Some Wow items from a 9-9 2800 ft vault
 
Minor upgrade to my Ring of Resist Poison:

c) the Band 'Eolion' <+2, +5, +6, +3>
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 2800 feet (level 56)

+2 strength.
+5 intelligence.
+6 dexterity.
+3 shooting speed.

Provides protection from confusion.
Cannot be harmed by Lightning.
Feather Falling. Prevents paralysis.

Your chance of success is 93.9%

Slightly better than my Elven Armor rBase rShards:

g) Power Dragon Scale Mail (-3) [60,+16] (charging)
Found lying on the floor at 2800 feet (level 56)

Note that +3 shooting speed is now actually +30% so that's not that "wow" anymore...

Wouldn't that be the equivalent to a level 30 ranger? That's fairly wow. Coupled with a sling of power and some branded ammo then it's a very powerful boost.

+3 shooting speed is very nice to have in a ring, playing a ranger.
However, compared to old shooting speed, +3 shots per turn, this is barely a noticeable bonus :D

Well - I had this:

b) the Heavy Crossbow 'Arost' (x6) (+13,+21) <+1, +4, +2>
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 2400 feet (level 48)

+1 strength.
+4 infravision.
+2 shooting power.
+1 light.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Prevents paralysis.

So some of my better ammo did this:


2) 24 Bolts of Flame (1d5) (+18,+14)
Branded with fire.

Combat info:
When fired, hits targets up to 180 feet away.
Average damage/round: 466.8 vs creatures not resistant to fire and
311.2 vs. others.
20% chance of breaking upon contact.

3) 24 Seeker Bolts (4d5) (+9,+10)
Combat info:
When fired, hits targets up to 180 feet away.
Average damage/round: 348.7.
20% chance of breaking upon contact.

5) 16 Mithril Bolts (3d5) (+3,+7)
Cannot be harmed by Acid.

Combat info:
When fired, hits targets up to 180 feet away.
Average damage/round: 297.1.
20% chance of breaking upon contact.



This all became moot when I got hit by nether 3 times on the same turn (the only thing I didn't resist.) But I was being careless so YASD, because my armor gave me overconfidence.

That sucks, it's literally the only thing your armour doesn't resist. I think I'd have made the same error
