Use Fire/Cold while fighting red and white young dragons and the like, until you find armor or shield of resistance, or other similar item. (It won't be long.) But Free Action is much more important...

This is pretty broken, I agree. If you are going to use deadliness, you really need to make the base damage higher, since angband monsters tend to have more HP than O monsters. Or you need to make...

The drunks are, as are the lepers. No damage, and no stealing. The One is so rare it is almost a requirement to wear it. The Crown is meaningless, since if you have it, you already won.

Or just !*, which is a generalized 'prompt before use' instruction. This is what I mostly use instead of all the specific ones.

The way 5 works to my knowledge is it picks current target if one exists, but prompts for a new one if one doesn't. This is perfect behavior, as far as I am concerned. It may only work in roguelike...
