bound to the One Ring, powerless without it [In reply to] Can't Post

Another helpful quote from the chapter of The Silmarillion, quoted earlier by DanielLB:

"...but secretly Sauron made One Ring to rule all the others, and their power was bound up with it, to be subject wholly to it and to last only so long as it too should last."

This presumably explains why Sauron had to spend so much of his native power during the forging process - it wasn't just about enhancing his own power but also about binding, irrevocably, other instruments of power effectively to him.

Welcome to the Mordorfone network, where we put the 'hai' back into Uruk
