Nomad merchants, are Travelling Traders from the Great Desert. They are allied with the nomads from Near Harad. These traders aren't bound to a specific structure.  


Nomad merchants will only attack upon provoking. They will attack you with a haradric dagger. They spawn with an escort of nomads and wear robes.

The Nomad Merchant spawns in the following biomes:


If you want to trade with a nomad merchant, you need at least neutral alignment with Near Harad.

Upon trading with them for the first time, you gain the achievement "Caravan of Curiosities".

  • I have travelled far across the sands, and all to bring you a good deal!
  • We merchants travel far and wide across all the lands of Harad.
  • Only we know the secret paths among the sands.
  • I hear your coins a-clinking, Person.
  • Treasures! Treasures from beyond the desert!
  • For you, Person, I give a good price!
  • I have a deal you cannot turn down, Person!
  • By Mulkhêr, I hunger for kebab... perhaps you have some to sell, Person?
  • All this travelling makes one thirsty!
  • Have you any food to sell, Person? We shall have need of food on our long roads across the sands.
  • I bring grand treasures from the far realms of Harad.
  • I bring goods and news from across the desert, Person.
  • You seem like the type who would know a good deal when you see one. I respect that.
  • Could I perhaps interest you in some of my wares?
  • Don't let the heat of day fool you, Person. The desert nights are just as perilous.
  • You don't seem like you're from around here.
  • I am always open to another trade. What are you looking for?
  • Competition drives better bargains, Person.
  • Bandits - those honourless thieves, they disgust me!
  • Ayûkaph-amâm is where I was born, and where I became the trader you see today.
  • I am one of the few who know the way across the desert to Ijdi-ilel.
  • I respect the competitive nature of those Gulfings.
  • I haven't met any of those Corsairs yet, but trade upon water sounds... fascinating.
  • I do love meeting new people.
  • The women of Bakrîzad always make someone like me feel welcome.
  • Someone at Izêm-ulzuz once tried to trade me a child for my wares... I refused, of course!
  • The Morwaith don't like haggling. Their trade is as uncultured as their prey.
  • I hate to admit it, but war is good for business.
  • Ijdi-ilel might be far, but weapons don't sell better anywhere else.
  • I want to travel by the Arênin once more, before I retire.
  • I'm staying clear from Bakrîzad until those so-called Mûmakil are gone.


  • Curse you and begone, Person, you are no friend of Harad!
  • I have half a mind to drag you into the burning sands with us!
  • Even I do not trade with filth like you!
  • I will not accept the tainted coins of Gondor and its allies!
  • Get away from my pockets!
  • I fear you will try to rob me! Begone, Person!
  • The trade is off, but you will pay!
  • The price for your crime is your life!
  • This is why we hire the guards! Help!
  • You're hired by those men from Bakrîzad, aren't you?
  • What, were the Corsairs not happy with their trade?
  • You must be after what I bought at Izêm-ulzuz. On your own head be it!
  • Unfortunately for you, I haven't sold all my weapons at Ijdi-ilel yet!


  • Hurry, Person! I shall be away upon my camel before long!
  • Other lands, other treasures, other deals await me!
  • We shall soon be journeying onward. Now is your last chance!
  • We do not wait around forever, my friends.
  • Onwards! Onwards we must go!
  • Come quickly, Person, for the desert roads are calling me!
  • The road to the East is long, and we can tarry no longer!
  • Last chance! If we do not strike a deal now, you may regret it forever!
