Gandalf's weapons

Glamdring,Narya,Wizard Staff

Gandalf's equipment

It is unknown whether Gandalf required his staff to exercise certain powers. At times it appeared to focus or extend his powers, such as when it emanated light. Exactly how much it aided him in the use of magic is unknown, but Gríma Wormtongue tried to forbid Gandalf from bringing it into Edoras, clearly under the impression that without it Gandalf's power would be limited. When he arrived in Middle-earth, Gandalf received the Elven ring Narya from Círdan. It is clear that Gandalf wore this ring from that time to the end of the Third Age but how he used its powers is not known. In T.A. 2941, Gandalf acquired the Elven sword Glamdring from the treasure hoard of a band of trolls.He continued to wield this weapon throughout The Lord of the Rings, in particular during his fight with the Balrog in Moria. Throughout his time in Middle-earth Gandalf often was seen with a pipe, the use of which clearly brought him immense enjoyment.
