Deluder is an artifact cloak of displacement in SLASH'EM. In addition to the normal effects of cloaks of displacement, it confers stealth when worn and acts as a luckstone when carried. It is the guaranteed second sacrifice gift for Wizards.


As a cloak of displacement, Deluder only provides MC 2. That limits its usefulness, as most wizards will prefer the MC 3 granted by their starting cloak of magic resistance. Its best use is probably as a substitute luckstone for wizards who find an early altar. A character who gets Deluder might as well keep it in preference to an ordinary luckstone: it weighs the same, but will provide a modest score bonus when you ascend.

Overall, this artifact mostly serves to make it more difficult for Wizards to sacrifice for a high-damage artifact weapon.
