And yes it was a snake,and that made 602 dmg and it was a critical.
Maybe i am wrong at a point,and my barbarian armor is bad vs a certain kind of dmg,vs piercing is not for sure.
Wtv pets can hit harder sometimes if you know to tone down any target armor.
Indeed in fort wars ,use more cold blod and a slow long bow,as Wm long bow,and you can hit damn harder.
Your armor is bad to the damage type that the Hunter and/or mob deals. Snakes deal slashing damage I believe.
Hunter damage isn't very much pierce anymore. Since a few updates ago Hunters have fire, ice and slashing damage arrows (+magic bonus), fire, lightning and slashing damage rings, bows with two or more damage base types (+magic bonus), etc. so don't rely on pierce resistance to judge your protection against archers.
