==Usage==
 +
Artifacts can be used to produce a magical effect:
 +
*A '''magic ring''' is used by wearing it and using '''twist''' with [[magic.items.worn.ring]].
 +
*A '''magic staff''' is used by holding it and using '''invoke''' with [[magic.items.held.staff]].
 +
*A '''magic wand''' is used by holding it and using '''zap''' at an appropriate target with [[magic.items.held.wand]].
 +
 +
Artifacts can of course also be used in mundane ways, as [[#Mundane properties|weapons]].

Artifacts are wizardly magical items that can be identified, recharged and used to obtain various effects.

See the list of pages about artifacts at Category:Artifact.

Usage

Artifacts can be used to produce a magical effect:

Artifacts can of course also be used in mundane ways, as weapons.

Arcane properties

Previous research by Mythica Demonwright and Bremen Demonwright provided the initial recharging and damage data. It might have been updated since then.

When an artifact explodes when recharging it deals backfire damage and it also releases thaums that seems to be the same amount as the hp lost.
