The Orb of Fate is the valkyrie quest artifact. It is the prize for completing the Valkyrie quest. It is neutral for wishing purposes. Its base item type is a crystal ball. It is often called the Orb of Weight by some players due to its heavy weight, 150.

When carried, the Orb confers warning, half spell damage, half physical damage and acts as a luckstone. When applied, it acts as a crystal ball. When invoked, it activates level teleport.

If the Orb of Fate is blessed, carrying a blessed luckstone in open inventory is redundant and confers no additional luck benefit. Zapping a wand of enlightenment with the Orb of Fate will confirm that you "have extra luck".

When read, it gives this response:

 It is signed:  "Odin."

Encyclopedia entry

Some say that Odin himself created this ancient crystal ball,
although others argue that Loki created it and forged Odin's
signature on the bottom. In any case, it is a powerful
artifact. Anyone who carries it is granted the gift of
warning, and damage, both spell and physical, is partially
absorbed by the orb itself. When invoked it has the power
to teleport the invoker between levels.
