The Wood-elf smith is a trader that can be found in the smithies of the Woodland Realm.


Similar to most trading NPCs, Wood-elf smiths will mind their own business and will not attack the player unless directly provoked, regardless of the player's alignment. If they are provoked, however, they will defend themselves using a bow.


Once your alignment is +100 or higher with the Wood-elves of Mirkwood, the smith will consider trading with you. They sell the equipment, tools, and armour of the Wood-elves 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.

Upon trading with a Wood-elf smith, the player earns the achievement "Woodland Forge".

  • The foes of our kin shall tremble beneath the mighty blades that I forge!

  • If you wish to wield our mighty weapons, you will have to do more for our kin.
  • The Evil has returned.
  • You are not yet worthy enough to be entrusted with our bows and blades.
