Artifacts on 5s eh? I still remember back when they had "special" feelings when there was an artifact.

I just found Elvagil with a 5, and the text says "yet there may be something worthwhile here."

Interesting. The feelings are more vague it seems. I'm ok with that. I did like it when it was obvious that there was an artifact, but I can adjust

I believe there's (or at least there used to be) a special rule in the level feelings calculation that if there's an artefact on the level, the treasure feeling immediately gets bumped up to a 5 even if the artefact itself is so weak and useless it wouldn't normally generate a feeling that good. The logic being that artefacts are still special and interesting even if they're not actually any good, so they automatically count as "something worthwhile".

This is why I love randarts. They are always interesting (occasionally anticlimactically) and I equate the feeling of finding a new randart with the feeling of christmas morning as a young child.

The special feelings still exist if you turn off preserve mode, but most people prefer being able to flee an impossible level, and have their artifacts live to be found another day.
