The Rivendell Smith is a trader found in the smithies of Rivendell.


Similarly to most trading NPCs, Rivendell smiths will mind their own business and will not attack the player unless provoked, regardless of alignment. If they are provoked, however, they will defend themselves using a sword.


Once your alignment is 100 or higher with the High Elves, the smith will consider trading with you. They sell the equipment and armour of Rivendell and will buy Mithril nuggets; string; lava buckets; various ores, gems, and ingots; sticks; and coal - the more valuable the material, the more they'll pay you for it.

Items Sold[]

Below is a table of values for each item that the player is available to purchase from this NPC. Use this table to find out if your smith is giving you a good deal or not. Each smith will not have every item listed for sale.

Upon buying an item from a Rivendell smith, the player earns the achievement "The Reforging".

  • Your presence is still young in my mind. You have not yet proven yourself to our kin.

  • I would rather die than give you any of these weapons!
  • You will have nothing from me but your doom, Person!
  • Leave or face the wrath of Imladris!
  • I will not allow you to taint my gleaming armour with your foul hands!

  • I shall not allow evil to taint these lands! Begone!
  • Begone or face the wrath of our kin!
