Weapon brands

Post by Idacal » Mon Dec 11, 2017 2:28 pm

Looks like the majority of weapon brands (lightning brand, firebrand, frostbrand, consecrate weapon, desecrate weapon, etc.) are overwritten by any sword form effects, reducing the spell duration from several hours to several combat rounds. This looks like unintended behavior since it really invalidates the effectiveness of weapon brands for classes that receive both a weapon brand and a sword form.

I was wondering why my frost brands seemed to be falling off so quickly. If true, this explains a lot.

A bit of an update after some more testing: It looks like bug is most easily reproduced when a weapon brand and a rune of life is placed on a same weapon. When the rune of life procs its heal, it will strip any weapon brand immediately and return it to the base damage type.
