Baldur's Gate Wiki

This is an NPC only item that grants +3 enchantment attacks. Used by Vampiric Wraith creature.

The weapon is used in melee attacks and on a successful strike inflicts 2d4 Slashing damage and +10 Magical damage. It cannot be blocked by Magic resistance or Power level spell protections.

When the weapon strikes a lighting effect plays over the target's sprite (indicating a hit).

The magical damage heals the wielder by 4 points, up to the creature's maximum HP.

There is a 50% chance that the blow will induce a Level drain effect, reducing the experience level of the target by 1. There is no saving throw. It bypasses Magic resistance.

If the 50% level drain occurs, the combat log will display a text string reading - "One Level Drained".
