Get rid of those rods, your disarming skill is at 100%. And store your heals/*heals* you will never have to use them at your depth. Just keep a few in case you want to fight some uniques. Your DEX is maxed, which also means there's no reason to carry more than one copy of the deep books. Inscribe that copy !d and squelch them.

Same for the shop books, since you have fire immunity.

Frankly, I'd lose all the rods, including healing (recharge is too slow, and a palidin with a stack of restore mana doesn't need them, especially with your damage output). Squelch tie attack rods. And I'd reduce all of my potion and scroll stacks in inventory down to at most about 10. Storing endgame consumables is what the home is for; it's not a museum for weapons and armor that you'll never use.

You don't need Slay Undead against Morgoth.

yea i'm just sort of a packrat. my home is literally a museum that's why i was trying to figure out what to trash from home! i guess i won't ever replace the weapon probably...

the potions of mana and *healing* i've found useful for the really hard hitting bosses i've run into. i had used rods a lot but i guess it really isn't that useful.

can you explain the maxed DEX and not needing extra books part? (i know for immunity there's no need)

for disarming, yea i just noticed it's finally 100. I had them around for a long time so i wouldn't fall through trap doors :P

the only way you can lose the dungeon books (book 5~9) is if a thief steals them from you. their chance of stealing is based on your DEX, and if you have max DEX, their chance is 0%.

I prefer to inscribe with !g and not squelch, rather than !d
