What if you disallowed shooting while in a wall? I feel like disabling the Ranger's best offensive capability would go a long way to keeping people from abusing it.

In mys experience, Single Combat is good against Morgoth if you are overprepared. Basically, it makes it less likely you will make a LOS mistake that would get you killed.
