Well, like I said, Sauron doesn't have the Ring. That's the entire motivation behind the LotR trilogy: he wants his ring back.

You get this at level 30 (not 40, Sky).


Per-shot bow damage is (damage bonus on bow + damage bonus on ammo + dice roll on ammo) * (multiplier on bow + any applicable slay/brand).
