The most common damage-type on Tibia.
Almost all creatures cause it. When you attack with any weapon (Axe, Club, Sword, Distance) or some spells, you cause physical damage.
This kind of damage is often used by knights and paladins. In addition mages use it frequently when killing lesser creatures. Physical damage is affected by the victim's armor value.
Visually, in the Game Window, Physical damage has a special display. It usually appears as Red Text, but while attacking undeads or some elementals it appears as Pale Gray Text, attacking vermin or insects will make Green Text appear, some constructs as Damaged Worker Golems display a Purple Text and fire based creatures as Demons and Fire Elementals will spawn an Orange Text while receiving Physical Damage.

Imbuements

The imbuements in Physical Damage work different than with other types of damage. They rise the base skill of the weapon or spells, which increases damage dealt, but not as a fixed percentage as the others. Depending on the profession and weapon, you can raise your Physical Damage with Slash for swords, Bash for clubs, Chop for axes and Precision for Distance Weapons, and all imbuable helmets. Also Epiphany can raise Physical damage in the single case of the Druids' exclusive spell Physical Strike.

Armor Rating

Almost every piece of armor has Armor Rating (Arm:X). The damage reduced is between half the total armor and your total armor minus one, where only pairs of two armor ratings have any effect. So on average Armor Rating blocks a bit less then 0.75 damage... Equipment with high armor rating have been superseded by Physical Protection in most cases.

Physical Protection

Physical Protection is better than Armor rating, because Physical Protection works in percents of the whole damage and is rounded up to a whole number, this means that 1% physical protection always blocks atleast 1 dmg while 1 armor rating has an average of a bit less then 0.75 damage blocked.
1%: 1 dmg received, 1 dmg blocked; 101 dmg received, 2 dmg blocked.
2%: 1 dmg received, 1 dmg blocked; 51 dmg received, 2 dmg blocked.
1%+1%: 2 dmg received, 2 dmg blocked, 102 dmg received, 4 dmg blocked.

Blockade imbuement can lower damage taken by increasing your shielding, but it does not lower Physical damage taken by fixed percentages. It is still desirable as an addition to your prefered Blocking Set.

The following equipment reduces damage taken from Physical Damage:
