Deadly Strike

Deadly Strike % gives a chance of dealing Double Damage. The damage is doubled after all other bonuses, including Str or Dex modifying weapon damage. Only physical damage is multiplied. There is no penalty for ranged attacks.

Assassins, Barbarians and Amazons have a similar skill bonus called Critical Strike. While Critical Strike % also doubles physical damage, it doesn't stack with Deadly Strike. The game rolls for x2 damage for one, then the other if it fails. So having both properties increases double damage chances, but never allows 4x damage.

Crushing Blow

  • reduces the remaining HP by 25% (1/4th). Similar to Static Field, but with the difference its effect is physical. Note it's reducing the "remaining HP" so it would never actually kill a monster, but will still drain its HP very fast, no matter how much HP the monster has.
  • Capped at 100% chance for Crushing Blow. Anything above 100% is discarded.
  • Physical resistance (ie Damage Reduced by %) does apply to Crushing Blow damage, but only if the resistance is positive.
  • Since 1.10 (note that Eastern Sun mod is based on LoD 1.10) Crushing Blow is calculated before your normal damage. So, before doing the damage that you would normally do, there is a chance you will reduce the health of the monster by X% then normal damage apply to the resulting lower life. If you have more than one item with Crushing Blow, the probabilities will be added together. There will be one random check for a Crushing Blow. There is no check for each separate item, so one can not get multiple Crushing Blows in one attack.
  • Default: 1/4th
  • vs. Players: 1/10th
  • vs. Hirelings: 1/10th
  • vs. Champions, Uniques, Bosses: 1/8th
  • with missile weapons, default: 1/8th
  • with missile weapons, vs. Players: 1/20th
  • with missile weapons, vs Hirelings: 1/20th
  • with missile weapons, vs Champions, Uniques, Bosses: 1/16th
  • penalty for additional players - the amount of HP reduced will remain the same, no matter how many players are in this game (and with what % is increased monster's life).
    eg: lets say a monster with 1000 HP loose 250 hp due to CB. If there were 8 players in this game same monster would have 5500 HP (1000hp +450%) but it will still loose 250 hp when CB procs.
  • penalty in NM and Hell - both Crushing Blow and Static Field have no effect on monsters, champions or bosses with HP under 20% in NM and 35% in Hell. Fixed for players at 35% at all times.

Open Wounds

  • Makes monsters hit with a weapon with this mod slowly loose health (bleed uncontrollably).
  • Formula:
    Clvl=1-15: 25*(9*Clvl+31)/256
    Clvl=16-30: 25*(18*Clvl-104)/256
    Clvl=31-45: 25*(27*Clvl-374)/256
    Clvl=46-60: 25*(36*Clvl-779)/256
    Clvl=61-99: 25*(45*Clvl-1319)/256

Some examples:
Clvl 10: 11.8 per sec over 8 seconds for a total of 94.5 damage.
Clvl 30: 42.6 per sec over 8 seconds for a total of 340.6 damage.
Clvl 50: 99.7 per sec over 8 seconds for a total of 797.7 damage.
Clvl 70: 178.8 per sec over 8 seconds for a total of 1430.5 damage.
Clvl 90: 266.7 per sec over 8 seconds for a total of 2133.6 damage.

Also, the damage is divided by 4 for a player target. In addition, for a missile versus a player target one should divide the damage by 8 instead.

Finally, versus bosses and champions the damage is divided by 2.

It is possible to get up to 100% chance for Open Wounds. Anything above 100% is discarded.
