Overview

Dracano is a location in the Tribal Isles region requiring the minimum rank of Knight and the Ocean Navigation Kit to enter.
Mice in this location may steal points, or gold (but not multiple pieces of cheese) if not captured.

Hunters must use Inferno Havarti Cheese in Dracano. The ingredients necessary to craft Inferno Havarti Cheese are found in Derr Dunes, Elub Shore, Nerg Plains, and the Jungle of Dread.

A Draconic weapon is required to capture the Dragon Mouse and is very strongly recommended for catching the Draconic Warden and Whelpling mice.

Formula: Ocean Navigation Kit

Dracano Mice

The mice found in Dracano are part of the Draconic Brood group and weak to Draconic weapons. The use of other Power Types should be avoided in this location.

Hunting Strategy

The mice found in Dracano are weak to Draconic weapons. Hunters entering Dracano for the first time should craft the Ice Maiden which requires a Frozen Scroll found as loot from the Acolyte Mouse. The Ice Maiden is currently the only non-limited edition Draconic weapon available to Hunters.

Hunters must also hunt with Inferno Havarti Cheese in Dracano as no other bait will attract the mice found here.

Hunters wishing to travel to the Seasonal Garden will need Zugzwang's Scarf which is found in the Dragon's Chest dropped by the Dragon Mouse in Dracano or as loot from Icewing in the Iceberg.

Hunting tips by Larry

You're going in there? Are you insane? Well, I've never managed to stop you before. Let me know if you come back alive, and if you don't. . . well, I guess I'll just have to figure that one out on my own.
