pale DrCj^Gozag, found +4 demonblade on D:6

I rolled a Draconian Conjurer semi-randomly, got Gozag from a faded altar, and found a shop where I can buy the end-game spells FireStorm and Chain Lightning. I've been putting all my stat-ups into Int.

The character feels strong, though there's no obvious direction to grow into for now.

I just found a +4 demon blade of draining. Any advice on whether I should invest into it?
On the one hand it's a strong weapon, especially for this stage of the game. On the other hand it's only good for dealing damage, which my magic is already quite capable of. To make optimal use of it I could start putting stat points into Dex, and whilst I have been meaning to play a Dex-focused long blades draconian at some point, Conjurations skill feels wasted on a long blades specialist. Also I'm never going to get my base Dex higher than my base Int.

Re: pale DrCj^Gozag, found +4 demonblade on D:6

I don't think you should start to train for a melee weapon now. You have a lot of spell levels left: I'd learn at least Fulminant Prism, Swiftness and Apportation right away. Airstrike is also tempting as you have a staff of air.
