Grotug, don't worry. Most people here (excluding me) can list at least two thirds of all artifacts, with stats.

I'm pretty sure you're talking about Narya -- and I didn't even have to check the artifact spoilers to make certain I had the right Ring of Power!

Much of the other gear that gives immunity to fire also aggravates, incidentally.

Sadly, monster aggravation is a bad thing, not a good thing. It wakes up all monsters within a certain range (AFAIA).
Not entirely sure, but does it make things like hounds chase you?

Oh, god, NO! You completely ruined the game for me!1111eleven!1

Ya, I'm guessing pretty much anyone around here is already spoiled rotten, but I guess we should try to keep up the pretense

Well, actually... it can be a good thing (as you sort of allude to). It can be wonderful for luring powerful uniques into a strategically advantageous position (for @!), but of course it requires a bit of finesse so that you won't be chased down by a pitful of pit fiends.

A big part of the fun for me is discovering artifacts, so I hope I don't stumble upon any on this site I haven't yet found ingame. I actually don't browse the threads much on here for that reason.

Yes, it was 'Narya'

Found 3.1 Angband still installed on an old laptop and played it nonstop.

Randarts.

Found a 6d5 Main Gauche art as a warrior at level 800 and was doing over 200 damage a round!

Then I found another main gauche with +3 attacks that I was dying to use after I found some rings of damage.

Then I found a halberd with base die 9d6 that I was planning on owning with when I got some more str and dex.

All before clvl 25 and dungeon level 2000!

Then a mindflayer did some sort of psionic blast on me and killed me instantly.

I hate angband.

Brownbear, I stopped reading your post after +3 attacks since I've never encountered anything with more than 1 or 2. Here's an update on my current game:

What happened yesterday in game just goes to show close doesn't count: Was picking through tons of junk looking for one more useful item from a dl91 level with very good treasure feeling. I found a powerful axe with cold protection and +2 all stats. After killing all the monsters and combing through the last of the drops, and nearly calling it a day several times, I found a crown artifact that brought me the closest I've been to solving my character with no wis, con or dex sacrifice and only minor str sacrifice, but I dawdled too long. With the new setup, my only missing pieces were lightning and nether, but, of course, sans rLightning with the new setup would be a real problem, but I thought I was safe. The level was very quiet. There was only one, lone stone troll stuck in the gigantic treasure room. Never seen such a large special/permanent room before. Other than that, I really had killed/banished everyone, including slaying an entire room of A's. Suddenly, totally out of the blue, my health is 56. Really? What the... I loathfully press [more] and I live to see another turn. I check the messages and quaff a !*healing* and don again Dor-Lomin. The Great Storm Wyrm had struck me with lightning. It takes me a minute to find it down a ways and off to the side, off screen at the edge of a hallway opening.

In other news, just solved my character. I posted the character dump but got this message, instead of a link to it:

I'm using random artifacts so you don't have to worry about getting spoiled.

Hope you get that win soon! The last time I played and won was probably over 5 years ago, and I remember almost dying to Saruman many times.

Yeah, the ladder is based on current xp, not max. So when you want to post your character, be sure to drink RLL before.
