That's a powerful character. Detection from your helmet is fantastic at dl 33. As Estie said, if you need more detection, a staff of Detect Evil is a good backup. There are a few monsters you should...

With such a crappy main weapon, that Ring of Damage (+7) would really help. And your ring of rFire/rCold is doing you no good at all. Ring of Acid isn't much use. Ring of Lightning would help.

@gglibertine-
Raal's isn't worth carrying as a Ranger, either. Kelek's is worth carrying for a ranger: that is one of the three b8g avantages: shots, *destruction*, and Glyph of Warding.
