I read "in an apparent bug, the higher the defender's life protection, the more likely it is to be drained". No version-info, so probably an old, no longer accurate info. Or is 0.12 still infested by this bug? What do others think about it? -- Bwijn 15:06, 3 July 2013 (CEST)

Now this, I like. Nicely done Tower. --MoogleDan (talk) 19:35, 22 July 2014 (CEST)

+1 Agree completely to Dan's congrats. -- Bwijn (talk) 00:11, 24 July 2014 (CEST)
I gave the page a once over, arranging the flavours more thematically (all the physical together, all the fire together, all the cold & water, etc. etc.). I think this is a little more sensible than separating elemental + effect from pure elemental, but if you disagree, I can reset it easily enough. I do have a few questions though about possible inaccuracies:
  • Firebrand - Does this flavour not burn scrolls? I realize item destruction will be going away in a version, but it's a weird thing not to mention after including it in all the other fire damage sources. If the actual attack doesn't deal fire, though, I suppose it wouldn't...
  • Disease - Komodos no longer have sickening bites, do they? Does anything else, or is this an obsolete flavour?
  • Drain XP - Is this still the actual name of this flavour? It hasn't "drained XP" for a while now.

Firebrand attacks also do regular fire damage (with the same formula as regular fire damage (sorry for forgetting to mention it), komodos did not lose the disease brand in 0.14 (and yes, the flavour is removed in 0.15, as the page has), and in-source "drain xp" is still the referred-to name for the attack flavour. Ambivalent about the page re-sort. --Tower (talk) 19:39, 24 July 2014 (CEST)
