This spell creates a glowing spear of white energy positive energy. At the caster’s discretion, the weapon can appear and function as a shortspear, a spear, or a longspear. The caster can wield the sunspear proficiently as a melee weapon with an enhancement bonus to attack and damage rolls of +1, plus an additional +1 per 3 caster levels above 5th level. The spear glows brightly providing illumination as per the light spell.
The caster can also use the sunspear to make a single melee touch or ranged touch attack in order to cure or inflict damage. The sunspear’s enhancement bonus applies to this attack. The sunspear can be hurled up to the maximum range of the spell with no penalty to the roll. A successful attack results in a brilliant blast of positive energy infl icting 2d4+2 points per caster level. The victim must also make a Fortitude save or be blinded for 1d4 rounds.
If the caster elects to use the healing effect, she must touch a willing ally or make a ranged touch attack to a distant ally. If successful, the recipient is surrounded in a bright nimbus of white light and cured of 2d4+2 points per caster level. As with other positive energy effects, this effect damages undead. Any excess hit points over the target’s normal maximum, gained for the effect, remain for 1 round per caster level as temporary hit points.
When the sunspear is used for either the special attack or healing effect, the spell ends regardless whether or not the touch was successful.
