This is listings for uniques and semi-unique weapons and armours. For design documents items see the relevant page.

See Special Items for things that aren't quite uniques, but have special properties.

Uniques are items which are unusually powerful or have other special qualities (such as boosting stats). They are called unique because, in many cases, there can be only one in existence at a time. For example, if a player is already using Elvenheart, you will not be able to acquire a second Elvenheart until the previous one has been destroyed through some means. "Semi" refers to uniques there can be more than one instance of, though still limited in quantity (black robe, for example).

Uniques can be destroyed deliberately by a player. They can also disappear on their own if they are unused for a period of time. This reduces hoarding of powerful items by players who are not using them. They have a cumulative lifespan which, per in-game boards, can be restored with active use.

NOTE ON KEEPINK: Some of the items below might be disproved as being unique by the new NPC Keepink. Please do not remove the entry completely if that happens. Instead we should investigate if the amount of versions or items is really limited and consider moving it to Special Items instead.

Axe

Currently no (one handed) axe uniques.

Club

The Big Un

Seems to be a non-unique version and a unique version. Unique version varies to your skill. Unknown beyond that knowledge

The Destructor

+1 Dex for Dwarves, evals better for Dwarves.

Krakadoom

Can "wave warhammer at opponent" for a shock attack, no sps but has recharge time ~ 30 seconds.

Onix, Horn of Power

15-20 Skill, Average Damage, Poor Parry. Gives strange healing bonuses, seems to have chance of 1hp/1sps(maybe more?) per round when fighting enemies of equal or higher level.

Stone Smasher Maul

+1 Strength

Hammer of Gralain

Does extra damage against orcs.

Curved Blade

Andellen's Wrath

Two handed. Bonus hits vs. humans, hurts humans that try to wield it. Seems to do more damage when wielded by elves.

Blade of Sethic

Two handed curved blade. Damage/parry/protection/ etc depends on the runes you activate. Works better for elves.

After attaching the green gem dagger to the Blade of Sethic, you can unleash it's power by activating the runes. There are six runes, one inscribed on each emerald. You recognise them as ancient elven runes, and are just able to recognise their names. In order, they are: 'Pararan', 'Gaialcir', 'Elencir', 'Elbelle', 'Ulgaiar' and 'Edelia'.

Each of these runes correspond to the abilities associated below, in order:

Pararan: This rune is in the shape of a three-armed spiral. You understand that it means something vaguely akin to 'power'.

Gaialcir: This rune is a circle pierced by two lines that originate within the circle. You think it has something to do with 'pain'.

Elencir: Two parallel lines crossed by a third line form this rune, which you think means something similar to 'skill'.

Elbelle: This rune is triangle inscribed in a circle and you think it means 'protection'. -- Gives magic resistance

Edelia: This rune appears to be two inverted triangles side by side. It means something akin to 'immunity'. -- gives poison resistance

You must "activate" these runes using their Elvish names. They do wear off and recharge over time.

Draqisfang

A scimitar when wielded by Masrur, Draqisfang will transform into the most appropriate weapon type for its current wielder (based on the highest skill of its current wielder, excluding marksmanship and unarmed. and is always called "The Sacred <weapon>, Draqisfang". Evaluates around moderately difficult and is generally unremarkable, although the knife form is a good rogue secondary and, as knives go, is pretty decent to wield as a primary weapon. The staff form is two-handed. If highest skills are equal then it will transform into whichever of the skills comes first alphabetically - so for 1700 characters, it's always an axe.

The Eagle Talon

Has a bonus for Parry and Block. One handed. Weighs 4, but you must also have the talisman (weighs 1) to wield it. Requires 1 million xp to wield

Flamberge, the flame sword

Changes to suit the wielder's skill. Switches between flame attacks and normal. Better vs. bigger things, dragons specifically. If it feels you're attacking a worthy opponent, it will advise you which body part to aim at. From Sand Dragon area.

Merklyn closes his eyes and touches Linguafacilis, the great helm.
Merklyn says in an eerie voice:

  from the desert city of Drakhiya. Grim... something. Grimtusk. Yes, General
  Humrus Grimtusk.

to get back: s, e, d, n, e, n, u, enter rubble, 3e, u, 2e, stand, e, ne, 6e, s, 2e, 21s.

The Shroud of Gustanado

Weight changes from 0-10 along with its eval from poor-AP.

  1. When worn, Shroud weighs 0.
  2. When NOT worn, I -think- Shroud weighs 4. Meaning, when you go from grabbing it (unworn), then switch to wearing it, you're given the false notion of being able to carry more.
  3. Shroud does NOT give extra carrying capacity, it's simply weightless when worn.
  4. The wind emotes do nothing, but alert you of it's blocking powers withering. Starts absolutely perfect in the beginning of a fight and progressively falls to poor, then regenerates and starts at AP again.
  5. There is a UNIQUE Shroud, which possesses a command called "evacuate", in which overwrites your wimpy, allowing you to wimpy with no xp loss. The downside to this is, you must preprogram it to flee in a certain direction, which you can do before every fight.
Spiked gauntlets

occasionally gives substantial damage increase (can also take on bonuses of brass knuckles).

Spiked shield

small damaging random special.

A petrified oak amulet

('Amulet of the Order'), from Drakon Encampment. Shapeshifters can wear this regardless of what form they are in. Examine the amulet when worn for a clue about your progress in that form. The sun and moon indicate time, skull and claw are for experience. The colour progression is: glowing barely, dull red, red, orange, dull yellow, bright yellow, green, pulsing blue, blinding violet, bright white. Note that 'bright white' means you are in the final phase, but not necessarily at the goal for time/exp yet.

A spidermedallion

+2 int
