5E Damage types: How much is a point of [x] damage worth?


Expert Long Rester

I've been playing with the idea of allowing zealots to just make their extra damage weapon damage instead of radiant or necrotic. It sounds like that would be a slight, but really marginal, overall increase.


Damage Effectiveness: This table includes data from the Basic Rules, Monster Manual, and Volo's Guide to Monsters. (I decided to leave out custom monsters/NPCs from the adventure paths.)
Since the monsters from the Basic Rules also appear in the Monster Manual, I hope that doesn't mean they were counted twice.
