My Necromancer covets your arkenstone

All the artifact lights they find hurts their spell casting abilities

There are some other nice aspects to it, and some other not so nice aspects...

Code:

l) the Arkenstone of Gelwilda <+3, +5, +2, -3> (charging) {cursed}
    Taken from a chest found at 2550 feet (level 51)
   
    It paralyses you every now and then.
    It poisons you from time to time.
    +3 wisdom.
    +5 searching skill.
    +2 infravision.
    -3 light.
    Provides immunity to Fire.
    Provides resistance to Nexus, Chaos.
    Cannot be harmed by Fire.
    Feather Falling.  Prevents teleportation. 
    Intensity -3 light.
   
    When activated, it lights and maps the entire level, sensing
    objects.
    Takes 107 to 210 turns to recharge at your current speed.
    Your chance of success is 94.7%

Thats a sweet ring. Most fighter types want damage and couldnt care less about int; youre not supposed to find this as a necromancer.

sffp December 11, 2022 18:13

I was close enough to endgame that the Con was more important to Int (I was already maxed out on Int) But it was worth 100+ HP

Going into the level I was wearing a ring of CON +6 and a ring of Speed +11
Leaving I had to artifaces that added up to the same :)

prevents teleportation ...

So, err, when my latest @ died an unfortunate death, I looked at the randarts and saw this:

the Mace of Disruption 'Celdach' (16d8) (+17,+28) <+2, +3>
----------------------------------------------------------
A giant's weapon, enchanted with shattering power that breaks bones, bodies,
and spirit.

+2 intelligence.
+3 wisdom.
+3 constitution.
+2 extra blows.
Slays dragons (powerfully), demons (powerfully), undead.
Branded with weak fire.
Provides resistance to Acid, Poison, Light, Dark, Nether.
Provides protection from fear.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Speeds regeneration. Grants the ability to see invisible things. Blessed by
the gods (combat bonuses for holy casters).


Min Level 100, Max Level 127, Generation chance 1, Power 1056, 40.0 lbs
Random hafted of power 1056.

I guess Ill have to make another paladin now, though this thing is not going to turn up early.

That's got to be a record - far more powerful than Grond even!

This damage output looks incredible even for more high power variants like Zangband branches.

Remember that you can remove curses with scrolls, you should check what power these have to see if you can remove them.

I have to question Carindore's personal hygiene if, long after his boots have become legendary, they can be used to initiate a poison gas attack.


the Pair of Leather Boots of Carindore [2,+20]
----------------------------------------------
These are calf-high boots of flexible leather, laced from heel to calf.

Provides resistance to Dark.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Feather Falling. Speeds regeneration.

When activated, it fires a ball of poison gas with radius 3, dealing 12 damage
at the centre, which your device skill increases by 20% for an average of 14.4
damage.
