incredible damage potential even for a mage

Yep, Slings of Buckland are probably the best launchers in the game.

And not even a randart! In PWMAngband, I nerfed the ES to be always +1, because I've never seen a "memorable" randart sling, and definitely Buckland should not be better than ALL the randart slings ever generated...

So, half troll warrior had some branded weapons for ~250 damage but was using a defender mace (2 stealth) with only ~200 damage as it was the only source of SI.

Then I found this:

a) the Flail of Aragona (6d6) (+12,+27) <+4, +1>
Dropped by a mature black dragon at 2300 feet (level 46)

+4 strength.
+4 stealth.
+1 light.
Slays undead (powerfully), animals.
Provides resistance to acid, lightning, light.
Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.
Slows your metabolism. Speeds regeneration. Grants the ability
to see invisible things.

Combat info:
3.5 blows/round.
With +0 STR and +1 DEX you would get 3.8 blows
Average damage/round: 646.1 vs. undead, 401.2 vs. animals, and
319.5 vs. others.

Perfect fit.

A not-so-memorable randart:
Code:

h) the Fur Cloak of Himlor [3,+15]
    Dropped by Brodda, the Easterling at 1450 feet (level 29)
   
    Cannot be harmed by acid, fire.

Thanks Brodda, I guess?

I am guessing that is from the phial. The cursed artifacts are deeper than DL 20.

Back in the dungeon for no idea how many years. Descenting slowly, and finally found my first randart weapon!

r) the Dagger 'Valadele' (1d4) (-10,-8) {cursed, ??}
Dropped by Bolg, Son of Azog at 1000 feet (level 20)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
It makes it hard to hit anything.
It paralyses you every now and then.
It occasionally makes a loud noise.
Slays undead (powerfully), evil creatures.
Cannot be harmed by Acid.
Drains experience.

When activated, it grants temporary free action for 1d10+10 turns.
Takes 42 to 46 turns to recharge at your current speed.
Your chance of success is 94.1%

I think I'll keep my +9+9 Holy Avenger for now :-D

Got 5-9 feeling at level 18. Turns out to be this:

Ring of Geluinya <+6, +1, +3, +2>:
Found lying on the floor at 900 feet (level 18)

+6 wisdom.
+1 dexterity.
+3 constitution.
+2 stealth.
+1 searching skill.
Provides immunity to cold.
Provides resistance to Acid, Lightning, Fire, Light, Dark, Nexus, Nether.
Provides protection from fear, confusion.
Cannot be harmed by Lightning.
Slows your metabolism. Feather Falling. Grants telepathy. Grants the ability to see invisible things. Prevents paralysis. Sustains your life force.

When activated, it completely lights up and magically maps the level, detecting all objects.
Takes 205 to 325 turns to recharge.

Well, Dunadan mage does not need +6 wisdom but I think this is still somewhat better than the ring of resist fire and cold I was wearing. Especially since the activation is not some half-ass detection, it's full Enlightenment!
