Strike Damage is a type of Physical Damage that is often associated with blunt weapons such as Hammers and Maces. Weapons that primarily deal the other damage types can also possess attacks that deal Strike Damage within their movesets. Strike damage is often (but not always) effective against heavily armored enemies as well as creatures made of rock or have a similar sturdy composition.

        Please add TORCHES to the list! The Steel-Wite Torch does strike damage, plus it sets things on fire with one hit, and has a cool Firebreather ability for cheap FP!

        • I've found strike damage with a morningstar to be useful against the rocky looking enemies in the caves, when my slash weapon isn't working well against them.

            Might be smart to separate this list by weapon categories. I doubt anyone came to this page looking for a staff or seal to do their strike damage with

              Probably the best damage type in the game. Only a small handful of enemies are resistant to it but it really shines because a lot of the really difficult enemies in the game are weak to this such as heavily armored knights.

                Has anyone encountered anything resistant to strike damage yet? Strike weapons seem like the safest bet for a catch-all weapon right now.
