I challenge anyone to show me an artifact armor that's better than this:

Power Dragon Scale Mail (Dwarven) (-3) [60+46] <+2, +4>:
Found lying on the floor in a vault at 4900 feet (level 98)

+2 strength
+2 constitution
+4 infravision

Provides resistance to acid, lightning, fire, cold, poison, light, dark, sound, shards, chaos, disenchantment.
Provides protection from confusion.
Prevents paralysis.

When aimed, it breathes a cone of magical energy with width 20 degrees, dealing 300 damage at the source.
Takes 120 turns to recharge at your current speed.
Your chance of success is 80.2%

^ had the same except that it was +2 STR, with +2 Blows instead of +2 CON
Randarts are a thing. You should try them.



.. heck, i've had PDSMs artifacts with +5 to all stats, +14 Spd, A: MBan. Go look up the "this week i didn't find" thread.

@Ugramoth--
Yep, PDSM (Dwarven) is the one most powerful ego item in the game. The best ego shooters may have an edge in the margins, but they are not so obviously the best in their class-- even better than top artifacts.

@Sky
I always play with randarts, and had a few nice pieces of armor with speed bonuses etc. even in this game but this combo of more than 100 AC and nearly all resistances from one piece of equipment allowed me to choose everything else rather freely. I haven't actually found PDSM in years and never an artifact.

Anyway, thanks partially to that armor, managed to kill Morgoth with dunadan paladin. Second 4.2 win after HE mage.

Strong start

So, after the win, off again with HT priest. First entry to dungeon, 2-6 on level 1 turned out to be this:

Dagger (1d4) (+4, +8) <+2> {??}
Found lying on the floor at 50 feet (level 1)

You do not know the full extent of this item's powers.
+2 dexterity
Grants telepathy
