Hello fellow players

I am requiring assistance

I have now played the titled adventure pack many times, with different decks and have not been able to conquer it... do you have any suggestions on the best way.

I play with 2 players , one deck currently dwarf (leadership tactics) and the other (lore/spirit)

any help is appreciated

Thanks

This mono tactics deck beats it pretty consistently solo:

Perhaps a similar tact?

I agree with the other comment about trying mono-tactics. With my regular decks (various mixes), always failed. With almost any set of mono-tactics, success. Less than satisfying if you are trying to campaign through the saga, but a win is nice after multiple losses.

This quest can be a nightmare. After face-checking it repeatedly I eventually learned you don't need to diversify.

Go straight defense (Beregond for sure, and some Blood of Numenor). Clear the Banks and the Approach by siege-questing, then clean up the board of enemiees allowing the Citadel to fall via undefended attacks. This puts you on Stage 4 (siege) and once you get through (if you haven't killed the Nazgul looking guy) you should still be siege-questing for the win.

Good luck!

Ditto Mono-Tactics for the win. Beregond with shield of Gondor, Boromir with Gondorian Fire, other player playing spirit to throw multiple copies of unexpected courage on Beregond. You could also play the easier variant and take some of the encounter cards out.
