You summon a weapon of glittering flashing colors of your choice, for which you are proficient. The weapon functions as a +1 version of the weapon created. In addition, as a swift action you can choose to discharge from your weapon one of the seven colors of the weapon, chosen from the list of colors shown under prismatic ray. Saves and spell resistance apply to the discharged effect as normal.

If the created weapon is a ranged weapon, it creates its own ammunition and the prismatic effect is discharged through the ammunition.

Once you use a color, it disappears from the weapon and you can t select that color again for the duration of the spell. Once all seven colors are used, the weapon vanishes.

No one else can use your prismatic weapon, though you need not wield it at all times. You can stow, drop or hand the weapon to another character. If you cast this spell a second time while the previous weapon is still active, the first weapon is replaced by the new one.
