Puncture critical table:

This table lists the critical messaging caused by the puncture damage type. Injuries of this type are most often caused by (AS) based weapon attacks. The damage values (hit points) in this table represent attacks in this category. In addition to weapon attacks, puncture criticals may also be caused by certain spells, i.e., Spike Thorn (616), natural creature attacks, and environmental hazards.

Note: Damage from non-weapon attacks, especially CS attacks, will often be different than those listed in this table.
