There are 50 gnomes to destroy in Fable 3, with promises of Guild Seals and the Gnome Invasion achievement upon successful extermination. Our guide provides detailed instructions on tracking down every last one.
slide 1 of 12
There are 50 gnomes to find in Fable 3 and locating them all earns the Gnome Invasion achievement, as well as the princely sum of 40 Guild Seals. To start the gnome hunt, you must first complete the side quest "Gnomes are Great" in Brightwall Village, then accept the follow-up "Gnomes are Evil" quest. The gnomes themselves aid you in your task, as they verbally abuse you and make a ruckus when you're nearby, signaling their locations.

Fable 3 Gnomes - Brightwall Village, Reliquary and Dweller Camp
Brightwall Village - Inside Brian's House, high up on the wall. Brian is the original quest-giver so you'll likely get this immediately, though if you somehow get lost his house is beside Brightwall Academy.
Brightwall Village - Affixed to the chimney of the House of Slats.
Brightwall Village - Behind the house known as Bumbler's Gruff, on a boulder.
Reliquary - You'll encounter a room with various moving/floating platforms you need to cross. Afterwards there will be some stairs leading down. The gnome is on the right side of the large column that is at the bottom of the stairway.
Reliquary - Shortly after the previous gnome you'll dive down into the water. There will be some stairs to ascend, leading to a large room with a skeleton and a note. Before reaching that room, look over the railing to the right to see the gnome perched on the wall.
Dweller Camp - From the Mistpeak Valley entrance, cross the bridge and take a right up an incline. Watch your left side for a path that leads to a 5 Silver Key chest. Look above the chest on the wall and you'll spot the gnome.

Mistpeak Valley - At the end of a trail near the Demon Door is a frozen waterfall. The gnome is on top.
Mistpeak Valley - From the Brightwall Village entrance, cross a few bridges up to some ruins that are home to a skeleton and abandoned work equipment. The gnome is clinging to the cliff wall nearby.

The Hole - Enter the Hobbe arena, then turn to face the entry arch. It is hanging up on the archway.
Chillbreath Caverns - There are multiple access points from Mistpeak Valley to Chillbreath Caverns. For this gnome, you'll want to use the entrance uphill from the monorail station. It is identifiable by being a brown, unfrozen cave. Inside is a lake of ice; the gnome is precariously balanced on a stalagmite in the center of it.
Chillbreath Caverns - Start at the Mistpeak Valley Demon Door, facing away from it. Ascend the mountain to the right and keep hanging right until you reach a bridge. Cross the bridge and there is an icy cavern on your left. Proceed inside to Chillbreath Caverns and the gnome is affixed to a stalactite on the ceiling.
