I have been working on a weapon plan for as my character develops and so I have been examining the rules concerning weapons. I got to a point where I am not sure how the rules work. It has to do with enhancement value adding to the hardness and hp of the item under the damaging objects.
Add +2 for each +1 enhancement bonus of magic items.
Add 10 hp for each +1 enhancement bonus of magic items.
Assume weapon has 5 hardness and 10 hp to start with. These values I am confident of. Each level of enhancement increases hardness by 2 and hp by 10.
- Enhancement +1 = 7 hardness and 20 hp
- Enhancement +2 = 9 hardness and 30 hp
- Enhancement +3 = 11 hardness and 40 hp
- Enhancement +4 = 13 hardness and 50 hp
- Enhancement +5 = 15 hardness and 60 hp
What I would like to know is when you have an equivalent +6 to +10 weapon, is that enhancement value factored into the weapon's hardness and hp or does it only count the numerical enhancements?
So say I have a +1 flaming weapon which is equivalent to a +2 weapon. Would the hardness 7 or 9?
