Ha! If Wormtongue was legit, he'd have used that weapon on me. And I'd be posting in the Instadeath thread instead.

Me too, but the last Phial I got activated for mass banishment which was cool until I used it next to a vault

When to kill wormtongue is a strategic decision. Killing him when he first starts to appear (DL8-10), if the player is able to, limits his potential to drop an artifact. Waiting and killing him later (after DL15, preferably after DL20) seems to almost guarantee an artifact. I tend to wait, but he is a fun challenge at DL8-10 and close to being a pushover by DL20.

Problem with waiting is that getting an artifact then might not be any better than getting an good ego earlier. And you might still get just a sword of slay orc.

I prefer killing early, because early good ego-item when you don't yet have much anything usually helps more than Yet Another Artifact later.

Usually I tend to avoid early uniques, but not with a warrior. Those want the Phial asap and any unique is a good shot at getting it. Other classes are happy with a lantern of everburning eventually, and there have been games where I have found one of the two big lights - Arkenstone or Palantir - before the Phial. For an early warrior, Phial means two more inventory slots: no oil, no rods of illumination.

Edit: and that sword Starhawk got is sick. Congrats and envy.
