Memorable ego items
 
I saw this in a recent ladder post (no-artifact game):
Power Dragon Scale Mail (Dwarven) (-3) [60,+42] <+2,+3>
http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=18782

and I found a similar thing today with Balance DSM (Dwarven) <+1,+2> but I didn't need it. Instead, I am amazed to have just found:

a Sling of Buckland (+18,+26) <+2,+4>
That is comparable to a Ranger with Bard, except for the unfortunate lack of Holy Might ammo. I didn't realize it was even possible to get +26 on Buckland.

Thats a crazy sling. I believe the damage enchantment is something like a spread around a value proportional to depth, but I am sure someone here can tell you exactly.

I once had 2 stacking dwarven PDSMs....unfortunately I cant find the dump anymore :(

I dimly recall that if the game passes the "okay, make an artifact" check but then fails to find an artifact it can make, then it will supercharge the bonuses on the ego-item it creates instead. Maybe that's what happened here?

EDIT: with 1d3 unenchanted iron shots and that sling, you'd be doing 112 average damage per shot, 336 average per round. If the shots were +12, then you'd be doing 480 average per round instead. If they were +12 and Slay Evil, then it'd be 600/round. That's crazy.

I was using Slay Evil Mithril shot (2d4) (+14,+12) for 820 damage/turn for a good portion of the fight. I had a stack of Rounded Pebbles and Iron shot slay evil too--both of those did over 700 damage/turn. Unfortunately, there's no Holy Might mithril shot. :/

However, with normal mithril shot (+13,+14), the damage is 572/turn, so I can't complain!

In my current game, I finally found a crossbow that actually does real damage:
b) A Heavy Crossbow of the Nazgul (x4) (+20,+22)

What version do you play? There are clearly mithril shots of holy might in the version I play...

I have seen holy might mithril shots but they are extremly rare. On a good run, you can get 2-3 stacks of arrows or bolts, but I have never had more than 1 stack of shots, most of the time none at all.

Plus 1, here. Very rare, but when you have them and a great buckland sling, nothing compares. Morgoth is swiss cheese filled with holes and dead before he knows what happened! :D

Maybe we should rename sling of bucklands to ... of Gatling?
