What was the item on your early x-9 level ?

Thought I'd make a thread about this, for anecdotal data.

To start:

Multi-Hued Dragon Scale Mail (-2) [45,+11] {??}
Found lying on the floor of a cavern at 1000 feet (level 20)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
Provides resistance to Acid, Fire, Cold.

lucky; those are good not just for the rPois, but also because the breath can wipe out a lot of the early uniques.

I do find tons of potions of EXP early on, but also other things which are an upgrade to basic DL1 items, i.e. sling -> sling of buckland, robe -> robe of permanence, shield -> shield of preservation ..

Good thing I made this thread....

a) a Mace of Disruption of *Slay Animal* (5d8) (+11,+2) <+2> {??}
Found lying on the floor at 100 feet (level 2)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
+2 intelligence.
Slays animals.

Combat info:
You are too weak to use this weapon.
1.0 blow/round.
With +1 STR and +0 DEX you would attack a bit faster
With +4 STR and +0 DEX you would get 1.1 blows
With +1 STR and +1 DEX you would get 1.1 blows
Average damage/round: 59.8 vs animals and 32.8 vs. others.

Edit: You smite the cave spider! (63)
Edit2: You smite the rattlesnake (185). It was a *GREAT* hit !

if you had selling on, you could turn that into something useful.

What! Selling that awesome weapon ?? Im *owning* cave spiders!

Alas, a teleport trap into a room full of green Zs and 2 _tele activation fails later, this story comes to an end.

But not to worry...here we go again, with the next incarnation:

Power Dragon Scale Mail (-3) [60,+15] {??}
Found lying on the floor at 1650 feet (level 33)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
Provides resistance to Acid, Lightning, Fire, Cold, Light, Shards,
Disenchantment.
Provides protection from confusion.

Not quite as early and after a long struggle (only recently upgraded my whip +7), but still post worthy, methinks.

Crazy! I think I found PDSM only once, ever. Seen The One Ring more often.

well, PDSM isn't terribly hard to get, if you want it.
Make a rogue, get him to DL98, sit on stairs, go up/down and keep casting Detect Objects.
Also PDSM has that bright yellow colour, it's unmistakable.

..again, by that time you will probably have better armour though. Even with +2 STR +2 CON, a PDSM Dwarven does not match the type of stat bonuses normally found on good randarts. And yeah it does come with that shopping list of resists, but those are plentiful in randart games.

Recently was lucky to have Farmer Maggot drop a sling of Buckland very early (maybe the very start?, can't absolutely recall)

Just today at DL2, 1-9 turned out to be an amulet of trickery!

The next level was 2-6, +3 Con ring!
