Bane is a general term for a functional item script that is usually applied to weapons (and rarely shields) to gives either flares, weighting, or extra enchantment(s) to the item when used against a specific opponent as categorized below. Flare choices are Heat, Cold, Electric, Impact, Acid, Vacuum, Plasma, and Steam. As shown in item properties, bane occupies its own property slot (i.e., is Category C) and may be added to almost any weapon (at the discretion of the merchant). With the changes to Enchant, bane weapons can now be player enchanted.

Creature Bane

A Creature Bane weapon gives either flares, weighting, or extra enchant when used against a specific creature. This was the original concept for bane and the idea expanded over the years. Bane is set with the first swing of the weapon.

Demon Bane

Demon Bane includes all creatures classified as demons, but does not include the inherent ability to hit them. An appropriate weapon for this service is enchanted with a minimum +40 bonus and blessable. It acts similar to standard creature bane with the service winner selecting between flares, weighting, or extra enchant.

Since demons are also classified as extraplanar creatures, it is highly recommended to get extraplanar bane instead if given the option.

Extraplanar Bane

Extraplanar Bane weapons are effective against extraplanar creatures, giving extra weighting, enchant, or flares depending on the owner's choice when the bane was added.

Grim Bane

Grim Bane will give either flares, weighting, or extra enchant against all Grimswarm named enemies.

Magical Bane

Magical Bane weapons are effective against magical creatures, giving extra weighting, enchant, or flares depending on the owner's choice when the bane was added.

Reim Bane

All creatures found in Settlement of Reim pay quest. Some weapons created with this bane have been done so with the ability to be permablessed versus the applicable creatures. The addition of a weapon being permablessed when adding this bane is not a guarantee.

Undead Bane

Greater Undead Bane is an ability put on a weapon or shield to give it a permanent ability to hit the undead, as well as an ability that activates only against the undead. This can include flares, weighting, or additional enchantments. Undead Bane is different from permabless as it can come with different flare or weighting, whereas permabless is permanent ability to hit undead and (sometimes) holy water flares.

Loresong will read "the bane of all undead creatures."

Greater Undead Bane - Non-Corporeal Same as regular Greater Undead Bane but the flares, weighting, or extra AS only affect non-corporeal undead.

Loresong will read "the bane of all non-corporeal undead creatures"

Lesser Undead Bane is the same as Greater version, except it requires the weapon to be blessed in order to hit the undead and activate the bane type.

Loresong will read "the bane of all undead creatures that can be affected by it.”

Lesser Undead Bane - Non-Corporeal is the same as Greater version, except the flares, weighting, extra AS only work on non-corporeal undead.

Loresong will read "the bane of all non-corporeal undead creatures affected by it"

There were temporary Undead Bane potions sold at Return to Coraesine Field. These potions gave weapons a temporary Lesser Undead Bane ability.
