Bane weapon/saved posts
Posts relating to Bane weapons and applicable creature clarifications.
>Is there an official list somewhere as to what defines 'extraplanar'? I'm particularly interested in rift/scatter.
Elementals, ki-lins, Vvrael, Ithzir, everything on Plane 4, 5, and the Scatter in the Rift, raving lunatics, and n'ecare.
Well, I stand corrected. ExtraPlanar does work against demons. So yeah. I was wrong. Add the three demon archetypes back on there to my list. As well as that one demon that's birthed from vathors that starts with an N that i can't remember the name of.
>>So weapons with the extraplanar bane could hit'em without being 8x, ala the undead bane simulating permabless?
No. Undead bane is a special situation. ExtraPlanar weapons won't hit undead unless blessed, nor demons unless it's 8x. The creature bane ability just offers the bane effect to the weapon should you be attacking one of those types of creatures.
>>Some clarity may be in order before people spend $34,00 on undead bane.
Here's the skinny on undead bane.
It hits undead no matter what, like permablessed. But it doesn't always translate to hitting demons. Other thresholds have to be met.
The confusion mostly stems on demons in general. We only have 4 demons, and they aren't common occurrences. Demons have a barrier or have special abilities when they are on their plane. If the barrier is destroyed, you don't need an 8x weapon. Demons require a holy weapons. Not all undead bane is holy. Not all demon bane is holy.
