This is the first mission in the Good campaign. The difficulty level has no effect on whether or not you get the achievement, so if you have problems, try playing on Casual.

First you must defend the wall, this is easily enough done, just keep killing the enemies coming up the ladders. If you get a warning saying you are about to be overrun, start killing as fast as you can. Use special attacks like crazy at that point.

After the defense timer runs out, you'll have to jump down and defend the wall from torch bearers. This will be a bit easier as an archer as you won't have to chase them down quite as much.

Upon killing the final torch bearer, you are told to rally at the main gate. You can hit RB at the base of a ladder to climb it. Once you arrive, the gate will be broken and you will have to defend the area right in front of it. You don't have to stay in it however. You can actually push the enemies back down all the way to the base of the ramp and hold them there.

The next objective is to defend the thrown room from a sneak attack. In here there will be 4 enemies officers. These will be the hardest enemies you have faced so far. They tend to block a lot. If you are playing as a warrior, you can use the Flame of Fury attack (LB+B) to guard break. They are also less likely to guard if you attack from behind, yet somehow they still tend to on occasion. If your health gets low while fighting with them, kill some of the small fry until you find some health orbs.

Once that is complete, you'll be given the objective to retake the wall and a chance to play as Aragorn. Aragorn is a modified warrior with the only real changes that he is more powerful and his special attacks are a bit different. You will have to retake 2 points on the wall; they are right next to each other. To take an area, you must eliminate all enemies in the marked area then stand in it yourself. This can be a bit of a challenge as it is easy to get knocked off the wall. To clear out large groups of enemies from the zones, use your Crowdbreaker (LT+B). It'll use up all your energy, but it'll throw the enemies apart from each other making it easier to focus your attacks. Make sure and grab the health orbs enemies drop. Most likely you will be taking a lot of hits during this part.

After capturing both points, you'll be told to defend the break in the wall between the 2 points you just captured. Keep as few enemies as you can in the highlighted area. If you ever get the overrun warning retreat to the middle of the area and defeats the enemies in the center of the area. Your crowdbreaker is going to help greatly defeating these groups as well. Once this objective is complete, the stage is over.
