  • Support. Static bonuses mixed with conditional ones, me likey. Conditional bonuses are really good too I think. ~ BigShotFancyMan 08:03, 3 July 2019 (MDT)
  • Oppose. I don't feel like this weapon could just be dropped into any campaign as one of the conditional bonuses doesn't really do that much while also only affecting specific creatures. Besides that the weapon just feels like the banishment spell on a stick, and at least for me doesn't seem that unique or interesting.--Blobby383b (talk) 20:31, 7 September 2019 (MDT)
I find its conditional effect similar, albeit way more powerful, to the 5e SRD:Holy Avenger which is even more niche considering the class pre-req. Banishment on a stick to me implies multiple uses where this does require recharge at dawn, preventing any abuse in my opinion. Food for thought!   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   09:53, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
I see the conditional effect on this weapon as much weaker than that of the holy avenger's, but the holy avenger itself is harder to use in campaigns so each item has their pros and cons. I do generally like conditional effects on items as well as they provide an opportunity to do something unique, but I don't really see how this weapon's conditional effect is that exciting. Also, by banishment on a stick, I meant the main effect of the weapon was its +3 bonus to att/dmg rolls, and although the banishment spell is strong, you can only use it once(which you are right, it does prevent abuse), but as such, it feels like the effect was added on to the weapon. Either way, it is interesting to hear your thoughts on the weapon even if we don't necessarily agree, I can still see where it is your coming from. Cheers.--Blobby383b (talk) 11:43, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
I'm curious how you find this weapon's "instant kill" less strong than the extra damage from Holy Avenger? I find your thoughts most interesting as well :-)   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   13:36, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
Is it an "instant kill"? I believe that the effect only shatters a creature's body when you reduce the creature to 0 hp instead of leaving a dead body to prevent it from being reincarnated. I may be wrong through, why do you think it is an instant kill?--Blobby383b (talk) 14:09, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
I thought that because I read too fast. It is as you said. I'm still supportive though :p thanks for helping me understand this correctly.   ~BigShotFancyMan   talk   14:38, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
Np, the page is still good, but it seems to just not be my cup of tea. Either way, I am glad that we got the chance to discuss this even if we didn't agree in the end. To each their own.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:55, 11 September 2019 (MDT)
