Guild Wars: State of the Game @ Official Site

by Inauro, 2006-08-14 23:10:00
The latest State of the Game article at the official Guild Wars site takes a closer look at damage calculation in ArenaNet's free-to-play MMORPG.
When you attack a player with a weapon or skill, it means you deal damage. A successful attack displays yellow numbers above your target's head, showing how much Health loss you inflicted. Many variables influence this damage. The game calculates damage type, location on the target's body, armor level (AL), and any other modifiers like Enchantment buffs or Hexes. Once the game has crunched the numbers it determines how much damage you do. By remembering the basic damage types and how to resist them, players can hone their playing ability and select proper targets and skills when entering into a battle.
