Prismatic Damage

From TheKolWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Prismatic damage is a special case of elemental damage added to a weapon. An item (typically a weapon) will do prismatic elemental damage if it has an enchantment to add damage of all five elemental types. This designation does not extend to items that provide protection against all elements, only damage. "Chromatic" is sometimes used as well; a December 10, 2007 trivial update gave the grouping as "prismatic", hence its use here.

The update in question verified that prismatic items should pulverize into elemental things like wads, nuggets, and powder. Being of all elements, any is possible. However, pulverizing a prismatic item does not yield a prismatic wad.
