Some hobbits are notorious for being gossip-mongers, while others are extremely curious or excited at the prospect of a new letter from friends and relatives. Nosey Hobbits are always happy to see a representative of the Quick Post mail service, although those delivering the mail are seldom happy to see them.

The Evil Eye at the mini-map

Most usually Nosey Hobbits are Quest-failer NPCs. During the mail delivery quests, if a player carrying a bundle of mail gets too close to a Nosey Hobbit and is detected, the quest will fail.

While a player is carrying the bundle of mail, Nosey Hobbits appear as an eye icon on the mini-map radar, allowing the player to see their location and attempt to avoid them.
