Amulet of Cekugob
|A strange-looking piece of crystal on an ordinary-looking string, with an odd selection of powers.|
the amulet of Cekugob
Most characters will find this amulet useful, but only as a switch. It provides two levels of negative energy resistance, and thus can quickly render you drain-resistant if you find yourself looking down a shadow dragon's maw, and electricity resistance is fantastic when facing Nikola, storm dragons, or an electric golem. Don't leave it on, though; the -TELE can sometimes cost you your life.
