Re: Simple Q&A D&D 3.5 (by RAW) XXII
How would a weapon with both the Merciful and the Vicious enchantments work? Since they both grant an untyped damage bonus, would they stack? Or would they be treated as multiple instances of the same bonus type, where only the higher of the two rolls would be added to the weapon's damage?
The Merciful enchantment says that all damage dealt by the weapon is nonlethal. Would this apply to damage dealt by other enchantments on the weapon, such as Flaming, Frost, Shock, and Vicious?
If yes, if an enchantment that deals energy damage such as a Flaming enchantment becomes nonlethal, does it retain its energy type for the purpose of energy resistance/immunities?
Would the 1d6 damage that a Vicous weapon deals to is wielder become nonlethal if the Merciful enchantment is added?
(Whoops, my bad with the mis-numbering. Derp.)
