I don't generally kill it til much later. He hits to burn and drain charges, so he is hell on equipment. Once you get Tenser's spell brand ammo and a good bow (and especially fire immunity), he is an easy kill.

Just found a scroll of *Destruction* is that the one that wrecks a big chunk of the level? When is it best to use it?

Yes, it is. Use it when you're in a situation where you have no other safe escapes; it's almost an ideal panic button. You can't use it when blind or confused (hence the "almost"), but otherwise it'll buy you at least 10 turns of safety and probably a lot more. In addition to wrecking the level, it will delete all monsters and items in the area of effect -- they're completely gone from the level (but not marked as killed, in the case of uniques).

If you never encounter a panic situation, they're still useful in the final fight, where you can use them to delete Morgoth's summons, after having teleported Morgoth away -- he can be deleted by the effect just like any other unique.

When you would otherwise die. It's an excellent guaranteed escape. Eventually you will want to stash some of them (and the two banishment scrolls and possibly Rune) for the final fight.

Just killed Medusa and Scatha the Worm, I've got an artefact bonanza on my hands. Dunno what to wear! Any suggestions?

Rob--it's easier to read the character dump if you post it to the ladder.

Drop Holhenneth. Gondor is strictly better. Drop the *thancs and Maedros. They are for early characters only. Barrukheled is your best weapon, for sure. Drop the MoD. Gloves of Slaying are junk.
Ring of Dex is worthless. You can only ever really need 18/150.
I'd say use helm of ESP. That's something you don't want to do without. That and Barrukheled.
