Simple question, is Poppy's Q magic damage or physical damage?

Also, can her Q crit?

Here's a quick link to a Poppy guide and this one.

In my opinion, Q or Devastating Blow is a physical damage. And yes, it can crit.

Knowing it can crit is nice. Although I don't think the type of damage it does is an opinion.

Does anyone know for sure if its magic or physical? You'd think it would be easy to find the answer to this >_<

I just logged into LoL...

Devastating Blow is a Physical Damage that also has magical damage (+AP).

yes it benefits from AP but that doesn't make it magic damage. if you're going to write a guide on a character at least make sure you know them inside and out.

to answer the OP's question....the ability is pure PHYSICAL damage, and it CANNOT crit.

I was under the impression that it was physical damage and that the attack can crit, but the devastating blow part cannot. Ie:

Attack damage = (Base Damage + Item Damage) * Crit + Sheen + Ability Damage.

So, if you had sheen, 100 base damage, 25 item damage, no crit damage, and so forth, your damage vs a target with 1000 hp and level 5 blow would be:

Crit: (100+25) * 2 +100 (Sheen) + (100+ 80) = 530.
Non Crit: (100+25) * 1 +100 (Sheen) + (100+ 80) = 405

Before armor, of course.
This is the same with blitzcranks power fist, where the damage is:

(Base*Items)*Crit + Base (powerfist) + Base (sheen)

instead of:

(Base*Items)*Crit * 2 (powerfist) + Base (sheen)

Blitzcrank's powerfist doesn't add damage based on items as it is calclated from base damage, so the calculation would probably be:

((Base)*2[powerfist] + Items)*2[crit] + Base [sheen]

So I have another question. With sheen, does her Q do Physical damage + magic damage from sheen, or does sheen just tack on damage as the same type?

I'm pretty sure that the Sheen/Trinity Force/Lichbane bonus has always been physical, as it's just extra damage to your physical attack.
