Quest Text


The assault against the upper gatehouse has been unsuccessful for Saruman's armies. The small window openings only allow for small hooks and grapnels without space for attaching a ladder. The goblins have devised a plan to construct winches within the window openings for them to raise ladders; ladders which will allow for their brutal Uruk-hai companions to aid them in the slaughter.


  • Defeat the goblins constructing winches (0/8)
  • Do not allow healers and wounded Rohirrim to be defeated (0/6)

The goblins must not be allowed to construct any winches in the gatehouse windows, or the army will be able to raise ladders for a fast entry. The wounded Rohirrim that have retreated to within the walls will be easy targets once the enemy has secured an entry point.
