Subj: Bane oils
I’m sorry if I’m repeating a question from earlier, I tried to look through the thread and couldn’t find the answer, and this is only my second time in DR since I came back. The Undead Bane oils in Duhn’s Lab, how long do the pours last?

Here’s my other silly question- the armor and shields in Flash of Strength, when would their flares activate? If something tries to attack you, or if something hits you and causes damage?

Thank you!

Karen,

I haven’t seen an official response on this either, however, if they’re anything like the UDB oils that sold several years back, they contained 10 pours, and each pour was 50 uses, if memory serves. I seem to recall it could be extended by either a bless or consecration, though, again, that’s going purely from memory, and there was only undea bane back then, not troll nor grim, so they could be somewhat different.

I would like some more info on the oils as well…
Haw many pours are in a vial?
Do the oils with weighting add to the weighting that may already exist on the item? Same question for flares…
How long do they last?

Thanks!

These questions seem to be floating around in two threads, so I’m only going to answer here.

Oils have five pours.

The weightings are good for 50 hits.

The flares are good for 150 hits.

Assume that nothing stacks.

Do not use on kroderine.

Oh and these bane oils are not new. They’ve had at least one appearance before. So semi-new…ish.

“The flares are good for 150 hits.”

It doesnt go by flare activations? The temp flares at the AG guild work for “30 flare activation” … why not use the same terminology consistently if this is the same thing. Or is one really 30 flare activations, and the other 150 hits (which at standard 20% works out to 30 flare activations on average!)

These good to use on a paladin-bonded weapon or in addition to Sunfist sigils? Or is that what you meant by “assume nothing stacks”?

The reason why “150 hits” is a bit ambiguous is because do you mean hit WITH THE WEAPON or WITH THE FLARE? I am pretty sure you mean 150 hits WITH THE WEAPON (meaning on average 30 flares) because I have the appropriate contextual knowledge, but to someone without that context its going to be unclear.

I really meant to not assume bane oil weighting would stack with existing weighting.

As for paladin-bonded weapon, I’ve never played one, don’t have a clue how that works, so I don’t know. Pretty much the same for Sunfist, but if I had to guess, I’d say yes.

So pouring these on a runestaff does nothing unless you swing at the critters with it? I bought a 600 and 800 scip Undead Bane, I guess I wasted the scrip.

Pretty sure someone said it worked with casting flares way back in the beginning, though that could have been something else and my memory confused them.

Thanks for posting that link. I bought weighting so there’s no flare thats easily visible.
