Saving Throw Will negates; Spell Resistance yes


You infuse the metal of a melee weapon with the fearsome aura of a mighty hero. Brandishing the weapon, which is a swift action, gives the wielder a +4 item bonus to Intimidate checks. When struck in melee, opponents with fewer HD than the wielder must make a Will save; opponents of 4 HD of more that fail the save are shaken for 5d6 rounds. Opponents with 4 HD or less become panicked for 5d6 rounds. An opponent that succeeds on the saving throw is immune to this effect from the same weapon for 24 hrs.
