Medusa dropped a spear of acid 1d6 (+10, +6) branded with acid.

She also dropped a mace of lightning 2d4 (+10, +12).

Wormtongue dropped something strange, a pick of earthquakes 1d3 (+16, +14) +3 STR, +5 digging, also branded with acid.

So nothing useful. Waste of the *healing*. Reload perhaps.

You are lucky to be still alive.
She could have killed you from full health in one turn with a spell or breath attack.

Found another unique weapon long sword 'Elgavil' that doesn't look worth keeping.

But people are mentioning 'heavier is better later', the spear doing about 90% more damage is 5 pounds, while the sword is 13 pounds...

Wand of polymorph pretty useless because it won't work on strong things?

Or useful for something like 9 headed hydras?

Potions of berserk strength looking useless - from 392 to 396 damage.

Interesting - a ring of STR +4 lowers damage a good amount over DEX +3 or damage +12. Looks useless.

Found a third 'thanc', Dethanc, only 266 damage so dropping it... (in a big vault that's the second most dangerous level feeling).

Look at the race/class modifiers. You wont have trouble getting str. It maxs at 18/220 with gear bonuses.
