I find it kind of humorous how each run-through has a different wave of magic items. I remember my first run I kept coming across Troll belts, minor ring of protection, and minor cape of protection. And that trader guy tried to sell me three Rimecutters.
Then my next run I couldn't come up with any of those (except maybe where sold) but I couldn't sneeze without coming across those Constitution +3 belts and the ring that add +10% area of effect.
Another game was all about the amulet of health.
My latest run seems to be all about Shimmering capes and Belts of Mortal Protection. Right now I've got four of each in my stash and using one of the belts. This time I never found a ring of minor deflection before I found a ring of deflection.
