Yeah that item is pretty prevalent. Plus, if you start a new game (with a different character) the collection items stack so you should be fine. The ones to take care on are the more unique items that you get from specific bosses/areas. They are the ones that screwed me.
I can't get the second collectible of the game to register. I pick up the short sword on the table and it still has the question mark in my log on the pause screen. Reloaded a dozen times. Hooray! Supposedly there are plenty of this item scattered about though, we'll see what happens when I run across the next one.
If they are different levels then, whatever you do, don't try and complete the game by joining someone on the last chapter (or having them join you). It will glitch up your game/progress and force you to start from scratch.
I lost my max level character this way and had to get two of my friends (at max level) to run me through the highest difficulty. I was level 1 and could barely damage anything. Only took a few hours, but still.......
Alright, thanks. We are all different levels (and I'm like 30 levels above them) so I think that is the problem. Going to have us all start new characters at LVL1 on Normal difficulty and try it again.
Did it on the first enemies on the very first level (after we were all levelled up) we just all took turns to hit them a bit (until the finishing prompt arrived) and then did a finishing move at the same time. Took us a few attempts to get the timing but that was pretty much all there was to it. It is notoriously glitchy though.
Do you remember how you unlocked "Strength of Our Alliance" in LOTR: War in the North? I tried for an hour tonight with two other people and we couldn't get it to work. They each got four "co-op kills" but I could never get the hit in at the same time for some reason so we never got the "group kill."
