Spell-in-a-Can Items

Some designers have a severe aversion to spell-in-a-can type magic items. I understand the thinking behind that aversion, but there are so many good spells created for Pathfinder that I think we could benefit from a few more spells-in-a-can like the following items for warrior classes.


Bracers of Heavy Shots

Aura faint transmutation; CL 1st

Slot wrists; Price 8,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

[Description]

Each of these purple bracers is marked with an image of a basllista. After being worn for 24 hours, these bracers place the wearer under a constant gravity bow effect in which the weight and density of arrows or bolts fired by the wearer is increased. All shots deal damage as if the weapon were one size larger.

Prerequisites Craft Wondrous Item, gravity bow, crafter must be proficient in bows or crossbows; Cost 4,000 gp


Bracers of Mighty Strikes

Aura faint transmutation; CL 1st

Slot wrists; Price 8,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.

[Description]

Each of these blue bracers is marked with an image of a great sword. After being worn for 24 hours, these bracers place the wearer under a constant lead blades effect in which the momentum and density of melee weapon strikes is increased. All melee weapon attacks deal damage as if the weapon were one size larger.

Prerequisites Craft Wondrous Item, lead blades, crafter must be proficient in bows or crossbows; Cost 4,000 gp


Both of these items are fairly low cost and can provide a noticable advantage to martial classes in terms of damage.

When we are talking about design aversions, I personally hate recursive spells.
