    drain samba

    i did a search did not see anything about this so might as well ask.

    does drain samba count as magic dmg counted to exp you gain in campaign?
    or is it phy dmg?

    Drain samba isn't damage at all. The HP comes out of the damage you do with a melee attack.

    so does the dmg that is turned into drained count as something when you are doing campaign, or are you telling me that you gain 0 exp for the added effect?

    I too wondered this if it counts as being healed. I tend to use Aspir Samba when tanking on BLU/DNC lately so I can cure myself for points in case it doesn't work

    I can't say for certain but I'd assume that additional effects grant no exp bonus, except for the exp gained for casting the initial buff.

    Drain samba doesn't do damage it all, it just give you HP based on the DELAY of your weapon apparently.

    Easy way to see: Hundred Fist drain samba something.

    I'm fairly certain it counts towards the HP Healed cap though.

    Counts towards healing, from what I've seen with Dancer.

    (And Daedelus Wings are sooo nice for DNC. 300 TP to start with? Heals lots.)

    It's delay and damage done. Hitting for 0 or 1 will not drain any HP at all even with 999 delay. Higher tiers of samba increases the potential HP drained per amount of delay, but I'm pretty sure it's still capped at 1/2 of damage dealt.

    Well, I haven't had someone use Samba III or IV (is there a IV? it's just a well used sub for me) so I can't say there, but I know I get about 30 hp per hit, even when I do 290 from a crit, or an ordinary defender up 110 dmg hit, always 17-30ish drained.
