Weapon power should be based on dice and max damage after slays; if it is only mediocre all the slays in the world don't make it more powerful.

Which standart item it was based on? If that's not very powerful either, then that's perfectly OK, if it was something very powerful then not.

I never checked. But with heal as the activation, it could not be a minor artifact.

I like this (as a swap) because it is so simple:

Cloak of Maloki [1 +12]
Provides immunity to lightning, fire.

Sweet.

StMicah February 10, 2016 02:53

And this just seems wrong....

Long Bow of Tareth (x3) (+6 +15) (+1)

Slays dragons
Branded with poison
Immunity to acid

And it's activation is: makes you very hunger but restores strength and constitution.

The only fair thing about it is the lowish to hit/to dam.

That's a nice midlevel bow. Go kill Smaug and some Bile Wyrms.

Bit of a step up from Halberd of Westernesse

That one is sweet; especially as found with a warrior who can get 6 base blows with it. Now enjoy the rest of your run :D
The activation can be useful too if you dont forget about it the way I usually do.

Based on Dor-Lomin and gets positive power rating with that bad stat, speed etc. penalties?? Something is wrong with randart generator. That should be far in negative rating.

My arbitrary count of points / ability gives that around -400. -700 from speed and stats, +300 from resistances, immunity, slays/brands and big dice & damage.

That's the problem with the randart generator: it took the only negative modifier (-1 to stealth) to generate its pval, overcharged the negative value (since only positive values trigger power/inhibit checks), then overcompensated with a ton of positive stuff to reach the desired power.
