Starting the quest
How to start: Talk to the voodoo woman in the Hex Hut.
Reward: 100 XP.
Needle in a haystack
You'll find the needle in an old red barn. Right next to it are two silos that will make it easier to explore the area.
To get to the barn you must solve the puzzle. This will open the door that will let you inside.
Once you get into the building, you will encounter a bunch of enemies. You need to eliminate them all or you won't be able to complete the quest.
The following climbing section may not be very easy due to the character's movements. Your character can't pull themselves up or hold onto things, so you have to make sure they will always land on their hind legs.
Start by jumping on the metal devices in the right corner of the building.
Next, jump on the boards which are marked with yellow spots.
The hardest part is still ahead. You have to jump onto the wooden pieces and then onto the boards on the left. Your character may not want to jump there and they may end up bouncing off the walls or unwilling to make the second jump.
From the boards, grab onto the rope. Use it to reach the other side of the building. Next, simply jump on the yellow rope that leads to the silo on the right.
Climb to the top of the silo, then jump down to the second silo.
It's a good idea to save the game at this point. If you fall, you will need to go through the entire sequence all over again.
The path from the second silo is simple - get on the yellow rope and into the room.
Inside you must search through the hay to find the needle. Grab it and return to the quest giver.
