the Heavy Crossbow of Tilthar (x7) (+8,+16) <+3, +3, -1>
+3 strength, dexterity, charisma, stealth, infravision, shooting power.
Provides resistance to cold, light, nether.
Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
Sustains intelligence.
Prevents paralysis. Sustains your life force.

Min Level 55, Max Level 127, Generation chance 1, Power 353, 20.0 lbs

What does that '-1' at the end refer to?

Also, why didn't it merge two equal +3 bonuses? All multi-PVAL items like Trickery amulet I have seen show one value if they match. Looks like spoiler-creation for those has some parsing bug.

If you keep randarts and then enable debug-mode and create Durin, does it create that randart? Durin would be 101, so 0 (for beginning count) 101^aC.

If I 'create' that crossbow it displays the attributes as '(x7) (+8,+16) <+3>'.

Looking at the artifact.spo it appears that a lot of them have superfluous modifier values which aren't displayed 'in game'.

How strange.

That crossbow – should I find it – will be very handy with a quiverful of Holy Mights...

Shouldn't have generated the artifact.spo file. Or perhaps I should.

Looked at the things waiting to be discovered and decided there was absolutely no way I was going to be able to juggle melee capability / CON / ESP / resists.

HTML Code:

a) the Main Gauche of Celen (2d5) (+12,+24) <+4>
    Dropped by Feagwath, the Undead Sorcerer at 2950 feet (level 59).
e) the Elfstone of Cirim <+4>
    Dropped by Kham˚l, the Black Easterling at 2950 feet (level 59).

p) the Amulet of Cirin <+4>
    Found lying on the floor in a vault at 2700 feet (level 54).
v) the Flail of Serim (3d6) (+13,+16) <+3>
    Found lying on the floor at 1950 feet (level 39).

I might not have noticed if I hadn't been wearing Cirin and Serim when I found Cirim and Celen.

Yeah, but the original cursed artifacts have at least one benefit like FA or SI or something ...
Not that I ever have used one of them beisides a certain sword.

Didn't find it, but other than the aggravate this is very pretty...

I do spend some quite some time mucking about on DL100 before taking on Morgy; there's usually a vault there, and he's the dumbest chaser in the game when confronted with a permanent wall.

Are there always DL100+ randarts (or indeed regular artefacts) other than Grond / The Massive Iron Crown / The One Ring?

Mondkalb April 6, 2013 08:28

Looks like Razorback in disguise, a bit buffed up though with the + to stats.

Something makes me suspect it's Bladeturner :)

Looking at the spoilers, Bladeturner is also a DL100-127 artefact. Didn't realise they existed, other than the Morgy-related items.

Just lost a game that quickly turned from slightly boring to really interesting at L26 (cleared a minor vault with nice loot) but then met a Basilisk and since I had no ESP or free action item (never saw one in the entire game) I was screwed ...

Anyway, I wish I had been able to play on and find this little masterpiece. The combo of being rather powerful and the superb activation for a half troll warrior makes it very attractive.


the Great Axe 'Beldorel' (6d4) (+6,+10) <+2>
 +2 intelligence, dexterity, speed, attack speed.
 Slays animals, undead.
 Branded with weak acid, lightning, venom.
 Provides resistance to cold, sound, disenchantment.
 Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
 Sustains dexterity.
 Prevents paralysis.  Grants the ability to see invisible things. 
 When activated, it restores 1200 hit points, heals cut damage, and cures
 stunning, poisoning, blindness, and confusion.
 Takes 147 to 198 turns to recharge.

Min Level 68, Max Level 127, Generation chance 1, Power 460, 23.0 lbs
Based on Ringil.
