does a bit of damage through shields.

    Didn't know that attack did damage through shields. That could have been it. I didn't have a recurrence against other weapons I don't think.
