That's +3 to damage.

I'm not sure what benefit protection from evil actually gives. I read that protection from nether is useless, but the poison is nice.
protEvil makes evil monsters less likely to hit you in melee for several turns. It's not that bad.

Do you have the four base resists already covered (fire, cold, elec, acid)? If no, I would keep Himring it only as a swap item. Otherwise, go for it. I'm not sure at which depth you are now, but rPois is nice to have when basilisks and drolems starts showing up (~dlvl 40). The difference in AC is not likely to matter, at this point. The major risks in the mid-game come from being one-shotted to death by fast, unresisted breathers, not from melee.

Boots of radagast, but they don't look useful - wis/stealth/infravision.

The boots of stability at least have pNexus.

There's a ring of bodykeeping but that's not worth the loss in damage is it?

Rod of detection is what you want--that and Teleport Other are the two critical magic devices for warriors, with mapping a distant third. You want around 5 or 6 of them by the end of the game. Rod of treasure detection might still be worth carrying until you get a second Detection.

Thanks - can you clarify the differences between them?

I can see why I'd want multiple rods of teleport other (don't have any yet, but have a wand), but why 5 or 6 detection?

Not sure what treasure location has that detection doesn't if anything.
