Merciless Reaper Notes

  • This gift also applies it's effect to weapon projectiles, like bayonet shots. 
  • Only affects the first hit of multi-hit combos or skill type gifts.
  • The damage increase will be consumed even if the attack does not hit an enemy.
  • Has no effect on light/dark type direct damage gifts and will not be consumed when casting them.
  • Provides no benefit against enemies with 0% physical resistance.
  • Negative physical resistance will be quadrupled ( -10% will become -40%)
  • Positive physical resistance will be reduced to a quarter (40% will become 10%)
  • The physical defense reduction applies to Drain Attacks, including charged ones. The buff will not be consumed (unless performing a launching drain attack). This gives parries and backstabs higher damage if performed on the correct enemy, as long as the buff mantains active.

      For a dark mage build, is it better to use Dark Shout, or Merciless Reaper? The cost is the same, Shout will always increase damage, while Reaper only with enemies with high defenses, but at the same time, Reaper works for more than one spell, increases gain from Chaotic Ash, and in case of enemies with very high defenses (Virgin Born) it may yield better results . I wouldn't want to equip both of them so, which one?
