Damage types

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Weapons, skills and items in Lotro can inflict damage of many different types. With the introduction of the Lore-master skill Knowledge of the Lore-master it is possible to see which type of damage is most effective against certain creature types. Weapons with certain damage types will exhibit a Weapon Aura, which can be made invisible by unchecking "Enable Weapon Passive Effects" in UI Settings.

For the definitions of specific damage types see: Game Terms or the individual damage type pages linked to below.
