Adventure Quest Harm and Void Elements Guide



Adventure Quest Harm and Void Elements Guide by Mystical Warrior

Background Void is essentially damage that comes from rewriting reality or manipulating the stuff of creation/the Void (reducing things to the primal Void and rebuilding them from that infinite sea of possibility into what you desire or just reducing things to that primal void and letting reality reassert itself (which will put things back together just in a certain amount of agony) or dropping raw Void energy onto your opponent and watching as reality melts), its all elements and none at all, everything and nothing, the absence and potential of all things, the moments between time, etc, raw mana is of this element.

 Harm is essentially damage without elemental alignment perhaps its a left over from the earliest times of creation when not everything was infused with elemental power, perhaps its from an alien world that obeys different rules, perhaps its meddling with truly advanced magic/science/magiscience. ~Chii


Introduction The introduction of the Harm and Void elements serves to distinguish clearly between damage that is meant to be non-elemental and damage that comes from the Void. Currently, players and most monsters have Harm and Void percent modifiers set to 100%. There is no equipment that changes their modifiers as of now. However, the Void damage multiplier will eventually be changed to 200%.

 


FAQ
What happened to Element X? 
Element X has essentially been replaced with Harm, as it was a term that referred to any damage that did not align with any of the basic 8 elements. To quote Zephyros: “Element X is a myth.” Do Harm and Void have their own symbols? 
Yes. The Harm element is marked with a purple cross and the Void element is marked with a big ?. Are Harm and/or Void attacks blockable? 
Yes, they are. However, there are different amounts of BtH that can be assigned to the damage. Is there only one attack type for Harm and/or Void? 
No. Like all other elements, Harm and Void can be in the form of a melee, ranged, or magic attack. An additional note would be poison damage, as it is of the Harm element and has no attack type. How do I know if an equipment can deal Harm or Void damage? 
The AQ Encyclopedia is a very good source for this type of info. In a particular entry, it almost always states the trigger that allows your equipment to deal Harm or Void damage. The most common trigger is probably “Dragon”. You can also find a list of equipment that deals Harm and/or Void damage in this guide below. Can element seeking weapons deal Harm or Void damage? 
It depends. If the weapon element is “Element Seeking,” then no, as that means it can only seek one of the 8 basic elements, not Harm or Void. However, weapons with “Greater Element Seeking” or “Lesser Element Seeking” can actually deal Harm and/or Void damage depending on the circumstances. My weapon is dealing its normal damage against a Dragon/Dragonkind. Why? 
Some old trigger weapons used to trigger based on name, though most trigger weapons have a type-based trigger. If there is a problem, it’s either because you have one of the aforementioned name-trigger weapons, or because it’s a bug. If it is a bug, you can report it here. Also, a lot of old weapons have problems with their triggers, and need to be recoded. What happens when I use an armor attack that has a specific element with a weapon that triggers to Harm/Void? 
If your armor has an attack of a specific element (e.g. Golden DragonSlayer and many class abilities), the armor’s element should be used instead of the weapon’s, even if the weapon is triggered to do another element UNLESS the weapon is triggered to do Void damage. I’m fighting in the Dragon’s Revenge challenge in the Guardian Arena. I’m fighting dragons, but my Dragon Blade is healing them! 
In the Dragon’s Revenge challenge, the Dragon Blade transforms into the Dwagon Blade, a replica that deals -20 to 0 Earth damage with +20 BtH. I guess this is what the staff meant by revenge. Will my Rare Dragon Blade, Mega DragonBlade, Dragon Bow, Dragon Partisan, or Dragon Scepter turn into the Dwagon Blade in the Dragons Revenge challenge in the Guardian Arena? 
No, they won’t. Only the temporary Dragon Blade makes that transformation. Is Death element the same as Void? 
Essentially no…these two are different from each other. Void’s symbol is represented by a Black “?” while Death’s symbol is represented by a white “?”. Are there any monsters that Harm or Void doesn’t deal 100% damage to? 
Yes, there are:
*Note: For the monsters in which there is only a Void resistance listed above, the Harm resistance should be the same. What directly deals Harm and/or Void damage?
