  • Conjuration time: 1s


  • Upkeep is in mana.

  • Arcane Warrior Spellcasting: The spell can be cast with your weapon(s) drawn.
  • Does not affect summoned creatures. It will show the enchantment, but the elemental damage does not seem to be applied.
  • The damage bonuses are determined when the mage casts the spell; changing equipment while the spell is active does not change the damage bonuses.
  • Per the mouse over description in the name bar, only affects melee weapons. Bows and staves do not get a bonus.
