I'm starting to get a better appreciation for this as a viable tactic. I noticed today that a feanorian lamp of brightness + doriath sword + wolfbane is enough to make werewolves flee on sight. I'm actually pretty impressed how well thought out the morale mechanics are.

Edit: & horn of terror + staff of light just saved me while webbed from a spider of Gorgoroth.
