The Hedgebeast is a quest with an eponymous boss. Defeating this boss will unlock the Hedgehog Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Hedgebeast's HP (400) makes this a short quest and its strength multiplier (1.25) make this a trivial quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in less than two weeks. This quest is recommended for lower level (less than level 25) characters and smaller parties.


Hedgehogs are a funny group of animals. They are some of the most affectionate pets a Habiteer could own. But rumor has it, if you feed them milk after midnight, they grow quite irritable. And fifty times their size. And @InspectorCaracal did just that. Oops.


Defeat the Hedgebeast.

On Completion

Show/hide spoilers

Your party successfully calmed down the hedgehog! After shrinking down to a normal size, she hobbles away to her eggs. She returns squeaking and nudging some of her eggs along towards your party. Hopefully, these hedgehogs like milk better!
