In ToME...

- The Cloak of Arwen. Surprisingly, it was cursed.

- Various items "of Moron", usually with horrible curses, have turned up several times.

- When I was messing with TFork, I once found a randart meteor hammer with all three *slays* and several brands. It was so stupidly effective that I was convinced to nerf chain weapons majorly.

I thought I'd mentioned this one already here, but apparently I haven't. So let's fix that.
Code:

The Mattock 'Dildo' (1d8) (+8,+13)
----------------------------------
+4 constitution, tunneling.
Provides resistance to fear, nether.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.


Min Level 21, Max Level 95, Generation chance 22, 25.0 lbs

... Wow. :eek:

Okay, this has to be my favourite pair of gauntlets ever. To make it even better, rBlind and rConf just happened to be my two remaining gaping resistance holes.

Code:

The Set of Gauntlets of Gormendir [3, +10] (+2)
(lying on the floor at 1600 feet (level 32))

+2 wisdom, charisma, speed.
Provides resistance to blindness, confusion.
Grants telepathy.

When activated, it heals you a really large amount (35% of max HP, minimum
300HP), heals cut damage, and cures stunning, poisoning, blindness, and
confusion.
Takes 117 to 144 turns to recharge at your current speed.
Your chance of success is 87.9%

I had a pair of sandals with +8 speed, and activate for CCW. It was memorable because when I found them, I figured I could crack a Vault I found at dlvl 35. I cracked it, and figured that Great wyrm of thunder won't breathe if I step back to teleport it and the queen ant behind it.

I ended up with -258 hp? I forgot the golden rule, if it can go wrong, it will.

I guess that's about as far as RNG can go in creating ultimate weapon. Combined with +3 blows Palantir it's just plain scary.

Aique is apparently the elven word for 'Norris'.

m attribute.

Wow, 10 blows a round. Is that the max or can it go even higher?

Derakon December 2, 2010 15:29

The theoretical maximum would probably be 6 native blows for a warrior, and +3 blows on every item. In practice this won't happen; 10 is ludicrously high.

10 blows itself is not so ludicrous, except that one happens to be MoD which is too heavy for 6 blows, so it is 5+2+3 = 10, instead of 6+2+3=11.

You can get 9 blows with standard artifacts too: 6 from warrior, 2 from weapon and one from shield. I have currently MoD of Fury +2 which reaches 8.2 blows (fractional blows in nightlies). I have seen several lighter +2 blows weapons but none of them has reached the same damage...yet.

What makes that randart enormously powerful is that 9d8 dice combined with *slay* for all three major groups. Basically 45d8 = 202.5 from dice alone against all major enemies + criticals + other boosts.
