The Galadhrim wanderer is a trader NPC who comes from the land of Lothlórien. Unlike other traders such as bartenders or other traders, Galadhrim wanderers do not live in structures - instead, they wander Middle-earth, and the appearance of a Galadhrim wanderer nearby is a rare and exciting occasion. They can be easily distinguished from normal Galadhrim Elves by their dark green hood and cape bearing the golden leaf of Lothlórien. They can also spawn in their homeland.
Galadhrim wanderers wander around the world aimlessly while they are visiting. They do not seek out targets to attack as normal Galadhrim Elves do, but if they are attacked by something they will defend themselves using their dagger. After defeating a foe they will heal themselves by drinking Miruvor and eating Lembas. As of Public Beta 17 they are accompanied by a small company of Galadhrim Elves on their travels.
Although - like all Elves - the traders are strong and capable warriors, they may sometimes be overwhelmed by hordes of Orcs or other evil creatures. When a Galadhrim wanderer dies, their death is announced via message like a player's would be. If you wish to keep your Galadhrim wanderer safe without a doubt for the duration of their visit, it is recommended that you build a small structure for them to stay in.
Galadhrim wanderers can visit most regions of Middle-earth, including, but not limited to, the Shire, Gondor, Rohan, Fangorn, and the Iron Hills. Places they will not visit include evil-dominated areas such as the Misty Mountains and Mordor, as well as untraveled areas such as the Dead Marshes.
They can only spawn on grass blocks with enough air space above to fit in. When a trader arrives nearby, it is announced with a message.
Galadhrim wanderers stay in a region for 40 minutes and then continue on their journeys -- so if you want to trade with them, don't take too long in doing so! They will also announce their departure one minute before they are due to leave. Traders do not appear often: after one has gone, it may be as long as a few hours before another one comes visiting.
In order to trade with a Galadhrim wanderer your Galadhrim alignment must first be at least +75, or they will refuse to trade with you. Items they sell include Galadhrim and Mallorn equipment, Galadhrim armour, Mallorn wood and planks, flowers (such as Niphredil and Elanor) and other trinkets from their homeland of Lothlórien. They may also have some valuable food and drink, such as Miruvor or Lembas.
You may sell them various materials, such as iron ingots, string, and glass bottles, which they need for creating their Elvish products. They also seem to express an interest in acquiring the bones of evil creatures you have defeated - whether this is for growing trees, or simply as an assurance that you have played your part in ridding Middle-earth of evil, is a mystery.
Upon trading with a Galadhrim wanderer, the player earns the achievement "Gifts from Afar".

The Galadhrim, like most other factions, use trade in many ways. This trader wanders Middle-earth, with a small entourage, seeking friends with which he can trade. However, they will not trade with anyone, as any passing Orcs knew.
- Greetings from the land of Lothlórien, Person!
- The fruits of Lórien may be bought for silver coins.
- If you desire Elven crafts, I could exchange something for silver coins.
- Do you wish to trade, Person?
- The sea calls me home, but I value silver coins as much as the next merchant.
- Greetings, Person. Perhaps you have something to trade?
- I am an Elf of the Golden Wood.
- I shall soon be leaving these shores.
- I bring you the craftwork of the Elves of Lothlórien!
- Mê govannen, Person! Do you wish to trade with me?
- I have travelled far and wide... and now I come to you! I have many treasures that will interest you, Person.

- You are in the service of the Enemy!

- Begone, servant of evil!
- I should rather die than give you any of my goods!
- No evil hand may touch the precious tokens that I carry!
- My kin would rather perish than ally with the servants of the Nameless One!
