Hidden Threats Locations
- Respawn timers for your targets don’t seem to be too bad if someone beats you to the kill. As I was taking the shots, I looked back a few minutes later and the creatures had respawned.
- Locations are approximate as all targets wander. However, they wander the same route, meaning they’ll pass by the coordinates given.
1. Master of the Wildwood
Coordinates: 18.3S, 59.9W
A happier-looking “Wanted” target you’ll never see. Apparently even wargs are scared of him. Dinodas wouldn’t be of course. He is one of three targets in the very North-West corner of the Wildwood. The Elk that is, not Dinodas.
2. Lord of the Stone-Den
Coordinates: 24.6S, 60.6W
I’m not sure who at LOTRO chooses the order of items in deed log. But the next hidden threat in the list is on the opposite side of the map! Head up the hill South-East of the East-Delf.
3. Grand Old Wild-Tusk
Coordinates: 24.0S, 63.2W
If you take out the Lord of the Stone-Den first, then head directly West. Before you drop off the map and into the Brandywine you should be able to find our target. He or she is the humungous, scarred boar called Grand Old Wild-Tusk.
4. Hull the Wolf-Hearted
Coordinates: When not moving, he can be found crouched at 18.3S, 58.2W
I can almost believe him a hidden threat. He, at least, tried. When he’s on the move he is mostly in a crouching/sneaking pose. And when he is not, then he is behind a tree. Defeat him before he defeats you, as is the normal thing to do.
Coordinates: 21.5S, 56.2W
This exiled Goblin was apparently too much even for other goblins, which says a lot! While he wanders around the above coordinates, he is a bit out of the way. And you may find Azdág on the cliff-edge looking wistfully out, unaware (hopefully) that you’re going to exile him from, well, life.
6. Lagshal Bone-Cracker
Coordinates: 17.9S, 60.0W
It is bad that I get “Bone Crack-Away, Bone Crack-Away”2 in my head whenever I see this half-orc? Lagshal Bone-Cracker is found roughly North of the Master of the Wildwood.
Coordinates: 17.5S, 59.3W
Also straying not to far from the Master of the Wildwood is the orc Thraumak. There’s no such thing as a good orc, so do what you have to. Apparently he can cut a tree down in one chop. He doesn’t say how small the tree is, so you’re probably safe.
The reason this is marked with a down arrow on the map is because this target is underground. More specifically, Broghosh is deep within Writhenset mine.
Enter Writhenset from the East-Delf and keep going down and down (not to Goblin-Town). Once you reach some spider webs you’re on the right track. In fact, it always looks like you’re on a dead end, but most webs can be walked through. This eventually opens up at the bottom where a circular chambre is home to Broghosh and a number of other spiders. So be prepared to fight a few of them, unlike all the other targets who were conveniently alone!
Coordinates: 16.7S, 58.4W
If you’re still doing them in order, the Dulglok is way back in the North. May I suggest doing Drúhuk as that black Wolf is not far from Writhenset?
Coordinates: 23.4S, 62.3W
This terrifying black wolf with scary red eyes is the last of your targets. Even at night those eyes mean he cannot be fully concealed!
Hidden Threats of the Wildwood Deed Rewards
Once you’ve eliminated the enemies – and turned a blind eye to the fact that suspiciously similar enemies have since re-emerged, you’re awarded:
Yes, you get 2000VXP. Who would have thought such destructive acts were virtuous? I guess a hero may still be heroic despite weird questions over “what’s right” and “adventurer brutality”. I think way too much, sometimes!

The numbers marked on this map match the numerical order of both the actual deed and the numbers for each of the enemies above. Hopefully this makes it useful for you!
TL;DR May the Hidden Threats Remain Hidden No Longer!
And there you go, one more Wildwood Deed ticked off! It doesn’t form part of a larger deed, as far as I can tell, but you get to see all corners of the region and earn some LOTRO Points to boot. I hope you found this useful – if there are any other corrections you spot, please reach out to me on Twitter or Facebook. Enjoy Middle-Earth!
