Only weakness is your main weapon. (Nice as that bow is, it doesn't do a lot of damage.) 350 dam/turn vs. Evil is poor. You can get it to 455 with a nice +15 damage ring though. With that, you could kill M.

I already found Broad Sword that had +5 to speed and almost all stats, every goddamn slaying brand you could hope for.

Of course it was 2d5 (+11, +6)

Yeah, that bow has a silly amount of resists. It's true, though, not a lot of dam, but the <+5> STR could be very good for your melee business when you find a better weapon.

Set up for Morgy now. Over 1000 HP and 471 dmg vs evil weapon (with 3 more DEX points it would reach about 500) and presumably enough healing. Still holes in sound and nether resistance. Carcharoth, Huan and probably Kronos are in no-fight list at the moment. Tarrasque wont have a flipping chance to get me use a single consumable unless he breaths disint every other turn. Feagwath has such a big spell list that I would be surprised if he will ever get the chance of manastorming more than once.

EDIT: Now several hours later this ironman dwarf is 99,5% won already. Should just dive to Sauron now. He won't be able to kill me no matter what. That 0,5% chance of death is reserved for Morgy fight. Next update is either win post or the most-embarrassing-YASD-in-my-life-counting-all-roguelike-games-ever post.

Very nice. I like that you have two sources of mana restore activation and 40 potions of restore mana. You sure are playing it safe! I woulda gotten it done already. :P

If you find a really good long bow or xbow are you going to swap it out for your current bow? If you find one I'd probably drop the RoS <+11> and keep the better bow as a swap for pelting Morgy and/or sauron: it'd be nice to put those HM bolts/arrows to good use with an equally good box/xbow.

Even though you have an excess of resources to win the game, never be too confident as misjudgments can happen at anytime and letting your guard down and getting double shotted can as well. But, yah, with your kit and 27 base speed, seems hubris is the only thing that can bring you down now.

Those last few points of CON would save you 50% of healing costs. You have to heal above 600HP in case of failures, so another 175HP would make for a lot more melee between heals. Except never mind, you have a ridiculous stack of potions so you won't even need the spell.

I got the ironman bagged. Thanks for all the helpful advice!

EDIT:
I like to listen records on repeat over and over while playing roguelikes. Soundtrack for this win was pretty apropos if you think about the album titles:

Early game: Louder Than Bombs - The Smiths
Midgame: The Power To Believe - King Crimson
Endgame: Stormbringer - Deep Purple
