How are damage types determined (physical/elemental/etc)?

Recommended Posts

Dabbling with Arcane archer and using an elemental quiver.  I matched the same element to the bow for penetration.  I then notice that the bow itself states it does Piercing Damage.

I cannot find much that tells what abilities, effects and some weapons damage type are.

For other classes it's the main hand that determines the weapon damage type outside of special exceptions like Divine Light.

What about a Weapon such as an Axe which has an elemental penetration?  If equipped as a main hand, will it perform Slashing damage or Elemental damage?

It should be slashing damage. The only benefit you'd get from elemental penetration would be if you had an elemental quiver or had some other type of magic damage spells.

No, it shouldn't now, though it use to more than a year ago when melee weapons were stat sticks for rangers. You can test and look at details when in melee vs ranged tray, and check your penetration ratings for the different damage types.
