Is it wrong to use a natural hockey-stick?

Soros, the Half-Elf Ranger

Found Belthronding, The Glaive of Pain, Nenya, and Razorback AND ... The One Ring!!! Didn't have very many Slay Evil arrows and no Holy Might arrows, but with such great equipment I had to go after the Bosses. Sauron fell easily, then it was time to go after Morgoth. He was ensconced in a Greater-V vault. @ destructed the entrance, lured Morgie out and then TO'd him. Only had one ?Mass Banishment, but instead of using it to handle summons, @ used it to clear the vault. TO'd the remaining uniques from the vault then waited for the Big P to return. Lured him down the side of the vault and toward the entrance, then high-tailed it to the top of the V. Morgoth was forced to approach along a permanent-walled perfect hockey-stick. I didn't create it, just used the terrain to my advantage.

Fired off all the arrows and Morgoth still hadn't arrived. TO'd him again and retrieved the arrows. Waited then repeated the maneuver. Most of the arrows were broken, so retrieval didn't make as much sense this time. Instead, @ cast a Rune of Protection and waited for Morgoth to finish his journey to the top of the V, then wailed on him with The Glaive of Pain. Morgoth summoned all the remaining Ringwraiths, all stacked up behind him. This could have been a problem, as Morgie could have blasted @ with a Mana Storm at the same time as a Ringwraith did a Mana Bolt, Nether, or some other nasty surprise. Fortunately, Morgoth broke the rune on the next move and walled himself in with @, forcing the Wraiths outside the small enclosure.

A new Rune and the bludgeoning of the Big Dark Lord continued apace until he was wailing and crying and finally dead. I think I'll take his crown...!!!

Only one @ left to go in the quest to have a winner with every race/class combination....
