As this document is fairly large, I have put in a system of finding            
  things easily. At the right side of every heading I have put POW1, or POH2,
or POK3. These terms are explained in the document but just press CTRL + F and
type that code in, press enter and youíll get right to the bit youíre after.
Easy as that!

Introduction     FAQ1
----------------------

Hiya! Welcome to my first FAQ for gamefaqs.com. I thought I'd write an FAQ for
LOTR: Return of the King because it is my favourite game for the PS2 and I was
getting fed up of answering the same questions about the game (most of these
can be found in the frequently asked questions by the way) you are more than
welcome to print this guide out and use it for your personal use but you
mustn't sell it or claim any of it as your own. That's called plagarism and I
hate plagarisers. If you wish to host this guide on your site then again,
absolutely fine just email me. The address is mastergamgee_317@hotmail.com or I
have AIM. The screen name is Bilbo155015. OK, down to buisness.

take you directly to it. For example, if you wanted to find the walkthrough for
the King of the Dead level you'd press CTRL + F and paste the code "POK2" into
the window. Simple as that!!

Characters  CST1
------------------

In ROTK, there are 6 playable characters and three secret ones. Here are the
bios of the playable ones. These come from the instruction booklet.

Gandalf

Gandalf knows that depserate plans are required as the spectre of darkness
grows over Middle Earth and Sauron's armies issue forth from Mordor to destroy
the world of Men. The White Wizard liberates Rohan and the war is turned
towards Minas Tirith, the last great stronghold of the free people, where he
intends to distract Sauron's gaze with a final, bold defence. As and advisor of
Men, Gandalf musters the defence of Gondor to stand firm in the face of
darkness. As a warrior on the battlefield, Gandalf conjures shockwaves from his
staff to kncok enemies aside and then with his sword, he slays them with ease.
But victory cannot be won with forces of arms alone, and Gandalf's plans are
meant to buy time, knowing all hope rests in the success of Frodo's quest.

Aragorn

As the last descendant of the kings of Men, Aragorn is fated to claim the long
empty throne of Gondor, should he prove worthy of this task. But to fulfill his
destiny, Aragorn must first pass through the horrible Paths of the Dead to
attempt to command the foes that once betrayed Gondor. Then he must return to
Minas Tirith and fight Sauron's hoard in defence of the besieged city. And
should he survive this path, Aragorn must at last face The Dark Lord's servants
before the very gates of Mordor. As a ranger and Elf friend, Aragorn's ability
with the bow allows him to defeat opponents at long range. His true prowess
however, lies in close combat. Wielding a reforged Narsil, the legendary sword
that once defeated Sauron, Aragorn is a deadly combatant on the battlefield,
easily defeating multiple foes.

Legolas

Although the Fellowship that set out from Rivendell has been divided, still the
friendship that binds these combatants together holds true. In support of
Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli fight beside each other through hardship and peril,
despite thier differences. Yet their greatest challenges are yet to come, as
they enter this war alone and vastly outnumbered. As a fighter, Legolas' skill
with matched blades has won him the respect of his friends. But it is the bow
of Legolas that will often turn the tide of battle, his deadly accuracy often
stopping foes in their tracks. Legolas risks his immortality in the cause of
all free Men and he will not permit Aragorn or Gimli to go on without him - to
whatever end.

Gimli

As sturdy in spirit as he is in stature, Gimli he dwarf is a formidable
warrior. His skill with his weapons and his unflappable spirit earn for him a
strong and unlikely bond with Aragorn and Legolas. Despite the distrust between
Elf and Dwarf, all three of these warriors share a depp admiration for each
other, forged in the firs of combat. Armed with axes and the sheer force of his
will, Gimli can quickly defeat enemies nearly twice his size. His ferocity in
combat is a perfect compliment to the swordplay of Aragorn and the bow skill of
Legolas. Together these comapnions intend to become and irrestable force,
helping Gandalf turn the tide in their war against Sauron.

Frodo

In the final days of the War of the Ring, the fate of all Middle Earth rests in
the hands of Frodo Baggins. Now upon the most difficult psrt of his long
journey, Frodo and his trusted companion Sam at last approach the devastated
land of Mordor, home of The Dark Lord Sauron. With every step taken toward that
fell place the burden upon Frodo grows heavier. Relentlessly pursued by
Ringwraiths mounted upon huge flying beasts, Frodo and Sam must trust Gollum,
if they hope to find an encircling passage through the Orc forces. While huge
armies rage around them, these two small Hobbits must never falter, for failure
will bring about the ruin of the world.

Sam

Often the unlikely may become the greatest of heroes and Sam Gamgee is destined
to become the greatest heroe ever. Every step taken by a weary and worn Frodo
brings these two Hobbits closer to Mount Doom and the fullfilment of their
quest. Sam is always at Frodo's side, his unswerving loyalty and conviction of
heart giving them hope, despite the seeming impossibility of their task and the
odds of their success. Sam is a warrior created by necessity, dtermined,
ferocious and deadly despite his small size. His quick thinking and ability to
use stealth to his advantage must get him - and Frodo - out of some very tight
spots. Yet Sam's greatest strength is his love for his friend and his
commitment to see things through.

-------------------
Walkthrough   WLK1
-------------------

We finally get to the bit that's of use. The walkthrough. As we go through the
game, I will take the logical path. Starting with Gandalf's journey, then onto
Aragron and co and finally with Frodo and Sam's journey. The reason for this is
you can only complete Gandalf's quest wothout completing Aragron's so we'll
deal with Gandalf first and then with the important stuff. OK. So, to Gandalf's
quest.

------------------------
Path of The Wizard  POW0
------------------------

Gandalf's path is the easiest of the three paths available. His journey starts
with the tutorial level at Helms Deep and he travels to Isengard to deal with
Saruman and then goes on to fight at Minas Tirith in Gondor. So, without furthe
insane rambling's from yours truly, let's make a start!!

---------------------------------
Tutorial Level - Helms Deep  POW1
---------------------------------

This level is designed to give you time to practice Gandalf's controls and
develop your own style of fighting enemies with him. It's set at Helms Deep and
is almost impossible to die in. So, when you begin use the good olí speed
attack to dispose of the enemies that surround you. Some text appears above an
orc when theyíre dead. Pay close attention to Gimliís yells and the advice
given in the top right corner and you wonít have many problems. Continue
killing the rocs and Uruks and you should be shown a cut scene showing that
Legolas needs some help. So, head across the ladder, hewing away any enemies
that obstruct you.  NOTE: Some may have shields so use the fierce attack
(triangle) to break through them.

When you get to the ladder, one more shielded Uruk hai will fight you. Use the
fierce attack (triangle) and then the speed attack (X button) to kill him. Now
climb the ladder. When you reach the top, it starts raining arrows. Use the
square button to block them then shoot the archers using the range attack (L1
and X) Now, copy Legolas and climb down the rope using the R1 button to fall to
the ground below. Run through the enemies and go over to the cross bows and
press R1 next to all three of them to activate them. The third cross bow
destroy the cart with explosives on it and completes the tutorial level at
Helms Deep. Now, onto Isengard!

----------------------------
The Road To Isengard   POW2
----------------------------

We begin in a forest and this time, the Uruks are running away from you,
tempting as it may be, donít try hitting them because you canít. Thereís plenty
more Uruks to shoot in this level anyway. So, continue on and two Uruk Hai will
pop upto say hi. Reply with your sword and continue. After the short(ish)
cutscene continue and kill the next couple of uruks you see (remembering of
course to parry the shower of arrows that come from above) After the Uruks on
the ground have been dealt with, come back a bit and dispose of the archer
above you.

Carry on and stop when you see a cart with explosives on it. Back up out of
harms way and shoot it when an enemy comes past it. Now aim your ranged attack
and take out another archer positioned on the little hill. Now, look towards
the bridge and shoot the explosives. Now head towards the bridge and take out
the Uruks there. Continue on and kill any Uruks that get in your way. Pretty
soon you will reach a clearing so turn right when you do.

You now see a group of Ents doing a spot of Orc Squashing, fear not, itís your
turn in a minute. Run down the path and smash up the uruks waiting there. Now
look at the top right corner and youíll notice a metre has appeared. You now
have to kill 75 Uruks with the Ents. The easiest thing would be to simply
charge at them and commence hacking. But no! The Ents arenít that sharp and
will mistake you for an Orc so the safest way is to shoot the enemies with you
long ranged attacks. Not only does this kill them quicker it also keeps you out
of harms way.

After hitting the 75 mark, follow the path and youíll soon see the Tower of
Orthnac, the dwelling of Saruman. Ignoring the imposing sight of Orthanc,
continue on and shoot the cart youíll see with more explosives on it. Now carry
on and youíll be greeted by a volley of fire from the orcs positioned in each
of the towers. Look at the base of each tower (I think thereís 7 in total) and
youíll see some explosives.

Well, shoot each of the explosives to destroy each of the towers (remembering
of course to parry any arrows you can) When youíre sure every single explosive
cart is destroyed cross the bridge and turn left. Grab the elfstone for some XP
and then turn around and go to the right of the bridge.

Now continue on until you reach an area with and Ent whoís trying to break a
dam. There are a few Orcs who are shotting the Ent with arrows and, guarding
them is a Berseker. If you played Two Towers, you will know what a pain in the
*** these are. Kill this as quickly as you can with your long range attack
(charge it up for maximum effect)

Now dispose of the archers on the dock at the opposite side of the dam. Now,
you simply need to defend the Ent until he can break the dam. The golden rule
here is do not move from the Ents side.  So, keep a sharp eye out for any orcs
and good luck!

--------------------------------------
Minas Tirith - Top of the Wall   POW3
--------------------------------------

This level is not dis-similar to the first Helms Deep level in TT. The main
objective is to keep the fortress from being overrun by booting down all the
ladders.

Concentrate all your energy on this task and let the rest of the army deal with
the orcs. Only start killing orcs if the meter (that circular thing on the
right) goes red and the fortress is about to be overrun, otherwise, keep
knocking down the ladders.  You can see where a ladder is up by the red dot
appearing on the radar.

After a while, a cut scene will start where a Cave Troll and his mate are
pushing two towers to the fortress. Stop booting down ladders and head for the
stairs (the blue dot on the radar) At the top will be a catapult. When over the
circle, press the R1 and press it again when the catapult is loaded. You now
have destroyed one of the towers but another is on its way on the right side of
the fortress.

Nip back down the stairs and head to the flashing red dot on the radar. When
you get there, shoot the tower with a charged up range attack. Thereís another
tower approaching now though, this time on the left side. So, dash back to the
catapult and fire at the approaching tower.

A beast will now join the party so give it a few good shots with your ranged
attack and it should fall into the castle. Fire the catapult once more and then
run back downstairs.  Another tower is now on the right side of the fortress so
letís Ė damn! Rubble blocks your path.

Hmmm. Ok. Time for plan b methinks. Boot down the ladder; now climb down onto
the ledge using R1 and carry on until you can get back onto the main walkway.
Once back up here, head towards the tower and blast it with your ranged attack
a few times. Now, run left and up the tower you havenít been up yet. Grab the
elf stones and get back to the main walkway.  Go through the opening that was
previously guarded and follow the soldiers to the courtyard. Phew! Level
Complete!!

--------------------------------
Minas Tirith - Courtyard   POW4
--------------------------------

This level is a simple level in terms of what you have to do.  You have to give
200 citizens enough time to escape safely from the fortress. They will come
from two key points. From the right of the gate and the other is from where you
came from in the other level (the right) the escape point is in the bottom
left, near to where you are now. Anyways, commence hacking and hewing at orcs
until three trolls enter. Nip over to the pikes and skewer two of them. Now
kill the last with a charged up range attack or two. OK. This is where we start
getting a few problems. Champions will come barging in and a few more trolls
will come in every so often. The trolls should be taken care of first using
range attacks (if you canít get near the pikes quickly) or the pikes, or, even
better a combination of the two. Try to put your back against a wall or
something to avoid becoming trapped in a large group. If youíre low on health
thereís some health directly to the left of the main gate, in a red container.

CONGRATS! You have now completed the Path of the Wizard. We now go onto
Aragorn's path. The Path of the King.
------------------------
Path of the King   POK0
------------------------

Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli follow the same path (as they did in TTT) they start
by going through the paths of the dead and then onto Gondor to help with the
defences there, then they go onto the Balck Gate to fight a last batle with the
Motuh of Sauron. Their path is by no means an easy path and is the hardest
level in the game but it is not impossible. Let's go!

----------------------------
The Paths of the Dead   POK1
----------------------------

Follow the path and youíll come to some mist. This will slow your character
down so turn around and press L2 to jump through it. Continue on and soon some
spirits will zoom into a rock and bring some dead soldiers out for you to
fight. The best way to defeat them is to parry their attacks and then use speed
attacks. Get the health potion if you need and then carry on. Another rock will
come up and more enemies will appear. Use the pikes to kill some of them and
then use your speed attacks to finish the rest off.

After all are down, the stone will break and you can continue. Youíll come
across more mist so either run through it or jump through it. Whilst youíre in
the mist two soldiers attack. Dispose of them in the appropriate manner and
then carry on. As you continue youíll see a bridge. Stop as soon as you see it
and 2 archers appear. Kill them with arrows before you get too close to them
and then carry on. Before you go under the bridge, go left and up the ramp.
Cross the bridge the archers were on and then continue on, ignoring the other
path, which goes left.

Eventually youíll see part of the cliff, which goes out to the left. Go to it
and grab the elf stone for some more XP. Kill the soldiers, which attack you
and go on. When you see a boulder at the end of that path, push it over the
edge and kill the enemies that were waiting below for you. Now go back to where
the path split. Head down the other way now and some shielded enemies will
attack Use the fierce attack to break the shields and then the speed attacks to
kill them.

When theyíre down, go on and youíll see another misty area over the wall. There
may also be some archers on the cliff firing at you (it depends on the
difficulty) Assuming there are, shoot them and then use the switch on the right
to rise the drawbridge and give you access to the mist area. You will now be
attacked by another load of dead soldiers, when you kill one, smash the black
stone they come out of. This will ensure no more come from that area. Keep on
doing this till theyíre all down.

Exit the mist and youíll come across a ladder. Gimli will say something about
the place holding many surprises. Go to the ladder and dispose of the two
enemies at the foot of it and then climb up. Again, enemiesíll attack you. Kill
them and then one with a green life by will attack you. Continually use your
fierce attack on him and heíll eventually bite the dust.

Continue and (if you need it) grab some health from the right alcove. Go on
until you reach a room with a big statue at the end. Kill the enemies who come
and then use R1 on the statue and use the bridge thatís created to get to the
other side. Go left and start to turn the crank on the left. Now stop and deal
with the two enemies appear with health bars. Once theyíre gone, turn the crank
and it will open the gate. Run back around to the gate and go through it.

We now reach another huge chamber with a bridge going across it. Cross the
bridge and, when you get about halfway two rocks spring up and enemies start
attacking you. You now have to kill the amount of enemies shown in the top
right corner. Parry a lot and use your fierce and speed attacks to do so. When
you have, the rocks explode and you can continue. So, continue across the
bridge to complete this level.

-----------------------------
The King of the Dead   POK2
-----------------------------

We begin with a nice little boss battle between you and the King of the Dead
whom you must defeat in order to get the Dead Army to fulfil their oath and
fight with you. He looks intimidating but heís not really. He will appear near
to you, so run to him and block the three sword attacks he uses on you. Then
use as many speed attacks as you can. Continue this and eventually heíll
apparate to the back of the arena and summon four soldiers. Stay by the rocks
at the other end and wait for them to come to you. Use fierce attacks and then
press R2 to kill them when theyíre on the ground, then use a few speed attacks
on the last couple. He will then appear next to you so repeat the procedure of
blocking his attacks and then giving him some of your own.

He will then summon some archers. Use the big rock as cover and shoot all four
of them. He will then come to you. Repeat the strategy outlined above and heíll
then move over to his statue and blow some wind at you, which does damage if it
hits you. When heís blown the first wind, shoot him with an arrow and then run
and hide behind the big boulder, as the one you were hiding behind will break
soon. Continue the hide from wind; shoot arrows strategy until he comes to you.
This time he does five attacks.

After the five attacks, hit him and heíll summon some dead soldiers a couple of
times. After theyíre done with heíll move back to his statue so move back
behind the rock and heíll blow some wind at you. Do the same as before and keep
firing arrows at him in between the wind fire and when heís fired some more
wind at you heíll come to you. Repeat the same strategy as before and heíll be
a gonner in no time. This is where things get hard.

The mountain starts to collapse and you have to escape as fast as you can. Run
like hell from this point and use combos to kill enemies as fast as possible.
So, run across the bridge and follow the path till a rock appears and some
enemies appear. Use your combos to kill them and then carry on. Follow the path
and youíll eventually come to a bridge and have to fight more enemies. Again,
use combos and once theyíre all dead the rock will explode and you can
continue. Carry on and youíll eventually come across the other two companions.
Let them deal with most of the enemies and only attack them if they attack you.
Once theyíre dead, thatís it! Level complete.


------------------------
The Southern Gate   POK3
------------------------

The idea here is to fire all the catapults on the field and destroy the Mumaks
that the enemy has sent. So, head through the gate and youíll get stopped by a
Cave Troll, before it can attack, nip back and stab the creature with a pike
thatís in the ground. You will now be attacked by about 5000 enemies at once.
Parry a lot and donít worry about killing everyone just concern yourself with
getting to those catapults. Head to the left field and fire the catapults
there. You will now see a way in which you can climb onto the wall. Now, nip
left and fire the third catapult, which will hit the Cave Troll on top of the
wall. Now, go to the rubble and climb up the ladder to get onto the wall. Head
left and kill the two Uruks that attack you.

Carry on and kill the Cave Troll with a couple of well-aimed charged arrows.
Run over to where it was and a Mumak (big elephant) will appear. Shoot some
arrows at the three shields and then fire at the battle platform. Watch out for
the other enemies who will also be attacking whilst this is happening and the
orcs on top of the Mumak will be firing at you as well. Once the Mumak is down,
youíll see a crank, which you must use. First off though, deal with the Uruks
on the wall and then use the crank. Youíll now see a cut scene, which shows the
main gate opening. Run down the bridge and run through the gates to complete
this level.

The Black Gate   POK5
---------------------

COMING SOON!

---------------------------
Path of the Hobbits   POH0
---------------------------

This is the path of Frodo and Sam. This is the easiest journey to complete
because what you have to do is fairly simple and straight forward. What I like
about this quest is that you get to see the stronger side of both Hobbits which
I don't think is shown particularly well in the films. Anyway, you start off at
Osgilliath and go through to the Crack of Doom at the end of the game. So,
let's begin.

-----------------------------
Escape from Osgilliath   POH1
-----------------------------

The first time you play through the Hobbitís quest you can only play as Sam.
Once youíve completed it once you can then play as Frodo. So, head through the
alcove in the wall and kill the orcs that attack you. When you reach the bottom
of some stairs an orc archer will fire at you, deal with him by throwing a
knife at him and go on. A few orcs will fight you now so kill them with a few
parries and a speed attack or two and then carry on until a wall in front of
you explodes, this not only opens up a path for you but will also kill a few
nasty orcs *starts to sing. Burn baby burn! Also begins cackling evilly* ahem
where was I, ah yes! So, go through the opening in the wall and kill the two
orcs that attack you. Now face the rubble and kill the archer hiding behind it.
Now, kill two more orcs and run up
the ramp to the rooftops.

When youíre on the rooftops a Nazgul is flying around and a corruption meter
appears in the top right corner. This tells you how corrupted Frodo is
becoming. If it fills up, Frodo will be completely corrupted and give the ring
to the Nazgul so Iíd advise ignoring the orcs and just going straight to where
you need to be. Run to the stairs and kill the orcs that come down them and
attack. Now run up the stairs and shoot the two archers at the top (if you
canít shoot them then a couple of fierce attacks and the R2 button will do it)
Continue along the roof and watch a catapult squish some more orcs. Run over to
the ladder and climb down it.

Creep up on the two unsuspecting orcs and take them out with your ranged
attacks or fierce attacks if they come at you. Now continue down until you get
out into the opening again. Now, grab the health and kill all the orcs there
are (As there are a lot of them, parrying often is advised) When theyíre dad,
climb the next set of stairs and shoot the archers on the ramp. Once youíre up
the ramp, youíll find more orcs just waiting to be killed. Kill them and grab
the health by the archer if you need it. Now go through the gap in the wall and
climb the ladder.

Your corruption metre will now appear again as the Nazgul is flying about. So,
donít stop and fight all the orcs as they will either kill you or the Nazgul
will corrupt you so avoid enemies as much as possible. Run across to the bridge
and run through the enemies wherever possible. Shoot the archers and get under
cover to let the corruption metre go all the way down to empty. Now, run over
to the large hole and climb down the ladder. Kill the enemies and climb up the
ramp. Get behind the bell and push R1 to squish any remaining enemies down
there and make a way out for you!

Grab the health potion from the other side of the balcony then run back and out
into the opening. Kill the orcs and then go down the stairs and out into the
open. Again, the corruption metre will come up so ignore enemies wherever
possible. Continue across the rooftops and climb over the rubble into the next
area. Fight through the enemies to get to an archway. Climb down the ladder
(ignore the enemies, killing them all only wastes time and fills the corruption
meter) Ignore the few orcs that attack and go down into the sewers. Go on down
this path, killing the orcs as you go. As soon as you see a gate with archers
by it stop and take them out with knives. Now, use the elven cloak to sneak up
on the fat orc and press the R2 button to kill hi (believe me, itís much less
hassle than fighting him) but, if you want to fight him, hereís how. Parry his
first attacks and, when he pauses continually use the fierce attacks on him and
donít stop till heís down. The reason itís a lot of hassle is because he has a
nasty habit of parrying your attacks and it takes ages to kill him so I use the
elven cloak to sneak up on him and then stab him in the back.

Crack of Doom   POH4
---------------------

This level is a fairly easy level considering the rewards you get for it are
fantastic. You have to knock Gollum off the ledge and into the Crack of Doom.
You can only knock him off and none of your weapons will harm him, they can
still be useful though. The Fierce Attack will make him jump back and the to
the left. The Speed Attack makes him jump back and then right. Use this to your
advantage.

The way I found useful is to go to the edge (you canít fall off so donít worry)
and, when Gollum jumps at you, move out of the way and then corner him. Now use
the O buttons to knock him off. Heíll grab onto the ledge so use R2 to knock
him off. After the third time of doing this, lava will pour onto the platform
so stay on the edge to avoid being barbecued. Knock him off some more and the
platform crumbles and bits of it fall off. After the fifth time heís knocked
off rocks begin falling. Knock him off one more time and youíre done.

Well done! Youíve just completed the main part of the story.
