Scrolls of increase melee damage may increase the damage bonus of one of the PC's wielded melee weapons (y if weapon is dx+y type), unless the scroll is cursed in which case damage is decreased.

If the PC is wielding two weapons, the weapon in the right hand will be targeted by the scroll. If the PC is not wielding any weapon, the scroll will have no effect.

These scrolls are less effective on weapons which already deal high damage, and may fail to have any effect at all on such weapons.


Although ineffective at improving high-damage weapons, they can useful for improving weapons which have low base damage but desirable properties, such as phase daggers.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]
