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

The Somnolent Sloth's HP (400) makes this a short quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) make this an easy 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.


As you and your party venture through the Somnolent Snowforest, you're relieved to see a glimmering of green among the white snowdrifts... until an enormous sloth emerges from the frosty trees! Green emeralds shimmer hypnotically on its back.

"Hello, adventurers... why don't you take it slow? You've been walking for a while... so why not... stop? Just lie down, and rest..."

You feel your eyelids grow heavy, and you realize: It's the Somnolent Sloth! According to @JaizakAripaik, it got its name from the emeralds on its back which are rumored to... send people to... sleep...

You shake yourself awake, fighting drowsiness. In the nick of time, @awakebyjava and @PainterProphet begin to shout spells, forcing your party awake. "Now's our chance!" @Kiwibot yells.


Defeat the Somnolent Sloth.

You did it! As you defeat the Somnolent Sloth, its emeralds break off. "Thank you for freeing me of my curse," says the sloth. "I can finally sleep well, without those heavy emeralds on my back. Have these eggs as thanks, and you can have the emeralds too." The sloth gives you three sloth eggs and heads off for warmer climates.
