The recharge spell seems risky - 2 of the 3 times I first tried it it destroyed the wand.

There are more recharge spells, I think the MB3 Lesser Recharging has higher chance to blow up the staff/wand than the scroll which you can buy.
Also the higher level the wand, the higher is the chance of being destroyed.

Yes. Lesser recharging only works on very low level items like staff of light. Use scroll or, better, recharge II spell in MB8. (MB8 is awesome for ranger and rogue, and very good for mage.)

What is MB8? Guess that was a mistake getting rid of the scrolls of recharge when I got the spell. Something else the game didn't make clear.

Another tradoff - found armor of Rohirrim which gives 50 more armor, 2 str and dex; compare to current with 3 stealth. But the stealth seems more useful.

Dungeon level 58, found gauntlets 'Paurnen' - but they seem useless, Racid, feather falling, 5d8 acid bolt.

Shelob, spider of darkness - 47k exp, don't expect that'd be feasible.

Finally a unique to try, Itangast the fire drake. Got him, with speed/slow and too many of my best arrows.

Dropped halberd 'Osondir' which doesn't look too useful, mainly good damage especially against undead and not resistant to fire, but as a ranger...

And a 'blade of chaos', minor damage upgrade and Rchaos, which is a new resist, but how useful?

Shelob isn't that tough. Beathes poison for 800 (has ~3000 HP, comparable to a Wyrm.) Big problem is aummons of spiders, which get in the way of archery attacks. Once you get a good enough bow, and Rune of Protection, you can knock of monsters like her with ease.

Sounds good. I tend to run out of arrows also. Too bad you can't get more with a spell.
