What does this information mean?


  1. Speak with Madam Victra at Wanderlust Fair in Darklight Wood ( 243, -19, -2 ) /waypoint 243, -19, -2 to procure a hungry boarfiend.
  2. Return to Vornlin.
  3. Take the hungry boarfiend to Nightshadow Bog and kill Nightmarsh Fungusman to spawn shroomlings that the boarfiend will eat until he explodes.
    • If your boarfiend vanishes without updating, return to Madam Victra for a new boarfiend. #**Possible bug: The quest will not update even after gettina near boardfiend. If this occurs, delete the quest and pick it up again.
    • The quest will also only update if you are in the correct area (as shown by the RoI on the map).
  4. Return to Vornlin.


  • If you are having trouble getting the update, try killing the fungusmen one at a time. Killing them two or three at a time or being in combat when the boar explodes seems to mess up the quest, and you'll have to restart.
    • 7/8/2012: After having tried everything I've read online about how to get this update, I gave up on these tricks and received the update while killing swiftly (with a merc), while in combat, and after having gotten a new boar multiple times without deleting and restarting the quest. Just get a new boar and keep trying until you get the update.
    • 5/21/2015: The quest works! You MUST KILL 10 mushroom guys to get the update. Ensure you are in the correct area and single pull them to be sure.
    • 4/1/2018: Deleted the quest 3 times. On fourth attempt it worked. I only needed to kill 3 mushrooms when I got the update and I killed 2 of them with AoE. I got the update when I was stood at the POI loc of 350, -46, 260. (I had also just dinged lvl 15).
