At your depth the most common method is to quaff potions which restore stats. Look in the Alchemist's store in town, they usually cost about 400 AU each (depending on CHR) although they don't always stock the specific ones you need.
There are other items (such as mushrooms of restoring and statgain potions) which will also repair damaged stats but these are unlikely to turn up until you are considerably deeper.

You need to search chests for traps, then disarm them. Most have traps. Anyway, they are hardly worth opening, at least in V.

Buy a Potion of Restore Strength in the alchemist, since it will give you 4 blows. Being down by 1 CON doesn't make much difference until much later in the game--buying a staff of teleportation or enchanting a longbow is more important.

And lucky you, for finding an artifact dagger so early! Those things are fantastic finds for a melee character.

How'd you get the old style graphics with the %s and #s ? I get solid blocks for my walls.

should explain how to change them back.

Since I normally play on a mac (which has by default has #s and %s), I'm used to it - and every time I play on a PC I can't stand the walls. I find the font in general on the windows port uglier.

brigadine armor to too heavy to be worth it unless it's a good ego and you've got high STR. wait till you find ego armor in the dungeon.

indeed, that is what I said. If it's just resist an element then resist acid is best cause then it can't be damaged, but what you really want is resistance or elvenkind.

I disagree with this. Acid Resistance is the least important of the basic 4; Fire resistance is the most important because
a) there are more fire breathers
b) Hellhounds are lethal without resistance.

Acid damage is cut in half if it hits a slot with armor. (Armor either damaged, or resisting damage.) And it is crazy to fight acid-damage monsters anyway, because they are so hard on your equipment and inventory, including any swap weapons

So if I'm stuck with Armor of Resistance, I go with Fire & cold first, and use an amulet of resist lightning for electricity. That covers the 'basic 3', without wasting any ring slots.
