I'm having a quite lucky (3.1.2) game with regards to randarts right now, this one stands out in particular:

Quote:

g) The Bronze Dragon Scale Mail 'Celwil' (-2) [18,+17] (+6)
+6 constitution, speed.
Provides immunity to cold.
Provides resistance to acid, lightning, fire, fear, dark,
blindness, confusion.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Sustains dexterity.
Feather Falling. Prevents paralysis.
This one is also pretty nifty combined with a ring of acid:

Quote:

a) The Katana of Beruneth (9d5) (+6,+19) (+7)
+7 speed.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Blessed by the gods.

Combat info:
5 blows/round.
This weapon may benefit from one or more off-weapon brands or slays.
Average damage/hit: 168.3 vs. creatures not resistant to acid, and
80.8 vs. others.

Mine isn't a randart. SoS+2 to attacks is deadly with ring of acid.

This is the best artifact I've ever seen, let alone found:

The Mithril Plate Mail of Athorith (+11,+15) [60,+26] <+4>

+4 strength, intelligence, wisdom, dexterity, constitution,
charisma, stealth, speed.

Provides resistance to acid, lightning, poison, light, dark,
sound, nether, disenchantment.
Provides protection from fear, blindness, confusion.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Speeds regeneration. Prevents paralysis. Sustains your life
force. Grants telepathy.

When activated, it heals 500 hit points, heals cut damage, and
cures stunning.

Bah, it lacks see invisible. ;-P

Seriously, that is pretty much perfect randart. Immunities to fire and cold, basic4 + poison + confusion + sound + disenchantment + blindness + telepathy + FA + regen + healing activation + stat-bonuses + speed + combat bonuses.

It really lacks only see-inv from main features. Maybe rChaos could count as another.

Derakon February 24, 2011 01:48

Yeah, that's ridiculous. About as no-brainer an artifact as you can get. What's it based off of? I don't think even the Rings of Power get rated that highly.

The immunities are great, but you can get the rest covered with egos, especially now that you can find chaos DSM of permanence. I'm not impressed. Here is a pair of randarts from my wife's current game that have finalized my decision to consider randarts as desrving of being in the cheat options list.

I'd take this elfstone in preference to fizzix's randart.

Code:

e) The Elfstone 'Kelen' (+6,+5) (+3) {Evil,LGT,nx,FA}
    Dropped by a Nightcrawler at 3900 feet (level 78).
   
    +3 charisma.
    It causes your melee attacks to slay evil creatures.
    Provides immunity to lightning.
    Provides resistance to acid, nexus.
    Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
    Prevents paralysis. 
   
    When aimed, it shoots a large ball of one of the base elements for
    120-200 damage.
    Takes 392 to 480 turns to recharge at your current speed.
    Your chance of success is 90.4%
   
f) The Palantir of Halador (+3) {+3Str/Int,*undead,dench}
    Dropped by a Great Hell Wyrm at 4050 feet (level 81).
   
    +3 strength, intelligence, wisdom, charisma.
    It causes your melee attacks to *slay* undead.
    Provides resistance to disenchantment.
    Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
   
    When activated, it maps the entire level and detects nearby
    objects, traps, doors, and stairs.
    Takes 204 to 400 turns to recharge at your current speed.
    Your chance of success is 87.5%
   
    Radius 4 light.

Even BalanceDSM of permanence doesn't come close to that one. +4 to all stats and speed? Combat bonuses? Telepathy + confusion & blindness resists? Healing activation with 97% success?

*slay* undead is great from lightsource, but does it really compete with that armor? All those from single source frees up so many slots for free tweaking any way you want that I doubt that I would even think using that lightsource instead of that.

Derakon February 24, 2011 04:38

I'm with Timo here. Both artifacts are gamebreakers at some level, but the body armor gives way more versatility than the lightsource does. Besides, ISTR thata off-weapon brands/slays have been made much harder to get in the nightlies, so your examples shouldn't happen any more. At the very least, of the randarts I've found with off-weapon slays, both were for trolls and had nothing else useful on them...

When I finish, I'll definitely generate spoilers. I'm curious to see if the power rating got borked somehow. Unfortunately, that won't actually tell you what it's based off of...
