What are all the powers of The One Ring?
It's main power was that it had the ability to control/influence the wearers of the other 19 rings he created and gave to the dwarves, elves, and men. Only Sauron could access it's power though
It didn't just turn it's wearers invisible, it shifted them into the unseen world, which is why Frodo could see the nazgul in their ghostly human figures instead of the black cloaked figures.
It is suggested in the books that if someone powerful such as Gandalf or Sarumon had gotten a hold of the ring, they would be able to use it's power moreso than someone like Frodo.
|ask me any question about Lord of the Rings or it's lore (130) | Posted on Oct. 8, 2013, 6:14 p.m.|
Why was a ring that turned you invisible supposed to be so powerful? You could still be hurt and stuff.
The true power of the ring could be used only by Sauron alone. It's true power was that it could be used to control and influence the the other rings he created and gave to the races of Middle Earth. Essentially, it would have allowed him to take over the elves with no military action. And yes the ring did make most of it's wearers invisible, but it also did more than that. It shifted them into the unseen world. This is why when Frodo is stabbed at Weathertop by the Witch King, he can see their true humanlike forms instead of the black cloaked figure everyone else saw.

Just a note, there where more Istari, just never expanded on. In Unfinished Tales it states:"Of this Order the number is unknown; but of those that came to the North of Middle-earth, where there was most hope (because of the remnant of the Dúnedain and of the Eldar that abode there), the chiefs were five."
Fingolfin seemed like the mightiest in my opinion. Dude literally went toe to toe with Morgoth and managed to wound him seven freaking times and gave him a permanent foot injury.

Why are the Elves so smug? Also what happened to the Orcs, Trolls, Goblins ETC after Sauron died?
They were the first inhabitants of Middle Earth, most loved by the Valar. They're immortal unless killed by outside forced, and have more knowledge and wisdom than any other race.
The orcs and trolls etc. are scattered and are no longer unified through a common leader. They are still around, but are in lesser numbers due to warring with each other, being hunted by men, hiding, etc.

If Gandalf isn't allowed to use his magic powers to interfere with the affairs of humans, what's up with that arcane explosion/teleportation in The Hobbit that sends hundreds of goblins to their deaths?
He IS allowed to use his magic. His task is to stop Sauron and the whole point of the Istari being sent to Middle Earth is to do the work of the gods.
He was revived because his mortal body died prematurely before he was able to complete his task.

yeah. Plus if you remember in the movie's, Mount Doom wasn't a big volanoe with a big open hole at the top that they could have just flown over and dropped the ring in all speedy like. He had to climb the side of Mount Doom and enter through the crack of doom in order to get to the area where he could have dropped it in.

How come Sauron was allowed to chill in Mordor and amass giant armies and no one seemed to want to do anything about it until the stuff in the movies happened. Also, did he not have a physical form during the movies? Why did we only see the eye....why didn't he come and fight?
After heeding warning from Radagast and dealing with the Necromancer in Dol Guldor, Gandalf attempted to warn the powers of Middle Earth that Sauron was returning to power, but was basically brushed aside and ignored because of Sarumon failing to be concinved. Even Gandalf was not completely sure that Sauron was returning until he dropped the ring in the fire at Bag End and found that Frodo could see the writing.
Sauron did actually have a physical form during the war of the ring, but never actually came out to fight due to having such little power since he poured so much of his own power into the one ring. He simply wouldn't have been able to do anything physically since he was so weak without the ring. The lidless eye we saw in the movies simply was used as a symbol of power and fear and showed his power to exert his will and show the he was watching and aware of all the was hapening.

Why was that one orc able to get through and blow the wall when Legolas of all people was the one firing arrows at him? He knows exactly where to hit someone with an arrow to take them down swiftly. And don't give me that "He had thicker skin." because why waste him on blowing himself up?
Beause Peter Jackson couldn't resist adding a big awesome explosion into the battle. The orc tanking 3 or so arrows from Legolas definitely wasn't in the book. I like to think he was just a super badass orc that gave zero ****s

Can people besides the Maiar use magic? Isn't Sauron just that other guy's b****?
the Istari (wizards) are the only ones who can use the magic we think of when we hear magic, however there are other maiar in the universe. These include the balrog that Gandalf faces in Moria and Shelob. And yes, Sauron was basically Morgoth's (Melkor's) *****, before he was slain by the Valar and cast into the void.

Why does the Witch King have the crazy armor in the third movie but not in the first?
Probably because in the first movie he and the other nazgul are in simply on a search mission for the ring/ring bearer and has no need for armor, and when he is seen later during the Battle of Pelennor field's, he is in actually participating in the fight. Plus, it looks totally badass and intimidating.

But Zues was sure to have plenty of baby's to make sure nothing crazy happened.
They aren't human, they are angels known as maiar, which were created before the world. Gandalf's real name was Olorin. Eru created the five Istari, and only five. I guess I don't really have an answer as to why Iluvatar didn't create more... he/she/it just decided it didn't need to.

Peregrin Took. Idk why, he was always just my favorite Hobbit. Probably because he's the most humorous throughout the book with his pissing off Gandalf constantly, and I love a man who can make me laugh.

So then why doesn't god just make more angels and destroy sauron
Through the first and second ages, the Valar found that their interfering in the happenings of middle earth usually led to catastrophes, and thus led to their creation of the Istari (Wizards) so they could assist through them. Plus the gods straight up got fed up of dealing with the **** going on in Middle Earth.
Same reasons Zeus didn't lay the smackdown anytime **** went down in ancient Greece.

This idea is also discussed during the Council of Elrond, but is also decided against, as the Valar(gods) would have refused to accept the ring, as it is a problem of the beings of Middle Earth and are tired of dealing with their **** all of the time

Don't need to explain too much in depth but couldn't they have just sailed out to the sea (or whatever it was), dropped the ring tied to a rock and that's it?
Exactly. hiding/securing the ring would have only delayed the inevitable. The ring would eventually find it's way back to Sauron/nazgul. Either by massive wave or someone finding it, etc.

What actually happened to Gandalf I don't get how he didn't die
Gandalf isn't human, he is actually a being known as a maiar, a lesser god, which is much like an angel. The balrog which he battles, is also a maia. After defeating the Balrog in battle, he does die, but is returned back to life by Iluvatar, the god of the universe, because his task of helping defeat Sauron had not been completed yet. He is retured as "The White", the highest power in Middle Earth to combat Sarumon's corruption.

Why didn't tom bombadil take it and what is he
He is an ancient being who's background is never really actually explained. He has likely been there since the creation of the world, since was quoted as saying he "remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn". He simply "is"
During the council of Elrond, the idea of giving Tom the ring to hide/protect is brought up, but is ultimately decided against because he wouldn't fully grasp the importance of the ring and would likely forget where he placed it/give it up. Also, While he is mighty, Elrond states he would ultimately be unable to withstand the full force of Sauron's power and would likely fall eventually.

Why didn't eagles just etc
The whole point in sending the fellowship instead of an army was to send it in secrecy. Sauron had many spies, including the beasts and birds. Sauron would have immediately known what they were up to and sent his nazgul on their fell beasts to intercept them. Not only that, but he would have been able to set up his army to sit and simply wait for Frodo and the eagles to arrive at Mount Doom.
Plus the eagles would have refused to ride into certain death anyway.

Hardly. The "normal" people that accept these people with disabilities and treat them normally have more qualifications for being considered role models and heroes.
