Help with Morgoth

Hey Guys,

So I finally went and killed Sauron for the first time (woot!). It wasn't too bad, I used maybe 4 !healing and a ?banish. So I went right down after Morgoth and it didn't go very well. I only took down about 2 *s before I ran out of !healing and he or one of his summons must have destroyed all of my 20+ cure critical wounds. I also used my only 3 mass banishments. Obviously, I'm not doing something right.

1) First, should I be digging a certain kind of tunnel? I dug an anti-summoning corridor and I guess it helped, but since he burrows, there was plenty of room for him to summon uniques.

2) Should I pelt him with bolts from afar or try to melee him as a rogue? He was frequently nailing me with something that took away 700+ hps.

3) What consumables should I have? How many !healing and such? How about ?Mass Banishment?



Finally, here is my character. Any equipment I should switch out? Right now, I basically have all of my resists covered out of paranoia, but perhaps I could squeeze more damage but getting rid of uneeded resists. Thanks!
