So what's the actual power of the ring? Is it because it's Frodo wearing it that it doesn't do much?

I can tell you that the ring corrupts power, so the more powerful the being in possession is, the greater the effect of the ring on the wearer. Hobbits do not possess much power and make for excellent ring bearers. When Sauron wore the ring, he was capable of some pretty intense ****, but I don't know what the rings potential is

It actually has a whole host of different abilities it grants the wearer, but the potential to harness them depends on the wearer itself (As in, different people will get different abilities depending upon their traits or skills). Some of the things it can do are cast illusions, make you invisible, allow you to shape-shift, allow you to dominate minds, basically everything that Sauron could do at a MUCH higher level of power (as he pumped all of his power into it, and when focusing upon it, it worked as a catalyst).

However, the problem is that the ring itself is sentient in a way and only 'unlocks' for its true master, Sauron. It would take many years, hard training, and much discipline to harness all that power for yourself and even then it would corrupt you into something evil (as it does naturally, due to the fact it reflects Sauron's power).

It's only two constants, regardless of who holds it, is that it improves ALL of your abilities (making you smarter, faster, tougher, stronger, more magically inclined, braver, ect.) and will actively protect you from any type of harm (provided the harm would result in the ring being lost again. It wants to go back to its master, and so will help you in whatever way so long as that is where you are headed).

The reason why Frodo wears it is because Hobbits are like tiny humans (in every way) included being slow of the mind and slow temperament, allowing them to resist the control of the ring much easier than even a disciplined Human, or Dwarf would, but it also makes the ring's powers less effective for him, like a trade-off. The reason no one else wears it is that if you are actually CAPABLE of using it properly, no matter how good your intentions are, it naturally turns you evil through cutting corners of your ideals, which is why even Gandalf did not want to wear it, despite his own power and discipline.

As a matter of fact, Sauron did plan and do most of these things in the books. He was a very intelligent person and keen strategist, the only reason he lost (twice) is because he underestimated his opponents both times, and thus took greater risks than he needed to.

1.when sauron reached for isildur,he wanted to burn isildur (scene cut where he actually did this to an elf king). basic war tactic, slay the king/kings son will lower troop morale.

2. Narsil, the broken elf blade was enchanted so it can cut anything,even ghost. Sauron underestimated this, as he thought his armor was impenetrable.

it's not really a plothole for sauron to not think about every nook and cranny of every mountain

I think you overestimate how much time I am willing to spend on your post.
