    If I have a weap with 50% Hit lightening and 50% hit fire area,, How can I tell IF/WHEN the hit area effect is applied? Obviously I can see when hit lightening is triggered, but how do I know whn hit fire area is triggered?
  2. There is both a graphic and a sound when hit area goes off. At least, there is in the normal client, I don't know if there is in the other one.

    You see damage numbers floating above nearby monsters.

    well, evidently I am a complete noob, cuz I can't see/hear anything. I made 2 bokutoes , one plain, one I imbued with hit fire area 44% and spent half hour using both and can not see anything to indicate if/when hit area effect is triggering??? Both appeared to me to hit exactly the same??? I'm using the 2d client? The one with hit fireball I can see easy enuff, but not the hit area.

    It doesn't hit the actual monster you're striking.

    From left to right, Fire, Energy, Poison.

    Sound for Fire is the same as Orc Bombers bombs, Energy sounds like Executioners reflect damage, Poison sounds the same as the Poison spell. I didn't have a weapon handy for Phys & Cold but I expect they're the same.
