Effectiveness against demons[edit source]

"It is very effective against most types of demons when used."

Until someone actually specifies that Holy Water has a hidden bonus effect/does more damage/is particularly accurate than its +6 ranged attack bonus and +12 ranged strength would suggest, there's absolutely no sense in saying that it is "very effective" against demons.

It's classified as a demonbane weapon though. This probably means it has some kind of extra bonus against demons, but I don't know what that would be. It would be nice to have that added to the article if anyone can figure it out. --The scribe Eek, a goblin! 15:58, 10 October 2020 (UTC)
I absolutely agree with you that it's is very likely/nearly guaranteed that Holy Water has an additional bonus against demons since it's a Demonbane weapon, and it would be excellent if anyone who knows specific numbers/data on it could add it to the article. Until that information is added to the article, I felt that stating "it is very effective against most types of demons" without any evidence seemed highly non-objective. Please do feel free to revert if i'm in the wrong however! Maxizen (talk) 00:08, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm going to revert and modify the sentence to be more NPOV so that while still having the information that it has higher efficacy/bonuses against demons, it will not make it seem like its preferrable over other things. it is on the list of mechanics to find out, but has not been researched yet, and there is a semi vague Mod Ash response about it doing 1.6x (of either damage/accuracy or both, it is unclear) Choppetalk 00:19, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
