two bits of advice:

1. ranger is imho the hardest class. They are ridiculously powerful when they hit level cap and have a x5 Lothlorien, but are pretty much useless until CL40, and really could benefit from the last few levels.
2. try playing with randarts on, it's a completely different experience.
(during character creation press = and select randarts->YES)

Ranger is 5he hardest class to start, sure. But it is the easiest to win with. Or it was before 4.2 introduced Single Combat...

Honestly, I may try randarts. I wanted to see a few more artifacts in the standard set before switching, I feel like I see very few relevant ones. Maybe after my second win I will try randarts. I tried a warrior to try seeing a few more artifacts that were relevant. He got further than any of my others, but died when returning to DL 97 with word of recall. The stairs were blocked by thuringwethil on one side, and a greater hell wyrm in a room and ancient multihued in the corridor on the other. I had the main gauche that gives fire immunity and slays dragons, so I figured I'd keep my distance from the wyrm so he couldn't hurt me, use a temporary speed boost to outspeed him, mash the Ancient Multihued with my dagger, then run for the exit. Turns out there was also a Greater Balrog also in front of the stairs. I decided here, rather than teleworking away, to try and shoot and scoot the hell wyrm and hope the Balrog didn't wake up, then consider how I get to the stairs. Naturally as a warrior, I woke it up. I still for some reason wanted to kill the wyrm, so I just used a banishment scroll for the Balrog. I was at 245/360, and the banishment scroll did 300 to kill me. Oops. I think the next attempt at actually winning will be a mage though. Reliable detection is nice.

@forenmagra--
That's what _Destruction and ?Teleport level are for. I carry them in preference to things like slow monster.

I left Destruction scrolls at home, and I find teleport level to be rare. I had the speed advantage due to a staff of speed though.

I didn't mean scroll of destruction. A staff of destruction will eliminate that kind of dangerous situation before it happens. And they're plenty common.
