    Bash +damage how is it calculated?

    Ok trying to figure out how the +damage is calculated.

    Via the LCS:

    Put on a 3-10 sword(with zero in mastery and get:

    18-37 Bash, 4-16 Normal

    Put on a 3-10 Mace(with 1 in mastery and get)

    19-40 Bash, 5-18 Normal

    Showing the additional Mastery bonus as I see.

    But is the +damage calculated like normal +damage on weapons and not shown on the LCS and thus multiplied further by the ED% on Bash and Weapon Mastery or is it a static numerical bonus.

    Re: Bash +damage how is it calculated?

    From the Amazon Basin wiki:
    Character screen displays + Damage as being applied after +% Damage, but it is only applied after damage has been applied to the target. Consequently it does not increase damage but is still taken into account when calculating life returned by % Life Stolen per hit and Life Tap, and mana returned by % Mana Stolen per hit: this means life and mana can be returned even when attacking an Immune to Physical target (provided Life Tap is cast or the target has >0% drain effectiveness). [1]
    Not what I was expecting either :P

    Further clarification from Onderduiker:
    Bash + Damage never gets applied to its physical damage; it adds nothing, whether your target has Damage Resist 0% or is Immune to Physical. It only gets applied when leech is calculated, after physical damage has been applied.

    The application order when calculating physical damage is as follows:

    • Base damage (ethereal bonus)
    • Weapon damage (weapon's +% Enhanced Damage, followed by + to Min/Maximum Damage)
    • Total damage (off-weapon +% ED e.g. Bash and its Stun synergy)
    • Final damage (Critical or Deadly Strike)
    • Resistance (DR %)
      Damage has now been applied to target
    • Bash + Damage
    • Leech (drain effectiveness and difficulty penalty are multiplicative)

    Based on the (lying) character screen, Bash + Damage is meant to be added after off-weapon +% ED... but it's not. Even if it were, at that stage in the process it wouldn't make a significant contribution to damage unless you were bare-handed or equipping a low damage weapon.

    Well, that sucks to sum that up. Thanks Hubb.
