Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest Walkthrough

Billed as the game that will put you in right inside the chain mail of Middle Earth’s biggest hero, Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest promises 3rd-person hack-and-slash combat with an additional dose of horseback riding and archery. Gamers will take control of Isildur’s heir as he battles his way through the set-piece engagements of J.R.R. Tolkein’s epic trilogy, putting paid to many an orc along the way.

The developers have cooked up an interesting narrative conceit, presenting the martial material with the help of Samwise Gamgee — the game’s levels take the form of stories, told by Sam to a group of young hobbits. This walkthrough is intended to ease your progress through Sam’s fables.

Live the legend of Aragorn – mighty swordsman, Ranger, and eventual High King – as told through the tales of companion Samwise! Create the strongest army possible in the battle against Sauron with this guide to every Token, Lore item, and Hidden Chest. Middle Earth needs you at your best!

  48. Just ahead of the Palintir is a tree. Check behind it for a Gandalf Token.
  49. Continuing forward, examine the glowing track.

Regular attacks still affect them but only when aflame. Don’t forget that you are not holding your shield and therefore cannot block attacks!
  87. After the first Ringwraith, two more will appear to fight you at once. After they are defeated, a final one challenges you. This last one is capable of doing an area attack that will knock you back. It takes a little bit to charge up, however, so evade backwards to safety. If you need health, check for the barrels located around the perimeter of the stage.
  88. New Quest: Heal Frodo enough to continue.
  89. Hold A at your fallen ally to revive him.

  17. Go through the gate and up the hill. Before engaging the Troll, let the other enemies gather around you so you can defeat them all at once and give yourself some room when fighting the real enemy.
  18. One well placed Heavy Strike will nearly, if not completely, defeat the Troll.
  19. New Quest: Man the oil cauldron.
  20. Before heading up the slope, go right to the destroyed Siege Tower for a Gimli Token.
  21. Now make your way up the slope. Turn left and climb the stairs. Turn right on the wall to find a hidden alcove with a Lore Item.
  22. Turn around and operate the cauldron.
  23. New Quest: Reach the main gate.
  24. Go down the stairs and follow the path until you see a Trail Marker.
  25. Quest Updated: Talk to Pippin.
  26. Examine the marker then proceed forward for a Legolas Token. Open the Chest in the inlet for some silver.
  27. Exit and speak with the Hobbit. He’ll give you the Horn of Gondor. When you’re standing still, you can hold A like you would to use the Battle Cry, but shake the Nunchuck instead to execute the Rally. This ability heals all your allies, and makes them temporarily invulnerable and fearless.
  28. Defeat the Troll and head forward. Turn left at the first alcove for a Lore Item.
  29. New Quest: Clear the area.
  30. Defeat all the Orcs on the street. Head through the gate and speak with the soldier.
  31. New Side Quest: Heal the wounded.
  32. [1/6] The first wounded soldier is directly ahead.
  33. [2/6] Turn right for the second. Grab the Lore nearby.
  34. Examine the Trail Marker to the soldier’s left. Head forward then right for a Chest.
  35. New Side Quest: Destroy the Siege Towers.
  36. Look out into the field and fire on the Towers to destroy them. They require several hits, so use the nearby Arrow Racks if you run low on ammunition.
  37. Head south to find a Lore Item in the small room at the end.
  38. At the north end of the wall is another small room with a page of the Red Book and a Chest.
  39. Now head down the stairs and immediately turn right. A Gandalf Token is in the side alcove.
  40. [3/6] Proceed back on the road and turn right at the Troll. A Legolas Token rests behind the potted plant. Heal the soldier behind the Troll.
  41. [4/6] Continue past the Archers and up the stairs for another wounded soldier.
  42. Quest Updated: Defend Gimli.
  43. [5/6] To the immediate right, at the bottom of the steps is the fifth soldier.
  44. [6/6] Run past all the fighting to find the last soldier. Turn left to also find a Lore Item and a Chest.
  45. Return to the main area and defeat all the enemies. Proceed through the gate.
  46. Quest Updated: Defeat the Trolls.
  47. Turn around from your starting position and destroy the basket for another Aragorn Token.
  48. Fight the Trolls one at a time using a combination of evade-and-prompts and Heavy Strikes.
  49. New Quest: Defeat the Witch-king.
  50. The Witch-king isn’t terribly strong, but he’ll defend against almost every normal attack. Evade his moves and strike with the prompts. If you build up enough strength, use a Heavy Strike to cut him down quickly.
  51. Quest Updated: Find Eomer.
  52. Mount Brego and turn towards the field. Hang left and grab the Gandalf Token beside the tower. Head north to the destroyed tower for the last Aragorn Token. Now head southeast to another broken tower and a Legolas Token. Follow the eastern wall to yet another tower and the final Gimli Token.
  53. Now head to Eomer in the center of the field. Defeat any nearby enemies to speak with him.
  54. Quest Updated: Finish off the Warg Riders.
  55. Charge through the mounted enemies then clear the area around Eomer to speak with him again.
  56. New Quest: Stop the Oliphaunts from reaching Minas Tirith.
  57. There are three Oliphaunts that need to be destroyed. Simply ride up beside them and strike their legs to bring the large beasts down. Avoid riding in front of them and their trampling feet.
  58. Quest Updated: Defeat the second wave.
  59. Five more Oliphaunts will appear now. Defeat them the same way. Striking them from behind works equally as well.

  1. New Quest: Defeat the Mouth of Sauron.
  2. Run around the outer edge of the area to grab all the chapter’s Tokens. The only hidden one is inside some barrels in front of the center Archery stand.
  3. Sauron’s gaze will begin to wander when you aren’t fighting enough. Engage the Mouth. Use a Heavy Strike and recharge with the nearby plants. He’s quick and his attacks will knock you back even when defending. Like always, evade and attack with the prompts.
  4. Quest Updated: Defend Legolas.
  5. Fight through the enemies that surround Legolas in the western part of the area.
  6. Quest Updated: Defend Gimli from Archers.
  7. Move to the eastern Archery stall. Fire at the Archers on top of the nearby building.
  8. Quest Updated: Defeat the Trolls.
  9. Fight them like you always have, evade for prompts. Strike with strength attacks if available.
  10. Quest Updated: Help Legolas defeat the Archers.
  11. Move to the western Archery platform to shoot down the four Archers atop the building.
  12. Quest Updated: Help Gimli defend his men.
  13. Fight off the enemies around Gimli. Continue to use Rally and Battle Cry throughout the battle. You will refill your strength meter very quickly with all of the enemies around.
  14. Quest Updated: Keep Sauron’s army distracted.
  15. Several waves of enemies will appear including a large number of Trolls. Try not to get surrounded. If you do, use a Heavy Strike to deal heavy damage to all of them. Simply survive and fight long enough to complete the quest and the game.

Hey, good Walkthrough although when I actually got the game I didn’t really need it… But still, it’s really good. This sounds weird but I kinda won’t progress through the game now I’m in the land of the horse lords… I just LOVE RIDING BREGO XD I just keep fannying around to be honest… If you’re deciding whether or not to get the game, I recommend it. Lots of fighting, different places to explore… It’s really great.
