Surprising Non Artifact Weapon

Just found this beast:

a Blade of Chaos of Extra attacks (6d5) (+18 +17) +2
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 4900 feet (level 98)

+2 attack speed
Provides resistance to Chaos
Can be destroyed by Acid

6.0 blows a round
Average damage/round: 606.6

What's the strongest non artifact weapon you have found?

There are several possible answers, depending on class.
* MoD of Gondolin for Mage. A huge find when you are grinding for experience around DL 40. Just mows down all the important families of monster.
* MoD (HA) or +2 attacks for fighter class. Unfortunately, it is hard to get 5 blows let alone 6, so it isnt ao good for warrior or rogue.
* Buckland <+2,+2,+3> (+23,+26), before the extra shots nerf. Just a machine gun.
* Longbow of Lothlorien <+5> (+25,+25) for Ranger. This was crazy.

But the big one now is MoD +2 attacks for 4.2 Paladin. 6 or 7 blows, with evil brand--I am looking forward to finding one.

MoD +2 attacks also great for priest. 6 Blows with evil brand _and_ the full spellset. Well, minus single combat - but still.
