From BH unload tooltip. Does xxx-yyy weapon damage.

Does that mean it does xxx-yyy energy damage since the weapon is a blaster?

Or does it mean it does xxx-yyy+avg damage of your weapon?

Your blaster is considered 'weapon damage', so it is doing the damage of that weapon. Weapons unfortunately do not have damage types per-say. Anything that says weapon damage is fully effected by Armor, Defense, Shield, etc.

Now if you have a Cylinder up that gives a different damage type, like combustion cylinder, you will see that the white damage does weapon damage still, but then when it proc's the yellow damage from the elemental damage will be significantly higher as it ignores basically everything and treats the target as naked.

Ok so it does weapon damage. I guess the problem is that I am looking at torhead icons. If I was in game, the unload damage would scale based upon the min/max damage of my equiped weapon.

Thanks for the info folks.
