Loot

Items affected by Quantum Quartz will duplicate an extra piece of that loot. This loot will also deplete the loot of a chamber, counting toward completing the chamber.
Items unaffected by Quantum Quartz will not be duplicated and will not count toward completing the chamber.

Time Sand will not drop as loot until Hunters have acquired the Ancient Hourglass from the Chronomaster in the Timewarp Chamber.

The loot that mice drop is often dependent on the chamber where the mouse is captured.

Entrance

Hunters encounter the Entrance when first arriving in the Bristle Woods Rift and when returned there after capturing an Absolute Acolyte in the Acolyte Chamber.

Hunters are presented with a single Portal and entering it will transport them to a Gearworks chamber.

Mice

Because Hunters are moved to the Entrance upon capturing an Absolute Acolyte, Runic String Cheese will attract all mice here, but its use (and the use of Ancient String Cheese) is not recommended since it has necessary special attraction effects in other Chambers.

Gearworks

The Gearworks is the first chamber that Hunters will encounter when selecting the single Portal available at the Entrance. This chamber will also appear randomly as Hunters attempt to locate the Acolyte Chamber. Mice here will mainly drop Tiny Sprockets as loot.

There are a total of 25 pieces of Rift loot available from mice in the Gearworks. Every Rift item dropped as loot by the mice in the Gearworks will reduce the loot meter. When the loot meter reaches zero a new selection of Portals will become available and mice will stop dropping Rift items as loot.

Mice

Capturing a Chamber Cleaver will open a new set of Portals, allowing Hunters to leave the Gearworks before depleting the available Rift loot. Other mice will continue to drop Rift items until the loot meter is reduced to zero.

  • At 17-25 loot: The Chamber is too cramped for the Chamber Cleaver Mouse to come around.
  • At 16 and fewer loot: The Chamber Cleaver Mouse is available to catch with Runic String Cheese!

Ancient Laboratory

The mice found in the Ancient Laboratory are the main source of Ancient String Cheese Potions.

There are a total of 35 pieces of Rift loot available from mice in the Ancient Laboratory. Every Rift item dropped as loot by the mice in the Ancient Laboratory will reduce the loot meter. When the loot meter reaches zero a new selection of Portals will become available and mice will stop dropping Rift items as loot.

Mice

Capturing a Chamber Cleaver will open a new set of Portals, allowing Hunters to leave the Ancient Laboratory before depleting the available Rift loot. Other mice will continue to drop Rift items until the loot meter is reduced to zero.

  • At 22-35 loot: The Chamber is too cramped for the Chamber Cleaver Mouse to come around.
  • At 21 and fewer loot: The Chamber Cleaver Mouse is available to catch with Runic String Cheese!

Timewarp Chamber

The mice found in the Timewarp Chamber are the main source of Time Sand which can only be found after acquiring an Ancient Hourglass from the Chronomaster.

Once the Ancient Hourglass has been obtained, mice in all Chambers may drop small amounts of Time Sand, which is necessary for hunting in the Acolyte Chamber.

There are a total of 30 pieces of Rift loot available from mice in the Timewarp Chamber. Every Rift item dropped as loot by the mice in the Timewarp Chamber will reduce the loot meter. When the loot meter reaches zero a new selection of Portals will become available and mice will stop dropping Rift items as loot.

Mice

Hunters must arm Runic String Cheese in order to capture the Chronomaster Mouse and obtain the Ancient Hourglass. Mice will begin dropping Time Sand once Hunters have obtained the Ancient Hourglass.

There are 40 pieces of Rift loot available from mice in the Guard Barracks. Every Rift item dropped as loot by the mice in the Ancient Laboratory will reduce the loot meter. When the loot meter reaches zero a new selection of Portals will become available and mice will stop dropping Rift items as loot.

Security Chamber

Unlucky Alarm Curse

Once the alarm has been triggered, it cannot be reset to zero except by completing a Security Chamber.
Arming Runic String Cheese increases the attraction rate of Portal Paladins, making it easier to reset the alarm when needed.

Acolyte Chamber

This chamber contains the Absolute Acolyte. Hunters must have Time Sand in their inventory before this chamber will appear. The chamber will appear more frequently with higher inventories of Time Sand.

Hunters must charge the Timesplit Obelisk by capturing mice. Each hunt consumes 1 Time Sand from the Hunter's inventory and adds one Time Sand to the Absolute Acolyte's inventory.
When the Timesplit Obelisk reaches a 100% charge the Absolute Acolyte will stop accumulating Time Sand and is released but cannot be captured. Each hunt will now consume 1 Time Sand from both the Hunter and the Absolute Acolyte.
When the Absolute Acolyte's Time Sand reaches zero it can be captured.
Upon capturing an Absolute Acolyte, hunters are transported to the Entrance.
If the Hunter's Time Sand reaches zero they will be removed to a Gearworks. Hunters must then gather more Time Sand before they will be able to find and enter this chamber.

Mice

The mice found in these chambers are attracted only to Runic String Cheese.

Hunting Strategy

Adventure Book

Hunters can complete the Capture the Absolute Acolyte adventure in the Bristle Woods Rift.

Hunting Tips by Larry

The tower consists of an array of chambers separated by impenetrable walls. The only way to move throughout the tower is to pass through the various portals that present themselves within the chambers.

Each chamber is filled with precious loot that the mice themselves are trying to collect in order to fashion a way of escape. Once a chamber has been emptied of its loot, look for a portal to be opened by the mice looking to escape into another more prosperous room.

You will need to find the Ancient Lab and Runic Laboratory chambers to obtain powerful potions that can be used to turn your String Cheese into a more preferred flavour to attract the obscure and powerful mice within the many special chambers of this Rift.

Once you have accumulated some Runic String Cheese, you can attempt to enter the Timewarp Chamber and acquire an Ancient Hourglass. Once obtained, you can then collect valuable Time Sand which will allow you to find the Acolyte Chamber and challenge the fearsome mouse itself.

There is also a plethora of special chambers that offer difficult challenges and unique abilities as well as powerful curses that will hinder your progress. Many great treasures await, so good luck and happy hunting!

Just... try not to lose too much time...
