So this morning I started a new Dwarf Samurai, and was at dlvl 6, clvl 10. Had an inventory full of un-ID'd pots, scrolls, staves, etc as per usual low level exploration. I go to town and sell everything to vendor-ID it all, and guess what the shop keeper has a good gleefull laugh about? Well low and behold now sitting in the shop keepers inventory for 142,500 gold pieces is a nice crisp new Scroll of Acquirement. Grrrrr, and he only gave me 12g for it.

I really didn't expect such a nice scroll at dlvl 5-6, so I thought there would be no danger in vendor-IDing everything

In Poscheng you can almost guarantee that there's going to be something that's going to be generated way out of depth every once in a while. (Fortunately the same is true of Vanilla, these days, but perhaps not quite as extreme.)

If it's any consolation, I've had a similar experience with Boots of Speed (+4, I think) before pseudo-ID kicked in.

Bought *Aquirement* at Black Market for 30K.
Read at 2200'.

Survey Says:

Iron Helm of Dor-Lomin [7,+20] <+4, +2, -1>
Conjured forth by magic at 2200 feet (level 44).
+4 strength, constitution.
+2 dexterity.
-1 stealth.
Provides resistance to acid, lightning, fire, cold.
Provides protection from fear.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Grants telepathy. Grants the ability to see invisible things.

It would appear to be better than my current helm, Holhenneth.
Initially I wasn't sure I wanted to give up +2 Int, P Blind and P Conf...

Using it will allow me to drop the Amulet of Telepathy, and add amulet of the Magi, and get +2 Int back, P Blind back, and P Paral. Having P Paral on the amulet will allow me to drop Boots of Free Action, and swap to +3 Sandals of Stealth or something else later on. Overall a win, and prob worth the 30K



Iron Helm 'Holhenneth' [7,+10] <+2>
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 2050 feet (level 41).

+2 intelligence, wisdom.
+10% to searching.
Provides protection from blindness, confusion.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Grants the ability to see invisible things.

Great drop Freddo! Dor Lomin is probably the best artifact helm out there except maybe Crown of Gondor or Crown of Numenor. You may want to keep Holhenneth for its confusion protection, but by the end game I suspect you'll be wearing Dor Lomin.

I had Dor-Lomin for the first time recently. SO much better than Holhenneth. Having ESP integrated into a piece of armor frees up your amulet slot for so many possibilities!

Yep! I usually wear Dor-Lomin through endgame, though it sometimes shows up early.

Ringil?

I picked up vanilla again after a long hiatus, and I just had my first scroll of acquirement generate Ringil for me on level 33.

I'm ... not disappointed.

A massively lucky find!

the ring of adamant.

which you'd think is a great find, except i'm on randarts and this is essentially just a "ring of +4", and doesn't even come with +speed.
