Hitsplat is a term used to refer to the damage icon appearing above a player, an NPC, or a monster, while in combat. A hitsplat usually results in the reduction of hitpoints. A splat of disease usually results in a loss of skill points, but can also affect hitpoints. All hitsplats have a number in the centre, which determines the number of hitpoints or levels in a skill that you have either lost or gained.
Types of hitsplat
The colour of the hitsplat usually gives an indication of the type of damage and the number inside the amount of damage dealt. Hitsplat depicts the magnitude affection of an attack, effect, however a block or miss will always induce a 0, but the randomization result is never shown. Whenever a heavy damage is dealt, the same splat background is used, and it is possible for the number to overlap the splat's edge.
