r - the +11 crystal plate armour of Okawaru (worn) {+Inv MR++ SInv Stlth+}.

An incredibly heavy but extremely effective suit of crystalline armour.

Base armour rating: 14       Encumbrance rating: 23
Wearing mundane armour of this type will give the following: 21 AC

It affects your resistance to hostile enchantments.
It lets you see invisible.
It lets you turn invisible.
It makes you more stealthy.

This ancient artefact cannot be changed by magic or mundane means.
You acquired it on level 1 of the Vaults.


It would've been thematically perfect if it was named after Dithmenos :) Still an amazing acquirement!

Bought a lovely toy for my aspiring GnAE^Veh
T - the ring "Lego" (right hand) {rN+ EV+2 Str+2 Int+4 Stlth-}
(You bought it in a shop on level 2 of the Orcish Mines)

Everything is awesome! :D

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Good, but I raise with three weapons of my own:
  Code:
  6912 | D:8      | Identified the +13 battleaxe "Vygoaf" {vamp, Str+4 Dex+3}
                  | (Trog gifted it to you on level 8 of the Dungeon)
  Code:
 17335 | Depths:2 | Identified the +12 double sword "Miafa" {slice, *Contam
                  | rN++ Str+5}
  Code:
 30696 | Depths:3 | Identified the +11 demon whip "Vadgheose" {elec, Fragile
                  | rElec rPois Int-4} (You found it on level 3 of the Depths)
Curiously, all three have an anti-swapping measure. Because everyone would want to swap them out.

I still like to use ranged weapons even when I have a good melee weapon, personally...

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

This looks like a Trog gift:

  Code:
the +9 bardiche "Vameugei" {antimagic, MR+ Stlth+}

But in fact it was an Okawaru gift.

I can see that you are all confused. Since when does Oka gift antimagic? Since when does Oka gift anything good?? What world am I in???

Well... the answer is this: I was an unarmed OgTm, so the gift was only a joke, Xom style.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Got this from Oka on a Chucker:
  Code:
the +9 demon blade of Howuis (weapon) {elec, Fragile Int+3 Dex+3}

I find the weapon extremely elegant, though not overpowered. I could have believed it was a fixedart.
It is powerful enough that I don't want to unwield it (because it is fragile), but that locks me out of blowguns and staves. Possibly a good thing, because my inventory is half-full already with various kinds of javelins and tomahawks :lol:

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

  Code:
the ring "Plog" {rCorr +Fly rC- MR+ Str+4}
   (You found it on level 9 of the Dungeon)


Guarded by fire dragon on D:9 who died to 2 free cards of Nemelex. Almost useless ring despite so many properties because I am an acid draconian with dagger wearing rings of rC+ and MR+ while my last ring is one of flight. It can be useful just if I am going to need second MR+ vs a monster without cold attack.

I like the name, it is really close to "Fast walker" (skarahod) in Russian.

 f - the ring "Ezeghod" {rCorr *Corrode rElec rPois rC+++}
   (You found it on level 4 of the Vaults)   
   
   [ring of resist corrosion]
   
   It renders you almost immune to cold.
   It insulates you from electricity.
   It protects you from poison.
   It may corrode you when you take damage.


rCorr *Corrode

A bit late, but this one from the tournament:
  Code:
 45650 | Shoals:2 | Identified the cursed -11 large shield "Otzer" {+Blink rCorr}
 45650 | Shoals:2 | Noticed Louise

Louise clearly fell for the fancy tile...

In the case of any randart other than FDS, you'd be 100% correct. But Clarity and Slay combined, that's really nice loot.
