Visit Sweltering Queso Canyon
The King's Royal Explorers have returned from their exploratory expedition to Queso Canyon with detailed information about where to hunters can setup their camp sites. Hunters who have obtained the Queso Dowsing Rod from the Fort Rox Cartographer can now travel to this new region where there are three new areas to explore!
The areas in the region require the hunter rank of Count/Countess or higher to enter and the explorers recommend first setting up camp at the Queso River. The river contains a special pump, however, the mice there are relentlessly attacking it. You'll need to attract a mouse away from the pump and catch it to secure the delicious Bland Queso from the river!
- Use a specialized pump to extract Bland Queso from the river.
- Harvest spicy leaves to flavour your Bland Queso and blend new varieties.
- Mine for a slightly salty metal known as Nachore to upgrade your Queso Pump.
Blending Flavourful Queso
Explore all that Queso Canyon has to offer to discover six unique varieties of queso. The pump at the Queso River will extract Bland Queso from the flowing river with each successful hunt which you can use to then hunt at both the Prickly Plains and Cantera Quarry.
Hunt at the Prickly Plains for Spice Leaves which you can then blend with Bland Queso to create Mild, Medium, Hot, or even Flamin' Queso! The spicier your queso, the more powerful (and lucrative) mice you'll encounter.
Hunt at the Cantera Quarry to collect the valuable Nachore resource, which you can use to upgrade your pump. Higher level pumps will extract more queso at the river, boosting your production capabilities!
Boost Your Collection Capabilities
Made from a secret source of wild desert flowers, Wild Tonic is a big ol' bottle of YEE-HAW! Its magical properties carry all sorts of benefits for hunters in the region. At the Queso River, Wild Tonic will aide your pump, DOUBLING the quantity of queso extracted. In the Prickly Plains, Wild Tonic will fertilize the soil to DOUBLE the quantity of spices dropped by mice. At the Cantera Quarry, Wild Tonic will violently erupt, blasting through the rock, DOUBLING the quantity of Nachore.
The pump at Queso River can also be doubled in efficiency by utilizing Queso Pump Charms. These trinkets of technology will operate your pump for you each time you capture a mouse ANYWHERE in the Kingdom (except magical locales like The Rift and related areas). The additional pump operation will not be affected by any bonuses such as Wild Tonic, but if you use them in the river your pump will effectively operate TWICE per capture.
- Doubles loot drops!
- Collect queso anywhere!

Queso Dowsing Rod leads to Queso Canyon
Access to a whole new hunting region will soon be unlocked! Get prepared now by obtaining a magical Queso Dowsing Rod, imbued with Dawn Dust, to locate this new and expansive region.
The region of Queso Canyon is located east of Varmint Valley and south of Valour. The region's landscape is defined by a river flowing with delicious liquid queso cheese! Along the shores grow desert plants with spicy leaves and just past the canyon lies an enormous quarry where a slighty-salty metal known is Nachore can be extracted.
The King's Royal Explorers are still charting the river flow to know the exact places where hunters can setup camp sites, but you can get prepared in advance by obtaining a Queso Dowsing Rod from the Cartographer at Fort Rox.
Loot an Inert Dowsing Rod from the Monster of the Meteor
Found amongst the rock and rubble surrounding the meteorite crater at Fort Rox are mysterious splintered sticks. Ignored by the Scientists of Digby at first, these sticks have been exposed to some strange dormant cosmic energy from the Fort Rox meteor. Now saturated with this space magic, it seems the true ability of these otherwise plain sticks can be activated by Dawn Dust!
Capture the Monster of the Meteor to recover one of these lost Y-shaped rods and then have the Fort Rox Cartographer imbue it with 50 Dawn Dust from your inventory to create a Queso Dowsing Rod that will magically lead you to the flowing liquid Queso River.
Once the King's explorers have identified camp sites in Queso Canyon, any hunter with a Queso Dowsing Rod will be able to navigate their way into the cheesy canyon. The King's explorers expect to return in less than a week's time!
