The Taurethrim Smith is a trading NPC who spawns in his smithy and with whom you can trade.


As with the Mod's other smiths, the Taurethrim smith will stay within his smithy most of the time and only attack evil players or NPC's when provoked. If this happens, he will use his blacksmith hammer to defend himself.


If you wish to trade with the blacksmith, you will need at least +50 Taurethrim alignment. Once you have that, he will sell you equipment and armour, as well as buy the raw materials needed to make these items, such as coal, bronze, and obsidian.

Upon trading with a Taurethrim smith, the player earns the achievement "Obsidian Forge".

Taurethrim smiths are skilled metalworkers, if not quite so skilled as the Dwarves. They provide a valuable service and are found in every Taurethrim village. They are able to reforge Coast Southron, Harnedor, Corsair, Gulfen, and Taurethrim armour and weapons. They can also reforge Morwaith swords.
