Hobbit Mage Question

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=22572

I asked these question once before with a different hobbit mage who I stupidly killed. This mage is doing well. Am I safe to dive lower and if so, how low might you try? Would you equip yourself differently?

The answer is yes. With ESP, you can go deep. But you want stealth speed and HP in some combination. For that char, it means wearing those half-assed boots of speed. Nexus just isn't going to kill you.

Bit late but I agree with Pete. The issue with lacking rnexus is random teleport from nexus vortexs etc. which you can detect. +4 speed is close to 1.5x speed. 2/3 the no. of monsters waking. 1.5x damage output. 2/3 the chance of suffering from a mistake etc.
