In SpliceHack, Sharur is the dragonmaster quest artifact. When used or applied, it gives the player advice via a random rumor.

Sharur is also the name of a unique monster that can be created from the artifact.


Invoking Sharur produces the following message:

Sharur transforms into a glorious winged lion!

Sharur (the object) is removed from the player's inventory, and Sharur (the unique monster) is generated tame next to the player.


Invoking Sharur is a good option for players who already have a powerful quest artifact, since Sharur the monster is a relatively powerful pet. Dragonmasters may consider keeping it in weapon form, however, since by the time they reach the quest they likely will have already tamed several powerful pets.

Wishing for Sharur is usually a bad idea. Sharur is not particularly powerful, as far as quest artifacts go, and numerous better options exist if the player wants to wish for an artifact. Some players may choose to wish for Sharur for the purposes of a guaranteed pet, but wishing for a figurine of an archon is usually a better option.


Originally, Sharur would create a tame lamassu when invoked. The unique monster named Sharur was added in SpliceHack 1.0.0[1]
