RandArt and Egos

I found a RANDart bow that was of flame <+39>. It had no other pvals, I guess, and also is of CHR, so it gives +39 charisma. Boy, is my gnome warrior cute.

Should the crystal weapons be branded with acid? They are in the identify description and also appear to do more damage to vulnerable monsters.

Ah yes, this is because +CHR is considered irrelevant when calculating whether pvals are overpowered. It would not be possible to get any other pval that high, and of course is only happening because slays/brands are now using pvals. I guess this ought to be changed, though I'm still waiting for someone to do the right thing and remove CHR altogether ....

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this. "Crystal" is a random prefix available on ego weapons - it doesn't carry acid brand, but there's nothing to stop it being combined with another affix that gives acid brand.

Crystal does indeed carry the acid brand. All the weapons that I have found with the crystal affix do more damage to critters with acid vulnerability. The description does not say "branded with acid", but the damage description does indicate an inflated value against acid vulnerable monsters.

Also, I found another rand-art that gives a finess and prowess of -1. This was a great flail. Once i can figure out this whole character dump thing I'll post it.

Ummm ... we don't yet have an "acid vulnerable" flag, so you simply mean monsters without IM_ACID. I think the damage from acid must be coming from a flag on another piece of equipment, rather than from the weapons with the Crystal prefix? We can investigate further when you post a dump.

Unfortunately what's needed to work this out is not a dump but the randart.log file - this should be created in your lib/user directory, and there should be only one. It might be too big to post here, but you could post a url to it or PM me for my email.
