Bestowal dialogue

'I am no fool. Even if Saruman's forces were a quarter of the size the scouts say they are, I know we cannot hold the Dike indefinitely. But we will make them fight for it, will we not? Aye, we will! Come with me and let us stand against the vanguard!'

To participate in the defence of Helm's Dike, open the Epic Battles Panel and select 'Helm's Dike' from the menu. After you successfully complete the defence, you will be returned to the location from which you entered it.

Background

Helm's Dike is under attack, and Gamling seeks your help in defending it from Saruman's forces.

Objective 1

  • Complete 'Helm's Dike' from the Epic Battles Panel

Gamling has asked for your help defending Helm's Dike.

To participate in the defence of Helm's Dike, open the Epic Battles Panel and select 'Helm's Dike' from the menu. After you successfully complete the defence, you will be returned to the location from which you entered it.

Objective 2

  • Talk to Gamling by the pile of straw near the western wall

It is after midnight at Helm's Deep.

Gamling is by the pile of straw on the lower level of the fortress, by the western wall.

Gamling: 'You fought well, my new friend, and claimed the lives of many foes! The Dike is filled with the bodies of Orcs, but still others come, clambering onto the bank. We slowed them. That is what we sought to do. It was foolhardy to expect to do more. Take the eastern stairs and climb onto the Deeping Wall, <name>. Your friends will be in the thick of the fighting before long, and they will want you by their side!'

Objective 3

  • Talk to Gimli on the Deeping Wall
  • Talk to Legolas on the Deeping Wall

It is after midnight at Helm's Deep.

Gimli and Legolas are on the Deeping Wall. Gamling told you to take the eastern stairs up onto the wall in order to reach them.

Gimli: 'It has begun, friend! Now is the time for battle! The Orcs fill the gorge before the wall. Just look at them down there! I have never seen so many of the foul creatures in one place. There are Dunlending wild-men down there too. Every now and then I can hear one of their war-cries over the rest of the tumult.
'We must stand and fight!'
Legolas: 'The time passed slowly here atop the wall when the noise from the Dike reached us. I saw the Orc torches go out when they sought to pass the breach, and then scatter when they met resistance. You fought at the Dike? That was well-done, <name>! It was a mere taste of what is to come on this night, but you and the men did what needed to be done: you taught our foes that we will not give them one foot more without battle.
'Now the battle is before the Deeping Wall, and it is a time for arrows and for stones! Gimli's axe thirsts for Orc-necks, but it will not thirst long!'

Objective 4

  • Talk to Aragorn on the Deeping Wall

It is after midnight at Helm's Deep.

Aragorn wishes to speak with you atop the Deeping Wall.

Gimli: 'Look at them down there! Ha! Come up here, you cowards!'
Legolas: 'Our foes are numerous, and now they are here. The next few hours will be trying indeed.'
Aragorn: 'We may have a problem, my friend.'
