The spell does not work on natural weaponry such as claws and fangs, but it does work against artificial weapons that have somehow become part of the creature, such as a sword that is fixed onto a construct. The weapon does not get a save if its owner is willing to have it affected or if it is left unattended. Weapons carried or wielded by unwilling owners make a Fortitude saving throw with their owner’s save bonus. Magical weapons roll a Fortitude save as normal.

Material Component: A fistful of clay.
