A damage ring is preferable in that spot, oddly enough, eventually to be replaced by elven rings when you find them. I can't imagine the situation where you wield the speed ring in the second slot.

You can chuck a lot out of your home also, pretty much every weapon there is obsolete with ringil in tow. What I don't see are ?banishment, ?banish, ?destruction ?deep-descent and ?teleport level. The first two you should be saving for the last battles. The last two should be your primary escape. ?teleport is borderline, you'll wind up in a room full of time hounds maybe once in 5000 teleports. So if you do it enough, you might wind up dead. _teleport is too risky now. You need better escapes! Make sure you carry around _destruction when you find it. Use it to remove monsters you don't want to fight yet. All these items would be far more useful to you than the artifact weapons you have there. I know there's a desire to keep them as trophies, but they show up in your history!
There are some ?Banishment and ?Mass Banishment on the floor, I'll bring them back to town. I'll drop the spare rings of speed. Is there no risk of ending up in the middle of some dangerous enemies (such as time hounds) when I use deep descent or teleport level? I am a bit skeptical about using deep descent as an escape, as I think it might land me in even worse monsters deeper in the dungeon. I try not to collect artifacts as trophies, but I am careful about junking them in case I might need them later. As I am a noobie I trust the judgement of the sages here over my own judgement when it comes to which artifacts to junk.
