Crushing blow question

Which comes first when you hit and CB is triggered, crushing blow -%, or weapon damage?

cb comes before weapon damage. What do you mean by -%? if you're thinking like from a rainbow facet, that is applied to your whole hit.

Because it decreases enemy life by a percent, 1/4 is a percent :)

Thanks for the answer though.

While we're on the topic, is the damage done by CB counted in the 'leach-able' damage?

And how about IM/Thorns, does that return damage dealt by CB?

Nope.

Nope.

Technically, CB is not dmg, it's merely a percentual modification to the amount of remaining life on your victim.

Yup. Though I'm don't think cb gets affected by pdr% like static gets affected by resist. Not sure about that one ;)

If you play Magic: The Gathering it's the difference between damage and loss of life. One you can COP, the other you can't, and PDR is the Circle of Protection - in a way.

It's a direct loss of life that you can only deny by prohibiting actual physical contact, either through defense or blocking. Whereas lightning resistance will decrease or eliminate the effectiveness of Static Field.

But CB is reduced by a positive physical resistance, and that's why it doesn't work on PI.

Sure it isn't leechable? I could swear I've used hunger with high-CB druids and suddenly gotten both globes totally full in 1 bite on monsters w/ enough leech penalty that I was getting very little the bite or two before....

It's a reduction of life, not damage that goes through the leech formula.

This doesn't sound right. I was under the impression that CB doesn't work on PI because you can't damage them and, hence, can't initiate physical harm allowing CB to occur (or is that open wounds?). If this is right is there a well-known monster that is 95% resistant to physical damage that clearly shows CB barely taking off life, i.e. taking more than the usual eight-to-ten swings to kill?

You can try it on on Gloams, they have 90% Physical resist.

OW works as long as you do dmg to a monster, and it can be of any kind (physical/cold/fire/etc).
