Ori’s Muznakan Carvings are one of the many resources you can find while exploring Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria. These are scattered throughout the mines, and they can be challenging for you to track down.
You’ll discover the Muznakan of Ori’s Line shortly after you find your way into the starting camp when you complete the handful of starting tutorials in the game. Finding the smaller statues is a much bigger challenge. Here’s what you need to know about finding all of Ori’s Muznakan Carvings in Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria.
Where to Find All Ori’s Muznakan Carvings in Return to Moria
You will need to track down five of Ori’s Muznakan Carvings to complete the set. These items are scattered throughout the first area of Moria, which can take a good amount of time for you to locate and bring back to the start of your game. You can only find them in the starting mine area before you reach the Elven Quarter. If you’re searching for them in the Elven Quarter, you’ve gone too far in your Return to Moria playthrough, and need to make your way back to the start of the game.
It’s also important to note that the location of these carvings will have unique placements for every playthrough of your game, depending on the seed of your world. Although I can show you where I found mine, they likely won’t be the same locations for you, and you’ll have to track them down in different areas. The first one I found close to the entrance before I arrived at the Elven Quarter, in the Dwarven Ruins in Return to Moria.
The second Ori’s Muznakan Carving I found was inside a ruined house near a river, next to a Dwarven area with flower beds.
The third was discovered close to the swirling Shadows room, with darkness on the ground. In Return to Moria, standing in darkness can be dangerous, and you’ll want to avoid touching any of it whenever possible.
The next Ori’s Muznakan Carving I found was a bit more difficult. Rather than being in a ruined building, it was next to an ore pile in one of the larger hallways. I found it leaning against a rock in my Return to Moria playthrough.
The fifth and final Ori’s Muznakan Carving I had to find was much closer than I originally thought. It was near the start of the first camp, on the top of a wall. I had to create several platforms to reach it and then climb to the top to grab it, which means you might find it on other walls or hidden locations during your Return to Moria playthrough.
Now, return to the original starting point where you can turn in all of these carvings. When you do during your Return to Moria, you can unearth several rewards. There are several Gold Coins, Iron Ingots, a Sapphire, and two crafting schematics: a Trapper’s Hat and the Heirloom Shield.
