YACD - more than one ring of speed?
 
I just cleared a "superb" level at 3250', and found among other things several rings of speed. At the moment I am wearing a +11 and have two +9 in the inventory. I also found 10 artifacts on this level, and even though I plan on leaving Camlost and Mormegil on the floor, I have too few slots to bring back both the artifacts, the rings of speed and my usual set of consumables. Is there any point in bringing back a RoS +9? Will I ever be using two RoS? Should I leave any of the non-cursed artifacts?

I also have a problem with an "overflow" of {ego} items: I brought four staves of identify, found several ? of identify in the dungeon, but ran out of charges so that I couldn't identify every {ego} item. What kind of system does the more experienced player use to determine what ego items they should id, and what they should junk?

I don't have time to look at your actual gear. But here are my thoughts:

1. I would probably save the two best speed rings I've found so far, in case I have a heard time getting speed. Maybe with Ringil this is less of an issue for you.

2. Have you been wielding the egos? At this point you probably only care about egos which are splendid, so that's an easy way to weed a bunch of other egos out without having to cast identify.

3. Even though it's tough to leave artifacts behind, I try to not bother carrying artifacts which I'm never going to conceivably need.

No I was not aware of that feature (just goes to show how much of a noobie I am).

Yes, but usually I get so few artifacts that I can carry them back to town and sort them there.

You have no need for any weapon except azaghal for fire immunity swap. Keep thorin, gondor and azaghal. As for speed, you are already stacked in that department. You have +9 boots, ringil (which you'll probably wield vs sauron and morgoth), and +9 DSM of speed. You do not need to be wearing a speed ring at all with this gear! A damage ring is preferable in that spot, oddly enough, eventually to be replaced by elven rings when you find them. I can't imagine the situation where you wield the speed ring in the second slot.

You can chuck a lot out of your home also, pretty much every weapon there is obsolete with ringil in tow. What I don't see are ?banishment, ?banish, ?destruction ?deep-descent and ?teleport level. The first two you should be saving for the last battles. The last two should be your primary escape. ?teleport is borderline, you'll wind up in a room full of time hounds maybe once in 5000 teleports. So if you do it enough, you might wind up dead. _teleport is too risky now. You need better escapes! Make sure you carry around _destruction when you find it. Use it to remove monsters you don't want to fight yet. All these items would be far more useful to you than the artifact weapons you have there. I know there's a desire to keep them as trophies, but they show up in your history!

Annoyingly there is Elessar in his findings, which means he can now use two rings for whatever he needs, but that also means lack of disen resist, which as we can see from Cambeleg damage, is a problem for him.

Gondor would solve problem with missing important resists, but it doesn't have ESP. He actually needs that Elven ring for "perfect" gear (though this is already good enough to beat Morgoth, he only lacks consumables).

A damage ring is preferable in that spot, oddly enough, eventually to be replaced by elven rings when you find them. I can't imagine the situation where you wield the speed ring in the second slot.

You can chuck a lot out of your home also, pretty much every weapon there is obsolete with ringil in tow. What I don't see are ?banishment, ?banish, ?destruction ?deep-descent and ?teleport level. The first two you should be saving for the last battles. The last two should be your primary escape. ?teleport is borderline, you'll wind up in a room full of time hounds maybe once in 5000 teleports. So if you do it enough, you might wind up dead. _teleport is too risky now. You need better escapes! Make sure you carry around _destruction when you find it. Use it to remove monsters you don't want to fight yet. All these items would be far more useful to you than the artifact weapons you have there. I know there's a desire to keep them as trophies, but they show up in your history!

There are some ?Banishment and ?Mass Banishment on the floor, I'll bring them back to town. I'll drop the spare rings of speed. Is there no risk of ending up in the middle of some dangerous enemies (such as time hounds) when I use deep descent or teleport level? I am a bit skeptical about using deep descent as an escape, as I think it might land me in even worse monsters deeper in the dungeon. I try not to collect artifacts as trophies, but I am careful about junking them in case I might need them later. As I am a noobie I trust the judgement of the sages here over my own judgement when it comes to which artifacts to junk.

Congratulations, you have identified the problem known as TMJ (too much junk). To get around this there are at least 2 solutions.

One: test wield as what d_m said and set squelch to splendid, however this is still relatively slow.

Two: start destroying items on the floor except for items that are potentially useful. You can create a macro 099k-ay which will destroy the top item in a stack. Its unlikely you will be doing too much shooting given your melee damage output, though you may want to test wield and identify excellent ammo. As artifacts cannot be destroyed by macros, this is a safe technique.

For you that means all weapons except blade of chaos, scythe of slicing, and mace of disruption, unidentified ego cloaks, and high DSMs (e.g. law/chaos/psuedo etc.) if you really care, boots, as boots of speed +10 are ever so slightly better than what you have. Basically any weapon that provides a serious boost in damage compared to Ringil to either evil, undead, dragons, demons, or giants may be worth keeping. As Ringil is so good with +10 speed, the damage output must be a large increase. I would keep zarcuthra (dragons) and azaghal.

There's little difference between dungeon level 65 and dungeon level 99 as far as difficulty. The only real difference is more uniques, the standard denizens don't get much more difficult.

When you change levels by either recall, stairs, teleport level or deep descent you get the first move. So if you land in a room full of hounds, you have the option of escaping immediately. (another ?teleport level, ?deep descent, or ?*destruction will work.) Don't use anything that has more than 0% chance of fail when failure means death! You will not get the first move after ?teleport, so if you teleport into a room full of hounds, they get to breathe first. Make sure you have ESP and you can always know if you're in immediate dagner. 8 time hound breaths will kill a 1000 HP character at full health. Gravity hounds are the second biggest threat, then Chaos and Plasma hounds. However, you probably can survive everything but time and maybe gravity. Even worse than ?teleport is _teleport, which has a 3-4% fail on top of the fact that you won't get the first move after teleporting. _teleport is a great early escape because you can use it when blinded and confused, but once you have rblind and rconf, you've essentially outgrown it and should trade it for more reliable escapes.

You can squelch all but artifacts, and save yourself the destruction thing, but you will need to maintain a free slot for autopickup to work. You can also tune that to all but boots and ammo. Currently, including 320, you notice whether an item is an artifact immediately when you pick it up. If you autoinscribe things you want to id, such as blades of chaos, with !k they will not squelch until you uninscribe them.

Less if you get unlucky by CON-drain by few of them and you don't have big buffer for it (but I assume you already counted that because 8 x time hound breath is about 880 points of damage). Even if it doesn't kill you you might be in big trouble after that because of stat-drains.

Time hounds are different to other hounds in that they move at speed +20, not +10.
