Non-corporeal critical table:

Since non-corporeal creatures do not have bodies, attacks against them, ordinarily, will not cause injuries. They will, however, lose health equal to the critical damage that corresponds to the critical rank/body location and damage type.

There are no damage values included in this table since these vary depending upon the damage type, i.e., slash, puncture, crush, fire, acid, lightning etc. The non-corporeal critical messaging will be the same for all damage types.

E.g. The Rank 4 acid head critical vs a wraith will have the same messaging as a Rank 4 puncture head critical vs a phantom, but the amount of damage will be different. The message for both attacks will be 'SWIFT STRIKE WOULD HAVE HIT MORE THAN AN EAR, IF ONLY IT WERE THERE'.The acid critical will do 20 damage from a Minor Acid (904) attack while the puncture critical will do 15 damage from a melee weapon attack.

Note: Status effects such as knockdowns are associated with the attacker's damage type.
