Grotug is on a distinguished road
Hobbit Ranger

So I've tired of the HT Warrior and trying Hobbit Ranger again. So far so good! I'm on DL31 and haven't had any really close calls. I bought a bow of power in the shop and am wearing a ring of the mouse because the damage is the same as a ring of slaying. Stealth is Superb which is just fantastic for controlling who I kill and who I avoid. Now I am at the first vault of my adventure (lesser) and don't really know the best strategy. Hopefully I can clear the vault one bad guy at a time, though Vargo, Tyrant of Fire is here. I may ignore him and hit the rest of the vault, but surely he is sitting on the 9 feeling item.

EDIT: Well, much to my surprise, Vargo remained asleep as I was going around clearing the vault and I happened upon a wand of TO and walked right up to him and sent him away while he was still asleep. I did this without rFire, too, since I found a <+3> speed armor that I put on in place of my robe of permanence on my way to Vargo. Inside he was keeping watch o'er a RoS <+8>.

EDIT: Well, I destroyed part of a greater vault when I couldn't go down the long open corridor with Dracolich waiting at the other end. So I tunneled around the side using a spell in a book and read a scroll of destruction to take out the Dracolich. I was one square closer than I needed to be. I destroyed the artifact gloves as well that he was guarding. No matter, I picked up 3 rods of TO and two wands of TO and one more <+5> INT bonus item while foraging the rest of the vault. So my SP is at 245, just need some CON now. I'm CL34 and have 232HP. :O
