Yeah, and the insane randart probably won't even have -1 stealth, let alone aggro. (I don't play with randarts much. ) besides this two, I've also used Calris and the crazy BoC.

You didn't use Deathwreaker? It is *amazing*! Easily the best melee weapon in the game. One Ring is crazy powerful, too.

For melee characters, superb ego weapons are also possible. But they, too, are found late in the game. Early on, it is almost impossible to beat Forasgil, which is very common. Even the current 1d4...

Yeah, that sling is impossibly good for a mage (or, really for any character.) It's like carrying an Uzi into the Pits of Angband.

Early Nazgul weapons are excellent. They have big archery pluses, AND give SI at a time--and equipment slot!--it is hard to come by. It is just ideal as a swap.

Even without the ESP, that weapon can be one of the best in the game for a mage or priest who wants to melee. Massive damage with 4 blows, against Dragons, Demons AND undead. Sure you won't use it...

I What is too early? 1000'? 1500'? In my current game I replaced a cheesy ego Slay dagger with Forasgil(!) at 800', and felt it was astonishingly lucky.

WRT d20 variability: Sil uses it to great effect. OAngband and derivatives do something similar with criticals.

I have since found a ring of speed +8, which let me swap in the boots of Thror, for 70-odd less HP and 11 base speed, with a cloak of aman (rNether) instead instead of 8 speed with Elvenkind. I...

Distinct monsters, yes. And it was a beta that Eddie grove (aka Powerdiver) made before retiring from the game. I lost my copy, alas, but I suspect there is a copy around somewhere.

What he said. I had thought the subwindow for lists were executed as OS menus. In that case you could put them anywhere. Had not realized it was still a regular Term pane.

"Eddieband" works that way, sort of. You get one exp for 3very distinct kill, and every time you ID-by-use. It is based on 3.0.5, but with squelch. I might play it if it had rune-ID as well.

Bow of power is only an issue of you find it really early. Rather than nerf it, perhaps make it a bit deeper? It's suitable for around DL 25.

After one very close call, I *only* fight summoners in ASCs or otherwise constrained locations. Fundin summoned multiple summoners, and I barely made it out. Without phase, this is way too dangerous.
