    Befriending Critters Navigation Guide

    Navigation aid for Radagast's repeatables in Rhosgobel.
    Assumes access to swift travel and discovery of all involved stables.

    Use of Travel Maps and milestones can allow you to skip some stables!
    Hunters and Wardens may have additional skips available.
    Use those 20% mount speed boosts which the Hobbit Presents give you, because they speed up the stable horses as well.

    EDIT: added milestone suggestions, streamlined Lake Town/Tham Taerdol leg of route

    Anyone know where to find the Gloomglens badger? It doesn't appear on my map, and there's no quest guide arrow. Tried using tracking tomes, to no avail.

    Anyone else having issues with these quest not tracking properly in quest log. I did one successfully, then the second just stopped tracking. After much frustration i dropped the quest, big mistake, it goes on a daily cooldown. So I took a third, it was tracking then I ported and it mysteriously broke??

    Some of the creatures are hiding in 'Suspicious Stump', which you'll need to dismount and use, then whack the critter a bit to get it to go green, then feed it a treat to calm it down. The stump can be found using the Delete key for selecting next item, if it's eluding you.

    Others wander around in a little area and you have to chase them down.

    I have the same problem. Just going to wait until after the next patch to try again.

    It seems the track doesn't show on the map if you dont have Radagast's treats in your inventory.

    If your Map is bugged so that the quest target area is not showing up,
    uncheck that quest in the quest guide box in your Map, and then reselect it.

    Angry Fishing quests

    I was ok with going fishing for junk.. A kinnie & I tried at different spots in the map,... all the items came up pretty fast, EXCEPT that goddamn Ball of Gunk. That item wouldn't drop anywhere for any of us... wasted a whole hour trying for it. Even went back to low/starter areas... nothing.
    This morning I found your Bonus note... went to those coords (weird spot with obstacles for casting I must say).. and there when I'm casting my pole for the 3rd time, I fish out the Ball of Gunk..... stayed a while longer and yes, got a second one.

    How come that's the only freaking spot with a chance of dropping that?? WTH?! I'm never doing them again once I ran out of the items I stacked while suffering thru these. Another sucker-punch move imo... unless someone can say they got that item easily somewhere else.

    You just need fishing buff icon that says this part of Anduin could use some cleansing (or sth like that). There are several spots, and now with U24.1 they are marked on map
    I had more troubles with rusty mace than anything else but nowhere near an hour in buffed spot (I did it 3x so far, each time in different spot). Basically if you fish actual fishes you are in wrong spot...

    Thurallor: it kinda works weird for me. If I'm far from correct region (like not in Eriador for example if critter is there) then often quest guide doesn't work. Bur if I move closer it suddenly appear. I couldn't find Entwash one today (after patch) since I was looking in Entwash Vale and Fangorn whereas it was in Far Anorien. Arrow showed when I ported to MT...
    Quest guide worked for me so far though if I was in correct region. I guess it bugs sometimes.

    Thanks for your guide, it's helpful!
    I did full run on my hunter today following it.

    It took me 1.5 hour, so it's quite long. Probably it's possible to do it a bit quicker on hunter/warden, but on other classes it will be even longer.
    On the other hand you need 5 days to gather enough treats for all 30 places, so we can do it once per 5 days (unless you buy treats from someone, no one selling on my server so far though).
    I'm not sure proposed route can be better, it's not that important for hunter which has unlimited ports to each and every region.
    I found only 1 stable missing in it: Aldburg-> Ost Rimmon. There is no direct route, need to go to Minas Tirith first.
    Otherwise using festival horse in west Bree (on the way to Chetwood) and a horse by the stables in Rivendell (for High Moors) should save you a bit of time, these are teleports

    Of course we can use reputation ports if we earned them (like Galtrev, Aldburg, MT etc.), your guide don't use these which is ok.

    Thank you for coming up with a travel route for these quests. I tried to improve your route to minimize the time it takes to complete all quests by trying to efficiently use the travel maps that I have available. I don't think I have the best route, I might update it if I discover a faster route.

    The first location each paragraph is always the travel map I used, while the other locations are the stablemasters I used. Alternatively you could use the Glan Vraig map if you have access to the Ettenmoors and take the stablemaster to South Bree or Rivendell; or use a map to an allegiance hall, take the swift horse to Mordor, take the stablemaster to South Bree and go from there. The whole route took me about 1 hour 15 minutes to complete.

    Since you can only do one Befriending Critters quest per day (actually 1.4 if you do the gardening and eggs quests), it might as well be the quickest one.

    The rabbits and badgers require significantly less riding from the nearest swift-travel location than the others. The badgers win because two of them are in stumps, so you don't have to search for them.

    You can also farm 30 treats (on alts as well) first and then do all 6 quests at the same time, then send the tomes of knowledge to your main for example so you don't have to do 120 of those
