What will be needed:


  1. Locate a Pig Village with a Pig King.
  2. Plant Spider Eggs near Pig Village.
  3. Startle Spiders, and let the Pigs kill them. Loot Meat, Pig Skin, Monster Meat, Silk and Spider Glands as quickly as possible.
  4. Give the collected Meat to the Pig King to receive Gold Nuggets.
  5. Feed the collected Monster Meat to the Pigs. They will turn into Werepigs and fight the Pigs.
  6. Collect the Meat and give it to the Pig King.
  7. Use the collected Silk to craft Bird Traps and hunt Birds.
  8. Give the Morsels to the Pig King, and collect Gold Nuggets.


Alternative Method

Build a birdcage, feed the bird Monster Meat. This will yield one Egg. The Egg can be given the Pig King in exchange for one Gold Nugget. If the Monster Meat from Hounds isn't enough, additional Monster Meat can be obtained in various ways. One of the easiest ways is roaming the Marshes and cleaning up after battles between Tentacles, Merms and Spiders (this can easily be combined with collecting Reeds and Tentacle Spikes). 

Cave Fishing Method

In the caves you can fish for eels, which are valued at 5 gold from Pig King. Once you have gathered the desired amount of eels you may use Bundling Wrap to prevent them from spoiling, and return to the surface.

Cave/Ruins Clockwork Method

Broken Clockworks are scattered heavily throughout the ruins and caves underground when hit with a hammer they have a chance to drop Melty Marbles (x4) and Frazzled Wires (x5). These trinkets can be carried in stacks of 20 and traded to the pig king for gold.
