Are weapons of speed really that much more useful than god-blessed weapons? --spudwalt 23:31, 3 April 2013 (CEST)

Not really; that should probably be removed. Most speed weapons will be doing 90% damage at 7/4 = 1.75x the rate of a normal weapon, for a total damage output of 1.575x that of a normal, unbranded weapon. A weapon of holy wrath does an average of 1.75x damage against vulnerable targets. Technically, if you're considering weapons with a base delay of 6, the speed weapon does more damage. Except that the only worthwhile speed 6 weapons are demon blades and demon tridents, which will bless to eudemon blades and trishulas, whose increased base damage will more than compensate. So yes, an Okawaru/Trog-gifted giant spiked club of speed is actually slightly worse in Pan than a TSO-blessed GSC.
Obviously the speed weapons *will* be better against non-unholy targets, and so are of course worth keeping around. Also, since they're artefacts, they might have useful properties that make it worth the small loss of damage against a comparable holy weapon, though that may be situational. -Ion frigate 08:32, 4 April 2013 (CEST)

The chapter about Sif Muna mentions, that she will not protect you from Necromancy miscasts. Her own page just says she will protect you from miscasts. Which one is correct? --BlueCrake (talk) 18:00, 18 May 2014 (CEST)
