Description

Description

By judging a weapon, you can get an idea of how effective it is in combat and you can compare one weapon against another to see which is the better. You can only judge the mundane damage capabilities of weapons and how well you are able to judge depends on your skills. It costs 25 adventuring points to judge a weapon and twice that to compare one weapon with another.

Note that the maximum and average damage are measured on the same scale, so that average damage will always be lower than maximum.
