Oh yeah. A death knight at CL 26 is plenty dangerous, especially with a low-HP character like a half-elf ranger. (Also: half-elf is seriously weak.) They have a ferocious nether bolt spell. Also: fighting invisible monsters without SI is a huge waste of resources. And unlimited use of _TS is pretty much a guarantee of death.

There will be other vaults--and much better than the puny things you found.

As for what you are doing wrong: you are fighting too many monsters. Detect often, avoid often, and keep your powder dry for worthwhile foes. And you are not going deep enough. DL 29 is the very worst level you could spend time on, unless the object level feeling is very high: DL 30 is where most stat potions are native, so they are much more common even just one level deeper.
