The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers FAQ/Walkthrough

3. How to play

Gems and Shrines
Gems are the currency of this game. Gems are frequently dropped by enemies and can be spent at shrines. Shrines are scattered throughout the levels and can be accessed by pressing the R shoulder button. At shrines you can sell your collected items, or purchase things.


Forge - Whetstones : Increases damage of your weapons.
Random Items : Buy a random item.
Shrine - Attribute Point : Buy an attribute point
Skill Point : Buy a skill point
Entwater - Ent Water : But Ent water, which will restore Pool a killed character without any penalties.

Liquid Pools
Throughout the game are scattered various pools of variously colored liquids that help your character.
Here is what they do:

Red - Fully restore your hit points
Blue- Fully restory your spirit points
White Pool 1 - Gives you an experience bonus
White Pool 2 - Gives you a temporary strength bonus

(White Pool #1 has a fancier design than White Pool #2)

Corruption (Eye of Sauron)
The Eye of Sauron in the upper righthand corner of the screen represents your character's amount of corruption. The larger the eye becomes, the tougher and stronger your enemies become. Creatures like Crebain (crows) and Goblin Drummers can alert Sauron to your presence, thus making the eye even bigger. If the eye begins to pulsate, Nazgul, or Ringwraiths will appear. They are tough enemies that will destroy lower level adventurers. To prevent this from happening, you can use these tips:

- If your corruption is too high and the enemies are too hard, wait a while and your corruption will fall.
- Kill all crows and drummers that your find. Legolas and Gandalf can hit crows even before they take flight.
- Don't wear items that reduce your purity.
- Increase skills that increase your resistance to corruption.
- Don't overuse skills that increase your corruption.
- Don't use the One Ring skill with Frodo too often.
- Don't overuse the higher level magic abilities of Gandalf.

In this game you can change the difficulty from the default normal to two others, Hard and Grueling. These can be changed in game by pressing select. When you change the difficulty the monsters become faster, hit harder, have more defense, and have more health. There are bonuses:

Experience gained (Out of 100%)

Normal: 100%
Hard: 120%
Grueling: 150%

I can't prove if or if not item drops improve with each difficulty. I highly doubt it though.

Stuck in a Level
If you are stuck in a level there are several things you can do you beat it. Here are some tips that can help you pass some of the harder levels. No level is impossible, because this game is pretty straightfoward. If you stand still, a flashing arrow will direct you and tell you where you need to go next. If you are stuck in a level then this could be your best chance. Here are some other hints:

- In outdoor levels there are usually paths which you can follow. More often then not (especially in the early levels), this paths will lead you directly to the end.
- If you are Gandalf and searching for the Balrog, his footprints act like a path. If you just generally follow the footprints you will find the end.
- When rocks fall in an area blocking a path a new path is created where there used to be rocks.
- In Moria, closed doors are always opened with a lever or a switch.

Even though this game is great and is very fun, it does have a fair amount of bugs and errors. While none are crippling, knowing some them can help prevent some problems with your characters. Other bugs (like the Overdraw and item throw bugs) can actually help your characters and be exploited to make the game easier.


The Whetstone Bug: after buying the final whetstone (for 12,000 gems), stat points can no longer be purchased from Shrines. Watch out for this one. You also can't buy Ent Water if you buy the last whetstone.The last whetstone is called the Mithril Whetstone.

The Secret Movie Save Bug: If you press select and save during the secret ending movie with the cave troll, the save file becomes "corrupted" and the character becomes stuck, which means his data is lost and must be restarted.

The Legolas Overdraw Bug: As Legolas, if you charge up your normal shot and hold the overdraw button, and release the normal shot, Legolas can walk around with a fully charged overdraw which can be released at any time.

The Nonexistent Weapon Throw Bug: Aragorn can use sword throw with no sword equipped. I'm pretty sure this works with Frodo, too. It looks pretty comical and can do some major damage.

The Item Duplication Bug: This bug works in many linked games, where one player sends an item to another but doesn't save his game. Voila.

Safe Spot from Balrog: There are a couple spots you can stand in during the Balrog fight that make you take 0 damage from the Balrog. Just an ordinary spot near the bottom of the room.

Disappearing Crow: There is one part in Amon Hen (the boat area after you go to the shrine) with Frodo, theres a crow that disappears and gives you corruption instantly, it's sitting on a wall near the bottom-right.

Strange ladder in Amon Hen - There is a strange ladder coming out of the ground... Like the ones from the Helm's Deep stages when you have to destroy them, except theres a ladder in Amon Hen... and its coming out of the ground!! You can destroy it and it will look like the ones at Helms Deep. Weird...

Pointless Gandalf Bug - (Lord Ragnoroks) When playing as Gandalf: In the level where you must fight and kill the Balrog, all you must do is kill him. But before Gandalf says his last lines in the level after the Balrog is dead, quickly press SELECT and save the game. Quit the game and load it again. You will start the Balrog level again. However, note that Gandalf is no longer grey. He will be white instead.

Rollback of Skill Points Bug - If you accumulate over 255 skill or attribute points (a very hard feat w/o using a cheating device), then the number will reset to 0. You may want to watch out for this one if you cheat, but I guess it serves you right... ;)

Funky-looking Characters - This bug has happened to many people (including myself), where the enemies will become different colored for some unknown reason. In my specific case, the Uruk-Hai became flashing white blobs. Hmmm... It doesn't seem to affect save data though, and the next time through the level they were back to normal, so this bug should be considered an oddity and not a risk.

** Questionable bugs **
Resist One Ring having no effect - Many people have complained that Frodo's passive Resist One Ring skill doesn't actually do anything. I'm not sure if it does NOTHING, but I would recommend putting in more than just a few points in before judging it.
