Q: Dear Sage,
Many soulmelds allow you to invest essentia to gain an enhancement bonus on attack and damage rolls. Does this mean the soulmeld counts as a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction?
A: Yes. As long as the attack granted by the soulmeld has an enhancement bonus of +1 or greater, it counts as a magic weapon for overcoming DR.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
