Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Now if I could acquire a whole bunch of gold again after blowing some on mediocre white plate and the like...

The ring "Kaipsupp" {+Blink, rF+, +6 Slay} (Elf:2 shop for a cool 2317 gold)

Already found:

The ring of Emep {rC+ rF+ EV-4 Dex+4 Slay+3}
(The Dex bonus reduces the EV penalty on my present Str 23, Armor 16 gargoyle in fire dragon armor to 2 out of 15 EV lost... Not bad for a backup item with two resists, already have two slay rings and two pips of rF/rC otherwise)

B - +7 crystal plate armour of Resilience {rC+++ rCorr Dex-3 Stlth+}
F - amulet of Relativism {Faith MR+ Str+7}
G - ring of the Firefly {rElec rN+ AC+3}
W - ring of Waeg {rElec rF+ MR+ Str+4 Slay+3}


Had all of these on the same character, along with the axe "Bingo" mentioned before. A complete package of resistances, AC, and enormous damage output.

A special mention also goes to this shield: Q - -2 shield of Proximity {Slay+4}. I almost passed it up because of its -2 enchantment, but the slaying bonus made it stronger than any other shield I ever found.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

15 Rune Game got me

+8 chain mail of Autumn {*Corrode Regen+ Dex+10}

+14 crystal plate armour of the Garden {rF+ rC+ Str+2}

the amulet "Coyneust" {Spirit Fragile rN+ Slay+2}

amulet "Qommiri" {rElec Regen+ Slay+4 Stlth-}

+7 battleaxe of Evisceration {speed, rElec rC+ Stlth+}

+9 morningstar of Enolon {crush, rElec rF+ rC+ Dex-5}

I used the Battleaxe till I was able to make a +9 Executioners axe of Holy Wrath.
The Chain Mail was surprisingly good
It lasted all the way till I found the Armor of the Dragon King unrand that lasted all of 7 steps till I found the Crystal Plate. The Fragile Amulet lasted a small number of turns till I got the better Regen Slay Amulet and the morningstar was just picked up because it looked neat.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Speaking of good chain...

  Code:
the +8 chain mail of Trial and Error (worn) {rElec rF++ Dex-5}.


I am quite seriously considering using this throughout the rest of the game. I found it lying about on the seventh level of the dungeon. It's true that chain is overshadowed by a number of other armors in terms of physical defensive vaulue, but at +8 it is still pretty sound in that regard, and it was extremely effective in the early game. The resistances are both very useful as well, particularly in Zot.

I obtained this axe in the same game:

  Code:
the +10 battleaxe "Neveck" {antimagic, Dex+3}


This would very probably have been my weapon of choice, were it not for finding a vampiric broad axe soon after picking it up.

I know the first one is an unrand, and that this collection isn't the most amazing overall for later on in the game (esp. compared to some of these posts), but these were found on L:1, D:6 (shop), and L:6 respectively on a M&F DsGl with a sacrificed hand (done prior to seeing any of them), and man have they made this run so far.

Also, I don't think I ever got to play with Snakebite before, it's really fun.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

My demigod Archer/Transmuter found the amulet of Matham {Reflect +Blink Slay+2 Shield+5} in the Lair

As an aside, my Demonspawn yesterday found +2 boots of speed in a shop. The first time I ever saw them in-game. He developed the talons mutation :(

b - ring of Xom's Bemusement {rF+ rC+ MR- Dex+3 Slay+6}

Pretty fitting ring for Xom.

That was a fancy game too. A very early +9 quickblade decided weapon choice for me, and with +10 slaying on top of berserk nothing really stood a chance. Enchanted up a longbow as backup but never felt the need to use it or TSO's angels.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

I've got a very lucky ghoul with these highlights:

  Code:
+11 crystal plate armour of Lesser Demons {rC+ MR++ Int-3}
ring of the Cast Vote {rF++ MR++ Slay+3 SInv}
+2 cloak of Amorality {Dex+5 Slay+3 SInv}


I found the CPA in Orc:1. Overall +11 slaying. tabtabtabtab :)

I know the first one is an unrand, and that this collection isn't the most amazing overall for later on in the game (esp. compared to some of these posts

The demon whip is kinda meh I guess (unless you need rElec) but the combo of melee curare and that eveningstar is friggin' great.
I am not a very good player. My mouth is a foul pit of LIES. KNOW THIS.

f - the ring "Micanes" (left scythe-like blade) {rPois rF+ rN+ MP+9 Slay+6}

It even rolled the max for slaying, so kind. This is also in a game where I have the unrand sniper crossbow, so...yeah. I am a gnoll, so I'm probably never reaching min delay on that, but even as a really slow weapon, the insane damage and never miss is very nice...

Useless on heavy armor characters. Useless on light armor characters. What more could you ask for?
