Edit: I have also 6 enchant weapon scrolls, I was planning to wait for a branded greatsling to use them (a +8 greatsling of anything is quite good).
I could also wait for non-antimagic demon blade / double sword (afaik, antimagic is good against casters but it has lower damage of the other brands).
