[Not an Issue] Arbane's sword + 2 should grant resistance to hold

I'm almost sure Arbane's sword + 2 currently doesn't protect against hold (from Umber Hulks for example).

Can anybody verify this? If yes, it's a bug that should be corrected, right?

    Umber hulks confuse rather than hold.
    Are they with Mind Flayers (psionic blast can stun and Arbane doesn't protect against that).

    Ok, but I'm quite sure I've seen instances where Arbane's sword +2, equipped, didn't protect against hold, such as hold spells and entangle spells.

    It should also protect against friendly party members casting hold/entangle on another party member with AS+2 equipped, right? I think it don't


    Just tested a bit, it protects against Hold from a hostile Carrion Crawler, but not Entangle spell cast by a hostile NPC

    Entangle is not considered to be the same as hold or paralysis. So that one is fine.
