Aura moderate necromancy; CL 10th; Weight —; Price +3 Bonus
A necrotic burst weapon functions as a necrotic weapon that also bursts with unlife upon striking a successful critical hit. The negative energy does not harm the wielder, nor does it heal or harm undead. In addition to the extra negative energy damage from the necrotic ability (see above), a necrotic burst weapon deals an extra 1d10 points of negative energy damage on a successful critical hit. If the weapon’s critical multiplier is x3, add an extra 2d10 points of negative energy damage instead, and if the multiplier is x4, add an extra 3d10 points of negative energy damage.
Even if the necrotic ability is not active, the weapon still deals its extra negative energy damage on a successful critical hit.
