Description: Sets a melee weapon aflame, granting 1d4 points of fire damage +1 per caster level to a maximum of +10. You can target a specific weapon or a creature with this spell.


  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • Contrary to the spell's description, this spell lasts for two turns per level instead of one.
  • When cast on a creature, the spell affects the melee weapon in the creature's main hand (if there is one).
  • This spell can be cast on seemingly unarmed creatures (such as animals) to target one of their natural weapons. The "right" slot is targeted if possible; the "bite" slot otherwise. A creature with only a "left" weapon (e.g. some polymorphs) will not benefit from this spell.
  • The damage is implemented as an on-hit property. This has a few notable consequences.
    • Damage from on-hit properties is not multiplied for critical hits.
    • Damage from on-hit properties stacks with all damage bonuses on the weapon.
    • Only one on-hit property will ever be applied for a single hit. Thus this spell will not stack with darkfire, nor is it effective on weapons with permanent on-hit properties.
