Fendell Orcbane is on a distinguished road
Risk assessment skills...

So I found a crazy vault full of some scary monsters and uniques that were way more powerful than my character. A few months ago I would have most likely just left it alone...however now? I just had to see if I could raid the sucker. Lucky for me it was mostly constructed of permanent walls. So even monsters that could bore through rock couldn't harm me unless I either moved so that they could go through the few patches of normal rock or I tunneled in through said rock. Hell I even opened up a passage with three time hounds...and I teleported them away before they breathed time. I did get jammed up with a vampire lord and a master vampire with 4 black reavers nearby...but again the permanent rock and a *destruction scroll* saved the day. I got four artifacts out of the deal...all of them useful. Thorin,Isildur, Carlammas and the star of Elendil( well I guess three good artifacts). I've also been diving with little fear the whole game, now part of this is because I'm playing a warrior...you can't play a mage like that in my admittedly limited experience. I guess what I'm asking is have the rest of you found that you are more willing to take risks the longer you have played the game? Or is it just me?

And here is my character who gained almost 300 hps from the artifacts in that vault. Any suggestions for what I should be using would be welcome. I think I have a good kit going but who knows?

Swap Isildur to Caspanion and use that Ring of Acid instead of RoRPoison.

Also, Eorlingas is heavy, so you are restricted to 5 blows with it. I think Orome would be better. That +4 to speed will help also. As long as you are not hasted it gives you ~27% damage increase alone: energy 15 - 19. With haste it is a bit less (16%), but moving nearly at speed +10 is much better than moving at +5.

i'm glad I didn't sell Orome. I was actually considering using Orome...but Eorlingas does a lot a damage : ) I'll swap the gear on my next trip down and let you know how it goes : ) Thanks.

Fast calc:

Orome normal vs Eorlingas slay evil

1.27 * 6/5 * 55.1 vs 86
= 83.9 vs 86

With acid+fire brands it is clear winner against most, and those that are not vulnerable to either and are evil are very rare (beholders, AMHD, GWoMC, some uniques).

There is one caveat in swapping Caspanion and Isildur: you lose rNexus. Avoid Nexus Hounds and Vortices, Greater Basilisks and Dracolisks like plague after that. With Warrior saving throw stat-scrambling is a real danger. Luckily nexus breathers are relatively rare (nexus vortices are maybe most difficult to avoid).

I actually did think about the nexus thing before I went to bed...its too risky IMO. I have no way of detecting a nexus vortex...other than it hitting me.

I still think +4 speed in Orome is worth using it instead of Eorlingas, even that you lose a bit damage. Speed just makes living easier.

I did switch Eorlingas out for Orome. I just swap with Firestar when I see firebreathers.

A couple other pieces of advice:

Code:
 
 HP     642/642      Maximize         Y   CON:     16  +1  +2 +17 18/180
Be nice to the RNG, so that it will give you some CON potions.

Code:
t) 19 Bolts of Acid (1d5) (+10,+17)
     Branded with acid.
     Cannot be harmed by acid.
Save these and a quality crossbow for Sauron, if you can. Also, be on the lookout for slay evil and holy might ammo.

Code:
     
c) a Potion of Life
     It can be thrown at creatures with damaging effect.
You should be stashing these (and !*Healing*) at home for the final fight(s). They're at risk in your inventory.

Code:
g) a Scroll of Mass Banishment
Something else to save for the final fight.

Code:
     
p) The Leather Shield of Celegorm [4,+20]
     Provides resistance to acid, lightning, fire, cold, light, dark, 
     blindness.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
     
q) The Set of Gauntlets 'Paurnen' (+4,+4) [3,+14]
     Provides resistance to acid.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
     Feather Falling.
You are unlikely to use these, except possibly Celegorm late in the game for big darkness storm casters.

Code:
     
r) The Set of Gauntlets 'Pauraegen' [3,+14]
     Provides resistance to lightning, light.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
There is the off-chance that you'll use these; some artifact kits will have rElec holes.

Code:
s) The Bastard Sword 'Calris' (5d4) (-6,+20) (+5)
     +5 constitution.
     Slays evil creatures, demons, trolls.
     *Slays* dragons.
     Provides resistance to disenchantment.
     Cannot be harmed by acid, electricity, fire, cold.
     Aggravates creatures nearby.  
     
     Combat info:
     5 blows/round.
     With an additional 1 strength and 0 dex you would get 6 blows
     With an additional 0 strength and 1 dex you would get 6 blows
     Average damage/hit: 72.7 vs. evil creatures, 86.2 vs. demons, 86.2
     vs. trolls, 113.2 vs. dragons, and 59.2 vs. others.
You may want to carry this around as a swap for killing dragons, when the surroundings are safe for aggravation. Getting the sixth blow and enchanting it up to a decent plus to-hit are important.

Thanks for taking the time to write all of this stuff. I've pretty much followed all the advice that you have given except I might dump Calris so I can store more consumables in my home : ) I already dumped the crappy gauntlets you mentioned: ) I think I might have sold Celegorn as well.

Don't sell Calris unless you must. It is one of the endgame-quality items and resistance to disenchantment is valuable. Quite a few monsters deep in dungeon disenchant in melee or by breath. You could use it as swap if you don't like aggravation.
