YASD: passwalling stabber of Ash

This is my current GrEE. I've been keen to play a scrying, passwalling stabber of Ashenzari for a while but this is the first time I've gotten the playstyle going. He's got all the tools needed to clear the remaining Lair branches, but I'm starting to wonder how I'm going to transition into my endgame (3-4 runes and run). Any observations/recommendations?

I expect I'll end up having to uncurse the +6 dagger of venom and leave that slot swappable so that I have a superior melee option. (Though three casts of Irradiate will still do much of the work on things I can't stab.) The game has a +11 vorpal flail with +4 Int and a +8 battleaxe of freezing with +5 Str so I'm pondering them. Remember I can reskill with Ash if I decide to commit.

I'm trying to avoid casting LRD until levels are mostly cleared -- most of my damage still comes from Passwall and Petrify setting up stabs, but I know that won't last. The highest level Conjurations in the game thus far are Irradiate, Lightning Bolt and Venom Bolt, all at level 5. I'm dubious how much the latter two would add to my current kit, the former due to noise and the latter due to overlap with my +6 dagger of venom. There's no Earth spells in the game beyond my starting book.

Re: CiP: passwalling stabber of Ash

Okay, I didn't have all the tools needed to clear Lair branches. I thought I could kill TRJ with Scroll of Immolation and Irradiate, but got swarmed and had to bail. Maybe I'll be back later with a better weapon or conjuration online.

Re: CiP: passwalling stabber of Ash

Getting 8# spell power on your key attack spells would probably be ideal. Petrify as well, is potent for a standard 3-rune. I would say since you have 6# spell power now, get your defenses up to your liking, then aim for more spell power.

More stealth will help for stabbing. Can never go wrong with near max stealth or max stealth.

The axe works with Irradiate I think.

Upto 15 SH can help a lot with large rocks I've noticed. Wouldn't expect more from a buckler.
As much EV as possible would help you a lot. Same for HP. I'd say train Fighting and Dodge now, until you feel you have enough.

edit:
I think the RJ is more worse than elf itself in it's entirety. Tyically, u need to quaff all the buff potions: Brilliance, Agility, Haste, Might, Res, etc. Use a immolation if you have res fire+++. Two or Three scrolls of torment. The summoned pack will kill u quick, so it helps to have teleport. And no, that pack can easily hit u with your defenses.

Re: CiP: passwalling stabber of Ash

There's no reason to swap out of shortblades when you have alternate forms of killdudes, just use a better brand on a quickblade/rapier.

Get decent spellpower on LRD/Petrify and keep an eye out for Iron shot and Scritters. Endgame spellset will probably be Bolt/Shot/Spellforge/Smv+dchan or critters/utility.

Just LRD the slime rune.

Re: CiP: passwalling stabber of Ash

Mark did me in. Had used up cancellation, got caught too far from stairs. Entire vault branch was stone walls so no Passwalling around. Probably missed the point where Teleport was less risky than waiting out the door ward.

I had killed Saint Roka just a few minutes earlier with just two casts of Petrify and then stab, stab, stab. That feeling of power is lethal.
