Due to the indestructibility mod, Oath works well with ethereal weapons, and with a high roll its damage output can rival the best weapons in the game while having a fraction of the cost involved. It also features charges of Heart of Wolverine, which can significantly increase damage and attack rating for the player character and their minions or allies.
Defensively, it is one of the few rune words (along with Spirit) that offers general purpose magic absorb, which can be stacked to significantly decrease the amount of damage done by hostile magic of any element.
