The only egos where the *Slay* actually does more damage are Demon, Dragon, and Undead, because there are specifically 2 types of those slays, one of which is x3 and the other of which is x5. For all other *Slay*s, the only difference between Slay and *Slay* is that the latter is a more rare ego item that gets a stat boost and some extra ability.

OK, @ has dropped Purification and Healing in favor of the rod of restoration, since the rod can be used right now, whereas the spell book won't kick in until CL45.

Now she's found a copy of Holy Infusions. Inventory slots are scarce and I'm not really sure the spells in the book are worthwhile. Is it worth carrying?

'Infusions' is pretty much the only way to loot a vault as a Paladin. So yeah, keep it if you can. P&H is less useful.

What? How do you mean? IIRC all Infusions has is a couple of crappy gear enchanting spells.

I don't know what spells are in which book any more, bui you should probably carry whatever books I used to carry. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=9556

Unvarying ways, yes. Most vaults are hugely painful without it. Fall through trap, summon ethereal vortex, lose str, teleport into room full of OOD monsters... Easier to carry the spell until you're happy with your kit.
