Notes

  • Not restricted.
  • When bless weapon is cast on crossbow bolts, it adds a temporary blessed bolt item property (also known as "on-hit: slay rakshasa"), which will instantly kill any rakshasa hit by the bolts.
  • Properly effects vampire player characters.
  • Stacking:
  • An existing attack bonus (temporary or permanent) will be replaced by the attack bonus component from this spell if it is greater.
  • An existing damage bonus will be replaced by the damage bonus component from this spell if it is both matching and greater, there are noted exception above.
  • Restricted weapon enchantments cannot be used with magical weapons, weapons with any property, or stacked with each other.
  • Non-restricted weapon enchantments can be used freely in any weapon and stacked with one another; even on Restricted weapon enchantments.
  • Players commonly seek out bronze weapons (which have no properties) to have blank weapons to be able to apply Restricted weapon enchantments first, and then cast additional Non-restricted enchantments.
  • Casting a weapon enchantment on a target with an invalid main hand weapon (due to the weapon already being enchanted or possessing magical properties) will attempt to apply the weapon enchantment to the offhand.
