Description: Adds the keen property to the targeted slashing melee weapon, increasing its critical threat range.


  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • An existing keen property will block the addition of the keen property from this spell. In particular, a player should wait for this spell to expire before casting it again on the same weapon.
  • When cast on a creature, the spell affects the slashing melee weapon in the creature's main hand (if there is one).
  • Creature weapons are never targeted (nor would the addition of keen be effective if they were targeted).
