Wow. Seems like a throwing hammer shouldn't be able to get all those bonuses that only apply when wielded.

14d8 is highest base damage I have seen. Is there a cap ?

Slay evil owing to the paldin spell.

Pete Mack November 6, 2021 14:56

About the dice cap? Clearly there is no hard cap. What I dont understand is how that got generated. It has way more power than any "non-special" artifact in the game.

Estie November 6, 2021 15:08

Power is listed as 612; Deathwreaker has 616. In the same set is also a quarterstaff with power 661 (which I didnt find):

the Quarterstaff 'Mirim' (3d9) (+15,+31) <+3, +4, +2, +6, +1>

Branded with cold.
Provides resistance to Acid, Sound, Shards, Disenchantment.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Sustains constitution.
Grants the ability to see invisible things.

When activated, it breathes a cone of fire with width 20 degrees, dealing 200
damage at the source.
Takes 164 to 240 turns to recharge.
Your chance of success is 30.3%


Min Level 80, Max Level 127, Generation chance 1, Power 661, 15.0 lbs
Random hafted of power 661.

Estie November 6, 2021 15:25

I think the main reason Deathwreaker has the same power value as the 14d8 mace is that slay evil is considered about the same as 2x base dice ?

In which case it is mostly the paladin spell that messes up.

And of course, there are the other slays/brands.

Pete Mack November 6, 2021 15:54

But 14d8 dominates 7d8 with Slay Evil. Yeah, there's no +5 STR and fire immunity, but those are negligible compared to the insane damage.

Estie November 6, 2021 16:12

Yeah, so slay evil is valued too highly.
