Description: This spell transforms the caster's melee weapon into a powerful holy avenger, a specially blessed weapon that, when wielded by paladin, acts like a +5 holy weapon that dispels magic on-hit and grants the wielder a spell resistance of 16. Self target only. The On-Hit Dispel effect is capped at caster level 21. If the caster has Abjuration Foci, the Dispel check improves by +1 per focus feat. Divine Champion levels stack with Paladin levels for determining the caster level of this spell. Holy sword can only trigger once per flurry (ie. 2 second cooldown) and has a 1 round cooldown after successfully removing 1+ effects from a target. Can no longer be crafted into wands or scrolls. Non-restricted weapon enchantment.


  • 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.

  • Additionally, the weapon enchantments Bless Weapon, Darkfire, Elemental Weapon, Greater Magic Weapon, and Keen Edge spells cast from items such as scrolls and wands will:
    • Use the Caster Level of the item for the Duration of the spell.
    • Use the Character Level of the item user for the Effects of the spell.
    • Bless Weapon exceptions:
      • Will grant +2d6 damage vs. dragons if the user of the scroll is level 18 or higher. The CL of the scroll is still level 17 and Enhancement bonus is capped at +3.
      • Note: It is possible to achieve +4 enhancement with Loremaster scroll + levels (17 CL scroll + 5 levels from LM = 22 CL scroll), but still requires the base character level to be at least 21 for the effects.
Examples - A Character of various levels using a Greater Magic Weapon Scroll (Caster Level 15)
A level 30 Character will have a duration of 5 hours (15 Caster Level/3 hours) and an enhancement bonus of +5 ((Character Level +3)/4 - capped at +5).
A level 15 Character will have a duration of 5 hours (15 Caster Level/3 hours) and an enhancement bonus of +4 ((Character Level +3)/4).
A level 5 Character will have a duration of 5 hours (15 Caster Level/3 hours) and an enhancement bonus of +2 ((Character Level +3)/4)
