I know that you do less damage when bouncing. Does this damage reduction also affect elemental damage?
I'm asking because I got tired of being killed by the Gold Rathian because I bounced of her head, so I started using an armor with Fencing. However, I have to switch weapons to get it (need 2 slots), but my new weapon has less raw but more elemental. (C. Peco SA instead of the nearly fully upgraded I. Lagia)
Also, I wanna know if I have to attack Gold Rathian's head (which is very weak to Thunder but resistant to raw) or still focus on her wings (decent damage from raw and Thunder).
