Campaign Design - Spells: Shieldbreaker

Shieldbreaker (found in the Book of Eldritch Might II and Book of Roguish Luck)

Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target, Effect, or Area: One weapon
Duration: Permanent until triggered
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

The weapon you cast this spell on becomes particularly useful against opponents with shields. The wielder ignores armor and enhancement bonuses to a foe's Armor Class gained from a shield. Further, instead of making a normal attack, the weapon's wielder can make a sundering attack against a nonmagical shield that automatically destroys the shield if the attacker wins the opposed check. Shields with a +3 enhancement bonus or the equivalent in magical abilities are immune to the effects of this spell. The wielder may use the shieldbreaking effect only once per casting of the spell.

If used against a foe with the shield spell active, this weapon immediately dispels it.
