What spells are boosted against each type?

OK..I have been paying attention in this game so I know pretty much all of what spells are boosted against what type. HOWEVER there seems to be several monster types that have 2 or even 3 weaknesses. For instance, I have found that balance monsters are weak to myth, life AND death spells. fire is boosted against ice, etc etc. Is there a list somewhere that has ALL of these weaknesses/boosts listed? I would love to have one if so. In fact I still havent figured out what myth and storm monsters are weak to. Perhaps they are weak to each other? Anyway I would love to have some info on this please. :-)

Most of the weaknesses come in pairs. The main pairs are:

Fire-Ice
Storm-Myth
Life-Death

Most of the time, a rank n mob has 10(n-1)% resistance against damage of its own school and takes a 10(n-1)% damage boost against damage from its paired school. Bosses generally have an extra 20% damage resistance against their own school, but that's capped at 80%.

The exception is that balance monsters have the normal resistance against balance damage, but an extra 10(n-1)/3% damage boost against each of myth, life, and death. There are three damage boosts against balance, but each are only 1/3 as large as the normal damage boost.

Thanks for the replies guys...very informative...especially the part about balance only being 1/3 weak against life death and myth. Now i know why i couldnt take down a gearhead with 400 life points left in one shot with a cyclops and myth trap lol :?The other ones i pretty much figured out already but the balance thing threw me for a loop a little lol

Sometimes when I'm playing I will see people posting in the text chat use X type magic against Y mob. Is this an add-on, or is that feature just in the drop-down menu chat or something and I missed it somehow?

I'm a newbie to this game (just joined this week!) so I'm still trying to figure it out.

Is it possible for an administrator or moderator to "sticky" this post? It has some valuable information that new players and veterans might enjoy.
