"Accidental Termination" is a great name though "Whoops, sorry about that, you're dead!"

Heh, beaten to reporting my great artifact! I already had 16 polearms skill and this decent halberd when I found it (on Snake 1):
  Code:
the +9 halberd "Vufiti Mehe" {elec, rC+ rN+ MR+ Stlth+}


but I couldn't resist IDing it when I found it, then couldn't resist starting from scratch with long blades when I saw how good it was! Nicely accessorised with the Gauntlets of War and Cloak of the Thief.

Not that exceptional, but it's so nice to get something like this on a MiFi^Oka:

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

On a recent run with some nonsense like 5 caustic shrikes on depths 1, I got equally nonsense-good weapons in a 3 rune:

the +11 hand crossbow of Summertime {penet, rF+ MR+ Int+5}
(You found it on level 10 of the Dungeon)

the +11 bardiche of Offence (weapon) {freeze, +Fly rPois Str+2}
(Okawaru gifted it to you on level 4 of the Lair of Beasts)

the amulet "Xaquekk" (around neck) {Reflect rC+ Dex+4 Slay+5 SH+3}
(You bought it in a shop on level 4 of the Shoals)

+1 cloak of the Beginning {rPois Slay+3}

The cloak by itself is good, but not amazing. Getting all of these before 3rd rune, and the two weapons before any rune was incredible. Xbow requiring 10 skill to get mindelay for that kind of production was crazy. Since this was a cosplay challenge with shields disallowed the 1h vs 2h "anti-synergy" wasn't an issue, though with stuff this good I'd not worry about it anyway. Even the skill-prohibitive bardiche was usable before end game thanks to okawaru.

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

Goratrix wrote:+6 is the limit for the normal blue items, not for artifacts. So unrandarts like the Ring of Phasing, which have no unique properite, can be duplicated by a randart.
EV hasn't been a randart property since version 0.5. Even when it was, it was capped at +7 and couldn't appear on a ring of evasion, so a +8 EV randart was impossible even back then.

 S - the +5 pair of boots of Ununkub {+Blink Str+4}

Re: Best/Worst Artifacts

On a Demonspawn Fire Elementalist, playing as a hybrid. Already using evocations as I had found a few useful wands and a cloak of invisibility.
I thought these were quite good for before my first rune:
  Code:
F - the ring "Hauntouj" (right hand) {*Slow +Inv rN+ Str+6 Slay+4}.
You found it on level 2 of the Spider Nest.

P - the ring "Luekuoku" (left hand) {Fire *Slow +Blink Int+5 Slay+5}.
You found it in a Gauntlet.

l - the +1 scale mail of Immorality {rCorr MP+9 Dex-3 Slay+5}.
You bought it in a shop on level 11 of the Dungeon.
