How would your opponent know that it was a +3 sword? This is similar to the
example of an illusion of some powerful person. If your opponent doesn't
know them, then the illusion doesn't have their stats. However, if the
illusion was of some particular +3 sword that your opponent would recognize,
then it would be +3 to them.
