Foebane +3 is an enchanted bastard sword which inflicts 2d4 +3 points of damage to enemies, and +6 points of damage to shapeshifters, undead, and all extra-planar beings, such as demons and planetars. The weapon has +3 bonus to THAC0, it weighs 7 lbs, and it has a speed factor of 5. It requires 11 strength to wield. This item appears in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal.

LocationEdit

It can be found on the first floor of Watcher's Keep.

In-game descriptionEdit

The Archmage Demron created this powerful blade for Captain Fflar of Myth Drannor. When the elven city fell, the sword was lost beneath the rubble of the once great metropolis.

UpgradeEdit

Foebane can be upgraded by butler Cespenar, which requires Fflar's Scabbard and some gold. Foebane +5 now inflicts 2d4 +5 points of damage to enemies, and +6 points of damage to shapeshifters, undead, and all extra-planar beings, such as demons and planetars. The thaco bonus is now +5, and the weight and speed factor have been reduced by 2 units. The weapon gives the wearer +1 bonus to all saving throws and, every time the weapon hits, Larloch's Minor Drain is cast instantly at the target. There is no save against the spell.

In-game descriptionEdit

Reunited with Fflar's Scabbard, Foebane is an even greater weapon than the legends claimed.

FunctionalityEdit

The game states that it does bonus damage against all extra-planar beings, but it doesn't actually do extra damage against planetars and many extra-planar beings. Most extra-planar beings that appear in the game (such as elementals, genies/djinni, mephits, and githyanki) do not take extra damage from the sword. This is the case regardless of whichever version of the weapon you are using.

In Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, the description of the bonus damage was altered. Game update v1.3 specifies that the bonus damage applies to demons and devils instead of all extra-planar beings.
