Dark damage

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Dark damage is a damage type inflicted by all wands and staves linked to the Blood Magic and Soul Reaping attributes, as well as all crafted, collector, unique, and PvP wands and staves linked to the Communing and Restoration Magic attributes, some Curses wands and staves, and several unique Death Magic wands and staves, Anniversary Scythe "Sufferer" and Decade Staff "Underworld Pillar".

Only one dervish form can change a weapon's damage type to dark. There's currently no skill that inflicts direct dark damage.


  • Unlike shadow damage, dark damage is not armor-ignoring; it is non-physical, non-elemental damage which uses the normal damage calculations.
