Default Fire bless useability (and death bless ?)

Hi !

Is there a way to know for which weapons and attacks the bless operates ?

For instance :
- Monster attacke (suppose I put a holy shroud on a summoned monster for instance) ?
- Magical bow on a blessed commander (I'd like to try the bow that fires 13 arrows...)
- Special troops like LA Tien Chin ancestor bows.

I tried the later and it doesn't seem the fire bless did something for LA Tien Chin.


The same question arises for death bless. Are the conditions the same ? I seem to remember that some (all ?) spells that dealt damage could be enhanced by death bless.

Thanks for your insights and sorry for my (bad) english !

Same question for the spell that turns your arrows in fire...

Fire arrows is relatively easy - there is a list of weapons which are affected, and no others are. I don't know the list offhand, but it includes most things you would want it to - short bows, long bows, composite bows, slingstones (I think), I think even thrown boulders. Notably it does not include poison bows, nor any magical bows.

Fire bless doesn't affect missile weapons. I *think* that Death bless also doesn't give the 2 AN damage on missile weapons, but it certainly does give the affliction bonus (in fact the affliction bonus applies even to spells cast by sacred mages!). Consequently a hail of arrows from death-blessed LA T'ien Chi sacreds will absolutely mess up elite enemies, giving them huge amounts of afflictions. I'm familiar with this from the sacred Asp Archers in my Tomb Kings mod nation - they are also sacred, and giving them a death bless is an effective strategy. Particularly good against e.g. giants, where there are small numbers of troops and afflictions are very bad news.

Awesome. In recent versions of CBM the Bow of War has an increased number of arrows as well - probably pretty effective with a fire bless!

Are you sure Fire bless applies to ranged weapons? I thought it was just the D bless that did...

He is Talking about Flaming Arrows, not the bless.

Searching for "Fire" in Edi's database would be one way of doing it.
