The Lord of the Rings Minecraft Mod Wiki

The Taurethrim blow-gunner is the chief ranged unit for the Taurethrim of the Far Harad jungle. They wield the Taurethrim Blowgun and fire regular darts. Unlike their warrior counterparts, they never wear helmets. 


These units will spawn in clearings in Far Harad Jungle, regardless of the light level. They spawn only atop grass blocks, and will never spawn underground.


These jungle snipers will wander around Taurethrim Clearings. When idle, they will speak to the player with their blowguns down. If hostile, they will raise their blowguns, then proceed to hurtle volleys of darts towards your direction. Like all other ranged NPCs, they try to keep distance between them and their target. They appear to fire at a faster rate when up close rather than at long range.


It is possible to hire a Taurethrim blowgunner starting at 50 coins and an alignment of +250. As with all units, the price of hiring will gradually decrease with increasing alignment.
