    What does "chipping" mean?

    Seen this term used a lot, not familiar with it.

    It means to chop small pieces off one bit at a time.

    As far as I understand, it's a term for taking shots at the vampires at a distance when you see them running around on the map, "chipping" away at their health. I assume it's to avoid getting swarmed by 4 full health vampires when they engage.

    It is also sometimes referred to as "poke" damage, either from "poking" at vamps long range or from having someone "poke" forward to chip long range and/or bait.

    It's actually almost always referred to as "poke." It's extremely rare for me to see someone use the word "chipping."
