Melee Combat Test is the second main quest in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. As you finish your childhood melee training, the Guild alarm sounds; looks like there's some Beetles loose in the Guild Woods. The Guildmaster sends you in to kill them.


After you enter the Guild Woods, you will find three Beetles on its eastern side. After each Beetle is defeated, a new one will emerge from the brush and join the fray. Each Beetle can be taken down with one hit from either your fists or your Stick. When ten Beetles have been killed the quest will be completed and the Guildmaster will call you back out of the woods.


Kill the beetles infesting the Guild Woods.


  1. Kill the beetles infesting the Guild Woods.


  • The Beetles have a hard time hitting you, even when standing still.
  • If you don't use your stick to attack the Beetles, the Guildmaster will say, "Use your stick." This can get annoying as he repeats this statement every ten seconds. He doesn't do this in Fable Anniversary.
