The slightly confusing convention in Vanilla to name blessed "slay evil" weapons *slay evil* has popped up here:

Unlike other slays and *slays* i. e. dragon this means not a higher damage but refers to the blessed ego flavor with an additional ability.

This should be corrected or renamed as suggested in the thread.

IMO Having consistant naming conventions is a good thing. Ego types of 'slay foo' connote to me an increased power of killing/damage. *slay evil* I assumed ( before spoling) was even more damaging. I vote for a change.
