    Head path:
    0 break LL, 2.5 Break RL, 5.0 CalH break H, 7.5 Aval, 9.34 they die.
    Their possible applies:
    0 salve leg, 4 salve leg, 8 salve head, 9.34 die
    0 salve leg, 4 mend, 5 salve head, 9 cured calcify, survive.
    0 salve leg, 4 preapply head, 8 cured calcify, survive.

    Torso path:
    0 break LL, 2.5 CalT break RL, 5.0 break T1, 7.0 Cal complete T2, 7.5 calcify squeeze.
    Their possible applies:
    0 salve leg, 4 salve leg, 7.5 die
    0 salve leg, 4 mend, 5 salve leg, 7.5 die.
    0 salve leg, 4 preapply torso, 7.5 die

    Torso path is hence stronger.

    Got a log for you:

    You guys are just doing it wrong if simply applying mending first is stopping you. Literally all you have to do is wait a fraction of a second to make sure their leg apply wasn't mending, and then do the calcify head/head break. If they're only curing affs they actually have and not holding applies, you should reliably get them every time (barring tumble into nairat, and other prone defense).

    If they preapply head, you definitely don't head break, but they also aren't getting anywhere so you can get free torso prep.

    Took a bounty on @Krysanth, messed up my farsee and chasing, but luckily @Krysanth stayed back to fight, totally unexpected, and hence the fun:

    With style, I was killed by her from the ground, right after I killed her, a balance apart!

    I ran away to PREVAIL, so we could fight like Lord and Lady, she waited!

    We went again, full log:

    Shoutout to @Krysanth for being super fun and engaging. Really hope all bounties or contracts would end up that beautiful and spicy.

    I just realized I wasn't parrying against your EL yesterday, @Dochitha fml. I was still stuck on my random arm switch parry mode from fighting Seragorn earlier instead of randoming legs.

    Just a quick question. We've pretty much established that aside from con increasing health and int increasing mana, none of the stats change anything else for elemental lords, right?
