The Blue Mountains merchant is a type of Dwarf from the Blue Mountains biome. They are travelling traders and will trade with any player who does not have a negative Blue Mountains alignment.

When attacked, the merchant will defend himself with a Blue Dwarven dagger. When killed, the merchant may drop Dwarf bones, food, plates, or mugs.

Upon trading with a Blue Mountains merchant, the player gains the achievement "Wealth from Abroad".


Blue Mountains merchants are similar to Galadhrim wanderers in that they will spawn in various biomes across Middle-earth, with the exception of their homeland, evil-infested biomes (i.e. Mordor), and desolated biomes (i.e. Dagorlad). They will only stay for a Minecraft day, however, so players should make finding them a top priority when they arrive, especially since encountering one of these merchants is even rarer than encountering Galadhrim wanderers.

A message will appear in the chat to signal the merchant's arrival as well as the merchant's imminent departure. There will also be a warning message one minute prior to when the merchant leaves, and a death message signifying that the merchant was killed and by whom.


Blue Mountains merchants offer all sorts of food, Dwarven ale, Blue Dwarven armour and equipment, and even Dwarfwort. They will buy food, ingots, and coal from the player. Below is an example of a merchant's trading panel.
