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.

Spawning[]

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.

Appearance[]

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.

Behaviour[]

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.

Drops[]

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.

Hiring[]

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

These primitive warriors may be nasty to the Dúnedain scum, but if you crush enough heads and earn some respect you will be greeted like a hero. However, if you are aligned with good, these warriors will most likely react by crushing your skull!
