"-Morgoth could choose his path to approach the player to avoid LOS where possible"

or, DL100 is a special level with a new vault containing permanent walls; designed in such a way to make LOS harder.

Do you want the game to be winnable?

If so, then there is only a fixed amount of danger allowable in the game. Perhaps the game is too easy. Then IMO you should change the game to be harder on the way, rather than making it easy to reach M and then make M hard. Once the overall game is in balance, if you make M harder you need to make some other unique easier.

One of the reasons that diving for turncount is interesting is that it limits preparation. If you think M is too easy in your current games, you can choose to go fast enough so that he is not.

Yep I'd agree with this. I've got down to level 99 several times, but I can never be bothered to prepare for the final fights so I tend to leave the game and start a new one.

I don't mind the idea of a dangerous fight, I just don't want to have to wander about for ages looking for consumables.

Maybe the stores should stock some items once you beat Sauron?

In the current state you can win with 50 ?phase and 50 !CCW. Destruction and Teleport other help, and frankly you should have kept several rods of TO and staves by now that you can recharge when needed. However, even these aren't necessary. Get your phase and CCW and attack. If you die, you die, c'est la vie.
