What are sieges in Return to Moria?
Sieges serve as one of the main challenges in Return to Moria. When you are under siege, you'll be under attack from dangerous foes, such as goblins or orcs, who'll try to destroy you and your active campsite in-game. You'll most frequently encounter sieges during the night-time.
All of your building work, forging, and crafting will catch the attention of hostile forces, and you'll need to defend yourself from their assault if you want to survive. Thankfully, we've got some tips that will keep you from being wiped out by whatever lurks in the depths of Moria.
How do you survive a siege in Return to Moria?
One way in which you can ensure some level of safety during a siege is to secure your base by building walls around you. This will prevent enemies from gaining easy access to your base. Additionally, you can install a door for easy access, as goblins and orcs seemingly have no clue how to use a door.
To make sure your walls stay standing, you'll want to make sure you have a hammer in your loadout. You can use your hammer to repair your walls and buildings whenever they are damaged by hostile forces. Using your hammer will increase the longevity of your base's defences, and prevent your enemies from making it inside your base.
Also, you'll want to stock up on resources. This applies to basic materials like stone, metal fragments, wood, and iron. Make sure to stock up on all the resources you could possibly need, in case you need to quickly put together a spare weapon or shield, or make some repairs yourself.
On the topic of maintaining your resource stockpiles, you'll want to make sure that you're keeping on top of your food production, either through hunting or foraging. You might find yourself getting hungry during a siege, and nobody should ever fight on an empty stomach. Food can help you regenerate your health if you end up facing off against some goblins or orcs, which may help you turn the tide of the siege.
Lastly, make sure you secure your base when it turns to night. Make sure your doors are closed and be on the lookout, as sieges are most likely to start during the night. You'll have to prepare throughout the day to not get caught off-guard.
