The spirit pack pig is a Beast of Burden familiar that can be created in the machine under Eli's farm, after completion of the Bringing Home the Bacon quest. The familiar comes in 3 tiers. Each tier uses the same pouch. To increase the tier of the pigs, one must upgrade the machine in the storm cellar. Upgrading the machine after obtaining a pouch still summons the higher-tiered familiar. Level boosting items cannot be used to build the next tier of machine.

Tier 2 requires level 44 Summoning, Construction, and Crafting, as well as three oak planks, two steel bars and three nails of any type.

Tier 3 requires level 84 in Summoning, Construction, and Crafting, as well as three teak planks, two mithril bars and three nails of any type (bring more in case they bend in the upgrade process).

1 14 4 16 min
2 44 8 32 min
3 84 22 64 min

Ten free pack pig pouches can be gained per week by speaking to Eli with the machine set to create pack pigs.

Storage capabilities[edit | edit source]

See a detailed list here.

The tier 3 Pack pig has a storage capacity and duration greater than that of the War Tortoise but a lower combat level. Unlike the tortoise, the Pack pig is non-aggressive. The cost of the pack pig pouch can't be calculated because the teeth are untradeable. However, compared to the Tortoise, it requires five extra shards (125 coins), and collecting pig teeth may take about as long as collecting tortoise shells. With the Tortoise, however, the shells and pouches can be purchased from the Grand Exchange or other players.

However, the Pack yak is superior in every way.

The tier 2 pack pig, however, has a higher requirement than the Bull ant, but a lower storage capacity.

The tier 1 pack pig is slightly superior to the thorny snail with higher and more requirements.

Pack pig pouch[edit | edit source]


A pack pig pouch is used in the Summoning skill to summon a pack pig. It is made by using a Summoning pouch on the Pack pig machine with 6 spirit shards, a gold charm and a pack pig tooth in your inventory. It gives 15.6 Summoning experience when made. Using this pouch on a Summoning obelisk will enable a player to create 10 Spirit Pig scroll (Bacon Blast).

Spirit Pig scroll (Bacon Blast)[edit | edit source]


The Spirit Pig scroll (Bacon Blast) fires deadly bacon at a target (but only works with the spirit war pig familiar).
