Enter the Heart of the Meteor
A new and powerful adversary has been discovered at Fort Rox hiding within the meteor itself! The mouse known simply as the Heart of the Meteor courses with energy and she is presumed to be the source behind the incredible strength and power of the mice that stalk the night.
Confronting this mouse will be no small task. In order to enter the meteor itself, you'll need what's known as a Portal Projector. Unfortunately, the mice of Fort Rox have carefully hidden this technology by scattering the Portal Projector parts throughout the Fort Rox area.
Start your journey at the Fort Rox Cartographer by purchasing a Fort Rox Scroll Case and begin a treasure hunt! Track down mice at Fort Rox in search of treasure clues, then hope the chest you find is one of the few that contain a Portal Projector component. Once you've constructed a projector from a Portal Core and Portal Console, you'll be able to activate it during dawn to enter the meteor and face off against the Heart of the Meteor!
Capturing the Heart of the Meteor
Capturing the Heart of the Meteor requires a very special and rare type of bait called Sunrise Cheese. This new cheese can be purchased from the Fort Rox Cheese Shoppe for 25 Dawn Dust per piece. It can also be purchased and sold on the Marketplace.
The Heart of the Meteor is brimming with enough energy to empower the mice attacking Fort Rox! Capturing this mouse will be nearly impossible unless until she has been weakened though multiple encounters. Each hunt you take within the meteor where you attract the Heart of the Meteor will weaken her, making her easier to catch each time your trap fails to capture her.
After nine encounters with the Heart of the Meteor without leaving the meteor, her strength will be reduced to that of the puniest of mice in the Meadow and she will be practically impossible NOT to catch! If you're the type of hunter that likes to play it safe and be well prepared, bring a full 10 pieces of Sunrise Cheese!
- This bait is the only cheese that will attract the Heart of the Meteor. It can be purchased from the Fort Rox Cheese Shoppe as well as the Marketplace.
- Each time you encounter this mouse, her strength will decrease. After nine encounters, she will be entirely drained of strength. Retreating from the portal at this point will allow this mouse to regain her strength, so make sure you're well prepared! When caught, the power of the portal will fade and you will find yourself transported back into the Dawn, as if no time had passed at all.
Purchasing a Fort Rox Portal Projector
A Portal Projector is made from three components: a Portal Core, a Portal Console, and plenty of Dawn Dust to fuse the two together. You can find the rare core and console by completing Fort Rox Treasure Maps. Dusting the map will double the chance of finding a projector component!
- This pulsating core is tuned to Fort Rox and provides energy for the Fort Rox Portal Console.
- This socketed console is tuned to Fort Rox and is awaiting a portal core to commence portal projecting.
- Fort Rox Portal Projector
- The completed Fort Rox Portal Projector can purchased from the Fort Rox General Store for the cost of one Fort Rox Portal Core, one Fort Rox Portal Console, and 100 Dawn Dust. The resulting projector can then be used during Dawn at Fort Rox to enter the meteor itself! Keep an eye on the heads-up display after entering Dawn to use your projector!
- Be warned: The intense power surge of projecting a portal will destroy your projector! Each Portal Projector can only be used once, meaning you'll need to purchase a new one each time you wish to enter the Heart of the Meteor. Ensure that you bring enough Sunrise Cheese with you to make the best of your time there!
- Both the Fort Rox Portal Core and Fort Rox Portal Console can be purchased and sold on the Marketplace. Sell extra components you don't need, or purchase the half that you seek! Or, if you're not intrepid enough to seek out Portal Components, purchase both halves from treasure hunters that are not interested in hunting the Heart of the Meteor. Win-win!
Remember: Your Portal Projector is destroyed upon entering the Heart of the Meteor and the power of the portal fades and ejects you from within once she is caught.
Make sure you have enough Sunrise Cheese with you!
Taking on such an above-and-beyond challenge comes with its share of rewards!
- Each capture of the Heart of the Meteor rewards a staggering 1,000,000 Gold and 500,000 Points!
- Upon capturing the Heart of the Meteor for the first time, she will drop Meteoric Core Fragments that are used in a powerful, almost magical Law-based trap! The Meteor Prison Core Trap is constructed from energized pieces of the Fort Rox Meteor that open and then close as a mouse approaches, locking them into a celestial prison cell.
- With 3,000 Power and +8 Luck, the Meteor Prison Core Trap will bring great justice upon mice in outer space style!
