Stage: The King Of The Dead (Path Of The King)

Character(s) Available for this stage:
(1) Aragorn
(2) Legolas
(3) Gimli

Recommended Character (From best to worst in my opinion):
(1) Aragorn [Best for playing solo; co-op best with Legolas]
(2) Legolas [co-op best with Aragorn ]
(3) Gimli [Not recommended]
In this stage, everything from melees, range, speed to strength is quite important. Play as Aragorn if you're playing single player as his speed, attack speed, strength, melee and range are in the middle among the trio. If you're playing 2-Players co-op, use Legolas as 2P. Try not to use Gimli in this stage. My reason for the ranking the characters ability is below under 'gameplay hints'.

Gameplay hints: The King of the Dead is not that hard. You just need to parry him when he strikes you, and after he has attack you for 3 times, it is now your chance to hit him back with swift attack. After hitting for a while, he will strike back the same pattern so parry them again and after his 3 hits, repeatedly attack him again. This pattern goes on, till he will summon his army. Defeat his army of ghost, and he'll be back to attack you with the same pattern. After for a while, he will backout and command his "Wind Of The Mountain". Be sure to hide behind rocks, especially the one which has the range replacement item (White) because all other rocks can be destroyed except this. After he finish summoning one "Wind Of The Mountain", you can attack him with your range. These are the pattern you should look for.
After defeating The King Of The Dead, you have to just flee. And in the middle of the escape, you definitely have to take out the regular ghost troops. Just do the usual ways, and after that just keep running.
If you are playing 2-Players co-op, use Legolas as 2P. He's good to assist Aragorn especially in shooting down the bow & arrow troops that the King Of The Dead summon, and also the King Of The Dead himself particularly the part where he commands his "Wind Of The Mountain". Its best if 1 player concentrate on parrying while the other attacks The King Of The Dead when he strikes with his own sword. Also after killing The King Of The Dead, you'll have to flee from the place and Gimli is definitely quite slow so I would strongly disencourage people from using Gimly down here.
