Weapon (any), varies (requires attunement)

This magic weapon is imbued with elemental energy. Any hit with it deals extra damage. The type of damage is determined by the DM, or by rolling a d10 to decide from one of the ten damage types below. The amount of extra damage is determined by the weapon's rarity and its damage type, as detailed in the following chart.

Force or
Acid, Cold, Fire, Lightning, Necrotic,
Poison, Radiant, or Thunder
Common 1 1
Uncommon 1d4 1d6
Rare 1d12 2d6
Very rare 1d6 + 1d8 2d8
Legendary 2d10 1d8 + 1d10

Variant: +1 Elemental Weapon[edit]

If the elemental weapon is of at least "uncommon" rarity, it may grant you a +1 or higher bonus to attack rolls you make with it. For each +1 bonus the weapon has, the extra damage from it is reduced as if it was one rarity category lower. A very rare +2 longsword of lightning for example would have a +2 bonus on attack rolls, and on a hit deal an extra 1d6 lightning damage.

Variant: Elemental Weapon of Resistance[edit]

If the elemental weapon is of at least "rare" rarity, it weapon may grant you damage resistance to an opposing damage type on the preceding chart. While it is wielded, a radiant warhammer of resistance may grant you resistance to necrotic damage, for example. The extra damage from this kind of elemental weapon is reduced as if its rarity category was 2 lower.
