    Thurisaz is part fire and part blunt, star is part magic and part blunt, hugalaz and hailstorm are part cold and part blunt. I believe meteor is blunt.

    Last I tested them, thurisaz/star/meteor were all blunt (not decreased by fire or magic resistance), hugalaz/hailstorm is cold damage (explicitly stated in the announce post where it was changed from blunt to cold; don't remember what type runeblade hugalaz is).

    I've also still never seen evidence of a single attack with multiple damage types.

    RIP Darroth. RIP holy damage type.

    I just tested with thurisaz and you're right. That's odd, because I have a log where I lost my fire resistance enchantment from a thurisaz hit (the old resistance rings). Maybe a bug.

    Edit: Nevermind, forgot the difference between "magic damage" and "damage from a magical source".

    Maybe it used to be fire and was changed to blunt.

    It's blunt.

    Judging by announce, this is probably a bug/oversight.

    Hugalaz runeblade is cold.

    Double type single attacks show up twice on numb, by the way. See: Annwyn wolf tackle attack

    Did you just test it? Ground hugalaz, runeblade hugalaz, or hailstorm?

    What is so amazing about leap, exactly?

    It's like a nerfed evade, which still leaves it very useful. It takes about 1 second of balance, and lets you get past obstructions like walls, blocking, frozen ground, banana peels, etc. (don't remember if it avoids gravehands/piety). It also lets you move more quickly through difficult wilderness terrain (if you can't fly and don't have Landstrider's Boots), though leaping that much will kill your endurance pretty quickly.

    Edit: Apparently I was wrong about frozen ground and banana peels.

    Fairly quick way to get past rubble/walls/etc that you get from the beginning without having to get up to tumble or whatever in Survival (and tumble is a lot slower), or whatever class skill you may be lucky enough to get for the same purpose.
  • MilitisMilitis Posts: 56Member ✭✭ - Stalwart
    Frozen ground, peels, gravehands/piety still have a chance of stopping it. But leaping over someones attempted gank block is mighty fine.

    Leaping also gives you a generic means of entering a room off balance/eq with cloak still up. Might nice perk when scouting during those pesky border raids.

                   Party right, party hard,

                                            Sing and dance, perfect bard.

                                                                     Prefarar loop, accentato whore,

                                                                                             Buy a new rapier, get nerfed some more.

    Why would you want to enter off bal/eq?

    Also if it works like mountjump (which I think it does), it lets you spam while in gravehands/tentacles/piety.
