Spell Damage Explained

Without any items or effects, the damage done by a spell depends only on that spell's base range and your buffed Mysticality. Each spell adds a percentage of your Mysticality to the damage it deals, but for most spells there is a limit on how much.

Bonus Absolute Spell Damage

Some items or effects add a set amount of bonus damage to spells. Sometimes this is a generic bonus, but other times it will apply only to spells of a certain element. Note that elemental forms (Coldform, Hotform, Sleazeform, Spookyform, and Stenchform) do not truly change the element of a spell for this purpose, only the damage dealt by it.

Damage Cap

Most spells have a cap on how much damage it can deal. If this cap is surpassed from a combination of Mysticality bonuses and absolute Bonus Spell Damage (generic and elemental), no surplus damage is dealt.

Spell Critical Hit

If a spell triggers a critical hit, its base damage and Mysticality damage bonus is doubled, and the damage cap is doubled as well. It does not double absolute Bonus Spell Damage.

Bonus Percentage Spell Damage

Some items and effects grant a percentage boost to spell damage. This is applied after any cap on spell damage has been applied.

Group Monster Multipliers

Certain monsters in the kingdom are considered group monsters, which causes some spells to deal multiplied damage against those monsters. Spells have a limit on how many monsters in a group it can hit. In other words, it has a maximum group monster multiplier. This behavior applies to non-spell combat skills as well.

Examples

A Sauceror and Pastamancer with the following equipment and stats:

They both have a total of +20 generic spell damage, +20 Cold spell damage and +150% spell damage.

Casting cold Cannelloni Cannon, Saucecicle and a critical cold Stuffed Mortar Shell respectively, so that the elemental bonus damage applies:

 Cannelloni Cannon Damage
 = 2.5 × cap50([16 to 32] + (0.25 × 160) + 20 + 20)
 = 2.5 × cap50([16 to 32] + 40 + 40)
 = 2.5 × 50
 = 125
 Saucecicle Damage
 = 2.5 × cap150([45 to 50] + (0.3 × 160) + 20 + 20)
 = 2.5 × cap150([45 to 50] + 48 + 40)
 = 2.5 × [133 to 138]
 = 332 to 345 (332, 335, 338, 340, 343, 345)
 (Critical) Stuffed Mortar Shell Damage
 = 2.5 × (2 × ([32 to 64] + (0.5 × 160)) + 20 + 20)
 = 2.5 × (2 × ([32 to 64] + 80) + 40)
 = 2.5 × (2 × ([112 to 144]) + 40)
 = 2.5 × ([224 to 288] + 40)
 = 2.5 × [264 to 328]
 = 660 to 820 (660, 663, 665, ... , 815, 818, 820)

History

  • In addition to changes to many spell damage formulas, the way spell damage was calculated was changed after the Pastamancer/Sauceror revamp on 2013, the main difference being that spells had two different caps on Mysticality bonuses and absolute Bonus Spell Damage boosters (elemental Spell Damage bonuses were capped for Sauceror spells only, and Pastamancer had higher caps for pasta spells) instead of a hard damage cap. The old damage formula can be summed up as this:
Sauce Damage = ceil(Multiplier × ( (Base + floor(Myst Bonus)) × Crit + Cap[Generic Bonus + Elemental Bonus] ))
Pasta Damage = ceil(Multiplier × ( (Base + floor(Myst Bonus)) × Crit + Cap[Generic Bonus] + Elemental Bonus ))
