Angelslayer is an artifact weapon that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. It is unaligned, and its base item is a trident made of iron.


In addition to random generation, Angelslayer can appear as a sacrifice gift for characters of all alignments.

A balrog has a 120 chance of generating with Angelslayer.


While wielded, Angelslayer confers automatic searching and half spell damage, and warns the wielder of any angelic beings. Angelslayer deals +1d10 bonus damage to non-fire resistant monsters and +1d5 to fire resistant ones - major demons are completely immune. Additionally, Angelslayer has a 110 chance of instantly killing any angelic being it hits.

Angelslayer can be combined with either The Eye of Vecna or The Hand of Vecna at a forge to create The Sword of Annihilation.

Encyclopedia entry

An artifact trident that warns of Angels, confers automatic
searching and half-spell damage, and does extra fire damage
to targets that are susceptible. Rumor has is that demons,
especially Balrogs, are fond of this weapon.
