The OSRS Sheep Herder has no skill and quest requirements, the quest itself is not very long and it is easy to complete. During the OSRS Sheep Herder quest, you will find out that some of the sheep in Ardougne have been infected with a plague. You will have to separate the sick sheep from the herd and kill them.
Then you will have to dispose of their remains to prevent the plague from spreading to the town. The people of Ardougne are counting on you to save them from the plague. Can you prove yourself as a hero by completing this very important task?
For the OSRS Sheep Herder quest, you will need to have 100 coins and maybe a few energy and stamina potions.
To start this OSRS Sheep Herder quest you must go to East Ardougne and talk to Councillor Halgrive located in the graveyard directly south of the church. He will tell you that a plague has spread across Western Ardougne and that four sheep have escaped from a local farm, causing a threat to the health and safety of the public.
Councillor Halgrive will tell you that he needs someone to herd the sheep into a safe place, where to kill them, and quickly dispose of the remains. Agree to help him and he will tell you that you will need some kind of protective clothing. Now you have to find Doctor Orbon who can give you a protective suit.
Halgrive will say that you can find Doctor Orbon in the chapel north of here. He will give you poisoned sheep feed because he believes that this way you will minimize the risk of airborne contamination, and it is more humane to the sheep.
Go inside the church and talk to Doctor Orbon and he will sell you the protective clothing for 100 coins. Agree to pay for the suit, and you should receive a plague jacket and plague trousers. Equip them, exit the church, follow the path west of the church, and run to the north.
Herding The Sheep Part From The OSRS Sheep Herder Quest
Exit Ardougne and north-west you will see the fenced-in enclosure, enter the gate on the west side of the enclosure. In the building you will see a red dot on your minimap, there you will find a cattleprod, pick it up from the ground and exit the enclosure.
Now you need to search for the sick sheep and prod them towards the enclosure. The red sheep is located north of the north bank in East Ardougne. Equip your cattleprod and use it on the sheep, stand behind the sick sheep and direct it towards the enclosure.
The sheep can return back to their initial locations if you wait too long to prod. Do this until all the sheep with different colored wool are in the enclosure. The locations for the other colored sheep are:
- Green sheep are north-east of the red sheep, directly north of a fenced-in area with chopped and fallen trees.
- Blue sheep are located north-west of the fenced-in enclosure with the incinerator, nearby a small camp with warrior women. Do not go too far, as there are also aggressive moss giants nearby.
- Yellow sheep are located south of the Fishing Guild.
Once all the sick sheep go inside the gate, use the poisoned sheep food to kill each sheep. Collect their bones and use them on the incinerator to burn the remains. Return to Councillor Halgrive and tell him you disposed of the four sheep. He will reimburse you the 100 coins you spent for the protective clothing in addition to 3,000 coins for your service.
