Farmer Maggot can only generate in town.

In all the games of Angband that I've played, Farmer Maggot has *NEVER* dropped anything really stunning. Upthread there's lot's of reports of really good luck. For me, a great Maggot drop is literally far rarer than The One Ring!

At least he doesn't drop "Helms of Beauty" anymore. Thank you, Nick! I can't tell you how many times I wanted to jump up and down and curse playing 3.5 when Maggot would drop a Helm of Beauty" even though Charisma had been removed as a stat.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”

He used to be able to drop artifacts in 2.4.frog-knows. I'm not sure precisely when this changed, but I think it went well into Ben Harrison's tenure in the 2.7.*s. It was not at all rare to get the phial or maybe one of the *thancs. There were legends on r.g.r.a about One drops.

I was only about CL7 in my current game when Maggot dropped this:

a Flail of Westernesse (2d6) (+7,+11) <+1, +2>
Dropped by Farmer Maggot in town

+1 strength.
+1 dexterity.
+2 constitution.
Slays orcs, trolls, giants.
Prevents paralysis. Grants the ability to see invisible things.

Combat info:
1.1 blows/round.
With +6 STR and +0 DEX you would get 1.3 blows
With +0 STR and +2 DEX you would get 1.3 blows
Average damage/round: 47.6 vs. orcs, 47.6 vs. trolls, 47.6 vs.
giants, and 29.9 vs. others.

It served me well until I lucked into a randart drop on DL35.

Right at the start he was there. So I killed him, and he dropped a long bow of extra shots. Which is noteworthy because I was playing - youŽd never guess - a ranger.

Still using it at clvl 31/ dlvl 75.

Just got a Scimitar of *Slay Troll*, most noteworthy because I'm playing a half-troll. Good thing Mr. Maggot wasn't wielding that!
