My question is: What’s the difference between Wraithbane and Wightbane and which one will work on the Nazgûl when they are added? It seems like these modifiers are just separate so are more of a challenge, but in the books there really isn’t a distinction between wraiths and wights. More importantly, Merry damages the Witch-King of Angmar with a Barrow Blade. Here is an interesting quote:
“So passed the sword of the Barrow-downs, work of Westernesse. But glad would he have been to know its fate who wrought it slowly long ago in the North-kingdom when the Dúnedain were young, and chief among their foes was the dread realm of Angmar and its sorcerer king. No other blade, not though mightier hands had wielded it, would have dealt that foe a wound so bitter, cleaving the undead flesh, breaking the spell that knit his unseen sinews to his will.”
Obviously those spells are represented by Wightbane on the barrow-blades in the mod. But the Witch-King is a Ringwraith. So how is this going to be sorted out when they are added?
Thoughts would be appreciated.
