Ranger in danger, need help from a stranger

Ok, first of all, sorry about the title but I just couldn't help myself.

Secondly, hi everybody! I've been playing Angband on and off for a while and I have managed to get a few characters deep in the past, where they have either died or I've gotten bored of them, I'm still without a win.

I was unsure about where to place this thread, just move it if it fits better someplace else. I started this ranger earlier today and I feel I have been getting a pretty good start. I got a lucky early find of Amrod and can dish out some pretty good damage with it, I also just found a shovel which ironically does more damage than my old sword of Venom, I still haven't found anything really worthwhile in the melee department though.

I have been playing this guy pretty fast but cautiously, trying to detect as often as I can and I prefer escaping rather than fighting if I have the smallest doubt about winning. I'm loving the playstyle of ranger, it almost feels a bit munchkiny at times with all the detects and escapes after playing warrior! What I'm mainly missing now is poison resist and some method of tOther so that I can clear vaults, I have been missing out on a few minor ones due to that reason.

I'm contemplating now if I should crank it up a notch and dive madly or if I should hang around this depth for a while and search for rPoison and tOther. I'm in favor of the first alternative, but if skipping out on the later is suicide I would try to find it. Any opinion on this? Also, is there anything else vital I'm missing?

If you detect monsters often you could go a bit deeper. The rpoison ring or any item is about to turn up. Well, sometimes the RNG sort of delays the deliverance. ^^
Try to get some potions of rpoison (if not found in the dungeon they show up in the black market every now and then).

Look out for Drolems!

The Drolem (Green 'g') === Num:472 Lev:44 Rar:3 Spd:+10 Hp:2500 Ac:130 Exp:12000 A constructed dragon, the drolem has massive strength. Powerful spells weaved during its creation make it a fearsome adversary. Its eyes show little intelligence, but it has been instructed to destroy all it meets. This dragon is normally found on dungeon level 44, and moves quickly. It may fire a missile. It may breathe poison, and is also magical, casting spells which blind, confuse or slow; 1 time in 5. It can open doors and bash down doors. It is cold blooded. It is not detected by telepathy. It resists lightning, fire, cold and poison. It cannot be frightened, confused or slept. It takes quite a while to see intruders, which it may notice from 250 feet. It can claw to attack with damage 3d10, claw to attack with damage 3d10, bite to poison with damage 5d10, and bite to poison with damage 5d10.

Thanks for your advice! I dived a bit deeper, avoiding everything that looked dangerous, until the Phoenix double moved me and did me in. I had detected him but foolishly thought I would make it around the corner before he caught up with me instead of teleporting. YASD, I guess. Ah well, this guy lacked a bit of everything, better luck next time.

Be sure to switch away from 3.1.0 before you start your next game. Either 3.0.9 or 3.1.1 is a better choice.
