Lord of the Rings: War in the North Walkthrough
Table of Contents
- Welcome to the chilly, wind-swept wilds. As you make your way up the slope you’ll meet three packs of orcs, but they’re spaced out enough that none is too rough on their own. Look out for black piles on the sides of the path that you can loot. Through the next proceed point you’ll meet two trolls, so it’s probably time to break out the eagles. Look for heavily armored orcs, as well. After you’re through with all that, move on and look for a cave to the right before you proceed along the obvious path.
- As you cross a ridge, you’ll activate a cutscene. The next posse of orcs is ROUGH, they have hammers, they will throw you back with damage, and regular attacks are often blocked, so get ready to hit hard. When they’re done, hang a left to loop back down near where you were for some loot before moving on. Hit the proceed point, move on just a little, and you’ll trigger another cutscene.
- Around the corner you’ll meet four orcs, two heavy ones and two crossbow men. Divide and conquer, then loot. On the altar-like space, there’s a transpo point if you want to stock up before moving on. Otherwise, look for the ice bridge and move on. On the other side, your party will note that the way is barred, but not for long! Kill the troll and enter the cave.
- Inside the cave are two more trolls, so feel free to retreat the way you came to take them one at a time. Move through the cave and across anothe ice bridge to proceed and you’ll start another cutscene. You’ll note an orc war party across the way, and you can get the drop on them with distance attacks before they catch you, but there are a number of crossbows and hammer soldiers in the party, so prepare for some heavy fighting. Once you’re done, the party will examine the door, and you can move into the mountain.
