Battle for Middle Earth - Good Campaign - Eaves of Fangorn
Battle for Middle Earth - Good Campaign Map - Eaves of Fangorn
This is a hint/walkthrough post for Battle for Middle Earth. You can find an index of all our Battle for Middle Earth posts here.
There is an astonishing number of enemies on this map, and they come at you very quickly. Fortunately, very few are pikemen so you can trample multiple hordes on a single long run if you are careful with your Rohirrim's health and retreat them to a fountain to heal periodically.
You are not on a timer for any of the mission's objectives, but you can capture the Isengard camp before Eomer's forces become available if you rush about getting Ents and send them to attack. Target the buildings instead of the huge number of enemy units, and let the Ents trample them on the way.
None of the Ents or the four Rohirrim units you are given at the start of this mission will carry forward. Until Eomer arrives, you cannot build any troops, so be careful with what you have as the Rohirrim can trample most of the enemy on this map and are therefore very useful. You might as well just hold on for Eomer because only he and his units can gain experience from this mission and continue on.
Leave one Lumber Camp for last to give you time to find Merry and Pippin.
