'It looks as though you have strayed a little ways from home, Dwarf, and you want to learn about prospecting?

'Seems, then , that you have come to the right place.

'You want to speak with Binir the supplier here. He will be able to set you upon the path of prospecting.'


Prospectors mine ore-nodes to discover the raw materials hidden within. They are also adept at working the ore into ingots. Ore-nodes not only provide ore, but will often contain gems or other objects that are used by other professions. This collection profession is much-needed in Middle-earth.

Be careful! You will need to complete the correct recipes and deliver the correct items outlined in this quest.

You will need to execute the smelt copper and smelt tin recipes and deliver copper and tin ingots. Failing to do so will force you to obtain new raw materials or to restart the quest after a 24-hour delay.


Objective 1

  • Speak with Hatt in the crafting area
  • You should speak with Binir in the Frerin's Court Craft Hall to learn more about prospecting.

    Objective 2

  • Open the crate given to you by Hatt to collect two chunks of coppers and two chunks of tin ore
  • Ingredients for Prospectors are found in ore-nodes in the wild, sometimes in chests and purchased from suppliers. You can also find ingredients on the Auction Hall.

    Binir provided you with a crate full of ingredients that you can use to execute the prospector recipes. Open the crate to get the ingredients.

    Objective 3

  • Using the ingredients you received craft a copper ingot
  • Using the ingredients you received craft a tin ingot
  • Binir provided you with the ingredients necessary to create a copper ingot and a tin ingot.

    Objective 4

  • Bring the copper and tin ingots to Binir
  • The recipes are complete. Do not sale the copper and tin ingots! It is time to show your handiwork to your mentor, Binir.
