Damage Types in Lords of the Fallen (LotF) is an important mechanic pertaining to Combat. There are four main Damage Types in The Lords of the Fallen: Physical, Fire, Holy, and Wither. Damage dealt by each Damage Type is affected by many factors, including your equipment, stats,  skills and temporary buffs, as well as any resistances or weaknesses players and enemies alike may have. Players and enemies can also inflict abnormal status effects which can deal or modify each of the game's four Damage Types. 

If player has visible damage numbers, can guess how enemy reacts to said damage type:

  • Red means enemy is weak to said damage, therefore receives extra damage. Note, that scale of weakness is different for each enemy.
  • White means enemy is Neutral to said damage, therefore has neither extra nor reduced damage.
  • Grey means enemy is resistant to said damage, therefore receives reduced damage. Note, that scale of resistance is different for each enemy.

Other useful information regarding engagement with enemies:

  • See Status Effects for all status buildups and other effects applied to your character.
  • See Spells for a list of magic that can be casted to deal, increase resistance to, and buff your damage with each elemental Damage Type.
  • See Runes for a list of runes that can be equipped to augment you resistance and damage dealt with each Damage Type.
