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...

Wait, angband no longer has a giant case statement for spellcasting. It does call by name (m9re ore less) using generated code from a .h file. You must be running off an older codebase.

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.)

Yes. You are hitting a wall because your bow sucks. It is about the weakest possible bow you could have--essentially an enchanted longbow. A longbow of power would be doing about 50% more damage. An...

Undead are a bad choice for melee in any case, with lots of nasty side effects. Just avoid them, or use your bow. You should have a modest stash of ego ammo by now. (And you will be able to make your...
