Sap
Ailment
Sap status icon.png
You deal less damage.

Sap is an Elemental Ailment associated with lightning that causes the affected targets to deal up to 20% less damage, based on the amount of Lightning Damage in the hit,[1] for 4 seconds.

The experimented base types have alternative help text, which indicated they have an alternative default value 6% less damage for 4 seconds.

Sap's magnitude is given by the formula: (100/3) * (Damage / ailment threshold)^0.4.[2]

Version history

Version Changes
3.10.0
  • Scorch, Brittle and Sap now all have a base duration of 4 seconds (from 2).
3.9.0
  • We've added an Ailment Threshold to monsters. In the great majority of cases, the Ailment Threshold matches the monster's Maximum Life. It primarily differs for especially high-life monsters (such as The Shaper), where the threshold is reduced to allow ailments to be applied with hits that wouldn't ordinarily reach the required Life thresholds.
  • The alternate ailments Sap, Scorch and Brittle have a slightly different calculation as they have lower caps on their magnitudes.
3.5.0
  • Introduced to the game.
