Steam critical table:

Steam is a combinative damage type caused by the interaction of the two elements, fire and water. The damaging effects of steam can occur from specially infused flaring weapons, spells such as Minor Steam (1707), Minor Water (903) when evoked with a minimum of 20 Elemental Lore, Fire ranks, Nature's Fury (635) (when appropriate climate and terrain conditions exist), and from environmental effects.

The damage values (hit points) associated with the critical ranks in this table are AS based taken from the Minor Steam spell.

NOTES:

  • Damage values associated with messaging should be correct even though some of the values seem a bit odd (22, 26, 32 etc.).
  • The rank 4 right/left leg status effects and injuries are different. This is probably an original coding error.
  • There are several typos in the messaging [scaldling (scalding), The (the), leave(s) etc.]
