I've long been under the impression that the golden girdle was unavailable in 1.1.1. The guidebook says that it is apperently unavailable. A quick check with the search function of this forum finds that every mention of 'Celestrix' in 2007 says that you can't get it in 1.1.1.

I just got it. And I'm using 1.1.1.

Unfortunately I don't have a scroll of greater identify on me so I have no idea what it's hidden abilities are but it's visible qualities are:

girdle of the emperors "Celestrix" [+13, +13] {Ch +8}

Is this old news or have I just gotten a highly unusual gift from Berwyn?

Just had a further look with the search function.

I'm not using a patch.

But I suspect it might be a highly useless artifact; dooming and it doesn't even raise my carrying capacity.

It could be that for some cheesy reason, Celestrix is just nigh impossible to get, a one in a billion thing. In that case, you just managed to be the one ;) Who cares that the artifact sucks if it got you this honor?

An artifact girdle that increases carrying capacity would certainly be one of the most coveted artifacts ever.

[+13, +13] is bloody brilliant. This is unprecedented though - it seems very strange to me that you could get this without the patch. I know it's stupid to ask, but it's definitely 1.1.1 you're playing?

Definetly 1.1.1, though I suppose it's possible that I'm using a patched version. I highly doubt it but is there a way to distinguish 1.1.1 from a patched version?

I saved and backed up the game immeadiately after getting the golden girdle so there's a save available for people who want it.

Drinking a blessed potion of insight while having nothing put the girdle equipped produces the following:

You are poison resistant (enhanced through an item)
You are doomed (gained through an item)
You are sleep resistant (gained through an item)
You are resistant to death rays (gained through an item)
You are able to see invisible things (gained through an item)
You are immune to shock attacks (gained through an item)

It also seems to regenerate wounds.

From :

The following changes were made:
* Monsters no longer reach as high experience levels.
* Monsters no longer fight in a blind rage.
* Artifacts available in a game are now random like they're supposed to be.
* The 'skilled' talents no longer crash the game
(Their effects are twice what's listed in the manual though,
this hasn't been changed.)

So, do the 'skilled' talents crash the game for you?

And here is the patch author's bug report about the artifacts: the game was apparently supposed to randomly choose some artifacts to be unavailable, but in fact it always chooses LFG and Celestrix and several other artifacts (which are sometimes still available via crowning).

If anyone plays Adom v. 1.2 don't even try putting Celestrix on. It has hidden properity that "makes" you like a emperor yourself. After a while it drains 8 points of random statistic in exchange for 8 charisma. It's isn't written anywhere and i already lost my very promising charecter by this. When i realized my stats changed (i was saccing for 2 precrown) i had +24 charisma -16 To and - 8 Le. As usefull as black tome i guess.

Well, THAT IS WONDERFULL NEW WAY TO SCUM FOR ATTRIBUTES. Just use potion of exhance, heps,corpses,crystals and carrot juise to keep enough points while raising one attribute to heavens. After, when Your other stats are at 25 use exhance equip all -ap stuff, amulet of cold heard, ring of weakness remove artifact drink blessed potions of balance untill you get no change and voila extream stats without single attribute potion
