Question PDSM difficult activate

My hT-warrior found PDSM of craftsmanship on DL33, a cavern level with with monster/object ratings 1--9.

1) PDSM were rare before V4. Are PDSM still rare in V 4.0.4?

2) Does PDSM craftsmanship warrant object rating 9 cavern DL33?

3) Are monster and object ratings calculated differently for standard, cavern, and maze levels?

The numerous resistance from PDSM are great, but the activation occurs with only 25% success, with 55 turns for recharge.

4) How can my hT-warrior improves activation success on PDSM?

5) Is it possible to shorten the recharge time of PDSM?

6) Are scrolls to impart stat bonuses onto PDSM?

4) Better INT, possibly better level. That's about it. Half-troll warriors are never going to be great at using magic items though.

5) No.

6) Scrolls of Enchant Armor can increase its AC bonus if it's not already greater than +15, but it probably already is. Just take your awesome body armor and be satisfied.

You are very, very lucky to find one that early. And yes, you will have to wait several character levels until you can activate it with some reliability.
