Version 0.28: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A small wrinkle in the very fabric of reality, magically bound to a shaft by some mad acolyte of Lugonu. It possesses an unusually large reach that teleports its attack directly to its victim.

Distortion brand
Range 3 reaching attack that is smite-targeted (bypasses intervening monsters, statues, and iron grates).

Desirability

Rift[1] has the advantage of being a highly-enchanted demon trident with a decent brand and the ability to reach 3 tiles while ignoring monsters in the way. Distortion may be tricky to work with, but its fairly strong, and the range defintely helps with the random blinking. As with other distortion weapons, Rift inflicts very dangerous effects on unwield (including banishment), with Lugonu worshippers being exempt. Regardless, Rift's powerful base type makes it a fairly strong weapon that you shouldn't need to unwield for the rest of the game, seeing use with spellcaster and melee builds alike.
