would you stick with this thing, try to find enough *Remove Curse* (most curses are of power 80~90, some are power 60) to wear this?
the stat penalty shouldn't be too much of a problem, seeing as how this kit protects you from EVERYTHING ELSE, including its own xp drain ...

I didn't see hold life in the list, so I don't see how it protects you from its own experience drain. I'd probably pass, just because the energy required to hunt down enough to make this worthwhile could be better spent descending and hunting down the Big Bosses.

Hold life doesn't prevent experience drain anyways, it just limits it to a lesser amount. The One Ring has experience drain, but is still eminently wearable.

I'd definitely haul it up and store it. Maybe I'd get lucky and put together a kit that makes it useful. But I wouldn't focus any more attention on it than that.

When you find something like this, the question is not about whether it will be good for your character's survival to wear it. It's all about style.

I would stash it and gather *remove curse*, but not hold my breath. Even if you manage to uncurse it, the stat mali are likely to be a dealbreaker.

If your play style is to lay siege to Angband, then certainly haul it up and store it at home. If your play style is to dive fast, then drop it on the floor and move on.

Eh, all you really need to get rid of, as far as I can tell, is no_teleport. As long as it has that, it's useless. The moment it doesn't have it, it's perfectly usable. -4 CON is sort of nasty, and a Priest would have trouble making up for the -5 WIS, but 3 immunities, half the resistances and pBlnd pConf is pretty damn good. A shame it doesn't have lightning immunity as well. +2 attacks more than makes up for the maluses to STR and to DEX and the combat maluses.

Aggravation. Combat wise it might come out ahead, but its like Gorlim - store at home and only use for the final stage (for me). Ymmv of course.
