    I was wandering around a little south of Yew the other day and noticed a large, black, tagged object called a "fibrous plant" in a small clearing.

    Has this been there a long time? Anyone know what its purpose is? I can hover my mouse over it and mouse-over text appears, but can't target it and double-clicking does nothing.

    Thanks!

    Yuh ... I noticed several in Tram Yew. Fibrous plant sac or something like that. I'd be curious also.

    Is this a leftover from when Yew was swamplands? Or a harbinger of upcoming stuff?

    I saw this in Trammel too. I'll try to get a picture of it tonight and post, along w/ coordinates (unless Beer beats me to it!).

    there are more than one that I've seen - sort of scattered around.

    I won't be in-game until somewhere around 630-7PM Eastern, so feel free to 1-up me on this.

    Fibrous plant (PICS)

    These are links to Photobucket.

    Plant in question - 53 N, 58 38 W in Trammel Yew

    Radar pic - To get there, leave the main town by the W path until you come to a fallen log on the N side. Head due N almost to the other path shown in this snap.

    Second plant is at 44 18 N, 57 5 W
