A Farmer's Plight is a side quest in Pillars of Eternity.

You get it from Rumbald in Dyrford Village. He asks you to kill an ogre.

Quick Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Talk to Rumbald in Dyrford
  2. Optional: Talk to Trygil
  3. Go to the cave in the east part of Dyrford Crossing
  4. Find the Ogre in the right part of the cave.
  5. Deal with the Ogre
  6. Go back to Rumbald/Rumbald's Wife.

Dealing with Korgrak[edit | edit source]

Korgrak is very temperamental, and many dialogue options will result in him attacking you. In order to resolve the conflict peacefully, you must ask him why he's living in the cave, then tell him it's dangerous, and even if you are killed, more attention will be brought on the ogre. You can convince him to leave, kill Korgrak, or you can hire him in your stronghold. This will unlock him as a hireling.

Rumbald will not be happy if you deal with the ogre peacefully, only giving you a Piglet for your trouble. If you reimburse him for the cost of his herd (400 coppers (cp)), he will be much happier, and give you his blunderbuss.

If you do get in a fight with Korgrak, be very careful about who goes into melee; the ogre does massive amounts of damage. Try taking advantage of his low reflex and will defenses to incapacitate him, or charm/dominate some of his bears to take the blows for you.

In the Journal[edit | edit source]

Id Description
10000 Rumbald, a pig farmer in Dyrford, told me that an ogre made off with his herd. He wants the ogre dead, and he wants me to bring him its head.
10001 Rumbald mentioned that the ogre has been spotted around Dyrford, but he wasn't sure exactly where it dwells.
10005 Now that I've dealt with the ogre, I can return to Dyrford and Farmer Rumbald.
10007 I found a cave east of the Bael River. It smells like corpse rot. Something hungry must live here.
20007 Rumbald informed me that Trygil might know the whereabouts of this ogre. His shop is in front of a half-collapsed tower.
20008 Trygil told me the ogre most likely resides near the Bael River, east of Dyrford village.
20009 I killed Korgrak. Rumbald will be pleased to see the beast's head.
20010 Korgrak promised to leave town. That should be enough for Rumbald.
20011 I told Korgrak he could stay in Dyrford if he could learn to avoid drawing attention to himself. He seemed to take to the idea
20012 Korgrak seemed pleased with my suggestion that he kill Rumbald. I'm not sure what I'll find back in Dyrford, to be honest.
20013 I offered Korgrak a position at my stronghold. He seemed interested in the idea - I could probably hire him if I really wanted to.
30000 I killed the ogre and brought its head to Rumbald. The farmer was so grateful for my help that he gave me his blunderbuss, Lead Spitter, and a piglet of my own.
30001 Rumbald was disappointed that I hadn't killed the ogre, but he gave me one of his piglets anyway.
30002 I gave Rumbald some money to help him replace what the ogre stole. He was so grateful that he gave me his blunderbuss, Lead Spitter, and a piglet of my own.
30003 I told Korgrak that Dyrford would be a lot safer for him if he got rid of the farmer who was shouting for his head. Sure enough, when I returned to the village, Rumbald's wife told me he'd been killed by the ogre.
