Yeah, extra rough for them since Sting was the only sword that glowed blue around goblins, and that was only some of the time. At other times, Bilbo could be fighting a goblin and it doesn't glow at all. I'm guessing they knew that Glamdring was supposed to glow since it was also made by elves and the goblin king yelled something about it shining like the sun, but it didn't even get a blue tint in the regular version I saw.
