Kings used to send for our smiths, and reward even the least skilful most richly. Fathers would beg us to take their sons as apprentices, and pay us handsomely, especially in food-supplies...

–An Unexpected Party, The Hobbit

Dwarven Smiths are NPCs that are to be found in the smithies of the Iron Hills. They have the ability to trade with the player, and from them a player can purchase various pieces of Dwarven equipment alongside other items as well as sell their belongings for a fine price. However, these fine works shall not be sold unless the player is well-regarded amongst the dwarves; the player must have positive one-hundred alignment with them to trade.

These smiths, along with their brethren in the Blue Mountains, are the only smiths capable of reforging mithril weapons and armour in exchange for silver coins, so they are incredibly valuable if you have such items.

Behaviour Edit

Smiths, usually remain within their Smithy, and similarly to all other trading NPCs, will not attack enemies or players unless provoked, at which stage they will attack with a Dwarven dagger.

Trading Edit

As mentioned above, to trade with these NPCs the player must gain positive one-hundred or higher Durin's Folk alignment.

They will sell primarily Dwarven equipment and Dwarven armour and will purchase materials required for their craft. These items include ingots of metals like iron, gold, silver, and bronze as well as coal and sticks.

Upon trading with a Dwarven Smith, the player earns the achievement "At Durin's Anvil".

Upon death, these NPCs will usually drop some Dwarf bones, silver coins, and some ingots or coal.
