INTRODUCTION******************************************************************************Welcome, welcome all my fine friends! I dont know half of you as well asI should like, and I like less than half of you half as much as you deserve!Welcome to my LEGO The Lord of the Rings walkthrough! In this guide, youllfind everything you could imagine to know about this game, includingwalkthroughs of the story, how to find all the hidden collectibles, and infoon the story and the characters.This guide should serve you for the versions of the game for thePlaystation 3, the XBOX 360, the Wii, and the PC.******************************************************************************2. FAQ******************************************************************************Q: What is LEGO The Lord of the Rings?A: This is a LEGO-styled action game released in 2012 based around JRR Tolkiens The Lord of the Rings series, and the Peter Jackson movies that were made of the books as well.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, Im sure theyd like this. All violence is done to LEGO bricks, so theres 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 LOTR films, delivered as they were in the movies by their original actors. It also features some original voice acting by non-LOTR actors on a smaller scale.
Q: How many people can play? Is there online play?A: Two, and no.Q: Whats new about this game compared to the recent LEGO games?A: Like the recent LEGO Batman 2, there is a large open world to explore in the form of Middle-earth. Youll travel between the missions using this open world hub, and it has many things to find in it as well. As for gameplay, characters will now have an inventory that they can use to switch any items theyre currently carrying. For instance, Legolas can switch between his bow and daggers.Q: Can I save in the middle of a Story Mission?A: You can. At certain special points in missions, youll 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: Im lost! How do I find where Im 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 thats marked. Select the marker on the map and select "Set Destination" and youll get a trail to it.Q: Can I get quickly around Middle-earth?A: Yes! Whenever you discover a new Map Stone, you can fast travel to it almost whenever you want to by going to the map and selecting it. Certain story points wont allow this in order to keep parties separated.Q: How can I pull open orange handles? No one in the game can!A: There are two ways. One is via an orc character. Shagrat is a character you get for free after Cirith Ungol. The other way is via the item called "Mithril Boxing Gloves", the design for which is found in Osgiliath.Q: How can I get rid of shiny mithril bricks blocking the path?A: You need some form of explosives. You can either buy the Berserker orc, who shows up in Helms Deep after you complete that mission, or you can forge Mithril Fireworks, the design for which is found in the hub just outside Barad-dûr.Q: How can I change the time of day?A: After completing the Story, pick any Map Stone and select to travel to it. Youll be able to select a time of day as well.******************************************************************************3.

Hints/Tips =================My first advice is to go through the story before you seriously attempt tocollect objects. The game kinda railroads you and cuts you off from
important characters while going through the story, so just relax and enjoyand worry about collecting stuff later.Smash freakin everything. Lay waste to any LEGO objects in the area andrack up that stud total. Use Ground Pounds to demolish clusters of objectsquickly.Keep collecting studs. Collecting a specified number in each mission willgive you "True Adventurer" status at the conclusion of it. Once you hit thethreshold, you cannot lose it, no matter how low your studs gets afterwards.Explore everywhere. Run into walls and behind them to look for any areasyou might be missing. Big value studs are hidden in places where you cantnormally see them.Look out for visual cues to see how you can progress in a mission. Look forsoft glows next to dirt piles where Sam can dig, for example, or floatingleaves for where elves are expected to jump.Collect Minikit Chests to assemble a little piece of Middle-earth. Whileyou cant use these, they can be viewed in a special room in Rivendell. Forcompleting a Minikit, youll 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 MithrilBricks, Side Quests, and Blacksmith Designs. Keep an eye on the map forthings to look for and dont be discouraged if you cant get to them rightaway. Youll be able to later.******************************************************************************4. STORY WALKTHROUGH******************************************************************************==============4A. Prologue ==============="I was there two thousand years ago, when the strength of Men failed." - ElrondTrue Adventurer at 30,000Characters: Elendil, Isildur, Elrond (Second Age)---Walkthrough -The Battle of Dagorlad - Well, this is quite the epic battle, isnt it? Dont worry too much about all the hullabaloo thats going on around you. All the fighting is just to box you into one area so you can fight other guys. Orcs will pop into the area and your objective is to defeat five orcs with banners on their backs. After you defeat those five, another few orcs standard-bearers will show up, but these ones have shields, and you basically have to hammer the Square button to knock their shields away, then beat them down. Once those three are down, Mount Doom will erupt, and a few evil looking spires will pop out of the ground. These are Morgul blocks. Remember them for later. All you need to know for now is to slash them with Narsil, Elendils sword, then take out the orcs.The Dark Lord - Oh man. That guy... is TALL. So, all you really have to do to fight Sauron is avoid his attacks and wait for him to slam and get his mace stuck in the ground. Hack at it with Narsil, and bust it three times.
Climbing the Slopes - First, note the nearby statue. Thats a Save Statue, and allows you to resume this mission from this spot and quit the game if you wish. Head to the right across the rocks. Jump to the rails on the walls to hang from them, and move along them, jumping up to the next ones. Once you climb up, hack through the Morgul blocks with Isildur, then head further to the right. Time your movement past the jets spewing out steam, then continue through the Morgul blocks to the back. Jump up onto the rails and cross to the other side. Once youre safely on the far shore, hack up the Morgul blocks to drop a wooden plank that you can climb. Press Triangle to swap to Elrond. At the top, note the leaf-like icon. That means a high jumper will be used here. Have Elrond hop up to the ledge, then head right and push the rock into the lava, allowing Isildur to cross. Continue further to the right, climbing up the rails, until you reach the large gate. Kill all the orcs here and eventually the doors will open. Once they open, you can head inside.The Cracks of Doom - Not much to do hear but knock down the orcs in your way and head for the edge to the toss the Ring in! Right? RIGHT?---New Characters: Elendil, IsildurAvailable for Purchase: Elrond (Second Age), Gil-galad, Bilbo Baggins---Middle-earth Interlude:New Characters: Frodo, SamWelcome to Middle-earth, dear friends. A huge open-world that you can,mostly, freely explore. If you wish to wander, you can do so, but youwont be able to get too much done. Still, its nice to soak in some Shireculture. I also suggest hitting that glowing statue. Thats a Map Stone,which will illuminate all hidden items in the area. Each new area has one.So, to continue with the story, follow the Guide Studs (faint blue studs)down the trail to Farmer Maggots.=====================4B. The Black Rider ======================"Trust a Brandybuck and a Took!" - SamTrue Adventurer at 16,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Gandalf the Grey---Walkthrough -The Rider - Well, this is a new setup for LEGO games. Youre now in "sneak" mode, where instead of jumping, pressing X will do a roll. Your objective, if that wasnt obvious, is to stay out of sight. The Riders "vision" is represented by light shining through the branches, and youll need to
repeatedly distract it to move forward.Head to the right and smash the first LEGO rock you see. A smaller rockwill pop out of it. Pick up the glowing rock and hold down Square totarget your throw. Focus on the bird to the right and release to toss it.Alternatively, while facing to the right, simply pressing Square willlikely get the job done. The Rider will be distracted and move on,allowing you to continue.At the next stopping point, switch to Sam and note the dirt pile on theground. Hold Circle to have Sam dig up a rock, then toss it at theboulder to roll it. Continue on. Now the Rider is moving back and forth.Time your movement, hiding behind the center tree, and move on.Now youre a small stream, and theres a crawlspace near you. PressCircle to enter it and go up to the branches, then walk out onto them todisturb the bird. Head back down and continue. As you cross the river,youll come across another dirt pile with a plant sticking out of it.Again, with Sam, press Circle next to it to grow the plant. This willblock the Riders sight of you, allowing you to proceed.Orthanc - But enough of that! Its time to see what Gandalf is up to visiting Saruman. Things arent going well for the Grey Pilgrim. Note that at this point you have access to both Gandalf and the Hobbits. If you have a second player, they will be with the Hobbits while the other is with Gandalf. If playing alone, you can still play as the Hobbits, but you wont be able to proceed until you finish dealing with Saruman.Repel Sarumans attack using Square, then, once you can move again, movearound and hop to avoid his attacks. Once Saruman tires, hold Circle whilenear him to lift him up. Toss him into anything to weaken him. Youllhave to do this three times.The Rider (Part 2) - Back to the boys, youll need to smash some of the bushes and rocks nearby to find three pieces of floor tile. You can place these in your inventory, then drop them on the tile floor near the boulder. When all three are placed, you can push the boulder over the edge and distract the Rider again.Further on, youll have to throw an apple twice more. At the tree tothe right, and then the owl who sits on its branches. Grow a plant at theright edge and youll be able to climb the rock behind you and over thebig log.A second water crossing. Head towards the screen (to the foreground) tofind a LEGO jetty. These can be fished at, but you need a pole. Turnsout Merry has one, so switch to him and press Circle near the water tostart fishing. Press the button prompts that come up. You get a bonus ifyou press the button as the string circle touches the button. Youll pullup a crab. Fling it at the far side of the water to light the bridge onfire.On the right-hand shore is another dig pile. Dig it up to find anotherrock. Throw it at the hive of bees. Thatll learn him. Head where theweb used to be, then head right to crawl through the hollow log. Youhave one more distraction to do, and it wont be ready unless you havefinished with Gandalf earlier. Pick up the apple and toss it, thenfollow the sign.The Chase - Theres not much to this part except enjoy the run and try to avoid the riders.
---New Characters: Frodo (Shire), Merry, PippinAvailable for Purchase: Tom Bombadil, Rosie---Middle-earth Interlude:Follow the stud trail into Bree. Note that its nighttime now. Certaincollectibles can only be found at night, and one only at daytime. Iwouldnt worry about that, for now, though. Head east towards Bree andinto town. Head for the Prancing Pony and youll find some fellow juststanding there outside. Talk to him. Seems he wants a Mithril Trowel.This is one of many Side Quests in the game, where youll have to bringa person an item and theyll reward you in return. In this case, not onlyis this guy offering you passage into the inn, but a Red Brick as well.This is the only quest you need to complete as part of the storyHead to the Blacksmith and pick up the Design in front of him, convenientlyenough, for the Mithril Trowel. Head to the left and press Circle toaccess his menu. Pick the Trowel and spend your two Mithril Bricks toget it made, then go back to the man and press Circle to give it to him.You may purchase the Red Brick now if you wish, or just go inside the Inn.NOTE: Not only have you given the Trowel, but you still technically "have"it in your Treasure Trove. Hold down Circle and select the Trove andpick the Trowel and whichever character youre controlling will equip it.Through this, you can have anyone use it, as long as youre in Free Play orexploring Middle-earth.You know have Aragorn leading the group. Feeling mighty, yet? Headnorth out of town, east through the swamp, then up to Weathertop.================4C. Weathertop ================="I dont think he knows about second breakfast, Pip." - Merry"What about elevensies? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesnt he?" - Pippin"I wouldnt count on it." - MerryTrue Adventurer at 46,000Characters: Sam, Pippin, Merry, Frodo, Aragorn---Walkthrough -Hillside - Note that Pippin and Merry have Barrow-blades, and Sam decided he prefers his trusty Frying Pan. We have some hungry Hobbits, so lets make them a meal! First, lets build a fire. Youll need to gather three clumps of LEGO wood. They are found in faintly glowing bushes, like the one near the back next to the tree, the one in the foreground, and one up on a ledge above. To get to that last one, smash the rock above the crawlspace to find the tiles to assemble the push floor so you can push the other rock out of the way.
While youre up on the ledge, may as well shimmy along the rail to the right. Hit the birds nest and youll knock out an egg. Note that its kinda glowing purple. That means its supposed to be combined with something. In this case, Sams Frying Pan. You can trade items by tossing them with Circle if someone else picks up the egg. Now, for two more food items. Dig near the plant to grow a tomato plant, then knock a tomato off and place it on the Frying Pan, too. Lastly, have Merry fish to get a kipper, then put that on the Frying Pan. Once you have all the wood in place, have Sam press Circle next to the fire to light it with his Tinderbox (Man, Sam can do EVERYTHING). Place the whole meal on the fire.Climb to the Top - The food sadly interrupted, we now need to get to the top of the hill. Head left and smash up all the brush to find pieces to make a bridge. Cross it, then have Sam use the plant. Youll get a couple rocks out of the deal. Toss them at the scrub to the left to clear a way to cross. Another plant awaits you at the end. Use it to bounce up to the next ledge. Use the crawlspace there to head to find a pile of sticks. Assemble them, then light them with Sam to clear the way. Now, avoid that nasty-looking bramble patch and head up to the left. Have two characters hang from the two vines. This will drop pieces that you can assemble into a plank to cross the brambles. Head up the slope and chop a bush to make another piles of sticks that Sam can burn, which will clear off the wall so you can climb up the rails. Head down to the right and dig up yet another plant. Hop across it to the right, then head up the stairs in the back.Amon Sul - So, youve got Sam and Frodo against a gaggle of Ringwraiths. Fortunately, their hearts dont seem into it, as theyre just kinda stalking around taking a few potshots. Frodo is invisible in the "twilight world". This means he can interact with pieces that are lit up white. What you need to do is light five fires in the area: 1. In the center of the area. 2. In the back. Smash apart the wagon and assemble the pieces. 3. On the right side of the area. Have Frodo put the pieces together. 4. In the back right, push the statue off the push floor, then have Frodo put the pieces together. 5. On the left side, dig up the plant, then smash the bush and assemble the pieces. Careful, because if you put together a pile of sticks and leave it, its possible that the Ringwraiths will smash them apart. Once all five fires are lit, Aragorn shows up to help, and its now Aragorn and Sam with torches. Youve only got one fire left, but youll need torches to smack the Ringwraiths with fire. Immediately hit the first one with your lit torch. Sam has a second, so build the nearby fire, light up the torch, and hit another wraith. Youll need to find three more torches. There are rocks on the ground. Pick one up, and youll see arrows pointing to where to throw them. The torches are here, so knock one loose, pick it up, light it, and burn a wraith. Repeat until theyre all gone.---New Characters: AragornAvailable for Purchase: Ringwraith, Ringwraith (Twilight)---Middle-earth Interlude:
New Characters: Arwen Evenstar (Ranger)Frodos been stabbed, and needs to get to Rivendell. Take Arwen and crossthe water to the east. Once the cutscene is complete and the Ringwraithsget their bath, head up to Rivendell. After the next cutscene, head downto the pavilion where the Council of Elrond is taking place. The Fellowshipof the Ring will now form. Frodo will get a new weapon in "Sting", as wellas a mithril shirt which will protect him from damage.Head south from Rivendell and note that the path is leading you over water.Switch to Legolas and aim his bow at the target on the rocks, then at thenext two that appear. Hop across the rocks youve now moved into your path,then follow the trail south to...===========================4D. The Pass of Caradhras ============================"It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing." - BoromirTrue Adventurer at 52,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Pippin, Merry, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf the Grey, Boromir---Walkthrough -Cliffside - Youre going to have to deal with snow drifts as you cross the pass. Short characters: Gimli and the Hobbits, cannot cross without being carried by a taller character, or by being tossed. Press Circle to pick up a small character, and then Square to toss them to another tall character. So, you can do either to get Gimli across the first drift. Gimlis special deal is that he can smash cracked blocks, such as the one here. Press Square in front of it, then head through the crawlspace. Jump and press Square to slam the cracked block on the floor, then head back up to join the rest of the Fellowship, who can now make it across easily. Now, switch back to a tall character, pick Gimli up again, and throw him at the cracked block high on the wall. Youre now sufficiently trained in cracking. Good job. Climb up the rails to the left and push the rock into your path so everyone can climb up. Now, head right through another snow drift. Have Gimli bust up the block, go through the crawlspace, and smash the next block to remove this snow drift as well. Continue to the right, smashing more cracked blocks to clear the way. As you continue, youll hit upon some targets. Use Legolas to shoot them down so you can proceed across the rail. You now have a campsite here, and youll have to get wood into the fire pit. The three crates in this area have the wood you need. Have Sam light it up, which will melt the ice around you, allowing you to assemble a ballista. Hop in with Triangle and press Square to fire it at the fare end. Cross the rope with Legolas, then fire arrows back to the left so you can stick your arrows in the holes. These create poles that let you swing across, so just flip over to the left, then shoot the target near the winch to move a rope so everyone can climb up. Grab Gimli and toss him at the cracked block, then head over the next
drift with Gimli so he can go up the crawlspace and smash some more. This will allow everyone to cross, including Sam, who can assemble the sticks and set fire to them to remove the ice. Head to the right past the rockfall. Toss Gimli again to the other side of the gap. Another snow drift. This time, bring Sam across and have him dig up the crawlspace, then have Gimli go through and smash again. While this removes the drift behind you, you still need a way to move forward. Bring Sam down to the lower level and have him dig up the pieces of a plank. Walk across it, head up the ledges and to another campsite. Smash it up to find three more pieces of wood, stack, and light them. Then, dig up the plant you uncovered. Everyone should be able to cross now. Almost done! Have Legolas shoot the targets to the right, then assemble the cracked block, throw Gimli at it, and continue on down the path.Westgate of Moria - Well, that didnt work so well. Time to try the Moria route. Youll need to open the door first. Youll need three characters to do so: Gimli: Go to the right, smash through the cracked block, and crawl through. Smash the tower to drop it so you can climb up, then head left and smash the minecart to get pieces for a push panel. Tap Circle repeatedly next to it to push the tree around, then head further left and smash the cracked block. Assemble the pieces of the door. Legolas: Head to the left and shoot an arrow at the hole. Hop up to the ledges and flip across. Continue up the rocks and to the right, flipping across another pole. At the end, push the rock off the ledge and assemble the pieces. Sam: Dig up the area in front of the door. Three pieces of wood again. They are in two minecarts in the area, and in the small wooden dock. Smash, collect, place, and light them.Watcher in the Water - Someone doesnt want you disturbing the water. Your first objective is to chop up some tentacles. When one lunges and gets stuck, slash it up. Do this for four tentacles, then the Watchers main body will appear. First, fling Gimli at the beast, then shoot it in the face. Do this once more to free Frodo.---New Characters: Gandalf the Grey, Gimli, Legolas, BoromirAvailable for Purchase: Elrond (Third Age), Gloin---Middle-earth Interlude:While one cant walk everywhere, it seems one CAN simply walk into Moria,so do so.========================4E. The Mines of Moria ========================="I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow!" - Gandalf, to the BalrogTrue Adventurer at 70,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Pippin, Merry, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf the Grey, Boromir
---Walkthrough -Balins Tomb - You need to get Pippin out of the well. First, smash the boxes on either side of the well and assemble the pieces. Next, go to the right, shoot the target, then have Sam burn down the wood in the area to get a key to open the chest. Take the cog in there and place it next to the mechanism. Lastly, go to the left and smash the cracked block, take the crank, and place it. Turn the crank.Drums in the Deep - Youll need to block the door in readiness to receive the orc horde. First, assemble the two spear parts on the sides. Next, have Legolas shoot the targets on either side holding the chains up. Have two characters grab the chains together to lower the bar. Unfortunately, they will not hold, so defeat any and all orcs that come through the doors.Cave Troll - After fighting several orcs, this guy will show up. Now, assemble the little brown platform near you. These are meant to lure the Troll so it strikes that specific spot. Stand on it and wait for him to roar, which means hes going for that spot. Move out of the way and hell bonk himself. Now, switch to Legolas and head up to either side. Smash a rock in order to uncover another platform for the Troll, then bait him with it. Hell get his chain stuck, so hop out onto it and shoot him in the face. Do the same thing for the other side of the room. Now, youve got a Hobbit on the Troll hacking away. Once you bang on him enough, hell be stunned. Switch to Legolas and shoot him. Now, the rubble you made earlier can be assembled into crawlspaces. Take the Hobbit to either side of the room and go up the crawlspace, stand in the glowing circle, then press Circle to jump back on the Troll and bang on him again. Youll shoot him with another arrow. Do the same for the other side of the room and youll be done.Halls of Durin - This first part is simple. While Gandalf holds off the majority of the orcs, you need to take out the stragglers that get in. Take out three groups of them. Once he removes his shield, head to the left to find a door. To get it open, everyone needs to work together. Pippin now carries the bucket he got from the tomb, so fill it up at the nearby water pool and dump it on the fire. Have Gandalf use his magic to pick up the purple cog and place it on the wall. Have Gimli smash the cracked block and assemble the pieces, then push the mechanism into the wall. Lastly, the crank can be found beneath the barrel in the left corner. Place it and turn it, then head through the door.Bridge of Khazad-dûm - Run down the stairs. After a short walk, the bridge will break, splitting up the party. First, toss Gimli to the left onto the cracked block. This will unearth a crawlspace. Have Sam enter it, then cross over to the right pillar and burn it down. This will compress the pillars, allowing Legolas to cross to the left and shoot down the targets, allowing the party to proceed.The Balrog - This area is split, like back in "The Black Rider". Gandalfs portion needs to be finished first, and he isnt letting the Balrog get away without a fight, so hold down X to dive down to the demon and hammer on Square to
slash it. Press Circle when the prompt comes up to stab him. Youll need to do this three times, but the Balrog will start breathing fire at you on the subsequent tries, so youll have to hop left and right to avoid his breath. Once the Balrog is out of the picture, were back to the rest of the party. Head up the stairs and have Legolas shoot the target, and then the arrow into the hole so he can flip across it. Have Gimli smash the cracked block and escape.---Available for Purchase: Moria Orc---Middle-earth Interlude:Head down the path to Lothlórien. Frodo will now have the Phial of Galadriel,which allows him to light up dark places, as well as an Elven Cloak, whichallows him to become invisible. Sam will now have the Elven Rope, andLegolas will get the Bow of the Galadhrim, which isnt much better than hisregular bow, but still, kinda nice.So, tap on Square to push yourself down the river. Youll start the nextmission when you reach the end.==============4F. Amon Hen ==============="Sam, Im going to Mordor alone!" - Frodo"Of course you are! And Im coming with you!" - SamTrue Adventurer at 45,000Characters: Frodo, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, Pippin, Merry---Walkthrough -Hillside - We have another party split here. You have Frodo going solo with the Ring on as he tries to avoid Boromir, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli trying to catch up. Lets focus on Frodo first. The idea here is similar to "The Black Rider". You have to distract Boromir so he runs off so you can proceed. He cant see you, but if you run into the piles of leaves hes standing in, hell hear you. So, grab the nearby rock, head up the hill, and toss it at the targeted spot. Continue up the path and head into the crawlspace. From here, push the pillar off the edge, then assemble the pieces. Climb the stairs and punch a nearby rock to get a small rock to throw at the big stone hand. Assemble the pieces and walk above Boromir. Punch the objects on the pillars to knock them down in succession, then continue until you see an obviously LEGO tree. Smash it and the objects nearby and assemble the catapult. Punch it to fling the rock, then continue further up the path. Grab the rock and toss it above Boromir to move him further. Next, punch a rock to get a small rock, and toss it back to the left to the obvious glowing white parts. Assemble them, climb the stairs, and push the pillar off the edge. This next one is the last one. Head into the crawlspace, punch a rock, grab the small rock and toss it
at the arch above Boromir. This will allow you clearance to run up the slope to the top, ending Frodos portion. Now, lets deal with Aragorn and co. A tree has fallen in your way out of the landing. Youll need a torch, and you can find one in the oars on the ground. Pick it up, light it at the fire, then set it down near the tree to burn it out of your way. Have Legolas go up the path, jump up to the vine, and shoot down the target so you can assemble a springboard so the other two can jump up the ledge. Further ahead is a cracked block for Gimli. In the next area, youll have to move some pillars to advance. Throw Gimli at the cracked block, have Legolas shoot an arrow into the hole, then hop up to the top and push the pillar off the edge. Smash the cracked block near the tile floor, then assemble the other pillar and arrange them so you have steps up. In the next area, youll need to ascend some more. Smash all the cracked blocks and assemble all the pieces. Legolas will have to shoot another arrow into a hole to flip up, then assemble a small pillar and push it off so the rest can join you. Now its time for Aragorn to shine. Pick up Sting on the ground. Note the green haze thats coming off it. That means that Aragorn can use it to track with his super-ranger skills. Youll see green footprints on the ground. Follow them to the nearby bush. Youll know youre getting close when Aragorn starts crawling. The tracking ends when he starts digging at the ground.Uruk-hai Attack - Sending Frodo away, the Terrific Trio engages the Uruk-hai. Your objective is to take down the ones hanging up in high places, and you can do that by either shooting them or smashing the pillars supporting them. Once youve killed your share, more will come in, bursting through the log to the south. Head south and engage more uruks. Smash down the pillars and shoot the ones that you cant smash down. Once youve cleared the area, youll be able to continue to the east. Take down more uruks. Make sure you toss Gimli at the cracked block so you can run up the ramp and engage the remaining uruks.Departure of Boromir - The fight is now against Lurtz, the captain of this troop. Youll have Boromir, Merry, and Pippin to fight against him with. Unfortunately, that leaves you with no ranged combat, so youll have to send a Hobbit up the crawlspace to swat Lurtz to take off one heart. For the next heart, just smash the rocks in the way of the crawlspace and hit him again. For the last heart, youll need to go to the right, assemble the pieces into a springboard, then launch a Hobbit up to Lurtz. Now its Aragorn and Boromir vs. Lurtz. This part is simple. Avoid Lurtzs attacks, watch for when he throws his shield, and smack him when he goes to retrieve it. After a few hearts, hell just fight you straight, so take out the last of his hearts to finish. If he grabs you, switch characters and have the other hit him.---Available for Purchase: Uruk-hai, Lurtz, Galadriel, Celeborn---Middle-earth Interlude:
Frodo and Sam are now moving on alone. Head up the path ahead.===================4G. Taming Gollum ===================="We swears to serve the master of the Precious. We will swear on... on... the Precious!" - GollumTrue Adventurer at 90,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Gandalf the Grey---Walkthrough -Battle of the Peak - Another party split, and this time Im going to separate them. This is Gandalfs portion where he gives the Balrog the business. Head up the slope and smash the ice around the colored blocks. Youll want to assemble these blocks using Gandalfs magic into stairs, or just stack a couple and keep going. Head further up to the tower, then build and smash your way up the steps to the apex. To defeat the Balrog, avoid his attacks and wait for lightning to begin striking. Stand under the lightnings focus and press Circle to focus it on the Balrog. Youll need to hit him three times. First on his wings, then on his chest. That will smite his ruin on the mountainside for sure.Circular Path - Now to something slightly less epic. Gollum takes the fish out of the nearby basket and runs off. Youll need to fill that basket with six fish in order to proceed. This is done as follows: 1. Directly in front of you. 2. Is dislodged once Gandalf defeats the Balrog. 3. Head to the right, stand under the glowing line and press Circle so Sam uses his Elven Rope to pull himself up. Smash the scrub, assemble the ladder, and climb up to reach this fish. 4. Head further right. Note the really dark cavern. Walk in with Frodo and hell pull out his phial. You can have Sam follow and dig up the fish inside. 5. Head further right. Have Sam plant near the tile floor, then push the pillar to the other end so you can climb up the plant and hop across. Now, if the fish werent enough, you have to assemble a fire using three pieces of wood. One is behind the rocks on the left. Another is in the scrub at the foreground, and the last is beneath the scrub to the right. Light the fire and climb up to the fish. 6. Keep going right. Smash a pile of rocks and scrub to find a dig pile, which will have pieces of a rope hook beneath. Assemble them, then climb up to the next ledge. Have Sam plant to create a flower so Frodo can join you on the ledge, then have Frodo go through the crawlspace and into the dark cavern to get the last fish. With that done, keep going right and push the rock off the edge to find that youre back at the beginning. Throw all your fish into the basket to create a new passage to the back.Gollum - Gollum is still not quite ready to play ball, yet. The idea is to give fish to him to occupy him, allowing Sam to use his rope on Gollum, and for Frodo to smack him to knock off a heart. That was the easy one. Now youll need to find more fish, and the only way to do that is by fishing, but you have no pole.
So, lets make a pole. First, head into the dark cave on the back wall to find a fishing line. Have Sam dig at the nearby dig pile to find a gold hook for his rope. Attach it to the wall, then pull down the rock to find a fishing hook. Combine the two, then go up the small path on the left and have Sam rope himself up to the scrub at the ledge. Smash it to find the pole. Combine all three, then fish at the dock. Note that this Fishing Pole will now go into your Treasure Trove, meaning you can pull it out later in Middle-earth or during Free Play at any time, with any person. Anyway, once you get your fish, throw it at Gollum again, then do it one more time.---Middle-earth Interlude:Okay, now you might notice you have another party in the upper-right corner.Yes, thats Aragorn and co., and you can switch to them whenever you wantand do their story missions, or you can continue on with Frodo and Sam.For the purpose of this guide, and because this is how things are orderedin the game, were going stay with Frodo and follow Gollum down into...======================4H. The Dead Marshes ======================="All dead... all rotten. Elves and men and orcses. A great battle, long ago. The Dead Marshes... yes, that is their name." - GollumTrue Adventurer at 65,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Faramir, Madril---Walkthrough -Marsh - Get ready to be annoyed because for some reason, Gollum will not shut up about following him. Gollum will hop through the water, leaving a brown trail behind him. This is the safe part of the bog to walk through, so follow him. In his second move, Gollum will move through water, and fire will spring up behind him. Youll need to put out this fire. Have Sam dig up the pile to find a Wooden Bucket, which you will save as a Treasure. Fill it with the blue water in the nearby pool and throw it on the fire to continue. For the next fire, head left and dig up the plant, then climb up and light the tree on fire so it fills the pool to the left. Fill it, douse the fire, and continue. For the third fire, go to the right and step on the bones to lift up another set of planks to the right. Fill, then douse. For fire #4, go north to the island with a button on it. Stand on it to keep the water filled, then have the other character use the bucket on it. For fire #5, use the rope at a hook to the northwest, then cross, enter the ribcage, and use the rope inside to raise up the bones. Cross the bones to reach the next pool of water. For fire #6 (and this is the last one), head to the hollowed out tree in the back, enter the dark part of it with Frodo, and smash it to find pieces for a hook that Sam can pull down to release the water into the pool.Wraiths with Wings - Now we have a sneak and peek section. Youll have to hide when Gollum
tells you to, so have Sam hop into the stump, and have Frodo select his Elven Cloak. Wait for the Nazgûl to pass you, and then move on when Gollum says to. Youll do this about four times. The fifth time, they mix it up a bit. You have to get inside the dark stump as Frodo so Sam can join you in there. The next area requires sneaking, which means no jumping. Use Sams rope on the obvious hook hanging overhead and head up the little slope so you drop onto the seesaw that lets Frodo head further right and smash up the tree so both characters can proceed. At the next stopover, burn the tree, then hide as normal, then move on. In the last area, use Sams rope to reveal pieces for a bridge, cross, then dig up the plant at the end, hop up and escape.The Wilds - Suddenly, youre in control of Faramir, and its time to dispose of some oliphaunts, or mumakil, as the Haradrim call them. Grab onto the hanging rope of either mumakil and climb up to the carriage at the top. Pick up the rope and use it to climb to the very top, where you can knock out the driver and scare the beast off. Do the same with the other mumakil.---New Characters: Faramir, MadrilAvailable for Purchase: Gondor Ranger, Easterling---Middle-earth Interlude:You now have Faramir on your team, and hell be taking you to Osgiliath.Theres just one problem. Theres a big red haze around Osgiliath. ItsSaurons gaze, and you cannot enter while his gaze is upon any area. Thisis the games way of getting you to finish both paths before moving on.This means we need to switch to the other team.So, with Aragorns team, head to the marker to begin the next mission.===================4I. Track Hobbits ===================="Theyre taking the Hobbits to Isengard!" - LegolasTrue Adventurer at 50,000Characters: Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Merry, Pippin---Walkthrough -Uruk Pyre - Begin by firing at the targets on the pyre, then assemble the shields into stairs and have Gimli slam the block. Youll now have to track the belt to find what happened to Merry and Pippin. Youll also find a second tracking item, which leads to a rock. Assemble the rope hook on the rock, then go left and use Legolas to bring down the target and the rope, which you can use on the rock to get a new tracking item. Keep following multiple tracking items to continue into Fangorn Forest.Fangorn Forest - Now we get to see what happened to Merry and Pippin. Head to the right. Smash up the rocks and go down the slope, then have both characters grab
the log further to the right to pull it down. Assemble the pieces, climb up, head to the right, and fight more orcs until some jump down and clear away the crawlspace. Crawl up, then clear away the brush between the two big LEGO trees, and assemble it into rails. Climb up the rails.Treebeard - Now you have the massive power of Treebeard on your side, and you can literally walk all over the orcs in this area. Head to the right and back. Use Circle to pick up a boulder and Square to throw it at the back wall to knock it down so you can continue. Pick Merry up and carry him across the water. Keep moving until a flaming log blocks your path. Put Merry down, then switch to him so he can head up the crawlspace and pull on the vine to release water onto the fire. Continue up the path to the rear to finish.---Available for Purchase: Grishnákh, Radagast the Brown---Middle-earth Interlude:You have control of Aragorn again. Ride to Edoras.=================4J. Warg Attack =================="Bring your pretty face to my axe!" - Gimli, to a wargTrue Adventurer at 34,000Characters: Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Gandalf the White---Walkthrough -Hall of the King - You need to draw Saruman from Théoden. Beat up all the guards in the area, then blast Grima with Gandalfs staff. Hold Circle in front of Théoden to remove the gray hearts from him. Grima will push you away, so beat up more guards and assemble a cage. The idea is to now hit Grima again so he starts running around and is eventually trapped in the cage. Then, youre safe to focus on Théoden some more. Do that twice more to free the King.The Riddermark - There are two ways to take out Warg Riders. Either you have to be on a mount and attack them, or if youre on the ground, youll latch onto their sides and drag them off. Either way, take out all the Wargs that come at you.---New Characters: Gandalf the WhiteAvailable for Purchase: King Théoden (Cursed), Éowyn, Háma, Gamling, Grima Wormtongue---Middle-earth Interlude:
And now walk to Helms Deep in the southwest.=================4K. Helms Deep =================="The Horn of Helm Hammerhand will sound in the deep, one last time!" - ThéodenTrue Adventurer at 44,000Characters: Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, King Théoden (Armor)---Walkthrough -The Deeping Wall - The battle hasnt even started and already were stuck down at the bottom of the wall. First, have Legolas shoot the target on the left, then place the cogs on the wall. Smash the cracked block, pick up the crank, and attach it to the mechanism so you can turn it. Hop up the boxes and stairs, smash the cracked block near the top, and climb the rest of the way up.The First Advance - You need to repel ladders that hit the wall. Some ladders require Legolas to shoot the orc at the top. Some require Gimli to smash a cracked block. Others can just be slashed at. Take out three ladders, then four will come up. Have Gimli go to the far right and go through the crawlspace and push out a box to take down the far right ladder. Next is five ladders, taken out the same way.The Wall Breached - Smash the cracked block to your left and assemble the pieces, then hop up with Legolas and smash the spear rack so you can assemble a hole for an arrow. Flip up to the left, push the rock off, then hop up and continue to the left. Smash the cracked block to remove the wall so you can move on to the keep.The Hornburg - In case you were wondering, yes, that was Peter Jackson throwing his Academy Award at the orcs (he was in the same place in the movie). Anyway, throw Gimli to the left to break the ram. Take out the orcs in the area, then assemble a timber for the gate. At this point, youll switch to Legolas. Have him shoot down the ladders on the left, then smash up the big ladder when it comes up. Assemble the pieces into a tile floor, then push the box down to the bottom. Assemble the pieces and hop onto the rope to climb up.The Dawn - FORTH ÉORLINGAS!!---New Characters: King Théoden (Armor)Available for Purchase: Haldir, Lothlórien Elf, Berserker, Éomer---Middle-earth Interlude:Now that Rohan is settled, Saurons gaze now rests on Isengard, allowingFrodos company to head to Osgiliath.
===============4L. Osgiliath ================"The Shire must truly be a great realm, Master Gamgee, where gardeners are held in high honor." - FaramirTrue Adventurer at 85,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Faramir, Gollum, Merry, Pippin---Walkthrough -Battle of Osgiliath - We have another split-up here. This time, Frodo, Sam, and Gollum are in the far part of the area, while Faramir is trapped in the near part, and the two have to help each other move forward. Have Frodo head up the crawlspace, then switch to Faramir. Fire an arrow at the distant target (youll be doing a lot of that, so get used to it), then move to the right. Switch to Frodo and hop across the pillar. Drop down and have Sam pull down the rope hook. Switch back to Faramir and have him use the pieces that just appeared to finish the tile floor so he can arrange the pillars and climb up so he can shoot the target to open the gate. Have Frodo move inside the gate, then have Faramir shoot the *other* target to open the far right gate so they all can get through. Now, youll note an orc in the tower. He has a sword that youll need to cut Gollums bonds. Go into the dark spot behind you with Frodo and smash the objects so you can build a crawlspace to climb up. Once the tower is ruined, rope the hook above you and bounce up. Switch back to Faramir. Take out the orcs, including the one shooting at you from above, then assemble the ladder, climb, and shoot the target in the tower. Switch to Sam, assemble the ladder, climb up and take the sword. Hop down and press Circle next to Gollum. You now have full control of the little bugger, and can climb up the LEGO wall marked with fish bones. Turn the crank at the top of the wall to open the gate for the Hobbitses, then head down the stairs to the right. Switch back to Faramir and head down to the right. Climb the stairs in the back and shoot the two targets flanking the statue. Assemble the pieces and push the statue to the left, the fire at the orcs flinging barrels Donkey Kong-style. Now, Gollum can safely climb up the wall to the top and push the statue back down to the left. Have Sam clear out the rubble and plant a flower to bounce up to the upper area, where he can burn away the wood so they can continue. Whoa, Nazgûl! Youll have to use Faramir to repel the flying beast so the other crew can proceed. Switch back to him and head to the right, smashing the wood so you can get a clear shot. Once you fire on it, have Sam go down the stairs and dig up the gears for the mechanism. You still need the crank though. Fortunately, Gollum can fish without a pole, so smash the rocks in front of the jetty and have him pull up a crank. Head on through. Switch back to Faramir so he can head right. Orcs will burst through the wall, giving him a clear shot again. Fire, then head to the right, assembling the pieces for a ladder, then climbing up. Head to the right with Frodo, smash the pillars, and assemble them into stairs. Climb up for the last Nazgûl sighting. Fire at him with Faramir.Battle of Isengard - Now we have two Ents versus Isengard. If that sounds like fun to you, then start wrecking the place. Head to the right and eventually youll
come to a gap that youll need to knock a tower over to create a bridge. Continue until you hit a wall of fire. Grab the nearby water tower and toss it at the fire, then continue back towards the dam. Throw rocks at the towers near the dam so you can climb up, then pull on the supports to release it.---New Characters: GollumAvailable for Purchase: Gondor Soldier, Saruman the White---Middle-earth Interlude:You now have a choice to head further on with Frodos or Aragorns group.For the sake of this guide, well move on with Frodo. Have Gollum climbup the nearby LEGO wall.=======================4M. The Secret Stairs ========================"Its the only way. Go in, or go back." - Gollum"I cannot go back." - FrodoTrue Adventurer at 88,000Characters: Frodo, Sam, Gollum---Walkthrough -Minas Morgul - Youll need to keep an eye on Frodo here, because he sometimes gets drawn out to Minas Morgul. Controlling him will keep that from happening. Anyway, to the left of the statues flanking the road to Minas Morgul is a dark cave. Send Frodo in and have Sam follow so he can dig up the spot and assemble the pieces underneath. Push the statue to reveal a hook for the rope and pull it down. Assemble the next pieces and burn them. The pieces you have now can be used to put together some of the stairs. Thats one part. We need another part of the stairs. Head to the left in the foreground to find a wall that Gollum can crawl up. Smash the boulder of the edge so Sam can get up, dig up the pile, assemble the pieces and use his rope to pull down the plants. Cross the gap with Frodo, enter the dark cave to find tiles for the push floor. Push the rock off the edge and assemble the pieces into the rest of the stairs, then head on up.The Stairs - Climb up and head to the right, jumping over the gaps and using the rails to shimmy over. Climb up the stairs some more. In this next area, enter the darkness with Frodo to reveal the wall for Gollum to climb. At the top, Gollum can push off the rock onto the lower tile floor. Smash the objects in the area to find a dig spot, where youll find the rest of the pieces of the floor, then push the rock to the right so you can hop up the next set of stairs. At the top, enter the dark cave to the right and smash open the box to find a rock. Throw it to the left to uncover a hook, then rope the rocks down so you can cross using the rails, then continue up. At the top, have Gollum climb up and smash the webbings on the wall. He can then assemble
a lever and jump onto it to drop the rock, clearing the way. Head up the crawlspace with Sam and dig up the plant. You can now reach the top.The Tunnel - Its just Frodo and Gollum for the moment, and Frodo automatically has his light out. Have him lead the way into the cave, because there are a bunch of little spiders that only his light can repel. Continue deep into the cave until you have to smash down some debris. After that is a LEGO wall, but first have Frodo get close to remove the spiders. Once Gollum climbs, have him push the box off the edge so Frodo can enter a crawlspace. Head up it, then continue with Frodo in the lead. Cut down any webs in your way and push forward. Next, youll need to smash a bunch of bones at the end of the passage so you can assemble rails to climb up. Smash the rocks and bones in the area. Assemble a little hanging basket, then throw the small rocks into it. Once it breaks the web, youre free to continue.The Chase - Run!---Available for Purchase: Mordor Orc---Middle-earth Interlude:Lets check in with Aragorn, shall we? Ride to Edoras, and then toDunharrow, southeast of Edoras.===========================4N. The Paths of the Dead ============================"That line was broken!" - The King of the Dead*grabbing his neck* "It has been remade." - AragornTrue Adventurer at 90,000Characters: Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas---Walkthrough -City of the Dead - Aragorn is now armed with Andúril, the Flame of the West, which allows him to slice up Morgul blocks. Now, be careful to watch the mist in this area. In areas where it flows towards a circular center, walking into it will trap you and youll have to hammer on a button to get out. Annoying. Also annoying are spots where the mist rises up, because ghosts will pop out of those and youll have to rely on Aragorn to beat them. So, head straight into the cave, avoiding those traps I warned you about. The first important room youll reach has Morgul blocks in it. Hack them all down and assemble a ramp to move on. Continue until you reach an open cavern. This area requires you to knock down the structure in the back. Head to the left and bust the cracked block, then send Gimli through the crawlspace
and have Legolas jump up to join him. Shoot the hole to make a pole, then flip up and push the box down so Gimli can construct a ladder and climb up. Make your way to the back by moving along the rail so you avoid the mist, then have Gimli go to the back right and slam on the cracked block to clear the way. The next important thing is further down the passage. Two targets for Legolas to shoot. This clears the way to the next open cavern. Go to the left and have Gimli smash the crack, then assemble the rail and have Legolas jump up. Put an arrow in the hole and flip across to the right, then push the box off the edge. Drop down and have Aragorn smash the Morgul blocks. Continue on and have Gimli smash the crack at the end. This is the last open cavern. Go to the right hand side and slash the Morgul block beneath the statue so you can move it. Send all three characters up the ladder. Cross the rope with Legolas, then use Aragorn to toss Gimli across to him. Gimli can now slam the crack up here and assemble the crawlspace so he can head to the left side. Push the spinner on the other side, then head through the gate.King of the Dead - First, smash all four cracks. Assemble the bricks and make sure Aragorn is taking out the ghosts. Hop onto your structure and hit the King as he swoops down. Once you hit him three times, hell break your strcuture, so build a new one and hit him three more times. Lastly, build four different structures and make sure you hop to the right one the King swoops towards to hit him.---Available for Purchase: King of the Dead, Soldier of the Dead, Rohirrim Soldier---Middle-earth Interlude:Meanwhile, at Camp Frodo...==================4O. Cirith Ungol ==================="Thats for Frodo. Thats for the Shire. And thats for my old Gaffer!" - SamTrue Adventurer at 54,000Characters: Sam, Shagrat, Frodo---Walkthrough -Shelob - Yes, for some reason, since you have to have a second player, you have the help of Shagrat the orc in this fight against Shelob. What youll need to do is collect the phial and Sting near Frodo. Hold the phial to chase away Shelob, then take out Sting and press Circle in the glowing circle to attack. Once you stab the spider, it will climb up on the wall, so throw the phial at it to get it down, otherwise youll be dealing with little spiders and web shots. Continue this tactic for three attacks and youll drive up Shelob.
The Tower - Fling Sams rope above you to drag down the light fixture, then throw the nearby rock at the chain to drop it onto the stuck orc. Head down yourselves, then head into the darkness to the left with Frodo to find a cog for the gate. Place it, then head down the stairs. Clean out all the orcs down here, then head out the gate.Courtyard - To make it out of here, youll need to disguise yourselves as orcs in armor. Lets take all of the pieces in turn: Orc Armor #1: Head to the right, pick up a nearby small rock, and throw it at the pipe above. The orc beneath it will jump into the shower and toss out his armor. Orc Helmet #1: Head over to the green banners to the right of the gate. Burn them, then grab the nearby rope to burn the other parts. Assemble the pieces to make a catapult, then hop in so you launch yourself to the right. Use your rope to climb up, then head to the right and smash the barrels to hit the orc on the stairs. Take the helmet. Orc Helmet #2: Assemble the pieces near the end of the stairs so Frodo can go up, then at the top, put on your Elven Cloak so you can sneak by the orc so he wont shut the gate on you. Climb up the nearby ladder, then smash up the barrel and the rocks so you can find two pieces of a hammer. You can use this hammer like Gimli would, so smash the floor so you can take out the orc inside and his helmet. Turn the crank to open the gate. Orc Armor #2: Head further left and burn down the wood. Head left and push both boxes over the edge, then assemble all the pieces. Push the platform all the way to the right and smash the boarded up window to find the armor. Now, all you have to do is have both characters stand in front of each guard and youre done.---New Characters: Frodo (Orc Disguise), Sam (Orc Disguise), Shagrat---Middle-earth Interlude:All right, I guess we cant put off this awesome battle any longer,can we?

The Flying Beast - First, we need to unhorse the Witch-king, as it were. Stay far away from its attacks and wait until it slams its head into the ground and is stunned. Slash it three times, then wait for your opportunity again. Keep it up until the beast is down.The Witch-King - Remember when you fought the Troll and you needed to stand on spots so it would get stuck? Same deal here. Stand on the marked spot until the Witch-king shrieks, then move and, once its mace is stuck, slash it. Youll need to make two more spots like that. Build one to your right, and the third is to the left beneath some scrub. Once you use all three of those spots, youll be able to finish him off.Mumakil - And now for the big targets. There are two types of mumakil to take down. One type is easy. They have anklets of Morgul blocks, so Aragorn just needs to slash them, then hell automatically hop up to the top and take out the driver. For the other kind, Legolas has to shoot arrows into the holes on the side, then flip up to the top using the poles and ropes, then take out the driver. You have to take out two, then three.---New Characters: King Théoden, Éowyn (Dernhelm), Merry (Rohirrim Squire)Available for Purchase: Witch-king, Denethor, Gothmog, Citadel Guard, Corsair, Haradrim---Middle-earth Interlude:The gaze has shifted once again, this time to Mount Doom.

First, a Troll will attack.Have Gimli smash the cracked block, then assemble it into a platform tostand on so the Troll hits it. Next, some catapults will fire. Smash therocks, assemble them into a platform, then lure the Troll onto it for thenext hit. Lastly, three Morgul blocks will be tossed. Slash them up withAndúril, assemble them, and get the last hit on that Troll.Now a Nazgûl will swoop in. Keep away from it until it rears up, exposingthe target on its chest, then have Legolas fire at it.Now the battle will take you to the side of the gate. A second Troll hasshown up to tango. Head towards it and shoot the armor on each of itsshoulders with arrows. It will smash the rocks to the left. Assemble the
pieces and head through the crawlspace. Press Circle in the glowing circleto knock the Troll around. Once its stunned, have Legolas shoot it.Youll now head back to the center.

For one, Frodo is so weary he cant jump. For another, were on an active volcano. So, head to the right and smash the boxes to find pieces for a ramp. Head right, hop onto the island in the middle of the lava, and rope the rocks down so Frodo can cross. Next, position Frodo on the little rock near the rails, then hop up as Sam and rope to the upper ledge. Stand on the rock near the lava jet to make it go down and Frodos go up. Remember this, as youll be doing it a few times as you go through. Head into the darkness with Frodo and push the rock into the lava. Dig up the spot with Sam to find a rock, then throw it at the rock to the right to fully block the flow. Continue to the right, past the jets in the walls, then leap onto the rails to pull off some rocks. Time your movements so Frodo can get across, then proceed further right. Head into the darkness beneath the colored blocks. Make sure Sam stays with you as you go through. On the other side, fling Sams rope at the hook to pull the rocks down to cross. Now you have the two lava holes balance thing again. Have Sam jump on the left one so Frodo can go up on the right. Unfortunately, Frodo cant go forward anymore, and Sam cant go with him, so head back to the left and smash the rocks to uncover a plank. Drop Frodo from the plank onto the left-hand rock to raise Sam up. Sam can cross the gap to the right, dig up the pieces, and assemble them into a bridge for Frodo.
Use the rope again to pull down the rocks. Youll find another lava balance. Put Frodo on the right and have Sam rope up to the left. Once Frodo gets off on solid ground, smash up the rocks to put together a pillar on the tiles. Push Frodo to the right, then have him go through the dark cave on the back wall and smash the rocks to block the lava. Both of you can now go through the crawlspace to the top. Gollum wants a piece of you, now. Alternate between Frodo and Sam throwing rocks at him. Knock him in the head five times to move on.The Cracks of Doom - First, Frodo needs to shake off Gollum. Have Sam smack Gollum to knock a heart off. Gollum will knock you down to a lower level. Assemble the pieces, then climb back up using the rails. After the next hit, Gollum will knock you down to a different area. Assemble the pieces and use the rope to go to the right, then assemble again and climb out. Hit Gollum one more time, then have Frodo assemble the blocks to let Sam climb back out, and hit Gollum one last time.The End of All Things - Run.---New Characters: Frodo (Weary), Sam (Weary), Aragorn (Royal Armor)Available for Purchase: Boromir (Captain), Bilbo Baggins (Old)---Congratulations!

You dont have to walk up to the missions 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.Heres a list of what they mean, when theyre not specific characters:Free Play - Youll need to do it on Free Play, most likely because youll have the characters already in your stable, just not access to them yet, or youll need to be able to hot switch on the fly.
Spade - You need either Sam, or the Mithril Trowel forged.Arrows - Youll need Legolas or another archer character. Most likely Legolas will be the best bet, as some acrobatics might be required as well.Rope - Youll need either Sams rope or a rope item, like the Mithril Rope.Phial - Youll need Frodos phial he got from Galadriel.Strength - Youll need an orc character (such as Shagrat, whom you get for free), or the Mithril Boxing Gloves.Explosives - Youll need either Mithril Fireworks or the Berserker character.==============5A.
