    What are the ways (if any) to exceed the 35 (AI) damage cap per hit in PVP melee (swords/mace/fencing), or archery?

    I did some testing with my casting sampire vs. a friend with all 70s.

    Using a 50% fire/poison elemental ornate I would hit him "unstyled" (just swing not using a special) for 19-21 dmg.

    When I corpse skinned and hit him "unstyled", it does around 30 dmg. Not quite AI.

    When I switched to lightning strike I pulled off 35 DMG LS Crit's (expected)

    When I corpse skinned and then lightning striked I also pulled off 35 DMG LS Crits. I believe this is because a Crit, like AI, is registered as direct damage, so the corpse skinning and elemental weapons don't create add'l dmg.

    When I crushing blow'd him only, I did 29-32 dmg. Not quite AI.

    When I corpse skinned and then hit him with Crushing blow I did a whopping 42-47 dmg per hit. I was in danger of 3-shotting him. I believe this is because corpse skinned, the weapon itself is doing 30ish dmg, and then the direct damage of crushing blow is applied on top of that, though CB while corpse skinned seems to be doing more dmg than when not.

    I then tried to corpse skin, omen, and crushing blow him however it never did above the 42-47, though I only tried like 10-12 more times...

    Very interesting.....

    Its too bad I can't chug with my Ornate because this is a very, very nasty axe. Only question is, what should I put in the 5th imbue slot?

    It's currently DI, SSI, HSL, HML. I'm thinking either HLD or Hit Fireball. I wear mace and shield glasses but they don't go off all that often

    If your friend has Corpse Skin cast on him, & you score a critical on ls with an elemental weapon. The damage you produce is not effected by either elemental or corpse skin. A critical from ls is capped at 35 damage for pvp, & the damage is considered direct damage.

    Outside of those factors if a suit has enough of the right resist it can counter balance corpse skin. Alot of serous PvP suits are built to resist Curse, so they would work against corpse skin to.
