    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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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...

  • 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.

  • 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.
