Grotug is on a distinguished road
My problem with Star of Elendil is that it's a frickin star; a cosmic body distilled into a special artifact; it should be very powerful and {special}, yet I usually yawn when I find it. EDIT: woops, I just read a wikia of he star and it's not a star at all; just a special stone.

My proposal is make the star more rare. Change its activation to a name appropriate one: _Starlight and give it +5 light radius and automap another +5 radius automatically as @ walks. Now it's truly a unique item in the game that isn't reproduceable with so many other items/spells. And it's rare and powerful and truly special. It also creates a dilemma about what to wear. True Sight or Elendil or Arkenstone; all doing separate things.
