I really didn't think I could outdo Voovus' turncount, and delayed even attempting it for many days. @'s damage output was just abysmal, but Bron's use of drain life wands gave me some inspiration (I usually use them only against Sauron). Even then, I was very lucky to descend to DL100 quite near a "Workaround" vault, with Morgoth inside. I read Mass Banishment, and TO'd Morgoth once, giving me time to set Glyphs of Warding throughout the vault. When Morgoth returned, I knew I couldn't afford to teleport him away even one time, else I'd lose on turncount. Keeping @ out of his line of sight for as long as I possibly could, I emptied drain life wands on him, and recharged them as many times as I could. Arrows came next, and finally, line of sight no longer avoidable, Dispel Evil (1% fail) and Annihilation (26% fail). @ was utterly surrounded and standing on the last Glyph of Warding when Morgoth finally went down. It was a very close thing.
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
