BOOM! Here comes the BOOM! Ready or not...

This from the Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach - Ten Ton Hammer crew: Anybody with half a brain can storm into a dungeon and try to cut a swathe through enemies. It takes careful planning of spells, Feats, Enhancements, enchantments, and items to get maximum boom. Join Darkgolem as he takes us through some of the more difficult math and demystifies the art of boom:

When using direct damage spells, consideration should be made about what type of spell should be cast. Most important to consider is the resistances your opponent has to damage. Some creatures, of course, are resistant to different types of damage, and these drastically reduce how much damage you do with damage spells. When in doubt, lightning is often most effective. If a creature is immune to most or all types of damage, always use force damage. Nothing is resistant to, saves against, nor is spell resistant to, Magic Missile (at the time when this article was written) with the exception of rare spell casters using Shield spells.
