Where Are the Smiths? | Lord of the Rings Online

As I try to catch up to my weekly playgroup, I realize just how boring Lothlorien is, even though is is gorgeous. Killing orcs in the tiniest area because there is nothing else to do. Moria was a grind, Lothlorien is a grind.
Please, just get me to Mirkwood already!
