The Holy avengers are rare blades well-suited to battling evil in all its myriad forms. They are greatly prized by paladins.[citation needed]


To forge a Holy avenger, a craftsman must both be of good alignment and have the holy aura spell available. He must also be prepared to expend over sixty thousand gold pieces, and a great deal of time and energy.[1]


Ordinarily, a Holy avenger is a cold iron longsword. Its true might is unleashed only in the hands of a paladin, whereupon it becomes a more powerful holy cold iron longsword. In addition, it provides spell resistance to wielder and allies. The paladin can even cast greater dispelling once every six seconds.[1]
