So is the best way to get a near-end-game ancient dwarf weapon to find an infused garnet somewhere then go run the Training Hall mission in the Dolven View in Moria? All the late Weaponsmith non-legendary weapons seem to only be Beleriand or Westernesse damage. This is just for Sarnur and I fully intend to throw it away afterward -- LOTRO shouldn't be pokemon.
As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he joined the Smaug The Dragon raid. Then he asked for leadership, looted the chest, assigned himself the 1st age Arkenstone and mailed it to an alt (Bilbo's a VIP so can mail from anywhere). They did some PvMP and an Epic Battle, then he apologized and gave the Arkenstone back. He kept the pony.
