    Blades of Shade Question

    Hello, so back in the day, the Blades of Shade were really popular because of the fact that they dealt magical damage. Anyways, I decided to start farming for them today, and after around 30 minutes of farming I got them. Here's a pictures of what they now look like compared to what they used to look like:

    I noticed that the weapon description in-game says nothing about magical damage, and I was wondering if the Blades still deal magical damage? Thanks to anyone who knows!

    Yes, it does still do magical damage. However, this weapon is quite bad now. The dreadnaught weapons and ashes pack weapons all do magical damage.

    Dumb question, but how do you know they do magical damage if it doesn't explicitly say so?

    I would think the easiest way to figure out whether a weapon deals either physical or magical damage is to equip it and then look at one of your powers that requires a melee weapon to use, such as vicious charge or assassin's strike, and take a look at what type of damage the initial hit does.

    In this screenshot I have equipped the Fancy Valencian Poleaxe, a weapon with absolutely no magical characteristics. If you look in the description of the Assassin's Strike, it deals physical damage as expected.

    This next one I have the Haywire Armada Blade equipped. All of the haywire weapons deal magical damage, so the description now displays that Assassin's Strike will deal magic damage.
