I'm pretty sure that the Witch-king was a lot more fallible than he thought he was

I'm pretty sure that the Witch-king was a lot more fallible than he thought he was [In reply to] Can't Post

It's always been my opinion that the further away from their Master they were, the less power they had; so in the North they weren't quite so strong as they were when they came South. Also I do believe that hundreds of years of being dominated by the One, the Nine were more or less sapped of any will of their own, and possibly lacked initiative for any action that was not directly sanctioned by Sauron. If Sauron had ordered Frodo to be made a wraith, then they would not try to kill him. So combine the fact of being far away from their Master, and being less able to think for themselves I think their actions at Weathertop are not so inexplicable.
