How does damage work in RoR?

    I know how this is kind of a silly question, but instead of seeing damage numbers (5 damage, 200 damage, etc.), I have been seeing percents. What does this mean exactly? I made a little chart to hopefully show what I'm thinking it means:

    START: 500 HP
    (+75% dmg) 125 HP
    (+75% dmg) 32 HP
    (+75% dmg) 8 HP
    (+75% dmg) 2 HP
    . . .
    ...But then the enemy will never die.

    (+75% dmg) .5 HP
    (+75% dmg) .125 HP
    (+75% dmg) .3125 HP
    . . .

    Is it that the attack always does, in this case, 75% damage of the remaining health, or the starting health (500) ?

      The % is how much of your base damage your skills do. Characters start out with 12 base damage, and gain 3 per level up. So a skill that does 100% damage will do anywhere between 12~10 damage (deviance between 1~0.8 of maximum damage)

      Hope that helps!

        Ohhh, so if a skill did, let's say, 125% damage, then the damage would range between 12~15?

          Gotcha. :)
          I like it when the game tells me something's about to do 500% damage. That's so much more satisfying than a static number.

            Hm. Good point I guess. :p
