Vaults as a mage

I've actually managed to keep a high-elf mage alive up to clvl 29 and I'm currently wandering around dlvl 40~ killing off what I can and running away from the rest. I'm getting to the stage where I kinda need to get some better gear happening, but not really sure how to approach any size of vault as a mage. I have teleport other but the fail rate is too high for me to actually want to go anywhere near anything vaguely out of depth.

So any help on specifically clearing out vaults, or just where to go from here would be lovely. Dump should be there xx

Until you can reliably cast TO as a spell, your best vault clearing option is a stack of wands of TO. They aren't usually too hard to find in the dungeon, and you can cast recharging spells on them after you finish the vault run.

The only other possible techniques for vault clearing without TO are actually fighting, or else luring the baddies into chasing you across the map and then teleporting back toward the vault. These tactics are much riskier, and very much not recommended at your current CL and DL.

If none of these strategies appeal, the last resort option is to ascend back to a depth where you can safely clear whatever vaults you find, and scum those levels until you're strong enough to proceed.

Hello, with a mage i would prefer the regen gauntlets over the FA one - you lose some SP but regen compensates for it in my opinion. Or look for some other gear with regen, mages do need it.
Carrying 92 bolts + crossbow is 38 lbs if i am correct which is actually pretty much for a mage - do you use archery that much? It's maybe just a difference in playstyle but i prefer bows with mage characters for that reason and do not carry that many ammo.

Depends on your playstyle.

Personally I use spells and devices, and prioritise INT/CON/STR in that order. I think your INT is way too low, aggressively quaff !Intellect / !Intelligence. I'd use Hithlomir and replace the rElec amulet. rPois can come from Resistances, or if you're worried of being careless I'd use an rPois ring which shouldn't be rare. I'd lose a large number of bolts to avoid being overencumbered. Your bow looks very weak, launchers of might / power / accuracy / extra shots also shouldn't be that rare at your depth.

First off, it's safe to say you won't need Gorlim.

Your INT is pityful, start chugging potions. What in the world persuaded you to start with INT 13.. one more +3 ring, a +2 helm, and a couple !Intellect and you should be ok.
