I have just used follow-up damage for that, it is close enough to the effect I wanted. Occasionally I have had to use a cosmic modifier on the follow up for some effects to bypass the no penetration modifiers limitation, but rarely.

I suppose I might be going about this totally the wrong way, but I'm a sucker for having the 'bland' sort of magical weapons to be made by less skilled enchanters and the less creative alongside the cool ones that have projected attack and other interesting effects for the powerful artifacts.

Edit: the same goes for accuracy. How would I enchant THAT? I don't want to use the default magic system's magic items because I don't like how the rest of that system works. Imbuements are clunky.
I have just used a base 4 points/+1 for the cost of accuracy base cost. I arrived at the cost two ways: 1) The cost of skill to raise a skilled used skill by one and 2)Extremely limited DX(20 points -80%). As both of those are the same it seems about right.

For both of those things there is the gadget modifiers and such added.
