A strange meteor has landed near Claw Show City, leaving a huge impact crater near the Gnawnian Express rails! This mysterious meteor brings with it a mysterious new breed of mice and their presence threatens the lives of the citizens of Varmint Valley. Around the crater, an encampment of hunters has surrounded these dangerous mice and are setting up a fort to hold them back!


Overview

Fort Rox is a location in the Varmint Valley region requiring a minimum rank of Baron or Baroness to enter. It also requires the purchase of the Fort Rox Battle Summons from the Claw Shot City Cartographer.


Hunting During the Day
During the Day Hunters will encounter mice that are primarily weak to Law weapons and attracted to Standard Cheese and SUPER|brie+. These mice drop Meteorite Pieces used for building the Basic Wall and for repairing any damage to the Wall done during the Night. Hunters can make upgrades to their Fort during the Day using materials gathered during the Night.


Hunting at Night
Hunters must build a Basic Wall before they can defended the Fort by hunting during the Night. Mice found during the Night are weak only to Arcane and Shadow weapons and have a preference for Crescent Cheese or Moon Cheese, though Standard Cheese and SUPER|brie+ may be used to lesser effect.

The Night is divided into 6 phases: Twilight, Midnight, Pitch, Utter Darkness, First Light, and Dawn. The goal for Hunters is to survive the first 5 stages of Night and reach Dawn, where the Monster of the Meteor may be encountered. Mice encountered at Night will damage the Hunter's Wall and when its Health reaches 0, the Hunter will be moved back to Day.

Materials found during the Night may be used during the Day to upgrade the defensive features of the Hunter's Fort.


Hunting in the Heart of the Meteor
Hunters must acquire the Fort Rox Portal Projector and enter the Dawn phase of Night to be able to access the Heart of the Meteor.

Sunrise Cheese is required to attract the Heart of the Meteor mouse, the only resident of the Heart of the Meteor.

Entering the Heart of the Meteor consumes the Fort Rox Portal Projector and capturing the Heart of the Meteor mouse returns Hunters to the Dawn phase of Night.

HUD

The HUD shows the Hunter's Fort and the various defensive features. When Hunters first enter Fort Rox the various defensive features are shown as dotted outlines which are replaced with images of the features as they are built and upgraded.

Defensive features can only be upgraded during the Day. The Upgrade interface may be opened by clicking on a defensive feature or by clicking on the Upgrade button found at the bottom center of the HUD.

The HUD tracks the following items:

Selecting Defend Fort will allow Hunters to enter the Night. During Night, the current phase of the night and the number of hunts remaining until Dawn are shown at the top of the HUD.. When Dawn is reached, the anger level of the mice and the damage modifier are shown at the top of the HUD.

Hunters can choose to retreat while hunting at night and any remaining wall health will be preserved. The option to retreat is not available during Dawn.

Upgrading the Fort

Using the HUD, Hunters are able to open the Upgrade interface and construct five different defensive features to help them defeat the mice found during the Night. The upgrade interface tracks the Hunter's inventory of Meteorite Pieces, Howlite, Bloodstone, Tower Mana, and Dawn Dust.

Each of the defensive features can be upgraded to provide greater benefits and effects. Upgrades for the individual defensive features must be made in order.

The effects of each upgrade combine with those of previous upgrades, except for the Wall and Moat.

Example: It is not necessary to complete any Wall upgrades to make a Moat upgrade, but it is necessary to make the Small Moat upgrade before the Big Moat upgrade can be made.

Fort defensive features (except the Mage Tower) have no effect during the Day.

Upgrades may only be made during the Day.

Night Hunting

"This is my fort, I have to defend it."
"I've done what I can to ready my fort and I am now ready to fight."
"I await nightfall to face the hordes of Meteorite Miners and stand against them for as long as I can!"

Mice found during Night are weak only to Arcane and Shadow weapons. Crescent Cheese and Moon Cheese are preferred by mice at Night, but Standard Cheese and SUPER|brie+ will attract mice at a lower rate. Mice found during the Night drop Meteorite Pieces, Tower Mana, Howlite, Bloodstone, and Dawn Dust. These items are primarily used to upgrade the Hunter's Fort defenses. The Hunter's Fort defenses can only be upgraded during the Day.

To hunt during the Night, select Defend Fort at the upper left of the HUD which will open the following pop-up:

"Are you prepared to defend your fort?"
"Once night falls, an unending horde of terrors will descend."
"Defend your fort and survive as long as you can!"
"Spend [X] Meteorite Piece(s) to repair to full health?"
This message is shown only when a Hunter attempts to enter night with a damaged wall. Checking the box in front of this message will spend the Meteorite Pieces necessary to bring the wall to full health.
"I need more time"
or
"I'm ready to defend!"

Phases of the Night

Hunters defend their Fort by hunting during the night and reaching Dawn. As hunters progress through the night, their wall will take damage. When the wall's health is reduced to zero, Hunters will be moved back to Day. The goal is to reach Dawn with enough wall health left to successfully hunt the Dawn Destroyers.

Each phase of the night has a specific length and every hunt made will cause the Hunter to progress toward Dawn. The total length of the 5 phases of Night is 130 hunts. Failing to capture a Nightmancer Mouse will extend the length of the night by 3 hunts. An active Mage Tower with the Sunsphere Enchantment will reduce the hunts until Dawn by 2 after every hunt.

The phases, in order, are:

  • Twilight - 35 hunts long
Weremice are abundant
Shadow weapons are recommended
  • Midnight - 25 hunts long
Weremice are still the most abundant mice, but Cosmic Critters begin to appear.
Shadow weapons are still recommended
  • Pitch - 10 hunts long
Weremice and Cosmic Critters are found in equal measure
Arcane and Shadow weapons are both effective
  • Utter Darkness - 25 hunts long
Cosmic Critters are now the most abundant mice, but Weremice may still appear.
Arcane weapons are recommended
  • First Light - 35 hunts long
Cosmic Critters are abundant
Arcane weapons are recommended

Completing First Light generates a journal entry:

"I've made it to dawn. Now the real fight begins."
"I must face off with the Monster of the Meteor in order to keep Varmint Valley safe!"
  • Dawn - No set length.
Hunters may hunt here until their wall is reduced to zero health.
The Dawn Guardian and Monster of the Meteor are found here
Arcane weapons are recommended
The Battering Ram Mouse will be encountered here when hunting with Standard Cheese or SUPER|brie+
  • Heart of the Meteor - No set length.
Hunters must enter Dawn and posses a Fort Rox Portal Projector to enter this phase.
The Heart of the Meteor is the only mouse found in this phase.
Sunrise Cheese is required to attract the Heart of the Meteor mouse.
Arcane weapons are recommended.
Capturing the Heart of the Meteor will return the Hunter to the Dawn phase.
Fort defenses have no effect and Tower Mana cannot be armed. Wall health is not affected in this phase.

Wall Health and Damage

The Basic Wall is required before Hunters may defend the Fort at night. When the Wall is reduced to zero health, Hunters will be moved back to Day and the Wall will need to be repaired using Meteorite Pieces before Hunters can hunt during the Night again.

Wall Health

The Wall's health determines how long Hunters will be able to survive during the night. It is not possible to partially repair a wall, but Hunters may enter night with a partially damaged wall that is not at full health.

  • Basic Wall - Maximum Health: 50
  • Howlite Wall - Maximum Health: 100
  • Blood Bastion - Maximum Health: 200
  • Moonbeam Fortress - Maximum Health: 350

Wall Damage

Mice encountered during the Night will damage the Hunter's Wall under certain circumstances.

  • Failure to Catch (FTC) = 3 damage
  • Red Box FTC = 5 damage
  • Failure to Attract (FTA) = 5 damage
  • Nightfire Mouse, FTC = 10 damage
  • Battering Ram Mouse, any encounter = 15 damage

Wall Damage -- Dawn

When Hunters reach Dawn each catch of a Monster of the Meteor will multiply the damage effects to the wall by an additional 100%. Any FTC of a Monster of the Meteor or Dawn Guardian will result in greater damage to the Hunter's wall. Damage from encountering a Battering Ram Mouse is not multiplied.

Shielding Charms can be used to prevent mice from stealing gold, points, or cheese and causing a red box FTC. The amount of damage this prevents can be significant when the damage multiplier is high.

Heart of the Meteor Hunting

The Heart of the Meteor mouse is primarily weak to Arcane weapons, though Shadow weapons can be used to lesser effect. Sunrise Cheese is required to attract the Heart of the Meteor.

The Hunter's Fort defenses have no effect in the Heart of the Meteor. Tower Mana cannot be armed while hunting in this phase.

To access the Heart of the Meteor, Hunters must acquire 100 Dawn Dust, 1 Fort Rox Portal Core, and 1 Fort Rox Portal Console in order to purchase the Fort Rox Portal Projector. The Fort Rox Portal Projector will allow Hunters to enter the Heart of the Meteor during the Dawn phase of Night. It is consumed in the process, replaced with a Ruined Portal Projector collectible.

Fort Rox Portal Cores and Fort Rox Portal Consoles are found as rewards in Fort Rox Treasure Chests and Rare Fort Rox Treasure Chests. They can be traded on the Marketplace.

The Heart of the Meteor mouse's power will be depleted with each attraction, to the point where it is a guaranteed catch on the 10th attraction. Capturing the Heart of the Meteor will return Hunters to the Dawn phase of Night.

To reenter the Heart of the Meteor Hunters will need to purchase another Fort Rox Portal Projector. Hunters may enter the Heart of the Meteor multiple times without affecting their Wall health or progress in the Dawn phase.

Mice -- Heart of the Meteor

The only mouse found in the Heart of the Meteor is the Heart of the Meteor.

Hunting Strategy

Hunting tips by Larry

Hello there, hunter!

Welcome to Fort Rox, recently under siege thanks to the commotion caused by the fallen meteor, the citizens here need your help to fight off the mice that have begun to overrun the area.

During the day, things are a lot calmer and the mice will listen to reason, making them vulnerable to Law traps. You will also be able to use this time to build up your resources and defenses in preparation for the attack. You will need to build the Basic Wall before you will be ready to defend your fort.

The day might feel like a walk in the park, however, don't get too comfortable. At night, things start to get a little... "hairier"...

You are gonna have to do your best to hold off the assault on Varmint Valley throughout the night. The night lasts 130 hunts. As you hunt through the night, different types of mice will begin to appear. Make sure you pay attention to the time of night and adjust your trap setup accordingly.

Mice will damage your wall if you fail to capture them and some even if you do capture them! If your wall gets destroyed, you will be forced to retreat until day, where you can rebuild and try again.

Survive the night and make it to dawn where the toughest mice lie in wait!
