Carsomyr, The Holy Avenger is a holy two handed sword which can only be used by paladins and its class kits. This limits the use of the weapon to a paladin Gorion's Ward, Keldorn, or those with access to Use Any Item. Because this weapon is a lvl 5 enchanted weapon, it's unaffected by spells such as Absolute Immunity and Improved Mantle.

|“||Carsomyr is a weapon of legend, perhaps one of the most powerful blades ever forged on Faerun, though its origin and history is thought purposefully forgotten, such that the sword itself never overshadow the importance of the struggles that must be fought today. It is infused with the very essence of virtue, and requires as much from any paladin that would hope to wield it. The evils of the Realms must truly stand aside when this weapon is brought to bear, their magic dispelled with a word, steadfastly resisted with ease. Carsomyr also harbors a special distaste for the forces of evil and chaos, and such creatures must fear additional damage from its touch in battle.||”|
Carsomyr +6 offers the wielder a 50% magic resistance, allows the user to use dispel magic three times per day, dispels conjured weapons every time it hits and does +6 additional damage to creatures of chaotic evil alignment (1D12 + 12 total). The two handed sword after upgrading now inflicts 1d12 +6 damage base and has +6 THAC0 bonus, a speed factor of 4 and a weight of 6 lbs. The item value is raised 5000 to 25000 gold.
|“||Even a Holy Relic as powerful as Carsomyr is made even greater when combined with the Eye of Tyr.||”|
