Which weapons can the penetration brand appear on right now? I've only seen it on artefacts. Emufarmers (talk) 11:44, 4 July 2020 (CEST)

I believe penetration is now exclusive to artefacts and javelins. --spudwalt (talk) 12:25, 4 July 2020 (CEST)
Thanks. Do you know which weapon types it can appear on (crossbows, bows, slings)? The history section on the page suggests crossbows can't have it anymore, but I don't see that in the actual 0.24 notes, and, in any event, I had a penetrating hand crossbow randart in a 0.25 branch game.

I think penetration can only appear on artefact crossbows? (Well, those and the storm bow, but that's an unrand.) The Brand page supports it, at least.
As for this page's history section, I'm pretty sure all that's saying is that regular crossbows used to be able to have the penetration brand (i.e. instead of vorpal, freezing, etc.). Now it's restricted to artefacts. I'll give the page an update. --spudwalt (talk) 10:52, 5 July 2020 (CEST)
