What if you find SMSo Thorin? (Though it should be The Oaken Shield of Thorin.)

As for rings: Speed is just plain better than +STR; DEX is useless; for rPois, generally use an Amulet or Caspanion until the end of the game. For a little stat boost at the end of the game, Rings of Power and Tulkas are the only choices.

EDIT: PS: Use Sting! You get more damage and more speed.

The famed oaken shield of Thorin was just a tree branch.

The famed oaken shield was just a tree branch Thorin used after losing his actual shield.

Trip 5 to dlvl 75 killed Ulfang and got boots speed +4, now carrying boots stability as swap. Trip 6 killed Uvatha and got FPA Isildur (later stashed and picked up Sting), then Saruman in a three round battle (he teleports) and got battle axe Lotharang (sold). Well ****! There was also a troll pit - easy loot! Trip 7 was another troll pit which yielded a third staff of the magi - upon recall stashed two and sold ring acid. Trip 8 there was a white dragon pit which yielded two ! experience for promotion to clvl 40 @981171 turns, HP663 when wield BAoBS, SP317, AC152 with prayer, speed +14 burden 119%, ! str to 18/133, hitting BAoBS 4@42.5+ or Sting 6@28.5+ or Taratol 4@36.5+, shooting with a heavy crossbow of extra might 1@270 enchanted ammo. Ready to recall @983466 turns with 6553 killed and 96k for promotion. I am going down slowly to level 98, working pits and vaults plus killing easy unique monsters along the way. I should be near level 50 by the time I get there. Character dump is attached.

Don't measure weapons by "normal" damage--measure them by what they are good at killing.

Sting isn't 6@28.5, it's 6@32 (192) vs just about everything. And Taratol is 4@51 for just about everything and phenomenal against Dragons. Balli is great vs Demons. (Orcs and Trolls don't count--with your character, you can kill them just as easily with a shovel.)

Sting is your best weapon -- you still have max HP, and you get +2 more speed and a damage bonus against most monsters. Keep Taratol as a versatile swap with a great activation. Keep Balli at home in case you need the extra +1 CON.

Thanks for commenting Pete. I am aware of the relative merits of the three weapons which I carry. The primary wield is BAoBS because it has REGENERATION as a characteristic. That is VERY important to me. When I get an alternative source, I will leave it at home or sell it because it is heavy...

Strange--I find that High-level Priests and Paladins don't need Regen -- they can pretty much stand and deliver, and just keep self-healing. For priests, most monsters take ~7mana and 0 HP; even tough ones take ~35 mana and 0 HP. The one thing these classes are bad at is ID (it takes lots of mana), so try to ID by destroying anything that can't help you. If it's an artifact, great. If not, it wouldn't have helped anyway.

For your character, this applies to all equipment except:
Big-dice melee weapons
Bows
Amulets
Cloaks
Helmets
Boots

Everything else is junk.

(IDing ammo is important, so upgrade to 3.1.1, and ID ammo by throwing arrows at orcs.)

It takes about 200 mana to pray dragon pits down to the three wyrms. Then I TO them and pick up loot. With BAoBS I regenerate 200 mana by the time I have picked up all the loot. So like I said, regeneration is very important...

Then pick up "Regen, and use it as a swap for "Weaponmastery. (If you really need Regen as much as that--store it at home for when you want it in the late game. Also: all Rings of Power have Regen--so go deep enough to get them!

Narya: dl 70
Nenya: dl 80
Vilya: dl 90

At dl 80, your chances go up by ~1.5, and by ~x2 at dl 90. Also: Wrath of God is native to dl 100, which means it shows up (rarely) in lesser vaults at dl 90.
