I am playing a bladebound magus and have the problem dealing damage against demons due to there immunities (electricity) and resistancies (fire, cold, acid). All I could find was Vampire Touch but there is a big gap between a shocking grasp damage and a vampire touch. Since the spell has to have a range of touch we are even more limited here. I was wondering if it is possible to make the black blade holy to deliver the damage but I think that only the weapon damage would be holy but not the spell damage on it. I could not find something about it though. Or maybe there exist a proper sonic damage dealing spell I have not found yet.

BTW. this problem is not limited to the magus it counts also for other builds like the arcanist blade adept etc.

Anyone having an idea here?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I am still building it at the moment. We will start Wrath of the Rightous next week! It is not going to be a magus but an swachbuckler1/ arcanist blade adept6/eldritch knight10/arcanist3 but the problem is still the same. \$\endgroup\$ – ruedi Apr 1 '16 at 16:51

There is an arcana that will give you the option to make your blade holy called Vampiric Touch. It does require you to be level 12. This will only affect your weapon damage, not spells delivered with spellstrike.

Some passable spells for dealing damage:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Wow great! thanks! Do I get that right, making my blade holy does not mean I can put shocking grasp on it and it will overcome electricity imunity don't it? The holy counts only for the blade damage? \$\endgroup\$ – ruedi Apr 1 '16 at 16:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes. You're weapon will be holy but the spellstrike remains unaffected. \$\endgroup\$ – Nickmagus Apr 1 '16 at 17:02
