Epic Battle: The Hornburg
|Level:||10 or higher|
|Cluster:||Battle for Helm's Deep|
The Hornburg, originally known as Súthburg, is a castle within Helm's Deep built by the people of Gondor to defend Aglarond. The Rohirrim would later occupy the castle, with their leader Helm Hammerhand sounding a great horn atop the castle before going out to battle his Dunlending enemies. The castle was attached to the north end of the Deeping Wall and was at the end of a road which ran to Helm's Dike.

|Walkthrough & Notes|
Basic Strategy (Solo/Duo)
The battleground this time around is akin to that of a simpler version of the Deeping Wall without the aid of rock drops. Instead, you are given a slightly damaged Medium Catapult. Fortunately, you will not have to worry about any enemy siege weapons, but rather keeping your allies in good shape. A good strategy to try is to switch everyone into Two-handed stance and prioritize Sappers. Though you can tend to multiple Soldiers at once, keeping the banners up is slightly more challenging.
The enemy will march towards the wall, meaning this will be your opportunity to order the Commanders and use the catapult. Prepare for the side objectives Bring Down the Siege Ladders and Repair the Portcullis.
The Hornburg is all that prevent the fall of Rohan. Aragorn stands defiant upon the rampart of the gatehouse.
The Hornburg is the final layer of Rohan's defences at Helm's Deep. If it falls, then all hope is lost.
