    So I found an artifact-variant of a Metal Orby Staff, which can be used to craft a Jingly Jangly Staff of Crystals or a Staff of Immaculate Conceptualization...

    Question is: What happens to the artifact effects or even the artifact status if I do this?

    Does the newly crafted item keep the same artifact bonuses? WIll it even be an artifact?

    The item's properties will be totally replaced with those of the new item.

    So removes the artifact status, got it. Thanks!
  4. I suppose if I were an artifact I'd resent being used as spare parts, and wouldn't pass on any of my powers. Unless I were particularly noble. Most of the Dredmor artifacts don't look very noble.
