Ironman ranger help

I am slowing getting into late game with this ironman ranger, and I feel I need some advice to handle these depths that are unusual to me.
1) first concern is inventory space --- what can I safely ditch from my pack? I imagine one of Eowin and Aglarang should go, but which one?
2) what consumables should I be stockpiling now and I am not? Do I need to devote one inventory space to mushrooms of Vigor, for instance?
3) I am having great trouble with the shop spellbooks --- very few drop at these depths; I ran out of mb1, and have currently only one mb2. I seem to recall bron mentioning that it is a known issue that there are too few spellbooks in ironman games; do you confirm it? What can I do to get some more? Which monsters drop them in quantities?

Thanks!

LostTemplar is on a distinguished road
You probably want to stock as much ammo as possible. It is not good idea to fight Morgoth in melee in ironman, you will probably run out of consumables. Also I like to lug around at least one stack of damage dealing rods to use them as free ranged attack agains monsters I dont like to melee, in V rods are weak but may still be usefull.
