*Aquirement*

I just found a scroll of *Aquirement* in a small vault on dL31. Should I read it now or wait till I'm deeper? Is it noticably more likely to get me better stuff if I wait a few levels?

People often wait to 2000', where a lot of artifacts are native.

Keep it at home until you're ready to use it (it's not fireproof) -I'd dive a deep as possible in a short period of time -say, 2000' - 2500' - read it and then ascend a bit if that depth is just too suicidal for you...

Surely acquirement requires an 'excellent' item,
so the item generated is +10lvl already....

They create a probably desireable item next to you when read.

Speaking of acquirement... isn't it somewhat pointless to implement a rare item whose only use is to disappear and create a different rare item? I suppose there's limited gameplay utility in that you must protect a scroll from fire and acid before you can read it... but it still seems redundant. Why not just create the final product to begin with?

Because it's more fun this way?

I see it as an "artifact lottery".
