Damage Type in Elden Ring is an important mechanic pertaining to Combat. Damage is divided into two major groups: Physical and Elemental. Damage Type is affected by many factors, including your equipment, skills and temporary buffs. Players and enemies can also inflict abnormal status effects which can deal or modify damage. See the Status Effects page for details on abnormal statuses that can be inflicted on players and enemies alike.
Note that several things are taken into account when calculating damage dealt:
- Target's Weakness/Resistance/Immunity to a specific damage type (more info on individual pages for each damage type);
- Type of Attack (Weak/Strong/Critical Strike/Weapon Skill);
- Hitting Weakspots
