you could make every skill do an "if" check to see if would do damage or not.
MV formulas dont have a limit on the size so easy to do. (unlike VX which has a limit to formula size)
formulaA > 1 ? formulaA : 1

I'll be honest with you, I don't know how to implement that, if you could give me an example, I'd appreciate it,

+1 at the end of the damage formula

value = Math.floor(ArcanePotencial) +1;

do you think that's okay?

Don't know, i won't be that complicated
I just changed the damage formula to (a.atk * 4-b.def * 2) + 1
This format

All of these will work but only if you want the minimum damage to be 1 before things like elemental weaknesses/resistances, physical/magical damage rates, critical hit multipliers, etc. are applied.

If you want it applied afterwards, you'd need a plugin or at least a little "scriptlet". You'd probably want to apply it after damage is calculated but right before damage is actually applied to a battler's HP.

1 note for all of these suggestions (including my own) and only realize this after reading wave's comment.
these will completely negate any kind of damage changed into healing.
like when using <absorb element: fire> from plugins

edit: almost all
+1 at the end of the damage formula
this 1 would still work with absorb element plugins

Alright guys, I already found a solution using '' if '' as suggested by @Tiamat-86 and it worked.
This was my solution
var ArcanePotencial = ( user._criticalCount * 0.5) * ( user.mat * 3) - ( target.mdf * 2); if (ArcanePotencial < 1){ var ArcanePotencial = 1; } "

I'm not very knowledgeable about Js, mine was always the visual part of the games and this is the first time that I am making a game by myself, so I appreciate all your opinions and advice.

Its been almost 6 months since i've been here last and 5 years before that. the worst part is losing the game you were working on in a cpu fire.

Well time to go at it again.
my game is coming together im so happy
In this day and age, i might switch back to RMXP. I’ve lost faith in all the new plugins.
Wow it's been forever since I last logged in! I STILL want to make a game... I'll start it one day for sure!! It's a dream of mine.
This days I couldn't do anything... My mind is so confused and I couldn't work at all, I only wanted to play video games with my friends and that made all my projects delay a lot. Someone else feels this kind of thing sometimes? :/
