Weapon glow

Weapon glow is a glowing effect that typically appears on enchanted weapons. Some weapon glows are intrinsic effects on magical weapons. (These organic glows cannot be overridden by enchantments.) But most weapon glows that you might see are from enchantments. This page lists the glows players can apply to weapons with the help of enchanters. It is designed to help players (especially new players) determine the relative cost, brightness, and color of all available glows.

It is worth noting that glows do not look the same on all computers. Video settings have an influence, which means the same glow will look stronger on a high-end video card. Even so, there are still varying intensities of glow which are apparent on any given computer.

A very important feature of this list is that it should include photos of the glows so that the various levels of brightness can be compared. Glow brightness is ranked by level, starting at 1 for the dimmest glow (example: Red-2 is brighter than Red-1).

Screenshots of the glows against a dark background can be easily obtained by using "Inspect" on a player who has a glow of interest and taking a screenshot of the inspect window.

  • Since Patch 2.4, all glows are visible on the character selection screen.
