Desirability

The trident of the Octopus King[1] is an excellent weapon if you find it early on, as it carries a decent brand, three useful resistances, and solid enchantments. Unfortunately, its damage output is a little low for the late game, and its brand is useless against demons and undead. Even so, it's a decent swap item if you suddenly find yourself suddenly in dire need of electricity or magic resistance.

Although it's unlikely to make a major difference, each ring of the Octopus King you wear while wielding this trident increases its enchantment by +2, up to a theoretical (but extraordinarily unlikely) maximum of +24.

History

  • Prior to 0.19, the bonus from the rings of the Octopus King was +1 each.
  • Prior to 0.15, the trident of the Octopus King had an enchantment of +10, +4, and rings of the Octopus King had no effect upon it.
