An earthen burst weapon functions as an earthen weapon that explodes with earth upon striking a successful critical hit. The earth does not harm the wielder. In addition to the extra earth damage from the earthen special ability, an earthen burst weapon deals an extra 1d10 points of earth damage on a successful critical hit. If the weapon’s critical modifier is x3, add an extra 2d10 points of earth damage instead, and if the modifier is x4, add an extra 3d10 points. Even if the earthen ability is not active, the weapon still deals its extra earth damage on a successful critical hit.
