I went straight to that person, but they didn't even have anything better than some yellow items. I then went and checked every NPC in town and none of them had any artifacts.
So, I think sometimes they still say things that aren't true anymore.
That happened to me too! In fact two people in the same town said two other people had artifact weapons for sale but when I went to them, there were none but rares. I did notice a 'visiting' weaponsmith said "I have the sword named "xxx" but I'm not selling it. I do have some good weapons for sale though." No one in town had mentioned him! At this time I wonder if I had killed him, would I have gotten that weapon?
Speaking of odd things, has anyone gotten a quest to kill 5, yes 5 big bosses in one level of a dungeon? They were all bunched together like they'd just had a meeting of bad minds and who and when they'd attack the town. Not unlike the "Godfather" movie.
I had to lure them out one by one, got killed by one of them and it took a lot of running around to get the soulstone back before trying to attack again!
