Strange game

After finding almost nothing for the first 25 levels other than this which is a mixed blessing at best:

r) a Tulwar (Blessed) (2d4) (+5,+6) <+1> {ESP}
Found lying on the floor at 600 feet (level 12)

+1 wisdom.
Grants telepathy. Blessed by the gods (combat bonuses for holy
casters).


Now ESP is huge, but the thing did around 20 damage - so it had to be a swap for a main gauche - but even that did only 36

I mean other than the Blessed Tulwar, I had some boots of Slow Descent - no Resists, no free action, nothing.

Until I meet a young black dragon in an arena room:

a) a Whip (Defender) (1d5) (+10,+15) [+5] <+3> {??}
Dropped by a young black dragon at 1350 feet (level 27)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
+3 stealth.
Provides resistance to Acid, Lightning, Fire, Cold.
Cannot be harmed by Acid, Fire.
Feather Falling. Speeds regeneration. Grants the ability to see
invisible things. Prevents paralysis.

Combat info:
2.3 blows/round.
With +1 STR and +0 DEX you would get 2.7 blows
With +0 STR and +3 DEX you would get 2.7 blows
Average damage/round: 71.8.


j) the Iron Helm 'Halion' [7,+16] <+2>
Dropped by a young black dragon at 1350 feet (level 27)

+2 wisdom.
Provides protection from blindness.
Cannot be harmed by Acid.

It is rare that non-uniques drop more than 1 exceptional item; but if you have nothing, every high value item is likely to be useful.

Kavlax at 2150 on the other hand gave me 4 items - none with even an ego attached

Are we sure something isn't out of whack with 4.2.4?

It's exceptionally rare that a defender weapon does the most damage of all weapons found to that point. That's a nice find.

Yes - I was super happy with a +15 damage whip multi-hit weapon.
Was doing close to 250 when I swapped up
