CIP- MiFi of TSO- 12 runes and counting.. seeking advice

http://crawl.akrasiac.org/rawdata/Gakhan/Gakhan.txt -- currently in Tomb:3 going for the rune.. got 3/4 Hell runes and 4/5 Pan runes.. this is by far the farther ive been.. i have never won a game with 3 runes let alone 15 so i am half excited half scared at this point lol.. i now it wont take much for this to be a YASD post xD. anyone have any quick suggestions based on my char dump?.. i know i have some rot going on.. it was worse last night before i used a couple recharges worth of a wand of heal wounds to try and reverse it.. any hints someone sees? id really like this to be my first win ever/with 15 runes :)

Re: CIP- MiFi of TSO- 12 runes and counting.. seeking advice

My experience with a MiFi of Qazlal running axes w/ +9 executioner's axe (vamp) is that Zot was a cakewalk, so I wouldn't be too apprehensive about winning after you've collected however many runes you want. And that was just a really basic 3 rune build, no spells, just fighting/axes/armor/dodging and some evo and invo. I didn't have haste even in consumable form and it was no problem. I guess you'll have haste online by the time you get the remaining runes, so I think you should be fine, barring some mishap on the way to 15 runes.

edit: i guess the standard advice would be you put way too much into shields, whose utility has diminishing returns on the high end, especially in the late game, and you could have more spells online, notably regeneration and haste, if you had skilled some of your non-axe combat skills only to 25 or so and used the experience for magic schools. Now that it's done though, just keep doing what you're doing and consider picking up regeneration and some other low level utilities, e.g. stuff from the "good spells" entry on learndb.

i was running out of things to use my exp on, and ive never made it this far.. minotaur is my favorite but not good at magic so ive never considered using any spells with him lol.. i still have a lot to learn i know.. im not sure ill ever be able to cast haste sadly.. its still at fail 100%

EDIT- seems to be plenty of extra exp late game.. i somehow turned my unarmed combat on by accident and had it over lvl 10 before i even noticed lol

You pick up the obsidian rune and feel its power.
You now have 14 runes. -- and back to Pan for the last rune :D.. i dont think i missed it.. i did quickly leave a few regions where i was going to be overwhelmed and i thought there were only 4 runes to get so i thought i had them all :/

Try speccing some zigs to get a feel for them. It seems the key is to know when to quit on zigs and with melee characters that seems to be before the end usually... Characters you see doing well in zigs and actually clearing them tend to use a lot of level 9 spells...

Your gear is perfect, I don't think you will find anything useful in Zig. Anyway, don't go too deep (that's about level 8-10 for my melee characters).
You have some un-IDed jewelry by the way.
