Minor Elemental Edge is a spell that imparts a temporary bonus equivalent to a +15 (3x) enchant to weapons, including runestaves and unarmed combat hand and foot gear. The spell's duration is one (1) swing per level of the caster. An 'edged' weapon is usable by characters of any level or profession (normal level/enchant bonus restrictions do not apply). The +15 bonus applies to both attack (AS) and defensive strength (DS). Each swing reduces the remaining number of swings by one (1) even when the attack misses the target.

Warmages of any level gain an additional benefit from the spell when it is EVOKED. It will enhance a weapon to grant +10 enhancive weapon skill bonus, as determined by the weapon (e.g. a dagger will grant +10 to Edged Weapons skill bonus). Training in Elemental Lore, Earth will increase the bonus by +1 per seed 7 summation of lore ranks. A few notes for the EVOKEd version only:

  • The spell is still cast on the weapon itself (but you do not need to specify the weapon; it will check your hands).
  • The bonus only works for the caster, as such the weapon cannot be passed to others for the same bonus.
  • If you're 1x trained in Thrown Weapons, the spell will always grant Thrown Weapons skill regardless of the weapon the spell is cast upon.

Spell Usage

For the normal version, simply prepare the spell and cast it on a normal (non-magical, non-blessed, non-flaring, non-weighted) weapon. The weapon must meet all of the requirements listed. The evoked version will work on any weapon regardless of its properties, except if it has the normal 902 version already on it. The two versions do not stack.
