Welcome to my first PC FAQ! It is an FAQ for one of the most popular PC games
at the moment, and in my opinion, the best RTS out at the moment - until AoE
III, that is! Anyway, EA are continuing to churn out good Lord of the Rings
spinoffs, and more are no-doubt in the works. The Third Age was a good game
but the Battle for Middle Earth is even better. Although you can't really
compare them as they are of different genres.

They still rock though.

Anyway, my guide to this will cover EVERY aspect of the game in detail, from
the Live Map to the strength's and weaknesses of the different units, and of
course - the Walkthrough itself. I hope you enjoy the game, the time you spend
on it and my walkthrough. You deserve it for spending your well earned dosh on
a well developed game.

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth(tm) is an RTS game. The mechanics
of most RTS games are the same - you create units and buildings (empires) and
attack the enemies units and buildings (empires) until one team or the other
wins. Yes, it is very easy to lose an RTS battle because most of the time, the
battles are HUGE - over 200 units can be fighting at one time and if you have
multiple battles going on at one time, it'll be hard to keep up. That's why 
this guide is here though!

Controlling your units and buildings are easy - very easy in Battle for Middle
Earth (BfME for short from now on). I'll give a short tutorial on every
aspect in BfME in this section.
 _________________________________
/ Selecting Units           /*/  /--------------------------------------------
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
To select a single battalion or horde, simply left click on one of the members
of that battlion or horde you wish to control.

To gain control of say...your whole army, click somewhere and hold it down,
dragging a square around the desired units. Release to have them all under
 ________________________________
/ Buildings                /*/  /---------------------------------------------
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
There are limited building spots in BfME. In some missions the camp will be
relatively small, offering only about 6 or 7 spots to build proper buildings
on. Within bigger camps/cities, there are a LOT more.

To build a building, left click on the desired foundation and select the 
building you would like to build by clicking on it's image in the mini pop-up.
The building will take time to construct, but it'll be quite quick.
 ________________________________
/ Controlling Units        /*/  /---------------------------------------------
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
To order a unit/s to move to a certain spot on the map, select them by 
following the method taught in the first tutorial, then right click on the
piece of land you want them to go to.

To make a unit/s attack an enemy unit/s, select the unit desired with the 
method mentioned before. Hover over the enemy unit you wish to attack and then
right click when the crosshair icon appears.
 ________________________________
/ Heroes                   /*/  /---------------------------------------------
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Heroes are a new concept to RTS games, and I like them. Heroes are basically
the main characters from the films, and such have special powers, much more
health, more capable of dealing high damage and in general, are pretty much the
army themselves - on the easy level, of course. Controlling a Hero is easy, not
as easy as using a normal unit because of their special powers functions.

A hero may have many powers, and they will be described in the next section 
(Units). Using a Hero is simple, you can do their standard attacks (same as
controlling a normal unit) or by using their special powers, which require you
clicking on them individually, then clicking on the desired power you wish to
use.

Very useful, are Heroes. Although you have to level them up to gain access to
better powers, they are invaluable when fighting trolls and the mumakil.
 ________________________________
/ Upgrades                 /*/  /
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
If you don't upgrade your units, you'll find the later stages of the game 
harder than they should be. There are a couple of types of upgrade: Veterancy
Upgrades and bought Upgrades.

Veterancy Upgrades can be applied to buildings AND units. Over time, as units
fight and buildings work, their experience becomes greater, and when the bar
is full, they gain a new rank. Veterancy Upgrades can also be used with Heroes
and in the first level there are Veterancy Upgrade Shields, which let you level
up a hero automatically one level. 

Bought Upgrades are purchased with resources from the armoury or the building 
the unit came from. The buildings usually need ranking up before upgrades can
be purchased, though.
 ________________________________
/ Unit Merging             /*/  /---------------------------------------------
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Unit merging is useful in ways, but won't be used to often. To merge units,
select a unit and find a mergeable unit (cursor should change to show golden
arrows pointing each other) and then left click to merge.

Only certain units can be merged, and here they are:

i)    Yeoman Archer - Peasant (not much point unless you have "Draft" power)
ii)   Gondor Soldier - Ranger or Gondor Archer  (quite useful)
iii)  Gondor Tower Guard - Ranger or Gondor Archer (VERY USEFUL)
iv)   Elvish archers - Elvish swordsmen
v)    Uruk-hai - Crossbow Uruks (useful)
vi)   Uruk-hai - Pike Uruks (meh)
vii)  Pike Uruks - Crossbow Uruks
viii) Mordor Orcs - Orcish archers

That list was taken and re-arranged from LoneEagle013's guide. If you would 
like it removed, please contact me LoneEagle!

I will add more soon, I just feel the basics are pretty much covered...

I have got the knowledge necessary to compile a list of Units!

To control the plains around them Rohan commanders rely on the speed of swift
steeds and the advantages of position. High above the flatlands, fortresses 
such as Edoras provide both clear lines of sight across the plains and firing
positions for Rohan's fine archers. Against scouting parties, the swift Rohan
horseman can outflank or trample them before they reach the wooden walls of 
the fortress.

Once a fortification of Gondor at the southern end of the Misty Mountains,

Sauron. Saruman has razed the woods surrounding the Tower of Orthanc and has

In the shadow of Mount Doom, the eye of Sauron is building a legion of ruthless
minions to reclaim the One Ring. To his side, he has chained Orcs, Haradrim,
Trolls and the undead Nazgul, whose reach spreads across all of Middle-earth.
To acquire The One Ring, Sauron will slaughter any in his path: soldier,
civilian or even his own troops, for his Orc Pits, Troll Cages and Great Siege
Works provide nearly limitless weapons with which to scorch Middle-earth.

Ah, the "Good" Campaign is the easier of the two, but the battles are pretty
much 100% better in the Evil Campaign. Bigger armies, you see. Anyway, for
newbs to the RTS genre I recommend playing on this setting as it is quite a
bit easier than the Evil campaign due to the Units generally being better and
the god-damn ridiculous balancing of Heroes. Gandalf is probably the best,
but Legolas will end up with 1000+ kills by the end of the Campaign. Saurman
is good too, but Gandalf and the "Word of Mouth" power is ridiculous.

Anyway, I will give walkthrough's for the linear missions (mostly the ones with
Heroes in - I mean the Fellowship) and just general strategies for the LATER
Ancillary missions. Good luck.

STORYLINE MISSION

Objectives:-

Guide the Fellowship through the halls of Moria
Gandalf and Frodo must remain alive
Destroy the Balrog

Suggested Hero Formation:-

Aragorn - Upgrade 1
Gandalf - Upgrade 2 and 6
Legolas - Upgrade 3
Gimli   - Upgrade 4
Boromir - Upgrade 5
Hobbits

PURCHASE THE "HEAL" ABILITY ASAP!

Get your Heroes into formation by simply moving them forward up the stairs a
tiny bit then individually selecting the hero you want and right clicking to 
their place in the line. When they are all in line, select Aragorn and right
click on the sword icon in the little mini-screen with his info in. That'll
let him use his special feature whenever he wants. Do this with Gandalf too
but instead select "Wizard Blast". Legolas will want "Hawk Strike" equipped,
and Boromir, Gimli and the Hobbits have nothing to select apart from making
the Hobbits throw stones (one hit kills!).

Done? Good. Head up the stairs and Gandalf (voiced officially by the wonderful
voice of Sir Ian McKellen) will babble on many times during the mission - 
I don't think he ever says anything useful, but meh. Anyway, battling through
is pretty straight forward, just sit and watch as the weak Orc's (yeah, no
Uruk-hai yet) get torn apart by sword, axe, bow, staff and...stones... It's
very straight forward.

When you reach the first Veterancy Upgrade, let Aragorn nab it. To stop other
Party members from getting there first, hold them all back and let Legolas pick
them off from afar while Aragorn goes all crazy on them with his Blademaster
ability. Put Aragorn at the back of the pack now and let Gandalf go all crazy
with his Wizard Blast if need be. It's very straight forward. Anyway, if you
feel the Hobbits are too vulnerable when you see a troll, or when there is an
option to take some stairs to find the Veterancy Upgrade - leave them 
downstairs AFTER you clear the room.

Ah yes, Trolls. Make Legolas use his Hawk Strike to soften them up and maybe
Gandalfs' Lightening Sword, which is deadly. If need be, use Gimli's Leap
manouever to take it down too. Remember, let Gandalf get the second, Legolas
the third, Gimli the fourth and Boromir the 5. _IF_ Gandalf is leveling up
fast and you feel he has no need for the second Veterancy Upgrade, let 
Aragorn get it or even Legolas.

There will be times when there are MASSES of Orcs and maybe as many as 3 or 4
Trolls. Put Gandalf and Aragorn towards the front and use his Athelas skill
which heals all nearby Heroes, if need be. Remember, if any of your Heroes go
missing to just hit "O" and they will all be selected, so set a rendevous point
up. When you reach Balin's Tomb, things can get really heated. When you pass
that and the wall crumbles, more Trolls come, so be weary.

When you pass down the stairs, let Legolas take down the enemies above from 
afar, while the rest of them take out the Orc maggots. At the bottom of the
stairs comes the boss...a Balrog.

It's really easy, actually. Try to make the Balrog just walks into the spell
you cast (I find that Lightning Sword is the only spell that works), then run
off and keep running till you recharge. He only takes 4-5 hits before he
dies, so it's coo'. Also, if you are playing on easy - you lightweight, hah -
you CANNOT die. Thanks to CJ for that. If you run low on Health, use the
Heal power I told your to buy from the book of the Evenstar!

ANCILLARY MISSION 1


Objectives:-

Destroy all evil forces
Bonus -- Garrison the ruined towers with yeoman archers
Bonus -- Rank Eomer one level


Suggested Hero Formation:-

Eomer

OK, the first thing you should do is to run Eomer around and level him up to
Level 1 - quite easy, actually. Try to find an Orc Lair or something, destroy
the Uruk-hai attacking it and then the Orcs, then the Lair itself. This will
net you a LOT of experience, and a couple hundred recourses. While you are
doing this, build four farms. If you want, there is an Orc Lair south of your
Camp, so head South East and when you meet the river head West to find it.

Heading South-East leads you to a problem. Get a Battalion or two to follow
Eomer south and escort the peasants you just found to the camp. This will
net you about 8 unwanted Command Points. Send them to scout the map and to 
their deaths. You bastard. Anyway, when Eomer has levelled up, you should have
loads of recourses, so build an Archery and a Stable. What? Yeoman Archers are
crap! Well, just make two Battalions when you can afford them and send them
to the middle of the map - you may want to escort them. Send Eomer and a 
battalion or two along with them. Find the towers and send them in. Bonus 1
complete. Bonus 2 is now also complete.

Go back and destroy the Archery Range and build another farm. When you have
more recourses, build as many Rohirrim (horses Ĵ_Ĵ) as possible. Keep doing it
and defending your base until you have maxed out your Command Points. Well 
done. Remember the Orc Lair? Well, head back towards it and South down over the
river. Keep going and you may well just come across Lumber camps, so destroy
them and keep going South. Oh noes, the enemy camp.

With your 10 or so Battalions, this should be a breeze. Destroy all the 
surrounding Uruk-hai before starting to destroy the smaller buildings - quickly
destroy the Uruk-hai Pit before they call out re-inforcements. Destroy the
surrounding buildings before moving onto the Citadel. Take your time and let
Eomer deal the last few hits by pulling your army away to net him a bit more
experience!



Victory!

STORYLINE MISSION


Objectives:-

Move the Fellowship to Lothlorien
Build a barracks and train Elven Warriors
Prepare for an attack by Goblins and Cave Trolls
Destroy all Lumber Mills

Suggested Hero Formation:-

Keep the Hobbits protected behind the lines of the Archers. Put Gandalf on
front lines with Boromir, Aragorn and Gimli. Legolas grouped with Archers.

Right. I like this mission. You'll start with hordes of Orcs chasing you into
the forest city of Lothlorien, but a battalion of Elf Warriors will come to 
your aid. Destroy the hordes and move on. Remember to auto-set your special
attributes. Aragorn with Blademaster, Gandalf Wizard Blast, Legolas with Hawk
Strike, Hobbits on Stone Throwing...Getting ahead of myself here. Anyway,
halfway towards Lothlorien, some Orc Archers will attack from the West. You can
send the foot-soldiers up to deal with them, but Legolas and the Hobbits and
even the damn Elves can deal with them. Range is not a problem tonight!

Also, before crossing the bridge, heading east into Lothlorien, head WEST and
up a slight bank and destroy the Lumber Camp. Grab the "Treasure" and head into
Lothlorien. Group Merry or Pippin to Key 1 (select either and press CTRL+1) and
have them scour Lothlorien to find loads of Treasure chests, which contain 500
recourses each! Anyway, build the barracks and keep making as many Elf Warriors
as possible. Soon, word will come of Orcs and Trolls coming from the North 
West.

Quickly, grab the single battalion of Elf Warriors to the north and take them 
to destroy the two lumber camps at the North East and slightly North West of
the map - they're marked on the mini-map anyway, so...Bonus 1 completed.

Remember to put your Army as I told above and the first wave will be easy.
Keep the Hobbits way back as two or three swings from the Trolls with poles Ĵ_Ĵ
will finish them. Wave one is quite easy. Use any available projectiles you
have. Yes, that's right Gimli too. A couple of waves will come and if you
struggle, build a second Barracks slightly south and east of the original
Barracks.

When you are told to move Southwest, do so. Kill the hordes here and the Trolls
before you are told to move back up to the Northwest bridge. Destroy the
final wave with all you have got to end this slightly repetitive Ĵ_Ĵ mission.

Here's an unfinished brief one, for now. I will write up to where we are in
the game.

-

Frodo Baggins of the Shire inherited a Ring from  his great Uncle, Bilbo
Baggins. This Ring is actually the Ring of Power, created by the Dark Lord,
Sauron. Gandalf the Grey sends Frodo out on a journey originally to Rivendell
where the fate of the ring would be decided. The Nine Kings of Men, also known
as the Ringwraiths, or Nazgul, hunt down the four Hobbits that originally set
off.

They reach Bree, avoiding the Nazgul, and meet Strider, who is also known as
Aragorn. They then travel to Rivendell, and Frodo has a scare but Glorfindel
saves him. In Rivendell, Frodo recieves Mithril from his Uncle Bilbo, which
will later save his life, in Moria. The company recieves 3 new members: Gimli,
Legolas and Boromir. Gandalf finally meets up with the Fellowship and they
continue on to Mordor.

They are blocked by spells from their past ally Saruman who has joined forces
with Sauron to take over Middle-earth. They have no choice but to pass through
the Mines of Moria. When they get there, they find it is a Tomb and Orcs of
Mordor have invaded. They fight through and then Gandalf fights the Balrog, and
falls...

The Fellowship carry on though and reach Lothlorien where Frodo meets Galadriel
and recieves the Light...
