The other day I was battling an earth elemental in the undercellars, using the Burning Earth longsword. My understanding is that it's supposed to strike as a +4 weapon - however, against the elemental I was getting the 'weapon ineffective' notice in the game log, which led me to believe that it's actually striking as a +1 weapon.
A couple questions from this:
1) Is the sword supposed to strike as +4? If so, I'll happily do further testing to verify my finding and report it on Redmine.
2) If it is bugged, can I simply change the enchantment level with Near Infinity to fix it, or will that cause other problems with the item? I used to fix items like this (e.g. Daystar) before v2.0, but I don't know if it's still safe to do so.
And unless anyone already has the answer to the following at their fingertips, I'll also try to test other items with situational enchantment levels, like Jerrod's Mace and Daystar in BG2 (not to mention Burning Earth in BG2) to see if they're working as intended.
Thanks in advance for your insights!
