Glad you learned a lot on this run. In my opinion, you were grinding entirely too much on a character that looked eminently winnable with some perseverance. 22 *healing* means you can exclusively use those in the final fight and still easily win.

If you're planning on sticking with Warrior until you win, I might try a faster-levelling class next time. Lucky personality is also great for the treasure and device-skill boosts, and usually equipment will more than cover the stat penalties by the late game.

I always carry a staff of destruction in my lategame kit so that I can blast awkward monsters like Nodens who can show up when I'm unprepared. Follow-teleport monsters are really bad _Destruction is also great at CL50 for nuking monsters that don't drop anything -- like hounds. So many hounds.
