Another very useful ammo inscription is =g, which means pick up this ammo on walkover. So, if you have a stack of arrows that you fire off, all you need do is walk over them to put the spent arrows back in your quiver.

And your principal weapon can be inscribed with @0 and a swap weapon or digger with the same. Then the "x" key will instantly swap them back and forth.

One more important inscription is !! on rods, especially Rods of Light or Detection. I use Rods of Light in hallways to avoid getting jumped by monsters in the dark. After finding ESP, i discard them.

!! is to give a reminder when the rod (or anything else with a recharge time) is recharged.

..and there's an option you can set to notify you on all recharges, too.

The first really dangerous"exceedingly quick" monster is the Tarrasque. It is a regular killer of endgame strong characters.
Actually, I found a ring of constitution +5; but at the same time, I got also a ring of speed +12... for now I'm using speed but I'll swap them if you suggest so.

I promise I'll find time to read all of your comments and explanations, they're very useful.

In the meantime, I uploaded my new character dump if anyone wants to see it.
I tried to use inscriptions, they worked fine for a while, then when I tried to add that preference file (without uncommenting anything for the moment) they stopped working altogether; I haven't looked into it yet. Still, I got rid of MB1 as now I have the rods of detection (I know I have to drop a few of them, bad habits take time to go away XD)

My character looks pretty decent to me now. What about the new body armors and Amulet I found, should I put them on in place of what I currently have?

Wield Isildur. It's your best armor so far and protects against confusion. Hammerhand is great, and should be saved, but right now you NEED telepathy. Get that ESP helm on @'s head until you have an alternative source of ESP. Drop all the extra copies of MB5 (Scarabtrices). Dungeon books are immune to fire, therefore you only need one copy. Six copies of MB4 (sorcery) is overkill, 2 or 3 should do. If you ever get immunity to fire, drop all extra copies of every book.

Yeah I should have posted the dump after I cleaned it of redundacies.

about the telepathy, I am wearing an amulet of ESP, isn't that enough?

about inscription, just to make it clear: if I write {!g} it should mean: "always ask for confirmation before picking up" or something like that, right? the @ and !! commands are working, but I can't seem to figure this one out. I don't really care about dropping but these books keep stacking, that's why I always have so many, and I forget about dropping them. So avoiding picking them up in the first place would be better.

Yeah, I just didn't notice the ESP amulet. Do a comparison on damage output, Telepathy helm with Weaponmastery vs. ESP amulet with Hammerhand. You probably have the right build for now.

"!" plus letter command means get confirmation before doing the keypress action. However, if you have the option set to automatically pick up inventory items, then !g might not help, since you aren't using a command to pickup the item. Personally, I turn off the automatic pick-up options, especially once I'm past the early game. On the dungeon books, once you have one in inventory, if it is inscribed with !k (don't squelch), then you can use the ignore menu to get rid of all further instances. Sometimes, I will even ignore the town books (with the ones in inventory marked with !k) and only unignore them if the inventory burns.

Except for the somewhat scary rPoison hole, that character is endgame strong. Stay away from Great Swamp Wyrms (and a few others like Carcharoth). Do keep temporary poison resist active. It's a huge help.

I died at level 90 at the hand of carcaroth... silly me for using a scroll of deep descent to jump some levels faster I got killed in around 5 rounds... at the beginning I though: "ok I can handle this" then I received a blow of nether that knocked me from 570/925 to 0/920

ok but at least first time I made it this far Will try again soon! And thank you all for your help, I'll create new dumps of next tries as soon as I can
