Quest:Epic Battle: The Glittering Caves
|Starts with||Automatic Quest Bestowal|
|Starts at||The Glittering Caves|
|Start Region||West Rohan|
|Quest Group||The Glittering Caves|
|Walkthrough & Notes|
This instance is arguably one of the more difficult to traverse due to the lack of a map and the terrain. Familiarize yourself with the routes and be prepared to backtrack in order to reach areas quickly. The first attack will begin on either the east (Gimli) or west (Gamling) side of the caves. Keep your Soldiers alive as much as possible and be prepared for the possible side objectives, Stalactites Over the Bridge and Bombs and Bats on the west or Spider Assault and Cave In on the east.
The second attack will be on the opposite side of the caves, and the battle will go more or less the same as the west side. Once you are called to the center, the enemy will begin to march towards your location. If you wait too long to get to the centre defensive points, you will be instantly defeated by enemy archers.
The last wave will march towards the center area of the caves. There will be more allied Soldiers per group but more enemies as well. Be prepared for the possible side objectives, Preparing the Charge and Civilian Defense.
With the destruction of the Wall, Gimli and Éomer now rally any they can find to hold the line and protect all huddled within.
Withstand the enemy waves and protect the civilians at the center of the Glittering Cave.
