The Shadow of the Beast is a long level 54 quest situated in the Olux Swamp.


The tales of the beast are seemingly true, as Dereg points the way for the player to hunt down the beast. On the journey, the player finds various pieces of evidence while helping some people, and ultimately confronts the beast itself.

Stage 1[]

» Talk to Dereg in his house.

 Location   Olux Swamp   X   -1483  Y   47  Z   -5218  Wynncraft Map 


  • Dereg: Hello there... What are you doing out this far in the swamp? It's pretty dangerous you know.
  • Dereg: You're from the Wynn province you say? In that case you must not have heard of the beast that found its way into the swamp.
  • Dereg: The people of Olux think it's another scam to be sold "Monster protective dust" but I know it's real. I've seen it!
  • Dereg: I don't have any proof, though. Or I'd march right into Olux and tell all those people how wrong they are!
  • Dereg: I saw him walking over toward Tolem's farm, he left a trail behind him, it was dripping blood out its mouth.
  • Dereg: If you could bring me back [3 Pieces Of Evidence] and they could be anything at all, I'll reward you! Follow the blood on the floor and see what you can find!

Stage 2[]

» Search for evidence that the beast exists by following the blood on the ground.


  • There is a lot of blood and destruction here... Perhaps the farmer can tell you more.

Stage 3[]

» Talk to the farmer to get evidence about the beast.


  • Tolem: Oh my, what am I going to do?! I can't afford to pay for all this!
  • Tolem: Ah! What do you want? This isn't a good time.
  • Tolem: Some monster has destroyed my cow pen and ruined my farm!
  • Tolem: It must have been truly powerful to knock down those fences... They were made of solid Marsh Robur!
  • Tolem: Unless you're here to help clean up this mess, you better leave.
  • Tolem: Oh... You're looking for proof of the beast? Well I can tell you it must be hairy or something, because I found a wad of stringy hair on one of the fences.
  • Tolem: You can have this hideous thing if you help me repair some of the damage.
  • Tolem: Some of my cows escaped, if you manage to bring back my [Three Missing Cows], I will happily give it to you.
  • Tolem: They can't have gotten far, try looking around the bridges nearby and in caves. Good luck!

Stage 4[]

» Bring back the three escaped cows near the two bridges and in the cave under the farm to Tolem.

Kill each escaped cow at each location and bring back their unique drops. Each cow has a different item.

 Location   Cow (Skin)   X   -1630  Y   52  Z   -5340  Wynncraft Map

 Location   Cow (Eye)   X   -1690  Y   48  Z   -5280  Wynncraft Map 


  • Tolem: Oh, You're back! Where are the cows?
  • Tolem: ...
  • Tolem: You're kidding, right?
  • Tolem: WHAT IS THIS?!
  • Tolem: ...
  • Tolem: As if I didn't have enough to worry about!
  • Tolem: Ugh. I don't even care about this hair...
  • Tolem: Well... I will only give it to you if you can bring me back [6 Marsh Robur], there is a Lumber Yard not far from here, just take the bridge to the south-west, behind me.
  • Tolem: At least I can repair my fence using it. And try not to bring back burned or broken wood, would you?

 Location   Olux Swamp   X   -1770  Y   55  Z   -5240  Wynncraft Map 


  • Tolem: Oh you're back again, did you manage to bring me back wood I can actually use?
  • Tolem: Great. At least my fence can be repaired, and I suppose I can sell the rest to pay for the cows you didn't return.
  • Tolem: Take this [Stringy Hair] and get out of my sight.
  • Tolem: No, I don't know who else might have seen it! Why don't you follow the footprints and find out yourself!

Stage 6[]

» Follow the footprints to find another victim of the beast.

 Location   Olux Swamp   X   -1583  Y   52  Z   -5440  Wynncraft Map 


  • Kroac: Look at this! Why oh why didn't I learn how to build!
  • Kroac: What on earth could have done this?! It must be the biggest beast in the swamp!
  • Kroac: Just look at what it left behind! This [Monster Toenail]!
  • Kroac: What? You want it? You Wynn folk sure are strange...
  • Kroac: Alright, perhaps we can strike a deal, young human. I can't afford to pay for the damage here. But maybe you can earn the materials for me.
  • Kroac: I need you to bring me back [32 Cobblestone] from Olux. Cobblestone is hard to come by in the swamp, so the merchants sell it for weird items.
  • Kroac: I'll be waiting for you here! Good luck!

Stage 7[]

» Go to Olux, buy 32 Cobblestone and bring it back to Kroac.

Kill the nagas in the nearby area just south-east of Kroac and collect 16 Naga Tails, which will be necessary in order to buy the 32 Cobblestone from the Cobblestone Merchant in Olux.


  • Kroac: So did you manage to get the cobblestone?
  • Kroac: Very nice, this should be enough to repair the damage and have some to spare!
  • Kroac: You can have the filthy nail! It's from no beast I've ever seen! Doubt you'd be able to sell it for a single emerald lad!
  • Kroac: I haven't got a clue where the beast is now... But I'm sure if you continue to follow those footprints you would't have any problems in finding it. Not that you would want to...

Stage 8[]

» Follow the footprints to find another victim of the beast.

  • Rileen: Wah! H-Human! Get away, there's nothing you can help with here!
  • Rileen: All your type does is break and hurt! You have more in common with the giant there than any of us!
  • Rileen: Aah, there's so many people hurt already, don't make it worse, please!
  • Rileen: We don't even have any medicine...
  • Rileen: Ugh, think Rileen! you have the herbs, what else goes into those poultices...
  • Rileen: Oh, right! Fish oil...but I don't have a rod, gah!
  • Rileen: There's no way I can get [10 Salmon Oil], even if that pong out back is teeming with fish...

  • Rileen: ...
  • Rileen: That took me six weeks to capture. And you have slain it in a matter of seconds.
  • Rileen: I'm a little annoyed. But also impressed. I'll tell you where the creature is hiding.
  • Rileen: It's in a cave not too far from here. I have marked out the way with candles. Follow them into the cave, and may the god of the swamp watch over you.

Stage 10[]

» Follow the candles and enter in the beast's cave.

 Location   Olux Swamp   X   -1384  Y   45  Z   -5529  Wynncraft Map 

Stage 11[]

» Go deeper into the cave.

Spoiler alert: The hidden text contains spoilers relating to The color-coded door.
To open the door with the color code, you must count the number of wool four of the colored mobs drop and press the buttons in that order and color:
  • 1 Wool - Pink Zombie
  • 2 Wool - Light Blue Zombie
  • 3 Wool - Green Zombie
  • 4 Wool - Yellow Zombie

Hence, the order is: pink, light-blue, green, yellow



Stage 12[]

» Kill the beast and return to Dereg with the three pieces of evidence of the beast's existence.

 X   -1483  Y   47  Z   -5218  Wynncraft Map 


  • Dereg: Oh... You made it!
  • Dereg: What? You actually found the beast?!
  • Dereg: Interesting... You found a nail... Some hair and... A piece of bone?
  • Dereg: You killed it?! Why would you do such a thing?
  • Dereg: ...
  • Dereg: Wow, a giant. I've only ever heard about one other giant, from your homeland, Wynn, and I heard it's one of the rarest creatures ever!
  • Dereg: This specimen belongs in Llevigars museum! I have to pay you for your work of course, but here take these crushed bones. I'm sure the museum won't want them. Who knows, you might find it useful!
