Go back out again and take the stairs down on the left. Turn left and go 
down the stairs. Follow the path all the way and there will be a cut scene
with Aragorn. This will complete the 'Speak with Aragorn' quest. You will
also receive an Epic Scene - Secrets of the Family. You also get a new
quest.


 [HD8] Return to Gamling
 ========================

 'Return to Gamling in the Armory and learn how you may assist in the
 defensive preparations. He will need every sword.'


Theoden can be found near the two semi-circles in the map. There is an orange
dot where he is standing. Move near him and watch the cut scene. This 
completes the 'Speak with Theoden' quest. You receive an Epic Scene - 
Helm's Deep Convergence.

Go back to the Armory and speak to Gamling, which completes the above quest.
Gamling will ask whether you are ready to go to Deeping Wall. Make sure you
have saved your game before you answer yes.

During the battle, try to knock off the Uruk-Hai Ladders after you have 
defeated the Uruk-hai standing in front of it, otherwise more Uruk-hai will
keep on climbing up. Use Berethor's Stand Fast ability so that you will be
immune to the Stagger Strikes. Legolas's Uruk Skewer is very powerful, try 
and use that as often as you can. Use Idrial to cast Haste of the elves on 
Legolas, so his attack speed will increase. You can also try stunning attacks
such as Elegost's Crippling Shot, Idrial's Stunning Strike, etc.

I received a 2nd Age Steel Numenorian Long Sword for Berethor and 
Minas Tirith Bronze Vambraces for Elegost after the first battle. Make 
sure your characters are fully healed towards the end of the battle, as 
they will start the second battle straight after this.

The second battle begins immediately after the first. I received a 3rd Age
Iron Cutlass of Isengard for Idrial and a 3rd Age Isengard Uruk-hai Battle
Shield for Berethor after the second battle. After the third battle, I 
received a Rohirrim Steel Helm for Eaoden and a Gondorian Steel Fountain Guard
Fauld for Berethor.

Gimli joins you for the next battle. Use Elegost's Ranger Craft - Arrows of 
Sleep, this puts all of the Uruk-Hai to sleep, then you can focus on one at 
a time. Each time you kill the original Uruk-Hai, there will be 4 replacements,
one after the other. Eaoden's Rupture Armor skill comes into good use here.
After this battle, I received a 3rd Age Iron Uruk-hai Pike and Rohirrim
Boiled Leather Vambraces for Eoden.

After all the battles, equip your new equipment, upgrade the stats for each
character and save the game. You have a new quest

 
 [HD9] Aid Aragorn at the Gate
 ===============================

 'Hurry to the Helm's Deep Main Gate and help Aragorn defend it against the
 Uruk-hai assault.'


This is a good time to travel back to other chapters to level up your 
character's skills. I made sure that each of my characters learnt the
Gift of Galadriel skill from the Elfstone of Pure Light, so that they could
heal each other during battle. After I had done that, then I returned to 
Helm's Deep.

When you exit the armory, make sure you take the left turning into the semi-
circle area as soon as you exit. Examine the glowing lights to get a 
Rohirrim Boiled Leather Vambraces for Morwen and a 3rd Age Lothlorien 
Flaming Might Pendant for Idrial. Now, return to the armory and save your 
game again.

This time when you exit, go straight to the end of the path and turn left. 
Aragorn will join your party for this battle. I recommend using an Arnor 
Mushrooms for Aragorn, so that he will have unlimited AP. 

First, have Elegost cast his Arrows of Sleep. Then, let Idrial caste Haste of
Elves on Aragorn. Always use Aragorn's most powerful attack. Use Berethor's 
Leadership Skills as well as the stunning attacks of Idrial (Stunning Strike),
Hadhod (Crippling Smash) and Elegost (Crippling Shot).- I received 
Gondorian Steel Fountain Guard Vambraces for Berethor and Rohirrim Iron Greaves
for Eaoden after the battle.

Another battle begins immediately between two Uruk-hai's and a troll. Take out
the two Uruk-hai's first, as their HP is less. I received a 3rd Age Elven Silver
Tiara of the Galadhrim for Idrial and a 3rd Age Silverlode Raging Waters Pin for
Eaoden. Yet another battle begins immediately.

I found this battle even tougher than the one with Aragon. Get Idrial to cast 
her Frenzy as soon as you can. Cast Aura of the Valar on herself and one other
character (preferably your strongest character). Use Idrial to revive/cast Aura 
of the Valar as much as possible. She must ALWAYS be in your party. As soon as 
she dies and revives herself, cast Aura of the Valar on herself yet again so 
that she will auto-revive the next time round. You have to get this rhythm 
correct. 

Use your characters double skills so that they can always take two turns at 
one time. Then use their most powerfull attacks. Use Berethor's Stand Fast 
Skill to avoid the Staggering Attacks together with Eaoden's Armor Rupture 
skill. I received a Dwarven Steel Scale-mail Hauberk for Hadhod and a 3rd Age 
Rohirrim Shield of the Royal Court for Berethor. 

After all these many, many battles, you will finally complete the 'Aid Aragorn
at the Gate' quest as well as the 'Defend Helm's Deep' quest. The Helm's Deep
Chapter is now 100% completed! After saving your game, you will have unlocked
a new chapter for Evil Mode.


 ----------
|Osgiliath |
 ----------

'This ancient Gondorian city straddles the Anduin River east of Minas Tirith,
and for years has defended against river crossings.'


Move past the save point and view a cut scene. You will then fight four
battles with Orcs, one after the other. Elegost's Arrows of Sleep works well
here. I received Rohirrim Steel Greaves for Morwen after the second battle and
a 3rd Age Silverlode Ring of Haven for Berethor after the third battle.

For the fifth battle, Faramir will join your party. I received a 2nd Age Steel
Long Sword of Minas Tirith and a Gondorian Steel Fountain Guard Chestplate for
Berethor after the battle. 

For the Epic Scenes, I received The Elves Arrive, The Uruk-hai Army Approaches,
Shatter the Wall, Fall Back!, Saruman's End Draws Near, Final Retreat, 
Look to My Coming!, You Are Free of His Possession, Osgiliath Assault and
Realization of Past Cowardice.


 [OS1] Save the Defenders
 ==========================

 'Come to the aid of Gondorian Defenders throughout the besieged city.'


There are several chests to the back of the save point, one near the bottom 
of the stairs containing a 1st Age Golden Belt Buckle of The Lords for 
Hadhod, and a 3rd Age Rohirric Double-Bit Axe for Morwen. Another is
directly behind the save point containing a 3rd Age Hammerhand Pin of Might 
for Eaoden, you also receive an Epic Scene - A Long Planned Invasion.

Clear the square area of any fighting people. Towards the long path, there 
is a chest containing Rohirrim Steel Vambraces for Morwen and an Epic Scene
- Denethor's Favor. Go to the next screen, and you will receive another Epic
Scene - Spawn of Sauron. Go to the little area and fight a battle with some
Orcs. I received a 2nd Age Dwarf Belt Buckle of The Lords for Hadhod. Now
a little way down the path there is a chest containing a 3rd Age Rohirric 
Steel Spear for Eaoden.

For the next battle, I received a 3rd Age Gondorian Steel Infantry Spear for
Eaoden and a 3rd Age Gondorian Cuisse of Haven for Morwen. There
is a chest on the right hand pocket near the save point containing a Rohirrim 
Plumed Steel Royal Guard Helm for Eaoden, and another containing a 3rd Age 
Mirkwood Bow and a Dunedain Wool Ranger Hood for Elegost.

Moving along, I received Dwarven Steel Greaves for Hadhod, 3rd Age Mearas Pin
of Haven for Eaoden, 2nd Age Elven Steel Fauld for Idrial and a Rohirrim
Steel Helm for Morwen after battles. In the next mini-area, there is a chest
containing 2nd Age Elven Steel Pauldrons for Idrial.

In the next screen, view the cut scene and, you will receive a new quest and
a new Epic scene - Outmatched.


 [OS2] To the Bridge!
 =====================

 'Fight through to Faramir and his men, so you may aid in the defense of
 Osgiliath's main bridge.'


There is a chest to the left containing a 3rd Age Leather Cuisse of Haste for
Morwen and a 2nd Age Elven Pendant of Wrath for Idrial. Behind the fighting
people, there is a chest containing 3rd Age Easterling Polearm for Eaoden.

There's another chest containing Dwarven Steel Plate Vambraces for Hadhod and
a 2nd Age Rivendell Brooch of Sanctuary for Elegost around that area near the
orange dot.

Fight more battles with the people around that area to receive a Rohirrim
Steel Chain-mail Hauberk for Morwen, 3rd Age Rohirrim Battle Shield for Eaoden.
There is a chest to the right area of the save point containing 2nd Age Elven 
Crystal Tiara of Nenya for Idrial. This completes the 'Save the Defenders'
quest.

Move towards the orange dot. I received a 2nd Age Steel Numenorian Battle Helm
for Berethor after fighting several battles. View the cut scene, and then a 
battle will begin. 

Faramir will join you for this battle. Try and attack Gothmog, the Orc Army 
Commander. If you focus on the others, once they are dead, Gothmog will call 
others to take their place. You can kill ONE Orc, if you kill two, Gothmog will
replace them. 

You MUST use a Morgul Decay, this item is very useful. It will strip Gothmog of
his armor, so you will be able to deal critical hits to him. This battle was not
easy for me, the members in my party kept dying. Valinor Medicine was very 
useful, it revives all the knocked out members in your party. Also use Idrial's 
Frenzy, which allows her to take two spirit actions. Then use her Aura of the 
Valar to protect your party members. If they are killed, they will automatically
be revived and their Action Points restored. Once you have removed Gothmog's 
armor, use all the two/three strike melee attacks, and he should go down pretty
quickly.

After the battle, I received a Dwarven Steel Scale-mail Tabard for Hadhod and a 
Dunedain Scale-Mail Hauberk for Elegost. This complets the 'To the Bridge!' 
quest. You also get a new Epic Scene - Crossing the Anduin.

Now, turn back and save your game. Then, head towards the orange dot. View the 
cut scene, after which you receive a new quest and a new Epic Scene - 
Routes Known to Faramir. 


 [OS3] Rescue Idrial
 ======================

 'You must find a way to reach the occupied island if you hope to rescue Idrial
 before she is overwhelmed by enemies.'


Move forward, and you do battle with Idrial against 2 Orcs. After the battle, 
receive another Epic Scene - Revelation of Morgul Possession. Move forward and 
do battle with a Ringwraith Fell Beast Captain. Use Hadhod's Crippling Smash
and Elegost's Crippling Shot. After the battle, you receive an Epic Scene - 
Fear of the Nazgul. 

Go straight ahead, there is a chest at the end, to the left. Along the way, 
I fought with another Ringwraith and received Rohirrim Steel Pauldrons for 
Morwen. In the chest is a 2nd Age Dwarven Steel Battle Axe for Hadhod.

Now, take the other path. You will have several more battles against 
Ringwraiths. Save your game at the save point. I had another battle with a
Ringwraith and received Rohirrim Leather Tassets and a 3rd Age Royal Court
Gold Spear for Eaoden. Go back and save your game before continuing forward.

In the next scene, you will receive a new quest.


 [OS4] Spoils of War
 =====================

 'Many of the Enemy's weapons have been lost to the river. You must find one
 that will aid you in this battle.'


If you go straight ahead, then turn left, you will have a battle between
Idrial and two enemies. They keep hitting you with the Staggering Bash,
so that you hardly ever get a chance to go! To the end of the path, is a 
3rd Age Easterling Battle Shield for Berethor and a Polished Elfstone of Armor
Enhancement. After getting these items, you will complete the 'Spoils of War' 
quest.

Now, make your way towards the orange dot. On the right to the end, is a 
save point. Make your way to the large area. Turn right just before that,
there is a chest containing Rohirrim Steel Pauldrons for Eaoden. Now, go to the
large area and there will be a new quest.


 [OS5] Hands of Healing
 =======================

 'Idrial faces desperate odds and will certainly be wounded. You must
 bring means to heal her for the fight yet to come.'


There is a save point somewhere in the waters. The shortest dead end path leads 
you to a 3rd Age Spear of the Royal Guard for Eaoden and a 2nd Age Imladris 
Ring of Sanctuary for Berethor. This completes the 'Hands of Healing' quest.

The next dead end on the right contained an Elfstone. The next dead end 
contains Rohirrim Steel Vambraces for Eaoden and another chest with a 
Gondorian Wool Warrior Cloak for Berethor and 2nd Age Numenorian Command
Pendant for Idrial. Go back towards the large area, there is a chest on the 
left of the exit, containing 2nd Age Elven Mithril Greaves for Idrial and
Gondorian Steel Fountain Guard Pauldrons for Berethor. The dead end after that
contained a 2nd Age Dwarven Mithril Double-Bit Axe for Hadhod. After finding 
all of the chests, the 'Spoils of War' quest should be completed.

Now make your way to the paths that intersect. There is a save point half
way through. Exit the sewers and Berethor and Idrial will fight against
two Ringwraith Shadow Captains. Have Idrial cast Haste of Elves on 
Berethor and her auto-reviving skill, then simply use Berethor's strongest 
attack. After the battle, I received a 3rd Age Emnet Pin of Fortification for
Eaoden.

Immediately after, you will have a battle with the witch-king of Agmar. He is
impossible to hurt, and you will view a cut-scene. Now, the battle will resume
again. Have Idrial cast Haste of Elves on Berethor, and use her to heal the
party. Berethor should cast his Leadership skill - Company Might, then attack
with his strongest attack skill. After the battle, I received a 2nd Age 
Mithril Long Sword of Minas Tirith for Berethor and a 2nd Age Steel Elven War
Sword for Idrial. This completes the 'Rescue Idrial' quest. You will also gain
a new Epic Scene - Possession Overcome.

Exit the arena, and view the cut scene. A battle with two trolls will begin
immediately. I received a Rohirrim Steel Chain-mail Skirt for Eaoden and a 3rd
Age Mordor Orc Shortbow for Elegost after the battle. 

You have now completed 100% of the Osgiliath Chapter.


 -------------
|Minas Tirith |
 -------------

'Standing upon seven walled levels, the White City has served as Gondor's 
final bulwark against Sauron throughout the Third age.'

You first quest is to:


 [MT1] Defend the Courtyard
 ============================

 'Aid in the defense of Minas Tirith's Courtyard. Assist the Gondorian soldiers
 to the last!'


Everywhere you see people fighting, aim for them. There's a save point in the
middle of the courtyard. After saving, you will unlock a new chapter in Evil
Mode. After the battles, I received a 3rd Age Gondorian Battle Shield for 
Berethor, a 3rd Age Rohirrim Shield of the Royal Court for Eaoden and a 
Dunedain Scale-mail Skirt for Elegost. This completes the 'Defend the 
Courtyard' quest. There is a chest on the upper right hand corner (assuming
the orange dot is in front) containing a Gondorian Mithril Fountain Guard Helm
for Berethor.

Go towards the orange dot, where you will fight three trolls and then a mixture 
of Trolls and Orcs. Use Berethor's Stand fast Skill to avoid stunning attacks.
After battle, save your game at the save point.

Move towards the orange dot, and view the cut scene with Gandalf. A battle
will begin immediately after. You fight a four group of Orcs, and then another
two groups of Orcs. Use Elegost's Arrows of Sleep skill to put the enemies to
sleep, and then attack them. I received a Dunedain Wool Captain's Hood for
Elegost after the battle. There is a new quest to complete.


 [MT2] Stay the Rampaging Troll
 ================================

 'A Mountain Troll has broken through the Main Gate defenses. You must stop 
 him before he causes more damage in the city.'


Look around, there is a cheest containing a 1st Age Mithril Belt Buckle of 
the Fathers for Hadhod nearby. Make your way to the end of the path first, 
there is a chest containing a 2nd Age Silver Lune Silver Scimitar for Idrial
and a 3rd Age Bronze Cuisse of Fortification for Morwen. Now, go back and 
fight the Troll standing at the main gate. I received Dwarven Black Iron 
Pauldrons for Hadhod after the battle. This completes the 'Stay the Rampaging
Troll' quest. You also receive a new Epic Scene - Darkness Overcome. There is 
a chest in front of you containing a 3rd Age Citadel Guard Bronze Spear for 
Eaoden.

Now go through the door where the orange dot is and view the cut scene. You 
now have two new quests.

 'A Troll is assaulting the Outer Wall. Stop him before he kills more 
 Gondorians and weakens that section of the city.'


 [MT4] Save Troops from a Troll
 ===============================

 'Orcs and a Troll have trapped a group of Gondorian warriors in an alley 
 behind the Outer Wall. Stop these attackers quickly.'


Move forward and save your game. Go to the left, and do battle with two Trolls.
This completes the 'Defeat an Outer Wall Troll' quest. You also receive a new
Epic Scene - Linked Gates. There is a chest just in front containing 
Gondorian Steel Warrior Greaves for Berethor.

Now, turn around and go the other way. There is a chest containing a 
2nd Age Numenorian Ring of Command for Berethor. Go up the stairs and take
the left junction. You will do battle with two trolls and receive a 3rd Age
Fangorn Binding Pendant for Idrial. This completes the 'Save Troops from a
Troll' quest.

Turn around and go the other way. View the cut scene, then begin a battle 
against several Orcs. You only have control of Morwen, Eaoden and Hadhod
during this battle. After that, you do battle with a Ringwraith. You control
Berethor, Idrial and Elegost here. You will alternate between battling Orcs 
with the first party, and Ringwraiths with the second party. After the battle,
you receive a new Epic Scene - Gondor is Weak.

There is a chest just beside you on the right, containing a 2nd Age Dwarven
Mithril Piercing axe for Hadhod and a Polished Elfstone of Action 
Enhancement. On the right area, do battle with a group of Orcs to receive a
Rohirrim Steel Chain-mail Skirt for Morwen. In front of the save point is a 
chest containing Minas Tirith Mithril Vambraces for Elegost.

In one of the areas on the left, I battled with a group of Orcs to receive a
2nd Age Fountain GUard Bronze Spear for Eaoden.

Now aim for the trolls and defeat them. I received a Sword of the Stewards of
Minas Tirith for Berethor and a 3rd Age Wild Man Spear of Dunland for Eaoden
after the battle. You also receive a new Epic Scene - Gandalf Rallies the City.

On the left, there is a chest containing Numenorian Steel Pauldrons for

Follow the path, fighting Orcs as you go along. I received a 2nd Age Eriador
Iron Falchion for Idrial after a battle. This completes the 'Defend the
Third Gate' quest. You also receive a new Epic Scene - I Shall Break Him.

To the front, at the dead end, is a chest containing 2nd Age Elven Mithril
Vambraces for Idrial. Follow the path and you receive a new quest.


 [MT6] Stop Nazgul and Fell Beast
 =================================

 'You must check the Nazgul and his Fell Beast as they attempt to slay all
 Gondorian defenders at the Fourth Gate.'


There is a chest to the right containing Rohirrim Steel Chain-mail Hauberk for
Eaoden. After defeating the Nazgul, I received a Rohirrim Steel Scale-mail
Hauberk for Morwen. This completes the 'Stop Nazgul and Fell Beast' quest.

Further along the path, there is a chest containing a 1st Age Eregion Ring of
Weapon Warding for Berethor. A bit further on, there is a chest containing a
Rohirrim Heavy Steel Helm for Morwen and a Rohirrim Velvet Overcloak for 
Eaoden.

Towards the end, you will receive a new quest.


 [MT7] Aid Gandalf vs. Witch-king
 =================================

 'You must join Gandalf and help him drive the Witch-king away. Do this before
 he prevails against the White Wizard.'


Just in front is a chest containing Gondorian Steel Warrior Vambraces for
Berethor. Go through the door and view the cut scene. The battle will now
begin.

Use Idrial to caste Haste of Elves on Gandalf. Use Gandalf's Bolt of the Valar
each time which causes around 25,000 damage. This battle was no problem at all
for me due to Gandalf! I got a 2nd Age Gold Elven Battle Shield for Berethor
after the battle. This completes the 'Aid Gandalf vs. Witch-king' quest.

There is a chest to the left containing a 2nd Age Isildur's Pin of Wrath
for Eaoden. Further down that little alley, there is another chest containing

Warrior Chestplate for Berethor. Moving towards a chest on the right 
(containing Rohirrim Steel Captain's Pauldrons for Eaoden) in front of the save 
point, I received an Epic Scene - Failure of the Steward. Towards the end of the
room, battle some Orcs to receive a Dwarven Mithril Scale-mail Tabard for 
Hadhod. This completes the 'Recover Banner of Elendil' quest as well as 100% of
the Minas Tirith Chapter.



 ----------------
|Pelennor Fields |
 ----------------

'These open fields surrounding Minas Tirith are destined to fill with Orcs,
should Gondor's Control of the river ever falter.'


At the start of this chapter, you will do battle with some Orcs. After the 
battle, I received a 3rd Age Rohirrim Royal Guard Shield for Eaoden and a new 
Epic Scene - The Six Thousand. 

There are two quests when you begin this chapter.


 [PF1] Ride to Ruin
 ====================

 'Theoden fights for the future of the Free Peoples. Join him.'


 [PF2] Fight for the King
 ==========================

 'Fight for the King of the West in the final hour, as the Dark Lord moves to
 crush the world of Men.'


There is a chest to the right, at the back containing Rohirrim Steel Captain's
Pauldrons for Morwen. To the left, is a save point. You will unlock a new 
chapter in Evil Mode when you save your game.

Move forward, fighting several a battle with Orcs as you do so. In the next
screen, there is a chest on the left containing a Gondorian Wool FOuntain Guard
Hood for Elegost and a 1st Age Galadhrim Pin of Spirit Warding for Eaoden. 

Continue onwards to battle more Orcs. I received a 1st Age Mithril Long Sword 
of the Valar for Berethor and a 2nd Age Elven Gold Spear of Amon Hen for Eaoden.
As you reach a junction with a save point, you will receive an Epic Scene -
New Tactics.

Go straight and do battle with an Orc and a Troll. I received a 2nd Age 
Forlindon Mithril Falchion for Idrial and a 3rd Age Shield of the Stewards for
Berethor. There is a chest at the end of the path. Now, go back to the save 
point and take the other junction.

Take the left junction. I received a Dwarven Mithril Pauldrons for Hadhod and 
Rohirrim Steel Tassets for Morwen after battles. Straight ahead, there is a 
chest containing a 3rd Age Dwarven Mithril Walking Axe for Morwen. Continue 
along the path, there is a chest containing a 3rd Age Elven Silver Tiara of
Caras Galadhon for Idrial.

Now, go back to the junction and turn left. I received a Rohirrim Steel 
Scale-mail Hauberk for Eaoden and a 2nd Age Earendil Mithril Battle Shield for
Berethor after battles with a Ringwraith. There is a save point on the left. 
Further in, you will receive an Epic Scene - Monsters From the South.

After battling a Troll and a Easterling warrior, take the junction to the
right. I received Dwarven Mithril Vambraces and Dwarven Mithril Greaves
for Hadhod after battles. There is a chest containing a 1st Age Galadhrim
Brooch of Spirit Warding for Elegost and a 1st Age Eregion Pin of Weapon
Warding for Eaoden. Turn around and go back to the other junction now.

You have to fight a giant elephant-like creature now. After defeating it, 
there is a save point to the left (a bit behind). Move forward and view a cut
scene, after which you will fight the witch king. Eowyn will join your party
for this battle. 

First, use Morgul Decay on the Witch-king. This will totally remove his 
armor. Next, use all the weakening attacks, eg weaken armor, speed, etc.

Idrial - Weakening Slash
Hadhod - Hew Armor
Morwen - Poisoned Wounds

After that, I used the many-striked melee attacks. If a party member died, I 
used Idrial's Power of the Valar, which resurrected them to full health and
replenished their AP.

After the battle, I received a Helm of the Great Hall for Morwen and a 2nd
Age Silver Spear of The Queen of Lorien for Eaoden. This completes the 'Ride
to Ruin' quest. You also receive an Epic Scene - Fall of the Witch-king.

Continue along the path, you will have to fight against Easterling warriors.
If they use the Black shield, then use Eaoden's Spirit Powers - Dispel to
remove the shield. There is a save point nearby after the battle as well as a
chest which contains a 3rd Age Easterling Iron Broad Axe for Morwen.

Move on to fight the elephant after which I received a 2nd Age Fell Numenorian
Battle Helm for Berethor and a 3rd Age Rohan Infantry Shield for Eaoden. Go

along the path and battle another elephant.

Turn left at the junction to do battle with Orcs and Easterlings. There is a 
chest containing Drops of Healing and Dwarven Ale. Now go back to the 
junction and take the other path.

You now have to battle TWO elephants at one go. Get Idrial to cast her Frenzy
as soon as you can. Cast Aura of the Valar on herself and one other character.
Use Idrial to revive/cast Aura of the Valar as much as possible. She must 
ALWAYS be in your party. As soon as she dies and revives herself, cast Aura 
of the Valar on herself yet again so that she will auto-revive the next time 
round.  You have to get this rhythm correct in order to beat the two 
elephants.

Use your characters double skills so that they can always take two turns at 
one time. Then use their most powerfull attacks. My two favourite characters
are Berethor (use his double skill and then his multiple melee attacks) and
Hadhod (his attacks are VERY powerful). Using this method, I was able to beat
the elephants on my second attempt.

Move forward to view a cut scene. Immediately after that, you will fight some
Orcs and a Troll. You have control of Aragorn during this battle. This was
so easy compared to the previous one! Use Elegost's arrows of sleep to put
some of them to sleep, then take them out one by one. Use Aragorn's Call the
Dead skill to completely destroy the enemies! There is a save point slightly 
behind you after this battle.

Move forward to the next scene to battle a Ringwraith. After defeating it, I
received a 3rd age Bronze Cuisse of Battle for Morwen. The next battle is 
with Orcs and a Troll. I received an Epic Scene - Return of the King after the
battle. In the next battle, you fight against some Orcs, again, very simple.
Just use Aragorn's Call of the Dead and they will all go down. This completes
the 'Fight for the King' quest. You also receive the final Epic Scene - 
The Brave Prevail. This completes 100% of the Pelennor Fields chapter.

Save your game and then move forward. You will fight against three Trolls.
After the battle, view the cut scene and then battle against four Ringwraiths.
When you finish that battle, you will start another one with more Ringwraiths.
View the next cut scene, and then you will fight against the Eye of Sauron.

Again, use Idrial to cast Frenzy, then Aura of the Valar. Use Morgul Decay as
soon as you can to get rid of the Eye's Armor. Then, just attack with your
most powerful skills.

When it casts Paralysis of Light, use Dwarven Ale on Berethor, so that he
can cast his Shield of Courage, which will remove all the negative effects.
Alternatively, you can use Idrial's Cleansing Waters to rid the anti-magic.

After you have finished with the last battle, view the cut scene. This ends
your game!

I think it is not possible to gain 100%, at the last save point, you will only
have 99% completed. Most probably the last few battles complete the final 1%,
but as it is not possible to save the game at the end, we will never find out!


===============================================================================
[SKI] Skills
===============================================================================

Each character has different skills that they can learn. Perfect Mode skills 
are the same for each character. Each character can gain skill points when they
use their skills. Each time they use a skill, they gain skill points. If they 
miss the enemy or the enemy dodges, they will NOT gain a skill point. After 
they gain enough skill points, they will learn the new skill that has been set 
under the menu page.

In order to level up your skills quickly, here is a tactic that you can use.
Once you have gotten Elegost's Arrows of Sleep skill, use it to put the enemies
to sleep. Then you can use skills that do NOT attack the enemy (once you 
attack, the enemy will wake up) such as Berethor's Leadership Skills, Hadhod's
Shield skills, Idrial's Healing skills, etc. Using this method, you should be
able to gain skills quickly.

For Morwen, if you use her Seize Skill, this will steal Skill Points from the
enemies. These points will alternate between her Dual-Axe craft and her Thief
Craft. Bigger enemies will get more SP, eg, if you steal from a troll, you can
get 3 or 4 SP.

There are also special skills that can only be learnt when an Elfstone is 
equipped. For example, in order to Craft Items, the character needs to have 
equipped that Elfstone. Once the skill has been learnt, it doesn't matter if 
you equip the Elfstone to a different player, the skill will still be available
for use.
