C. Tips

  • A good tip is to save right before start each mission- that way you have a save to go back to if you mess up by not doing a bonus objective, or losing a hero.
  • Evil Mission Mirkwood seems to be the hardest for some- a good tip is to build a fortress on the old road adjacent to the spotlights… and to build more than 1 tower in the lights. You should have some nice powers to destroy the bases before you finally build the last tower.
  • Good Mission Celduin is a hard mission for the good campaign- take it slow, and use King Dain’s hero abilities, and you should make it to the docks
  • The final good and evil missions are not as difficult as they may seem
    • On the Dol Guldur assault (good), use the ents to your advantage at taking down structures and towers. Using calvary can get you to the signal fires quickly, and usually capture them before they die. Offensive powers such as earthquake and flood are very devestating, and will make it easier for you to take down Dol Guldur.
    • On the Rivendell assault (evil), the elves will venture outside your base and attack you- the best way to defend is to have a lot of defensive towers (upgraded) and a fully decked out fortress. When the eagles come, the towers will be a good defense. For an offense spam trolls and support them with warriors- upgrade everything to the max before you attack. Use powers against the fellowship when they come from the South-Eastern side of the map and/or fire.

    how do i make a army?

    • avatar Anonymous

      The game only allows you to build an army to your command point limit.

      But to make a large army past your command point limit. build the units you want, then build a catapault(Ent or Troll) and bombard one of the units until only one or two are left, you’ll see that your command points go down for each single unit you kill, repeat this as many times you want, then build a forge to buy the banner carrier upgrade, purchase this upgrade for all units and they will rebiuld one unit at a time. this will crete the ultimate army but will take alot of patience.

      note: this will slow down the game whan multiple units are in sight.
