I don't think they can pick them up but they can drop them. Those won't show up with !Enlightenment and if you don't notice it with the drop (and preserve is off or if you ID it and then drop it and forget it), it will be lost.

I'm pretty sure that you can't lose artifacts that were generated as part of a monster's drop (i.e. they spawn carrying the item), because that would be unfair. Monsters spawn all the time, so even a level clearer can't realistically see every item that ever potentially exists on a level before they leave it.

So my guess would be that you just didn't search hard enough. *shrug*

No worries. If you need a HLife swap, amulet of sustenance is just plain better. It works against all undead, not just life drainers. Otherwise, shield of preservation is very good too.

Hold Life is one of the weakest abilities in the game. A little experience drain won't slow you down much; experience is everywhere in the dungeon.

Also, were you seriously considering suiciding a character because you didn't get an artifact you wanted?

If you like collecting ridiculous amounts of shiny loot, have you considered playing Tales of Maj'Eyal?

Or its (now very distant) cousin, TomeNET? I just cleared an Ancient Red Dragon pit and surfaced with no less then five artifacts(two of which were really quite excellent) and as much other valuable loot as I could carry.
