L/N/C/U = lawful/neutral/chaotic/unaligned, + means intelligent

If an artifact only lists damage values for +0 its damage after enchantment just adds the enchantment value.

If an artifact lists several enchantments, the enchantment value has a relationship to final damage that isn't one-to-one, e.g. double damage artifacts add enchantment twice, not once.

Lawful

  • [L+] +0 Excalibur (+d10 vs. all)
    • small: d8 + d10 = 2 / 10 / 18
    • large: d12 + d10 = 2 / 12 / 22
  • [L] Grayswandir (no skill bonus, 2x ench. dmg bonus vs. all)
    • +0
      • non-silver: 2(d8) = 2 / 9 / 16
      • silver: 2(d8) + d20 = 3 / 19.5 / 36
    • +7
      • non-silver: 2(d8 + 7) = 16 / 23 / 30
      • silver: 2(d8 + 7) + d20 = 17 / 33.5 / 50
  • [L+] Sceptre of Might (x2 ench. dmg vs. cross-aligned)
    • +0
      • resist
        • small: d6 + 1 = 2 / 4.5 / 7
        • large: d6 = 1 / 3.5 / 6
      • non-resist
        • small: 2(d6 + 1) = 4 / 9 / 14
        • large: 2(d6) = 2 / 7 / 12
    • +7
      • resist
        • small: d6 + 1 + 7 = 9 / 11.5 / 14

  • [L+] +0 Tsurugi of Muramasa (+d8 vs all, 5% instakill vs. small or x2 ench. dmg vs. large)
    • double damage is applied AFTER d8 bonus damage
    • double damage is applied AFTER enchantment and therefore must be handled similarly to multishot, i.e. separate calculations for each of min, avg and max, but only for large.
    • small: d16 + d8 = 2 / 13 / 24
    • large: d8 + 2d6 + d8 = 4 / 16 / 28

  • [N] Magicbane (+d4 vs. MR check, +d4 vs. all, +[0-3]d4 on good hit rolls or +[0-2]d4 if MR check failed)
    • damage values pulled from the wiki because special cases change damage distributions (see Magicbane#Damage)
    • +0
      • resist
        • small: d4 + d4 + [0-2]d4 = 2 / 4.86 / 16
