Unlockable Epic Movie Scenes
Complete the Quest or task below to Unlock the Epic movie Scenes
Once you get the Shadowcraft Elfstone, put it on Idrial. From there, get Crippling, followed by Fear. Maxing it out is not necessary but is fun. From there, go to Eregion and to that small little gully-like area that has a high build up rate for battles. Just wait for the battles, then kill all but one enemy. Have Idrial fear it, then just max out all the desired skills. Keep the enemy feared every time his face gets close to the top of the roster on the upper right-hand screen. You can even have everyone else retreat but her then just max out her skills using Drain Inspiration, and eventually Leech Inspiration, from her Swordcraft set. You can even maximize item crafting and Lightcraft Elfstones if desired. After she is maxed out, move the Shadowcraft Stone to another character. Get fear on that one and continue the same strategy.
Gaining new moves
When fighting groups of Orcs, use Elegost's Sleeping Arrows, after getting Elegost's passive skill that effects all foes with them. Then, use the Double Attack skill with Berethor and his three hit attack. Just before killing the last Orc, use everyone's Spirit skill to gain SP points. This will allow you to gain new moves that would normally take many fights to gain.
Do not use the normal attack. With Hadhod and Idrial use Spirit Powers. With Elegost, use Ranged Craft. With Berethor, use Sword Craft. With Morwen, use Thief Craft. With Eaoden, use Spear Craft. You will only get new skills if you use Spirit Powers, Sword Craft, Ranger Craft, Thief Craft, or Spear Craft. You will not get new skills by using the normal attack. When you get all skills in the crafts listed, use Axe Craft with Hadhod, Sword Craft with Idrial, Leadership with Berethor, Bow Craft with Elegost, and Dual-Axe Craft with Morwen. Eaoden may have two different kinds of skills. If he does, train the other. If he does not, change him with one of the five others.
Get some of the best skills very early in the game, just practice. In the first level, find an enemy respawn point near a save point. Once there, keep attacking until you run out of AP and save the game. Your AP should have refilled, as well as your health. Keep doing this, and after a few hours you will get the special move from Berethor that can hit an enemy five times in a row. Note: This works for all characters, and not just Berethor.
Evil mode weapons
A good way to get some very good weapons and armor is to start a new file and save it. Go to Evil mode and finish its levels (preferably the high level ones). When prompted for which file to save the items to, select your new file. When you load the game, equip the weapons and armor and it will make the game a lot easier.
Remove Idrial From Party
After beating Osgiliath, travel back there. Idrial will be removed from your party until you reach a save point near the end of the Pelennor Fields due to a glitch from the Osgiliath 'Save Idrial' quest. Developer's mistake or someone's sick idea of a joke? We may never know.
Good Starting Sword for Berethor
To replay the game starting with a very good sword for Berethor (the first character you start with), do the evil mode of Osgiliath on your first game and save it on your new game. By doing this, you will get the Sword Of Isildur, which has a 200+ damage rating. At the beginning of the game, you can give at least 2,000 damage points from a normal hit with this weapon.
