wobbly will become famous soon enough
Morgoth isn't immune to poison or fire, so a good enough bow with poison/flaming arrows can break through irregardless of slaying or sharpness, it's just going to be slower. I watched Mitze do the throne room & he had enough evasion that Morgoth simply wasn't hitting, which is harder to do if you've gone stealth, but it's certainly possible to get archery to the point where you can just bombard Morgoth point blank.

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.
