1. INTRODUCTION
******************************************************************************

Hello, everyone, and welcome back to Middle-earth!  I'm CyricZ and this is 
my guide for LEGO Hobbit, the video game, in particular the PC version.  In 
this guide, I walk you through the story missions and describe to you how 
to find all the collectibles you may be missing in the game.

While this guide was made with the PC version in mind, it should also work 
just fine for the PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, XBOX One, and Wii U versions as well.

******************************************************************************
2. FAQ
******************************************************************************

Q: What is LEGO The Hobbit?

A: This is a LEGO-styled action game released in 2014 based around JRR 
 Tolkien's The Hobbit book, and the Peter Jackson movies that were made 
 from said book.

Q: What is the ESRB rating of this game?

A: This game is rated E10+, with the added descriptors of Cartoon Violence 
 and Comic Mischief.

Q: Would this game be good for my kids?

A: If they enjoy Lord of the Rings, I'm sure they'd like this.  All violence 
 is done to LEGO bricks, so there's no blood.  Anything that was a little 
 too scary about the movies has been toned down.  As far as positive aspects 
 of the game towards kids, the gameplay is focused on exploration, discovery, 
 and critical thinking.  The co-operative gameplay style and forgiving 
 difficulty are also a plus.

Q: Is this game voiced?

A: Yes, the game features lines from the Hobbit films, delivered as they 
 were in the movies by their original actors.  It also features some original 
 voice acting by non-Hobbit actors on a smaller scale.

Q: How many people can play?  Is there online play?

A: Two, and no.

Q: What's new about this game compared to the recent LEGO games?

A: Much is the same as it was in LEGO Lord of the Rings.  Characters travel 
 through Middle-earth between story missions and will find many side 
 quests as well.  Characters will also still have inventories.  New things 
 added to this game are craft plates (which also appeared in LEGO Movie) 
 and the concept of loot, which you get in addition to studs and is used 
 towards crafting.

Q: Can I save in the middle of a Story Mission?

A: You can.  At certain special points in missions, you'll see what are 
 called Save Statues.  They allow you to stop the mission and quit, then 
 start the game up again in the same spot.

Q: I'm lost!  How do I find where I'm supposed to go?

A: The next story mission is always marked by a faint blue stud trail on 
 the ground.  Follow it to where you need to go.  This can also be used in 
 conjunction with the map to track any other object that's marked.  Select 
 the marker on the map and select "Set Destination" and you'll get a trail 
 of yellow studs to it.

Q: Can I get quickly around Middle-earth?

A: Once you complete the story mission "Out of the Frying Pan", you can 
 go to the map and select Eagle Markers and Gwahir will fly you to that 
 spot.

Q: How can I pull open orange handles?  No one in the game can!

A: There are two ways.  One is via a large character like a troll.  Tom 
 the Troll is probably the easiest to pick up.  The other way is by picking 
 up an item that gives strength, like the Stone-giant Gloves found in 
 "Over Hill and Under Hill".  You can also just make and use a custom 
 Troll character.

Q: How can I get rid of shiny mithril bricks blocking the path?

A: You need some form of explosives.  Items such as the Pine Cone Bomb, 
 Mithril Bomb Blade, and Mithril Firework Bow will all work.

Q: How can I deal with bricks that emit black smoke?  My characters just 
 seize up near them.

A: You need a Morgul weapon.  Characters such as Sauron and the Wytch-king 
 carry these weapons.

Q: How can I change the time of day?

A: Once you complete the story mission "Flies and Spiders", you can use 
 campsites dotted around Middle-earth to change the time.  Certain quests 
 are only available at certain times.

================
3C. Hints/Tips =
================

My first advice is to go through the story before you seriously attempt to 
collect objects.  The game kinda railroads you and cuts you off from 
important characters while going through the story, so just relax and enjoy 
and worry about collecting stuff later.

Smash freakin' everything.  Lay waste to any LEGO objects in the area and 
rack up that stud total.  Use special attacks holding down B to demolish 
clusters of objects quickly.

Keep collecting studs.  Collecting a specified number in each mission will 
give you "Master Burglar" status at the conclusion of it.  Once you hit the 
threshold, you cannot lose it, no matter how low your studs gets afterwards.

Explore everywhere.  Run into walls and behind them to look for any areas 
you might be missing.  Big value studs are hidden in places where you can't 
normally see them.

Look out for visual cues to see how you can progress in a mission.  Look for 
soft glows next to dirt piles where Fili can dig, for example, or floating 
leaves for where elves are expected to jump.

Collect Minikit Chests to assemble a little piece of Middle-earth.  While 
you can't use these, they can be viewed in a special room in Rivendell.  For 
completing a Minikit, you'll get 50,000 studs, except for the last one, 
which gives you 500,000.

There are many things around Middle-earth for you to find, including Mithril 
Bricks, Side Quests, and Blacksmith Designs.  Keep an eye on the map for 
things to look for and don't be discouraged if you can't get to them right 
away.  You'll be able to later.

===========================
3D. Abilities and Weapons =
===========================

Like every other LEGO game, each character will have a specific set of 
skills that they can use throughout the game.  Some of these skills will 
be tied to innate abilites, others to the items they carry.  Here's a 
breakdown of what you can use in this game.

Crawlspace -
 Dwarves and hobbits can crawl through specially marked little tunnels, 
 which connect to other tunnels elsewhere in the area.  Taller characters 
 can't use them.
 Examples: Bilbo, all dwarves

Axe Smash -
 All dwarves are armed with axes that allow them to smash cracked blocks.  
 Similarly, anyone who picks up an axe can do the same.
 Examples: All dwarves

Buddy Moves -
 While controlling a dwarf or hobbit, press B to pair up with another 
 dwarf or hobbit and move together.  Pressing X will allow the two to do 
 a Buddy Attack.  Buddy Attacks can smash larger cracked blocks and can 
 also be used against boss enemies.
 Examples: Bilbo, all dwarves

Hammer Pound -
 A character with a warhammer can use it to push large square items that 
 sit on smooth tiled flooring.
 Examples: Dwalin, Thráin

Flail Grab -
 A character armed with a flail can attach to gold hooks, and either pull 
 on them with B or swing from them with X.  Also, the swinging can be 
 targeted by holding down X.
 Examples: Dori

Mining -
 A character armed with a pickaxe can mine from ore deposits in missions or 
 in Middle-earth.  There's a minigame where you need to hit between the 
 two markers to successfully mine loot from them.  If you hit square in the 
 middle on the small colored section, you'll finish the deposit and get 
 maximum return from it.
 Examples: Bofur

Fishing
 With a fishing pole, a character can fish off marked wooden piers.  A 
 small minigame requires button pressing in order to pull up your prize.  
 An extra stud reward is granted if the buttons are pressed at the right 
 time.
 Examples: Bilbo

Bow and Arrows -
 A character with a bow can, in addition to shooting far off targets, hit 
 circular red and yellow targets to affect the area.
 Examples: Kili, Legolas

Digging -
 A character with a shovel and dig on brown LEGO dirt piles to unearth 
 what's beneath, and they can also plant green seedlings that sit on dirt 
 piles to grow them.
 Examples: Fili, Sam

Firestarter -
 A character with a tinderbox or a similar item can light fires at certain 
 brown panels.  Oftentimes in missions you'll be given a torch that will 
 serve the same purpose.
 Examples: Sam

Dwarf Stack -
 A dwarf with a pole weapon can stand on small green spots, and other 
 small characters can climb up them to reach higher ledges.  Multiple 
 dwarves can be stacked if each has the ability.
 Examples: Óin, Nori, Bifur

Sling -
 A character with a slingshot can fire at diamond-shaped red and yellow 
 targets, either to fill up a bag to weigh down, or to turn a colored 
 wheel to input a code.
 Examples: Ori

Belly Bounce -
 Bombur has the unique ability to lay on picnic blankets.  Another character 
 can then give him food loot items and he will expand, allowing bouncing 
 up to a higher ledge.
 Examples: Bombur

Light -
 Some characters can light up a dark cave once they enter it.  Any wizard 
 will light up a cave with their staff.  Torches and other items can also 
 be used in this manner.
 Examples: Gandalf, Radagast

Wizard's Staff -
 A wizard can shoot magical blasts out of their staff.  These blasts can 
 destroy blue brick objects.
 Examples: Gandalf, Radagast

Climbing -
 Goblins and similar creatures can climb on walls marked with nets by 
 jumping into them.
 Examples: Goblin (Confused)

Wraith Bricks -
 By wearing the Ring, Bilbo can turn invisible and interact with faded 
 "wraith" objects in the area, either by smashing them or assembling them.
 Examples: Bilbo (once he gets the Ring)

Elf Agility -
 Elves have the natural talent for higher jumps than men.  They can also 
 swing from poles in the wall, and they can balance on ropes, allowing them 
 to jump from them.
 Examples: Legolas, Tauriel

Animal Healing -
 Radagast the Brown has the ability to heal animals taken by a dark 
 sickness with the crystal on his staff.  Look for animals with purple and 
 black bubbles coming out of them, then press B near them.
 Examples: Radagast

Strength -
 Large characters can grab big orange handles and pull them apart.
 Examples: Any large character, any character with Stone-giant Gloves

Explosives -
 Certain items cause objects made out of shiny white mithril to break 
 through explosives.
 Examples: Mithril Bomb Blade, Mithril Firework Bow

Morgul -
 Certain evil characters are armed with Morgul weapons that can destroy 
 Morgul bricks: objects that emit a black smoke that repels most characters.

4. STORY WALKTHROUGH
******************************************************************************

Like most LEGO games recently, the game begins right in the first mission, 
so let's get going!

======================================
4A. Greatest Kingdom in Middle-earth =
======================================

Master Burglar at 130,000

Characters: Thorin (Young), Thráin, Armoured Dwarf Guard, Balin (Young), 
 Dori (Young)

---

Walkthrough - 

Erebor! -
 We begin our tale in the throne hall of the Mountain King.  You are in 
 control of young Thorin and an unamed guard Dwarf.  Head down the stairs 
 to find Thorin's father, Thráin.  Smash the statues flanking the closed 
 door to make pieces.  Hold B to assemble these pieces into an unassuming 
 block.  Now, hold Y to access the Character Wheel and switch to Thráin.
 Press X next to the block as Thráin and he'll mash it with his hammer, 
 sending it into the wall.  This will open the door and let you proceed.

 Head down the stairs to the end.  Smash the wheel switches next to the 
 closed door to find a rock.  Pick up the rock with X, then hold X and 
 throw the rock at the statue above.  You'll be able to proceed through 
 the next door.

 You're now in the appraisal room.  The task is to pull on two levers to 
 open the back door.  Hit the block on the left with Thráin, then have 
 each character climb up on either lever to open the door.

 Next is the forge.  Bofur just finished a nice pickaxe and has just left, 
 slamming the door behind him.  You'll need to forge something to follow 
 him.  For this, you'll need to gather some "loot".  Smash everything in 
 this room to pick up diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds.  Also, behind 
 the ruby cart is a crawlspace.  Press B next to it to crawl through.  
 Mash B to turn the crank on the ledge and you can now access the box of 
 gold.  You should now have all you need to go to the anvil and press B.  
 Follow the prompts for the forging mini-game (remember those for later) 
 and you'll make a Gem-Forged Key.  Go over to the lock and press B to 
 open the door.

 You're now in the mine area.  Bifur is here, looking for his flute.  
 Of course, it's pretty obviously on a table nearby, but humor him and 
 grab it, then hand it to him by standing in the glowing ring and pressing 
 B.  He'll now be on your team, along with his pickaxe.  Use it to smash 
 the ore deposits to the left.  To get the most loot out of the ore, hit 
 the first strike on the colored part in the very middle.  You can also just 
 hit between the yellow lines and you'll be fine.  Once you're done with the 
 ore, smash other objects in the room until you have some rope, wood, and 
 stone, then assemble the pieces under the ore to make a Craft Plate.  On 
 these, you'll have to use loot to make Super Builds.  To perform a 
 Build, you'll have to select the next object that it prompts you to 
 select.  If you do it fast, you'll get the most studs.  If you screw it 
 up or take too long, you'll get fewer studs.  You first have to match 
 two pieces, then three, then four.  This will create a mining rig.  Lower 
 yourself on the rig and smash some ore deposits to move the story along.
 
A Fire Drake from the North -
 Oh no!  It's Smaug!  You now have control of young Thorin, Balin, and Dori.  
 First, switch to Dori and press B in front of the fallen pillar to attach 
 his flail to it.  Mash B to pull it apart, then proceed to the right.  
 Next, you'll smash a cracked block, which any of the dwarves can do, then 
 to smash the bigger cracked block, press B near any of the dwarves to 
 buddy up.  Press X with the pair in front of the block to do a Buddy 
 Attack which will smash it.  Next, pull down the wreckage with the flail, 
 then move on down the stairs.  Buddy up again and smash the large 
 cracked block on the ground, then proceed down the stairs to where the 
 amassed dwarf forces are waiting

 Oh, that could have gone better.  Now you need to chase after the king.  
 To open the door, first assemble the pieces for the gold hook so Dori can 
 pull that rock down, then assemble those pieces.  Head over to the obvious 
 warhammer on the left and use it to slam the block into the door.

 In this shiny shiny room, head to the back and flail down the giant gold 
 statue.  Climb it, then smash the two gold boxes to find pieces to finish 
 the bridge on the right.  Cross it, then note the hanging gold hook.  Hold 
 X (or press X) to target the hook and have Dori grab onto it.  Switch 
 characters with Y and use your other character to jump onto Dori, then 
 have each jump off on the far side.  Climb up the ramp and have both 
 characters jump onto the hanging chandelier to pull it and the king down.

Erebor Was Lost -
 Not much here except running.  Watch for studs and minikits as you go, 
 though.

---

New Characters: Thorin (Young), Thráin, Balin (Young), Thrór, 
 Armoured Dwarf Guard
Available for Purchase: Bilbo (Old)

---

Middle-earth Interlude: 

New Characters: Frodo, Sam

Well, bet you didn't expect these guys to make an appearance!  Head right 
up to Bag End to start the next mission.

=========================
4B. An Unexpected Party =
=========================

Master Burglar at 70,000

Characters: Bilbo (Hobbiton), Dwalin, Kili, Fili

---

Walkthrough - 

At Your Service -
 Having thoroughly enjoyed the great Christopher Lee on the narration, we 
 can now pay attention to this party here.  Smash the chest in the back 
 right to find the key to the back door.  Through the door, smash the 
 shelf on the right, then assemble the pieces of the tile floor so Dwalin 
 can smash the hutch to the right.  Head further back and the bell will 
 ring again.

 Balin now joins the squad.  Head to the left and smash open the cracked 
 block on the door to open the way to the dining room on the far left.  
 Smash the back left shelf to find the pieces to finish the Craft Plate 
 so you can build the dining room table.  Oh, there's the door again!

 With Fili and Kili, you can now go back to the pantry.  Your task is to 
 grab three food items and bring them to the table.  First, the sausage 
 is easy if you switch to Kili and shoot the nearby target.  Next, the 
 cheese is on the shelf on the left further back.  Lastly, the wine is 
 on the very back shelf, so smash the cracked block.

That's What Bilbo Baggins Hates! -
 This is just a fun little rhythm game where you match the button when 
 it fills the circle.  You can hit the button at any time after it appears, 
 but you get a bigger stud bonus if you hit it just right.

---

New Characters: Bilbo (Hobbiton), Bilbo, Gandalf
Available for Purchase: Tom Bombadil

---

Middle-earth Interlude:

Bilbo and Gandalf are off on an adventure!  Follow the stud trail to the 
edge of Hobbiton.  Use Gandalf's staff to shoot a magic blast at the blue 
sparkly cart to move it out of the way, then continue through Bywater, 
and then to the north of Bree.  You can't enter the town yet, but keep 
moving along the road to join the company.

======================
4C. Azog the Defiler =
======================

Master Burglar at 25,000

Characters: Bilbo, Óin, Nori, Bifur, Thorin (Young), Dori (Young), 
 Dwalin (Young), Balin (Young)

---

Walkthrough - 

The Tale of Azog -
 Before we jump into the gritty tale of Azog, let's first find an apple 
 for one of our ponies.  Also, Óin is with you for this.  First, go to 
 the little green pad in the back.  Press B when controlling Óin and he'll 
 stand on it to start a Dwarf Stack.  Switch to Bilbo and run into Óin to 
 hop onto his head, then jump off him to the next ledge.  Here you'll find 
 Nori, but you'll also need to get Óin up to this level, so head to the 
 right and start smashing stuff to find pieces for a ladder.  With both 
 dwarves up here, stack both of them together, then have Bilbo hop off the 
 top.

 Smash the rock to the right to open the crawlspace so the other two 
 dwarves can join you, then axe smash the cracked block.  Assemble the 
 ladder and have two characters pick up each end, then head to the left so 
 it can be placed.  Cross the ladder and you'll find Bifur, who can also 
 stack.  Stack all three dwarves so Bilbo can get up to the tree with the 
 apple.  Carry it back down to the pony.

The Battle of Azanulbizar -
 Well, this is a change of pace!  You now have control of Young Thorin, 
 Dori, Balin, and Dwalin.  Smash ten orcs to begin with, then the line 
 of dwarves will part, allowing you to pass to the next area.  In this 
 area, beat up five silver-armored orcs.  Next, an Orc Berserker will come 
 out with a siege tower.  Buddy up and use Buddy Attacks on the Berserker 
 to defeat him.  After that, buddy smash the wall on the siege tower and 
 two orcs with gold armor will pop out.  Beat them, then assemble the 
 gold hook onto the top of the tower.  Use Dori to pull it open, which 
 will release two green-armored orcs with bows, so deal with them.  A second 
 siege tower will come out, so deal with it the same way, only this time 
 there are three of each type of smaller orc.  Once they're all in pieces, 
 head through the gap in the lines to the back-right.

 Now it's time to face Azog himself.  Engage him in a button mashing 
 fight, then he'll hop up to the left ledge.  Smash the broken pillars, 
 then use Dwalin to push the rock towards the back.  Hop up and fight 
 Azog again.  He'll hop to the back now, so go to the right and have Dori 
 pull down the gold hook so he can hop up.  Smash the rocks and assemble 
 another hook so Dori can swing across, then 

---

New Characters: Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, 
 Glóin, Noir, Óin, Ori, Thorin, Dori (Young), Dwalin (Young)
Available for Purchase: Bombur (Young), Thrór (Armoured), Orc Berserker

---

Middle-earth Interlude: 

So you now have access to the entire Dwarven Company.  You can hold Y to 
bring up "Extra Characters" and switch between any of the fifteen members 
of the company.  Head along the trail and down the hill.  Have Dwalin 
knock down the pillar so you can proceed to Weathertop, then head south 
to a carpenter.  You'll engage in a side quest here and will have to 
build a bridge to cross.  You'll need some wood, rope, and stone to do so, 
so I hope you've been collecting a bit at least.  Cross the bridge once 
you're done and you'll start the next mission.

==================
4D. Roast Mutton =
==================

Master Burglar at 50,000

Characters: Bilbo, Ori, Fili, Kili, Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Bombur, Bifur, 
 Bofur, Óin, Dori

---

Walkthrough - 

Official Burglar -
 Note that you're moving slowly for this section.  Head up the path and 
 over the log.  One of the trolls will note something amiss, so shoot an 
 arrow with Kili at the nearby target to distract him.  Head to the right 
 and over the log, then switch to Bilbo and have him fish at the pier to 
 distract the second troll (hit the button prompts as they appear, or 
 wait until the hook line covers the circle for a bonus).  He'll pull up 
 a crab, so grab it and toss it at the trolls' pot.

 Continue back to the corral and smash nearby objects to find pieces for a 
 sling target for Ori.  Switch to him and hit the sling target three times 
 to open the corral door.  You will free one of the ponies, so head back 
 to the left and over the logs, past the now broken barrier.  Switch to 
 Fili so he can dig at the pile of dirt, then take the rock and throw it 
 at the pot.  Now, continue to the back, smash all the objects and assemble 
 the sling target, then switch back to Ori and sling it.

Troll Fight -
 Things just got exciting.  Although you seem to have just Thorin and 
 Kili, you've basically got just about everyone who's in this scene.  
 You can just switch to them on the wheel and they'll hop of the troll 
 they're pounding on.

 Anyway, for the first troll, head to the right and smash up the objects 
 until you uncover pieces for a catapult.  Shoot the target on the 
 catapult to stun the troll, then do a Buddy Attack on him.  You'll 
 immediately engage the second troll in a button mash.  Once you win, 
 you'll stun him for another Buddy Attack.  The last troll will jump 
 back behind the fence, so shoot the target above him when he's under 
 it to drop the nest on him.

Playing For Time -
 You're now controlling Fili and Bombur.  First, smash the table to free 
 Dori.  You'll also grab his flail, so use it on the left hook and pull 
 down the crates.  Head further lift and dig Thorin out of the ground, as 
 well as a crank.  Use the crank on the cage to free Kili and you'll get 
 his bow as well.  Go to the far right of the area and shoot the target 
 on the boxes to free Glóin.  Assemble the pieces to make a craft plate, 
 then use it to make a series of slides to free Óin.  Finally, switch 
 to Gandalf and hold B to use his super attack.

Walkthrough - 

Blades and Borrowed Things -
 The idea in this area is to find the three super great weapons for your 
 main characters.  We'll take them in turn.

 Glamdring - Near the entrance, smash a box to find pieces for a ceiling 
 hook.  Have Dori attach to it, then have another dwarf jump onto him.  
 This will uncover a cracked block, so axe smash it to knock the chest down.  
 Have Gandalf open it.

 Orcrist - Head to the far right and switch to Bombur.  Press B on the 
 picnic blanket and he'll plop down onto it.  Change to another character 
 and press B near Bombur to feed him, then have Dori bounce off his belly 
 to reach the upper ledge.  Climb up the ladder and smash the objects to 
 find pieces of a hook.  Assemble it and pull the stalactite down to 
 uncover another hook.  Swing across to the left and smash the objects 
 in front of the crawlspace.  Have Thorin crawl up and open the chest.

 Sting - Have Gandalf enter the darkened back part of the cave.  He'll 
 use his staff to light the way.  Smash the area to find pieces for a 
 sling target.  Switch to Ori and have him hit the target to drop a bunch 
 of pieces.  Assemble them into stairs, then have Bilbo climb the stairs 
 and open the chest.

Being Hunted -
 Radagast has joined you, as well as several warg scouts.  You cannot 
 defeat the wargs themselves, only chase them off momentarily.  What 
 you need to do is take Radagast to each of the five rabbits in the 
 area and press B to use his magic crystal on them to suck the darkness 
 magic out of them.

 #1 - Right in the middle of the area.
 #2 - The front right of the area, near a stump.
 #3 - In dirt on the left side of the area.  Use Fili to dig it up.
 #4 - In the back left of the area on a ledge.  Go to the back and clear 
  up the tiles, then hammer pound the rock to the left and climb up on it.  
  Chase the warg that's up there around the area, then smack him to make 
  him drop the rabbit.
 #5 - Up a tree in the back right.  Have Dori pull down the gold hook, then 
  assemble the craft plate.  Find the copper, rope, and wood in the area 
  and assemble the platform, then push the rotator switch to raise up 
  the platform and lower the rabbit.

The Hidden Pass -
 Okay, this might be a little weird, but this part is split up.  If you're 
 playing co-op, one of you will be Radagast on the sled, the other will 
 be the rest of the crew.  If not, you'll have the option of switching 
 between the two groups, but you may as well stay on Radagast for the 
 time being.  Ride to the orcs and press X to fight them.  Mash the 
 button prompts to de-warg them, and do so for three of the riders.

 Going back to Gandalf and the boys, blast the hanging blue rock and axe 
 smash the cracked block.  Go up the ramp and buddy smash the cracked 
 wall at the end, then head further right.  Have Kili shoot the two 
 targets to drop a gold hook.  Assemble it onto the rock and pull it 
 down, then hop over to the far side.

 You're now fighting a rider with a rather obvious standard on his 
 back.

Walkthrough - 

High Pass -
 You have access to the entire Company in this mission, but at the 
 moment, you're split into two teams.  The point of this section is to 
 reunite them.  First, on the upper path, head to the right and axe smash 
 the rocks, then smash the objects to find a crank.  Use a dwarf stack 
 beneath the platform and climb up and use the crank to lower a package 
 to the lower team.

 On the lower team, head to the right and use Dori to flail open the 
 package.  Assemble the plank and cross.  Smash up some rocks and assemble 
 an anvil to clear the rocks on the upper path.

 With the upper team, head right and watch out for falling rocks.  Assemble 
 the pieces into a cracked block and smash it.  Switch back.

 Head across the fallen rock and continue to the right.  Buddy smash the 
 back wall and climb up the rock that falls.  Continue all the way to the 
 right and smash all the wooden items to make pieces for a box hanging 
 from a rope.  Switch back.

 Continue on the right with the upper team and use Dwalin to hammer the 
 minecart out of the way. then move forward along the cliff.  Dwarf 
 stack at the green spot and turn the crank at the top to wheel up the 
 package.  Assemble it into a craft plate, which will allow you to make 
 a lightning rod with gems I hope you were collecting on the way here.  
 When it's complete, head to the right.

A Thunder-battle -
 Man, things are just so complicated on this adventure!  Climb up the leg 
 and move to the left.  Smash one of the big rocks to find a smaller rock 
 that you can throw at the green to find pieces for a railing that will 
 let you climb up.  Continue up and to the left.  Hammer pound a minecart 
 out of the way, then axe smash a cracked block.  Continue to the left.
 
 At the ledge, have Dori grab onto the hook and have another person hang 
 from him to pull down the box.  Use it to assemble the ladder, then smash 
 a nearby rock to find a small rock.  Carry it up the ladder and toss it 
 at the greenery to get pieces for railings again.  Climb up, and then 
 move to the right when the giant's arm connects to you.  Keep going right 
 until the giant moves its arm again and smash the cracked block that 
 appears.

 For the last part, simply follow the button prompts.

Middle-earth Interlude: 

Head up the path.  Dwarf stack up the arm of the giant and buddy smash 
when you reach the top.  The arm will crumble away and you can enter the 
cave.

Walkthrough - 

Riddles in the Dark -
 One of the fun things about these adaptations is trying to force ways 
 for two characters to be on screen when the original work says one 
 character is alone.  In this case, you've got a confused Goblin on your 
 side apparently willing to help.

 So smash down the barricade and head to the back.  Uncover the 
 crawlspace on the left, head through and smack the weight to drop the 
 skeleton.  Pick up the skull and throw it at the indicated point on the 
 rocks, then assemble each set of rocks into a ledge.  Climb up and head 
 further back.  Switch to the Goblin and use him to climb up the netted 
 wall, then hop down the back side of that ledge and smash the fence so 
 you can assemble a plank bridge for Bilbo.  Continue further into the 
 back.  Smash everything at the end, grab a skull off the bones and throw 
 it at the hanging box, then assemble everything into a craft plate.  
 Build the catapult, then hop in with one character and have the other 
 hit the catapult to launch him into the barrier, allowing you into the 
 back.

 Now, you're dealing riddles with Gollum.  First, smash everything in the 
 area until you can build a mountain.  Second, assemble the broken pieces 
 into a wall and have the Goblin climb it, then have it smash the objects 
 on the ledge so you can assemble a wind propeller.  Attach the crank and 
 turn it to solve that riddle.  Lastly, take the rock and use it on the 
 left to knock down pieces of a crawlspace.  Crawl through it and smash 
 the bones to make a ladder so the Goblin can climb up.  Have both 
 characters hang from the chains to dump pieces for a craft plate.  
 Assemble it into an hourglass for the last riddle.
 
The Great Goblin -
 Now back to our friends the dwarves and a boss fight with the Great Goblin.  
 For the first part, defeat ten orcs and then switch to Gandalf when he 
 shows up and do his super attack.  For the next part, you'll need to 
 damage the Great Goblin.  Wait for him to get a box and raise it over his 
 head with an obvious target on it.  Shoot it as Kili, then buddy attack 
 the GG.  For the second phase, the box will have a gold hook on it for 
 Dori to pull.  For the last phase, the box will have blue sparkles on it 
 for Gandalf to blast.

Escaping the Goblin Tunnels -
 This next part has you running through paths and switching teams on the 
 fly.  Move to the right and hop across the gaps in the bridge.  At the 
 end, hammer pound the cart, then move further along the bridges.  Blast 
 the blue piece of wood with Gandalf, then use two dwarves to grab the 
 wood and charge through the goblins.  At the end, turn the crank to 
 raise the bridge and run across.

 You're now with a different team.  Go to the right and down the ramp.  
 You'll now see three sling targets with colors on them.  You'll need to 
 set the colors to green-red-blue, the same colors that are on the flags 
 above, then cross the platforms.  Smash the cracked block near the 
 barrels, then move down and use a flail to pull the bridge back down.  
 Continue down the bridge and cut the ropes holding the nearby platform 
 up, then grab the ladder with two dwarves and move it into place.  Cross 
 the ladder, then climb up the next one.

 Back to the first team, head right and grab the torch.  Set the ropes on 
 fire to release the swinging platform.  Jump on and fire arrows at the 
 two targets to lower the barrier, then jump off and continue right.  At 
 the end, pick up a crank and assemble the mechanism, then use both to 
 raise the bridge and move on.

 You're on a third team now.  Head to the right and Dwarf stack Bombur 
 up to the ledge.  Fight off the goblins that grab you and you'll end up 
 underneath a platform.  Smash the barrels on the left to get the other 
 team access to the right, then use the craft plate to make a crank 
 mechanism.  Turn it to turn a platform, then push through the goblins 
 to the right.

 Now back to the first team.  Head right and magic blast the boulder 
 above the goblins, then axe smash the crack to set it rolling.  Run 
 after it and all the way to the end.

 Now, it's time for one final face-off against Double G.  This is pretty 
 simple, though.  Wait out his attacks until he stuns himself, then 
 buddy attack him three times.

Walkthrough - 

A Clifftop Attack -
 For this part, all you need to do is run and collect stuff on the way.

Climb the Trees -
 Go to the back left and axe smash the tree to find gold hook pieces.  
 Use them to pull down the rock on the right to uncover a crawlspace.  
 Crawl up and use Dori to swing from the hook, then get Dwalin to grab 
 onto him and jump across.  Hammer pound the rock to create the way forward 
 and a way for those behind to catch up.

 Smash up rocks in the second area to find a small stone, then throw it 
 at the nearby tree to dislodge pieces for a railing.  Start climbing up 
 the tree.  Once you reach the top, the tree will tip and you'll switch 
 teams.  Use Kili to shoot the targets as you climb, then have Bifur 
 stack at the end so you can reach the top.

 You'll then crash into the last team of Óin and Glóin.  Throw bombs 
 at the wargs to chase them off.  Take one set of four, then another 
 set of four.

...Into the Fire -
 Now to face Azog.  First, press X near his warg to latch on and use 
 button prompts to knock him off.  Once Azog is off his warg, chase after 
 him until you can use button prompts to fight him like you did in the 
 mission prior.

 You need to get the house open.  Head to the right and you'll find that 
 the bees have taken the key.  Go to the right and smash the three hives 
 and they'll fly off.  Smash the flower pot near the side door to get the 
 key moving, then go to the hive on the left side of the house, assemble 
 the hook, then pull the flower pot down with Dori.  Fire a magic bolt 
 at the now blue hive to destroy it.  Head to the right and swing from 
 the branch with Dori, then have another dwarf jump onto him to toss the 
 key onto the roof.

 To get up to the roof, assemble the red parts of the fallen hive into a 
 picnic blanket and have Bombur sit on it.  Feed him, then bounce up to 
 the railing, which will pull down a ladder.  Climb up and walk over to 
 the key, then drop down and use it on the lock.  Quick mission.

Walkthrough - 

Stay on the Path -
 Head to the back and smash objects to find a green pad for Nori and Bifur 
 to stack on.  Send Dwalin to the top and have him hit the rock to dislodge 
 a platform up and to the right.  Head along the trunk and down the path.  
 Continue down and to the right until you reach a barricade.  Shoot Ori's 
 sling to the right two targets to flip them, then cross with Bilbo.  Have 
 him fish off the pier, then light the torch at the fire, then light the 
 barricade.

 Head up and smash the objects around the statue to find wraith pieces.  
 Have Bilbo use the Ring and put them together to put tiles on the floor, 
 then have Dwalin slam the statue to the right.  Have Ori sling the 
 platform on the water to rotate it, then hop onto it and rotate it again 
 so you can hop over to the next platform.  Use the Ring to put together 
 the pieces, then sling this platform to rotate it, allowing you to go 
 right and join the rest of the Company.

It Stings! -
 So things got a little hairy just now, but you've got an advantage in 
 the Ring.  Put it on and stab the first spider.  The next spider has a 
 gold hook on him.  Switch to Dori and tap X to get out, then flail the 
 spider to pull it down, as well as a bridge.  Head across and cut Bofur 
 and Thorin loose, then assemble the gold hook and pull it down off the 
 wall to open a crawlspace.  Crawl through and head to the right, 
 swinging across the gap.  Stab the next two spiders, then cut Ori and 
 Fili loose to lower a spider with a hook.  Attach to it and swing, then 
 have Bilbo jump on as well so both make it to the other side.  Stab the 
 spider as Bilbo, then crawl up the crawlspace and free Kili.

 Oh yay.  The Elves are here.  The objective here is to get up and 
 save Fili, Kili, and Bombur, and you'll need the elves for all three.  
 First, jump up the back at the leafy marker to find Bombur and a spider 
 to deal with.  Second, go to the right, smash stuff to find pieces for a 
 gold hook, then pull it down with Dori.  Climb up with an elf and 
 cross the rope to find another spider and Kili.  Lastly, use Bilbo to 
 smash the wraith statue on the left, then assemble the socket on the 
 tree.  Fire an arrow at the socket, then flip up as an elf to Fili and 
 the last spider.

Walkthrough - 

Escaping the Woodland Realm -
 First thing you need to do is find three more barrels for the remaining 
 dwarves.  Head to the left and smash the table, then assemble it into a 
 craft plate.  Use it to make a weapons rack, then take a bow off it.  
 Now, go to the right and find a switch you can hang from to release a 
 barrel with a target.  Shoot it.

 Next, smash the keg to the left to knock the gold spigot off it.  Toss 
 the spigot at the gold winch in the background to drop the second barel.  
 Lastly, go the dining area in the back and make a mess to uncover a bunch 
 of wraith pieces.  Assemble them as Bilbo, and then grab a nearby torch 
 and light them on fire to release the last barrel.  Roll all three to the 
 other barrels.

The Elven Gate -
 Go to the nearby pier and jump out the barrel.  You're weaponless at the 
 moment, so start punching orcs and one will drop a Goblin Axe for your 
 troubles.  Head up the stairs and beat up all the armored orcs, then a 
 second set of armored orcs.  Lastly, axe smash the cracked block to knock 
 down the archer and get a bow.  Use the bow to shoot the target above the 
 gate itself, which will clear the aisles.  Head to the lever for the gate 
 and have press B to pull it.

The Hunt for Dwarves -
 In this next area, simply wait for orcs to attack, then use the button 
 prompts to defeat them.

 The following area sees you with Bombur in a whirling death barrel.  Head 
 along the path to the blockage, then axe smash it.

 The final area has you take control of the elves and shoot down twenty 
 orcs as you ride downriver.

Walkthrough - 

The Lake-town Armoury -
 You'll start outside.  Go to the left and smash the boxes, assemble the 
 green pad, then stack all the dwarves with Dwalin at the top and head 
 inside.

 You'll need to find five weapons in here.  First, smash the barrows 
 nearby and assemble the rest of the tile floor.  Use Dwalin to knock the 
 large fire pit over to the crank, then turn it to light it up.  Grab the 
 nearby torch, ignite it, then head to the dark area.  Light the torch 
 in that area, then smash the weapons rack to get a sword.

 Next, you need a way to get up to the top.  Go to the right and smash 
 stuff to assemble a craft plate.  Use it to make a catapult, then set a 
 dwarf in the basket and use another dwarf to launch it, giving you a 
 ladder to the upper area.

 From here, you'll need to find the other four weapons.  Here they are in 
 turn:

 Spear: Have two dwarves pull either rope at the back, near the top of the 
  ladder.
 Bow: Buddy Smash the cracked wall, assemble the ladder, climb up and 
  pull the gold hook off the wall with Dori.
 Shield: Go to the right and use Ori to open the door with the sling target.
 Sword: Go the left and push the rotator to turn the windlance, then pull 
  the gold hook to fire it, cross the rope, and use Kili to shoot the 
  switches on either side of the door.

Kili Is Sick! -
 You'll need to chase down the pig with the Athelas.  Head to the right 
 to find three animal pens.  Spoiler alert: the pig is always in the 
 last one you check.  To open the left pen, go to the boat in the foreground 
 and smash up stuff to find pieces for a ladder.  Carry it to the green 
 pad, then climb up and push the rotator.  For the center pen, use Fili 
 to dig up the crank, then place it on the mechanism and use it.  For the 
 right pen, grab a rock from the basket and throw it at both cages of 
 fish on either side of the pen.  Now you must fight the pig!

Defending Esgaroth -
 Now for a proper battle!  Take out eight orcs, then fight off Bolg with 
 button prompts.  Next, climb up to the ledges, cross the ropes and the 
 poles, and start chasing Bolg to the right.  Set arrows in poles and 
 flip across them, sliding down the roof, going further right.  Beat up 
 some more orcs, then fight Bolg again.  He'll escape, leaving ice floes 
 behind, so cross them to the boat and have each elf grab part of the 
 sail so you can chase him.  After landing, fight the remaining orcs, 
 then fight Bolg once more.

Walkthrough - 

The High Fells -
 Head up the stairs and have each wizard grab the green ropes to drop the 
 pieces for the railing.  Climb up and blast the blue rock to reach the 
 first landing.  Blast the blue rock wall, then grab the switch and zap 
 the blue orb in the statue's hand.  You can now climb up the stairs to 
 the left.  Blast the hanging blue rock to clear the rocks from the 
 stairs to the second landing.

 Here, have Radagast heal the bird, then assemble the planks that pop out 
 to get a bridge up.  At the top, blast the door to enter.

Finding the Tombs - 
 Head down the stairs, then at the end, hop onto the railings to the left 
 and climb up to the top one to reveal an orb that will open the door when 
 hit with magic.

 This next area is a bit of a maze.  Head right at the first junction, up 
 at the second junction, then blast the wall, then head left at the 
 next junction to reach the end.

The Nine, Summoned -
 Head to the back and blast the two torches on either side of the slab to 
 remove it.  Continue down the tunnel and heal the bat at the end so you 
 can start up a light sequence.  Hit the lights in order, 1-2-3-4, then 
 hit them again, 4-2-1-3.  The door will open and you can proceed through 
 the tunnel.  At the end, you'll need to light three blue torches.  The 
 middle one is easy enough, but to get the left and right torches, you'll 
 climb up on either side and stand on a button, then fire a blast at the 
 orb that appears.  To get up the right side, you'll have to find pieces 
 for a ladder.  Hit the three torches and the door opens, then head to 
 the back through all the wind.

 Edge along the walls in this room, knocking away blockages and jumping 
 over gaps when you need to.  Blast the tomb at the end to drop down to 
 the next level.  Head out on the edge and go around this side, then at the 
 end, grab the switches on either side to drop a torch, then blast it to 
 open the door.

Walkthrough - 

The Hill of Sorcery -
 Head to the right and blast the rubble blocking the entry.  Your progress 
 forward is blocked by a shadowy doorway with an eye above it.  You'll need 
 to direct a blue laser into it.  Smash up the area and assemble a blue 
 statue, then fire a bolt at it to open the way.

 The next area has three statues to blast to remove the shadows.  First, 
 heal two birds on the ground floor with Radagast to uncover parts for the 
 middle statue.  Second, smash the wood on the right to make a ladder, then 
 climb up and blast open the door for pieces for the second statue.  For 
 the last, blast the blue cage on the left, then bounce off it to reach 
 the upper area where the last statue is, then assemble the rotator and 
 push it to turn the statue around.  Blast all three.

Hidden Evil -
 You'll need to open that gate on the back wall, and for that, you'll need 
 two cranks turned.  For the left one, smash the stone slab to find pieces 
 for a rotator, then use it to reveal stairs.  Climb up and smash the cage 
 to find the crank, then attach it and turn the mechanism.  Now, go to the 
 center of the room and take the axe, then use it to axe smash the block 
 on the right.  Assemble the ledge, then climb up and along the railing in 
 the back to the second crank.  Head through the open gate.

 Wait, no.  We have to fight Azog first.  You should be familiar with these 
 kinds of fights by now.  Focus on button prompts to wear him down.

The Enemy Has Returned -
 For the first part, simply run.  At the end, you'll have to fight a 
 rather familiar looking mass of blackness.  It should be noted that your 
 "B" move is now a shield.  Avoid the "purple" attacks.  When a "blue" 
 attack is prepared, be ready to use your shield to repel it.  Once you 
 do so, assemble the pieces into a statue, then blast it to fire a laser 
 at the enemy.  You'll do this twice more to finish the mission.

Middle-earth Interlude: 

Back to our Company.  Follow the trail through Dale and up to Erebor.  
The trail leads you away from the main door and up a path.  I will say at 
the outset that it is in your interest to smash down the main door of 
Erebor to find a Loot Dispenser.  Here, you can buy any kind of loot you 
want for a price of studs, rather than having to find it in the field.

Anyway, head along the side path to the back side of the mountain.

Walkthrough - 

Finding the Hidden Door -
 Smash up the objects near you to find wraith pieces that Bilbo can 
 assemble a gold hook for Dori to pull.  Climb up the steps, then use 
 Bifur and Nori to stack, then knock the ladder down at the top.  Climb up 
 the ladder as Dwalin and smash the rock on the track to the right, then 
 hop down and assemble the pieces into another stacking pad.  Stack Bifur 
 and Nori, then knock down a rope.  Climb up to the crawlspace, then 
 crawl through and axe smash the cracked block.  Everyone can now climb up 
 to the next major landing.

 Continue to the left from this landing and find a gold hook for Dori to 
 hang from.  Toss another dwarf onto it to pull open a crawlspace.  Head 
 through as Ori and set the sling targets to red-blue-green.  You can now 
 cross the stone pillar to the left.  Smash the cracked block at the end, 
 then hammer smash it to the right.  Climb up to the next level.

The Last Light of Durin's Day -
 Now we need to find the keyhole.  Go all the way to the left and smash 
 some rocks to find pieces for a rotator.  Have the other dwarf stand 
 on the lift, then push the rotator to lift him up.  Now, switch to the 
 upper dwarf and hop across to the right until you reach a tilted platform, 
 then switch to the lower dwarf and grab the switch beneath the platforms 
 to change them.  Continue in this way to the right, and use the crank 
 above the tree to reveal the door.

Walkthrough - 

Thief in the Shadows -
 But forget that stuff, here comes Smaug!  Head to the right and smash up 
 stuff to build a ladder, then climb up and over, then continue to the 
 right.  Watch out for Smaug's gaze or he'll light you up.  At the end, 
 you'll get knocked down to the next level.

 Continue to the right.  Smash the block with Balin's axe, then smash a box 
 to find a flail.  Use it to pull down the statue blocking your path, then 
 move right and you'll slide down again.

 Move to the right and smash another cracked block with your axe, then 
 assemble the pieces so you can climb up the pillar and move right.  At 
 the end, smash a box to find pieces for a hook to pull down.

 On the next level, move right, smash the shield, then grab the bow from 
 the weapons rack and shoot down the target to proceed, then avoid 
 Smaug's gaze and move towards the Arkenstone.

 On the last level, simply move towards the Arkenstone.

Thorin's Plan - 
 First up, Dori and Dwalin need to make a bellows.  Use Dori to pull down 
 the gold hook up the stairs, and Dwalin to hammer pound the rock on the 
 tiles.  Assemble both into a craft plate, and use it to make bellows.

 Next, you'll switch to Nori and Bilbo.  Have Nori stack on the green 
 pad so Bilbo can hop up, then smash your way through to drop a box that 
 Nori can use to make a ladder.  Further up the stairs, smash stuff to find 
 wraith pieces for Bilbo to make another green pad.  Stack Bilbo up to the 
 next level so he can inch around the pillar to the switch.

 Now, Balin and Ori can make a flash-flame.  To do this, first smash up 
 the barrel in back to get pieces to make the code for the sling targets, 
 red-blue-red.  Have Balin grab the ropes near the targets to uncover them 
 so Ori can shoot.  Once you match the code, assemble the table and press 
 B.  Next, you'll have to throw flash-flames at Smaug.  Aim for the upper 
 part of his head and you'll likely hit him even if he moves.

Revenge! -
 Smash up the area to find pieces for a sling target and use Ori to knock 
 down a ladder.  Climb up and use Dori to pull down the hook so you can 
 cross, then have Dori help Bombur pull.  This puts him out of commission, 
 so use Ori now to climb up and smash all the objects to find a crank.  
 Place it on the mechanism to move the hanging container to the right so 
 you can cross.  Have Ori help Balin pull.  Now, have Nori stand on the 
 green pad and have Bilbo climb up.  Knock down a barrel to make pieces 
 for railings so Nori can join Bilbo, then smash the cracked block and 
 have Nori help Dwalin.  Mash the X button to put Thorin's plan into 
 action.

Middle-earth Interlude: 

Congratulations!  You've completed the story thus far!  What's that?  You 
want more?  Well, seems like the final chapter of this story will be DLC.  
Don't rightly know what form it's going to take, but when it happens, I'll 
be here, ready to fill in the blanks.  Until then!

******************************************************************************
5. FREE PLAY RUNTHROUGHS
******************************************************************************

Okay, in this section we go mission by mission and list all fifteen 
objects you can pick up during the Free Play run.  Like in so many past 
LEGO games, how Free Play works is that you select your characters from 
whoever you've unlocked, and then you're given several more from your stable 
so you can access all the secrets.

Also, if you don't get the character you need in the selection that is 
picked for you, you can always hold down Y and access the full menu 
whenever you want.

Anyway, you can select Free Play of any completed mission from anywhere on 
the map.  You don't have to walk up to the mission's banner in the world.  
Just bring up the map, find the banner on it, then select it.

So, with each item, I may note that you need something in particular.  
Here's a list of what they mean, when they're not specific characters:

Free Play - You'll need to do it on Free Play, most likely because you'll 
 have the characters already in your stable, just not access to them in the 
 Story mode, or you'll need to be able to hot switch on the fly.

NOTE: A lot of the following qualifiers will become obsolete once the 
 character types enter your main party.  For instance, "Wizard" won't be 
 mentioned after the first couple of missions because you'll have Gandalf 
 in your party and will be able to use him on Free Play whenever.

Flail - You need Dori's Flail to pull down a gold hook.

Arrows - You'll need Kili or another archer character for arrows shooting.

Sling - You'll need Ori's slingshot to hit a sling target.

Elf - You'll need an elf's agility for high-jumping or for flipping on 
 poles.

Wizard - You'll need a wizard's staff to fire a shot at a blue object.

Light - You'll need light (such as from a wizard's staff) to enter a 
 dark area.

Climb - You'll need a goblin or a simliar creature to climb up a netted 
 wall.  You get one for free after "Goblin-town".

Ring - You need Bilbo to get the One Ring after "Goblin-town", which will 
 allow him to interact with wraith pieces.

Strength - You'll need a character or item with super strength.  Easiest 
 one to get is Tom (Troll) in Bywater.

Explosives - You'll need an explosive item like the Mithril Firework Bow.

Morgul - You'll need a Morgul weapon to destroy black smoky bricks, such 
 as the ones the Wytch-king and Sauron carry.

******************************************************************************
6. MIDDLE-EARTH EXPLORATION
******************************************************************************

Once again, like in LEGO: Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth has a veritable 
hobbit-load of stuff to do out in scenic Middle-earth.

First things first: I make the pre-assumption that you're not doing this 
until you've completed the story, which unlocks Middle-earth Free Play, 
meaning you can switch characters on the fly.  That will also give you the 
majority of the character types you need, although there are still a couple 
of things to account for:
- Explosives: You'll need an item that can blow up mithril objects.  The 
 easiest one to get I feel is the Mithril Fireworks Bow in "Inside 
 Information".
- Super Strength: You'll need a character who is large enough to pull on 
 orange handles OR you need an item to give a normal character such 
 strength.  Tom (Troll) is pretty easy to get in the Bywater area, so go 
 for him.
- Morgul: You'll need a character with a weapon that can break Morgul 
 objects (smoky black).  Sauron's the easiest to get to and is relatively 
 inexpensive compared to others.

Whereas the last game had Map Stones that made quests and items appear, 
now events get added to the map simply through story progression, and it 
all appears on the map at once.

There are several types of markers you're going to see on the map.  Here are 
the markers that are NOT events:

Cave - These are marked with a brown door and a white arrow going into it.  
 Caves are basically doors that separate the main area from small enclosed 
 areas.  While they don't themselves represent events, they might *contain* 
 events, but those events will also be marked on the map.

Banner - These green banners with pictures on them mark Story Missions.  
 You can select these at any time to replay the mission, either in Story 
 or Free Play.

Eagle Marker - These gray stones shaped like an eagle function as fast 
 travel.  After completing "Out of the Frying Pan", you'll have access to 
 these to call the eagles to take you to whichever marker you select.

Campsite - These brown tents show up after "Flies and Spiders" and you can 
 use them to change the time between day and night.  Many events in the 
 game require you to be in one of the two times.  If you look at the map 
 and see a sun marker, that's an event that requires it to be daytime, if 
 you see a moon, that's an event that requires it to be nighttime.

The rest of the markers are all events:

White Quest - These are white question marks.  You will speak to a person 
 in Middle-earth and they will give you a task.  These tasks could be 
 beating up some enemies, finding a friend, building something, dressing 
 up a certain way, bringing them an item, or something unique.  Your 
 reward will be a Mithril Brick.

Red Quest - These are red question marks.  They operate very similarly to 
 White Quests except on two key grounds.  One, the person in question will 
 always ask you for a mithril forged item, and two, the reward is always 
 the ability to purchase a Red Brick.

Character - They will appear on the map as character portraits.  Simply 
 walk up to the character and press B next to them and you'll be given 
 the option to purchase them.  Not all characters are easy, though.  Some 
 are placed at the ends of minor obstacle courses.  Others, bad guys 
 specifically, will require some punching to subdue them.

Blacksmith Design - They appear as white envelopes with a red seal, and 
 there are sixteen of them in Middle-earth, as there are sixteen also in 
 the Story Missions.  Once you collect the design, you can bring it to 
 the Blacksmith in Bree and you'll be able to forge them if you have the 
 proper loot to make the item.

Mithril Brick - The shiny white bricks that appear on the map are bricks 
 that you can get rather simply, whether it's through running a small 
 obstacle course, solving a puzzle, or completing a race.  The point is, 
 you won't have to talk to anyone to get the quest started.

---

Good news is that all quests are "named", so I plan to order White and Red 
Quests alphabetically.  If you're having trouble on a quest, just search 
through the list alphabetically by name to find it.

That said, if you're having trouble getting TO a quest marker I suggest 
you get in the habit of setting it as a "destination" by selecting it 
on the map.  You'll get a stud trail leading you to it taking the land 
into account.  VERY handy.

Lastly, before we get started and just to make sure things are nice and 
confusing, there are some events that won't appear until you complete 
other events, as in you complete one White Quest and a new one will 
appear, sometimes right in the same neighborhood, sometimes clear across 
the other side of the map.  Make sure to take a look at the map again 
after clearing a bunch of quests to see what else has popped up.  I try to 
make note of what the prerequisites are for quests, but some I haven't 
even picked up on.

======================
6A. White Quests A-J =
======================

Just to explain before you go poring through this: I operate under the

=========================================
6E. Mithril Bricks - The Shire and Bree =
=========================================

Unlike the quests, these don't have names attached to them, so the best I 
can do is location-based.  This first area is the entire west up to the 
large black line of a river that splits the Weathertop area from the 
Trollshaws, so in effect this area covers Elven Port, Hobbiton, Bywater, 
Bree, the Barrow-downs, Weathertop, and the High Fells.

Location: West edge of Elven Port
 This is on a plant out on the water.  Go out to the stone pier and hop 
 across the sinking stones to the rope, then drop down onto the brick.

Location: Northeast of Elven Port Eagle Marker, up river
 Get in the boat either in the Port or back in Hobbiton and go through 
 the water cave.  There's a path in the cave bearing north that leads to the 
 brick.

Location: South of Elven Port Eagle Marker
Required: Strength
 Access to this one is actually just outside the Elven Port.  Walk out the 
 main area and pull on the big orange handle on the right.  Climb the hill 
 and use Bombur on the blanket to bounce up.

Location: Due west of the Hobbiton campsite, past the trees.
 Go to the cave furthest west of Hobbiton, south of the brick marker.  Inside 
 are two blue blocks on pillars, one of which has the brick.  Blast the 
 blocks, then use a spade on the dirt piles so you can bounce up to the ropes 
 and get to the brick.

Location: Cave east of the campsite near Elven Port
 Use a tinderbox to remove the growth on the cave.  Inside, time your 
 jumps across the gaps to the brick.

Location: West of Bywater Eagle Marker
Required: Explosives
 Blast the chest with the mithril lock on the little island in the water.

Location: East of Bywater Eagle Marker, north of campfire
 You'll need an Elf to hop on the ropes and reach the brick above.

Location: South end of Bywater, in Old Forest, west of Bombadil
Required: Strength
 This one's behind a large door that needs strength to open.

Location: Northeast of Barrow-downs Eagle Marker
Required: Strength
 Beneath the purple owl is a cave.  Use strength on the door to wrench it 
 open, then use Radagast to heal the animal.

Location: Cave in Barrow-downs
Prerequisite: The Longest Expedition
 Head back to the "golf" cave and you'll need to get three pigs into the 
 pen.  Hit all the sling switches in the area and be sure to use the plant 
 to get up to the higher platforms.

Location: South end of Barrow-downs
 This is on top of the large hill in the center of the Downs.  Use the 
 picnic blanket to feed Bombur to get some pillars up, then go to the green 
 stack pad and stack a dwarf up to the other button to complete the path.  
 Head up the pillars to the brick.

Location: Center of Bree
Time: Night
 This is on top of the center house.  To get there, you need to climb up 
 the wall near the blacksmith, then follow the rope, go through the 
 crawlspace, climb up the ladder, cross the roof, and then the other rope.

Location: Just next to "Azog the Defiler" mission
Required: Strength 
 Pull open the box next to the mission banner.

Location: South of "Azog the Defiler" mission
Required: Explosives
 This may seem complicated, but the idea (which you know if you hit the Hint 
 Stone) is to flip each of the arrows.  The only thing is that it takes some 
 doing to get to some arrows.

Location: At Weathertop
 Enter the cave beneath Weathertop.  Press the button to lower the spears, 
 then quickly run over and hit the second button.  Run to the chest and 
 grab the crank, then use it on the mechanism to extend some ledges.  Climb 
 up to the brick.

Location: Northeast end of Weathertop area
 Go northeast for Weathertop to find a cave with a river in front of it.  
 Pull off the gold hook and hop onto the button to create platforms to get 
 to the cave.  Inside, use a hammer to push the blocks into the proper 
 holes.  The pattern is easy, so when done, climb up the rocks in the corner
 to the surface.

Location: Northwest of High Fells Eagle Marker
Required: Explosives
 Right next to the entrance to the tombs, blast the mithril rock on the 
 wall, then shoot an arrow into the hole behind it.  Flip up to the brick.

==========================================
6F. Mithril Bricks - The Misty Mountains =
==========================================

This section covers the area between the long vertical river that separates 
Weathertop from the Trollshaws, and it ends at the vertical river that 
separates the mountains from the forests.  This covers Trollshaws, 
Caradhras, Moria, Rivendell, and the Elven Forest.  I've also included the 
High Pass in here since it's mountainous, but NOT the Pine Forest.  Had to 
draw that line somewhere, right?

Location: South end of Trollshaws area
 This is roughly in the same area as Little Orc Lost.  Hit the stone button 
 to raise up some pillars and create a race gate.  Start the race as 
 an Elf and hop across the pillars and jump up through the last circle.

Location: Just north of Trollshaws Eagle Marker
 Hit one of the moles, then hit a bunch more within the time limit.

Location: North end of Trollshaws, near High Fells Eagle Marker
 Enter the cave to find five sling targets.  You'll have to uncover a 
 couple of them.  Set them red-green-red-green-blue (as the Hint Stone 
 suggests).

Location: Northeast of Caradhras campsite
 This is in a ruin on the hillside.  Climb up using the flag-marked path, 
 then hop up the branch trampolines to the planks.  Walk around them to 
 reach the brick.

Location: West of Caradhras Eagle Marker
 This race is won via flail.  Go to the south side of the course and 
 climb up the rocks so you can flail into the starting point, then 
 continue to jump and swing to the left.  Once you reach the end, you'll 
 have to go back to the right, then back to the left again, so stay 
 awake.

Location: Southwest of Moria Eagle Marker
Prerequisite: Miner on the Move
 Return to the mine and hop in the minecart for a harder trial.

Location: South of Moria Eagle Marker
 Go to the water in front of the main gate of Moria and hit the target 
 on the wall.  Move onto one of the solid pillars and start shooting at 
 the seven statues in the area.  You can also melee them, but I find it 
 easier to just shoot them repeatedly to get it done quickly.

Location: North end of Elven Forest area
Time: Night
Required: Morgul
 There's a structure in this area with wraith bricks nearby.  Assemble them 
 as Bilbo and turn the crank to open the door, then smash the Morgul chest 
 inside.

Location: A ways west of Elven Forest Eagle Marker
Time: Day
 Go to the picnic blanket and feed Bombur to bounce up to a little obstacle 
 course which leads to a chest holding the brick.

Location: West of Elven Forest Eagle Marker
Time: Night
Required: Morgul
 This is a Morgul chest that you'll need a Morgul Blade to destroy.  
 Use Radagast on the animal inside.

Location: Northeast of Elven Forest Eagle Marker
Time: Day
 This is visible beneath one of the stair bridges to the treehouses.  To 
 get to it, go below it and look for dirt to plant with, then bounce up the 
 plants to the brick.

Location: Far west part of Rivendell, west side of lake
 After entering the main gate, go down to the water level to find a boat.  
 Row it to the west to find a spot to flip up using arrow poles.  Shoot 
 the chest at the top.

Location: North of Rivendell Eagle Marker
 This is a race that requires an Elf.  Hop up the walls to reach the 
 start marker, then press B to begin.  This race will lead you all around 
 Rivendell, including up to the roofs, but the path is pretty obvious.

Location: Northeast of Rivendell Eagle Marker
 First, pull the gold hook off the crawlspace.  Go through and push the 
 button to uncover the left crawlspace.  Go through and hop around the 
 rafters to grab a crank and attach it to the mechanism.  Turning it 
 will raise platforms to go to the center crawlspace, which leads to the 
 brick.

Location: Deep southeast part of Rivendell in mountains
Required: Explosives
 Set this as a target then follow the path (because it's a bit confusing).  
 You'll end up going through a waterfall to a hidden refuge.  You'll need to 
 set three blocks to get up to the brick.  The first is on the ground level 
 and needs to have the mithril rocks blown up.  The second is up the 
 climbing wall on the right.  The third is up a slope in the back and then 
 requires a magic staff to remove the blue rock.  Push all the blocks with 
 a hammer. 

Location: Northeast part of Rivendell, on stone platform
Required: Explosives
 This is in Elrond's home up on the platform.  To get there, go down to 
 the water and Elf-hop onto the ropes until you get up to the top.  Use 
 Explosives on all the mithril statues in the area quickly to get the 
 brick.  The first nine are easy to find.  The tenth is on the roof, so 
 climb up the nearby ladder to get there.

Location: Northeast part of Rivendell, in southern water
 Enter the cave in this area.  You can open the other heads for loot, but 
 what you need for the brick is to pull the gold hook on the right head, 
 then magic blast the blue orb inside.

Location: Northeast of High Pass Eagle Marker
 In the cave next to the Eagle Marker, enter and run the spike gauntlet 
 to reach the brick.

Location: Right on top of "Goblin-town"
 To get to the brick, you need to enter a nearby cave which is on the 
 Stone Giant.  Mark it as a destination to find it.  Inside, use hammer 
 pounds to move the block around until you hit the switch in the center.

==================================
6G. Mithril Bricks - The Forests =
==================================

This section covers the area between the long vertical river that separates 
the mountains and forests, and the west shore of the Long Lake (Esgaroth).  
It contains the Pine Forest, Beorn's Homestead, Mirkwood, Thranduil's 
Kingdom, Radagast's House, and Dol Guldur.

Location: West of Pine Forest Eagle Marker
 Enter the cave and hit seven arrows to point towards the statue.  Some 
 are behind hooks, targets, etc.

Location: Next to Carrock Eagle Marker
 This is a race that will require an Elf.  Run down the hill and across 
 several ropes to the end.

Location: Northwest of Beorn's Homestead
 Slap one of the moles poking their head out and then slap a whole bunch 
 more in the time limit.

Location: South of "Flies and Spiders"
 Use Radagast on the sick mole.

Location: Next to Mirkwood Eagle Marker
 Nearby are several purple mushrooms that lead up.  Bounce up to the 
 brick.

Location: North of Mirkwood Eagle Marker
 There's a sick owl on the path.  Heal it with Radagast.

Location: Further left of "Barrels Out of Bond"
 This is hanging in the middle of space above the main bridge.  Walk up 
 to the bridge northwest and use Dori to flail-swing over to it.

Location: Near left of "Barrels Out of Bond"
 Using an Elf, head into the kingdom and make your way to the jumping 
 walls.  Hop up three sets to the top to get this brick.

Location: Next to Radagast's House Eagle Marker
 Just east of the marker is a cave.  Go inside and participate on the 
 bouncy race to get the Brick.

Location: Southeast of Radagast's House Eagle Marker
Required: Strength
 Enter the cave.  You'll need Strength to pull the two orange handles to 
 clear the path.  Hop across the pillars and swing on the gold hook, then 
 smash the top of the stone with a buddy attack.

Location: Far east of Radagast's House Eagle Marker
 Use a flail to attach to the owls and swing up to the tree where the 
 Brick is.

Location: Under bridge to Dol Guldur fortress
 Beneath the bridge, take an Elf and hop up the marked walls to the 
 brick.

Location: Right on top of "The Necromancer"
Prerequisite: The Ghost of the Dwarf King 
 Return to the cave and you'll have another ghost-guiding course.  This 
 time, the ghost will match your movements vertically, so you'll need to use 
 the pillar in the middle to get around him.

Location: Just east of "The Necromancer"
Required: Morgul
 You need a Morgul weapon to smash eight Morgul objects in the area.  
 You'll have to walk about a bit to find them all.  There's some up 
 stairs, one out on a plank, and another on top of a small structure.

Location: Further east of "The Necromancer"
 Further into the fortress is a wall to climb with a brick at the top.

==========================================
6H. Mithril Bricks - The Eastern Reaches =
==========================================

This section covers the areas east of the western shore of the Long Lake.  
It covers Lake-town, Dale, and Erebor.

Location: South end of Long Lake, directly south of "T" in "ESGAROTH"
Required: Explosives
 Sail the boat to the spot and get off at the dock.  Blast the mithril chest.

Location: South part of Long Lake, directly south of "G" in "ESGAROTH"
 Take the boat west of the brick marker to land (at the stone dock, not 
 the wooden dock) and follow the path to the wooden dock.  Fish off it and 
 take the key you get to the rotator switch so you can adjust the platforms 
 to reach the top.

Location: West part of Lake-town
 There's a small jumping wall that an Elf can use to get to the roofs.  
 Shoot arrows at the bridge to put it in place so you can cross to the 
 planks and ropes to get to the brick.

Location: Southeast part of Lake-town
 Enter the house south of the Eagle Marker.  Press the button inside to 
 lower some of the spears.  Quickly run through the path to the brick.

Location: North part of Lake-town
 Enter the house in the north part.  Hit the Hint Stone for the riddle, 
 then put 100 Fish in the fourth pot.

Location: Southwest of Dale walls
 To get here, you need to start at Erebor and start walking south towards 
 Lake-town.  You'll reach a craft plate to make a bridge.  Not only does 
 this get you a brick, but also a convenient way to get back to Lake-town.

Location: South part of Dale on cave
 Enter the cave and light fires near each of the captives to free them.

Location: Directly south of Dale Eagle Marker
 This is on the rooftops.  To get there, go south and shoot down the 
 wood blocking the sling target.  Fill it up, then climb up and cross 
 to the roof.  Under the rubble is a sick owl, so use Radagast on it.

Location: West of Dale Eagle Marker
 Go to the staircase that leads up to the northwest wall, then find a 
 wall that you can buddy smash.  Once inside, dwarf stack up to the 
 attic, then smash the wooden chest.

Location: East of Dale Eagle Marker
 Enter the door at the east part of Dale.  In this basement, you'll need 
 to avoid the spears and smash the six statues quickly.  I suggest using 
 the Pine Cone Bomb as it destroys them quickly and from long range.

Location: Northeast of Dale Eagle Marker within walls
Required: Explosives
 There's a ladder on the keep on the east side of Dale leading up to the 
 upper keep.  Find a mithril statue and blast it to find a crawlspace behind 
 it.  On the next level, find another statue to the left covering another 
 crawlspace, which leads to the brick.

Location: East of Erebor Eagle Marker
 Use the craft plate near the water to build a boat, then row the boat out 
 to the pier and take the brick.

Location: West of Erebor Eagle Marker
Time: Day
 Use Dori to pull the gold hook on the wall, then climb up to the 
 crawlspace, then jump out to the hanging gold hook to swing into the 
 brick.

Location: Square structure southwest of Erebor Eagle Marker
 This is near the Red Quest "World's Strongest Dwarf".  Use the Ring and 
 a sling to climb this structure.  The brick is at the top.

========================
6I. Blacksmith Designs =
========================

There are sixteen designs to be found in the wilds.  I've organized them 
alphabetically here, as they're all labelled on the map.

Mithril Bandit Gloves
Location: West part of Lake-town
 Enter the house in the west.  First, pull the gold hook off the chest to 
 get a crank for the mechanism on the left.  Step on the button and shoot 
 an arrow at the target, then fire at the sling target.  Then set the 
 colored targets to red and blue, then take the key and open the chest.

Mithril Beanstalk
Location: Northeast of Moria Eagle Marker
Required: Explosives
 Blast the mithril rocks on the wall.

Mithril Candle Staff
Location: South of "The Necromancer" mission
 Use Bilbo to smash the wraith planks blocking the cave, then enter and 
 find three keys.  One's in the upper target.  One's in the tent in the 
 lower left, and one's in the dirt on the right.

Mithril Catchphrase Mallet
Location: Just north of the High Pass Eagle Marker
Required: Explosives
 This is at a camp up some stone steps.  Use Explosives to blast the 
 mithril lock on the chest.

Mithril Construction Hat
Location: A ways north of Radagast's House Eagle Marker, in the mountains
Required: Explosives
 Best way to get to this one is to ride east from Radagast's House, then 
 turn north and follow the road back west.  You'll need to climb up a wall, 
 then you'll hop up some rock ledges to a dirt pile which makes a flower you 
 can use to bounce up.  At the end of the mountain path is a cave with the 
 design inside.  Use Explosives to blow up the mithril rocks, then hammer 
 pound the rock over to the right and use a tinderbox at the top.

Mithril Dance Boots
Location: East part of Rivendell in woods
 Enter the cave near the design with an Elf.  In here, you'll need to pull 
 three switches to unlock the design.  On the right are spots where you 
 need to shoot arrows to flip up.  On the left is a rope course with two 
 of the switches.

Mithril Falcon
Location: South of Erebor Eagle Marker
 Go to the structure and set a dwarf stack.  Jump up and pull the handle 
 to extend ledges, then use a flail to swing around the front side of the 
 structure, then hop up to the roof.  The design is in a box on the top 
 of the roof.

Mithril Horseshoes
Location: Northeast part of Rivendell
 Beneath the stone platform is a cave.  Inside, you'll have to solve the 
 riddle.  First, hit 12, then 4, then 6, then hit the one hiding behind 
 the tree, then the stone on top, then the one behind the bush to the 
 right, then the green stone and you're done!

Mithril Megapult
Location: Northeast of Bywater Eagle Marker
 The obvious door and sling targets mean you have to put the colors in order, 
 but what order?  The Hint Stone nearby mentions a stone lion.  You can 
 follow the path to the lion, which you can sit on to see three owls in 
 order: green-blue-red.  Set the targets for those colors and go inside.
 NOTE: On the PC version, this is kinda bugged, as it won't let you hit 
  the targets with your sling.  I know of no foolproof way to fix this; just 
  keep leaving and returning to the area.  If you see Hint Stones, that's 
  the sign you can do it.  If not, try changing the time of day, the place 
  from which you walk, and even turning down your graphics quality.  
  Hopefully an update will solve this.

Mithril Mushroom Crown
Location: At the end of the road north of Bree
 Enter the cave and you'll find a bunch of crawlspaces.  The trick is to 
 match them up.  Enter the one with blue flowers to reach the key, then 
 enter the one on the back wall with a sloped top to reach the chest with 
 the design locked in it.

Mithril Rhythm Stick
Location: South end of Rivendell in water
Required: Explosives
 From the main gate of Rivendell, go down to the water level to 
 find a boat.  Row to the design marker and blast the chest on the rock.

Mithril Shadow Blade 
Location: A considerable way south of Weathertop
 There's a Hint Stone next to a locked door south of Weathertop.  It 
 suggest to follow yellow arrows and turn away from purple ones.  So, 
 follow the signs.  Go exactly in the direction of yellows, and go the 
 opposite of purples.  At the end is a dirt pile to dig the key up.  
 Inside the cave, shoot arrows to create blocks in the water to cross, then 
 give twenty each of emerald, sapphire, and ruby to the proper statues to 
 open up the rock to find the design.

Mithril Skull Cap
Location: Northeast of the Trollshaws Eagle Marker
 Go east along the road from the Eagle Marker to find a locked cave.  
 Use a wizard to smash the blue stone to find a button underneath, which 
 will start platforms moving above.  Climb up to the top of the cave with an 
 Elf to reach the crank to unlock the cave.  Inside, use a light to reach the 
 end of the cave, and magic-blast each of the blue orbs that pop up.

Mithril Slippers
Location: South of Elven Forest Eagle Marker
Required: Explosives
 First, fish off the pier to get a crank and use it to raise some pillars, 
 then smash the lowest pillar with a hammer to move it, then hop up as an 
 Elf, then use explosives on the mithril chest. 

Mithril Snowapult
Location: South part of Dale
 First, you need to get to the roofs.  Go to the west gate of Dale and 
 you'll find a climbing wall.  At the top, switch to Dori and start 
 hitting red flags.  You need to hit all eight within the time to get the 
 design to appear, and they're all over the rooftops, although not 
 particularly difficult to find.

Mithril Stud Spade
Location: Northwest of Hobbiton Eagle Marker
 This is found in a little shack, but to open it, you'll need a crank.  
 There's a pier in the stream just to the east.  Fish off it as Bilbo 
 to get the crank.

================
6J. Characters =

6K. Bonus Level =
=================

Once you complete the game, you can access the Bonus Level.  Getting there 
is the trickiest part.  From the gate of Erebor, go up the stone path to 
the square tower (where the "World's Strongest Dwarf" is) and climb up 
by assembling a wraith ladder and by hitting sling targets.  You'll cross 
a rope over to a ledge where the banner is.

The actual mission is a snap.  You have five minutes to tromp around a 
miniature Middle-earth as a stone giant, smashing everything and getting 
a million studs.  You'll hit the million long before everything is rubble, 
so just have fun with it.

******************************************************************************

8. SECRETS/UNLOCKABLES
******************************************************************************
=====================
8A. How To Get 100% =
=====================

As is usual, getting 100% in this game requires you get everything: all 
minikits, Red Bricks, characters, Mithril Bricks, items, and Master 
Burglar rankings.

First priority is always the stud multipliers.  Once you can rack up an 
astounding stud count, everything is easy by comparison.  So, to get the 
x2 multiplier, you'll need to do one of two things: progress the story 
up to "Barrels Out of Bound" and get elves for free, or just buy one of the 
elves like Elrond.  Either way, go into "Over Hill and Under Hill" and 
get the Blacksmith Design for the Mithril Flail, forge it, and give it to 
the guy in Hobbiton for "A Flail of a Time".  That will get you Studs x2.

Next step is x4, which you get for completing "Dual Wielding" in the 
High Pass area.  The next multiplier requires you to be on Free Play with 
the story completed, so wait until then, but make it the next priority.

It also might be worth your time to invest in "Attract Studs" in Lake-town 
to make collecting a bit faster.

Once you've got all the multipliers, make your way through the missions.  
The big bonus you get for minikit completion will be really good with all 
the multipliers applied, especially the last one.  At that point, you can 
buy any Red Bricks you want, and any Loot can be picked up at the Loot 
Dispenser in Erebor.  It's all cleanup after that.

===========================
8D. Trophies/Achievements =
===========================

The first sixteen achievements are for completing the missions in order, 
so I won't bother listing those, as they're easy.

Ever "The People's Champion"
- Complete all the quests in Middle-earth

The greed of Dwarves
- Collect all Mithril Bricks

Labouring in the villages of Men
- Collect all Schematics
NOTE: By which they mean Blacksmith Designs.

Doilies and your mother's dishes
- Collect all Treasure Items in levels

Objects of great beauty
- Forge all the Mithril Treasure Items

Unequalled skill of the Dwarves
- Forge all the Perfect Mithril Treasure Items
NOTE: To make perfect items, you need to fill in the inner circle when 
 forging.

The Unassessably Wealth
- Collect 10,000,000,000 studs
NOTE: This is the most difficult one to do.  The best one-time gain is your 
 last minikit, which gives you one million, turned to 3.8 billion if you 
 have all multipliers on.  If you haven't hit the threshold then, your best 
 bet is to go to Inside Information, and the "Revenge!" part.  Go to the left 
 on the ground floor and in the back to find a dwarf statue.  Smash it and 
 it will continuously drop studs without being destroyed.  Use a polearm 
 wielder and hold down B so they spin their weapon and keep racking up 
 studs.  It will take a while, but it's the fastest way.

That's why we need a burglar!
- Obtain all Master Burglar titles

Stone Giant Stomp

To Be Continued...

Bro's before Gold
- Use 50 Buddy-Up attacks
NOTE: Go to the Battle of Azanulbizar in Azog the Defiler and continually 
 beat on orcs with buddy attacks.  It only counts if you make a kill.

Team Building
- Use every Dwarf from Thorin's Company in a Buddy-Up attack
NOTE: Go again to the Battle of Azanulbizar in Free Play.  You need to use 
 each of the thirteen dwarves: Thorin, Balin, Dwalin, Bombur, Bifur, Bofur, 
 Fili, Kili, Óin, Glóin, Ori, Dori, and Nori.  You need to control each 
 dwarf, buddy-up with whoever, and then successfully kill an enemy with the 
 buddy-up attack.

This FAQ was made 100% by me, and is Copyright © 2014 Scott "CyricZ" 
Zdankiewicz.  You may not take it in whole or in part and claim it as your 
own.  You may not alter it in any way, even if you ask me first, and that 
includes putting it in HTML format.  Please don’t post this on your site 
unless you have express consent by me.  I’ve put a lot of time into this.  
Give me some credit.

Currently, the following sites have permission to post my FAQ:

www.gamefaqs.com
www.gamewinners.com
www.ign.com
www.cheatcc.com
www.cheatplanet.com
www.neoseeker.com

I'm not going to allow people with small personal sites to post this FAQ.  
They may post the link on GameFAQs with all the LEGO guides, but, trying to 
keep updates, well, updated, I'll only allow large committed sites that I 
trust.

=======================
9B. E-mail Guidelines =
=======================

If you wish to e-mail me, be sure to follow these guidelines...

- Make ABSOLUTELY sure I haven't already answered your question in the guide.
- Make sure it has something to do with the LEGO Hobbit game.  I don't want 
spam, chain letters, offers for friendship.  Compliment me on the FAQ all you 
want, though.
- Make sure you say LEGO Hobbit at one point in your e-mail.  I have 
more than one LEGO FAQ, and asking a generic question such as "How do I beat 
the last level?" doesn't tell me much.
- Spell correctly and use proper grammar, please.  If I can't understand 
your e-mail, it'll go to the junk pile.

=============
9C. Credits =
=============

CJayC, SBAllen, and all respective webmasters for having this on their sites.

LEGO, for their world of imagination.

JRR Tolkien for his world of fantasy, and Peter Jackson, for making that 
fantasy come to life.

=====================
9D. Version Updates =
=====================

Version 1.0 - 5/15/2014 - Should be largely done.

====================
9E. The Final Word =
====================

So, no word on the next LEGO game.  That said, there is word that this game 
will have DLC in the form of the last movie.  Don't quote me on that; it 
seems to be just a rumor that hasn't been substantiated, but I'll be back 
to update this guide if it comes true.

See you all again!
