If you're shooting them in the face three times a second, they tend to get pretty aggravated anyway.

Good lord, you should at least have kept it for the Sauron and Morgoth fights. Being able to do effectively 21x damage with bolts (or 24x with Slay Evil bolts) is [i]ridiculous[/b]. Say the bow and the bolts have +20 damage between them, and the bolts are only 1d5. That's 483 damage per turn for some pretty poorly-enchanted gear. If it was +30, 1d5 Slay Evil bolts, then it'd be 792 damage per turn.

When the response is so mind boggling you can't work out how to highlight and choose both ways.

Insane shovel

I've seen some post in the past that Morgoth has been killed with shovel. I think I found that shovel...

Shovel of Rilgas (3d2) (+20,+31) <+4, +2, +1>
Dropped by Rogrog the Black Troll at 2000 feet.
+4 intelligence
+2 wisdom
+1 constitution
+2 searching
+1 light
Slays undead (powerfully), dragons, demons, giants, orcs, animals, evil creatures.
Branded with poison.
Provides resistance to dark.
Provides protection from stunning.
Sustains dexterity. Grants the ability to see invisible things. Sustains your life force. Blessed by the gods.

Appropriate that a troll was carrying a weapon that literally slays everything that isn't a troll...

Awesome! Slays don't do much for a 3d2 weapon though, but I'd still be vary happy to find that shovel.

Dafug? I don't remember Tolkien mentioning any genius shovel maker, yet here I am, fretting over which shovel to use:

Shovel of Machaure (3d2) (+12,+21) [+20] <+1>
Found lying on the floor at 2100 feet

+1 light
Slays dragons (powerfully), demons (powerfully), undead, trolls, animals, evil creatures.
Branded with weak acid.
Provides resistance to acid, fire, cold, sound.
Provides protection from fear.
Sustains dexterity.
Grants telepathy. Grants the ability to see invisible things. Prevents paralysis.

RNG gods are being nice

So mage of the Two Mighty Shovels has to wield option 1 for stun resistance and could not use 2 for telepathy. Therefore, he has to rely on puny helm of telepathy instead of artifact helm with stat bonuses...
"Oh thanks Smaug, just what I needed!":
Hard Leather Cap 'Telwin' [2, +11] <+1, +3>
Dropped by Smaug the golden at 2400 feet.

+1 strength
+3 intelligence
+3 wisdom
+1 light
Provides resistance to fire, dark.
Cannot be harmed by acid.
Feather Falling. Grants telepathy. Grants the ability to see invisible things.

Well, still lacking key resistances of sound and shards and has to wear stupid ring of resist poison...
"OK, this will do!":
Band of Haleb <+3, +5, +2, +1>
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 2450

+3 strength
+5 intelligence
+2 dexterity
+1 light
Provides immunity to lightning.
Provides resistance to poison, dark, sound, shards.
Provides protection from fear.
Cannot be harmed by lightning.
Slows your metabolism. Prevents paralysis.

When activated, it creates a large frost ball with damage 200.

This one wins the game! Let the jokes begin.

On a more serious note, it looks like the 's' verb ending is missing in "Speed regeneration." Bug?
