When using the MonkJob Ability "Formless Strikes", the damage type of melee strikes and kick attacks is nonphysical, nonelemental. This damage will not be subject to any of the damage-type specific bonuses or penalties below.
Despite having an uncharacteristic damage type when meleeing, these exceptions still use normal damage types during weapon skills. For example, when performing a weapon skill with Vampiric Claws or while using Formless Strikes and any Hand-to-Hand weapon, the damage type is Blunt.
Where not otherwised specified, the damage modifier is understood to be 1.0
Reduced modifiers for undead monsters (marked above with *) will be raised to 1.0 for a short time if the monster takes damage from a Banish spell.
The Warrior job ability Tomahawk raises reduced modifiers for any monster it is used on for 30 seconds (and +15 seconds per additional merit, up to 1:30). It is currently unknown if it raises the reduced modifiers to 1.0, or if there is less of an effect.
