CIP -> YASD - DECj blessed by the RNG

I'm going to be honest, I have no idea what I'm doing. I need some help with all these spells; I'm not a player who frequents casters, especially not ones like this. I'm also pretty bad at playing squishy characters, so some tips on how to effectively run a DE would be nice.

However, on the plus side, my items... well, I'll let the log speak for itself.

I think my goal is to get Ice Storm castable, but I don't know what I'm working at in the meantime. Also, I should probably get some more ice skill. I guess getting Necromutation eventually might prove useful.

As for my skills, I'm thinking turning off Spellcasting and Conjurations and turning on Dodging and Ice Magic... does that sound like a good plan?

Edit - I died.

Re: CIP - DECj blessed by the RNG

If you are reliably killing the majority of enemies, turn on one or two of fighting/dodging/T&D for a while.

Re: CIP - DECj blessed by the RNG

Thanks! I grabbed 17 dodging, a little buckler, and some fighting. I feel much more survivable now! I cleared Lair, Orc, and Swamp. That's 1 rune down! Next will be Snake.

Re: CIP - DECj blessed by the RNG

Sorry for the doublepost, status update:

Level 20, Snake and Elf are down, although Snake: 5 really scared me. I stairdanced a lot, but spending a single turn down there would rip off half my HP. It was mostly "put on buffs, go down, throw ice storm, go back up, repeat ad infinitum." until it was cleared out.

Elf was fairly easy because of the chokepoint leading to the rune vault. I didn't have Ice Storm reliable when I did it, so I cleared it with Freezing Cloud. Elves are fragile, they dropped within a few turns and I didn't even need to babysit their deaths and take damage!

I'm having trouble with casters. I have iffy MR. I also need a better pair of gloves and a better robe; is it worth skilling up Armour in order to use a +7 PDA artifact with blink? And about my weapon; I'm using the mace still because of the AC+5 and Int+5,but I also have a staff of conjurations and a staff of channeling. Is it worth switching?

Here's the dump:
