Damage Calculation

Quick attacks that were not pulled back fully may deal up to 50% less damage.


Weapon damage types may positively or negatively affect your final damage.


• Any armor you hit subtracts their defense % from the final damage.


• Most weapons have blunt/nonoptimal areas such as the pommel which only deal 20% of the damage.




• By default Aspirants have only 100 HP making them very fragile when unarmored.


• Armor is the main way for Aspirants to negate damage.


• Each piece of armor only defends whatever slot it covers so buy accordingly.


• Each armor piece has a defense up to 100 (percent damage reduction).
