# Soak

From Salem Wiki

## About

Beanieman: Damage is sqrt(phlegm / 10k) * 10.

Beanieman: Where phlegm is of course specified as per the server's internal idea of preciseness. So 5 points would be 5000 to the server.

Beanieman: Which means that if the game tells you that you have 20 points of phlegm then the formula would read sqrt(20k/10k) * 10

Beanieman: Soak is then simply subtracted from that number.

Beanieman: So, basically, if you have less then 45 (45000 to the server) phlegm, hitting a brazier with increased soak accomplishes nothing.

Beanieman: Note that it counts present phlegm when determining damage, not the maximum cap
