I found the numbers displayed in the stats can be different completely in raid. Flothaboss used to say that max Blizzard is about 3300 damage, but it can one shot Skull Tower level 3 about 8000 health. It also nearly destroyed Skull tower level 4 so it must be about over 9000 damage (while 3300 damage + 100% weakness = 6600 damage). LOL the stats are wayyyyyy too different…
The value on the item is 10x of actual value, If you have say 4000 health for wolf, the wolf’s health will increase by 400 only in battle. It’s basically 1/10. I use blizzard perks & they are very useful.
For item shields (like fire shields), I guess it is 1/1000. So 2000 fire shield would mean 2% resistance to fire. Assumptions.
Those are old tests but they still stand true. I can oneshot level 3 wolf (Over 8000 HP) with my level 8 blizz + perks (Approx 1800 damage). The values suggest that wolf is 75% weak to ice, but in reality it is 300%. Those are hidden values. I can give some examples with my observations -
Archers are resistant to ice.
Ogre is way more weak to piercing than 50%. Ogre is also weak to fire & poison. (not as much as piercing) Bladestorm is also effective against them.
Gargoyles are weak to normal to a certain extent.
Arblasters are weak to blizzard.
Wolf apart from being much weaker to ice than the normal values, also seems to have piercing weakness rather than resistance. My normal arblasters tend to take them down easily despite they not being high level. Also wolf even struggles against poison.
Monk is weak to fire.
In fact the values even differ for troops dealing same amount of damage.
Now this is one experiment -
1 firebolt, 1 ogre, 1 gargoyle & 2 storm cannons
Now the ogre struck the firebolt in 1 hit. So did a single gargoyle. Both were dealing approx. 1500 blunt. Now the storm cannons dealt 1000 blunt each so I expected the cannons too to bring down in one shot each, but no, they took nearly 2+2=4 shots to bring down the firebolt. This is weird, isn’t it?
A pyromancer is more effective against Firebolts & LTs rather than firestorm.
Snake Towers too are weak to Fire.
Bomb Towers are weak to Ice.
Now out of the blue, LTs are weak to Bladestorm. Note: Monk also dealing normal damage isn’t effective against LTs.
Another thing I have noticed is that LT is the only tower not to have piercing resistance. The rest have 50-75% resistance.
The electricity damage - It is a bit like Fire damage. Troops weak to fire sustain more electric damage. I think.
