Got it. But what did I do wrong with the enchant armour scrolls? The only stat decreasing from the disenchanter eye was the to_dam. So when to_dam was 0, I would use a scroll which would either fail or give me +1 to to_dam, in which case I would spam around the dischanter a bit until I went back to 0 and try again. Is it just a rare chance it will uncurse Gorlim or was I doing something wrong?

It should have been to_ac, not to_dam, that you were enchanting.

You have a 50% chance to enchant an artifact at +0, and upon success I believe a 25% chance to break the curse. So missing out using 20 scrolls is bad luck but not extremely unlikely.

Can you even use to-dam and to-hit on armor? I remember being royally peeved back in the day when e.g. Cammithrim got its special +8/+8 to-hit/dam disenchanted because there was no way to fix it. Has that been changed?

That sounds weird. It should have been AC, not to_dam that increased. Also all of those (except PVAL) are susceptible to disenchantment, so all of those should have decreased too.

Chance of breaking the curse is small, but it should not be zero. It is possible that you just got unlucky. I remember few times where I couldn't break the curse from Calris.

Until you get rid of Gorlim, Rillia is better than your current weapon. (Gorlim gives SI and FA as well as melee bonuses.)
