      My latest one was a balance dragon scale mail. While nice, not really that helpful early on...

        If you're @ had the strength to wear it, it makes for a nice breath weapon for battling early uniques -

          My HE bg with who had previously found only a robe of rLightning found a potion of experience on a 3-9 zooming from level 15 to level 29.
          That level 20 barrier is a tipping point for the BG because of the extra attack with whirlwind.
          Of course, that's usually associated with a better weapon than a bastard sword 3d4 (+5, +1)

                Now that's a nice combo on... anything.

                  150'

                  Lead-Filled Mace of Extra Attacks (4d3) (+7,+7)<+2>


                  About 50 points a round - useful - but not what I was hoping for....


                  after wielding it for a while - it's useful and didn't unbalance the game - I was surprised.

                        Except early @s strong enough to wield it are too stupid to figure out how to work the activation

                          Not actually very useful at that level. Hard to activate, and you can't absorb that many HP anyway. But it can be very useful later to be sure.

                            Not very useful at all. I actually squelched it, being a HT warrior. If I had been HE warrior, I would have stored it for the endgame but HT magic device is abysmal.

                              DL 8 : Rod of Healing - 1000 turn recharge and 29% success. Useless. Playing paladin so no point keeping for late game either

                              DL 19 : Rod of Speed - Still bad success rate but this one I'll keep

                                Rod of speed fail rate is not particularly important. Most of the time you want to buff up before the fight begins, and even half a dozen extra turns doing it doesn't matter.
