Ring Heroes

All maps in Skirmish and Multiplayer mode have Gollum cloaked on it. When you find Gollum, kill him and you will get the ring.

Take it back to your fortress and have the troop that is carrying the ring enter the fortress in order to recruit a Ring Hero for 9,000 resources. The Ring Hero does not use any command points.

Men, Elves, and Dwarves can recruit Galadriel. Mordor, Isengard, and Goblins can recruit Sauron. The easiest way to get the ring is to let an enemy find Gollum then kill them after they obtain the ring.

The only way to stop them before they reach their base is to chase them down with a mounted unit, have a created hero teleport into their path, or to summon allies into their path using a power.

General Strategy

Do not just rush your opponent's territory. Either send in a camo capable unit or a very cheap, weak unit such as Orc Warriers. Check out your opponent's base before attacking with stronger units. When attacking, use melee soldiers to attack buildings and use Bowmen and Cavalry on enemy units.

Defeating Large Groups of Enemies

Have a lot of defensive structures in your base and teleport the opponents to your base. The towers should kill the enemies before they can do much damage. The Convert spell will also work because they are free men.

Grey Havens

Have a lot of defensive structures in your base and teleport the opponents to your base. The towers should kill the enemies before they can do much damage. The Convert spell will also work because they are free men.
