Mithril gloves are required in order to get the final treasure as it requires Sam to open a chest with a strong pull handle on it.
Minikit #1 (00:19):
Just before the first lava cross, there is a silver rock to blast (not black as the video says, d’oh) apart. Destroy it and the minikit is right behind it.
Minikit #2 (01:03):
Once you’ve cross the first lot of lava, you’ll need to use a rope to climb up as per the story path. Before you continue, climb up the Gollum wall and then hop up the falling rocks in the lavafall for the minikit.
Minikit #3 (01:29):
Once you block off the lava flow, a dig spot will appear where the lava was. Dig up a rock and then throw it at the vertical plank of wood off to the right. This will reveal the minikit.
Minikit #4 (01:51):
When you’re hanging over the lava after a part of the wall has collapsed, jump up into the opening now there to find an axe point to use. This will release the minikit, which will be sitting on a rock in the lava flow below.
Minikit #5 (02:12):
Continue on the path and you’ll see a target on the wall holding up coloured steps. Shoot it to release them and built them so you can reach the higher platform. The minikit is at the top.
Minikit #6 (02:45):
From the last minikit, you should be in front of a water point. Grab some water and put out the fire in front of the crawl hatch just up the back wall. Next, head into the hatch to find the minikit.
Minikit #7 (04:03):
By the entrance to the mountain, on the right, there is a morgul rock to destroy. This releases a steam-powered lift so that you can reach a higher platform for the minikit.
Minikit #8 (04:13):
Back down the mountain a little and just before the Gollum fight location, there is a hatch that you’ll crawl through, as per the story path. In front of this is a cliff with a small wooden handle to hang off of for the minikit.
Minikit #9 (04:22):
Once inside the mountain, near the entrance, there is a minikit floating above. Use the poles on the wall to jump up and reach it.
Minikit #10 (04:50):
Whilst running out of the mountain at the end, stay to the right and keep jumping. The minikit is floating just before you exit the mountain.
Treasure #1 – Trophy Shield (00:26):
Before you cross the first lava flow, there is a large rock near the cliff edge, destroy it. The bricks left behind can be built into a fishing point which can be used to retrieve the treasure.
Treasure #2 – Palantir Hat (03:21):
From minikit #6, keep heading right from the crawl hatch until you find a rock with a strong pull handle on it. Pull it apart for the treasure.
Treasure #3 – Magma Rock (04:30):
In the final section, while Frodo is fighting off Gollum and you’re playing as Sam, eventually you’ll come across a strong pull handled chest. The only way to open this as Sam is with Mithril gloves. Once open, the treasure is yours.
Blacksmith Design (03:52):
At the entrance to the mountain, just to the left of the doorway, there is an arrow point that will allow an elf to swing up to collect the design.
