Especially since, if I recall correctly, artifacts are specifically not allowed to be generated in the town.

(EDIT: in response to Magnate's post)

So if you read a Scroll of Acquirement (or *Acquirement*) in town there is *no* chance of an artifact?

I'm pretty sure that's the case, yes, but you should always be reading Acquirement at as deep a depth as possible anyway.

I'd rather have found a Rod of Speed or Healing at this stage, but all the same it's nice to have...

I always get excited to find that first artifact, especially when you get that surprise early one, so I was way disappointed when my SUPERB feeling on dlevel 20 something was wrath of god. As a mage of course.

Do special feelings still exist? With preserve off? I miss the special feeling.

So I just finished cracking the luckiest vault I've ever seen in this game. I'm on DLV 56 and up until now had only found a couple of silly bad randarts. Well within this medium sized treasure vault I found 3 artifacts of use, there are 6 i'm leaving behind, i found 2 potios of Augmentation, oh and my first RoS +8. I just went from struggling and probably soon to die to Superhero soon to defeat all evil! This is also the earliest I've ever seen "Omens of death haunt this place". There were 6 or so OOD uniques I had to teleport away.. This game still surprises me sometimes. I love it

if you browse my equipment/inventory/home you will notice the crazy amount of shit i am still using from that vault! Look towards the bottom of my game history! look at everything from 2800'. I actually found both the arkenstone and the phial too. And I had just found the star a few levels before that

I'm not entirely sure what happened here...



...shouldn't the Big Q have at least *attempted* something?

Somewhere, big Q arrives in Monster Afterlife, waving a leatherbound tome angrily in one glistening pseudopod.

"Damn it, the spoilers said that if I played dead, the Adventurer would leave me at 1 hp and go on about his business! Shenanigans!"

From a darkened corner, a frayed voice whispers, "Tell me about it." Farmer Maggot shuffles into view and sticks out his tongue.

GV Huge Modified - 1st WHOA! and then OH Sh*t!

My clvl 47 hT Mage recalled to level 78, activated palantir, 'L'ooked around: GV, type Huge - Modified! Whoa! Then when he got closer and got look what was inside, it was moment of Oh Sh*t! Khamul, Fagwath, Witch-King, Maeglin, Pazuzu, Cantoras, Carcharoth, Gorthmog! After some though, I started to clear vault opposite end to Maeglin, by the time I had reached middle row, Maeglin had cleared all the walls on the opposite side. I used mana storm and rift to keep Maeglin in distance, teleporting him away few times to get chance to regain mana, and occasionally banishing summoned monsters. Before I finally took out Maeglin I cleared vault, loot was impressive, 13 artifacts, some were left behind. After Maeglin was gone, I though vault was ideal place to kill Carcharoth, limit his summonings. It was, barely. After that I decided not to push my luck and recalled to town.

Here is char dump.

Edited, been playing warrior so much that I wrote warrior instead of mage. So, my hT Mage found GV
