1) Sharpness and *Sharpness* give sharp criticals, which basically multiply the damage from the dice, but in a much more unpredictable way than brands or slays. The damage numbers shown on your character sheet account for sharp criticals.
2) Yes (and ?Acquirement results are not necessarily artifacts)
3) Magic resistance would reduce the damage, but magic resistance is incredibly rare (the vast majority of winning characters never find a magic resistance item). Reflection gives a 75% chance to reflect any incoming bolts, including mana bolts; you will take no damage from a reflected bolt. Remember, though, that that still leaves a 25% chance of the mana bolt getting through...

Level up a bit more and your character will have to survive much worse than mana bolts
The Complainer worries about the lack of activity here these days.
