I really enjoy watching my Palico toss Meowlotov Cocktails at monsters and charge at them with the Rath-of-Meow, and I'd like to maximize the damage of those attacks.
How is the Meowlotov Cocktail's and Rath-of-Meow's damage calculated? Does it scale with weapon damage at all? Melee or ranged? Does blunt or cutting weapon type make a difference? Can these attacks apply elemental damage or status effects? Can they deal critical hits?
