What Carried Arwen Off?

Here is a riddle for you. (Just so you know I did not make up this riddle but I made a few changes so it would fit on ME)
The hobbits in the story are Merry and Pippin.
What packed Arwen off?:
Aragorn already knew it was either a cave troll or an orc. Luckily, a hobbit of the Shire saw it happen and told Aragorn which it was.
