I play Diablo 2 paladin and I am hell 72. For some months now I cannot understand which one does worst damage. Physical or elemental. I don't mean to a specific monster. I refer to routine battles. If u have 2 weapons: 1) Damage 20 2) Damage 10 - fire damage 10 (=20 in total?) - exception for immune to fire. Which one kills faster? I have 2 such weapons and i have difficulty understanding the difference even during battle. If u strike with damage 10 and fire damage 10 is the result the same?
