Found short sword in pile of bones. Found cursed.

Overview

Weapons are your main source of damage. There are two categories of weapons; Melee weapons and Ranged weapons.

If the required strength is less than the hero's, an additional damage uniformly distributed between 0 and heroStrength-requiredStrength is applied to the attack. That bonus only happens:

A weapon will become identified after 20 successful hits.

Melee weapons

Enchanted weapons

Vampiric

Vampiric War hammer

Enchantments can be found on melee weapons or the boomerang. However, the piercing and wild enchantments cannot be applied to the boomerang.

Upgrading enchanted weapons

When using a standard Scroll of Upgrade on a +N enchanted weapon, the weapon has a probability 1/N (1 if N=0) to keep its enchantment while becoming a +(N+1) weapon (still enchanted or not). Consequently, using a standard Scroll of Upgrade:

  • a +0 or a +1 enchanted weapon will never lose its enchantment,
  • a +2 enchanted weapon has a 50 % probability to lose its enchantment when becoming a +3 weapon,
  • a +3 enchanted weapon has a 66.66… % probability to lose its enchantment when becoming a +4 weapon,
  • etc.

In order to avoid this loss, use a Scroll of Weapon Upgrade. If you are a Warrior still having your Short sword, you can use the reforging trick described below.

Reforging/disenchanting

As a Warrior you can reforge your upgraded Short sword in order to upgrade (+1) another melee weapon (the Short sword will be destroyed). If any of the other classes obtain a short sword through a hero's remains, then they too will be able to reforge the sword. You can safely upgrade an enchanted weapon by reforging an upgraded Short sword, the enchantment cannot be lost during that upgrade (but, in contrary to a Scroll of Weapon Upgrade, a new enchantment won’t be added to a non-enchanted weapon).

As a Mage you can disenchant your upgraded Wand of Magic Missile in order to upgrade (+1) another wand (the Wand of Magic Missile will be destroyed). Like the short sword reforing, the other classes can disenchant the wand of magic missile if they are passed it through a hero's remains.

If you plan to later reforge/disenchant your Short sword/Wand of Magic Missile, do not upgrade it above +1, as the melee weapon/wand you upgrade this way will only gain +1, and the additional levels of upgrade will be wasted.

Weapon generation

Weapon generation follows three steps:

  1. two weapons are created, their type being randomly and independently selected from the table at Weapon/probabilities,
  2. each weapon is randomized according to its type:
    1. a melee weapon has its level randomized following the table at Weapon/random, then acquires an enchantment with a 1/(level+10) probability, following the table at Enchantment/probabilities,
    2. a missile weapon has its quantity randomized,
  3. the weapon which required strength is closest to 10 + numberOfGeneratedPotionsOfStrength (theoretical Hero strength, except for Warriors) is selected and dropped on the floor (75 %), put in an unlocked chest (20 %) or hidden in skeletal remains (5 %).
