I get the feeling that these beasties are resistant to fire magic/fiery weapons. I'm gonna try a little water magic against them and see what happens.

Earth damage and others
I think Rockshot Devourers might be slightly less resistant to Earth damage. As L20 Rangers, I'm assuming they have an effective Elemental resistance of 100 armor...Well, that means Elemental damage is approximately halved, right? I was wielding an Ebon scythe, 15^50 and customized (=35% more damage), and a Scythe has a max damage of 41. When using Wild Blow for a Critical hit, I got a return of ~43 damage. 41*1.35*(sqrt(2)) is approximately 78 damage. Half of that would be 39 damage, right? I know it is a rather small discrepancy and I do not remember the exact damage I was getting, only that it was definitely more than 41. But either way I think it means, for whatever reason, they are slightly weak to Earth damage.
Perhaps they actually don't have max Ranger armor, but instead "use Insignias" such as Stormbound, Pyrebound, and Frostbound to reduce other elemental damage? The article states that Air Magic does ~78% damage, which is slightly more than 75%, however I assume they neglect to mention that most Air Magic has inherent 25% AP...if it was a non-AP spell and did 78% damage, then they are weak to Lightning. Else it's normal or they are very slightly weak to Lightning as well. Or as I suspect, they are just a little bit under max Ranger armor anyways. 65 base AL or something.

These things spam traps, when you try to collect your reward, you might want to consider that when 55'ing. I got killed instantly when doing so -_-' 22.214.171.124 18:29, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
