Damages have different types. Different kinds of damages also contributed to different battles styles. Varying on the type of damage, the tide of battle may be heavily affected, especially with one-on-one quarter combat. Damage Types are usually followed up with Damage Attributes, the nature or element of the damage.
If the type of damage is nullified by the target, the Damage Attribute contributes minimally in the damage. The most they may deal is about 10% of how the Damage Type would.
