For more information regarding oils, see the oils category.

Oils are blade enhancements which provide specific, though temporary, additional qualities to silver and steel swords. Some oils are sword specific, while others are general purpose.

Bases

Notes

  • The creation of sword oils (coatings) requires the Oil Preparation skill.
  • All oils have a duration of 24 hours, or "long".
  • Only one oil can be applied per sword at a time. The effects do not stack. Using a new oil on a sword will replace any current oil and its corresponding effects.

All-purpose oils Edit
