Birthday Party Zone (2015)

From MHWiki

MouseHunt is turning seven years old! WOW! The King is celebrating with cupcakes for everyone!

Description and Requirements

The Birthday Party Zone is the special event location during MouseHunt's Seventh Birthday in 2015, requiring a minimum rank of Recruit to enter. Mice are unable to steal gold or points, but may steal multiple pieces of cheese if not caught.

MouseHunt's Seventh Birthday event came to an end on 19 March 2015; hunters remaining in the area were moved to the Vacant Lot, where the shoppes remained open for an additional week, and where hunters could cancel a cupcake order that they could no longer complete in order to make slots available for attempting other orders.

HUD Description

The area includes a Heads-up Display to track progress in collecting and shipping orders of cupcakes. Upon arriving at the birthday celebration, you can pick up to three orders to work on at once from the heads-up display. There are seven different varieties of orders available, each celebrating a different year of MouseHunting.

In the HUD, the following properties of each order are shown:

At first a hunter can only take Year One orders. Upon taking an order, the following message appears in the Hunter's Journal:

I started a cupcake order!
I have taken on a Year X cupcake order.

Upon completing an order, the following message appears:

I completed a cupcake order!
I turned in the Year X cupcake order and earned...
XXX.
I should keep collecting cupcakes and fulfilling orders!

Upon the completion of a hunter's first ever order, the Hunter earns the Cupcake Birthday Base and this message appears:

This was my first cupcake order!
I received a Cupcake Birthday Base as a reward for my contribution!
Happy Birthday, MouseHunt!

The hunter then can pick up another order in place of the completed one, and can also access a Year Two order. With each completion of an order, an additional year is unlocked until all 7 years are unlocked. Each year's order has special properties: requiring a certain number of cupcakes, certain colors, and attract certain groups of mice.

Shipping one of each kind of order earns the Hunter the Stale Cupcake Golem Trap, a Limited Edition Forgotten weapon. The following message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal:

I have shipped one of each type of cupcake order!
I received a Stale Cupcake Golem Trap as a reward for my hard work!
Happy Birthday, MouseHunt!

Shipping 100 Cupcakes earns the Hunter the MouseHunt Cupcake Theme. The following message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal:

I shipped 100+ cupcakes!

Mice in the Birthday Party Zone

Arming Standard Cheeses in the Birthday Party Zone attracts mice that will drop Cupcake Colby Potions, but not Cupcakes.

Arming Cupcake Colby Cheese will attract a variety of mice depending on the active Cupcake Orders the Hunter is attempting to fill. These mice will drop the various Cupcakes, but not Cupcake Colby Potions.

Mice encountered in the Birthday Party Zone will have weaknesses to all power types, but their typical weaknesses are still likely to be their greatest.

On 17 March the Lucky Mouse was released. An additional 5 Luck was granted to all Hunters and the following additions were made to Loot drops:

"It's my lucky day! The mouse dropped 1 extra Green Birthday Cupcake!"
"It's my lucky day! The mouse dropped a Rainbow Luck Charm!"
"It's my lucky day! The mouse dropped 1 extra Green Birthday Cupcake and a Rainbow Luck Charm!"

Hunting Strategy

Arming Standard Cheeses in the Birthday Party Zone attracts mice that will drop Cupcake Colby Potions, but not Cupcakes.

Arming Cupcake Colby Cheese will attract a variety of mice depending on the active Cupcake Orders the Hunter is attempting to fill. These mice will drop the various Cupcakes, but not Cupcake Colby Potions.

Mice you encounter in the Birthday Party Zone will have weaknesses to all power types, but their typical weaknesses are still likely to be their greatest.

Hunting Tips by Larry

The Birthday Cupcake Delivery Extravaganza is a celebration for MouseHunt’s seventh birthday. Hunters are tasked with helping the King recover cupcakes from mice and fulfill orders. Just make sure to dust the rodent fur off of them a bit before shipping them off for consumption.

First things first, you are going to want to secure a supply of Cupcake Colby!

Arming standard bait will attract birthday themed mice that will have a chance to drop Cupcake Colby potions.

Once you have some Cupcake Colby, you may arm it and start attracting birthday themed mice that will have a chance at dropping Cupcakes!

Cupcakes are required in order to complete orders from The King and earn this years unique birthday rewards!

At this point you may also want to take a look at the available list of cupcake orders from the HUD.

Clicking “Orders Available” will take you to the cupcake order popup page. This page tracks your progress throughout the cupcake caper event as well as this years unique rewards and how to obtain them.

You may accept up to three orders at a time but be careful! Once you have accepted an order you can not get rid of it until you ship it! A hunters word is his bond after all! Once an order is accepted, those mice will then join the party and become able to be attracted with Cupcake Colby.

Mice attracted with Cupcake Colby from an active order have the greatest chance at dropping cupcakes! So make sure you take those orders!

Once you ship the order you will be rewarded with loot related to the year of the order that you completed!

Phew! That was a mouthful! Good luck and Happy Birthday Hunting!
