Impact critical table

This table lists the damage values, messaging and status effects caused by impact criticals also commonly referred to as earth or vibration criticals. The damage corresponding to the messaging in the table below is based on the AS based bolt spell Minor Water (903).

Note: Minor water causes impact criticals which are earth based and NOT water based.

Other spells that have impact criticals associated with them include, but are not limited to: Earthen Fury (917), Elemental Blast (409), Meteor Swarm (525), Vibration Chant (1002), Bone Shatter (1106), Hurl Boulder (510) and Dark Catalyst (719). Due to its special properties, weapons constructed from gornar, an earth-aligned metal, can flare causing additional damage to the target in the form of impact criticals.

Although the crit rank, messaging, status effects and injuries from CS based attacks and impact flaring weapons will correspond to the table below, the damage values can and often will be different than those listed in this table.
