There is both an Elven and Human version of this trader. This page covers both.

Dorwinion Merchants are traders from Dorwinion.

They will trade with anyone who doesn't have negative Dorwinion alignment. You can recognize them from their festive coloured clothing and their Dyed Leather Hats.

Upon trading with a Dorwinion Merchant, the player earns the achievement "Wealth of Dorwinion"


Dorwinion Merchants spawn in many biomes, traveling Middle-earth to sell their wares. However, they do not spawn in their homeland (Dorwinion). 

When a trader arrives, it is best to seek them out immediately, as they leave after one minecraft day.

When a Merchant spawns, nearby players will get a chat message telling them of the merchant's arrival.  A message is also sent one minute before the merchant leaves, and if killed, the merchant will have a death message in the chat.

If attacked, a Dorwinion Elf Merchant will defend themselves, but will otherwise will stay neutral. However, the Dorwinion Merchant (Human) does not attack at all.


The merchant will trade with anyone who has positive alignment with Dorwinion. They sell various products from Dorwinion, including the native flowers, grapes, Dorwinion Brick, Dorwinion Armour, and of course, plenty of wine and grape juice. They will buy a variety of raw materials such as fruits, ingots, and wood. They also buy brewing essentials, such as buckets, barrels, mugs, and goblets. Like other traders, merchants will only buy a certain amount of items before they will stop accepting goods. After this happens there is a cool down time before they will buy again.
