Introduction
-------------------------------------

Hello! Welcome to the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Weapons FAQ version
1.02. This FAQ will show you the stats of all items, prefixes, and suffixes
in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers game for GBA.



How to use this FAQ
--------------------------------------

All items, prefixes, and suffixes are broken down into categories. The contents
of a category is listed down the side, with each of an items stats placed below
and off to the side.

Example:            Category 1
                    -------------
                    -Item 1
                              Stats1
                              Stats2
                    -Item 2
                              Stats1
                              Stats2
                      And so on...



A few terms you should be aware of
--------------------------------------

  2H- Two handed. This either means an item requires two hands to use
                  or will do bonus damage if used with two hands.

  Ice Damage- A magical form of damage that disregards all Armor for a direct hit.
              It does not always work or hit.

  Fire Damage- A magical form of damage that disregards all Armor for a direct hit.
               It does not always work or hit.

  Experience Gained- An increases in the rate at which you gain
                     experience points.

  Critical Hit- Does x2 the normal damage. Some Weapons, Prefixes, and Suffixes
                will incress you chance of getting a criticl hit.

  Weaponmaster- Does x3 the normal damage on a critical hit, insteed of x2.

          All other terms should be fairly straightforward.



'E' Item Glitch
--------------------------------------

At the end of an item their will appear an 'e'. It does absolutely nothing to the stats
of the item, but if sold, it fetches a price of over 2000 gems. If you receive an item
with the 'e' glitch, it is recommended that you duplicate it with the duplication glitch
(during multiplayer), then sell them to max out your gems.
