Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Best store ever? At the end of Orc:
Welcome to Mery's Jewellery Emporium! What would you like to do?
a - 618 gold the amulet of the Air {Inacc +Fly rElec EV+5 RMsl}
b - 273 gold a +3 ring of protection (unknown)
c - 390 gold an uncursed amulet of guardian spirit (unknown)
d - 990 gold the ring "Jaheups" {Wiz rPois rF++ rC++}
e - 390 gold an uncursed amulet of magic regeneration
f - 744 gold the amulet "Ugi Oqon" {RegenMP rPois rN+ MR+ Str+3}

h - 260 gold an uncursed ring of positive energy (unknown)
i - 260 gold an uncursed ring of resist corrosion

And died 2 minutes later before saving up enough money. :-(
Got complacent lobbing fireballs at a swimming frost giant, thinking the steam would finish him quickly. About 6 fireballs later, I learned that if you are flying over water, then bolt of cold can generate freezing clouds, which will kill you far faster. Damn.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Something useful from the Abyss :lol:

a - the +3 scimitar of Exquisite Death (weapon) {pain, rPois rF+ rN+}
(You found it on level 2 of the Abyss)

In the hands of one skilled in necromantic magic, it inflicts extra damage
on living creatures.

It protects you from fire.
It protects you from poison.
It protects you from negative energy.

This has been awesome for a gnoll in Snake!

  Code:
b - the +12 longbow of Baojuwn (weapon) {speed, rElec rN+ Dex-2}

This was a Trog gift, at 0 bows skill, in Orc.

The boss later gifted me Piercer, and it seems kinda mediocre compared to this :D

Hmmm... I've never used harm so I don't really know what to think of it. Standard troll of oka wearing faith, I have already a (storm dragon) armour thus can acquire jewellery, with that amulet I'd have +10 slaying.

thoughts?

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

The +10 giant club "Ipsal" (weapon) {crush, rElec rC+ Dex+2}
(Trog gifted it to you on level 5 of the Lair of Beasts)

It inflicts extra damage upon your enemies.

It affects your dexterity (+2).
It protects you from cold.
It insulates you from electricity.

... Happy mid-game Ogre, so far!

Bit late? But... Personally I would probably try it, given you have heavy armor and it'd be a whole lot of slaying. Whether or not to start using it in a place like Snake is kinda a tossup, though. It's kind of "double all your bets."

It would feel safest if you have some decent ranged ability? (Would be great with lots of giant rocks or javelins, which Oka should give sooner or later - and particularly if you've trained up Throwing.) And maybe if you have some other solid MR as well. Getting constricted or paralyzed with it for long on the other hand is obviously, a bad thing.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Stupid question from non-native English speaker: is word "outrage" completely unrelated to word "rage"?

Edit. Stupid question indeed. When one cannot keep calm and rage is out, we can get an outrage.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

It's a funny case. Both are actually French words. Rage comes from "rabies". Outrage comes from "outre", which comes from "ultra" = beyond, "ultraticum" being something by which someone oversteps his boundaries. So they actually aren't related.
I've never heard "outrage" meaning "indignation" outside of English, in Italian (oltraggio) and French it means an insult or grave offence, especially to someone's honour.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Since this is probably a better thread to post this than where I posted it yesterday...

I decided to request a shop from Gozag on my MuMo before going for my first rune, and managed to buy this:

  Code:
C - +14 fire dragon scales of Caimn {rF++ rC- rCorr}


This is a hexer-stabber-ice mage hybrid of sorts BTW, who also found this early on:

  Code:
a - +9 dagger {protect, *Rage Str+3 Dex+3}
If I play online, I do so under the screenname Marenglen.

Identified the +13 plate armour of the Echidna {rElec rC+ Regen+ Str-5} (You acquired it on level 3 of the Crypt)


Now I have to figure out if there's any hope my Tengu blaster caster with 17 strength (before equipping the armor) can ever use this and still cast high-level spells with any decent failrate... Doesn't look too likely right now, sadly. There isn't even any Wizardry gear in this game yet that I've found...

 n - the +2 helmet of Grottiness (worn) {+Fly Str+4 Int-4 Dex+8}
   (You bought it in a shop on level 2 of the Orcish Mines)


In my MfSk run. Between the helmet and amulet I have a net +4/2/6 to my stats, spirit (which freed up my cloak slot, so that -2 dex is balanced even further by getting a +2 cloak), and maxed rN for kicks.

A shop on Orc:1 had this
  Code:
k - the ring "Qoom" (right hand) {+Inv rElec rF++ rC+ Str+3 Dex+4}

It almost spells doom right there, so I was "logically" afraid of dying a horrible and stupid death if I bought it, but I did overcome my fears and got it.

  Code:
+8 great mace "Yrghoik" {speed, Str+9 Int+3}


the bad: the guy is an Ogre so at some point he'll abandon that sweet stick

the weird: same guy bought the cloak of thief on D:15 for mere 361 gold coin (go base type on shop, go!)


Make sure to run fsim. I suspect the great mace can be better than any GSC unless the latter has speed too. Don't forget Str+9 is kind of extra slaying which will be even better with speed brand.

Why do both of those FSims have the same avSpeed/AvTime, are you sure you fSimmed the right weapon?

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

O - ring "Guxaurad" {rC++ rN+ MR+ Dex+2 SInv}
F - ring "Xeap" {rPois AC+3 Str+7 Dex-2}


Rings of easy inventory management. Kinda silly finding these on a Qazlal run, though I'm sure not complaining about the AC/Str ring.

Yup I fsimmed something wrong, thanks for your correction. I'd say the two weapons are kinda equivalent in most realistic situation (gsc hit harder so is better against high AC target, great mace hit faster so probably it's better against high EV target).

great mace

  Code:
           AvHitDam | MaxDam | Accuracy | AvDam | AvTime | AvSpeed | AvEffDam
Attacking:     23,6 |    102 |      92% |  21,8 |    47  |  2,15 |     46,5
Defending:     21,4 |     45 |      77% |  16,6 |   100  |  1,00 |     16,6


+9 flaming gsc
  Code:
           AvHitDam | MaxDam | Accuracy | AvDam | AvTime | AvSpeed | AvEffDam
Attacking:     34,1 |    155 |      92% |  31,5 |    70  |  1,43 |     45,0
Defending:     21,6 |     45 |      77% |  16,6 |   100  |  1,00 |     16,6

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

S - +22 crystal plate armor of Padedip {rC- MR+ Regen+ rCorr}


Pretty sure this is the best armor I have ever (or will ever) see. From a scroll of acquirement, no less.
