More to the point, you can clear dragon pits with Calris and a Ring of Power, well before maxing your stats.

For fast divers, it's one of the weapons of choice for offing Morgoth.

This is the first time I have found calris without already owning ringil. so new stuff for me.

I'm currently in the process of enchanting the "to hit" stat for calris to usable levels.

Sound like RNG is playing tricks on you like it did to me when I started to play angband. I wondered that why everybody claims that Ringil is rare when I find it in every game, but after few thousand games it was pretty clear that I was just being lucky. Ringil is rather rare weapon. Calris not so rare weapon.

yes. ringil's unnatural abundance spoilt me in the very early days, back in 1992/3 but i stopped playing angband back then played again in roughly 2000. and picked it back up about a week ago. need to relearn a few things.

which reminds me: is there a thread with a bunch of regularly used acronyms and new words the uninitiated may need to know? eg "squelch" it;s been a long time and i've never seen that word before. also searched the faq and found no q's at all.

don't think squelching existed in 92
It's destroying an item, marking it as useless.

Automatically destroying spesific item types that is. So you don't have to wade through yet another +dex ring if you don't need them, or wands of disarming etc...

...and hiding it from view. Out of sight, out of mind.

"Hiding", not "destroying". At least in vanilla case. If you unsquelch an item it appears back.

But... does the game generate pre-squelched items?

Yes, at least in vanilla angband. Squelch doesn't do anything to item generation, it only hides them from sight so that you don't see as much clutter and can concentrate on items that are interesting.
