Notes

When ordering, choose "fire".

You can 'invoke <weapon>' or 'invoke <flame weapon>' when it's wielded to perform a special, you guessed it, flame attack.

If you succeed you will get this message

You successfully invoke a gold-veined keris, leaving you a little drained as a result.

If you fail a skill-check (ma.it.talisman), you will take about 420hp damage and get this message:

Despite your best efforts, you can't seem to invoke the power of a gold-veined keris and you feel you have poured rather too much of your vitality into the attempt.

After invoking, there is a cooldown period before further invocations will perform 100%, indicated by the message

You feel you have regained enough strength to invoke a flame weapon again.
