Those slippers are pretty powerful, just a bad impedance match with the usual need for speed in the boots slot.

If you make an html screenshot or a character dump you can copy-paste from that. Not sure if there's a simpler way.

It is very rare that Bladeturner turns (npi) into something other than a melee weapon or armour. When it does though, it always seems to pick up aggravation. It looks like aggravation is somehow required to make it pass some check.

At first I thought that maybe aggravation reduces the power value, but the values of aggravating BTs dont seem consistently lower. Maybe its just a bug ? If anyone code-wise has a clue or idea of what is going on, IŽd be very interested.

Just bad luck. Chance of getting aggravation is fixed and simply depends on the number of aggro artifacts vs the number of total artifacts. An artifact gets aggro if it's base power is high enough (300 -- BT has 775) and passes a check of %chance= 100 * number of aggro artifacts / number of total artifacts for its type (weapon or not).

Ah, thanks. So I havee seen a nonexistant pattern in too small a sample.

Tried using this in Radh's first bout against Sauron, and got teleported off the level when he was at 50%. Came back later with Trickery for the ResNexus. It's memorable because it provides an off weapon brand but still manages to not be helpful in the kit.

the Jewel of Romelen <+1>
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 4900 feet (level 98)

+1 light.
It brands your melee attacks with acid.
Provides resistance to acid.
Radius 1 light.

I should probably take note of this.

Its rare that an off weapon brand is useful. The majority are not very helpful (slay animal or poison brand), or already coverd by the same brand present on the weapon, or simply worse than standard options for the slot, like your case.
