Acid critical table

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the acid critical table. Damage listed is based on the spells Minor Acid (904) and Major Acid (1710) the spell found in crystal wands. However, these damage values (Hit points) will often be higher with acid flaring weapons and CS based attacks that do acid damage. Although the damage may be different for a specific critical rank, the messaging, status effects, and injury ranks remain the same.
