|Release date:||January 4, 2001|
|Start:||Talk to the Farmer Fred (northwest Lumbridge at his farm inside the house).|
|Introduction:||Farmer Fred needs his sheep sheared, an easy quest for starting players.|
|Notes:||In RS2 converted to a mini-game on December 15, 2009. The quest was removed on June 24, 2010.|
This is the first quest ever created by Jagex, originally appearing in RuneScape's predecessor game DeviousMUD.
If you are wondering where black sheep, wool and ball of wool came from and why black wool items are non-tradable, it was Jagex's attempt to get players to actually do the work of this quest themselves.
|Help:||Use only if you are really stuck!|
The general store has a tool you need.
|Ball of wool:|
On the 2nd floor of the Lumbridge Castle is the final tool you need.
