XP Value: 500xp
The spirit arrow consists of an arrowhead of white flint attached to a wooden shaft. It may be fired from any bow, and if the attack is successful the victim suffers ld6 points of damage.
Spirit arrows ignore various protection spells that seek to protect the target of the attack, such as stoneskin, fire shield, and others. In addition, Armor Class gained by magical means (armor, bracers of defense, rings of protection, cloaks of protection, enchanted armor, etc.) are also totally negated. Only the actual armor class of the target is used for determining attack rolls; a wizard wearing bracers of defense +8 and a ring of protection +3 is considered AC 10 for purposes of striking.
Regardless of whether the spirit arrow strikes its intended target, the arrow is destroyed. Spirit arrows have no bonuses to hit or damage (though bonuses from a high Dexterity, specialization, and the like still apply).
