Will chaotic elves still be blasted? Good 'ol Chaotic Elven Male Wizard never does for me, and I seem to come upon Grimtooth often... Aeronflux 17:01, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

No. A non-intelligent artifact will only blast you if your alignment is wrong/negative, or if you are in the form of something that the artifact has a bonus against. Even though Grimtooth is orcish, it doesn't affect elves more than non-elves, so elves won't normally be blasted. -- Killian 03:28, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
You say that, but my elven wizard was just blasted when picking it up in 3.6.0 on nao, albeit only the first time. Attempting to weild it got a "You cannot handle your crude dagger called Grimtooth" and a blast. --Atomicjoy (talk) 15:57, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Does anyone know what Gimtooth references? It's, unfortunately, a name that shows up in a lot of fantasy, and I'm curious what its relationship to Elves is, other than a convenient exclusion that lets us guarantee Stormbringer. NeonKow (talk) 15:07, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
