Version 0.25: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

The holy wrath brand causes a weapon to deal up to an additional 150% damage[1] (minimum 1, averaging 75%) to demons and the undead, and renders it immune to curses. It can be found on any melee weapon, including artefacts.

You cannot wield weapons with this brand if you are a mummy, ghoul, vampire, demonspawn, or lichform character. Worshipers of Yredelemnul should also avoid using it, as doing so will offend Yred.

The holy wrath brand is the Shining One's special brand. At six stars of piety, you can have the brand added to any weapon of your choosing, including all ranged weapons.

Note that this brand does not deal additional damage to non-demonic, non-undead evil creatures, even if they have holy vulnerability.

Tips & Tricks

  • Holy wrath works best on high-damage weapons due to its percentage-based damage output.
  • While weak in most early-game branches (the Lair, the Slime Pits), it excels in the late-game, when most branches are filled with powerful demons and undead. The Crypt, the Tomb, Pandemonium and the Hells are especially good places to have a weapon of holy wrath.

History

  • Prior to 0.24, followers of Ashenzari could not curse weapons of holy wrath.
