I'm shocked, shocked, that the dev who rewrote large chunks of the randart code is "finding" amazing randarts.

I expect Yendor came from the list of possible randart names, rather than being created random like "Qyzaump" etc.

TrFi of Oka means I had UC 23 (base 12 + 5 from heroism + 6 from claws) and regular shield without attack penalty (SH is my highest defense of course). I was lazy to do fsim but I suspect my UC was comparable to "min-delayed" greatmace and with finesse I was overkilling anything anyway.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

  Code:
 38656 | Depths:3 | Got distressingly furry shadow dragon scales
 38657 | Depths:3 | Identified the +14 shadow dragon scales of the Lonely Blessings {+Blink Stlth++++} (You found it on level 3 of the Depths)


Found this in a vault guarded by a Tzitzimitl, along with the unrand Ring of Shadows. That plus a boots with Stlth+ gives me two pips short of full Stealth, plus the Umbra. This is on a DDHu with an executioner's axe and a melee focused build. It's perfect timing because I had every intention of just a three rune run but now I'm very much tempted to go for fifteen. Being able to run away and not be chased is pretty nice. EDIT: Ended up not going for fifteen.

EDIT 2: Found this in my GnFE game.

  Code:
the +7 mace "Givai" {drain, *Rage +Rage +Inv +Fly}


It's not so much best or worst as it is funny to picture. "The invisible flying berserker! The only thing you hear is a loud bellow of rage before your head caves in!"

 the +7 demon blade of Cuumuzivy {elec, +Blink rPois Int+2 Stlth-}

This is a very good demon blade, but what is amazing is where I found it. Come on try and guess ! Did you make a guess ? Well guess again, I found it on Lair:1 !!! That's right, floorgod gave me this beauty on Lair - f***ing - 1 !! It was in a vault protected by a few komodos and 3 oklobs, but that's still insanely early !

the +0 buckler of the Dice (worn) {rElec rC+ MR+}

Probably the best buckler I've ever had, especially along with plate of rF+ I am using. Made me switch to morningstar from dire flail.

Edit. Same game
  Code:
 the +8 whip "Snakebite" (weapon) {curare, rPois}
   (You found it on level 1 of the Lair of Beasts)


Cool combo and I am already using M&F.

May I please be forgiven for being a terribly overconfident little Spriggan Enchanter? Pretty please?!

F - the +10 dagger "Ustes" (weapon) {holy, rF+ rN+}

(You bought it in a shop on level 5 of the Dungeon) --- for 133 gold (maybe Gozag helped?)

It has been blessed by the Shining One to cause great damage to the undead
and demons.
It protects you from fire.
It protects you from negative energy.

G - a +7 blowgun
(bought from the same shop on D:5 for 104 gold)


I - the ring "Ukukoall" (right hand) {rC+ rN+ Slay+5 Stlth-}

(You found it on level 6 of the Dungeon)
[ring of loudness]
It affects your accuracy and damage with ranged weapons and melee attacks
(+5).
It protects you from cold.
It protects you from negative energy.
It makes you less stealthy.

  Code:
the -4 cloak "Paduv" {rElec MP-9 Int+6} (You acquired it on level 3 of the Depths)


Thanks acquirement scroll. Dunno what I would've done without you.

Same game, found in this pretty cool vault of a fortress of giants separated from the rest of the dungeon by lava. Since I am GrEE it was no trouble to reach:

  Code:
amulet of Quarrel {Reflect +Inv SH+5}


It has saved my bacon loads of times since I found it. I dunno it feels like it's an unrand but I couldn't find it in any lists.

then it's a randart. If it is a custom text, then it's an unrand.

I really didn't need it (+9 antimagic evenigstar is an excellent weapon too and I have javelins at min delay) but these days I just want to play pressing tab ;)

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

I hear ya Sandman.

  Code:
the +0 pair of boots of Okawaru's Displeasure {rPois} (Okawaru gifted it to you on level 3 of the Vaults)

I think Okawaru was upset that I haven't used a single one of his god gifts all game. (Because they've all sucked like woah.)

Same game, both from scrolls of acquirement that were surprisingly nice for once:

  Code:
the +8 eveningstar of Gluttony {elec, rN+ Int+4} (You acquired it on level 6 of the Lair of Beasts)
the amulet "Guzirr" {Gourm MP+9 Str+5} (You acquired it on level 3 of the Elven Halls)


Seriously like, so much better. Although that amulet isn't the BEST ever, but it's better than any others I'd found all game. Including the undrand Amulet of the Air. (I'd use it if it didn't have bloody inaccuracy...)

From a game I'm just spectating:
the ring of Nyelimim {rElec rPois rF+ rN+ Dex+5}

Amazingly, this seems to be not good enough (only maybe as a swap when rElec is needed), because:
the ring of Jigrotto {rPois rN++ AC+5 Str+2 Dex+4}
the ring of Zenuog {MR+++ EV+2}

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

  Code:
 W - the +6 long sword "Best" (weapon) {slice, *Noise Str+8 Int+10 Dex-4}

Possibly the Best weapon so far for my long-blade-wielding spell-caster...

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Playing a DEFE, now at level 15, clearing out the mines. This is what I found in the shops:

  Code:
the cursed scarf "Laveten" {INT+5 SInv}
the +9 quarterstaff of misery {speed rN+ Str+4}


The scarf came for 355 bucks, the staff for slightly above 1000. And I have my staves skill already trained up to 9, as I was hoping for a good elemental staff, which I did not find so far. I'm certainly not going to do anything about the curse on the scarf.

The labyrinth, also found on Orc 2, gave me pearl dragon scales on top of everything else. I am dearly tempted to invest some points into armour to make my glass cannon a lot less brittle.

Edit: I should stop bragging here about my equipment. Whenever I do that, I die within a few hundred turns. This time I got splattered by my own ghost on entering the Swamp, with a well-placed Iron Shot.

Probably the best buckler I've ever had, especially along with plate of rF+ I am using. Made me switch to morningstar from dire flail.



IMO this is trash and I would only carry it around as a swap for ice cave or hex uniques.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Bucklers are used to get useful resists and here I got the most important one (mr), the most rare one (elec) and one of two most comfortable (for simulacra and freezing clouds). Slaying and rf would be nice too of course.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

  Code:
 T - Sif Muna's Almanac of Dhcmrlchtdj
   (You found it on level 10 of the Dungeon)   
   
    Spells                             Type                      Level
    a - Static Discharge             Conjuration/Air               3
    b - Summon Ice Beast             Ice/Summoning                 4

I just like it because of the name... Note I'm not *worshipping* Sif, this is just sitting on the floor.
