Amulet of greed ( ' )
Item Type Amulet
Artifact? No
Weight 3s
Danger Level 1
Material Iron

When worn, an amulet of greed will occasionally give messages indicating the presence of gold on the level. If there is one or more piles of gold on the level, the message "you sense the presence of gold." may appear. If there is a royal vault on the level, a message will occasionally appear depending on the B/U/C status of the amulet:

  • Blessed: "You suddenly feel the urge to get very rich really soon!"
  • Uncursed: "You suddenly feel a lust for gold!"
  • Cursed: "You suddenly feel the urge to steal!"


The only real use for these amulets is as "RNG fodder", which basically means you wear it in the hopes that the RNG will destroy it rather than some equipment you care about in the event of hitting a trap or rusting in water.
