New Adventure in Moussu Picchu

06 September 2017

A new hunting area has been discovered in Hollow Heights!

Climb to the Peak of Moussu Picchu

The King's Royal Cartographers have returned from their Labyrinth expedition and have discovered the passage to Moussu Picchu! Hunters with the rank of Grand Duke/Duchess or above who have obtained the Moussu Picchu Climbing Route can now access Moussu Picchu.

The mountain ranges of Moussu Picchu once spanned all of Hollow Heights, until the powerful storm dragon Ful'Mina, the Mountain Queen, reduced several mountains to rubble. Now, hunters can take control of the weather in Moussu Picchu to summon Ful'Mina for a wealth of rewards!

Wind and Rain

The mice of Moussu Picchu worship the sky and weather and have learned to control the weather itself! There are three distinct groups of mice in the area, the first control the wind, the second control the rain, and the third group are powerful dragons able to control both the wind and rain!

Explore Moussu Picchu to collect potions and brew cheese to lure these unique groups of mice towards your trap. Capturing Wind Wanderer mice will disrupt their control of the wind, allowing it to blow wildly, increasing the Wind Intensity. Similarly, capturing Rain Roamer mice will disrupt their control of the rain, allowing the deluge to fall, increasing the Rain Intensity.

Although capturing the wind and rain mice increase weather intensity, failing to capture or attract mice will allow them to continue their harvest of wind and rain, causing the weather intensity to lower. However, this effect can be mitigated by lighting an enchanted Fire Bowl from your heads-up display. While lit, each hunt will consume Fire Bowl Fuel and prevent the weather intensity from decreasing.

The wind and rain mice hold the key to luring the final powerful group of dragons in the form of Shadowvine and Arcanevine. These two crafting ingredients are used to create Dragonvine Cheese to attract dragons which, when captured, will cause both the wind and rain intensity to increase simultaneously.

Experiment with controlling the weather and see which breeds you attract! Summon the perfect storm and Ful'Mina, the Mountain Queen herself, will come to your trap!

Dragon Scales and Draconic Rewards

Capturing the powerful Storm Dragon mice at Moussu Picchu will reward Dragon Scales which can be used at the shoppes to purchase rewards, or crafted to create unique items.
