I can only seem to get 2 blows with the troll priest. With only one blow isn't it best to go for the biggest weapon available? Unless there's another benefit to light weapons that I'm unaware of. As for shovels, they're very worth it when you can't sell, at least for the early game.

I neglected to mention that I spend my hard earned cash on phase door and !c*w, and buy ?toDam for the bow when I can afford it. Perhaps ?toHit would be a better idea?

Also, I assume that in general it's better to shoot than to melee. But maybe I should shoot for an enchanted war hammer?
