How picky are treasure troves?

So, I've got a treasure trove asking for +5, +6 demon whip. I also have a +2, +2 vampiric demon whip and lots of dusty scrolls of enchant weapon. However, I'm not sure whether that trove will accept an ego demon whip (if I enchant it properly) and I wouldn't like to waste my scrolls checking if it turns out it won't.

You just need to have the same base item type, with enchantment plusses at least equal to the ones asked.

If he is a Maces & Flails user a +9 Demon Whip of Electrocution would be quite valuable.

Spoiler: bring a wand of disintegration and/or digging in with you. And/or the dig spell. And a scroll of recharging, just in case.

Since when do troves require you to dig to get to the treasure?

I have a trove asking for 2 potions of cure mutation. I currently do not have Rmut, and 2 two potions of cure mutation.

Could this be worth it?

(it also gives you a wand of digging for free so whatever)


First time I got that trove, the wand had 2 charges.

Re: How picky are treasure troves?

Well, I've had a simple room full of rings, including a few rather splendid randarts. It was on a Long Blade-user, so I didn't care about the whip. A rather rewarding encounter.

It could be, but I have definitely been disappointed in the results before, getting stuff that was either useless or unexceptional.

If I thought my risk of mutation was low (3 runer and something to protect against summoned neqoxecs) I'd go for it. Otherwise I'd wait till I had a spare.
