Enchantments are magical improvements that can be found on melee weapons and the Boomerang only. It is the melee weapon’s equivalent to glyphs.

An enchantment can be added on a melee weapon (and the Boomerang) with a Scroll of Enchantment. Found melee weapons have a 1/(level+10) probability to already have an enchantment.

Enchantment shocking sword

When this enchantment procs, a lightning is generated, dealing extra lightning damage to the enemy. The lightning can chain to multiple enemies but not the Hero/ine.

The damage is about 1/4 of the original attack damage for the first target. Each bounce reduces damage by about 25%. If the bounce target is non-flying and in water, the bounce damage is doubled for the target and the future bounces.

The choice of the next lightning bounce target is a non-Hero/ine random enemy that has not been hit by the lightning.
