Yeah, but it is confusing. There's no powerful evil slay because it'd be too good. There's only powerful slays for dragons, demons, and undead; most of the *Slay* weapons are just ordinary slay weapons with a stat bonus and some secondary abilities.

I see, thank you. So are there also weapons of *Slay Dragon* (Demon, Undead) that don't slay powerfully and just have other boni?

That aside, here's another IMO: Maybe "lightning" in item names and descriptions should be changed to "electricity" for consistency with "rElec" in the character screen.

The "poison gas" thing might be mildly confusing for new players a well.

No, if there's a powerful slay variant for that enemy type, then *Slay* weapons get the powerful variant. But e.g. *Slay* Orc/Troll/Animal/Evil are stuck with the standard slay because there's no powerful variant.
