    Default Druid: flame blade = broken

    the primary damage of flame blades is still typed as physical with just fire/magic as the DR breaking type. On korthos against frosty zombies you get purple numbers from the flaming portion and yellow numbers from the main damage as it is not typed slashing so it won't break their DR

    I havent tested it, but I've heard people talk about this.

    Btw, Is the flame blade animation on animal form still show up as a humanoid form?

    Flame blade also does not split oozes. My brother started a Druid and loves the way it works. /shrug

    No, it is hidden now.

    But I have seen some bears with some mighty big shields.

    doesn't the spell state in the description specifically say that it does fire damage rather than slashing?

    Summons a scimitar of fire that does fire damage, instead of slashing damage, and uses the wielder's Wisdom instead of Strength for determining attack and damage bonuses.

    yes, and it is NOT doing fire damage. it is doing PHYSICAL damage with a DR(not resistance) bypass property of fire, which nothing has so its meaningless. It is just doing physical damage with no slash/pierce/bludg bypass type.

    if I hit a frozen zombie/ice mephit/frost giant that takes extra fire damage it should do purple numbers, because it is supposed to do just pure fire damage, it doesn't

    if I hit a fire elemental/fire mephit/etc that is immune to fire, I should get *immune* that is not happening either
