If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Which makes me think of a heron (as in the bird) blinking.

You finish putting on the +14 crystal plate armour of Narcissism {Str+7}.


With the +7 strength I was able to cast Iron Shot in it with my HaEE with a little bit of training.

Unfortunately on a VSVM who already invested a lot in magic.
Maybe I'll be able to use it by the end of Zot :(

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Both of these were generated in the same game (bcrawl, if that matters):
  Code:
the +12 crystal plate armour "Zescheg" (worn) {+Inv rF++ Int-4 SInv}
(You acquired it on level 2 of the Swamp)   

  Code:
the +7 pearl dragon scales "Ymurah" {rC++ rN+ Regen+ Dex-5}
(You took it off a spriggan defender on level 3 of the Depths)   


What makes the crystal plate armour even better is that the way I've build my character I can wear it and still have positive stealth.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

The ring of Entrepreneurial Spirit {MP +9, Str -4 Int +7 Dex +2}


Acquired this off a scroll on D:2 on a MiIE. Yes, a Minotaur Ice Elementalist... been trying really hard to keep spellcasters alive so I thought I'd try a beefy race and then train them to be nothing but a spellcaster. It's, uh, very slow going. :lol:

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

  Code:
n - the ring of Seriskef (left hand) {rF+ rN+ Int+6 Slay+5}
   (You found it on level 3 of the Dungeon)   
   
   [ring of intelligence]
   
   Int:       It affects your intelligence (+6).
   Slay:      It affects your accuracy & damage with ranged weapons and melee
   (+5).
   rF:        It protects you from fire.
   rN:        It protects you from negative energy.


Not just happy that I found this thing, I'm so happy I found it so early in the game, with my poor squishy little Spriggan, which wants to find its luck as an Ice Elementalist. Now it can sit in its Frozen Rampart Lair and actually do something against the bad ones who make it through to its sensitive skin.

Edit: It didn't help, I died three minutes later. I just can't win with a Spriggan, even with the best of Artifact rings.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

A big ring with lots of power gems to give good resistance but the weight makes you clumsy

the ring of Jeumemeh {rElec rPois MR+++ rCorr Slay-2}

Found it on level 2 of the Depths, in a vualt. First rElec found i could use

   (Okawaru gifted it to you on level 5 of the Lair of Beasts)
(As expected, I soon died of hubris)

I don't expect to remove that ring at any point... (playing a Palentonga Cinder Acolyte of Ignis).

  Code:
the ring of Foheschee {Wiz, Will++, Int+6, Dex-2}


It's like 2x rings of magic res + ring of Wiz + ring of Int+6 in ONE RING

Wrath moth berserked me, slow after berserk ended... should have blinked/hasted/cast few spells to clear screen, instead I went to stairs... underestimated the situation, as usual.
