FAA randart; actually kind of hard to fit in because speed is hard to accumulate, but maybe with two good rings?

Worst level ever

Got 'something worthwhile' feeling on DL18. Good! Early artifact!
Turned out to be this:

Cloack 'Eluil' [1, -14] <-4> {cursed}:
Found on the floor at 900 feet.

It makes you vulnerable to fire but resistant to cold
It paralyses you every now and then.
-4 Intelligence
Feather falling

Activates for 6d8 frost bolt

Later, found a chest. Hopefully there is at least something useful inside.
A ring! Nice!... Or not:

Band of Vathimbar [-22] {cursed}

It periodically turns your skin to stone
It paralyses you every now and then.

Sustains strength, constitution.
Aggravates creatures nearby.

I dunno. I still think Beruthiel and Mormegil are worse. It'd be very hard to top -10 speed.

Weapons with -3EA.

Yeah, some individual artifacts are worse but it was kind of 'funny' finding 2 dismal things in a row. Besides, unless you uncurse it, that ring is rather complete: It paralyses you, invites everyone to come and hit you and with -22 AC makes sure nobody misses you. And if you wear that cloak, you might be just stupid enough to put it on.

Anyway, bit later RNG gods turned friendlier:

I present this lovely suit of armor for consideration in the truly awful category.

Code:

n) the Hard Leather Armour of Unulos (-1) [16,-16] <-5> {cursed}
    Dropped by Golfimbul, the Hill Orc Chief at 900 feet (level 18)
   
    It makes you vulnerable to fire attacks, but resistant to cold.
    It occasionally makes a loud noise.
    -5 searching skill.
    Provides protection from fear.
    Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
    Prevents paralysis.  Prevents teleportation.  Drains experience.

And this amazing, ridiculous shovel...

Code:

the Shovel 'Manfaere' (1d2) (+15,+15) [+19] <+3, +4, +2, +1>
    Dropped by Bullroarer the Hobbit at 450 feet (level 9)
   
    +3 stealth.
    +4 tunneling.
    +2 speed.
    +1 attack speed.
    +1 light.
    Slays dragons (powerfully), demons (powerfully), orcs, animals,
    evil creatures.
    Branded with weak lightning.
    Provides resistance to Acid, Lightning, Shards, Nether.
    Feather Falling.  Blessed by the gods (combat bonuses for holy
    casters). 
   
    Combat info:
    3.0 blows/round.
    With +2 STR and +0 DEX you would get 3.3 blows
    With +0 STR and +1 DEX you would get 3.3 blows
    Average damage/round: 80.7 vs dragons and demons, 70.8 vs orcs, 66
    vs animals, evil creatures, and creatures not resistant to
    lightning, and 60.9 vs. others.

One of the standard challenge games is killing Morgoth with a shovel. You are well on your way....
