Old Man locations
The Old Man moves around the map as much as you do, and you'll need to pin him down when you want to trade in a dish for the warm doublet, so here's where you can find him in the Great Plateau region.
#1 - Great Plateau
As soon as you leave the Shrine of Resurrection where you start the game, you'll be on the Great Plateau.
A small cutscene will show you the Old Man down the path to the right.
Walk down to find him sitting next to a campfire. This is where you'll find him hanging out in this part of the map.
#2 - Forest of Spirits
The Forest of Spirits is to the west of the first shrine.
As you approach, you'll spot a plume of smoke billowing from forest canopy.
The Old Man can be found at the bonfire and cooking pot spot at night, and hunting or chopping down trees nearby during the day.
#3 - Mount Hylia
This spot is actually more of a vantage point rather than an Old Man hangout.
There's a convenient path to the top of the peak.
The Old Man is at the top, admiring the view. Don't forget to check the rock next to him for some amber.
#4 - Old Man's Cabin
Far from being a nomadic hobo, the Old Man actually has an abode in the south of the region.
Head south from the Temple of Time and you'll spot it in no time.
At night, the Old Man will be sitting by the cooking pot outside. Otherwise he'll be wandering around, chopping down trees.
