Type Minigame Repeatable quest

Get Farmer Dirk's Prize-Winning Hogs back into their pen.

Game mechanics[edit]





This is not put into the Quest Log but you still get a reward for helping Farmer Dirk. Start the action by talking to Dirk outside the hog pen. Approach a hog from the direction opposite the one you wish it to go and it will run directly away from you. Use that technique to push them into the pen. You only have to round up five of the ten hogs in order for Dirk to give you a reward. Even though Dirk says to bring a friend, this task can be performed by yourself.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Farmer Dirk

"My life is ruined! Some ruffians must have come around and let my prize-winning hogs out of their pen. I have been chasing after them all afternoon and am completely exhausted! If they wander too far, who knows what will happen to their poor, poor souls. You see, some of the wild creatures around these parts would make quite a feast out of my precious little babies. Perhaps you and a friend could help me out and get them back to safety?"

Reward dialogue[edit]

Farmer Dirk

"Why thank you! They are all back safe and sound. Let me know if you find out who did this."


  • Sometimes a hog will return to the pen on its own.
  • You will not be able to start this if Dirk is inside the hog pen.
