Version History
===============

v 2.60  (12/14/02)  -   Added some comments about the linked "Bane" 
                        moves under the "Combination Attacks & 
                        Upgrades" section.  This will hopefully help 
                        explain how to do the bane moves.  
                        
                        Added a few more tips from Jakob Parsens & 
                        Will Steal for an elusive treasure chest in 
                        Mission 5:  Amon Hen.  

                        Added a tip for the Cave Trolls under the 
                        secret mission, courtesy of HowYouDoin1002.  

                        I want to thank everyone out there who has 
                        helped to contribute to this guide.  All tips 
                        and hints are helpful.  There are many others 
                        who provided the same tips as those in this 
                        guide and that help was GREATLY appreciated.  
                        Thank you!  

                        Also, added "Hosting Log" section and did 
                        some rearranging of the general layout.  

V 2.55  (11/19/02)  -   Added some cheat codes to the "SECRETS & 
                        CODES" section.  (Thanks to SumnerSecrets for 
                        these.)

v 2.50  (11/18/02)  -   Fixed some things and added a tip on how to 
                        obtain the elusive treasure chest Mission 7:  
                        Plains of Rohan.  (Thanks to Rafael Murphy 
                        for this.)  

v 2.00  (11/17/02)  -   Updated the secret mission to include 
                        strategies for Legolas and Gimli.  Also, added 
                        tips and strategies for Mission 4:  Balin's 
                        Tomb and Mission 9:  Gap of Rohan.  These tips 
                        were provided by Michael Mittag.   Added some 
                        alternate general strategies for the secret 
                        mission, courtesy of AzureXVIII. (Thanks 
                        guys!)

                        strategies for both Legolas and Gimli, so

                        Also completed Aragorn’s portion of the

***********************  I. PURPOSE OF BEING  *************************
***********************************************************************

So, I wrote this FAQ to (hopefully) help gamers and give them an 
in-depth look into the video game “The Lord of the Rings:  The Two 
Towers.”  Okay, I was bored too.  

This is my first FAQ.  I attempted to play through every level with 
Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, documenting strategies specific to each 
character.  Some of the strategies are the same, but some (especially 
later levels differ quite dramatically)  It might be a little long, 
but I hope it’s helpful for you.

CONTROLS
========
Guard = Square (S) button
Speed Attack = (X) button
Fierce Attack = Triangle (T) button
Push An Enemy = Circle (C) button

Bow & Arrow
-----------
Press and hold the L1 button.  You can aim by using the left analog 
stick.  A little bright dot will appear above your target.  To fire 
an arrow, press (X) or (T) while holding down L1.  Your character will 
auto-aim most of the time, but there will be instances when you might 
have to do the aiming manually.  

However, be careful when firing arrows, because it could leave you 
very vulnerable to attack.

==============
ATTACK RATINGS
==============
When you attack an enemy, you will get an "attack rating" for how 
skillfully you disposed of that enemy.  The four ratings are:  

Fair
Good
Excellent
Perfect

The higher the attack rating, the more experience you will gain.  To 
get high attack ratings (good, excellent, perfect), try to defeat your 
enemies without getting hit.  If you defeat enough enemies without 
getting hit, you Skill Meter will fill up and glow.  When this happens, 
your attacks will inflict more damage - for a short period of time.  

Example:  one hit will defeat an enemy, giving you a "perfect" attack 
rating for that enemy and thus rewarding you with more experience.  


Filling the Skill Meter Quickly
-------------------------------
To fill the skill meter quickly, use special combination attacks.  
These can be purchased after each mission.  You will know when you 
pull off a combo attack because the name of the move will appear in 
the bottom left corner of the screen.  

Just make certain your combo attacks actually hit you enemies, 
otherwise your skill meter will not fill up.  If you do this, you'll 
soon be hacking with joy at your foes.

Note:  On the linked "Bane" moves, in order for them to work properly, 
       you must first wait for an enemy to attack you.  Then, parry 
       the attack with the square (S) button.  Immediately follow this 
       up by pressing both the (X) button and the (R1) button at the 
       same time.  All Banes work the same way.  But they will only 
       work if you have purchased the proper upgrade.  For example, if 
       you purchased only Goblin Bane but not Orc Bane, a bane move 
       will not yet work on an orc.

==================
TIPS FOR UPGRADING
==================

After you complete a mission with each character, purchase ALL the 
upgrades you can.  Don't worry about saving up your upgrade points for 
later.  Just buy all the upgrades you can between missions because they 
will most likely be very helpful in the missions to come.

*************************  VI. DA WALKTHROUGH  ************************
***********************************************************************

=======================================================================
---------------------MISSION 1 - PROLOGUE (ISILDUR)--------------------
=======================================================================

Part I - Guard & Speed attacks

There is a long intro movie cutscene, and suddenly you are dropped in 
the middle of the Orc carnage.  

Don't worry - you can't die here, so just follow the button 
instructions that flash on the screen to get a feel for the game 
controls.  

Guard = Square (S) button
Speed Attack = (X) button
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

After fighting a bit, there will be a rendered cutscene with archers 
and some orcs running around.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - Fierce Attack  

Here you will go back to the action and learn the fierce attack.  
This attack is to be used on enemies with shields.  A fierce attack 
will break the enemy's shield, allowing you to then use other attacks 
to damage it.  If you do not use fierce attacks, to destroy their 
shields, you cannot damage them.  

Fierce Attack = Triangle (T) button

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Soon, Mt. Doom will erupt.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part III - Go Berserk!  

Just get a feel for how the controls work, trying differing tactics 
to what works best for you.  Practice trying to string attacks together 
and build up your skill meter, so you will get "Perfect" attack ratings 
and gain more experience.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Okay, so when he sees that you winning, Sauron will show up and reek 
havoc on your armies.  But, Ilsildur will take up his father's sword 
and defeat Sauron (in one blow, I might add).  The One Ring will pass 
to Ilsildur, but to the grief of us all, he does not destroy it . . . 
The story then shifts to Aragorn.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

=======================================================================
------------------MISSON 2 - WEATHERTOP (ARAGORN ONLY)-----------------
=======================================================================

Part I - Get ready to rumble!  

The Ring Wraiths will attack.  Run to the bonfire in the middle of 
Weathertop and attack it to light your torch.  Once your torch is lit, 
you must attack the Ring Wraiths.  The most effective way to do this is 
to parry their attacks with the (S) button and then use a fierce (T) 
attack  to hit them.  Make sure your torch stays lit, otherwise you 
will not damage the Ring Wraiths.  If you get knocked down, your torch 
will fizzle - just re-light it.  

Just keep parrying any attacks using the (S) button and then smack 
them with fierce attacks (T).  Each Ring Wraith takes about three hits 
before it will run away.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Once you defeat two Ring Wraiths, Aragorn will tell Frodo to keep away 
from the Ring Wraiths.  Frodo then dons the ring and becomes invisible.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Now, when you fight the Ring Wraiths, a gray Frodo 
can be seen scampering about Weathertop.  Defeat one more Ring Wraith 
and . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE  

The Wraiths get angry and surround Frodo.  (Yes, even though he is 
invisible, they can still see him).  The Wraiths stab him.  Now for 
the tricky part . . .
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part II - Protect Frodo!  

Frodo is down!  Repeat - Frodo is down!  Now, you must fend off the 
Ring Wraiths AND protect Frodo.  An energy meter showing Frodo's life 
will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.  

A bunch of Ring Wraiths will close in.  Only concern yourself with the 
ones that get close to Frodo.  If they get too close, they will stab 
Frodo, and that's not good 'cause if Frodo dies, it's game over.  

Again, fend off ring wraiths with fierce attacks (T).  Make sure your 
torch stays lit and don't get too far away from Frodo because this will 
leave him vulnerable.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

After defeating the Ring Wraiths, you will have completed the mission 
and will be rewarded with a movie cutscene of the forming of the 
Fellowship in Rivendell.  Here, you will acquire two new characters:  
Legolas and Gimli!  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

=======================================================================
-----------------------MISSION 3 - GATES OF MORIA----------------------
=======================================================================

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:

The Fellowship travels to Moria.  Gandalf and friends decide to wait as 
you scout ahead for danger.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------
Part I - The Mountain

Gimli will join you.  Run to the bottom left corner of the screen to 
attack the treasure chest in the ice.  Break it with a fierce attack 
(T).  Inside is an experience block that'll give you, well experience 
points.  Those are always handy.

Run to the right and around the cliff.  When Gimli says, "There are 
orcs - many of them," three orcs will attack from the cliff on the 
left.  Dispose of them.  

Move ahead a bit and three orcs will bust out of the mountain side and 
attack.  Remember to use combo attacks . . .  

Farther ahead, two orcs will burst out of the rock, and soon two more 
will join them.  After you defeat them, be sure to check out the 
treasure chest in the newly formed cave on the left.  Inside is a 
"full life" potion.  Move on.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE: 

Gimli runs out ahead to take down some more orcs.  But an orc creeps up 
behind him.  Aragorn will shoot an arrow, taking out the enemy.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the game.  Here, there are three orc archers that shoot flaming 
arrows at you.  The fastest way to take them out is to use your bow and 
fire arrows back at them.  Take out the three orc archers quickly with 
your arrows because in a minute three to four more orcs will jump off 
the mountain side and dash at you with that hungry look in their eyes.  

Once finished with that, dash down to the ravine, and run across, 
making sure to pick up any items that the fallen orcs drop.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

When you run across the ravine, Gimli suggests entering the mines of 
Moria.  While this is going on, orc archers set up camp on the 
mountainside and begin launching a barrage of arrows.  Aragorn deflects 
them, and it's back to the action.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, there are three orc archers in the distance, but you've got other 
things to worry about because an orc will rush down to where you are 
standing and pick on you.  Once you tell that orc to go away, quickly 
take out the orc archers with your arrows (this is the only way you 
can hit them).  Once you do this, more rabid orcs will appear to cause 
you trouble.  Fierce (T) and Combo attacks work best here.  Use them 
to build up your skill meter.  

Run on ahead.  More walls will break, and more orcs will attack (I see 
a pattern here).  If you need to, break the treasure chest - it has a 
quiver of 20 arrows.  

Running forward, you will soon meet two orc archers.  Don't worry 
about firing arrows, just run up to them and take them out with your 
sword.  While you're disposing of the archers, three more orcs will 
run down the path to attack you - so be ready.  I recommend getting 
rid of the archers first because they can just be annoying.  

Move on up the mountain path to find two orcs just waiting to attack 
you.  Use combo attacks to quickly take them out quickly because you 
also have to worry about two new orc archers.  Just fire your arrows 
at them.  They'll each go down with two hits.  One of the archers will 
drop a quiver of twenty arrows - be sure to pick it up.  


Part II - The Marsh

Okay, after this, move on ahead.  The camera will shift, and you will 
find yourself in a swampy marshy area.  Make your way forward through 
the muck.  Two orcs will leap up from the water and attack.  Knock 
them down with fierce attacks.  If they don't die right away, press 
the R2 button to thrust your sword downward into the water, finishing 
them off.  

Move quickly through the water and get up on the shore as soon as you 
can.  This will give you greater maneuverability.  More orcs will jump 
out of the water and attack.  Take care of them and walk back into the 
water to move ahead.  There will be some archers firing at you again 
(surprise!).  Hit them with arrows first if you can.  But be careful 
because more orcs will jump out of the water and come after you.  

Next is a place where you will have to move through a pretty narrow 
area of the marsh.  But there is a problem:  a bunch (about four) 
archers are firing at you.  Stay away from them and shoot a few arrows 
to take them down.  Be sure to dodge their arrows because this area can 
get really frustrating if you get hit by about four arrows in a row 
(ouch!).  DO NOT move forward until the archers have been defeated 
because if you do, an army of orcs will rise from the water, creating 
a bigger problem than you want.  

Once the archers are defeated, quickly move through the narrow area of 
the marsh and get up on shore as fast as you can.  Remember that army 
of orcs I told you about?  Well, here they come.  

If you are low on life, there is a treasure chest with a "full life" 
potion in it at the end of the shoreline.  A few more orcs will attack.  
Just take them out with your sword and march onward toward the 
pond/swamp area next to the Gates of Moria.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:

You will see The Watcher.  Gimli is knocked down, and you must fight 
it alone.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

******************
BOSS - THE WATCHER
******************

Don't worry - if you die here, you can continue without having to go 
through the level again.  You'll just have to fight The Watcher again.  

The Watcher stays in the water (except for its tentacles which slap 
you silly if you're not careful).  You need to get him to show his 
face.  But first, quickly pick up the quiver of arrows conveniently 
located on the left end of the shoreline - you will need them.  

Now, wade into the water and wait for a tentacle to appear.  When one 
does, get close to it and make sure to parry its attack (this is key).  
Once you parry, the tentacle will be shocked briefly and flail in the 
air for a moment.  Use this opportunity to quickly slice the tentacle 
(with a quick or fierce attack).  Then, the Watcher will roar, and its 
head will surface on the water.  

You must attack the head, but you cannot attack it directly with sword 
attacks.  Use your arrows to.  

Note:  Only fire ONCE every time the head surfaces.  Trying to hit it 
       with more than one arrow will only waste your precious arrows.

Okay, just keep slicing the tentacles and hitting its head with arrows 
until the Watcher goes away.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Now Gimli is miraculously okay!  Thanks for the help, man.  The 
Fellowship enters the long dark of Moria.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 3***


----------
AS LEGOLAS
----------

Part I - The Mountain

Gimli will join you.  Run to the bottom left corner of the screen to 
attack the treasure chest in the ice.  Break it with a fierce attack 
(T).  Inside is an experience block that'll give you, well experience 
points.  Those are always handy.

Run to the right and around the cliff.  When Gimli says, "There are 
orcs - many of them," three orcs will attack from the cliff on the 
left.  Dispose of them.  

Move ahead a bit and three orcs will bust out of the mountainside and 
attack.  Remember Legolas doesn't really have any special combo attacks 
yet, so be careful.  

Farther ahead, two orcs will burst out of the rock, and soon two more 
will join them.  After you defeat them, be sure to check out the 
treasure chest in the newly formed cave on the left.  Inside is a "full 
life" potion.  Move on.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE: 

Gimli runs out ahead to take down some more orcs.  But an orc creeps up 
behind him.  Legolas will shoot an arrow, taking out the enemy.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the game.  Here, there are three orc archers that shoot flaming 
arrows at you.  The fastest way to take them out is to use your bow and 
fire arrows back at them.  Take out the three archers quickly with your 
arrows because in a minute three to four more orcs will jump off the 
mountain side and dash at you with that hungry look in their eyes.  If 
you see them coming, you can probably take out one or two with your 
arrows before they get to you because Legolas is rather quick with 
arrows.  

Once finished with that, dash down to the ravine, and run across, 
making sure to pick up any items that the fallen orcs drop.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

When you run across the ravine, Gimli suggests entering the mines of 
Moria.  While this is going on, orc archers set up camp on the 
mountainside and begin launching a barrage of arrows.  Legolas deflects 
them, and it's back to the action.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, there are three orc archers in the distance, and there's also an 
orc running down to play with you.  Take out as many of the archers as 
you can before the running orc gets to you.  Okay, now smack this 
running orc silly with your swords and then quickly shoot the 
remaining orc archers with your arrows (this is the only way you can 
hit them).  Once you do this, more rabid orcs will appear to cause 
you trouble.  Fierce (T) attacks work best here.  You can defeat the 
orcs in two hits - just don't get surrounded because with minimal 
combo attacks right now, Legolas isn't the greatest at hand-to-hand 
warfare.  

Run on ahead.  More walls will break, and more orcs will attack (I see 
a pattern here).  If you need to, break the treasure chest - it has a 
quiver of arrows.  

This next bit happens pretty fast.  Running forward, you will soon 
meet two orc archers.  Defeat as many of the archers as you can with 
your arrows quickly because three more orcs will run down the path to 
attack you.  And since you've got your bow ready, take out or at least 
weaken a few of the rushing orcs as they head toward you.  If they get 
too close, just wail with your swords.  Now, take out any remaining 
archers.    

Move on up the mountain path to find two orcs just waiting to attack 
you.  Use fierce (T) attacks to quickly take them out quickly because 
you also have to worry about two new orc archers.  Just fire your 
arrows at them.  They'll each go down with two hits.  One of the 
archers will drop a quiver of twenty arrows - be sure to pick it up.  


Part II - The Marsh

Okay, after this, move on ahead.  The camera will shift, and you will 
find yourself in a swampy marshy area.  Make your way forward through 
the muck.  Two orcs will leap up from the water and attack.  Try and 
hit them with arrows before they reach you.  But you might have to 
engage in swordplay.  When in close combat, if an orc doesn't die right 
away, press the R2 button to thrust your sword downward into the water, 
finishing him off.  

Move quickly through the water and get up on the shore as soon as you 
can.  This will give you greater maneuverability.  More orcs will jump 
out of the water and attack.  Same strategy - you've got arrows: USE 
THEM!  Shoot all the orcs here that you can; it makes it much easier.  
Walk back into the water to move ahead.  There will be some archers 
firing at you again (surprise!).  Hit them with arrows first if you 
can.  But be careful because more orcs will jump out of the water and 
come after you.  

Next is a place where you will have to move through a pretty narrow 
area of the marsh.  But there is a problem:  a bunch (about four) 
archers are firing at you.  Stay away from them and shoot a few arrows

get really frustrating if you get hit by about four arrows in a row 
(ouch!).  DO NOT move forward until the archers have been defeated 
because if you do, an army of orcs will rise from the water, creating 
a bigger problem than you want, especially with Legolas.  

Once the archers are defeated, quickly move through the narrow area 
of the marsh and get up on shore as fast as you can.  Remember that 
army of orcs I told you about?  Well, here they come.  Take out the 
first wave of orcs with your arrows (what else?), but resort to your 
sword if they get too close.  Then, finish off any orcs in the distance 
with your arrows.  (If you're feeling brave, I suppose you could take 
them on with sword attacks, although I don't recommend it.)  

If you are low on life, there is a treasure chest with a "full life" 
potion in it at the end of the shoreline.  A few more orcs will attack.  
The orcs in this area might swarm in pretty fast, so you will probably 
be forced to use sword attacks.  Fierce (T) attacks tend to work well 
here, as two taps of the (T) button will probably kill an attacking orc.  
Just be careful not to get surrounded because Legolas can't take hits 
like Aragorn and Gimli can.  After you're finished here, march onward 
toward the pond/swamp area next to the Gates of Moria.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

You will see The Watcher.  Gimli is knocked down, and you must fight

AS GIMLI

Part I - The Mountain

Aragorn will join you.  Run to the bottom left corner of the screen to 
attack the treasure chest in the ice.  Break it with a fierce attack 
(T).  Inside is an experience block that'll give you, well experience 
points.  Those are always handy.

arrows at you.  Don't worry about them yet because in a minute three to 
four more orcs will jump off the mountainside and dash at you with that 
hungry look in their eyes.  Just run into the attacking orcs head-on, 
taking them out with mighty speed (X) attacks.  After that, defeat the 
archers on the ground level and then hurl some throwing axes (just like 
you would arrows) up at the archer on the ledge to finish him off.  
Remember though, Gimli is a bit slow with the throwing axes.  

Once finished with that, dash down to the ravine, and run across, 
making sure to pick up any items that the fallen orcs drop.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Moria.  While this is going on, orc archers set up camp on the

them, and it's back to the action.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, there are three orc archers in the distance, and there's also an 
orc running down to play with you.  This could get a bit tough, but 
defeat the running orc with speed (X) attacks, as fierce attacks are 
too slow here.  Stop (when you have a free moment) and hurl some of 
your throwing axes up at the archers.  Some more orcs will appear, 
and you'll have to contend with them for now.  Negotiate with extreme 
prejudice using speed (X) attacks.  Once the orcs are gone, dispose 
of any remaining archers.  

Note:  Be sure to pick up any health packs the orcs drop - you'll 
       probably need them.  

Run on ahead.  More walls will break, and more orcs will attack (I see 
a pattern here).  If you need to, break the treasure chest - it has 
some throwing axes.  

Running forward, you'll bump into two orc archers.  Just run up to 
them and smack them with speed (X) attacks, remembering to parry or 
dodge any incoming arrows.  While you're making the archers eat steel, 
about three more orcs will run down the mountain path, and like good 
little minions, start to pound on you.  Just use speed attacks again to 
get rid of them.  Take out the archers, if you haven't already.  

Move on up the mountain path to find two orcs just waiting to attack you.  
Dispose of them with speed (X) attacks.  Ahead, there are two archers.  
Chuck some throwing axes at the archer on the ledge.  When he goes down, 
just run up and hit the archer who is blocking your path with another 
speed (X) attack.  He'll drop a few throwing axes - be sure to pick 
them up.  


Part II - The Marsh

Okay, after this, move on ahead.  The camera will shift, and you will 
find yourself in a swampy marshy area.  Make your way forward through 
the muck.  Two orcs will leap up from the water and attack.  Knock them 
back down with speed (X) attacks.  If they don't die right away, press 
the R2 button to swing your axe down into the water, finishing them off.  

Move quickly through the water and get up on the shore as soon as you 
can.  This will give you greater maneuverability.  More orcs will jump 
out of the water and attack.  Same strategy - you've got arrows: USE 
THEM!  Shoot all the orcs here that you can; it makes it much easier.  
Walk back into the water to move ahead.  There will be some archers 
firing at you again (surprise!).  Worry about them later - just take 
out any attacking orcs.  When that's over, hurl a few throwing axes up 
to the archer on the ledge.  Then, just run over and greet the other 
archer with a speed (X) attack.  

Next is a place where you will have to move through a pretty narrow area 
of the marsh.  But there is a problem:  a bunch (about four) archers are 
firing at you.  Stay away from them and shoot a few arrows to take them 
down.  Be sure to dodge their arrows because this area can get really 
frustrating if you get hit by about four arrows in a row (ouch!).  DO 
NOT move forward just yet because if you do, an army of orcs will rise 
from the water, creating a bigger problem than you want.  Even with 
Gimli (the tank), just stay back and throw some axes to take down a few 
of the archers.  But don't worry about all the archers just yet.  

Instead, get up on the shoreline, and quickly move through the narrow 
area of the marsh and get up on shore as fast as you can.  Remember 
that army of orcs I told you about?  Well, here they come.  Head 
straight for the treasure chest with a "full life" potion in it at the 
end of the shoreline.  A few more orcs will attack.  Take care of them, 
dealing with any archers last.  You might take a beating here, so be 
careful.  

After you're finished here, march onward toward the pond/swamp area 
next to the Gates of Moria.

-----------------------MISSION 4 - BALIN’S TOMB------------------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:  

Aragorn (level 3)
  Isildur’s Swift Terror (X X T)

Legolas (level 2)
  Elrond’s War Rush (X X T)  

Gimli (level 2)
  Balin’s Swift Terror (X X T)  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The Fellowship enters Balin’s Tomb.  Gandalf reads from an ancient 
tome.  Orcs break through the door, and the battle ensues.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Aragorn is fairly descent in hand-to-hand combat because of his quick 
strikes.  So, don’t be afraid to throw him into the thick of battle.  

Many orcs will rush through the door, ready to attack.  Use fierce (T) 
attacks to break their shields.  Try and use combo attacks like 
Isildur’s Swift Terror (X X T) to build up your skill meter.  Stay 
relatively close to the door but not right next to it because you 
don’t want to get surrounded.  This way, you will be able to take down 
many oncoming enemies.  

If you build up your skill meter to where it glows, run directly to 
the door.  Stand in front of it and use a series of speed (X) attacks 
to slaughter a bunch of orcs with a “perfect” attack rating.  This is 
an effective way to build up loads of experience points.  

Don’t even bother with using your arrows.  Just use this time to get a 
better feel of how combo attacks function.  If you get surrounded or 
find yourself low on life, just run around to the back of the tomb.  
Scout the area for life potions because there is a good chance some 
orcs have dropped a few.  If there are no life potions, just continue 
to run around, dodging enemy attacks until your buddies in The 
Fellowship defeat some orcs, and a few potions DO drop.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Soon, the floor will rumble, and a Cave Troll will lumber in.  He 
doesn’t look too happy.  Now for the fun part . . .

Okay, the Cave Troll will come straight for you.  I’ll give you a tip - 
MOVE!  You can’t parry his giant club that he is so fond of swinging.  
So, you can use one of three methods to beat him:  

First Method:  
Use the rest of the members of The Fellowship to your advantage.  Let 
them handle things for a while.  Run away from the Cave Troll 
momentarily, letting him attack someone else.  (There is no one else 
to protect here - just yourself.)  When the Cave Troll swings his 
club, there will be a moment when hi pauses to pick up his weapon 
again.  In this moment, run in behind the Cave Troll and slap him with 
a fierce (T) attack.  Be careful not to get in front of him, as one 
whack of his club can take as much as 1/4 of your life (and that’s not 
fun).  

Second Method:  

Attack him head-on (if you’re brave and can time it right).  After he 
swings his club, dash up and hit him with ONE fierce (T) attack.  Then 
run away quickly because he will swing his club at you.  Be careful to 
only tap the (T) button ONCE when attacking him this way because if 
you tap it two or more times, you will perform two quick swings that 
leave you vulnerable to a blow from his club - and you WILL get smashed 
(ouch!).  

Third Method:  

When you fight the Cave Troll, use the L2 button to jump back. That 
is, run into him, deal two fierce blows, then jump back. The fierce 
blows will interrupt the troll's attack, and jumping back will make 
him just narrowly miss (and often take out any enemies that were 
creeping up on you). Repeat. He'll go down fast. I've yet to try and 
combo the guy.  (Special thanks to Michael Mittag for this method.)

Just continue using one of the above methods, ignoring the rest of the 
orcs in the tomb.  However, some orcs will drop life potions 
periodically, so keep your eyes open for them.  Try and pick up a life 
potion before the Cave Troll’s life drops by 1/3 (trust me - you’ll 
need it) because when that happens . . . 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The Cave Troll trades his club for a Chain Whip.  Aragorn will then 
leap up on a ledge.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - The Chain Whip  

You have a very limited space to move here.  But make the most of it.  
There are two sections to this ledge:  a left portion & a right 
portion (great names, huh?).  On each of these sections stand three 
pillars which you will use for defense.  

But enough about that because right away, an orc will attack you from 
the left.  Dispose of him with fierce (T) attacks.  

Now for the chain-wielding Cave Troll.  Get behind a pillar quickly 
because the monster will whip his chain at you.  And wouldn’t you 
rather have a pillar take the hit rather than you?  After he whips his 
chain, step out slightly from behind the pillar and fire your arrows 
at him.  

Note:  I recommend firing no more than two arrows at a time if you 
       shoot three or more at a time, you will most likely get smacked 
       by the Cave Troll’s chain.  

After firing your arrows, get behind the pillar again.  But be warned:  
the pillars will eventually break, leaving you open to attack.  If 
this happens, move to another pillar.  If you find yourself in the 
unfortunate situation where ALL of the pillars are broken, run around 
and wait for the Cave Troll to whip his chain (away from you!).  In 
the brief moment that he retracts his weapon, fire some arrows (again, 
no more than two at a time, unless you’re brave) at him.  Repeat this 
process.  

Now, from time to time, a pesky orc will make it his goal in life to 
annoy you by jumping up on the ledge and attacking you.  Get rid of 
him with fierce (T) attacks.  Sometimes, the orc will drop “full life” 
potions.  

So, if you find yourself running low on arrows, don’t worry, just run 
to the end of the right portion of the ledge.  There you will find a 
quiver of arrows conveniently waiting for you.  Pick them up and fire 
away.  Oh, and the quiver will periodically reappear.  

Another Strategy:  

If you stand near a pillar, the chain won't hit you. So you can keep 
standing beside a pillar and shoot arrows into the troll while he 
keeps bashing his chain. If you do this, the troll drops around the 
same time that you run out of pillars. (Special thanks to Michael 
Mittag for this strategy.)  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

When you beat the Cave Troll, he will fall over.  (Yay!)  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 4***


----------
AS LEGOLAS
----------

Legolas is pretty good for the hand-to-hand combat in this area.  

Many orcs will rush through the door, ready to attack.  Use fierce (T) 
attacks to break their shields.  A good combo attack to use here would 
be Elrond’s War Rush (X X T) - if you purchased it.  This will build 
up your skill meter rather quickly (about two combo attacks in a row 
will do it).  Stay farther away from the door so as not to get 
surrounded.  But, if you pull off enough combo attacks to get your 
skill meter glowing, don’t be afraid to rush the door and start 
hacking away at orcs.    

As with Aragorn, don’t bother with using your arrows.  Just use this 
time to get a better feel of how combo attacks function.  If you get 
surrounded or find yourself low on life, just run around to the back of 
the tomb.  Scout the area for life potions because there is a good 
chance some orcs have dropped a few.  If there are no life potions, 
just continue to run around, dodging enemy attacks until your buddies 
in The Fellowship defeat some orcs, and a few potions DO drop.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Soon, the floor will rumble, and a Cave Troll will lumber in.  He 
doesn’t look too happy.  Now for the fun part . . .

Note:  Legolas’ attacks fierce (T) attacks don’t do as much damage as 
       Aragorn’s or Gimli’s, but just keep pecking away at the Cave 
       Troll, using fierce (T) attacks.  You can do it!  

Third Method:  

When you fight the Cave Troll, use the L2 button to jump back. That is,

crucial with Legolas as one whip from the chain will take a good 1/3 
of your life meter.  After he whips his chain, step out slightly from 
behind the pillar and fire your arrows at him.  

Note:  Now, since Legolas is fast with arrows, you can probably shoot 
       off a good 3-4 arrows at once before having to take cover behind 
       the pillars again.  

After firing your arrows, get behind the pillar again.  But be warned:  
the pillars will eventually break, leaving you open to attack.  If this

--------
AS GIMLI
--------

Gimli is a tank - he can take the hits, so park yourself next to the 
door and hack away, attempting combo attacks to build up your skill 
meter, as this area is a fine place to gain lots of experience.    

Many orcs will rush through the door, ready to attack.  Now that you 
purchased some combo attacks after the last mission, use them.  An 
effective combo attack is Balin’s Swift Terror (X X T).  However, it 
will take about three of these combo attacks in a row to fill your 
skill meter.  But keep trying.  If you find you can’t pull off many 
combos with Gimli, don’t worry.  Instead, just use the good ‘ol fierce 
(T) attack to despose of your orc infestation problem.  

Don’t even bother with using your arrows.  Just use this time to get a 
better feel of how combo attacks function.  If you get surrounded or 
find yourself low on life, just run around to the back of the tomb.  
Scout the area for life potions because there is a good chance some 
orcs have dropped a few.  If there are no life potions, just continue

(5-6 hits).

the orcs in the tomb.  However, some orcs will drop life potions 
periodically, so keep your eyes open for them.  Try and pick up a

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - The Chain Whip  

Okay, get ready because this part of the fight is LONG with Gimli.  
Just think of it as an exercise in patience . . .

You have a very limited space to move here.  But make the most of it.  
There are two sections to this ledge:  a left portion & a right 
portion (great names, huh?).  On each of these sections stand three 
pillars which you will use for defense.  

But enough about that because right away, an orc will attack you from

Now for the chain-wielding Cave Troll.  Get behind a pillar quickly 
because the monster will whip his chain at you.  And wouldn’t you 
rather have a pillar take the hit rather than you?  After he whips 
his chain, step out slightly from behind the pillar and throw your 
axes at him.  

Note:  Since Gimli is slow at hurling axes, expect to only be able to 
       throw one at a time.  If you’re lucky, you can launch two 
       without getting smacked by the chain, but if you try this, 
       chances are you’ll eat some chain.  

After throwing your axe, get behind the pillar again.  But be warned:  
the pillars will eventually break, leaving you open to attack.  If 
this happens, move to another pillar.  If you find yourself in the 
unfortunate situation where ALL of the pillars are broken, run around 
and wait for the Cave Troll to whip his chain (away from you!).  In 
the brief moment that he retracts his weapon, throw an axe (again 
probably no more than one at a time - two if you’re brave) at him.  
Repeat this process.  

Now, from time to time, a pesky orc will make it his goal in life to 
annoy you by jumping up on the ledge and attacking you.  Get rid of 
him with fierce (T) attacks.  Sometimes, the orc will drop “full life” 
potions.  

So, if you find yourself running low on throwing axes, don’t worry, 
just run to the end of the right portion of the ledge.  There you will 
find a pack of hurling axes happily waiting there for you.  Pick them 
up and fire away.  Oh, and the pack will periodically reappear.  

Another Strategy:  

If you stand near a pillar, the chain won't hit you. So you can keep 
standing beside a pillar and throw axes at the troll while he keeps 
bashing his chain. If you do this, the troll drops around the same 
time that you run out of pillars. (Special thanks to Michael Mittag

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

A summary of some events from the film The Fellowship Of The Rings 
plays.  Aragorn explains that Moria was a dark journey for all of them.  
Gandalf falls into darkness in Moria.  There is a brief (and I mean 
BRIEF) section showing Lady Galadriel from Lothlórien.  Then, it cuts 
to Amon Deep where the Uruk-Hai attack, and Frodo runs off into the 
bushes.  Aragorn says that Frodo carries the fate of them all, and that 
you must defend him.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, this mission is LONG.  You have two things to keep track of here:  

Frodo's Life Meter (top right-hand corner of screen)
Defeating 75 Uruk-Hai (an Uruk-Hai meter is next to Frodo's)  

If Frodo's life meter depletes, you will fail the mission, so you must 
move quickly through this mission, taking out any and all Uruk-Hai 
along the way.  

----------
AS ARAGORN
---------- 

Part I - Hilltop  

Right away, about 16 Uruk-Hai will bombard you.  Thank goodness Legolas 
and Gimli are there to help out.  Use combo attacks and take out the 
charging Uruk-Hai.  The Uruk-Hai meter should read about 59 when you 
defeat all the enemies in this section.  

Note:  Don't constantly worry about what number the Uruk-Hai meter 
       says.  Just use it as a guide for how close you are to 
       completing the level.  (The closer it gets to "0", the closer 
       you are to the end of the mission.)  

Don't forget to run up the stone steps and grab the experience block 
in the treasure chest.  

Okay, running forward and on to the next area, you will be greeted by 
two Uruk-Hai and one archer.  Dispose of the attacking Uruk-Hai first 
and the archer last.  

Note:  You will see Uruk-Hai running through the trees from time to 
       time.  Unless they jump out of trees or fire arrows at you, 
       you cannot hit them, and they can't hit you.  So don't worry 
       about them.  

With Aragorn, archers will die with 5-6 arrows.  Be careful, though, 
because the archers' arrows will sometimes cause fires.  Obviously, 
avoid the fires at all costs or they will gladly suck all your life 
away very efficiently.  

With all the Uruk-Hai here defeated, move to the right to see a . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Lurtz (the Big Baddie) will bark orders to "Find the Halfling!" (He 
means Frodo.)  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


PART II - Arches & Archers  

In this new section, Gimli and Legolas have conveniently left you to 
battle alone (hmmmmm . . .).  But you will hear Legolas say:  "We must 
defeat these Uruk-Hai in order for Frodo to escape!"  

Right away, one Uruk-Hai will come down from the left to play.  Tell 
him to go away.  Take out the 3 archers perched around the stone 
arches in the distance with you arrows.  

As you're disposing of the archers, 2 more Uruk-Hai will leap out and 
run at you.  Make them eat steel.  If there are any archers left after 
this, shoot them with arrows because once you get closer to the stone 
arches, one more Uruk-Hai will leap out from the right and start 
whacking away at you.  

Note:  There is a treasure chest full of arrows on the left side of the 
       path by the tree.  Pick them up if you need them.  

Now, run down through the arches.  The camera will shift.  Turn left 
and run up to the top of the arches to pick up an experience block in 
another treasure chest.  

Some Uruk-Hai will run up on the arches and attack you.  Use arrows to 
fend them off before they get to you or just take them out with combo 
attacks (I recommend combo attacks).  Make your way back down the stone 
arches to the forest floor and run to your right, down the path to find 
3 Uruk-Hai slashing at you.  

Move on down the forest path.  The camera will shift again and you will 
be staring at 3 archers.  But, there is a little rock wall - it's your 
friend here.  Use it for cover as they fire at you.  Wait until the 
archers fire their arrows, then step out from behind the wall, shooting 
arrows back.  Focus on defeating one archer at a time as this will make 
it easier.  Be sure to get behind the wall periodically - unless you 
want to get pelted by raining arrows.  On the other side of the wall is 
a treasure chest full of arrows.  Restock.  Move on.  

In the next open area, about 3 Uruk-Hai will run out of the trees, but 
be careful here because more enemies will soon filter out of the forest, 
giving you about 9 Uruk-Hai in all to deal with.  Oh, and don't forget 
the annoying archer up on the rock hitting you with arrows.  Take him 
out with your own arrows.  

Move on to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

More Uruk-Hai running through the forest.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Three archers will be perched in the forest.  
Quickly get behind another conveniently placed rock wall, and use it as 
a shield.  This can get pretty annoying because the archers shoot their 
arrows, surrounding you with a circle of flames.  Stay away from the 
fire.  When you can, shoot the archers and just wait for the fire to 
fizzle out.  When it is safe, move on to your right.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Frodo will be hiding behind a tree, while Uruk-Hai warriors run past, 
with absolutely NO clue he is there.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


PART III - Courtyard Ruins

Looking ahead, you will see a sort of courtyard, and one archer ready 
to attack.  If you have enough arrows left, use them to defeat him from 
a great distance.  Run down to where he was (before he bit it).  The 
camera will shift, and you will be in the courtyard ruins.  About 3 
Uruk-Hai will run up some stairs and attack you.  Dispose of them.  

Note:  Before running down the stairs, look at the wall.  There is a 
       sort of doorway with some vines covering it.  Run over to it 
       and break the vines with about 2-3 fierce (T) attacks.  Run 
       inside to find a teasure chest with an experience block.  
       (Thanks to Will Steal and Jakob Parsons for this one.)  

Dash down the steps to the lower portion of the courtyard.  You will be 
greeted by more angry Uruk-Hai and 2 archers (you must use your arrows 
to defeat these archers).  

Move on to the left and down some more steps.  You will hear Legolas 
shout "Aragorn!"  And Gimli and Legolas will rejoin you.  Take care of 
any remaining Uruk-Hai and run toward the bridge.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli will dash onto the bridge and fight some 
Uruk-Hai.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PART IV - The Bridge  

Beat up as many Uruk-Hai as fast as you can here.  Your Uruk-Hai Meter 
should be getting really close to zero by now.  Check and make sure 
that Frodo still has some life 'cause you don't want him to die.  Combo 
attacks are your friend here, and so is a full skill meter.  To beat 
this section, defeat enough Uruk-Hai to bring your count down to "0".  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

A few Uruk-Hai will chase after Frodo, but luckily Legolas launches 
arrows at them, allowing the Hobbit a free route of escape.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, you just have to defeat any Uruk-Hai that come at you.  Boromir's 
(one of The Fellowship) life meter will appear in the upper right-hand 
corner of the screen.  Just survive until Boromir's life is depleted.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Sadly, Boromir dies.  That nasty Lurtz did it!  Go get him!  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

************
BOSS - LURTZ
************

Note:  If you die here, just continue, and you will automatically 
       restart from this point.  

Part I - Bows & Arrows  

Lurtz will fire flaming arrows at you.  Dodge them and fire some arrows 
back at him.  He will fire 3 three arrows successively and then pause.  
Use this time to pelt him with your arrows.  You can probably get off 
about 2-3 shots at once.  

Periodically, throughout the battle an annoying Uruk-Hai will attack 
you as well.  Be ready for that.  But, the plus side here is that 
sometimes he will drop "full life" potions.  That is good.  

After Lurtz takes about 5-6 arrows . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Lurtz will trade his bow for a sword.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PART II - Swords & Statues  

The camera will shift to a strange angle, giving you a limited view of 
the arena.  Be careful because Lurtz is FAST!  He will dash over to 
you (he likes to sneak up from behind) and efficiently make ground 
round out of you if you're not careful.  

So, there are six states around the perimeter of the arena.  Run over 
to one and try to get Lurtz to attack you.  Lurtz's sword will then 
get lodged in the statue.  While he is trying to pull it out, take 
this opportunity to slap him with 3-4 fierce (T) attacks.  

Be warned, though . . . the statue will soon break, and Lurtz will 
continue his pursuit of you.  When that happens, just run to another 
statue and repeat the process.  

Note:  If another annoying Uruk-Hai decides to join in the fun, just 
       hit him with fierce (T) attacks.  The best time to do this is 
       when Lurtz gets his sword stuck in one of the statues.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn will let Boromir rest in peace.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

AS LEGOLAS
----------

Part I - Hilltop  

This mission can be a bit tough with Legolas, as his sword attacks are 
not very strong.  Use your arrows frequently on this mission.  They 
will help immensely when fighting hordes of 10 Uruk-Hai or more.  

Right away, about 16 Uruk-Hai will bombard you.  Thank goodness Aragorn 
and Gimli are there to help out.  Use combo attacks and take out the 
charging Uruk-Hai.  The Uruk-Hai meter should read about 59 when you 
defeat all the enemies in this section.  

Note:  Don't constantly worry about what number the Uruk-Hai meter 
       says.  Just use it as a guide for how close you are to 
       completing the level.  (The closer it gets to "0", the closer 
       you are to the end of the mission.)  

Don't forget to run up the stone steps and grab the experience block 
in the treasure chest.  

Okay, running forward and on to the next area, you will be greeted by 
two Uruk-Hai and one archer.  Dispose of the attacking Uruk-Hai first 
and the archer last.  

Note:  You will see Uruk-Hai running through the trees from time to 
       time.  Unless they jump out of trees or fire arrows at you, 
       you cannot hit them, and they can't hit you.  So don't worry 
       about them.  

With Legolas, archers will die with about 4 arrows.  Be careful, 
though, because the archers' arrows will sometimes cause fires.  
Obviously, avoid the fires at all costs or they will gladly suck all 
your life away very efficiently.  

With all the Uruk-Hai here defeated, move to the right to see a . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Lurtz (the Big Baddie) will bark orders to "Find the Halfling!" (He 
means Frodo.)  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


PART II - Arches & Archers  

In this new section, Gimli and Aragorn have conveniently left you to 
battle alone (hmmmmm . . .).  But you will hear Legolas say:  "We must 
defeat these Uruk-Hai in order for Frodo to escape!"  

Right away, one Uruk-Hai will come down from the left to play.  Tell 
him to go away.  Take out the 3 archers perched around the stone 
arches in the distance with you arrows.  

As you're disposing of the archers, 2 more Uruk-Hai will leap out and 
run at you.  Pelt as many of the Uruk-Hai here as you can with arrows 
before they get to you.  Try not to get surrounded.  But if you do, 
run a safe distance away from your enemies then quickly turn around 
and launch more arrows.  

If there are any archers left after this, shoot them with arrows 
because once you get closer to the stone arches, one more Uruk-Hai 
will leap out from the right and start whacking away at you.  

Note:  There is a treasure chest full of arrows on the left side of the 
       path by the tree.  Pick them up if you need them.  

Now, run down through the arches.  The camera will shift.  Turn left 
and run up to the top of the arches to pick up an experience block in 
another treasure chest.  

Some Uruk-Hai will run up on the arches and attack you.  Use your 
arrows to fend them off one by one.  Only resort to sword attacks 
if you have to.  Make your way back down the stone arches to the 
forest floor and run to your right, down the path to find 3 Uruk-Hai 
slashing at you.  

Move on down the forest path.  The camera will shift again and you 
will be staring at 3 archers.  Not to worry, this is Legolas' forte.  
There is a little rock wall - it's your friend here.  Use it for cover 
as they fire at you.  Wait until the archers fire their arrows, then 
step out from behind the wall, shooting arrows back.  You can probably 
pick off one or two of the archers before they even get a shot off.  
On the other side of the wall is a treasure chest full of arrows.  
Restock.  Move on.  

In the next open area, about 3 Uruk-Hai will run out of the trees, but 
be careful here because more enemies will soon filter out of the 
forest, giving you about 9 Uruk-Hai in all to deal with.  Oh, and don't 
forget the annoying archer up on the rock hitting you with arrows.  So, 
if you haven't guessed, this part can get a bit tricky with Legolas.  
Take out as many Uruk-Hai as you can with your arrows.  When you see 
more Uruk-Hai coming, run back up the path a safe distance.  Then, 
turn around and fire more arrows at them.  This works pretty well to 
defeat the Uruk-Hai here.  (Just don't forget about the archer perched 
on the rock.)  

Move on to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

More Uruk-Hai running through the forest.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Three archers will be perched in the forest.  
Quickly get behind another conveniently placed rock wall, and use it 
as a shield.  This can get pretty annoying because the archers shoot 
their arrows, surrounding you with a circle of flames.  Stay away from 
the fire.  When you can, shoot the archers and just wait for the fire 
to fizzle out.  When it is safe, move on to your right.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Frodo will be hiding behind a tree, while Uruk-Hai warriors run past, 
with absolutely NO clue he is there.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


PART III - Courtyard Ruins

Looking ahead, you will see a sort of courtyard, and one archer ready 
to attack.  If you have enough arrows left, use them to defeat him 
from a great distance.  Run down to where he was (before he bit it).  
The camera will shift, and you will be in the courtyard ruins.  About 
3 Uruk-Hai will run up some stairs and attack you.  Just use your 
arrows here to take them out, unless they get too close.  

Note:  Before running down the stairs, look at the wall.  There is a 
       sort of doorway with some vines covering it.  Run over to it 
       and break the vines with about 2-3 fierce (T) attacks.  Run 
       inside to find a teasure chest with an experience block.  
       (Thanks to Will Steal and Jakob Parsons for this one.)  

Dash down the steps to the lower portion of the courtyard.  You will 
be greeted by more angry Uruk-Hai and 2 archers (you MUST use your 
arrows to defeat these archers).  

Move on to the left and down some more steps.  You will hear Aragorn 
shouting at you.  And he and Gimli will rejoin you.  Take care of any 
remaining Uruk-Hai and run toward the bridge.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli will dash onto the bridge and fight some 
Uruk-Hai.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PART IV - The Bridge  

Beat up as many Uruk-Hai as fast as you can here.  Your Uruk-Hai Meter 
should be getting really close to zero by now.  Check and make sure 
that Frodo still has some life 'cause you don't want him to die.  
Combo attacks are your friend here, and so is a full skill meter.  To 
beat this section, defeat enough Uruk-Hai to bring your count down to 
"0".  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

A few Uruk-Hai will chase after Frodo, but luckily Legolas launches 
arrows at them, allowing the Hobbit a free route of escape.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, you just have to defeat any Uruk-Hai that come at you.  Boromir's 
(one of The Fellowship) life meter will appear in the upper right-hand 
corner of the screen.  Just survive until Boromir's life is depleted.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Sadly, Boromir dies.  That nasty Lurtz did it!  Go get him!  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

************
BOSS - LURTZ
************

Note:  If you die here, just continue, and you will automatically 
       restart from this point.  

Part I - Bows & Arrows  

Lurtz will fire flaming arrows at you.  Dodge them and fire some arrows 
back at him.  He will fire 3 three arrows successively and then pause.  
Use this time to pelt him with your arrows.  Here, with Legolas, you 
can probably just keep pelting him with arrows non-stop.  

Periodically, throughout the battle an annoying Uruk-Hai will attack 
you as well.  Be ready for that.  But, the plus side here is that 
sometimes he will drop "full life" potions.  That is good.  

After Lurtz takes about 5-6 arrows . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Lurtz will trade his bow for a sword.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PART II - Swords & Statues  

The camera will shift to a strange angle, giving you a limited view of 
the arena.  Be careful because Lurtz is FAST!  He will dash over to 
you (he likes to sneak up from behind) and efficiently make ground 
round out of you if you're not careful.  

So, there are six states around the perimeter of the arena.  Run over 
to one and try to get Lurtz to attack you.  Lurtz's sword will then 
get lodged in the statue.  While he is trying to pull it out, take 
this opportunity to slap him with about 2 fierce (T) attacks.  

Be warned, though . . . the statue will soon break, and Lurtz will 
continue his pursuit of you.  When that happens, just run to another 
statue and repeat the process.  

Note:  If another annoying Uruk-Hai decides to join in the fun, just 
       hit him with fierce (T) attacks.  The best time to do this is 
       when Lurtz gets his sword stuck in one of the statues.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn will let Boromir rest in peace.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 5***


--------
AS GIMLI
--------

Part I - Hilltop  

Gimli lives for hand-to-hand combat.  He can dispose of an attacking 
Uruk-Hai in 1-2 hits.  

Right away, about 16 Uruk-Hai will bombard you.  Thank goodness Aragorn 
and Legolas are there to help out.  Use combo attacks and take out the 
charging Uruk-Hai.  The Uruk-Hai meter should read about 59 when you 
defeat all the enemies in this section.  

Note:  Don't constantly worry about what number the Uruk-Hai meter 
       says.  Just use it as a guide for how close you are to 
       completing the level.  (The closer it gets to "0", the closer 
       you are to the end of the mission.)  

Don't forget to run up the stone steps and grab the experience block 
in the treasure chest.  

Okay, running forward and on to the next area, you will be greeted by 
two Uruk-Hai and one archer.  Dispose of the attacking Uruk-Hai first 
and the archer last.  

Note:  You will see Uruk-Hai running through the trees from time to 
       time.  Unless they jump out of trees or fire arrows at you, 
       you cannot hit them, and they can't hit you.  So don't worry 
       about them.  

With Gimli, archers will die with about 4 throwing axes.  Be careful, 
though, because the archers' arrows will sometimes cause fires.  
Obviously, avoid the fires at all costs or they will gladly suck all 
your life away very efficiently.  

Note:  Gimli is slow with throwing axes (duh), so don't bother using 
       them unless that is the only way you can defeat an enemy.  
       (Besides, Gimli likes swinging his BIG axe better anyway!)  

With all the Uruk-Hai here defeated, move to the right to see a . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Lurtz (the Big Baddie) will bark orders to "Find the Halfling!" (He

Right away, one Uruk-Hai will come down from the left to play.  Tell 
him to go away.  Take out the attacking Uruk-Hai first.  Leave the 
archers on the arches for later.  

Two more Uruk-Hai will leap out and run at you.  Just defeat all the 
Uruk-Hai with Fierce (T) or combo attacks.  

As you get closer to the stone arches, one more Uruk-Hai will leap out 
from the right and start whacking away at you.  

Note:  There is a treasure chest full of throwing axes on the left side 
       of the path by the tree.  Pick them up if you really want them.  

Now, run down through the arches, taking out the archer with steel.  
The camera will shift.  Turn left and run up to the top of the arches 
to pick up an experience block in another treasure chest, taking care 
of any remaining archers on your way.    

Some Uruk-Hai will run up on the arches and attack you.  Just slap 
'em with your BIG axe.  Make your way back down the stone arches to 
the forest floor and run to your right, down the path to find 3 
Uruk-Hai slashing at you.  

Move on down the forest path.  The camera will shift again and you 
will be staring at 3 archers.  Use your throwing axes to defeat the 
archer located in the trees, using the stone wall that's there for 
protection from the other two archers.  After that, just charge the 
remaining archers and take them down with fierce (T) attacks.  

Note:  On the other side of the wall is a treasure chest full of 
       throwing axes if you really want them.  

In the next open area, about 3 Uruk-Hai will run out of the trees, but 
be careful here because more enemies will soon filter out of the 
forest, giving you about 9 Uruk-Hai in all to deal with.  Oh, and don't 
forget the annoying archer up on the rock hitting you with arrows.  
Gimli can take some pain, so run in there, slashing away.  When you're 
done, hit the archer on the rock with a few throwing axes (you have 
to . . .).  

Move on to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

More Uruk-Hai running through the forest.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Three archers will be perched in the forest.  
Quickly get behind another conveniently placed rock wall, and use it 
as a shield.  This can get pretty annoying because the archers shoot 
their arrows, surrounding you with a circle of flames.  Stay away from 
the fire.  When you can, launch some throwing axes at the archers and 
just wait for the fire to fizzle out.  When it is safe, move on to your 
right.  

Note:  If you find this part a bit too annoying, once the fires dies 
       down, you can just move on ahead and forget about the archers.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Frodo will be hiding behind a tree, while Uruk-Hai warriors run past, 
with absolutely NO clue he is there.

PART III - Courtyard Ruins

Lurtz will fire flaming arrows at you.  Dodge them.  He will fire 3 
three arrows successively and then pause.  Use this time to hurl some 
axes at him.  But this can be a bit tough with Gimli as you'll probably 
only be able to throw one (MAYBE two) when Lurtz pauses.  But keep at 
it!    

Periodically, throughout the battle an annoying Uruk-Hai will attack 
you as well.  Be ready for that.  But, the plus side here is that

=======================================================================
----------------------MISSION 6 - FANGORN FOREST-----------------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:  

Aragorn (Level 5)
  Goblin Bane (S X R2)

Legolas (Level 4)
  Goblin Bane (S X R2)

Gimli (Level 4)
  Goblin Bane (S X R2)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Merri & Pippin are taken away by the fleeing Uruk-Hai.  Legolas, 
Aragorn, and Gimli search for days, following their trail.  Soon, they 
come to Fangorn Forest and decide to split up to search for Uruk-Hai
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Run on ahead.  Destroy the log in your path with some fierce (T) 
attacks.  Move on until you come to a giant tree trunk blocking your 
way.  Three shielded orcs will burst out of the log, and four more 
orcs will attack you from behind.  Remember, use fierce (T) attacks 
to break their shields.  

Once you take care of all problems here, run into the giant log.  The 
camera will shift to inside the hollow trunk.  Run about halfway down 
the trunk, and the ceiling will collapse, giving you an Uruk-Hai to 
deal with.  Now, this Uruk-Hai has a very LONG sword that WILL hit you.  
And it is very hard to parry his attacks, so this can make him pretty 
annoying.  DO NOT fight him head-on.  (Oh, and arrows are useless 
here.)  Instead, run back out the way you came - up and out of the log 
into the big open area of the forest.  The sword-weilding Uruk-Hai will 
follow.  Dodge his attackss and wait for him to swing his sword around 
his head TWICE.  He will lose his balance and pause (you should hear a 
"clank" noise).  Use this opportunity to QUICKLY run up behind him and 
hit him with 1-2 fierce (T) attacks to knock him over.  Once he is on 
the ground, press the (R2) button to thrust your sword down and finish 
him off.  

Note:  The sword-weilding Uruk-Hai can turn around very fast.  So, be 
       sure to get up behind him quickly when he is vulnerable.  

When you are finished here, run back into the giant tree trunk and out 
the other end.  Break the small log in your path.  Move on.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Oh no, looks like you've got bigger problems than the sword-wielding 
Uruk-Hai because two orcs coming slamming through the trees and fly 
SMACK into the giant log.  I wonder what awful, horrible thing can 
toss orcs like rag dolls?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Run around the corner and into the open area to find a Cave Troll 
emerging from the trees.  (Remember this guy from Balin's Tomb?)  Don't 
worry, he's not as hard as he looks.  Just wait for him to swing his 
club, then run in and hit him with ONE fierce (T) attack.  Be sure to 
run away quickly (or press the [L2] button to jump back) because he 
will take a swing at you.  If you get too far away from him, he will 
throw logs at you - watch out!  

Just repeat this process until he falls over.  With Aragorn, he will 
go down in about 9 hits.  He drops a "full life" potion, so pick it 
up.  

Break the fence and run ahead to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

An bunch of orcs are playing around a giant hole in a camp.  They are 
too busy knocking each other in to notice you behind them.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sneak up on them and pull off a combo attack.  When they finally notice 
you, use fierce (T) attacks to break their shields.  

Note:  A happy treasure chest with a "full life" potion waits for you 
       near the back of the camp.  

Run on to the river in the distance.  

Here, the camera will shift, and some orcs will be waiting for you 
downstream:  2 archers & 1 shielded orc.  Take care of them and move 
upstream.  

The view will shift again.  Just wade upstream until two orcs leap out 
of the water wo attack.  Knock them over and use (R2) to thrust your 
weapon into the stream to finish them off.  

Note:  A good combo attack to use here is Goblin Bane (S X R2), as it 
       will defeat them in one movement.  

Four more orcs will attack and one shielded orc as well.  Beat them 
silly.  

When you're finished here, move on upstream and into the waterfall.  
You'll enter a cave.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Another Cave Troll will come for you.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Defeat this guy the same way you did the other.  But, be careful - this 
is a tight space in here.  Again, the Cave Troll will drop a "full 
life" potion.  

Note:  Be sure to get the experience block in the chest to the left.  

Now, run toward the screen until you come to a wooden fence.  Break it 
and run down to some vines blocking the exit.  Shatter them with a 
couple fierce (T) attacks.  

As soon as you do, a sword-wielding Uruk-Hai will come straight for 
you.  Be careful, because this is still a tight space.  Again, get 
behind him when he gets off balance.  Knock him down and finish him 
off when he is down.  

Move ahead on the path to be greeted by two orcs and an archer.  But 
that's not all:  a shielded orrc will also try to stab you in the butt.  
First, take down the attacking orcs.  Next, use your arrows to defeat 
the archer.  Break the log in your path and run ahead.  

In a bit, a horde of orcs will attack (too many to count).  Combos are 
your best friend here.  Once that is over, break the log in your way 
and move onward.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Two cave trolls come out and lay waste to some poor little orcs.  Guess 
what . . .  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


**************************
BOSS(ES) - TWO CAVE TROLLS
**************************

As if 1 wasn't enough . . . Now, you can choose one of two paths to get 
to your foes:  

Left - Break 3 logs
Right - Break some vines  

I say go right and break the vines.  Run through the tunnel past a chest 
with a "full life" potion and turn around to face both Cave Trolls.  

You'll have lots of space to work with here.  These guys aren't any 
different from the other Cave Trolls you've faced in the mission.  
There's just two of them now.  

The key here is to focus on one at a time, running up to use one fierce 
(T) attack between club swings.  Once you finish off one, move on to 
the last Cave Troll, using the same process.  

Now that they're no longer a problem, move over to the vines ahead - 
but not before picking up the experience block in the treasure chest.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Legolas, Aragorn, & Gimli meet up again, and find Gandalf The White.  
Gandalf explains that there is now a union between the Two Towers and 
that war is coming to Rohan.

AS LEGOLAS
----------

Even with Legolas, use mostly sword attacks on this level.  Run on 
ahead.  Destroy the log in your path with some fierce (T) attacks.  
Move on until you come to a giant tree trunk blocking your way.  Three 
shielded orcs will burst out of the log, and four more orcs will attack 
you from behind.  Remember, use fierce (T) attacks to break their 
shields.  

Once you take care of all problems here, run into the giant log.  The 
camera will shift to inside the hollow trunk.  Run about halfway down

Just repeat this process until he falls over.  With Legolas, he will 
go down in about 10-11 hits.  He drops a "full life" potion, so pick 
it up.  

Break the fence and run ahead to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

An bunch of orcs are playing around a giant hole in a camp.  They are 
too busy knocking each other in to notice you behind them.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sneak up on them and pull off a combo attack.  When they finally notice 
you, use fierce (T) attacks to break their shields.  

Note:  A happy treasure chest with a "full life" potion waits for you 
       near the back of the camp.  

Run on to the river in the distance.  

Here, the camera will shift, and some orcs will be waiting for you 
downstream:  2 archers & 1 shielded orc.  Take care of them and move 
upstream.  

The view will shift again.  Just wade upstream until two orcs leap 
out of the water wo attack.  Knock them over and use (R2) to thrust 
your weapon into the stream to finish them off.  

Note:  A good combo attack to use here is Goblin Bane (S X R2), as it 
       will defeat them in one movement.  

Four more orcs will attack and one shielded orc as well.  Beat them 
silly.  

When you're finished here, move on upstream and into the waterfall.  
You'll enter a cave.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Another Cave Troll will come for you.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Defeat this guy the same way you did the other.  But, be careful - this 
is a tight space in here.  Again, the Cave Troll will drop a "full 
life" potion.  

Note:  Be sure to get the experience block in the chest to the left.  

Now, run toward the screen until you come to a wooden fence.  Break it 
and run down to some vines blocking the exit.  Shatter them with a 
couple fierce (T) attacks.  

As soon as you do, a sword-wielding Uruk-Hai will come straight for 
you.  Be careful, because this is still a tight space.  Again, get 
behind him when he gets off balance.  Knock him down and finish him 
off when he is down.  

Move ahead on the path to be greeted by two orcs and an archer.  But 
that's not all:  a shielded orrc will also try to stab you in the butt.  
First, take down the attacking orcs.  Next, use your arrows to defeat 
the archer (it'll take about 2).  Break the log in your path and run 
ahead.  

In a bit, a horde of orcs will attack (too many to count).  Combos are 
your best friend here.  Once that is over, break the log in your way 
and move onward.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Two cave trolls come out and lay waste to some poor little orcs.  Guess 
what . . .  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


**************************
BOSS(ES) - TWO CAVE TROLLS
**************************

As if 1 wasn't enough . . . Now, you can choose one of two paths to get 
to your foes:  

Left - Break 3 logs
Right - Break some vines  

I say go right and break the vines.  Run through the tunnel past a 
chest with a "full life" potion and turn around to face both Cave 
Trolls.  

You'll have lots of space to work with here.  These guys aren't any 
different from the other Cave Trolls you've faced in the mission.  
There's just two of them now.  

The key here is to focus on one at a time, running up to use one fierce 
(T) attack between club swings.  Once you finish off one, move on to 
the last Cave Troll, using the same process.  

Now that they're no longer a problem, move over to the vines ahead - 
but not before picking up the experience block in the treasure chest.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Legolas, Aragorn, & Gimli meet up again, and find Gandalf The White.  
Gandalf explains that there is now a union between the Two Towers and 
that war is coming to Rohan.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 6***


--------
AS GIMLI
--------

Run on ahead.  Destroy the log in your path with some fierce (T) 
attacks.  Move on until you come to a giant tree trunk blocking your 
way.  Three shielded orcs will burst out of the log, and four more orcs 
will attack you from behind.  Remember, use fierce (T) attacks to break 
their shields.  

Once you take care of all problems here, run into the giant log.  The 
camera will shift to inside the hollow trunk.  Run about halfway down 
the trunk, and the ceiling will collapse, giving you an Uruk-Hai to 
deal with.  Now, this Uruk-Hai has a very LONG sword that WILL hit you.  
And it is very hard to parry his attacks, so this can make him pretty 
annoying.  DO NOT fight him head-on.  (Oh, and throwing axes are 
useless here.)  Instead, run back out the way you came - up and out of 
the log into the big open area of the forest.  The sword-weilding 
Uruk-Hai will follow.  Dodge his attackss and wait for him to swing his 
sword around his head TWICE.  He will lose his balance and pause (you 
should hear a "clank" noise).  Use this opportunity to QUICKLY run up 
behind him and hit him with 1-2 fierce (T) attacks to knock him over.  
Once he is on the ground, press the (R2) button to thrust your sword 
down and finish him off.  

Note:  The sword-weilding Uruk-Hai can turn around very fast.  So, be 
       sure to get up behind him quickly when he is vulnerable.  

When you are finished here, run back into the giant tree trunk and out 
the other end.  Break the small log in your path.  Move on.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Oh no, looks like you've got bigger problems than the sword-wielding 
Uruk-Hai because two orcs coming slamming through the trees and fly 
SMACK into the giant log.  I wonder what awful, horrible thing can toss 
orcs like rag dolls?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Run around the corner and into the open area to find a Cave Troll 
emerging from the trees.  (Remember this guy from Balin's Tomb?)  Don't 
worry, he's not as hard as he looks.  Just wait for him to swing his 
club, then run in and hit him with ONE fierce (T) attack.  Be sure to 
run away quickly (or press the [L2] button to jump back) because he will 
take a swing at you.  If you get too far away from him, he will throw 
logs at you - watch out!  

Just repeat this process until he falls over.  With Gimli, he will go 
down in about 5 hits.  He drops a "full life" potion, so pick it up.  

Break the fence and run ahead to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

First, take down the attacking orcs.  Next, you can use some throwing 
axes (about 2) to beat the archer, but why would you want to?  Just 
break the log in your path and whack him with your BIG axe instead.  
Move ahead.  

In a bit, a horde of orcs will attack (too many to count).  Combos are 
your best friend here.  Once that is over, break the log in your way 
and move onward.

=======================================================================
----------------------MISSION 7 - PLAINS OF ROHAN----------------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:  

Aragorn (level 5)
  Rising Attack

Legolas (level 5)  
  Rising Attack  

Gimli (level 4)  
  Rising Attack  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli ride across the Plains of Rohan.  They find 
Uruk-Hai raiding a village.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Gandalf The White will be with you briefly.  Both of you show up at the 
village gates.  Two Uruk-Hai attack immediately.  

Go inside the gates when you're finished with them.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Gandalf and Aragorn come in through the gates to find a horde of 
Uruk-Hai tormenting the villagers.  Gandalf knocks some Uruk-Hai back 
with his staff and says, "We must save all that we can or this village 
will fall."  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:  Okay, so you have to do what Gandalf says.  To save the 
       villagers, you must fight your way through the town VERY 
       QUICKLY.  A meter showing an approximation of the remaining 
       villagers will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the 
       screen.  If that depletes, you will fail the mission.  Ready?  
       Here we go!  

After the cutscene, you will be dropped in the village square with one 
problem:  a horde of Uruk-Hai coming after you.  There are a few 
villagers scurrying about here.  Defeat the Uruk-Hai while protecting 
the villagers.  When Gandalf says, "You must press on.  I am needed 
elsewhere," he will bust open a door on a nearby building and 
disappear.  Run inside.  

Inside, there are villagers trapped at the back wall by fire.  The 
stairs are also blocked by fire.  Destroy the table in the middle of 
the room, making your way back to a barrel by the stairs.  Break the 
barrel, and it will splash water all over the fire, allowing the 
villagers to escape.  

Run behind the counter to the left and break everything in your path 
to get to a treasure chest with an experience block.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Upstairs, Uruk-Hai are devastating more villagers (those meanies...).  
One of the townsfolk will be knocked down the stairs, putting out the 
fire in front of the steps.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

After the cutscene, an Uruk-Hai will charge in the door.  Get rid of 
him and run up the stairs.  

Upstairs, there are 2 Uruk-Hai and one archer going after some 
townsfolk.  Destroy the tables in front of the steps so you can pass 
and the villagers can escape.  (Don't let them die!)  Take care of the 
2 Uruk-Hai first, then run over to that archer who is standing in the 
door and take him out with fierce (T) attacks.  

Outside, there is a wide open space with a house to the right.  
Villagers will run out from behind the house, followed by a 
sword-wielding Uruk-Hai.  Don't let the people die.  Wait for the 
sword-wielding Uruk-Hai to get off balance, run behind him and take 
him down.  (If you're not careful, this guy can be a real pain.)  

Run around the house to find two archers standing on the downed roof 
of a cottage.  There is also a villager here.  Yet, he can't escape 
because there is some fire in his way.  Hurry and shoot the barrel 
next to the fire with an arrow, dousing the fire.  Now, the man can 
run away.  Now, just dash up and defeat the archers with fierce (T) 
attacks.  

After running over the downed roof, you will hear a woman shout, "Get 
us out - hurry!"  Here, there is a wooden barricade blocking the 
escape route of the villagers.  Don't touch the barricade yet, as it 
is on fire.  Shoot an arrow at a barrel nearby to put it out.  Now, 
run up to the barricade and destroy it with a few fierce (T) attacks.  

Note:  There is a treasure chest between the stone path and a house 
       here.  However, I don't suggest trying to get it just yet 
       because the house is on fire.  You will get caught in the 
       flames and happily watch your life evaporate.  

Now, with the barricade destroyed, run up the path to find 2 Uruk-Hai 
ready to say hello.  Once you dropkick them into next Tuesday, you 
will see a villager run out of a hole in the roof of a nearby building.  
He is on fire.  He is screaming.  He is dead.  Really - you can't save 
him.  Remember that treasure chest?  On this top level there are 
several barrels above the treaure chest below.  If you hit these and 
then run back down you will find that the chest with an experience 
block is available.  (Thanks to Rafael Murphy for this.)

Now, go back up to where you were and enter the building through 
the roof.  

Inside, you will be on the top floor.  Make your way around to the 
stairs, but be ready for a rabid Uruk-Hai coming up to get you.  Smack 
him down and run dash down the stairs.  Head for the door, taking out 
the Uruk-Hai there with your sword.  

Stepping outside, you will find yourself in an all-out brawl with an 
armada of Uruk-Hai.  Thank goodness Gandalf has come back to join you 
once more!  Beat down the Uruk-Hai with your sword as fast as you can.  

Note:  Beware - there are villagers trapped on an elevated platform, 
       and a sword-wielding Uruk-Hai is after them.  Just stuff him 
       full of arrows as fast as you can.  (This is the only way you 
       can hit him here.)  Don't let those villagers die!  If you need 
       them, there are some arrows over by a haystack on the right side 
       of the area.  

With all the Uruk-Hai in this area defeated, break the wooden cart to 
your left that is blocking your path.  

Note:  The cart will not break until ALL Uruk-Hai in this area are 
       beat down, meaning you can't proceed yet.  

Run up the path.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai are burning more of the village down.  An Uruk-Hai will push 
some villagers in a building and knock down the overhang to block the 
door.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Lots of Uruk-Hai are coming.  But let Gandalf and 
the soldiers take care of them for now.  What you have to do is quickly 
run to the right and up a bit to find the building with the wood 
blocking the door.  Destroy the barricade.  

Now, just defeat the remaining Uruk-Hai in this area.  Be careful, 
though, there are a few sword-wielding Uruk-Hai wandering around.  

When all the Uruk-Hai are vanquished . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The survivors leave the village, and Gandalf says, "We have done all we 
can.  The survivors will make their way to Helm's Deep.  You still have 
work to do.  I will come back to you at the turn of the tide."  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 7***


----------
AS LEGOLAS
----------

All right! Legolas can finally truly use his swords in this mission.  
Don't be afraid to run straight into combet.  But remember, again, that 
if you are surrounded and low on life at any time, run to a safe 
distance and pelt a few enemies with arrows.  Now, Gandalf The White 
will be with you briefly.  Both of you show up at the village gates.  
Two Uruk-Hai attack immediately.  

Go inside the gates when you're finished with them.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

route of the villagers.  Don't touch the barricade yet, as it is on 
fire.  Throw an axe at a barrel nearby to put it out.  Now, run up to 
the barricade and destroy it with a few fierce (T) attacks.  

Note:  There is a treasure chest between the stone path and a house 
       here.  However, I don't suggest trying to get it just yet 
       because the house is on fire.  You will get caught in the 
       flames and happily watch your life evaporate.  

Now, with the barricade destroyed, run up the path to find 2 Uruk-Hai 
ready to say hello.  Once you dropkick them into next Tuesday, you 
will see a villager run out of a hole in the roof of a nearby building.  
He is on fire.  He is screaming.  He is dead.  Really - you can't save 
him.  Remember that treasure chest?  On this top level there are 
several barrels above the treaure chest below.  If you hit these and 
then run back down you will find that the chest with an experience 
block is available.  (Thanks to Rafael Murphy for this.)

Now, go back up to where you were and enter the building through 
the roof.  

Inside, you will be on the top floor.  Make your way around to the 
stairs, but be ready for a rabid Uruk-Hai coming up to get you.  Smack 
him down and run dash down the stairs.  Head for the door, taking out 
the Uruk-Hai there with your axe.  

Stepping outside, you will find yourself in an all-out brawl with an 
armada of Uruk-Hai.  Thank goodness Gandalf has come back to join you 
once more!  Beat down the Uruk-Hai with your sword as fast as you can.  

Note:  Beware - there are villagers trapped on an elevated platform, 
       and a sword-wielding Uruk-Hai is after them.  Just stuff him 
       full of throwing axes as fast as you can.  (This is the only way 
       you can hit him here.)  Don't let those villagers die!  If you 
       need them, there are some throwing axes over by a haystack on 
       the right side of the area.  

With all the Uruk-Hai in this area defeated, break the wooden cart to 
your left that is blocking your path.  

Note:  The cart will not break until ALL Uruk-Hai in this area are 
       beat down, meaning you can't proceed yet.  

Run up the path.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai are burning more of the village down.  An Uruk-Hai will push 
some villagers in a building and knock down the overhang to block the 
door.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the action.  Lots of Uruk-Hai are coming.  But let Gandalf and 
the soldiers take care of them for now.  What you have to do is quickly 
run to the right and up a bit to find the building with the wood 
blocking the door.  Destroy the barricade.  

Now, just defeat the remaining Uruk-Hai in this area.  Be careful, 
though, there are a few sword-wielding Uruk-Hai wandering around.  

When all the Uruk-Hai are vanquished . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The survivors leave the village, and Gandalf says, "We have done all we 
can.  The survivors will make their way to Helm's Deep.  You still have 
work to do.  I will come back to you at the turn of the tide."

=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:

  Strength of Isildur (Health Increase)  

Legolas (level 5)
  Lothlorien Longbow (Sturdier Arrows)

Gimli (level 5)
  Rising Attack (on ground, push X)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

You are not alone in defending Rohan.  The king's men are also fighting 
their way through to Helm's Deep.  A soldier says the Uruk-Hai are 
using explosives in this area.  He needs your help.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Part I - The Town  

A soldier will join you, and you will be in an open area.  Notice the 
explosives in the barrels ahead of you.  Three Uruk-Hai will run up to 
attack you.  A couple archers will park next to the explosives.  Use 
you sword to defeat the attacking Uruk-Hai.  Or, if they are close 
enough to one of the explosives, shoot the barrels with your arrows 
to make them explode.  Do the same for the archers.  

Note:  When playing through this mission, be sure to stay away from any 
       suspicious looking barrels, as they are probably explosives.  

Move ahead.  The camera will shift, and you will see about 4 Uruk-Hai 
charging for you.  You can either wait for them to get to you, or just 
shoot the explosives straight ahead to take most of them out in one blow.  
Take care of any remaining Uruk-Hai.  

After this, move ahead.  Don't forget to go up and check the little 
stream for a treasure chest with an experience block.  

Keep going right to find two orcs.  Once you have disposed of them, 
move along the path.  A shielded orc will attack you.  

Next, the path will curve to the left around a hill.  Follow it.  But 
as soon as you turn the corner, you will see three Dynamite Uruk-Hai 
running toward you.  DO NOT let them get close to you because their 
only mission in life is to blow you up.  DO NOT attack them with you 
sword.  Instead, launch your arrows at them to ignite their dynamite 
and dispose of them.  Use this same technique for all three Dynamite 
Uruk-Hai.  

Run down the path and round the corner to the right.  Now, this part 
can get tricky.  A load of Uruk-Hai will attack you, along with many 
Dynamite Uruk-Hai.  Use combo attacks here while making your way 
through the area.  Make sure to use your arrows to pick off the 
Dynamite Uruk-Hai before they get to you.  Look for any life potions 
the Uruk-Hai may drop - you'll probably need them.  

Note:  Dynamite Uruk-Hai will continuous come running from the gates 
       ahead to attack you.  Pick them off with arrows.  There are 
       some arrows by a house on the left if you need them.  

Move ahead to gate in the distance.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai march down with more explosives.  Soldiers ahead shouting, 
"Hold them at the gate!"  The soldiers and Uruk-Hai start to duke it 
out.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - The Gate  

Right away, a shielded orc will attack.  Once he is out of your way, 
move forward on the path a bit to see a cart loaded with explosives.  
There are some Uruk-Hai walking around there too.  Shoot the 
explosives with arrows to rid of some enemies.  

Run down the path more to find many Uruk-Hai and archers fighting 
with soldiers by the gate.  Just shoot the explosives (there are a 
lot of them) to dispose of the enemies.  The gate will be on fire.  
Run through it.  

The camera will shift.  Aragorn will say, "It is impassible," and you 
will find 3 Uruk-Hai dashing up to greet you.  There are explosives 
all over this area.  Shoot the explosives to easily dispose of the 
Uruk-Hai.  Here, more Dynamite Uruk-Hai will constantly run at you 
again.  Be sure to pick them off with arrows.  

Round the corner to find yourself next to some houses.  Guess what?  
You're right - more Uruk-Hai are waiting.  There are some archers along 
the outside perimeter.  Once finished here, move toward the windmill in 
the distance.  A cart will block your path.  Destroy it with your 
sword.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai and archers will set up more explosives across the lake.  They 
are loading dynamite on to many carts.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part III - Crossing The Lake

More Uruk-Hai will attack.  Take them out and wade through the lake, 
headed for the other shore.  Dynamite Uruk-Hai will run out into the 
lake and come right for you.  Again, take them out with arrows before 
they reach you.  

Wading across the lake, more Uruk-Hai will leap out from the water, 
and archers will fire arrows at you from the other shore.  Use some 
arrows to rid yourself of the nuisance.  

When you get to the other shore, there may be some Uruk-Hai remaining.  
Just take them out.  Shoot the big cart full of explosives with arrows 
to see . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The cart will explode, starting a chain reaction that destroys all the 
dynamite Aragorn and the soldiers will march onward toward Helm's Deep.

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:

  Isildur’s Gambit (X T X X)

Legolas (level 5)
  Elrond’s Death Charge (X C T)

Gimli (level 5)
  Balin’s Death Charge (X C T)

Note:  This mission is actually a GREAT place for Aragorn and Legolas 
       To gain a lot of experience even though it is very short.  More 
       on that later.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Legolas will run up on a hilltop.  Aragorn can be heard saying, “We 
must not let the orcs reach the refugees.”  Then it cuts to a crow 
eating the corpse of an orc.  Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli cautiously 
inch forward into a village.  And suddenly two Warg Soldiers burst 
through a barricade and attack.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Part I - Town  

Legolas and Gimli are here.  Two Warg Soldiers will attack, lunging 
right at you.  Step aside, dodging their attacks.  Then quickly use a 
combo attack like Isildur’s Swift Terror (X X T) to hit them from 
behind.  Also, if you block the attack of a regular warg, you will get 
knocked down, but your rising attack sometimes hits.

Before you leave this area, run to the right, and break the barrel to 
get an experience block.  Then, head toward the top of the screen to 
the burning house with the boarded-up entrance.  To the right of this 
is another barrel.  Break it and pick up another experience block.  

Now, bash through the barricade on the house and move ahead.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn will run through the burning house and out the other side.  But 
wood will fall in front of the exit, trapping Legolas and Gimli inside.  
So, you’re alone again.  The Warg Captain will show up and say:  “Make 
them fear the Wolves of Isengard!”  And then a bunch of his minions 
will charge forward - with that special look in their eyes.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - River Bank

You will be standing in an open area with a river.  Two Wargs will 
attack at a time.  

This is a GREAT place for Aragorn to gain loads of experience.  Here’s 
a tip on how to get an “Excellent” or “Perfect” attack rating on EVERY 
Warg.  

Experience Trick:  Dodge any arrows the Wargs shoot at you.  When they 
                   lunge at you, dodge that attack too.  Now, quickly 
                   execute a combo attack like Isildur’s Swift Terror 
                   (X X T) on an enemy from behind.  Follow this up 
                   with a quick arrow.  You should get an “Excellent” 
                   attack rating.  Use this technique for all the 
                   attacking Wargs.  You will probably build up your 
                   skill meter quickly with this technique, resulting 
                   in a string of “Perfect” attacks.  You can gain 
                   about 2 levels using this trick here.  (Special 
                   thanks to [sammyc521] for this technique.)  

You will have to face about four Wargs in this section.  Then . . .  

*******************
BOSS - WARG CAPTAIN
*******************

The big dude decides it’s time to play.  It is hard to damage this 
guy, as if you get too close to him, his Warg will pick you up and 
fling you around.  That’s not good.  He lunges VERY quickly across the 
arena.  Oh, and he seems to dodge all of your arrows too . . . more on 
that later.  There are two methods to beat this guy.

Method 1:  

The Warg Captain will not charge beyond the water’s edge, so run down 
into the river.  Wait for him to lunge at you.  Don’t worry - he won’t 
hit you (unless you attack him, then he will stay there and pound you 
into the dirt).  He’ll turn around and head back to the top of the 
arena.  Once he lunges at you TWICE, the Warg Captain will take his 
place at the top of the arena, and his Warg will rear up on its hind 
legs, exposing its belly.  Now is your chance to run up and shash him 
with one or two combo attacks.  (If you are too far away, you can NOW 
pelt him with arrows, but they don’t damage him much.)  Then, run back 
down to the water and repeat the process.  

From time to time, another Warg Soldier will creep out from behind the 
rocks to attack you.  Use the “Experience Trick” from above to defeat 
them and get more, well, experience.  Sometimes, the Warg Soldiers 
will drop “full life” potions.  

Method 2:  

When fighting the warg leader - block. Just hit the square button as 
he lunges forward. The attack will throw you to the ground, but not do 
any harm. Keep in the middle of the open space, and you'll have enough 
time to block, yet you're close enough to hit him with a combo when 
he's vulnerable.  (Special thanks to Michael Mittag for this method.)  

When you defeat the Warg Captain . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Some rotting corpses of orcs.  Aragorn is heard saying, “Your people 
were defended, but we paid for it with many lives.  I almost lost an 
arm.  And so it is that the people of Rohan will make a final stand at 
Helm’s Deep.”  With Aragorn on his horse, all the villagers head for 
Helm’s Deep.

When fighting the warg leader - block. Just hit the square button as he 
lunges forward. The attack will throw you to the ground, but not do any 
harm. Keep in the middle of the open space, and you'll have enough time 
to block, yet you're close enough to hit him with a combo when he's 
vulnerable.  (Special thanks to Michael Mittag for this method.)  

When you defeat the Warg Captain . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Some rotting corpses of orcs.  Aragorn is heard saying, “Your people 
were defended, but we paid for it with many lives.  I almost lost an 
arm.  And so it is that the people of Rohan will make a final stand at 
Helm’s Deep.”  With Aragorn on his horse, all the villagers head for 
Helm’s Deep.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 9***

AS GIMLI
--------

Part I - Town  

Legolas and Aragorn are here.  Two Warg Soldiers will attack, lunging 
right at you.  Step aside, dodging their attacks.  Then quickly use a 
combo attack like Balin’s Swift Terror (X X T) to hit them from behind.  
Also, if you block the attack of a regular warg, you will get knocked 
down, but your rising attack sometimes hits.

Before you leave this area, run to the right, and break the barrel to 
get an experience block.  Then, head toward the top of the screen to 
the burning house with the boarded-up entrance.  To the right of this 
is another barrel.  Break it and pick up another experience block.  

Now, bash through the barricade on the house and move ahead.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Gimli will run through the burning house and out the other side.  But 
wood will fall in front of the exit, trapping Aragorn and Legolas 
inside.  So, you’re alone again.  The Warg Captain will show up and 
say:  “Make them fear the Wolves of Isengard!”  And then a bunch of 
his minions will charge forward - with that special look in their eyes.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - River Bank

You will be standing in an open area with a river.  Two Wargs will 
attack at a time.  

Note:  Unfortunately, unlike Aragorn and Legolas, Gimli is a bit too 
       slow to pull off the experience trick.  But, you should use 
       combo attacks, nonetheless, against the Warg soldiers.  You may 
       not receive an “Excellent” or “Perfect” attack rating, but it 
       never hurts to slash the enemies and still get as much 
       experience as you can.  

You will have to face about four Wargs in this section.  Then . . .  

*******************
BOSS - WARG CAPTAIN
*******************

The big dude decides it’s time to play.  It is hard to damage this guy, 
as if you get too close to him, his Warg will pick you up and fling you 
around.  That’s not good.  He lunges VERY quickly across the arena.  
Oh, and he seems to dodge all of your throwing axes too . . . more on 
that later.  There are two methods to beat this guy.  

Method 1:  

The Warg Captain will not charge beyond the water’s edge, so run down 
into the river.  Wait for him to lunge at you.  Don’t worry - he won’t 
hit you (unless you attack him, then he will stay there and pound you 
into the dirt).  He’ll turn around and head back to the top of the 
arena.  Once he lunges at you TWICE, the Warg Captain will take his 
place at the top of the arena, and his Warg will rear up on its hind 
legs, exposing its belly.  Now is your chance to run up and slash him 
with one or two combo attacks.  (If you are too far away, you can NOW 
pelt him with throwing axes, but they don’t damage him much.)  Then, 
run back down to the water and repeat the process.  

From time to time, another Warg Soldier will creep out from behind the 
rocks to attack you.  Sometimes, the Warg Soldiers will drop “full 
life” potions.  

Method 2:  

When fighting the warg leader - block. Just hit the square button as he 
lunges forward. The attack will throw you to the ground, but not do any 
harm. Keep in the middle of the open space, and you'll have enough time 
to block, yet you're close enough to hit him with a combo when he's 
vulnerable.  (Special thanks to Michael Mittag for this method.)

***You have completed Mission 9***



=======================================================================
-------------MISSION 10 - HELM'S DEEP 1: THE DEEPING WALL--------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:  

Aragorn (level 8)
  Wilderness Rage (Press and hold T)

Legolas (level 8)
  Elrond's Deliverance (T X X T)  

Gimli (level 6)
  Rune Of Protection (Increase Health)


Before the mission, let me just say your task is to DEFEND THE WALL and 
SURVIVE.  There are three sections of the wall that you must protect:  

The Left Section
The Right Section
The Middle Section

A few things to keep in mind during this mission:  

1.  Orcs and other nasty enemies are constantly climbing up the ladders 
    and getting on to the wall.  That is not good.  Keep the enemies 
    off the wall by constantly kicking the ladders over with the circle 
    (C) button.  

2.  In the upper right-hand corner of the screen is a miniature map 
    that shows the locations on the wall where ladders are being placed 
    by enemies.  (Each red circle on the map represents a ladder that 
    is currently going up on the wall.)  

3.  Also, on that same map, there is a meter that shows an 
    approximation of enemies on the wall.  The meter will change color 
    as the enemies accumulate:  

           Blue               = A few enemies
           Yellow             = A few more  
           Red                = Danger!  
           Flashing Red/White = Oh crap! (You fail mission)  

           Keep this meter Blue (or Yellow) by kicking over ladders
           with the circle (C) button and taking out any enemies 
           that make it up to the wall.  



Tips
----
Ladders:  Be sure to keep track of ALL portions of the wall, running 
          to sections of the wall that correspond to where red dots are 
          on the map.  If ladders pile up in a section of the wall, a 
          load of enemies is almost certainly there.  

Enemies:  Don't worry about taking out EVERY enemy on the wall by 
          yourself - other soldiers, plus your friends can help you out 
          there.  Instead, concentrate on continually kicking down 
          ladders at every point along the wall.  This will prevent 
          many enemies from even making it up to you.  

          Only take out enemies if they are in your way or there is a 
          big pile of them somewhere, and your meter is flashing 
          red/white.  And if you get in a situation where you are 
          trying to defeat ONE enemy, and he just won't die, this 
          wastes time.  Let him go and move on to knocking down more 
          ladders.  

          Sometimes, if an enemy is close enough to the edge of the 
          wall, you can just push them off by pressing the circle (C) 
          button.  

Chests:   On the left section of the wall is a chest with a "full life" 
          potion.  

          There are barrels with experience blocks on the left section 
          too.  

          A chest with a "full life" potion is at the end of the middle 
          section of the wall.  

          At the corner of the left and middle sections rests a barrel 
          with an experience block.  

Now for the mission:  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

This is the beginning of the battle for Helm's Deep.  Uruk-Hai and orcs 
sweat testosterone as they get ready to storm the wall.  Aragorn, 
Legolas, and Gimli stand, weapons in hand, preparing with their army 
for the coming storm.  Then, the orcs charge the wall, setting up 
ladders.  Gimli runs over to a ladder and knocks an orc off the wall.  
Then Legolas joins in the fun, doing the same.  He says, "There are 
enough for us both, Gimli."  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Part I - Orcs  

Now, you are dropped in the middle of the action.  Orcs will attack.  
Kick ladders off.  Constantly check all sections of the wall.  Use 
combo attacks like Orc Bane (S X R2) to instantly kill non-shielded 
orcs.  Isildur's Swift Terror (X X T) and Isildur's Death Charge 
(X C T) are also effective.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai fire flaming arrows up at the wall.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - Orcs & Uruk-Hai  

The rain of flaming arrows pelts the wall as more orcs attack.  If you 
are too close to the edge of the wall, you will get hit by flaming 
arrows.  Soon, Uruk-Hai will invade too, so be ready.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Oh no!  The Uruk-Hai bust out the catapult and start launching bombs!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Part III - Pandemonium!  

Huge bombs will bombard the walls!  (These can kill you in one hit - 
even if you have full life, so be careful!)  Stay away from the edges 
of the walls unless you have to kick a ladder over.  More Uruk-Hai will 
come.  As if that isn't enough, Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai start hanging 
around there too.  You're almost done!  Just keep kick over the 
ladders, and make sure to take out enemies with combo hits.  Build up 
your skill meter here if you can.  "Perfect" 1-hit attacks will really 
come in handy right about now.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Whew!  Thank goodness!  Here comes the Calvary!  Soldiers will line up 
on the wall and proceed to launch a barrage of arrows straight at the 
invading Uruk-Hai, fending them off.  Aragorn will kick one more ladder 
over (for good measure) and declare, "They are falling back.  It is 
over for now."  But, some Uruk-Hai use explosives to breach the wall.

This mission might be very tough with Gimli since he is slow at 
executing combo attacks.

Now, you are dropped in the middle of the action.  Orcs will attack.  
Kick ladders off.  Constantly check all sections of the wall.  Use 
combo attacks like Orc Bane (S X R2) to instantly kill non-shielded

  Bane Of Saruman (S X R2)

Your task is to protect the door to your left at all costs.  Stay close 
to it.  There is a meter in the upper right-hand corner of the screen 
that shows the defense of the door.  If that depletes, you fail the 
mission.  

All of the Uruk-Hai in this mission will attack the door.  Don't let 
them.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The villagers dash inside a door to take cover from another wave of 
attacking Uruk-Hai.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Part I - First Wave  

Right away, Uruk-Hai will attack from the distance.  First will be a 
wave of Dynamite Uruk-Hai.  Shoot your arrows at them.  If at any time 
you run low on arrows, you can run out into the open and pick up a few, 
as the Uruk-Hai like to drop arrows and life potions.  (But be sure to 
get back to the door.)  

Soon, some shielded orcs and other enemies will start invading also, 
heading straight for the door.  Use your sword and combo attacks such 
as Isildur's Gambit (X T X X).  Use Bane of Saruman to dispose of 
attacking Uruk-Hai (S X R2).  Try and build up your skill meter to 
unleash a barrage of "perfect" hits.  

Note:  When fighting other enemies, be sure to keep an eye out for 
       Dynamite Uruk-Hai coming.  If any are headed your way, try and 
       pick them off with arrows before they get to you.  

If you run into the wonderful situation of twenty or so orcs and 
Uruk-Hai banging on the door, and there's a Dynamite Uruk-Hai heading 
right for you, you can try another tactic:  let the dynamite Uruk-Hai 
come to the door where all the other enemies are.  He will then stop 
momentarily to light his explosives.  Now, run QUICKLY away to a safe 
distance and watch as the Dynamite Uruk-Hai explodes and takes out all 
the enemies by the door for you (What a nice guy)!  

Note:  Watch out for any sword-wielding Uruk-Hai that might show up.  

After a while . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The Uruk-Hai send archers to shoot flaming arrows at you.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part II - Second Wave  

A row of archers lines up, and now flaming arrows and bombs fly in your 
direction.  Pick as many of the archers off with your arrows as you can 
before any more Uruk-Hai (like a sword-wielder) come for you.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The Uruk-Hai are preparing a catapult.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part III - Third Wave (Cave Troll)  

If Dynamite Uruk-Hai start coming at you, try and pick them off with 
arrows when they are close to the archers.  That way, you'll take out 
a good portion of the archers too.  

Soon, a Cave Troll will want to play.  He'll lumber on down to you.  
Just wait for him to swing his club.  Then, run in and hit him with 
ONE fierce attack.  Run away.  Repeat this process.  But, you'll have 
to deal with more Dynamite Uruk-Hai at the same time.  So, between your 
attacks on the Cave Troll, take time to pick off the Dynamite Uruk-Hai 
with arrows.  Just don't let the Dynamite Uruk-Hai get through to you 
because you can easily bite the big one here if they pile up on you.  

After you get rid of the Cave Troll, shoot the rest of the Dynamite 
Uruk-Hai with arrows before they get to you.  If there are any archers 
left, run up and swing at them with your weapon (this is the fastest 
way).  Then, get back to the door.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Now, the Uruk-Hai actually wheel in the catapult and load it up.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***************
BOSS - CATAPULT
***************

Now, your target here is the catapult itself.  You must destroy it 
(duh).  But first, you have to leave the door and fight your way 
through a line of orcs and Uruk-Hai standing in front of the catapult.  
Remember, use combo attacks to defeat as many enemies as you can here.  

Once you make it through the enemy line, you must attack the catapult.  
There are three wooden panels:  

1 on the left
1 on the right
1 in the center

You must destroy all 3 panels on the catapult in order to defeat it.  

Don't worry about killing the Uruk-Hai now unless they attack you.  
Just focus on breaking each panel on the catapult QUICKLY because the 
door (the one you've been defending) will not hold much longer.  

Note :  Watch out for any portions of the ground that catch fire.  

Once you destroy all three panels . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The suspension on the catapult will break, and it will drop a bomb.  
The catapult will burst into a roar fiery goodness.  Legolas and Gimli 
will quickly dispose of the remaining Uruk-Hai.  The women and children 
are safe . . . for now.

Note:  Dragon Fire Arrows are very good to have here.  

Part I - First Wave  

Right away, Uruk-Hai will attack from the distance.  First will be a 
wave of Dynamite Uruk-Hai.  Shoot your arrows at them.  If at any time 
you run low on arrows, you can run out into the open and pick up a few, 
as the Uruk-Hai like to drop arrows and life potions.  (But be sure to 
get back to the door.)  

Note:  Dynamite Uruk-Hai will take about 3/4 of your life if they hit 
       you.  

Soon, some shielded orcs and other enemies will start invading also, 
heading straight for the door.  Legolas has arrows.  Use them.  Try 
and pick off as many enemies as you can before they get to you - no 
matter what kind of enemy it is.  But, if you have to use your sword, 
Elrond's Deliverance (T X X T) is a good combo to use.  

Note:  When fighting other enemies, be sure to keep an eye out for 
       Dynamite Uruk-Hai coming.  If any are headed your way, try and 
       pick them off with arrows before they get to you.  

You can hit an unshielded orc with an arrow and then run up and press 
the R2 button to thrust your weapon down and finish them off.  

Also, if you upgraded to Dragonfire Arrows, you can set the enemies on 
fire.  In a large group, setting one on fire can result in a chain 
reaction that sets all enemies ablaze.  


Tip:  Stand away from the door and pelt enemies with arrows.  With 
     Dragonfire arrows, it will set most of them ablaze, making it 
     easier to defeat them.  (After a while, the enemies just fall.)  

If you run into the wonderful situation of twenty or so orcs and 
Uruk-Hai banging on the door, and there's a Dynamite Uruk-Hai heading 
right for you, you can try another tactic:  let the dynamite Uruk-Hai

before any more Uruk-Hai (like a sword-wielder) come for you.  After 
you take care of annoying Uruk-Hai, be sure to take out ALL the 
archers.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:

Part III - Third Wave (Cave Troll)  

If Dynamite Uruk-Hai start coming at you, try and pick them off with 
arrows when they are close to the archers.  That way, you'll take out 
a good portion of the archers too.  

Soon, a Cave Troll will want to play.  He'll lumber on down to you.  
Your arrows will be ineffective against the Cave Troll.  Just wait for

After you get rid of the Cave Troll, shoot the rest of the Dynamite

is slow with throwing axes, do it anyway.  If at any time you run low 
on throwing axes, you can run out into the open and pick up a few, as 
the Uruk-Hai like to drop axes and life potions.  (But be sure to get 
back to the door.)  

Soon, some shielded orcs and other enemies will start invading also, 
heading straight for the door.  Use your big axe and combo attacks

be careful, more Uruk-Hai (like a sword-wielder) will come for you.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The Uruk-Hai are preparing a catapult.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Part III - Third Wave (Cave Troll)  

If Dynamite Uruk-Hai start coming at you, try and pick them off with 
throwing axes when they are close to the archers.  That way, you'll 
take out a good portion of the archers too.  

Soon, a Cave Troll will want to play.  He'll lumber on down to you.  
Just wait for him to swing his club.  Then, run in and hit him with 
ONE fierce attack.  Run away.  Repeat this process.  But, you'll have 
to deal with more Dynamite Uruk-Hai at the same time.  So, between your 
attacks on the Cave Troll, take time to pick off the Dynamite Uruk-Hai 
with throwing axes.  Just don't let the Dynamite Uruk-Hai get through 
to you because you can easily bite the big one here if they pile up on 
you.  

After you get rid of the Cave Troll, hurl throwing axes at the Dynamite 
Uruk-Hai before they get to you.  If there are any archers left, run up 
and swing at them with your weapon (this is the fastest way).  Then, 
get back to the door.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Now, the Uruk-Hai actually wheel in the catapult and load it up.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***************
BOSS - CATAPULT
***************

Now, your target here is the catapult itself.  You must destroy it 
(duh).  But first, you have to leave the door and fight your way 
through a line of orcs and Uruk-Hai standing in front of the catapult.  
Remember, use combo attacks to defeat as many enemies as you can here.  

Once you make it through the enemy line, you must attack the catapult.  
There are three wooden panels:  

1 on the left
1 on the right
1 in the center

You must destroy all 3 panels on the catapult in order to defeat it.  

Don't worry about killing the Uruk-Hai now unless they attack you.  
Just focus on breaking each panel on the catapult QUICKLY because the 
door (the one you've been defending) will not hold much longer.  

Note:  Watch out for any portions of the ground that catch fire.  

Once you destroy all three panels . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

The suspension on the catapult will break, and it will drop a bomb.  
The catapult will burst into a roar fiery goodness.  Legolas and Gimli 
will quickly dispose of the remaining Uruk-Hai.  The women and children 
are safe . . . for now.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed Mission 11***  


=======================================================================
------------MISSION 12 - HELM'S DEEP 3: HORNBURG COURTYARD-------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Upgrades/Character Level:  

Aragorn (level 9)
  Isildur's Judgement (T T C T)

Legolas (level 9)
  Mythril Arrows (arrows upgrade penetrate everything in their path)
  Elven Bow Mastery (increase strength of arrows)

Gimli (level 9)
  Bane of Saruman (S X R2)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Uruk-Hai and orcs break the barricade, storm inside the courtyard and 
start causing trouble (again).  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Part I - Orcs

You must protect a door again - the big one.  A power meter, showing 
the strength of the door, will appear in the upper right-hand corner 
of the screen.  If this depletes, you fail the mission.  Stay close 
to the door.  Gimli will aid you.  

Note:  With Aragorn, you MUST use combo attacks CONSTANTLY and build 
       up your skill meter CONSTANTLY as well in this mission!  If 
       you find that combo attacks are hard to pull off in this level, 
       you could try frantically rotating the right analog stick, as 
       this will make you execute many combo attacks in a row and 
       quickly build up your skill meter for those very handy 
       "perfect" attacks.  

Right away, orcs will attack you and the door.  CONSTANTLY use combo 
attacks to build up your skill meter fast to get “perfect” attacks.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Up on a ledge of the wall, Legolas is surrounded by Uruk-Hai.  He will 
call “Aragorn!” asking for help.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part II - Help Legolas  

Go help Legolas.  His life meter will appear in the upper right-hand 
corner of the screen.  If it depletes (guess what?), you fail the 
mission.  So, be a pal, and give the guy a hand.  

You must leave the door and run across the courtyard and up the steps.  
Run back to the left along the wall.  Don’t worry about any enemies on 
your way - the soldiers will handle them.  Make your way up another 
flight of steps to find Legolas.  Fend off the 3 or so Uruk-Hai.  

Note:  There is a barrel with an experience block around Legolas.  

Now, quickly run back down along the wall.  Be on the lookout for 
bombs that will hit the wall.  Gimli shouts, “Uruk-Hai!”  Don’t worry 
about the enemies on the wall - just try to get back to the door.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Gimli rearranges the faces of a Uruk-Hai, slamming them with his axe.  
But, some get through and start hacking away at the door.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part III - Uruk-Hai  

Quickly dash back down the steps to the door, of you haven’t already.  
Defend the door.  A LOT of Uruk-Hai are bombarding the gates.  Combo 
attacks are A MUST here.  Build up your skill meter again to get 
“Perfect” attacks.  

Soone, someone will shout: “Archers on the wall!”  Now, you must run 
back up the steps and shoot arrows at ALL of the archers along the 
wall.  (Arrows are the only way to hit them here.)  The archers are 
perched along the entirety of the wall - make sure you get them.  Be 
careful, as other enemies will attack you here.  When you knock down 
all of the archers, Gimli will call, “Aragorn!” summoning you back to 
the door.  

When you are finished with the archers, run QUICKLY down to the door.  
Be on the lookout for MANY sword-wielding Uruk-Hai that are at the 
door now.  Again, combo attacks.  

Soon . . . 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Two Cave Trolls climb over the wall and want to play.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part IV - Cave Troll Twins  

The two Cave Trolls will head straight for the barricades.  Work on 
one at a time.  Attack them from behind, and avoid their club swings, 
if you can.  Run away when they attack.  Repeat this process.  But, 
you’ll also have to deal with the Uruk-Hai that are still attacking 
you.  Be on the lookout for “full life” potions that drop here.  They 
are your friends.  Again, build up your skill meter to get “perfect” 
attacks again.  

When you defeat the Cave Trolls . . . 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Well, I won’t spoil the end of the game!  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

********************************************************
***Congrats, you just beat “The Two Towers!”  (Whew!)***
********************************************************

Note:  When you beat Hornburg Courtyard, you can replay ANY of the 
       missions with any character.  

----------
AS LEGOLAS
----------


Part I - Orcs

You must protect a door again - the big one.  A power meter, showing 
the strength of the door, will appear in the upper right-hand corner 
of the screen.  If this depletes, you fail the mission.  Stay close 
to the door.  Gimli will aid you.  

Right away, orcs will attack you and the door.  I don’t recommend 
getting in close combat with Legolas, but if you must, CONSTANTLY use 
combo attacks to build up your skill meter fast to get “perfect” 
attacks.  This might be hard to do, because enemies hit you.  

Note:  For combo attacks, you could try frantically rotating the 
       right analog stick, as this will make you execute many combo 
       attacks in a row and quickly build up your skill meter for 
       those very handy "perfect" attacks.  

I recommend standing away from the door and shooting Mythril arrows at 
the enemies.  This will take most of them out very quickly.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Up on a ledge of the wall, Aragorn is surrounded by Uruk-Hai.  He will 
call “Legolas!” asking for help.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part II - Help Aragorn  

Go help Aragorn.  His life meter will appear in the upper right-hand 
corner of the screen.  If it depletes (guess what?), you fail the 
mission.  So, be a pal, and give the guy a hand.  

You must leave the door and run across the courtyard and up the steps.  
Run back to the left along the wall.  Don’t worry about any enemies on 
your way - the soldiers will handle them.  Make your way up another 
flight of steps to find Aragorn.  Fend off the 3 or so Uruk-Hai.  

Now, quickly run back down along the wall.  Be on the lookout for 
bombs that will hit the wall.  Gimli shouts, “Uruk-Hai!”  Don’t worry 
about the enemies on the wall - just try to get back to the door.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Gimli rearranges the faces of a Uruk-Hai, slamming them with his axe.  
But, some get through and start hacking away at the door.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part III - Uruk-Hai  

Quickly dash back down the steps to the door, of you haven’t already.  
Defend the door.  A LOT of Uruk-Hai are bombarding the gates.  Again, 
stand away from the door and pelt all enemies with arrows.  You can 
even hit them as they come in through the barricade.  

Soone, someone will shout: “Archers on the wall!”  Now, you must run 
back up the steps and shoot arrows at ALL of the archers along the 
wall.  (Arrows are the only way to hit them here.)  The archers are 
perched along the entirety of the wall - make sure you get them.  Be 
careful, as other enemies will attack you here.  When you knock down 
all of the archers, Gimli will yell, summoning you back to the door.  

When you are finished with the archers, run QUICKLY down to the door.  
Be on the lookout for MANY sword-wielding Uruk-Hai that are at the 
door now.  Just shoot arrows once again (Mythril, again, is very 
helpful here, but Dragonfire works well too).  

Note:  Look for dropped health viles and arrow quivers!    

Soon . . . 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Two Cave Trolls climb over the wall and want to play.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part IV - Cave Troll Twins  

The two Cave Trolls will head straight for the barricades.  You must 
hit them with your swords.  Work on one at a time.  Attack them from 
behind, and avoid their club swings, if you can.  Run away when they 
attack.  Repeat this process.  But, you’ll also have to deal with the 
Uruk-Hai that are still attacking you.  Be on the lookout for “full

AS GIMLI
--------


Part I - Orcs

You must protect a door again - the big one.  A power meter, showing 
the strength of the door, will appear in the upper right-hand corner 
of the screen.  If this depletes, you fail the mission.  Stay close 
to the door.  Aragorn will aid you.  

Right away, orcs will attack you and the door.  With Gimli, ust step 
right into the carnage and hack away!  Try to CONSTANTLY use combo 
attacks to build up your skill meter fast to get “perfect” attacks.  
But if you can’t do this, a good attack to use is Mountain Rage (press 
and hold T).

Note:  For combo attacks, you could try frantically rotating the 
       right analog stick, as this will make you execute many combo 
       attacks in a row and quickly build up your skill meter for 
       those very handy "perfect" attacks.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Note:  There is a barrel with an experience block around Legolas.  

Now, quickly run back down along the wall.  Be on the lookout for 
bombs that will hit the wall.  Aragorn shouts, “For Gondor!”  Don’t 
worry about the enemies on the wall - just try to get back to the 
door.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Aragorn is busy hacking up a few Uruk-Hai.  But, some get through and 
start hacking away at the door.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Part III - Uruk-Hai  

Quickly dash back down the steps to the door, of you haven’t already.  
Defend the door.  A LOT of Uruk-Hai are bombarding the gates.  Just 
get over there and hack away with Mountain Rage (press and hold T).  

Soone, someone will shout: “Archers on the wall!”  Now, you must run 
back up the steps and throw axes at ALL of the archers along the 
wall.  (throwing axes are the only way to hit them here.)  The archers

***********************************************************************
************************  VIII. SECRET MISSION  ***********************
***********************************************************************

=======================================================================
--------------------------- TOWER OF ORTHANC --------------------------
=======================================================================

Recommended Level/Upgrades:  

Aragorn (level 10)  
  ALL upgrades

Legolas (level 10)  
  ALL upgrades  

Gimli (level 10)  
  ALL upgrades  

Note:  The Tower of Orthanc is divided into 20 floors.  You must defeat 
       all enemies on a floor to advance to the next one.  This mission 
       functions as a sort of “survival mode” where no potions or 
       projectiles drop.  However, your life DOES recharge somewhat 
       after completing each floor, and you also regain 5 projectiles.  

A Strategy (courtesy of AzureXVIII):  

    In the tower of Orthanc, just let all the enemies (except the cave 
    trolls) come to you, and parry like MAD. Then focus on one enemy 
    and just as he hits you press X then R2 quickly. You will perform 
    your Bane move and everyone around you will watch as the enemy 
    drops to the floor. Continue. Watch out for the two-axe-wielding 
    Orcs, as they sometimes trip you up if you parry them a lot.

A tip for Cave Trolls (courtesy of HowYouDoin1002):  

    You can kill Cave Trolls by charging up your weapon, holding 
    down triangle (T) button until it glows. And as soon as you see it 
    glow, release the button right next to him and it will kill him 
    with one blow.  Careful though, you will take hits if you are 
    slow.  But don't worry, as soon as your character begins to stand 
    up, hold the triangle (T) button and it will glow sooner than if 
    you did it as soon as he stands.  This is very effective when you 
    have more than one Cave Troll.  If you attempt to use this when 
    there is more than one, try to get one seperate from the others 
    so you don't get hammered by one while trying to kill another.  

AND NOW:  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Saruman comes out (with buggy eyes) and cackles, “Your end is near!”  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

----------
AS ARAGORN
----------

Note:  With Aragorn, it is easiest to run around the perimeter of the 
       arena, avoiding enemy attacks.  That way, enemies will chase 
       you, but you can get to a safe distance to turn around and 
       attack them with Wrath of Numenor (press and hold T).  This will 
       set any enemies you hit on fire.  Then, just run around the 
       arena and wait for them to drop!  (There is an exception to this 
       tip, however.  Be on the lookout for the shielded orcs that jump 
       at you.  They can reach you when you are running, so just be 
       sure to parry (S) their attacks.)  


--------------------
Floor 1 - 5 Uruk-Hai  
--------------------

Run a safe distance away, use a few arrows, or Wrath of Numenor (press 
and hold T).  Repeat.  

-------------------------
Floor 2 - 2 Uruk-Hai
          4 Shielded Orcs
-------------------------

When running from the Shielded Orcs, they can jump in and hit you.  Be 
sure to parry (S).  Use fierce (T) attacks or Wrath of Numenor (press 
and hold T).  Do this to break their shields first, then repeat the 
process to defeat them when they have no shield.  

--------------------
Floor 3 - 4 Orcs
          2 Uruk-Hai  
--------------------

Again, run a safe distance, turn around and wait for the enemies to get 
to you.  Then use Wrath of Numenor (press and hold T).  

-------------------------
Floor 4 - 3 Uruk-Hai 
          3 Shielded Orcs  
-------------------------

Use fierce (T) attacks or Wrath of Numenor (press and hold T).  Do 
this to break their shields first, then repeat the process to defeat 
them when they have no shield.  

-------------------------
Floor 5 - 3 Shielded Orcs 
          3 Orcs  
-------------------------

Same as Floor 4.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Saruman comes out and says:  “You have elected the way of pain.”  Then 
he laughs and swings his scepter some more.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------
Floor 6 - 7 Orc Archers  
-----------------------

This is a good level to save some of your life (if you do it right, you 
won’t even get hit).  

Run around the arena.  Arrows will come at you all at once.  Just 
parry (S) the arrows.  Then, run to each orc archer and slash them 
quickly with speed attacks.  

-----------------------
Floor 7 - 4 orc archers  
          2 Uruk-Hai  
          2 orcs  
-----------------------

I recommend running around the arena and focussing on defeating the 
archers first because they can get annoying.  Then, just use Wrath of 
Numenor (press and hold T) for the other enemies.  

-------------------------
Floor 8 - 4 shielded orcs 
          4 archers  
-------------------------

Same strategy as Floor 7, only remember, you’re dealing with shielded 
orcs.  

-------------------------
Floor 9 - 4 orc archers  
          3 shielded orcs  
          2 orcs  
-------------------------

Again, focus on the archers first.  

-----------------------------
Floor 10 - 6 Uruk-Hai  
           2 Uruk-Hai archers  
-----------------------------

This level can be tough if you’re not ready for it.  The Uruk-Hai will 
come for you.  Run to the perimeter of the arena.  If the Uruk-Hai 
surround you, use combo attacks to knock them down.  Don’t worry about 
stabbing them on the ground (unless you have time), just run along the 
edge.  Take out the Uruk-Hai archers first, with fierce (T) attacks.  
Then, with both of the archers gone, run to a safe distance and use 
(guess what?) Wrath of Numenor to hit the remaining Uruk-Hai.  Repeat 
this process until they all go down.  

Note:  Because the Uruk-Hai archers use flaming arrows, some portions 
       of the ground can catch fire.  Be careful.   

------------------------
Floor 11 - 8 orc archers 
------------------------

Another good floor to save life.  Again, run around the arena, tagging 
archers with speed (X) attacks.  Parry their arrows - there will be a 
lot of them.  

Note:  On floor 11, the walls of the tower change color to blue (I 
       know, it doesn’t help with strategy, but it’s just a cool little 
       extra tidbit.)  

------------------------
Floor 12 - 2 orc archers
           4 orcs 
           2 Uruk-Hai
------------------------

Archers first.  Wrath of Numenor.  

------------------------
Floor 13 - 4 Uruk-Hai  
           4 orc archers  
------------------------

(I see a pattern.)  Again, archers first.  Wrath of Numenor from a safe 
distance on remaining Uruk-Hai.  

--------------------------
Floor 14 - 2 orc archers 
           4 Uruk-Hai 
           2 shielded orcs  
--------------------------

See Floor 13.  

------------------------
Floor 15 - 1 Cave Troll
           4 orc archers  
------------------------

Now things are getting interesting.  You’ve made it this far, but will 
Saruman’s minions get you?  

Run around the perimeter of the arena and take out the archers with 
speed (X) attacks first.  Dodge the club of the Cave Troll.  Run in and 
hit him with ONE fierce (T) attack.  Get away.  Repeat.  This 
particular Cave Troll doesn’t throw logs, so it’s all good.  

Note:  You can line up so the Cave Troll continuously walks into the 
       podium in the center of the arena.  That way, he’ll be stuck and 
       won’t be able to get to you.  So, when he takes a swing, you can 
       run up and get a free hit!  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Saruman laughs.  “Your end is near . . .” he warns.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------
Floor 16 - 2 Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai 
           2 orc archers  
------------------------------------

The sword-wielders run FAST.  Wait for them to get off balance and then 
attack.  Then, attack them from behind.  Stab them on the ground, if 
you have to.  (Take ANY opportunity to finish them off if they fall to 
the ground.)  

Now, work on the archers.  

------------------------------------
Floor 17 - 2 Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai  
           2 Uruk-Hai 
           3 orc archers  
------------------------------------

Again, the sword-wielders take priority, here.  Finish them off, and 
the rest of the enemies should be easy.  

------------------------------------
Floor 18 - 1 Cave Troll
           1 Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai 
           3 orc archers
------------------------------------

Save the Cave Troll for last.  He hurls logs at you, so be careful.  
Make sure you don’t run in a straight line, as you will get pegged by 
logs.  

Take care of the sword-wielder first, and get the archers out of the 
way.  Now, it’s just you and the Cave Troll.  You can run up and hit 
him ONCE with a fierce (T) attack between log throws.  But beware of 
his club . . .   

------------------------
Floor 19 - 2 Cave Trolls 
           2 orc archers 
           2 orcs 
------------------------

Work on the archers first, then the orcs.  Last, take on the Cave 
Trolls, preferably one at a time.  One of the Cave Trolls throws 
logs.  The other doesn’t.  

Note:  If you get the Cave Trolls together, they can hit each other.  
       Try and get them to accidentally hit each other.  It will make 
       the floor easier.  

Whenever, one of the Cave Trolls takes a swing his club, and the other 
is far enough away, run up and slap the swinging cave troll with a 
fierce (T) attack.  It doesn’t matter which one takes a swing and 
leaves himself vulnerable to attack.  If you have an opening for an 
attack, use it!  Don’t try to take them at once, as you WILL get 
flattened.  

Another Method:  Dispatch the dark coloured Cave Troll with arrows,
                 and run around the edge, away from the Troll. Then 
                 come in and do ONE fierce attack and press L2 as you 
                 finish it to jump back and out of the Troll's Range. 
                 Continue. If there is more than one Troll, then they 
                 may hit each other if they attack you and you move out 
                 of the way.  (Special Thanks to AzureXVIII for this 
                 strategy.)  

--------------------------
Floor 20 - 3 Cave Trolls
           2 shielded orcs
           2 orc archers
--------------------------

Whew!  You made it this far, but don’t rest just yet!  

Again, take out the archers first, if you can.  Then, the shielded orcs 
(either with fierce attacks or Wrath of Numenor).  Remember to parry 
the shielded orcs’ attacks.  

Next, work on the Cave Trolls.  See if you can get them to clump 
together and accidentally hit each other before you even try to touch 
them.  Do this by running around the perimeter of the arena.  If they 
hit each other, it will save you time and energy.  One Troll will go 
down soon.  

Now, with two of the Cave Trolls left, again, wait for one to swing, 
and just run in, get a quick fierce attack in, and run away.  The 
Trolls might accidentally beat on each other too.  But you’d have 
absolutely no problem with them doing your work for you, would you?  

When all enemies on Floor 20 are gone . . .  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Well, I won’t spoil it for you.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

***You have completed SECRET MISSION:  TOWER OF ORTHANC***  

----------
AS LEGOLAS
----------

Note:  With Legolas, it is easiest to run around the perimeter of the 
       arena, avoiding enemy attacks.  That way, enemies will chase 
       you, but you can get to a safe distance to turn around and 
       attack them using arrows (preferably Mithril Arrows).  This will 
       set your enemies on fire.  Then, just run around the arena and 
       wait for them to drop!  (There is an exception to this tip, 
       however.  Be on the lookout for the shielded orcs that jump
       at you.  They can reach you when you are running, so just be 
       sure to parry (S) their attacks.)  


--------------------
Floor 1 - 5 Uruk-Hai  
--------------------

Run a safe distance away and use a few arrows.  Repeat.  

Note:  On Uruk-Hai, you can use Bane of Saruman to instantly kill an 
       attacking Uruk-Hai.  To do this, when an Uruk-Hai attacks, parry 
       the attack using the square (S) button, then quickly press the  
       X and R1 buttons together.  Use these if you get in a tight 
       spot.  

-------------------------
Floor 2 - 2 Uruk-Hai
          4 Shielded Orcs
-------------------------

When running from the Shielded Orcs, they can jump in and hit you.  
Be sure to parry (S).  Use fierce (T) attacks or Gil-galad’s Rage 
(press and hold T).  Do this to break their shields first, then repeat 
the process to defeat them when they have no shield.  

Note:  If you have Mithril Arrows, you can shoot them into the shields.  
       The shield will catch on fire.  Just wait and the shield will 
       eventually break.  

--------------------
Floor 3 - 4 Orcs
          2 Uruk-Hai  
--------------------

Again, run a safe distance, turn around and wait for the enemies to get 
to you.  Then use your arrows to take them out.  

-------------------------
Floor 4 - 3 Uruk-Hai 
          3 Shielded Orcs  
-------------------------

Again, use fierce (T) attacks or arrows to break the shields.  If you 
get knocked down, use Rising Attack (X while on ground).  This will 
break any shields if the orcs are close enough to you.  Then, either 
use arrows on the Uruk-Hai or shoot arrows at them.  

-------------------------
Floor 5 - 3 Shielded Orcs 
          3 Orcs  
-------------------------

Same as Floor 4.  

Note:  Using the same combination for Bane of Saruman (S + X & R1) will 
       execute Orc Bane, which instantly kills attacking orcs.  

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
CUTSCENE:  

Saruman comes out and says:  “You have elected the way of pain.”  Then 
he laughs and swings his scepter some more.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------
Floor 6 - 7 Orc Archers  
-----------------------

This is a good level to save some of your life (if you do it right, you 
won’t even get hit).  

Run around the arena.  Arrows will come at you all at once.  Just 
parry (S) the arrows.  Then, run to each orc archer and slash them 
quickly with fierce attacks.  

Also, you could get to a good vantage point on the perimeter of the 
arena and launch arrows to kill the archers quickly.  

-----------------------
Floor 7 - 4 orc archers  
          2 Uruk-Hai  
          2 orcs  
-----------------------

I recommend running around the arena and focussing on defeating the 
archers first because they can get annoying.  Then, just shoot arrows 
at the other enemies.  

-------------------------
Floor 8 - 4 shielded orcs 
          4 archers  
-------------------------

Same strategy as Floor 7, only remember, you’re dealing with shielded 
orcs.  

-------------------------
Floor 9 - 4 orc archers  
          3 shielded orcs  
          2 orcs  
-------------------------

Again, focus on the archers first.  

-----------------------------
Floor 10 - 6 Uruk-Hai  
           2 Uruk-Hai archers  
-----------------------------

This level can be tough if you’re not ready for it.  The Uruk-Hai will 
come for you.  Run to the perimeter of the arena.  If the Uruk-Hai 
surround you, use Bane of Saruman (S + X & R1).  Don’t worry about 
taking them all out at once, unless you think you can.  Take out the 
Uruk-Hai archers first, with two fierce (T) attacks.  Then, with both 
of the archers gone, run to a safe distance and use (guess what?) 
arrows to get rid of the rest of the enemies.  Repeat this process 
until they all go down.  

Note:  Because the Uruk-Hai archers use flaming arrows, some portions 
       of the ground can catch fire.  Be careful.   

------------------------
Floor 11 - 8 orc archers 
------------------------

Another good floor to save life.  Again, run around the arena, tagging 
archers with fierce (T) attacks.  Parry their arrows - there will be a 
lot of them.  If you want to, get to a safe point where you can see 
most of the archers and then pick them each off with arrows.  

Note:  On floor 11, the walls of the tower change color to blue (I 
       know, it doesn’t help with strategy, but it’s just a cool little 
       extra tidbit.)  

------------------------
Floor 12 - 2 orc archers
           4 orcs 
           2 Uruk-Hai
------------------------

Archers first.  Arrows.  Or Bane of Saruman (S + X & R1) for Uruk-Hai.    

------------------------
Floor 13 - 4 Uruk-Hai  
           4 orc archers  
------------------------

(I see a pattern.)  Again, archers first.  Use arrows, if you want to, 
to get rid of the archers quickly.  Then, Bane of Saruman (S + X & R1) 
on the Uruk-Hai.  Or, run to a safe distance and use arrows on the 
Uruk-Hai.  

--------------------------
Floor 14 - 2 orc archers 
           4 Uruk-Hai 
           2 shielded orcs  
--------------------------

See Floor 13.  

------------------------
Floor 15 - 1 Cave Troll
           4 orc archers  
------------------------

Now things are getting interesting.  You’ve made it this far, but will 
Saruman’s minions get you?  

Run around the perimeter of the arena and take out the archers with 
fierce (T) attacks or arrows first.  Dodge the club of the Cave Troll.  
Run in and hit him with ONE fierce (T) attack.  (You CAN hit the troll 
with two fierce attacks in a row, but it’s dangerous.)  Get away.  
Repeat.  This particular Cave Troll doesn’t throw logs, so it’s all

Note:  You can line up so the Cave Troll continuously walks into the 
       podium in the center of the arena.  That way, he’ll be stuck and

------------------------------------

The sword-wielders run FAST.  Wait for them to get off balance and then 
attack.  Then, attack them from behind.  Stab them on the ground, if 
you have to.  (Take ANY opportunity to finish them off if they fall to 
the ground.)  

Note:  With Legolas, Mithril arrows ARE effective on the 
       sword-wielders, but they take two arrows to go down).  

Now, work on the archers.  

------------------------------------
Floor 17 - 2 Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai  
           2 Uruk-Hai 
           3 orc archers

--------
AS GIMLI
--------

Note:  With Gimli, even though he is a tank, it is effective to run 
       around the perimeter of the arena, avoiding enemy attacks.  That 
       way, enemies will chase you, but you can get to a safe distance 
       to turn around and attack them with Wrath of Moria (press and 
       hold T).  This will set any enemies you hit on fire.  Then, just 
       run around the arena and wait for them to drop!  (There is an 
       exception to this tip, however.  Be on the lookout for the 
       shielded orcs that jump at you.  They can reach you when you are

quick hits, Gimli will break a shield and kill the enemy.  

--------------------
Floor 3 - 4 Orcs

This is a good level to save some of your life (if you do it right, you

Run around the arena.  Arrows will come at you all at once.  Just 
parry (S) the arrows.  Then, run to each orc archer and slash them

Now things are getting interesting.  You’ve made it this far, but will 
Saruman’s minions get you?  

Run around the perimeter of the arena and take out the archers with 
speed (X) attacks first.  Dodge the club of the Cave Troll.  Run in and

           3 orc archers  
------------------------------------

Again, the sword-wielders take priority, here.  Finish them off, and 
the rest of the enemies should be easy.  Use Wrath of Moria on the 
other enemies once you’ve taken care of the sword-wielders.  

------------------------------------
Floor 18 - 1 Cave Troll
           1 Sword-wielding Uruk-Hai 
           3 orc archers
------------------------------------

Save the Cave Troll for last.  He hurls logs at you, so be careful.  
Make sure you don’t run in a straight line, as you will get pegged 
by logs.  

Take care of the sword-wielder first, and get the archers out of the 
way.  Now, it’s just you and the Cave Troll.  You can run up and hit 
him ONCE with a fierce (T) attack between log throws.  But beware of 
his club . . .   

------------------------
Floor 19 - 2 Cave Trolls 
           2 orc archers 
           2 orcs 
------------------------

Work on the archers first, then the orcs.  Last, take on the Cave 
Trolls, preferably one at a time.  One of the Cave Trolls throws logs.  
The other doesn’t.  

Note:  If you get the Cave Trolls together, they can hit each other.  
       Try and get them to accidentally hit each other.  It will make 
       the floor easier.  

Whenever, one of the Cave Trolls takes a swing his club, and the other 
is far enough away, run up and slap the swinging cave troll with a 
fierce (T) attack.  It doesn’t matter which one takes a swing and 
leaves himself vulnerable to attack.  If you have an opening for an 
attack, use it!  Don’t try to take them at once, as you WILL get 
flattened.  

Another Method:  Dispatch the dark coloured Cave Troll with throwing
                 axes, and run around the edge, away from the Troll.
                 Then come in and do ONE fierce attack and press L2 as 
                 you finish it to jump back and out of the Troll's 
                 Range. Continue. If there is more than one Troll, then 
                 they may hit each other if they attack you and you 
                 move out of the way.  (Special Thanks to AzureXVIII 
                 for this strategy.)  

--------------------------
Floor 20 - 3 Cave Trolls
           2 shielded orcs
           2 orc archers
--------------------------

Whew!  You made it this far, but don’t rest just yet!  

Again, take out the archers first, if you can.  Then, the shielded orcs 
(either with fierce attacks or Wrath of Moria).  Remember to parry the 
shielded orcs’ attacks.  Sometimes, the Cave Trolls will take out the 
other enemies for you!  

Next, work on the Cave Trolls.  See if you can get them to clump 
together and accidentally hit each other before you even try to touch 
them.  Do this by running around the perimeter of the arena.  If they 
hit each other, it will save you time and energy.  One Troll will go 
down soon.  

Note:  If you get too close one of the Cave Trolls, instead of slapping 
       you with his club, he might decide to pick you up and fling you 
       around.  That’s not good.  

Now, with two of the Cave Trolls left, again, wait for one to swing, 
and just run in, get a quick fierce attack in, and run away.  The 
Trolls might accidentally beat on each other too.  But you’d have 
absolutely no problem with them doing your work for you, would you?  

When all enemies on Floor 20 are gone . . .

Well, I won’t spoil it for you.
