is used. The weapon is permanently consumed. If the "Key Pickup" option is enabled in the UI tab of the Options menu, the "Highlight items and objects" key must be held down in order to cast Animate Weapon. Attempting to animate a weapon with an item level higher than the level of the gem allows will cost mana and perform the cast animation but have no effect.

Animated Weapons are flying monsters, meaning they can fly over small obstacles. Flyers also can't be damaged by ground effects (e.g. burning ground). Flyers can travel over non-flying monsters without blocking their movement.[1]

Animated Weapons are minions that are considered to be using the original weapon animated. They are therefore affected by modifiers to minions, as well as support gems for weapons, such as Weapon Elemental Damage Support inventory icon.pngWeapon Elemental Damage SupportWeapon Elemental Damage SupportAttack, Support
