wooded, heavily populated by wild animals and some fell beasts.
It also contains the river port of Kheledul, presently in control of
the Dourhand Dwarves, who are hostile to other groups.
Northwestern Ered Luin is made up of the href="http://lotro.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&ceid=394"> style="font-weight: bold;">Vale of the Thrain, a snowy
region with some ruins and wild beasts, and an area surrounding a large
(friendly) dwarven outpost Gondamon. In the southern portion of

Crafting Amenities (By Settlement)
Crafting in Ered Luin
Ered Luin supports all forms of crafting except for Farming. Of
course, this makes cooking more difficult, but you can find crops in
Falathlorn. No crops are found in northern Ered Luin.
Mining and Woodworking are both available. If it is nescessary to
get any particular equipment or supplies you cannot find, the best
place to check is Thorin's Hall, found north of Ered Luin past Thorin's
Gate, though this is costly because of the auction house prices.

area is not guarded by those of the Free Peoples, but instead
garrisoned by goblins.

class trainers, a banker, craft supply merchants, and, excepting a
farming crafter, all craft trainers. There is also a stables

Haudh Lin is a wild and dangerous portion of Ered Luin, inhabited by
many dangerous and aggressive animals and creatures. There are 2
friendly outposts here, the dwarven outpost of Gondamon and Thrasi's
hunting lodge. Thrasi's hunting lodge is not shown on the map
found by traveling there, but it is located at r1 lx526 ly1027
ox129.69 oy77.88 oz462.01 h181.4,
within easy sight of the main north south road in Ered Luin.
Aside from these marks of civilization, there are some ruins located in
the north eastern portion of Haudh Lin. The northernmost of these
ruins, Ringdale ( r1 lx508 ly1057 ox97.22 oy29.94 oz523.23 h16.9), is
another outpost of the hostile Dourhand dwarves, as an area to the east
of Ringdale, the Grimwater(r1 lx518 ly1064 ox124.18 oy0.37 oz483.16
h29.5). The final civilized area in Haudh Lin is Kheledul, a
river port located along the shore of the Lune, located due east of
Thrasi's hunting lodge. This area is occupied by the Dourhand
dwarves, and is very dangerous.

Vale of the Thrain
style="border: 2px solid ; width: 250px; height: 188px;" align="right">The
Vale of the Thrain is located west of Gondamon. It is rife with
bears, goblins, wild cats and vale prowlers. Vale prowlers are
the best way to find them (there is quest which has you hunt them) is
to simply move, stand still and turn in all directions for a few
moments (you are more likely to see enemies that are hidden if you are
looking their direction) and then move again. Expect to fight a
animals while doing this.
On the western side of the vale there is the ruin of Orodost, which
contains many goblins. Bring a friend for questing here if you
have any quests that bring you here. Finally, there is Hunter's
a hilly area found in the north east portion of the Vale of the
Thrain. All the bears that are located in the region of the vale
found here, and they are very numerous. Expect a lot of fighting
when you enter here.

Noglond is here, all the quests that are found relating to the Vale of
the Thrain are found href="http://lotro.tentonhammer.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&ceid=394">here.
