That mod is aimed at giving some love to some weapons you almost certanly skip during your general playthrough by giving them a special effect, changing their behavior, providing more enchantability or just changing some stats.

New enchantments and changes

  • Jade Mirror - 100% status resistance to all poisons, even marsh water

  • Golem's Effectiveness - Golem Rapier, Beast Golem weapons - +0.1 speed and pain buildup, now making those 3 the fastest weapons in the game

  • Calygrey's Valor - Calygrey Mace, Ancient Calygrey Mace - +0.1 speed and rage buildup on player

  • The Good Moon - does 0.15 mana steal instead of 0.2, can be applied to all Wolf weapons, no longer applies to Rondel and Shiv daggers

  • Redemption - now also adds 15 flat lightning and removes 20% physical damage

  • Razor of Woe - Adds a 2% chance to instantly kill a target, can be applied to Rondel and Shiv daggers

  • P.s. No alchemy station arrow recipes were changed

  • P.p.s. Every change with "also" means that the new effect is added on top of existing one

Unfinished features: Werlig spear creates a chain lightning projectile that hits up to 2 foes. I will release it as soon as I've done some polishing. Butcher's Cleaver deals etherial damage just as dreamer's halberd and inflicts Fear status effect. Currently some enemies are stuck in Fear even after effect runs off. Will release it right after fixing the issue.

  • Report to me any balance changes you feel need to be done on the Outward Modding Community Discord I'd love to hear if you have any other ideas for improvements.
