Amulet of Inertia?

Is there some bug related to Amulets of Inertia. I am currently playing 3.1.2v2 on windows and the first amulet of inertia I identified was -3 speed. Now any amulet of inertia I see is -3, and I don't even need to ID it.

The -3 to speed is hardcoded in object.txt, the value is never randomized.

I'd like to see it changed to a 1d4 value. Inertia was the first FA item I found in my most recent character. I carried it around for a while thinking I might want it (I was at dlevel 30+ before I finally found a FA ring). The speed penalty was just too harsh though. If it were -1 I probably would've worn it.

Yeah, -4 is a big hit from base speed, and at higher levels when you have +speed items, you'll probably have a better amulet too.

It may look like a junk item to you, but sometimes I carry one around as a swap in ironman games, if I can spare the inventory slot. One of them saved my @ss once.

I'd use Inertia if the penalty was -1 speed instead of -3, more often anyway.

In the end, if that's all that can do it, inertia is a godsend, otherwise it's kinda pretty bad.

I'd happily start the game with an amulet of inertia in my pack, and in return I would happily give up using any amulets of slow digestion, resist acid, resist elec, adornment, teleportation and searching ever in the game for compensation.

Agreed. The only time I ever wear any of those is to use the neck as an extra inventory slot on my way to town, and I never wear the teleportation ones.

I've used amulets of resist acid/electricity sometimes to patch holes in my resistances that couldn't be covered any other way with my available gear. Heck, my current character was running around at 1800' with a "rElec, no rAcid, and only temporary rFire/rCold...

Teleportation and Searching never get used, though.
