    Hey hey!

    Could I ask for someone else to help me confirm the majority damage type of the Oratan crossbow energy bolts?

    I'm fairly certain it is burn, but I really don't know how to go about confirming damage types. :shrug:


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Burn and Penetration I was told by Celia from Blackangels(I think that was the society at least..)


    She were hunting them in the desert with Salamander armor set at least :)

    it seems they only do little penetration damage if at all. I tested them with polaris (50ish pene 0burn) and with gremlin 12 burn 0pene. They seem to be easier in gremlin. Both tests where with the obvious choice of 6a plate.

    Doh!!! 50 burn protection. :dribble:


    OK, I was using Rascal (also 12 burn 0 pene) with 6A's, and to be honest the bigger maturity Oratan... hurt. :surrender:

    Thanks for the confirmation, at least I now know other have had similar results with armor setups. :cool:

    First thing to do is see if you can find any armours and plates that don't decay to rule out damage types. Once you have it narrowed down to a few types you need to do decay tests to find out how much damage a particular armour absorbs. This is best done with unplated armour. You need to understand the decay formula and how absorption works.

    A lot of it is trial and error and it's difficult to explan the whole process properly but you can see examples on PCF of the work we've done on Calypso mobs. If you check the Calypsocod, Leviathan, Igni and Diripi threads on the Bestiary there are some explanations there. There are others but I mention those ones because I remember that we put quite detailed explanations of our tests on the threads there.

    Chrome if you want to PM me in game later I'll gladly try to talk you through some of it. It would be good to get some proper tests on Arkadia mobs going.
