Amulet of clarity
|This amulet protects its wearer from some forms of mental confusion, including being berserked against one's will.|
The amulet of clarity grants the clarity intrinsic, protecting its wearer from unintentional berserking, being mesmerised, and most forms of confusion. This protection has limits, however; it cannot stop confusion caused by a god's divine retribution, and equipping it while confused will not immediately cure the condition (though it will prevent any attempts of extending your confusion).
As most of the things this amulet protects against are also blocked by high magic resistance, other amulets are usually better. However, it is good to wear in a number of situations:
- It is highly valuable for mummies, who have absolutely no means of curing confusion. This is particularly true in Hell, where one of the the ever-present Hell effects is MR-bypassing confusion.
- It is good to wear for melee characters who have berserkitis and cannot afford to go berserk.
- In a similar vein, it makes unrands such as Bloodbane and in particular the Sword of Jihad far more usable.
- It is a good option against particularly nasty or OOD uniques capable of confusing you, such as Rupert.
