    defeat yellowfang

    Just started this quest in the Old Forest and I must say I'm at a loss as to how to move about. It seems that I am unable to get to where I want to go. I've killed some of the other wolves and found yellowfang via the track ability at least to get a red marker on the minimap to show WHERE yllowfang is...but I am unable to get to that location. What am I doing wrong?

    You aren't doing anything wrong, you just have to follow the paths until you figure it out. He's there and you can get to him, or if you are super frustrated turn the graphic settings to super low and you'll be able to see where you are going much better.

    I'm trying to follow the paths but don't seem to be able to get where I need to be. I will try what you said about lowering the graphics setting and see if that helps,

    Ummm...I DID. As I said I couldn't seem to GO where it was showing it to be. But as the first poster said I will try lowering the graphics setting to see if that helps. Just won't have a chance to try it out until tomorrow night when I get home from work.

    Here's a decent map of The Old Forest if you wish to use one:

    http://www.thebrasse.com/maps/lotro-oldforest_rev2.jpg

    It's fairly up to date. I used it for a new alt a couple of months ago nad it seemed pretty accurate. (The Brasse left LOTRO several years ago, but kept the maps on the site.)

    Something to keep in mind with regards to LotRO's maps: they're representative, not accurate.

    What I mean is that the various terrain and landmarks are approximately located where the map indicates. So you can get into the vicinity, but might not have a clear, step-by-step, and obvious route to any given point.

    However the maps do not show every nook and cranny, all the walkable land, nor clearly indicates the end of usable terrain. This is particularly true for large scale maps. Generally, maps of a closer scale are more accurate, but some areas are designed to be confusing and/or misleading. The Old Forest and most of Moria (Dolven View, Foundations of Stone, Redhorn Lodes, etc) are of this latter type.

    With that said, you would be surprised how, with a bit of careful movement and a lot of repetition, you can quickly learn how to get through these areas.

    You should have seen it 6-7 years a go... It was truly scary to say the least.

    And you didn't have the detailed map you have now, just the Breeland area map. They never should have changed it, the Old Forest is supposed to be confusing and scary.

    And Moria is supposed to be dark and terrifying.

    But alas. . .
