  • Damage done can exceed the HP absorbed (if your HP bar isn't empty enough), but won't be indicated in the chat log.
  • The potency is directly associated with dark magic skill:
    • At 300 dark magic skill or below, the maximum potential potency is (Dark Magic Skill + 20)
    • At 300 dark magic skill or above, the maximum potential potency is (Dark Magic Skill)×5/8 + 132.5
  • The minimum potency is 50% of the maximum potency, and the actual potency of the spell (when unresisted) will randomly fall anywhere between the minimum and maximum possible potency.
