General advice on current GnWn run

I'm looking for general advice. I'm playing a GnWn^Oku.
I've cleared this game some years ago, and somehow I came back.

I'd like to get advice on what weapons to use. I have the artefact ones, but it seems that the demon trident of pain is actually better damage wise. Would it be a good idea to weapon enchant?

Is there some spells that I should learn? I have currently 3 that gets me by the mid game, but I'm starting Vaults and I think it is time to get something more powerful.

About evocables, I don't use them, is there some that I should be using frequently (and dump the others)?
Regards to wands, is any of them useful to carry around? Like polymorph or destruction? I don't usually use them, I actually have no idea if for example destruction does good damage (more damage than for example the javelins that I have..., or a spell if you suggest that I learn it.)

Thank you!

Re: General advice on current GnWn run

It's generally recommended to use code blocks rather than spoiler/quote blocks for morgues, as it keeps the post fairly small. Enchant those boots if you find any more enchant armor scrolls. Demon trident of pain, especially on a gnoll, is probably about the best weapon you can have for anything that doesn't resist negative. Sadly if the monster has any negative resistance then pain does 0 additional damage (the trident still does its normal damage).

Any sort of generally good spell is worth learning on gnoll, it isn't going to cost any extra training. Bolt of fire, freezing cloud, regeneration are all quite good. You could learn fireball right now, the level 6 spells look like they're going to need another 2-3 levels to get fully online. I don't use hexes much but cause fear could help you escape from monsters that aren't resistant to it.

All of the evocables are useful, and are generally strong, but take time to recharge, so it's more that you want to use them if you find a tough fight you're not sure you can win. You don't really use them "frequently".

Re: General advice on current GnWn run

yeah an unbranded demon trident will still kill things just fine, so don't sweat hitting undeads with it.

Wands are generally good. Polymorph is especially nice on things that have weapons or spells you don't want to deal with, there are a bunch of complicated rules to using it well though — some monsters turn into unexpectedly nasty things. The wiki page http://crawl.chaosforge.org/Wand_of_polymorph explains it as well as I would.

Good spells include most necromancy spells (animate dead, regeneration, vampric draining, dispel is nice if you want to kill an undead monster fast). Zombie buddies are useful all game. Freezing cloud also deals a lot of damage and you're vaguely close to having it online.

While you're learning, I'd lean towards using evocables more often in semi-dangerous situations, so you get used to what they do and how fast they recharge. It's generally better to use things that make you stronger or damage monsters (eg evocables, potions, heroism/finesse) at the start of fights than once you're in the mix.
I am not a very good player. My mouth is a foul pit of LIES. KNOW THIS.
