  • Despite the tooltip description stating you can use the Dip ability to "alter the surface", this does not appear to be possible with any surfaces currently implemented.
  • The effect of dipping is similar to Coatings and mutually exclusive with them.
  • Some Coatings can be thrown on the ground to make a surface. This surface will persist between Long Rests
    • Dipping your weapon in the surface will give the coating effect.
  • Weapons can be dipped into any object with the Burning Burning Condition, including torches, candles, and burning party members. A character can carry burning objects such as torches, and drop them on the ground (which does not spend actions or bonus actions) just before dipping.
