This template returns the damage (type) for a specific theme ability. A future update will add hero abilities.

The template uses the following parameter:

The name associated with the specific damage.


Theme ability damageType

{{Data damageType|Frenzy}}

x damage, 1 pierce, range 1.6 (Melee)

Hero ability actionPoints (to be added)

{{Data damageType|Infernal Rain}}
(No damage type is returned, as this hero ability data has not been added yet to the template.)

Technical details

Damage type data comes from Wildermyth's.json files. For example, assets/data/effects/pets/fireChicken_lightFire.json includes the following line:

{ "class": "Damage", "amount": "2", "type": "MAGIC", "pierce": "1" }

This shows the type of damage (magic), the (non-formula constant) amount of damage (2), and that the damage also pierces (for 1).
