The Sneaky Squirrel's HP (700) makes this a medium length quest and its strength multiplier (2) make this a medium difficulty quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in between two and three weeks.
You wake up and find you’ve overslept! Why didn’t your alarm go off? … How did an acorn get stuck in the ringer?
When you try to make breakfast, the toaster is stuffed with acorns. When you go to retrieve your mount, @Shtut is there, trying unsuccessfully to unlock their stable. They look into the keyhole. “Is that an acorn in there?”
@randomdaisy cries out, “Oh no! I knew my pet squirrels had gotten out, but I didn’t know they’d made such trouble! Can you help me round them up before they make any more of a mess?”
Following the trail of mischievously placed oak nuts, you track and catch the wayward sciurines, with @Cantras helping secure each one safely at home. But just when you think your task is almost complete, an acorn bounces off your helm! You look up to see a mighty beast of a squirrel, crouched in defense of a prodigious pile of seeds.
“Oh dear,” says @randomdaisy, softly. “She’s always been something of a resource guarder. We’ll have to proceed very carefully!” You circle up with your party, ready for trouble!
Defeat the Sneaky Squirrel.
With a gentle approach, offers of trade, and a few soothing spells, you’re able to coax the squirrel away from its hoard and back to the stables, which @Shtut has just finished de-acorning. They’ve set aside a few of the acorns on a worktable. “These ones are squirrel eggs! Maybe you can raise some that don’t play with their food quite so much.”
