Play fast, die early, move on to the next character. Part of why I recommended avoiding High-Elf is because the experience penalty slows the game down, and the more time you spend with any one character, the more attached you get to them, which makes the inevitable death all the more painful.

Good luck!
I didn't accept this new meta at first but now I whole-heartedly embrace it. My general approach for single-stat classes (mages and priests) is maximize the casting stat ASAP by any means possible, including any gain/lose potions of the right type you find and stat gain rings. For mages this gives you 0% teleport other which means you can dive dive dive. For rogues I hang out more at stat-gain (dlev 30's) playing for stat gain potions via detect objects, and when I have "enough" I then dive again.
