There are winners in the high 40s, so I would say look at your gear and stockpile of consumables and see if you'll be ready soon.

Character level doesn't matter much compared to equipment and stats. A properly equipped cl 47 Kobold rogue is more than strong enough to take out Morgoth.

You were wielding the Great Hammer of Aule (9d3) (+19,+21) [+5] (+4) (s).
You are wielding the Bastard Sword of Eowyn (4d4) (+12,+16) (+4 stealth) (a).
You feel yourself moving faster!
You feel resistant to acid!
You feel resistant to electricity!
You feel resistant to fire!
You feel resistant to cold!
You feel resistant to poison!
A mystic shield forms around your body!
You have removed the rubble.
The Witch-King of Angmar teleports you away.
Note: The witch-king is a wuss.

Whew. Just took out Carcharoth and found my first ever Ring of Power, Vilya. Going down this deep is pretty exciting.

Oh, Vilya grants telepathy - thank goodness. I gave up my telepathy helmet a while ago for a better range of resists and stats, and the lack of telepathy's been driving me nuts.

Necklace of the Dwarves too - what a fun vault.

Anyway, my base speed is 48 (treebeard style). Is that overkill? Should I swap some speedy items out for something else, like stats? My stats are pretty high as it is. Guess I'll post a dump, let's see ...

There, I attached it. Am I close to being ready for Morgoth yet? I have to admit I was afraid to face both the Witch-king and Carcharoth, but they were both pretty easy fights.

Edit: I normally wield Aule's hammer - I was using Eowyn's sword to take out some nether wraiths since it gives me rNether.

48 speed is overkill, you could swap out your crossbow for bard or better yet belthondring if you find it (rdisenchant yay!)

38 and 48 speed is practically no difference, 3 energy actually according to tables.c

After an appropriate period of mourning, I've got another kobold rogue descending into the dungeons (last one died to overconfidence in a conflict with balrogs). I've been trying to dive a little quicker and not worry about making money, and it -is- kind of nice to not collect every single magic item and recall to town constantly to sell everything. I should've done this a long time ago.

The really nice thing is if you just worry about the big ticket items and keep going down, you even make money faster. Nothing on DL1-20 is going to make up for the cash you'd be getting on DL30-40, etc.

I found a hard leather cap that pseudoed as {splendid}. It turned out to be a hard leather cap of intelligence.

So, what causes an item to pseudo as "splendid" rather than "excellent?" Stat bonuses, maybe?

This and randarts have reinvigourated angband for me.

I used to do these plodding early games and it sucked much fun out of the game. Now all I do is kill farmer maggot, take anything he drops, then head straight down
