Once again the vague wiki leaves me lost and confused.
So in trying to understand DR, and the colored floaty damage above enemies.
I consult the wiki and the section on monster info. I'll use Arraetrikos as an example:
wiki says he's an lawful evil; evil outsider, with DR Silver + good.
So, I would imagine a weapon such as a "Silver holy burst of pure good" would put him to rest pretty easily. But while beating on him the other day, I didn't see any purple numbers. Of course, its easy to miss them in such a battle. But I have crafted weapons that seem to match everything the wiki says will beat the **** out of a monster but still see mostly orange damage, some yellow, and hardly ever purple.
Also when getting ready to fight Harry the other day, someone gave me a metalline weapon to fight him with. Whats so special about metalline?
So in the last column on the wiki in monster info that says DR, is that telling me what will beat the mosters DR?
If it says DR/- does that mean that nothing can beat its DR?
When it says DR "Silver + good" and "Silver or good" what exactly is the difference?
I think thats all my questions for now. Thanks to everyone who has been so extraordinarily helpful thus far on the forums, and to any and all that take the time to set me straight on this!
