Erm, re-reading this I noticed that I should probably explain it slighty
better, as it sounds above like I was trying to wield a corpse. :)

It should read:

...I saw a mobile I thought I could take wielding a really cool-looking
weapon.  I spent over an hour fighting it (flee, run back to healer, run
back, jump it again) until I finally managed to kill it.  I got the weapon
from the corpse and tried to wield it only to find that I was many levels
away from being able to use it.
