Avoid greater balrogs with ALL classes unless you have fire immunity. If you do fight one, use archery (or Meteor Swarm/Mana Storm). They are Hell on stuff in your pack.

Ditch the *thanc, CLW, and !Berserk. Keep !Hero til Cl 30. It's not really useful as a warrior. (As priest it's a different story.)

Tele level I always carry. If I get more than a handful I stash some, but a guaranteed escape with no endgame value has zero value unless you can actually use it when you need it.

You will be at one blow for a long time. It may be worth buying PB3 before going down, just to get Orb ASAP.

For pure damage, sling of Buckland (x4) <+2>, or good Haradrim with Holy Might ammo. Nothing else is close, unless you are playing a Ranger, where Bard or an x5 Lothlorien bow are even better.

Higher resists work at only 6/(6+1d6) reduction factor, so a resisted nexus breath can do up to 342 damage. I believe light and dark resist are somewhat better.

Angel pits and dragon pits. Even undead pits, especially with a MoD +2 attacks, rNether, and full sustains. Not demon pits. They have too many HP

If you have room keep them. They save about. 3 rounds combat each w Morgoth. Holy Might ammo (or Wounding/slay evil shot for sling) is likely more valuable.
