The Iron Hills merchant is a type of Dwarf from the Iron Hills. They are travelling traders and will trade with any player who does not have a negative Durin's Folk alignment.

When attacked, the merchant will defend himself with a Dwarven dagger. When killed, the merchant may drop Dwarf bones, food, plates, or mugs.

Upon trading with an Iron Hills merchant, the player gains the achievement "Dwarven Treasures".

Behaviour[]

Iron Hills merchants are similar to the other travelling traders in that they will spawn in various biomes across Middle-earth, with the exception of their homeland, evil-infested biomes (i.e. Mordor), and desolated biomes (i.e. Dagorlad).

Biomes in which the merchant spawns (click to expand)

They will only stay for one Minecraft day (40 minutes), however, so players should make finding them a top priority when they arrive, especially since encountering one of these merchants is even rarer than encountering the Galadhrim wanderer. Like other Dwarves, the merchant will occasionally drink Dwarven Tonic and eat Dwarven foods.

Like the other good-aligned travelling traders, the Iron Hills merchant spawns with a group of normal dwarves around him.

Messages will appear in the chat to signal the merchant's arrival, the merchant's departure, a warning message one minute prior to when the merchant leaves, and a death message signifying that the merchant was killed and by whom.

Examples:

  • Róin son of Náli, the Iron Hills Merchanthas arrived nearby
  • Róin son of Náli, the Iron Hills Merchanthas left the area
  • <Róin son of Náli, the Iron Hills Merchant>I shall be leaving soon, but there is till time for a trade or two!
  • Róin son of Náli, the Iron Hills Merchantwas pummelled by Bolg, the Gundabad Orc Archer

Trading[]

These merchants offer all sorts of food (including cram), glowstone, Dwarven ale, Dwarven armour (including trimmed variants), equipment, and even the rare Dwarfwort plant. They will buy food, ingots, and coal from the player. Below is an example of a merchant's trading panel:

Speechbank[]

These wandering Dwarves spend their lives travelling the world and doing the odd trade with passers-by who have a coin or two. But be wary - if they see a foreign Orc on their travels, they won't hesitate to start a fight!

Friendly

  • As you can see, Person, my feet ache from this heavy load. Care you to buy something?

  • You have not lived until you have tasted cram, Person. Fortunately, I have some right here!
  • I can see your hunger in your eyes, Person. Are you after some of that sweet cram-bread?

Hostile

  • This is your last chance to get an excellent Dwarvish bargain!
  • I shall be leaving soon, but there is still time for a trade or two!
