Bringing Home the Bacon (members only)


Today we're serving up a classic RuneScape quest experience. It's fully voiced, packed with characteristic humour, and has fantastic rewards that stay useful from low levels right up to the 80s, including - of course - belt-bursting quantities of bacon.
 

Eli Bacon was just a reclusive, ethically suspect farmer until a tragic accident revealed to him a meaty secret long lost to the ravages of time. Pigs, it turns out, are delicious when cooked. Who knew?

However, the terrifying reaction of the few locals who've tried the new meat product made one thing abundantly clear: if bacon were simply to be released upon the unsuspecting world, the pig population would be swiftly and mercilessly devoured.


Can you convince the world that pigs are good for something other than food and pig wrestling? Can you do it without being complicit in Eli's dubious farming methods? And what in the world do onions have to do with this? All this - and more - is revealed in Bringing Home the Bacon.
 
Success will earn you more than just an expanded waistline. There's a buffet of fantastic rewards on offer once the quest is complete.

Foremost among these are three new summoning familiars: the spirit war pig, the spirit prayer pig and the spirit pack pig. These three familiars offer combat assistance, mobile prayer restoration and beast-of-burden functions respectively. You'll be able to gather the ingredients you need to make these by killing pigs, found in pig pens in Eli's cellar and around the world.

They're also the only summoning familiars that can be scaled up as you increase in levels. If you have level 44 in Summoning, Crafting and Construction, you can perform an upgrade in Eli's basement that improve your pig familiars. Get to level 88 in those three skills and another upgrade will become available. These upgrades will make any pig familiars you create better at their roles - stronger in combat, more restorative of prayer points, or with greater carrying capacity.

Note: In the interests of keeping this news article spoiler-free, we've given only essential information here. Eli will give you full details of how to create the three types of familiars when you speak to him post-quest.

On top of that, you'll become the proud owner of a customisable pig follower pet. Depending on your actions during the quest, the pig's default appearance will vary. This can be tweaked post-quest by making alterations in the basement , and the pig's name can be altered by speaking to Martin the Master Gardener in Draynor Marketplace.

Lest we forget, you'll also have access to bacon - meat of kings and breakfast of champions. Bacon is acquired by killing pigs in Eli's cellar, and is a foodstuff of great versatility. It can be cooked as it is, or - as your Cooking level increases - combined into ever-more gargantuan stacks. It can be baked into pork pies, or even be brewed into Pigswill beer, which gives a temporary two-level Farming boost, in exchange for a brief, equivalent loss of Strength.

Bacon products have a range of Cooking requirements up to level 74. It's also worth noting that bacon food items heal up to than equivalent food at their level.

Finally, there's a frenetic, bacon-related treat for your ears unlocked upon completion of the quest. Check your music playlist for Glutton for Nourishment - a fully-voiced musical track.

Enjoy!

Mod Wilson

I must say I really enjoyed the quest, great light hearted fun. The humour wasnt really lots of puns as i expected, but instead lots of really funny references to poular culture/movies etc, very cleverly done. Eli Bacon is a complete mentalist , would love to see him again in a quest. I liek that it had elements of old quest too as they said, going to talk to people and get stuff occasionally as opposed to the typical new quests where everything is handed to you on a platter.

The voice acting really worked and having the music on for once made me realise how much better the more recently released music is compared to the old stuff. I guess the big difference is that theyre actually using instruments to make the music now ,instead of the old music which was all made on sythesisers, which makes it sound so dated. I really hope we get a good amount of music reworks with RS3.

You can't place items on tables any more... Thats just horrible - I'm not sure why I feel passionate about reverting that, but it just took away some of the much desired aesthetics of the game. Next up: removal of sitting...

Managed to reload the game, woo.
Familiars require 6 shards, a pouch, a gold charm and a pig tooth. 15-16 xp per pouch.
17 min timer, drains 2 summoning points to summon.
Bacon combines into stacks, stack sizes are 2, 4, 8 and 16. The 16-piece stack heals 1100 lp (examine: 'breakfast for one').

16-stack heals 1100? Is it one bite or two?

Eh, only one bite. T54 food should heal 1188 though, not 1100.

The bacon does not direct stack.

2 Raw bits of bacon = 1 stack
2 Stacks = the next one
2 of the next one = the next
2 of the next = 1 mound

All are 1 bite, seems mildly useful for lower levels but waaaaayyyyy outclassed at higher levels.

Oh yeeeeeaaaah. A quest. Gonna do as soon as I can log in. I need to reclaim my cape and have some fun before I get back to the RS skill grind contest...

Or I could just leave it so I'd have something to do when RS3 comes out.

Quick question: There is a long of British humor in this game that flies over my head. So is there like a list of some sort that can explain the jokes I know I am going to miss?

Made a pork pie, which is supposed to require 74 cooking. It's only one bite to eat, and heals 1080LP, which makes it t54 food (doesn't seem to account for the 10% bonus bacon food is supposed to get). Also boosts your summoning and farming by 5.

In your bacon eating frenzy you also consume the pie dish.

Oh well, people never learn.

What about God statues D&D? What about Vorago? What about HTML5? People should have understood by now it is best to stay away from new content and let others lose their earned skill levels/items and time over various unforeseen issues.

Vorago Shard costs 390 runecoins. He is miniature and not nearly as big as most companions.
