I've been playing Angband on and off since around 1998, and I've never even seen Ringil once. I am so unworthy.

Try unchecking "randomize artifacts" birth option. /wink

IMO, every Ringil drop is an epic Ringil drop.

Played for months now (poorly, I gather) with several dozen characters, and just found Ringil the first time, dropped by a dreadmaster at a fairly deep level.

I was puzzled, because the LF was a more 5-5, and the only reason I stuck around was to try out a new tactic with glyphs, and had this dreadmaster right there for the test-drive. (Playing a priest that can recover lost stats/exp, so wasn't too worried about the experiment.)

Most powerful early drop I saw, that I can remember, was last character (ignoring the usual cluster of "killed by a mushroom patch on level 2" failures), a rogue who landed power dragon scale mail on, IIRC, DL 12. Wasted it, too, by trying to take on Morgoth too early, without sufficient gear.

The lesson is to ignore level feeling. (Not joking, btw.)
