Secret Frosty Westernesse

Reported by: wolf.trickster@… Owned by: magnate
Milestone: 3.1.1 beta Keywords: frost weapon


My Westernesse weapon does frost damage, even though it's not stated in the weapon description. Self-knowledge also says it's a frost weapon. 3.1.0 beta.

Actually--it appears this happens with every weapon I wield, now...

Whoops - seems I messed something up with the new slay_table. Thanks for the report - I'll look into it.

Ok, found it, fixed in [c68f5a8] (SVN r1297). If I'm right, your Westernesse is only frosty against poison-resistant creatures. If you find a creature that doesn't resist poison, it will suddenly turn into a Secret Venomous Westernesse.

Sorry about that.

I don't think this is the problem. Every weapon I wield is frost brand now, from a store bought dagger to the Maul of Gondolin. It does not show up as frost brand when I inspect the weapon I'm holding, but it does show up as frost brand in self-knowledge. It does not happen if I am bare-handed.

It affects every creature that does not resist frost, excluding creatures that are *slay* targets if the weapon I'm wielding has *slay*.

Are you wearing a ring of Ice? That would brand your main weapon with ice, right?

comment:6 Changed 12 years ago by wolf.trickster@…

Oh! I had no idea it did that. (I don't think rings of Element do that in Zangband 2.4.0, so it threw me.)

The ring should probably say 'confers frost brand' in its description, then. All it says is it gives res ice and an activation effect.
