Following on from the Alchemist Fire thread, but separate enough to warrant its own:
If I use an Arrow of Slaying, or a Bane Arrow, for a specific species as an improvised melee weapon instead of as ammunition for a bow, does it still get the benefits slaying or bane properties?
What if it's used as an improvised thrown weapon?
Assume the user has Catch-Off Guard, Throw Anything, and Improvised Weapon Mastery for the purposes of this discussion.

1) Bane: a magical weapon used as an improvised weapon doesn't benefit from its enhancements, Bane included.
Incidentally, using the longspear as an improvised weapon in this way would not allow you to benefit from any magical enhancements it may possess, nor would you add benefits that apply when attacking with a longspear (such as Weapon Focus (longspear), but you would apply any benefits from using an improvised weapon (such as Catch Off-Guard).
2) Slaying arrow: the above FAQ should apply. The enhancement doesn't work.
Ack, I didn't know about the resistance of fast wights.
