Notes

You need 100 levels in fighting.melee.heavy-sword to wield Sarilak.

Sometimes, when you successfully hit someone with Sarilak, he will add an acid attack to your own attack. This can result in Sarilak killing them, instead of you killing them, but this doesn't seem to have any effect on xp gain.

Sarilak is an evil weapon: using him will make you more evil, and if you try to use him when you're too good, he may sometimes jump out of your hands.

Sarilak talks--he says various things during combat, when you equip him (exactly what seems to have some relationship to your fighting ability), or when you touch his blade. Touching Sarilak's blade ("touch [blade] [of] sarilak") will get you different messages depending on your alignment, and if you do this while evil enough (a few degrees is enough), you'll get the "Blackheart" post-title until you log out. If you do this while too good[1], the acid will burn you, doing some damage (which can be up to at least 187 hp).
