These Hillman axe-throwers use either bronze or iron throwing axes as weapons and are equipped with a mix of Angmar armour, bone armour, and/or Warg fur armour (they also may occasionally spawn without a helmet). In addition, they carry an Angmar shield on their backs, but that is for cosmetic purposes only.
Rhudaur axe-throwers will attack all enemies of Angmar without hesitation, which means players with negative Angmar alignment should be wary when near them. When they see a target, the axe-thrower will move to a suitable distance (if they are too close they will move away) before using their ranged weapons. They do not have a melee attack. However, players who fight them should be careful; their thrown axes deal a lot of damage, and they can be launched with considerable speed and accuracy, and a few of them can quickly kill even a well-equipped player.
When there are no enemies nearby, the axe-throwers will wander idly around their environment. These NPCs are capable of bestowing mini-quests.
Another hire-able version of this NPC is the axe-thrower mounted on an Angmar Warg, which can be hired for a price of 70 coins at +300 alignment.
|Can be hired in Lone-Lands and other nearby regions.||Expensive for an axe thrower|
|Works well against swimming enemies||Has mediocre armour with the same statistics as Rohirric armour|
|Well priced alignment wise|
