The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Dúnedain blacksmith is a trading NPC that spawns in Dúnedain smithies, with whom you can trade.


Like the Mod's other blacksmiths, the Dúnedain blacksmith will stay within his house or smithy most of the time, and only attack evil players or NPCs when provoked. If this happens, he will use a blacksmith hammer to defend himself.


If you wish to trade with the blacksmith, you will need at least +50 alignment. Once you have sufficient alignment, he will sell you iron and bronze equipment and Ranger armour. He will buy the raw materials needed to make these items, such as coal, iron, and bronze.

Upon trading with a Dúnedain blacksmith, the player earns the achievement "Ranging Arms".

In addition, this blacksmith can reforge the types of equipment he sells, for a small fee of cash.
