The Trophy-hunter of Cardolan Deed sees you track down wanted targets in the West and East of the region. You have to take something as proof of the deed; it could be something innocuous like a quiver, or a cut-off paw. Whichever delightful piece of evidence it is, I’ve given you information about each target, maplets of their location and also a complete deed map below. I hope you’re ready, because there are nine to track down!
How Does the Trophy-Hunter Deed Work?If you have done the Trophy-Hunter of Swanfleet Deed, then the Cardolan one works exactly the same.
Areas, Not Locations
While I have tried to be as accurate as possible with the deed maps for Trophy-hunter of Cardolan, the dots are still approximate. This is because the targets are wandering. They tend to stay within a certain radius, though, which is why I’ve put such large map markers in.
Trophy-Hunter of Cardolan Targets
Tarangarn is an Aurochs Bull of sorts. The field he is in also contains bulls and cows of the same type as him. Thankfully, with this kind of quest/deed, LOTRO usually makes your target bigger. And that is true of Tarangarn.
He can be found roughly South-East of Gaervarad.
If you have tailor crafting, this location is one of a few for picking up sturdy hides.
Approximate Coordinates53.3S, 52.2W
Quest ItemTarangarn’s Horn
I give full credit to the Wiki for helping me locate Turch!
Turch is a large boar that inhabits the ruins in the very East of Cardolan. I have yet to find a quest that brings you out here. But he can be found not far from Everstead.
Approximate Coordinates46.2S, 28.8W, but check the Wiki for other coordinates.
Quest ItemTurch’s Tusks
Nearby Trophy-Hunter TargetPenthúl
I almost-literally stumbled upon Skrizug, a goblin who was just scraping around the floor. I got distracted by him because LOTRO have made him really detailed and not just an out-of-the-box scale up of other goblins.
I think this is the only target for Trophy-hunter of Cardolan that does not wander. Or, if he does, I didn’t see it. For me, he was just North-West of Scurloc Farm, a bit off the main road that runs to Hove Farm.
Approximate Coordinates41.5S, 33.5W. @Hildegaladriel found him at 41.7S, 33.5W. Also check the Wiki for more places.
Quest ItemSkrizug’s Dagger
Nearby Trophy-hunter TargetAgerbráth
What I think happened was the Láthbear had not yet respawned from having recently been defeated. If that is true, then the respawn timer is about an hour long.
Where is Crúgaul?You should be able to find it in the northern part of the Southern Old Forest, in the area West of Sarch Vorn. I found it around 37.6S, 52.9W.
Quest ItemCrúgaul’s Claws
Sedgemead is a huge area in Cardolan, but it is in this part of the map that you’ll find the Orc Borhashat.
As with many of your targets, he is just wandering around. He might be a Trophy-hunter of Cardolan target, but if you ask me, he’s just shirking his duties elsewhere! Not that anyone’s asking me…oh well!
Approximate Coordinates49S, 34W
Quest ItemBorhashat’s Quiver
Nearby Trophy-hunter TargetCrúgaul
A few quests bring you to Nettinglade, a spider-infested part of the Southern Old Forest. It is here you’ll find Agerbráth, a huge spider-matron, walking around a concentration of webs.
Approximate Coordinates42.5S, 52.7W
Quest ItemAgerbrath’s Mandible
Nearby Trophy-Hunter TargetWithergrip
Again, it was pure chance that I first encountered Penthúl while just doing normal quests in Cardolan. Since then I keep hearing “pencil” but with a lisp. My brain is weird.
But not as weird as a Wight wearing fake wings. I mean, at least you can see Penthúl from quite a ways away! I am also pretty sure it loses an arm part way through the battle with it too.
It can be found in the South-West of Tyrn Gorthad.
Approximate Coordinates42.2S, 51.2W. While the Wiki does have other coordinates, they’re all around 42S, 51W and 42.5S, 52.0W
Quest ItemPenthúl’s Skull
Our final Trophy-hunter of Cardolan Deed target is Drugodech, who is a larger-than-average wolf.
You hack off its paw to take back to Gaerion. “Happy Birthday, Ranger!”.
Drugodech can be found wandering in roughly a circle on the higher hills of Ruddymore. He is just South-West of Wylvenclove.
Quest ItemDrugodech’s Paw
Suggested OrderThe order of the deed is not efficient, especially if you’re trying to clear it in one run. Here’s a suggested route, which starts at the Andrath Stable-master near to Sarch Vorn.

TL;DR Enjoy the Journey for the Trophy-hunter of Cardolan Deed
Many of the exploration-type deeds in Cardolan, and indeed Swanfleet, take you to far-flung edges of the map. I think this is by design as some targets may not even be near quest objectives. So, remember to enjoy the journey and take in the regions LOTRO have built in Before the Shadow.
I hope this guide to the Trophy-hunter of Cardolan Deed was helpful. More Before the Shadow goodness coming soon. Have fun in Middle-Earth, folks!
