Ronza visits Gnawnia

25 July 2017

Ronza is is back with more goodies!

Ronza visits far and distant lands looking for new hunting equipment to bring to the Kingdom of Gnawnia. After a lengthy journey, Ronza has finally returned with a wide array of equipment for sale! Her schedule is a busy one, and she never stays for long, so make sure to visit her shop and browse her wares! Pay special attention to which of Ronza's wares are Limited Edition. Anything marked as Limited Edition is in short supply and will not ever return to the Kingdom!

Ronza's Trapsmith

Chrome Temporal Turbine (Upgrade for the Temporal Turbine)
Ronza has secured another stash of shiny chrome and put it to good use! The Chrome Temporal Turbine Upgrade Kit will upgrade the Temporal Turbine into an even more formidable Shadow trap with 6,000 Power, +28 Luck, and a massive 25% Power Bonus!

Chrome Grand Arcanum (Limited Edition)
This "chromed" version of the Grand Arcanum is an improvement upon the original design, having 5,000 Power and +23 Luck. This trap comes preassembled with its chrome coating, meaning there's no need to own the original Grand Arcanum.

Rocket Propelled Gavel Trap (Limited Edition)
Hunting mice is an absolute SMASH with this capable Physical trap. The Rocket Propelled Gavel Trap has 6,200 Power, +22 Luck, and a healthy 15% Power Bonus, making it great for hunters looking for a step up from the RhinoBot.

Ultimate Iceberg Base (Limited Edition)
This highly complex piece of hunting equipment is the perfect base for traversing the Iceberg! Its "one base fits all" design provides the benefits of all the specialty Iceberg bases, including the Deep Freeze Base!

Ronza's Cartographer

Chrome Scroll Case (New Scroll Case)

This bright and shiny scroll case contains a special treasure hunt that spans the entire Kingdom. The difficulty of map you'll find inside scales with your hunters title and more challenge maps lead to more rewarding chests!

Opening the Chrome Treasure Chest that this map leads to will grant a special Chrome Aura which provides a +5 Luck Bonus for several days! The more challenging the map, the longer the aura lasts. Just like the Slayer Aura, the Chrome Aura duration stacks. If you open a Chrome Chest while having the Chrome Aura, the aura's duration will be extended. Using Rare Map Dust will result in a rare version of the chest that increases the duration of the aura!

These scroll cases are a difficult commodity for Ronza to secure, and as a result, hunters are limited to three each. However, if you manage to complete a Chrome Treasure Map while Ronza is still here, she will sell you another.

Golden Jade Scroll Case

This treasure hunt will take you throughout the Kingdom in search of 20 clues. The chest you'll find is full of Points, Ancient Charms, Ancient Relics, and a wide variety of other goodies!

These scroll cases are not as difficult for Ronza to secure and so have a much lighter carry restriction. Hunters are limited to 100 each.

Airship Supply Ships

Ronza has brought with her "Supply Ships" stocked with tons of useful items! You'll also find Airship Charms, which provide an impressive Power and Luck bonus and are available directly from the Premium Shoppe, as free daily gifts for friends, and as free rewards within Daily Loyalty Chests!

Rockforth Cheese, Rockstar Mice, and Moussile Mice

While hunting at Ronza's Traveling Shoppe, you may come across a bait with an especially loud flavour -- Rockforth Cheese! The extreme volume means you can only hold 99 pieces in your inventory, however, arming it will bring around two special mice! The Rockstar and Moussile Mouse have both come to visit her shoppe and are carrying special loot.

Note: Ronza will leave on 1 August 2017. Be sure to visit her Shoppe before it's too late!

Toxic Spill Saturates The Burroughs

18 July 2017

Pollution Critical in the Burroughs

Despite the best efforts of Digby Scientists and hunters, the pollution levels around the Laboratory have become increasingly high. The pollution has soaked the ground, causing the contamination level to now fall and rise in intervals in sync with the flow of the Burroughs River and the water levels of the ocean it empties into.

Refining Pollutinum

The effects of the Toxic Spill can now be felt at anytime, however, the severity of the pollution rises and falls. Despite the constant radiation, scientists have devised a new means of refining pollutinum to safely convert Crude Pollutinum into its refined counterpart.

Continue to collect Crude Pollutinum from mice at the Toxic Spill, finding greater quantities from more powerful breeds. With Crude Pollutinum in your inventory, activate your refinery device from the heads-up display to begin converting Crude Pollutinum into Pollutinum. You'll refine a quantity of Crude Pollutinum with each hunt you take, assuming you catch a mouse to defend your refinery from attack. If you fail to catch a mouse, it will attack your refinery, causing the Crude Pollutinum to be lost. The quantity of Crude Pollutinum you refine can be increased by upgrading your Waste Barrel.

Soap Charms are now more useful than ever! Along with their impressive hunting bonus against The Polluted Mice, they now also increase your refining ability, refining more Crude Pollutinum with each hunt. Their sudsy power also has defence properties which will prevent any loss of Crude Pollutinum should you fail to catch a mouse while refining.

Magical Radioactive Blue Cheese

A version of Radioactive Blue Cheese even more potent than Rancid Radioactive Blue has been discovered! Magical Radioactive Blue Cheese is available from both the Toxic Spill Cheese Shoppe as well as the Premium Shoppe. It combines Magic Essence with the pungent aroma of Radioactive Blue Cheese to create a potent bait capable of attracting some of the most powerful breeds at the Toxic Spill, no matter the current pollution level.

Magical Radioactive Blue Cheese will attract all but the Mutated Behemoth when used during Hero up to Grand Duke/Grand Duchess contamination levels. The more severe the pollution level, the greater the chance of attracting more powerful breeds. For example: Magical Radioactive Blue Cheese has a rare chance to attract The Menace Mouse during Hero level, however, it has a high chance of attracting The Menance Mouse during Duke level, and further boosts its encounter rate during Grand Duke level! If used during Archduke/Archduchess level, it will dramatically boost the encounter rate of the Mutated Behemoth, the biggest and baddest mouse at the Toxic Spill!

Use Magical Radioactive Blue Cheese when you're looking to hunt down more powerful mice and maximize collection of Crude Pollutinum!

Bristle Woods Rift Maps and Changes

5 July 2017

The Bristle Woods Rift has morphed and changed!

Bristle Woods Rift Updates

The ever-shifting chambers within the Bristle Woods Rift have twisted and turned, revealing new secrets within the Rift Acolyte Tower!

Explore the Bristle Woods Rift with friends by taking on one of two new treasure maps, locate two new rare chambers, and take on the updated Frozen Alcove to discover hidden loot.

New Treasure Maps
Available from the Bristle Woods Rift Cartographer are two new Treasure Map Scroll Cases. The Rift Stalker Scroll Case contains a map with 30 mice spanning the Furoma and Bristle Woods Rift. The Bristle Woods Rift Scroll Case contains a map with 15 mice within only the Bristle Woods Rift.

New Rare Chambers
The Lucky Tower and Hidden Treasury can be found on rare occasion while exploring the Rift Acolyte Tower. These chambers have a massive stockpile of loot including Quantum Quartz, Rift Luck Charms, and Rift Wealth Charms.

Frozen Alcove and Absolute Acolyte Loot
The shifting of the Rift Acolyte Tower has caused a change within the Frozen Alcove. There is now 35 loot to be found within the Frozen Alcove, meaning hunters will be able to loot the chamber more quickly.

The enchantment within the Frozen Alcove has also changed to not only protect against the Absolute Acolyte but also weaken its icy grip. If you've completed the Frozen Alcove, the Absolute Acolyte will drop bonus loot in addition to the Rift Mysterious Box. The nature and value of these items can vary wildly, including anything from lowly Rift Curd to the extremely valuable Timesplit Rune, Clockwork Cogs, Ultimate Charms, and more! The power of the Quantum Pocketwatch is able to reach these items, meaning you'll get additional loot if the Acolyte Drops a rift item and you are using Quantum Quartz!

However, this beneficial discovery for hunters has also come at a price. The discovery of the Absolute Acolyte's weakness has enraged the villain, causing it to steal Time Sand from hunters! However, fear not! Your Acolyte Influence spell will protect you from this dastardly new ability of the Absolute Acolyte Mouse.

Bristle Woods Rift Journal Theme
Amongst all the updates, a new reward has been discovered! The collectible Bristle Woods Rift Journal Theme consists of three scraps hidden within the Rift Acolyte Tower. It's a safe bet that the Absolute Acolyte is carefully protecting one with its icy paws, but, where could the other two be?

Curse Removal Chambers
Finally, the shifting of the tower has revealed a few new paths to finding some chambers. Hunters within the Bristle Woods Rift should find that the Security Chamber, Pursuer Mousoleum, and Furnace Room are slightly easier to find. Additionally, the Acolyte Chamber itself will now appear with a little more regularity. Hunters should notice the Acolyte Chamber appearing a little more often when they have lower quantities of Time Sand.
