Light burst weapons produced a blinding flash of light on a severe hit to the target.
When a light burst weapon scored a severe hit, it unleashed a dazzling burst of light, leaving the unfortunate subject partially blind and dazed for approximately a minute. Those with particular sensitivity to light, such as drow or kobolds, also suffered the effects of a daylight spell for about six seconds, then had to endure being dazzled.
The wielder of the weapon did not suffer the effects.
