Nothing like finding your endgame weapon on d:5
  Code:
a - the +9 lajatang of the Postmodern Ghosts (weapon) {pain, Dex+8}.

A very rare and extremely effective weapon, featuring a pole with half-moon blades at both ends.

Base accuracy: -3  Base damage: 16  Base attack delay: 1.4
This weapon's minimum attack delay (0.7) is reached at skill level 14.
    Your skill: 6.5
    At 100% training you would reach 14.0 in about 2.3 XLs.
    At current training (50%) you will reach 14.0 in about 4.1 XLs.

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

It affects your dexterity (+8).

This weapon falls into the 'Staves' category. It is a two handed weapon.

This ancient artefact cannot be changed by magic or mundane means.
You found it on level 5 of the Dungeon.

Minotaur in Gauntlet on D:12 wielded this, and took most of my health with it (one hit!) until I berserked him:
  Code:
The +11 Spear of Youthful Indiscretion {pain, +Rage rC++ Str-4 Int+2}

It can be evoked to extend its reach.

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

It lets you go berserk.

But I chose the dirtiest path through the gauntlet (neqoxec, chaos spawn; then 2 wizards and 4 imps) to earn my troll this:

  Code:
The +1 hat of Uthwyshreimn {rPois rCorr Slay+5 Stlth-}


Actually I care about the stealth malus, the troll worships Dithmenos. My stealth goes from ++++ down to ++. Still worth it. By the way I had no MR+ gear, luckily neither neqoxec nor wizards see invisible. I ran from them, 50% chance of Paralyse or Banishment is no joke for a XL14 troll.

I had the following dilema:
Playing offline as a Merfolk Ice Elementalist, hybridized to a fairly heavy polearm user. Beyond that, no especially decent weapons, armour or artifact jewelery.
So, this was a tough choice from my first acquisition scroll:

  Code:
a - the +5 bardiche "Golic" {vorpal, rElec rPois rF+ Str+5}
b - an uncursed staff of energy
c - the ring "Weshrixi" {rElec rF+ rN+ Str+3 Int+4 Slay+3}
d - 420 gold
e - 3 rations

I nearly posted this as a question: What should I choose?
My weapons slot was an early halberd of freezing enchanted up to +4.
My rings were Wizardry and Ice.

I was at a point where I needed rF+ and wanted rElec, so that doesn't help.
I have to swap rings for rPois, which is super-annoying, but at least I have that option.
After a pause to think that lasted longer than some people's speed runs, I went for the ring. I'm still not sure if that was the right choice...
I think if the bardiche had had just a few more +'s I would have taken that, but I'll probably hope for the option of a demon trident + buckler of reflection later.

This question is more suited in "advice" area than this topic. I'd hope a mod can split it up.
Have you a dump? At which point of the game you were?
It's a bit different if you were at D:8 before Lair instead of later.

Anyway. That bardiche is kinda okay, because str+5 is like a little more +slay depending on many factors I don't know well. I'd consider it a +7/8 bardiche that helps cast in heavier armor, which is good but nothing extraordinary.
I don't know why you say you needed rf+ because unless you were entering Zot and you had exactly 0 rf+ source, that statement is wrong.

My 2 cents:
I suppose you were at early game (Lair at most). A +4 halberd of freezing is still a good weapon and glaive and bardiche are common so finding a weapon "similar" to that bardiche ins't so hard.
I would have chosen the ring because it would be the better item in the long run - but mostly for the str +3 slay +3 part - while theorically having to problem in the short run to proceed in the game with that halberd.

If for any reason the char was very weak - e.g. terrible god, terrible armor, few\no consumables ecc - I would have chosen the bardiche. Better survive more easily now than bringing a good ring in the grave.

This was from a jewellery shop of Gozag, right after doing lair and mines and before going to the lair branches - kind of five rings in one.
