The silver saber is a silver sword, commonly used as a secondary weapon in #twoweaponing, as it gives silver damage against lycanthropes, demons, vampires, minor demons (except tengu), and shades, in addition to being a respectable weapon in its own right.
They are randomly generated like any other weapon, but the watch captain in Minetown has a 50% chance of being generated with one, as does any Captain. If Fort Ludios exists, you are extremely likely to find a saber there.
Average damage calculationEdit
We assume the player has expert skill in saber, which gives a +2 damage bonus. A blessed weapon deals 1d4 extra damage against demons and undead, and being of silver, an added 1d20 to silver-hating monsters. The worst case scenario is against a non-undead, non-demon, non-silver-hating monster. The best case scenario is against a undead/demon silver-hating monster.
|Weapon||Against regular small monsters||Against regular large monsters||Worst case scenario||Best case scenario|
|Blessed silver saber+0|
|Blessed silver saber +7|
|Blessed silver saber +9|
Despite the inclusion in the above table, attempting to enchant a silver saber to +9 is generally a very bad idea, as they're quite rare.
