|Walkthrough & Notes|
The battle will begin with constant waves of enemies attacking either the left, the Hornburg side, or the right, the Glittering Cave side. The lack of siege weapons may discourage Engineers, but Rank 3 Engineers may take advantage of the crated materials to build some. They can use Barricades to slow the enemy's advance while firing a catapult or ballista. The banners will require your attention as they do not heal as Soldiers do. Typically, the Sappers will focus on one or two banners at a time. A Rank 3 Officer can have Commanders prioritize Sappers to make them easier to handle.
The last attack will be on the opposite side from when you began. If you have siege weapons set up, aim them accordingly. Overall, there's nothing terribly difficult about the battle itself other than the side objectives. For this, a partner is highly recommended.
Saruman's sorcery destroyed the Deeping Wall and has driven the disorganized, retreating Rohirrim into the Deeping-coomb.
