I'm not sure how to edit this in the table, but isn't Nighthorn two-handed, like other unihorns?


As for strategy, it seems to me that the non-lawfuls who are most likely to find it useful are Tourists and Healers who are desperate for some source of reflection for their quests. Unihorns may be the best weapons they can get at that point anyway. You'd need a way to uncurse it and some enchantment scrolls to burn, though. I don't speak from experience, though (except for how important reflection is in the Tourist quest if you don't have MR yet). Slandor 03:25, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

It is two-handed, which actually provides an excellent way to uncurse it, since having a cursed two-handed weapon is considered a major trouble by your god. As for the table, I'll look for it, but I suspect 1H vs 2H is a parameter called 'size' or something similar.
Oh, and I very much agree with your points on strategy. I would also add that priests and archaeologists might find it useful as well, particularly if they're playing those as spellcasters, who can't wear a shield usefully anyway (particularly not a shield of reflection!). -Ion frigate 03:59, June 23, 2010 (UTC)


This is also a artifact in Dnethack. You get it by killing Nightmare in the Chaos Quest. When it dropped for me it was a -2 artifact unicorn horn. I don't know if it has the same properties as in Slash'em or if it just has the same name. Wolfwood (talk)
