Treasure Trove

The Treasure Trove has lots of items with helpful abilities. Try using these if you are stuck, or can’t afford a certain character.

Guide studs

If you are unsure of where to go in Middle-earth, try looking out for some guide studs, or swapping to other characters.

Throwing Gimli

Don’t forget, Gimli can be thrown to reach places he can’t normally reach.

Helpful objects

If you are stuck in a level, try destroying everything around you. That may reveal a helpful object. Don’t try this at home!

The blacksmith can make lots of useful items. Don’t forget to visit him regularly.

Map Stones

You can travel across Middle-earth by using the Map Stones. If you see one, don’t forget to activate it!

Check the map

Check the map regularly to see what secrets are hidden around.


Some characters have helpful items in their backpack, don’t forget to check.

Elves jump higher

Elves can jump higher than other characters. If you can’t quite reach something, try using an Elf.

Night time

Night time in Middle-earth can sometimes reveal secrets that aren’t present during the day.

Speed up

It’s a long walk to Mordor, perhaps some new shoes will speed up the journey.

Not just one quest

Not just one quest on the way to Mordor but many, keep an eye out for those in need of help in Middle earth.
