Lazy Peons (quest)
4 (Requires 3)
Use the Foreman's Blackjack on 4 Lazy Peons when they're sleeping.
Cursed peons! They work hard gathering lumber from the trees of the valley, but they're always taking naps! I need someone to help keep the peons in line.
You look like the right <race> for my task. Here, you take this blackjack and use it on any lazy peons you find sleeping on the job. A good smack will get them right back to work! Return the blackjack when you're done.
Look for them underneath the trees in the valley. Lousy slacking peons...
No good lazy...
Eh? Do you have my blackjack? Did you catch any peons sleeping on the job?!
Good, good. Maybe they'll think twice before slacking next time! Thanks for the help!
The Lazy Peons are supposed to be cutting wood, but are lazing (obviously) around the large trees in the Valley of Trials. They go from sleeping, to cutting wood, back to the wood pile, cutting wood, and then sleeping again. It takes a minute or two for them to cycle through their activities, so if you come across them actually working, just wait a bit for them to take a nap and then whack them.
- Lazy Peon says: Ow! OK, I'll get back to work, <name>.
- Lazy Peon says: Sleepy... so sleepy...
- Lazy Peon says: OK boss, I get back to tree-hitting.
Lazy Peons can be found all over the Valley of Trials, both north and south of the Den. Look for the large trees, and they will be nearby. Here are specific coordinates where you can find some of them:
