Sol Valtiva is an artifact weapon that appears in dNetHack. It is the signature weapon of Lord Surtur, the Valkyrie quest nemesis. It is chaotic and favors fire giants, and its base item is a two-handed sword made of obsidian.


Sol Valtiva is not randomly generated and cannot be wished for. It is always created in the possession of Lord Surtur when he is generated on the goal level of the Valkyrie quest.


Sol Valtiva provides +1d5 to-hit, deals +1d24 extra fire damage against monsters without fire resistance, and can be applied to pound like a polearm. On hit, it has a 14 chance of causing an explosion dealing 6d6 fire damage, a 13 chance of blinding targets, and shines bright light on struck targets that petrifies most trolls and instantly kills gremlins and hunting horrors by turning them to dust. Both the fire damage it does and the fiery explosions can destroy the target's potions, scrolls, and spellbooks and burn armor in open inventory.

While carried, Sol Valtiva confers fire resistance, and while wielded it also acts as a light source.
