Crits

The three kinds of damage inflicted by 710 use three types of criticals. "Brilliant flashes of lightning surround [target]" or "Brilliant flashes of lightning surround you!" = lightning damage. "Large hailstones pound relentlessly on [target]" or "Large hailstones whip through the area!" = crush damage.

"Violent winds tighten around [target]." or "Violent winds rip through the area!" and then "[Target] is struck by flying debris!" I'm not sure what to call it:

  ... 30 points of damage!
  Hard strike to right leg breaking tendons and bone!
  ... 50 points of damage!
  Left leg collapses as the bones turn to dust!
  ... 50 points of damage!
  Impact removes the left hand in a spray of red mist!
  ... 70 points of damage!
  Strike to chest causes a large gaping hole!
  ... 25 points of damage!
  Strong shot to head messes up brain fatally.

From searching around, it appears that these are same crits as used with russet Major Elemental Wave, Bone Shatter, Vibration Chant, and sonic flares. Are these vibration crits? Sonic crits? Earth crits?

If I were to guess, I'd say impact criticals. Compare to 903? Oliver Talk 14:36, 25 May 2007 (EDT)
