People disagree about the exact definition, but pretty much it just comes down to damage. You want to be doing as much damage per turn as possible. The faster you deal damage, the shorter the fight takes, the fewer chances there are for disaster to strike. I would personally say that 400/round vs. Morgoth is about my minimum threshold, but it's definitely possible to do more, and it's also entirely possible to win with less.

Take a look at the ladder:
This lists Angband Paladin winners. Ignoring the silly randart games with 800+ dam/turn, winners are generally doing 400-600 damage vs evil, with 500-550 being common. Note a lot of MoD and SoS +2 attacks and Holy Avenger winners, all doing 500+ damage/turn. Players generally use a lot of off-weapon damage, too. Immunities and resistances just don't matter much when you have near-unlimited healing.

What Derakon said. Out of curiousity, what weapon did you end up using against Morgoth? I don't see it in your inventory, and it surely wasn't Grond.

Oh. It was mace of disruption. And I don't remember the stats, but nothing special..
Nearly 10 potions *Healing* were quaffed and nearly 4 Scrolls of Mass Banishment were read.
