Ranger in danger, need help from a stranger

Ok, first of all, sorry about the title but I just couldn't help myself.

Secondly, hi everybody! I've been playing Angband on and off for a while and I have managed to get a few characters deep in the past, where they have either died or I've gotten bored of them, I'm still without a win.

I was unsure about where to place this thread, just move it if it fits better someplace else. I started this ranger earlier today and I feel I have been getting a pretty good start. I got a lucky early find of Amrod and can dish out some pretty good damage with it, I also just found a shovel which ironically does more damage than my old sword of Venom, I still haven't found anything really worthwhile in the melee department though.

I have been playing this guy pretty fast but cautiously, trying to detect as often as I can and I prefer escaping rather than fighting if I have the smallest doubt about winning. I'm loving the playstyle of ranger, it almost feels a bit munchkiny at times with all the detects and escapes after playing warrior! What I'm mainly missing now is poison resist and some method of tOther so that I can clear vaults, I have been missing out on a few minor ones due to that reason.

I'm contemplating now if I should crank it up a notch and dive madly or if I should hang around this depth for a while and search for rPoison and tOther. I'm in favor of the first alternative, but if skipping out on the later is suicide I would try to find it. Any opinion on this? Also, is there anything else vital I'm missing?
