Aeon Bane is a Mythic Ability unlocked exclusively by progressing through the Aeon Mythic Path in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Mythic Abilities are unique abilities bestowed upon Mystic Heroes when they ascend to certain levels on the respective Mythic Path. These powerful abilities are a crucial component to crafting Builds, as they provide benefits that synergize with specific Spells, Feats, Traits, and Classes.

Aeon Bane Effects
At 4th level, Aeon gains an ability to make his weapons and spells especially deadly against his enemies. For a number of rounds per day equal to twice your mythic rank, you can make any weapon you wield count as having Bane quality, your spells gain a bonus equal to your mythic rank to caster level checks to overcome spell resistance, and every hit you make with weapons or spells dispel effects from the target, as per the Dispel Magic spell.
Additionally, if you have inquisitor's bane ability, the number of rounds per day stack, and you gain the same bonuses while using inquisitor's bane ability.
At 9th rank, Aeon's bane damage increases by 2d6, and the bonus to attack and damage rolls by 1. His first attack each round automatically dispels an effect from the target. Additionally, his Spells and abilities can be used as a move action instead of a standard action.

Aeon Bane Tips & Notes
- At least as of 1.3.7, despite the description of Aeon Bane, the dispel effect does not happen on most spells. It only appears to happen on "Ray" spells, e.g. ones that can benefit from Weapon Focus: Ray or Improved Critical: Ray. Other spells, even touch spells with attack rolls, do not benefit from Aeon Bane.
- Part of the bonus damage from Aeon Bane is of a generic "energy" type (the additional damage gained later is "holy" damage and what follows doesn't apply to this) and, on a character with at least one another source of elemental energy on their attack, can be a way to rapidly trigger bonus damage from Elemental Barrage. The bonus damage from Elemental Barrage will itself also trigger bonus bane damage.
- At least as of 1.3.7, the dispel effect from Aeon Bane will dispel effects from enemies that really shouldn't be able to be dispelled (such as Fast Healing or Outflank).
