If you're playing a class that does not melee, then slays become meaningless and you now become interested in other bonuses that the weapon provides.

Rangers get extra shots using a bow that they don't get using a sling or crossbow. I believe it is one extra shot per turn at level 20 and 2 extra shots at level 40.

A staff of teleport has a nonzero failure rate so isn't fully reliable when you are facing imminent death. A scroll will always take you somewhere else if you are not blind or confused.
