Opposites Attract Walkthrough

At the basement of Ryker's mansion, there is a rat and a turtle.

If you have Pet Pal talent, you will learn that the turtle is in love with the rat. 

You can use foods to lure the rat to the turtle (hit and miss). Or you can teleport the turtle to the rat and once they have hearts swirling above them you can talk to the turtle and finish the quest.


Tips & Tricks

  • After finishing the quest A Generous Offer, you can pick up fruit in the dining room of Ryker's mansion to use for this quest if you haven't brought fruit or cheese with you.
  • Use Teleportation (or the Gloves of Teleportation) to teleport Rory if you can't be bothered going back up for the fruit.

      I'm an idiot. I thought you had to feed Rory a certain food for the quest to progress. I spent so long scoring the island for CheeseFood? FruitFood?

        You can use Nether Swap instead of Teleportation, and swap one of your group members which is close to the turtle with the rat. This way you avoid damaging the rat.

          Use the fruit you gather from the first and second floor, drop them in a beeline towards the turtle and watch him feed his way down to her. They will cuddle and you will finish the quest

            Just put armour of frost on the rat before teleporting. And teleport the rat as far away as possible to the left of the waterfall and he will walk past the turtle and smooch her.

              Using a food trail the rat won't go down the stairs so I teleport the rat, the rat dies. I teleport the turtle and it starts a fight with me.

                This was a very frustrating one. The rat dies if teleported, but you can teleport the turtle just inside the entrance (but not on or beyond the rat else he dies or gets scared and runs away outside) and little heart signs start swirling above them, you can then talk to the turtle and complete the quest.

                  Fun fact, if you just keep feeding Rory and don't make a trail he will eat everything nonstop until he clears it all. Big stomach for a rat.

                    I decided i couldn't bring myself to kill them for the playthrough, though i can confirm. 13,500 exp each. :(

                      Speak to the Turtle to get the quest and if you don't have enough food to bait the rat it's possible to teleport it down to the turtle but make sure not to damage the turtle. After getting the rat close to the turtle you can talk to the turtle again and finish the quest (there will be purpleish sparks flying around them both if you've teleported the rat correctly)

                        If you introduce them to each other they become In Love and there are hearts and pink particles around them. At that point the rat no longer cares about food as much a he does about love. We discovered that they give like 14k exp a piece though as my friend decided if he can't have love then no one can. RIP true love =(

                          I couldn't get the rat down the stairs so I try to teleport the rat but by doing that you get -5 attitude because of the damage of teleportation. After speaking to the turtle again the quest conclude.
