0.8.10 - Linux - Relic stats seem low?

I have 87M intelligence vs mortom’s < 100k defense. The duplicate spell casts of death blossom dealt 0 damage from Bow of Apocranox.
A regular death blossom cast from my creatures does ~3-5k damage (1% of HP).

Not sure if relic stats are bugged, or even what they are based on.

Okay, so it is doing ~0.5% HP damage with another round. Weird.

oh, Mortem had repelling.
