Miners Required is a recurring evil side quest in Millfields in Fable III. It becomes available after completing the main quest, but only if you decided to drain and mine Bower Lake. The quest can be used to help your hero gain money, but its main purpose is in fulfilling augment requirements found on certain legendary weapons.


Talk to the highlighted supervisor in the hut below Reaver's Manor in Bower Pits to start this quest. Leave the quarry and look for a suitable candidate; they cannot be people already working in the mines, so those that are miners or crate carriers won't be accepted. There should be some nobles you can recruit near the mansions. Simply grab one by the hand and drag them back to the supervisor to receive your reward.


Put someone to work in the Millfields mine.


A career in mining can't be that bad, can it? Anyway, you've got some money out of it, and that's the important thing.


  • Between 1000 and 6000 gold, based on the social class of the citizen.
    • Beggar: 1500 gold
    • Noble: 6000 gold
  • Morality −10
