Battle Strategies and General tips 8

Osgiliath: Curse of Barad-Dur is a great starter for the Gothmog fight and to add more pain use your captian's ability Morgul Mirror, after a vicious sewer troll battle you go to the Witch King, use fear and slaughter Berethor first.

Battle Strategies and General tips 9

Minas Tirith: You finally experience a surrounding fight from the outside! Focus on using Stun Blades and Thunder Hammer to knock the heroes off the battle queue and win, another troll fight and then you control Easterlings and are on the good side of disturbing sleep, on the Witch King use fear and take berethor first and then constantly cast fear and destroy the rest of the fellowship, even Gandalf can't withstand fear so use it and they are all under your thumb.

Battle Strategies and General tips 10

Pellenor Fields: the Mumakil should have enough HP to survive an onslaught of attacks and when you have the offensive, wipe there AP with sweeping tusks and reduce them to regular melee. They have no chance. The Witch King is easier because any health they chip off in great amount is easily recouped with Devour Flesh plus all of his counters really add up in the long run, finally there is Sauron were opening with Paralysis of Light is a great way to start off and then peck them off one by one with darkest fear and ensure Sauron's reign for ages to come.   

Battle Strategies and General tips 2

Eregion: Eregion mabye toughest area because your orcs are delicate but just hang in there until you get to the Nazgul round which should be on for a solid win.

Battle Strategies and General tips 3

West Moria: The goblins may have a hard time if the fellowship focuses on taking them out but the Watcher in the Water should be in for a solid win after a few blast of Wreaking Spout.

Battle Strategies and General tips 4

East Moria: The troll fights are easy if you take out the light caracters and move up the line with Massive Swing, it cost so little you can use it every turn, then for the Goblins the key to victory in your Shadow Cheiftans Dark Renewal ability, Playing the Balrog is alot of fun if you experiment with your lesser attacks but if you really need to dish out some pain use Pillar of Wrath it is an instant kill on anyone except Gandalf even if they are at full health.

Battle Strategies and General tips 5

East Emnet Gullies: Perhaps the hardest fight of all is the one with Aranel as the guest character because his arrow flurry can heavy damage you group, use power of the pits on your captains and hang in there, same strategy on second fight, in the battle with you as the Dominant Warg use stunning bite and never let them on the battle queue.

Battle Strategies and General tips 6

Plains of Rohan: In the first fight you must keep the cheiftan alive and focus on destroying the fellowship with foul sleep, next on the bridge you should focus on Elegost and should have your archers pick off the rest long after your frontline is gone, with Grima Wormtounge you can destroy them with Black Speech and help from your Uruk-Hai buddies, Sharku since you have no stun attacks just claw them to death and hope.

Battle Strategies and General tips 7

Helms Deep: In the first fight you have unlimited resources to throw at them as long as your ladders stay alive (not to hard being that they are suprisingly hardy) but victory lies in your beserkers, use Stagger Foe to knock the heroes of the battle queue, even the mighty Legolas can be subdued entirely, use the same strategy for the fight with Gimli except you have now a secret weapon to protect, even the mighty Gimli cant stand against your scuicide Uruk-Hai and will fall to three or four blasts at the most, but on a darker note being only two rounds, Aragorn escapes your grasps.     

How to beat the Balrog

Stock up on Elf Medicine before fighting the Balrog. Have Gandalf use it to bring you back to life; you will get more unit points back if Gandalf uses it on you. Also, equip any Fire protection Elf Stones you have. The Balrog has about 70,000 HP.

How to beat the Mumakil

Use Stand Fast to prevent stun from Stomp; Paralyze to prevent Melee; Silence to Stop Spirit Immune to Bind Ranged; so Blind and/or Reduce Ranged Damage from Haradrim Volley (only attack it has remaining). Pierce is also recommended.

How to beat Orc Veterans

In the Minas Tirith and Pelennor Fields levels, your basic Orc Veteran has at least 20,000 HP. You can use Berethor's Orc Bane twice to kill them. If it does not die, just use a plain attack to save your AP.

How to get everlasting health and a good sword

After beating helms deep save first thing in osgiliath and do helms deep evil mode after you will get a sword called sword of the accursed it has biting blade which will restock your heath to full heath!

Easy Leveling Up

First get all characters then go into the Rohan Village that you fight Wormtounge go to the entrance and turn right go until you find a fork in the path and wait there should be an eye of Sauron in the corner. Once in the battle you should be fighting some wild men if not run away and try again. One of the wild men has white hair and a tan coat try to drain all his Spirit Points using Drain Inspiration with Idriel, Drain Spirit for Eadeon and Steal Spirit with Morowen. Once done he won\'t be able to attack so start doing spirit powers that won\'t hurt the enemy. This should help a lot leveling spirit powers. Keep repeating to level up all characters spirit powers as much as they can.

Battle Strategies and General tips 1

Use stun, sleep, and fear attacks on whoever is up next on the attack queue (top right with the character pictures) it could be a life saver, focus attacks on one character and if it is an attack that hits them all, then focus your attacks on the one who has the greatest damage, go for characters in this order, Idrial, Morwen, or Elegost, then Berethor (or if the situation uses fear cast it and take Berethor first being that he is immune to it) or Eaoden, and finally Hadhod or battlegeuest.   

Morwen Ultimate weapon

Use Steal Item from the Witch King at Pelennor Fields to get the Third Age Rohirric Silver Battle Ax (base: x90 +9 per level, +8 Str, -2 Dex, +3 Spd).

Transferring Evil Mode treasure

Any treasure acquired in Evil Mode can be transferred to a regular saved game.

Good sword for Berethor

If you want a very good sword for Berethor (the first character you start with) at the beginning of the game, do the evil mode of Osgiliath and save it on an early game. By doing this, you will get the Sword Of Isildur, which has a 200+ damage rating. At the beginning of the game, you can give at least 2,000 damage points from a normal hit with this weapon.

Achieving high skilled and highly leveled characters

Firstly to obtain most skills 4 ur characters early in the game find an enemy respawn by a save point, i.e. where the eye of sauron pops up continuously up the top left. I did this in eastern moria but find some decent opponents with high hp and armour but relatively low damage. equip your weakest weapons and fire away. once u hav killed the enemy save and u can repeat with ur ap and perhaps if you like hp restored. Secondly to level up very quickly, in eastern moria again u will fight a a goblin drummer. if you use the skills trick earlier than this and use low time cost spells such as cleansing waters on idrial u can achieve water stallion very quickly. use this to kill the 3 goblins summoned by the drummer and then use passive spells such as leadership and healing while u hav free hits on the drummer. he will use drums in the deep and u can repeat at ur leisure using drain inspiration to get back lost ap. i leveled up 11 times when doing this in 1 hour but its definitely time efficient. i went up against the belrog and my berethor did more damage than gandalf with his five hit combo. remember 2 specialize with the vast quantity of level points u will receive. if u don't have water stallion the trick will still work with normal spells it will just take u a little while longer 4 u to get those levels. i found that in some instances using a citadel rage on the veterans and elegosts aimed shot on the chieftain sometimes saved time as u no longer had 2 watch yo ur enemy attacking (BORING!)

Everlasting health

Once your elf healer gains the \"Valor\" move that presets whoever you choose with an instant revival when ever you die, use it at the beginning of each battle on her first, then on anyone else. If you maintain this so that no enemies can truly kill you, you will almost always have victory.

Berethor Armor

Fight and win as the barlog in evil mode in less than two minutes and you will get a cloak with 97 Def for berethor

Restore HP and AP

If you are low on HP or AP, find a save point. Save your game then quit to the main menu. Reload the game you just saved and both your HP and AP will be completely full.

Transferring Evil Mode treasure

Any treasure acquired in Evil Mode can be transferred to a regular saved game.

Better healing

If you use Elf Medicine, try and use it with Idrial. If this is done, it will give full health instead of half.
