Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth: New Troops and Mini-Games


It’s been a while since my last post for Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle Earth but there have been some great improvements to the game including 2 new troops and mini-games. The 2 new troops consist of 1 tactical troop, Enchanters, which aren’t currently trainable, and 1 wall troop, the Gates of Erebor for Dwarves, and Stone Shepherds for Elves. The mini-games are called For Glory and Stones of Remembrance. I love when new game play elements are added because it keeps the game fresh. Without further ado here are the details for each of these additions:

New Troops (Attack and Life rated in stars):

Name ATK Life Speed Load Might Upkeep
Enchanters 5 6 1200 10 100 30
Gates of Erebor 6 9 0 0 0 0
Stone Shepherds 6 9 0 0 0 0

The wall troops, Gates of Erebor and Stone Shepherds can be trained now as long as you meet the requirements. Just select your city wall and train them. Enchanters still aren’t trainable so you have to win them directly. But they are great troops and can add greatly to your strategy.

Stones of Remembrance is a memory mini-game that requires you to correctly select items in order to win prizes. The game was down for a few days after this update so I don’t know the frequency in which this particular game will appear.

Glory has been temporarily postponed but there was a brief moment when it was available. Glory is a tournament that allows you to use real-time buffs and defensive buffs in order to defend successfully against incoming attacks. It was pretty fun but had technical issues. I don’t know when it will be reinstated.

And here’s a list of the other additions/improvements the past couple of months:

  • Brand new Gear sets for Dwarves and Elves
  • Sage Tower updates for various new events
  • New Chapters for timed PvE campaigns
  • Alliance Armistice
    Can no longer re-join an Alliance you left until 72 hours have passed
    Can no longer attack or be attacked by an Alliance you left until 72 hours have passed
