Identifying the magical properties of the item will reveal:
- Good accuracy enhancement
- Great damage enhancement
- Great necromantic enhancement
- The Butterfly Axe radiates neither good nor evil
The axe has Good accuracy and damage bonuses in combat. When used against goblin-type foes the damage bonus is increased to Great. Each foe slain by the Butterfly Axe provides the wielder with a Fair temporary bonus to health. This health bonus does not heal existing wounds, and all temporary health gains vanish when combat ends, possibly leaving the wielder unconscious or dead.
