Valks Magic or Melee

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know for sure if Valks are melee or magic dmg. Say I use SOJ does that count as Magic dmg or what. I have a feeling we have a mix of both but i'm not sure. Would we benefit more to a magic damage buff or melee? Do I use a magic ap enhancer or a melee ap enhancer? And then there are the dmg reductions on armor. All in all, what category to Valks fall into?

Would also like to know. I put a +2 melee AP gem in my gloves and started thinking about this the other day..

doesn't matter, AP is for all your 'attack power'

Given that one of the SoJ awakenings is melee AP I'd assume we're doing melee damage. However, stranger things have been shown to be true in BDO.

@Rektangles OP is talking abt specific AP here, this is for the +2 Melee/Magic/Range AP crystals. Not just AP. We know AP is all AP, but there are other types of AP or Damage Reduction. 

@Jeynar i was thinking th same thing when i was trying out the crystals for the gloves, but after dueling bunch of warriors and zerkers, i feel that 10% grapple resist is better, so i use the grapple resist instead. Probably visit it again later.

@Waveheart i think you got to test it yourself. I was going to test this, but couldnt find the time for it. Too many things to do in this game right now. I think the type of damage has to go with skill, not class. For example, soj is melee damage, shield throw is range damage, and cs is magic/range.
