Merchants of Harad are travelling traders from Near Harad. They will trade with any player who does not have a negative Near Harad alignment. They are recognizable by their robes, as well as the pouch they hold in one hand and the silver coin they hold in the other.

Upon trading with a Merchant of Harad, the player earns the achievement "Exotic Goods".


The behaviour of merchants of Harad is similar to that of Galadhrim traders and Blue Mountains merchants. This is because these merchants do not spawn in one specific biome, but rather wander across all sorts of biomes in Middle-earth. They will never, however, spawn in their homeland.  

These merchants do not remain in one place for long (they will stay for one Minecraft day). That is why the player should take the incentive to find them and trade with them once they arrive.

The player will get a chat message when a merchant of Harad arrives nearby, and also when they leave the area. There will also be a warning message one minute before the trader leaves and a death message for when he/she is killed.

The merchants will not attack until provoked, and when attacked, a merchant will defend himself with a Haradric dagger.


Merchants of Harad sell goods from the south. Southron products include Haradric equipment and armour, as well as araq, date palm wood, and bows of Harad. Far Harad products include gemsbok hide, lion meat, and rhino horns.

The merchants will buy from the player raw items, such as ingots, coal, food, buckets (sometimes filled with water), and mugs.
