Blackroot Vale Bowlords are the hiring NPCs of the Blackroot Vale. They are easily recognizable by their lack of helmet and the coin in their hand.

Spawning[]

Blackroot Vale Bowlords spawn within Blackroot Vale watchforts and fortresses, which spawn within Blackroot Vale.

Behaviour[]

As with most hiring NPCs, the Bowlords will not attack evil players or mobs, unless provoked. If that happens, they will start shooting at them with their Blackroot Bow.

Hiring[]

Upon reaching +150 alignment with Gondor, players can hire units in exchange for silver coins. Below are the price ranges and alignment requirements of each unit. Note that the price decreases as your alignment increases.
