Physical Damage is the most common type of damage in the game. It is available from all weapons except for Staves, as well as damage from bashing, and many skill lines are centered around Physical Damage. In addition, most enemies in the game will deal Physical Damage, particularly if they fight with melee attacks. Physical Damage also includes damage from falling.
