Just a few questions:

1) I found Morgemil (cursed). Can this be uncursed or useful in any way?

2) I found Orcrist. The description says that it is blessed by the gods...what does that mean?

3) Sting says it increased your speed by 2 and attack speed by 2. What is the difference? I understand that it gives +2 total speed...does it also give 2 extra blows per turn?

4) I want to make sure that I understand the weapon damage formula. I think it is something like this

(((base damage roll) * weapon multiplier) + added damage) * number of blows. (assuming a normal hit).

Is that correct? So if I am wielding Orcrist and I get 4 blows/round and I am fighting something not immune to frost (and not a dragon), it would be like this: (((2d5) * 3) + 15) * 4) assuming a normal hit with 4 blows/round?

5) From strictly a melee damage point of view, which weapon would you recommend I wield? My current weapon is only equipped because I was seeing how it affected my stats...i'm not actually using it.


Sorry for the long post, but I'd appreciate any advice you can offer. Thanks!
