Lunar New Year 2023
Number of Event Mice: 16
Starting Date: 17 January 2023
Ending Date: 31 January 2023

Overview

During the Lunar New Year 2023 event, Hunters should head to designated stockpile locations throughout the Kingdom first to claim a Rabbit Lunar Lantern from the HUD.

Then, Hunters can hunt normally in the same stockpile locations to obtain Dumpling Cheese as loot from regular mice. Dumpling Cheese (or Nian Gao'da Cheese) can then be armed to attract Lunar New Year Mice that drop Lunar Lantern Candles (or Red Lunar Lantern Candles if Nian Gao'da Cheese is armed).

Finally, Hunters can light Lunar Lantern Candles and Red Lunar Lantern Candles throughout the Kingdom to obtain various bonuses and gain extra rewards depending on the number of candles lit.

HUD

Hunters can track their progress within the event through the Heads-Up Display.

It can be divided into several segments:

  • Top Left:
    • An indicator that shows whether the Hunter is in a stockpile location:
      • If the Hunter is in one, the display reads Lunar Stockpile Found
      • If the Hunter is not in one, the display reads No Lunar Stockpile
      • Regardless, hovering the mouse over the display reveals a text bubble:
      Gather Dumpling Cheese at Lunar Stockpiles from regular mice. Use it to attract and defeat the Costumed Mice!
    • Dumpling Cheese - Quick arm/disarm
      • When armed in a non-stockpile location, the following warning appears in the centre display:
      No Lunar New Year mice here!
      You should select another bait or travel to a Stockpile Location.
      Click "More Info" in the top-right!
      • Hovering the mouse over the Dumpling Cheese reveals a text bubble:
      Dumpling Cheese attracts Lunar New Year and Costumed Mice at Stockpile Locations!
  • Bottom Left:
    • Lunar Lantern Candles - Quick arm/disarm and buy
      • When Lunar Lantern Candles are armed, a sign labelled Double Drops lights up in colour (it is uncoloured when not armed)
      • Hovering the mouse over the Lunar Lantern Candles reveals a text bubble:
      When you have the Rabbit Lunar Lantern, you can use Lunar Lantern Candles to DOUBLE most loot drops!
  • Centre:
  • Top Right:
    • Clicking More Info will open a window with the following:
      • An overview of the event:
      Hunt with Dumpling Cheese to attract Event Mice at stockpile locations to earn candles for the Rabbit Lantern!
      As you burn Lunar Lantern Candles, your Rabbit Lantern will lift into the air and gain extra rewards!
      • An explanation of the loot doubling and tripling effects as well as restrictions:
      Double or even TRIPLE your loot!
      The Rabbit Lunar Lantern will boost the loot a captured mouse is carrying! However, there are a few things it can't quite figure out how to duplicate.
      It will not duplicate:
      Dumpling Cheese
      Nian Gao'da Cheese
      Red or White Lunar Lantern Candles
      Map Pieces
      Treasure Map Clues
      A mouse's gold or points
      Items generated by bases, charms, auras or other special effects
      Certain items with quantity restrictions
      Library Research Assignment Items
      Itself
      Hunters.
      Attempting to duplicate any of these items could break the laws of space-time itself! The King frowns upon that sort of thing.
      Additionally, the Lunar Lantern will not accelerate progress for Bristle Woods Rift Chambers or other areas where mouse loot affects progress.
      Lunar Stockpiles have popped up all over Gnawnia!
      Hunt in these areas below to find Dumpling Cheese, then equip it to attract Lunar New Year mice!
    • Nian Gao'da Cheese - Quick arm/disarm and buy
      • Hovering the mouse over the Nian Gao'da Cheese reveals a text bubble:
      Nian Gao'da Cheese attracts a special stockpile mouse that drops Red Lunar Candles!
  • Bottom Right:
    • Red Lunar Lantern Candles - Quick arm/disarm and buy
      • When Red Lunar Lantern Candles are armed, a sign labelled Triple Treat lights up in colour (it is uncoloured when not armed)
      • Hovering the mouse over the Red Lunar Lantern Candles reveals a text bubble:
      When you have the Rabbit Lunar Lantern, you can use Red Lunar Lantern Candles to TRIPLE most loot drops!

Stockpiles of Dumpling Cheese

Stockpiles of Dumpling Cheese can be found in 13 locations within the Kingdom.
Hunt with the cheeses that attract the mice normally found in these locations to obtain Dumpling Cheese as loot.
Hunting with either Dumpling Cheese or Nian Gao'da Cheese in stockpile locations is the only way to attract the Lunar New Year Mice.
Dumpling Cheese and Nian Gao'da Cheese will not attract mice outside of the stockpile locations.
Hunting with Nian Gao'da Cheese will solely attract Lunar New Year Mice.

  • Each Red Lunar Lantern Candle burned will raise the height by 2 feet.
  • Every 10 feet of the lantern height will add +1 luck.
