[Orcs] did not hate dwarves especially, no more than they hated everybody and everything, and particularly the orderly and prosperous; in some parts wicked dwarves had even made alliances with them.

–-The Hobbit, Over Hill and Under Hill

Wicked Dwarves are merchants found wandering the ashen wasteland of Mordor, the cold lands of Angmar and the sunny fields of Rhúdel. They spawn in a manner similar to Half-troll Scavengers and Dwarf Miners, and allow players aligned with the forces of Evil to acquire Dwarven materials and reforge their mithril tools, weapons, and armour.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

Wicked Dwarves will randomly spawn in small groups in Mordor, Angmar, and Rhúdel. They will despawn after being left alone for a period of time, similar to Dwarf Miners and Half-troll Scavengers. Some wear Dwarven Armour, while others are armourless; when not in combat, they carry Dwarven pickaxes. Unlike the majority of trading NPCs, Wicked Dwarves will attack enemy players on sight, using a dwarven sword, battleaxe, or warhammer.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Wicked Dwarves will only trade with players who have at least +100.0 alignment with either Mordor, Angmar, or Rhúdel. In addition, they will not trade with players with negative Mordor alignment.

Their wares, for the most part, consist of items you would see sold by any other dwarf, including weapons, tools, and various types of Dwarven building materials. Additionally, they sell Dwarven ale and tonic.

Upon trading with a Wicked Dwarf, the player will unlock the achievement "Alliance of Rogues".

Smithing[edit | edit source]

Wicked Dwarves are also capable of reforging and repairing weapons, armour and tools. Together with their brethren of the Blue Mountains and the Iron Hills, they are the only smiths with knowledge of how to work with Mithril weapons and armour - although they will only do so for a steep price.
