The Rhudaur Hillman Axe-thrower is an NPC that spawns in Angmar, and is part of the Rhudaur Hillmen sub-faction. It is essentially the same as the Dunlending axe-thrower.


Like all Hillmen, Hillman axe-throwers spawn most commonly in Angmar, but they can also spawn in the Ettenmoors, Coldfells, or Lone-Lands. The also appear in invasions.


These Hillman axe-throwers use either bronze or iron throwing axes as weapons, and are equipped with a mix of Angmar armour, bone armour, and/or fur armour (they also may occasionally spawn without a helmet). In addition, they carry an Angmar shield on their backs, but that is for cosmetic purposes only.


Rhudaur axe-throwers will attack all enemies of Angmar without hesitation, which means players with negative Angmar alignment should be wary when near them. When they see a target, the axe-thrower will move to a suitable distance (if they are too close they will move away) before using their ranged weapons. They do not have a melee attack. However, players who fight them should be careful; their thrown axes deal a lot of damage, and they can be launched with considerable speed and accuracy, and a few of them can quickly kill even a well-equipped player.

When there are no enemies nearby, the axe-throwers will wander idly around their environment. These NPCs are capable of bestowing mini-quests.


When killed, Rhudaur axe-throwers have a chance of dropping bones, pouches, coins, food, worn equipment, or worn armour. If you slay one of these NPCs, you obtain -2 Angmar alignment.


Axe-throwers can be hired from Rhudaur Hillman chieftains for a price of 50 silver coins if the player has +200 alignment with Angmar.

Another hire-able version of this NPC is the axe-thrower mounted on an Angmar Warg, which can be hired for a price of 70 coins at +300 alignment.

Advantages Disadvantages
Can be hired in Lone-Lands and other nearby regions. Expensive for an axe thrower
Works well against swimming enemies Has mediocre armour with the same statistics as Rohirric armour
Well priced alignment wise
