|Sonic Boom ( / )|
The lightning-etched boomerang "Sonic Boom" is a non-guaranteed artifact missile. It increases DV and PV by +5 and Dexterity and speed by +10 when equipped as a missile. It has a high chance to stun monsters damaged by it, generating the message "The <foo> is stunned by the thundering hit!" An Archer using the level 50 multi-hit power may stun multiple targets per attack.
It appears as a strange stick when unidentified, but can be distinguished from normal boomerangs by its unusual color in ASCII.
It is a very good item. It offers sizable bonuses in an equipment slot that normally doesn't offer any at all, deals good damage, and can be used to effectively stun-lock most monsters.
Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]
It can be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
