Battle for Middle Earth - Good Campaign - Lothlórien
Battle for Middle Earth - Good Campaign Map - Lothlórien (+50 Command, +1 Power)
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.
In this map, you will hopefully get either Gandalf, Aragorn, or both up to level 4 where their leadership passive power can be activated. To help you do so, leave the orc Lumber Mills for last.
Once any of the Fellowship crosses the western bridge into Lothlórien, the invasions start. So, instead cross over with the two squads of Elves you are initially provided and have them pick up all the chests of gold.
The orc Lumber Mills are a bonus objective that you must complete before the mission ends. In order to take your time with this, you need to NOT build any Barracks. This means you will have to defend against the invasions with what you are provided. They are more than enough -- What you have to watch out for is any of the Fellowship getting killed, which can happen if they get ganged up by trolls.
Once the invasions are over, because you haven't built any Barracks (a main objective), the mission will not end. Clear the Lumber Mills with whoever you want to level up the most, then build the barracks to finish the mission.
If you put the hobbits on ranged attack (switching out swords to throw rocks) and lump them together with the elves, you need to watch that they are not so far from the enemy that they stand idle because of the shorter range of their rock-throwing attack.
