my archery characters always had slaying and sharpness, sometimes they would kill V in ~10 turns. Then I would get Versatility with the XP from Morgoth and use that to extract the Sils, and then hope I had Angrist for when my first weapon breaks. My strategy is to go into the secret passage, build up a bit of slaying, then go find Morgoth and shoot him to death.
