The Creatures section is currently under construction and this process will take some time to complete. The work is being done by volunteers with limited time, so please bear with us while we add the data. If you can provide any information that is currently missing, please post in the thread to let us know.

While this construction period is ongoing, you will be able to access the old Bestiary section which is archived in a sub-forum of the Creatures section. Each mob thread in Creatures contains a link to the relevant Bestiary thread and to the Entropedia page, so if you are looking for information that isn't yet available in the Creatures thread, please use the links provided at the bottom of the first post in the thread.

Thank you for your patience.

All these years assuming wiki was right with the cut/stab/imp and I just realised they got it wrong.

Was hunting in improved pilot with adj resto and things seemed to be going better than expected. Swapped to ghoul and something really didn't look right. Put my paradox on and it was clear wiki had something very wrong. After checking with a 6b plate I confirmed they don't do any impact damage.

Didn't do a proper test but after a few more armour/plate swaps I estimate damage to be:

55% cut
43% stab
2% acid

Yep, a silly small amount of acid. The cut/stab could be a bit off, but it's close enough to work with for the moment.

Interesting. This was on regular Araneatrox, not Mayhem ones, right?

Yes, this was the normal spiders. The mayhem ones do impact/cut/cold.

I did some more tests to check Slither's findings, and they don't agree.

Using Adj Harrier+6a against a Young, there was no decay on the 6a, therefore no Burn or Penetration. I remembered at this point that Adj Harrier can't be put in the TT so was a very bad choice of armour to use :D

With Guardian+6b, the 6b decayed 0.294, whish is 5 absorbed, therefore we have Impact but no Electric. Guardian decayed 0.474, which is 7.5 absorbed, which must come from Impact, Cut & Stab.

Both of those tests against an Old Alpha gave the same result.

Using Guardian+5d against a Young, 5d decayed 0.260 which is the minimum decay so it wasn't possible to determine the exact damage absorbed, but it must have been less than 4.5, and 5d has combined Cut and Stab of 4.0 (0 Impact), so it seemed safe to rule out Cold and Acid.

To double-check I tried with unplated Gremlin, which decayed 3.164, meaning 35 absorbed, which is consistent with full Impact, Cut and Stab protection, therefore no Cold or Acid.

I'd lost the Old Alpha by now but I tested with Gremlin on a Stalker and got the same result.

So Impact / Cut / Stab are the correct damage types.

Having chatted with Slither we think the error he made might be to do with the "new" (not really new any more) way in which plates and armour combine, and may well prove that if an armour protects all of one damage type, then the plates are not used and do not decay. While it messed up the tests he meant to do, he may have accidentally tested something completely different and very useful indeed :)

Similarly this may also suggest that the Impact proportion is relatively low, but neither of us have yet done any further tests to check that.

I think I just made a stupid mistake here :) Probably put 6a on instead of 6b and claimed they do no impact damage, then when testing wth pulsar plates I assumed the damage take was acid instead of the impact.

I seem to get better returns at Takuta even though it's a land area. Most people claim land areas will reduce their return but it's better for me than free areas and I'm halfway through mission 4.

Strange, I have been there the last few days and was just thinking the opposite last night :laugh:

The spiders on Takuta are not "Young to Stalker", it is mostly young to old, with the occasional provider and rare guardian.

These are mixed with a bunch of other mobs, right? Atrox, Armax and Primordial Longu iirc.

I found a few this morning around where Jimmy was. They didn't hit too hard on angel, but the random stalkers hanging about sure did. :)
