What Are the Damage Types in Path of Exile



Most MMORPGS have their own systems that decide on what occurs when something attacks something else, and Path of Exile is very dependent on one. It's rather similar to newer ARPGs that coming out recently, which have simplified systems on the surface at least. PoE has a complex interior that maintains this game's essence.


There are many different types of damage in PoE, which are the spell damage and the attacking type. These are the main offense methods in the game, each has their own difference and characters which can be used effectively. Being able to know the little things about each one can help you get more from the character and the gameplay.








As characters development and obtain more powerful PoE items, the elemental damage becomes a factor and can treat as a force multiplier that makes a character stronger gradually upon using it. Thinking of physical damage as the base and elemental damage of the supplement that adds to the offense when higher levels are obtained and more powerful PoE Currency items are equipped. When taken into account with critical hit and accuracy, it can lead to effective offense.


The attacking type is divided into two subcategories, which are the elemental and physical damage. The attacking type is the most basic and almost all characters start from it. The most significant elements other than the base damage number with attacking type damage are critical and accuracy strike. It's quite obvious because you don’t want to hit hard enough or not hit at all, which will miss the attacking point at first.


Another advantage to the use of elemental damage is that players can switch between different elements and different enemy types to solve problems. It’s a good idea to use weapons with high attacking speed to match with elemental auras for potential high DPS, as well as the elemental damage skills using like Spectral Throw. The burning, shock, and freezing effects that can go with elemental damage is another good thing too.


As for spell damage, it comes with elemental damage as magic about controlling the forces of nature in PoE. There are some that are spell damage straight up, and they can be affected by other factors and physical damage too. It is all dependent on the items equipped, especially the valuable PoE exalted orb, the playing style, and the character build. Knowing the distinctions between the details can help with achieving full effectiveness in combat with spells.








There are some special gems for spell damage like Shockwave Totem and Ethereal Knives, which can be strengthened with some of the skills on the passive tree. By this point, you can work on the character build down to the little details and maximize spell damage. PoE as a game, there are lots of possibilities here for more build variations and ways to optimize your character for better spell damage.
