Magical Ranged tested[edit source]

Ok, I have a few conclusions about Magical ranged, after having experienced combat with Waterfiends:

  1. Protect from Magic negates their Magic attack, but not their Magical ranged attack.
  2. Protect from Ranegd negaates their Magical ranged attack.
  3. Ranged defence has no effect, only Magic defence.

I could be wrong, but hey, I am human. A magic scroll.png Wejer Feather.png 11:36, 14 February 2009 (UTC)


Other Monsters[edit source]

Revenants freeze ou with their ranged attack (looks like a dart rather then the magic attack's skull), is that a Magical Ranged attack? Steam Punker 06:17, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

I don't have any proof that they are or aren't, but the fact that they can use all corners of the combat triangle would suggest that a magical ranged attack would be redundant. What I do know that protect from range causes them to stop using it, but I haven't tested damage effects with high-magic defence armor.

I'm sure its normal ranged. When I revenant hunt, I wear full melee armour (verac's helm and skirt, torag's body, dragonfire shield if not using a godsword, my magic defence is below +20 ish); I get decimated by the dark beast and higher's magic attack. However, if I use protect from/deflect magic then I can tank them fairly easily - if it were magical ranged then surely I would be decimated by that too, like their normal magic attack. Therefore I believe its normal ranged, so based on the sizeable ranged defence of the armour. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 14:03, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

What leech curse?[edit source]

Okay, when soloing graardor I was wondering what leech curse would help against a magical ranged attack. Could anyone help me out? 88.159.216.101 10:28, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Leech Magic will raise your magic defence, which will help against the magical ranged attack, and the magic attack of the minion. Leech Defence will also do this, to a lesser extent - though worth using due to the large defence drain to Graardor. However, I'd pick Turmoil over those due to the very large boost to melee combat for a reasonable drain rate. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:57, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Damage absorbtion[edit source]

What type of damage absorbtion absorbs magical ranged attacks? Ranged or magic?
