don't be so hermetic.

The randart list is generated at the start of the game. There used to be an option to keep a randart list over multiple games, but it no longer exists.

Obviously, which artifact gets selected for a level is determined upon generating that level. You can have the same artifact generated multiple times, until you find it - walk on it or pick it up. Once you find the artifact, if you discard it, it's gone forever.

There is a game option to play with artifacts which are placed on a level only once - if you miss it, it's gone forever. As a payoff, you get a special symbol, "$" in the level feeling, to show you that an artifact exists on that level. (it's harder to play like this, believe me, i used this option for years)

If you do really like you can grab the file from your user/archive directory, copy it to your user directory as "artifact.txt", and play with randarts off.

Ok, so this has happened to me.

My clvl48 HE blackguard has all sorts of cool stuff and I'm close to the final fight. I'm crawling dlvl65-70 looking for upgrades and potions right now but I've not found a randart light - since these can often give useful stat boosts and even immunities then I'd really like to find a couple.

* Is it true there are no randart lights below dlvl30?

* Is it possible there are not randart lights in my game?

*1 Randart lights wont drop below a certain level; the exact number depends on the (random) power of the lights, but is usually around 40.

*2 No.

What I usually do is refrain from killing uniques till level ~25 or so (except for the very early ones, Bullroarer Wormy) - thats where typically the small drop window for randart lights starts - and then proceed slowly from there and dont move past 40 without killing all the uniques at that depth and not without at least one randart light. Usually I find most of them this way.
