|“||...yet in the tempering of steel alone of all crafts the Dwarves were never outmatched even by the Noldor, and in the making of mail of linked rings, which was first contrived by the smiths of Belegost, their work had no rival.||”|
–Of the Sindar, The Silmarillion
Blue Dwarven armour is a type of armour worn by the Dwarf soldiers of the Blue Mountains. It has a protection rating equivalent to that of the armour of their cousins in the Iron Hills and The Lonely Mountain, which is 17 (), but has a slightly different structure to it, slightly less durability, and is blue to reflect the mountains in which its makers reside.
Upon equipping a full suit of Blue Dwarven armour, the player earns the achievement "Warrior of Ered Luin".
Unlike their cousins' armour, the Blue Dwarven armour cannot be trimmed. The armour is crafted on a Blue Mountains crafting table using the standard recipes but with Blue Dwarven steel ingots. In the renewed version only, it is made using normal Dwarven steel instead.
