Name Scroll of brand weapon
Icon Scroll of brand weapon.png
A scroll that imbues a weapon with a random brand. Any existing brand will be replaced with a different one, and any brand forbidden by your current god will not be chosen. Artefacts cannot be branded in this way.

Upon reading a scroll of brand weapon, you will be asked to choose a non-artefact weapon from your inventory to receive a permanent, randomly-selected brand. This will also replace any brand currently on the targeted weapon, if any.

If you have already identified the scroll, you may cancel the process by pressing Esc without consuming it.

Melee and ranged weapons have different sets of possible brands:[1]

Melee Weapons

Ranged Weapons

The selected brand will be automatically rerolled in two cases:

  • the new brand is identical to the weapon's former brand;
  • your god disapproves of the selected brand.

Note that the scroll cannot give the antimagic, holy wrath, pain, or speed brands to weapons. Additionally, ranged weapons can't get the penetration brand from this scroll.
