The '''Sword of Jihad''' can be very useful if you can manage the [[berserkitis]]. Clarity is the best means of doing so, either through the amulet or through being an [[Ashenzari]] worshiper. (However, Ashenzari worshipers should note that this sword cannot be cursed because it's holy.) Given all the other useful intrinsics it provides, this weapon may even be worth using for a character who has to nerf the berserkitis via an [[amulet of clarity]]: just switch to [[resist mutation]] as needed, and keep a backup weapon just in case.
If you happen to have much skill in [[Summonings]] or have any other sources of generating allies ([[the Shining One]]'s angelic reinforcements, for instance), you may find this weapon even more desirable, as going berserk will berserk your allies as well. This will vastly increase their combat performance, and they'll likely stay berserk long after you've returned to normal.
Prior to [[0.15]], the sword of Jihad had a +12, +10 enchantment bonus. Stealth penalty was -20 instead of -50.
Prior to [[0.14]], it did not allow you to berserk allies.
