Omelette Factory

From MHWiki

Spring is here again, and the season has come to a shocking start! The nefarious Pan Slammer Mouse and his cooks have not only hijacked this year's supply of Spring Hunt Eggs but they have taken over the Vacant Lot and built themselves an Omelette Factory where the Chocolate Factory normally stands!

He must be stopped before he cooks up all of this year's supply of Spring Hunt Eggs! Who knows what dastardly delights this menace will cook up?!?

Description and Requirements

The Omelette Factory is a special location opened on 15 April during the Spring Egg Hunt 2014. It requires a minimum rank of Recruit to enter. Mice are unable to steal gold or points in this location but may steal cheese if not caught.

Initially, hunters were presented with a Heads-up Display with 10 fuzzy egg images, and a message that the Eggscavator needed recalibration. After a hunter collects 9 eggs, the Pan Slammer Mouse became available, allowing the hunter to collect the final Golden Egg and finish the recalibration, with the following message left in the Hunter's Journal:

That's the last egg!
Now that I've recalibrated my Eggscavator, I will be able to hunt hidden eggs all across Gnawnia!
I can now useEggscavator Charge Charms to charge my Eggscavator for a chance to gather new Low, Medium, and High Charge eggs from mice. The higher the charge, the better the Charge Egg!

At the conclusion of the event on 27 May 2014, hunters remaining in the area were moved to the Meadow, with the following message left in their Hunter's Journal:

Vacant Lot is currently closed. The King's Guards kindly escorted me to the Meadow so that I may resume the hunt.

Hunting Strategy

For the final three weeks of the event, the amount of Charge Eggs was doubled. A hunter remaining in the Omelette Factory and with a bit of a cushion in supplies can utilize the typical expected loot rates to maintain an indefinite cycle of loot, by using Eggscavator Charge Charms to charge up to 20 then Eggstra Charms on the way back down. A hunter could either use normal cheese and drop down to a charge of 12 and collect Marshmallow Monterey from Medium Charge Eggs and event mice, or use SUPER|brie+ and drop down to a charge of 17 and rely solely on the higher encounter rate of event mice. The Marshmallow Monterey obtained each cycle is typically enough to buy sufficient Eggscavator Charge Charms to recharge, and the amount of High Charge Eggs looted is enough to supply Eggstra Charms and SUPER|brie+ to cover the cost of maintaining the cycle.

Hunting tips by Larry

Greetings Eggsplorers! You must act quickly to help liberate this year's eggs from the evil, egg-cracking clutches of the Pan Slammer Mouse! He has taken control of this year's egg supply for his own personal gain: Cooking endless omelettes in an attempt to rule Gnawnia! All we know of his evil plan is it begins with cooking omelettes... Lots and lots of omelettes... We don't know what threat this poses exactly, but we know it can't be good...

Also, under the employ of the Pan Slammer, the Eggscrambler has re-scrambled the frequency of the Eggscavator, rendering it useless again!

You will need to Track down the original 10 painted eggs in the factory in order to re-tune the Eggscavator. Hopefully, with careful calibration, the Eggscavator can then pick up the scent of the eggs again so that hunters can find and complete their collections, keeping as many eggs as possible out of the Pan Slammer's pan!

Good luck and get crackin'!
