How does Nethack count artifacts for the purpose of wishing and gifting? Is it artifacts in existence or artifacts generated? So, for example, would there be any benefit to polymorphing or otherwise destroying artifacts to increase the chance to get other artifacts? -208.97.245.235 00:13, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Generated. Destroying an artifact will not help anything. -- Qazmlpok 01:16, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
The invocation items don't count, but your quest artifact does. Some people do their artiwishing right before they enter the quest goal level for that reason. --217.253.229.153 09:38, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
