Grotug--theres a standard artifact amulet with (+6,+6). (+8,+8) isn't so unbalancing. It's off weapon brands/slays/attacks that are hopelessly unbalanced, as was true for the infamous branding rings...

@Grotug--surely you found an adequate ego weapon by now, if no artifacts? Even a Lochaber axe of *Slay Evil* would work OK against M.

Nick-
You can almost certainly repro it by creating the object in wizard mode while blind.
Then step out of LOS and examine it from a distance.

Does anti-teleport prevent TO? That would be a real problem with Maeglin. Otherwise, it's no big deal so long as you have plenty of heal.

Nice, though giving up a point of WIS would be OK too. I've played that game a couple times. Indeed, it can really help.

Yeah, that is a hell of a weapon--roughly 60 damage just from the weapon alone. It's worth noting that the standard artifact set has no off-weapon brands/attacks either, so it's roughly comparable to...

Probably wise. There will be more vaults soon enough, with easier layout and significantly better loot.

It's a pretty brief effect. It's only truly dangerous when you lose strength and things start double moving you.

@Sky-
With standard artifacts, half the time you end up with ESP on an ego item anyway. (Cloak or Crown of the Magi, for example, or else a Bow of Lothlorien. Occasionally even a helm of ESP.) Lack...

Yeah, you're good to go. Smaug and the GCD can't kill you in one turn. (But do use the wand rather than the rod for them.) The rest are essentially harmless (tho the Nexus Q can give you a lot of...

But leveling up in itself isn't worth all that much. Sure, HP and better accuracy are nice, but CLW and Heroism have roughly the same effect. Much better to be searching for loot (or just finding...

@Grotug: as far as I know, there is no Holy Might mithril ammo for slings. Weaker ammo is the one weakness of Slings of Buckland. But even Slay Evil or Wounding shot is plenty deadly.

Congrats! That weapon is pretty much perfect for Ironman (and indeed for non-ironman): Acid brand against almost everything including Sauron for massive damage. Slay Evil vs. Morgoth for huge damage.

Luneya--the damage from a drolem at distance is reduced, sure. But it's not enough to protect most characters from instadeath.
