Accuracy on ranged weapons is pretty handy on a Paladin, since they're usually quite terrible with them.

Keep the best crossbow you find around, in case you find good bolts. Until then, use whatever launcher you have the best ammo for.

Thanks for the warning - actually I largely am not looking for spoilers, but thanks for the help - did not read the rest of the post yet.

OK. It's a heavy crossbolt 20 pounds which doesn't help. I do have decent bolts but only 5, so I stuck it in the house for now with the sling.

Ladder updated, in town and full inv as usual (now that basic spellbook is back in inv - that's 2 each of 4 books now).

It's hard to see what to get rid of - spellbooks, important combat and escape items and explore items. But something needs to go to get any new items.

I would drop pebbles, iron shots, rod of polymorph and rod of illumination without a slightest worry I'd be missing them later.

You can leave PB4 at home until you can at least somewhat reliably cast the healing spell. The other spells in there aren't very useful.

Are the rods of slow monster actually helping? They have such a high fail rate, I would think they mostly just don't work. And they only slow the target by at most 20%. And drop the pebble and shots. Your chance of getting a high-end sling is exceedingly low before DL 80 or so.

They have worked every time. I assumed they were 50% slow though. I have a sling now that's (+10, +15) similar to the bow.

But the bow is x3, while the sling is only x2. It isn't anywhere near as good.
