Type Minigame Repeatable quest

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

Game mechanics[edit]





This minigame will not be listed in the quest log, though you still get a reward for helping Farmer Dirk. Approach a hog from the direction opposite the one you wish it to go and it will run directly away from you. Use this technique to drive them into the pen. You have to round up at least five hogs. Be careful when driving a hog along the pen on the outside, as it may also drive hogs already inside the pen back out. When five or more Prize-Winning Hogs are in the pen, a green arrow appears above Farmer Dirk's head, indicating that a reward can be collected from him.


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."


  • Even though Farmer Dirk says to bring a friend, this task can be performed without an ally.
  • This minigame is unavailable whenever Farmer Dirk is already inside the hog pen (before driving the hogs into it).
  • Sometimes a hog may return to the pen on its own.
  • Hogs may also wander back out of the pen by themselves.
  • There are no additional rewards for driving more than 5 hogs into the pen (e.g. players will not receive 50 gold for having 10 hogs in the pen).
