Dalish crackers are a must for each and every Middle-earth party. They were added in Public Beta 29 and changed in Public Beta 30.

They come in 5 different colours: Red, blue, green, silver and gold. All colours work in the same way, and do not differ much in what items they contain or how much they cost.


There are two ways to get crackers: One is to purchase already sealed crackers from Dalish merchants. They may seem expensive, but the fun they impart is definitively worth the money. Besides, some of the treasures they hold may more than pay for the cost of the cracker. The other way to get them is crafting them on the Dalish crafting table, filling with your own stuff and sealing them yourself.


Unsealed crackers can be crafted since Public Beta 30. You need two pieces of paper, one piece of gunpowder, and one piece of dye according to the desired colour of the cracker. The "silver" cracker is crafted with white, the "golden" one with yellow dye.

Quite a precious filling.

You can fill your unsealed crackers with whatever you want. Specially named items make a nice surprise, but be aware: Pouches cannot be sealed in crackers as of Beta 31. Other treasures, however, are just fine to be sealed.

To fill it, just right-click the unsealed cracker to open the GUI, move up to three items of your choice into the slots, then seal it by clicking the "Seal Cracker" button. You can't seal empty crackers.

The player's name is displayed.

Once sealed, you can't change the contents any more. The cracker now displays "Sealed by player name" in the tooltips instead of "Sealed by Dalish toymakers".


To use a sealed cracker, put it into your hand, right-click and hold until it bursts open with a loud bang. The cracker will be replaced by the item(s) it contained.

When you open a cracker, you'll get one or more surprises. If your inventory is full, additional items land on the ground near you. Items will not be automatically sorted into your pouches. 100 toymaker crackers will yield an average of about 176 items when opened.

Contents of toymaker crackers[]

The following list shows which items you can get out of the toymaker crackers, and the average amount you'll get when you open 100 crackers. Keep in mind that you sometimes get more than one piece of a certain item per cracker or even two different items. Warning: If you don't want to spoil the surprise, leave the list collapsed.

Ideas for your own crackers[]

Here are some ideas, what you can put inside your own crackers:
Warning: If you've got your own ideas, leave the list collapsed.



The anglo-saxon gyfu-rune (= letter G) means "gift" or "generosity". Tolkien used those ᚱᚢᚾᛖᛋ for some texts in the initial drafts of "The Lord of the Rings", later on, he replaced them by cirth runes.

Generosity brings credit and honour, which support one's dignity;
it furnishes help and subsistence
to all broken men who are devoid of aught else.
