[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.


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.


Wicked Dwarves will only trade with players who have at least +100.0 alignment with either Mordor, Angmar, Gundabad, 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".

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.



  • A fellow rogue!
  • A fellow rogue! Greetings, Person!
  • By my beard, someone who's not an Orc! Bless ye, lad!
  • Curse these Rakhâs! They stink like the pits of Khazad-dûm!
  • Many years I have been wandering, Person.
  • They exiled me for my deeds, so I went and joined the Goblins. Nasty creatures.
  • I may be an outcast, my friend, but aren't we all here?
  • I may be an outcast, but by my beard, I still know how to work good steel!
  • All the way from the East, to end up here? What an ill fate.
  • Wicked, they call me. If you'd been brought up over there, you'd have run away too, Person.
  • Aye, they call them Stiffbeards for good reason!
  • You need to work on that beard, Person.
  • What tidings do you bring? What news of the Seven Houses?
  • My beard is the envy of all Dwarves!
  • Do they still speak of me in Baraz-tûm?
  • Those Easterling ladies love my beard, aye! Ha! Ha!
  • I still dream of roaring fires, fresh ale, and ripe meat off the bone...
  • My smithcraft is finer than any of those cowards beneath the Mountain!


  • Do we serve the same master, Person?
  • All the way from the East, to end up here? What an ill fate.
  • You mistake me for a scavenger! I will not trade with one like you.
  • Ha! I do not sell my craft to any old rogue!
  • Where do your loyalties lie, Person?
  • Are you a Longbeard spy, perhaps?
  • They have sent men after me before. Why should I trust you?
  • Even I would not stoop so low as to trade with you!
  • By my beard! You think you are worthy of Dwarvish smithcraft?
  • I will not trade with you, Person. The Bosses would not allow it!
  • Why, you might be a spy out of Baraz-tûm! No trade.


  • Don't expect to get the better of me, you rowdy lad!
  • I'll cleave your miserable skull in twain!
  • Come on, lad! Show me what you've got!
  • Suffer the wrath of the Dwarves, Person!
  • Came you here only to be crushed?
  • Draw your last breath, Person!
  • Raaarrrgh!
  • I'll crush you like a rock, lad!
  • What were you thinking, picking a fight with me? Ha!
  • Khazâd ai-mênu!

  • Begone, tark filth!
  • Did they send you here to get me? Ha! Come on then!
  • Come on then, Person!
  • I'll toss your head back to the Red Mountains!
  • You're no match for a rogue like me!
  • Du Bekar! Du Bekar!
  • Aye lad, you're fighting for the wrong side!
  • Aye, let's get on with it then!
  • Exile has made me mighty!
  • I'm a Dwarf! Not some weakling Rukhs!
