Stockpiles of Dumpling Cheese

Stockpiles of Dumpling Cheese can be found in 9 locations within the Kingdom.
Hunt with the cheeses that attract the mice normally found in these locations to obtain Dumpling Cheese as loot.
Hunting with Dumpling Cheese in Stockpile locations is the only way to attract the Lunar New Year Mice and may improve the attraction rate of some of the rarer mice in these locations.

Dumpling Cheese will not attract mice outside of the stockpile locations.

Lunar Lantern and Candles

Hunters must capture the Costumed Rooster Mouse to acquire the Rooster Lunar Lantern. The Rooster Lunar Lantern is powered by Lunar Lantern Candles which are dropped by the Lunar New Year mice found in the stockpile locations.

Luck Boost

Activating the Rooster Lunar Lantern will consume 1 candle with each hunt. Every 10 candles burned will add +1 luck to the Luck Boost effect of the lantern while it is active. The maximum possible luck boost is +50.

This luck boost will be effective throughout the Kingdom, but only while the Rooster Lunar Lantern is active.

Loot Doubling

Activating the Rooster Lunar Lantern will provide a loot doubling effect throughout the Kingdom.

Almost any item that appears as loot in the journal entry for the captured mouse will be doubled. Any items that show up in a separate journal entry will not be doubled.

The following items will not be doubled:

"Attempting to duplicate any of these items could break the laws of space-time itself! The King frowns upon that sort of thing."
