    -res wep switch and 8 players monster dmg

    I have two questions this time around.


    1) How is the -resistance property affected by weapon switch? More specifically, for damage over time attacks like poison, will the -resistance affect the monster at the time of the cast or during the actual duration itself?

    To clarify, take this scenario. You have a weapon that reduces enemy poison resistance. Your enemy is not poison immune. You cast a poison attack that deals damage over x seconds, which hits the enemy. Then, while the poison damage is still being dealt (x seconds is not up), you switch weapons. Will the poison damage after the switch still factor in the -resistance of the weapon (which was switched out) or not?


    2) Does the damage of monsters increase with multiple players, and if so, by how much?

    I've read that monster hp and exp goes up to 4.5x with 8 players. However, I could not find information regarding monster damage. Does it go up by 4.5x as well?


    Thanks for the help in advance.

    1. Poison damage goes only by what it was at application.

    2. It increases slightly. I think it was something like 6% per player or something, but I'm not sure. Definitely not 4.5x, though, else you'd see a looooot of deaths in 8 player games.

    Monster damage increases by 1/16 for each additional player IIRC. I'm sure that Orphan, RTB or helvete will take note of this thread soon and provide the exact number :wink3:

    6.25% (or 1/16) is correct :wink3:
