There is no save against the effect, but the target can grab a weapon from the environment and rearm itself. This usually requires a standard action, and ends the damage penalty. The target can also change its armor, but only after the end of the battle. Creatures that only use natural weapons, such as beasts and dragons, are immune to the effect. True magic item weapons and armor targeted by this spell can be repaired by a skilled dwarf.
