Can anyone help clear up the prices of magic arms and armor? I am looking at some magic special abilities and they have entries that say things like Price +1 bonus, for example, the magic weapon special ability flaming.
I know that before such an item can have a magic armor or weapon special ability, the item must first have a +1 enhancement bonus. A +1 enhancement bonus is, on its own, 2,000 gp. Does the magic weapon special ability flaming add a different +1 to that 2,000 gp price for a total price of 4,000 gp? Or is the total +2 enhancement bonus combined so that the weapon's price is 8,000g? (This doesn't include the separate prices for the item and its masterwork component, of course.)
