Farmer Maggot can only generate in town.

In all the games of Angband that I've played, Farmer Maggot has *NEVER* dropped anything really stunning. Upthread there's lot's of reports of really good luck. For me, a great Maggot drop is literally far rarer than The One Ring!

At least he doesn't drop "Helms of Beauty" anymore. Thank you, Nick! I can't tell you how many times I wanted to jump up and down and curse playing 3.5 when Maggot would drop a Helm of Beauty" even though Charisma had been removed as a stat.

He used to be able to drop artifacts in 2.4.frog-knows. I'm not sure precisely when this changed, but I think it went well into Ben Harrison's tenure in the 2.7.*s. It was not at all rare to get the phial or maybe one of the *thancs. There were legends on r.g.r.a about One drops.

I was only about CL7 in my current game when Maggot dropped this:

a Flail of Westernesse (2d6) (+7,+11) <+1, +2>
Dropped by Farmer Maggot in town

+1 strength.
+1 dexterity.
+2 constitution.
Slays orcs, trolls, giants.
Prevents paralysis. Grants the ability to see invisible things.

Combat info:
1.1 blows/round.
With +6 STR and +0 DEX you would get 1.3 blows
With +0 STR and +2 DEX you would get 1.3 blows
Average damage/round: 47.6 vs. orcs, 47.6 vs. trolls, 47.6 vs.
giants, and 29.9 vs. others.

It served me well until I lucked into a randart drop on DL35.

Right at the start he was there. So I killed him, and he dropped a long bow of extra shots. Which is noteworthy because I was playing - youŽd never guess - a ranger.

Still using it at clvl 31/ dlvl 75.

Just got a Scimitar of *Slay Troll*, most noteworthy because I'm playing a half-troll. Good thing Mr. Maggot wasn't wielding that!

Code:
You have slain Farmer Maggot.
You see a Set of Leather Gloves [1,+1].
I'm playing a rogue. But at least I have selling on, so I could get a whole 4 gold for them at the armoury.

Congratulations! I think that is the theoretically worst drop possible.

@Nick-
that is correct, with the arguable exception of an Iron Crown [0,+1]

The Iron Crown at least isn't actively detrimental to 2 or 3 of the classes (arguably Rogue doesn't care much, but Mage and Ranger certainly do).
