Big Jaq's Spice Shack
23 July 2019
Queso Kegs, Blooming Spice Plants, and Leaf Exchange!
Jaqueline the Spice Merchant Visits Queso Canyon
The traveling spice merchant Jaqueline, or "Big Jaq" as she's known to friends, has setup her Spice Shack in the Queso Canyon. Visit any General Store in the areas of the Queso Canyon region to visit her popup shop where all sorts of spicy deals are available.
While Big Jaq is visiting, there are also some new unique loot drops to find! Boost your Bland Queso collection by recovering Kegs of Bland Queso from mice throughout the Queso Canyon region.
Kegs of Bland Queso
Big Jaq's Bland Queso Kegs have been stolen! Catch mice in Queso Canyon for a chance to get a cheesy reward. The Kegs come in three sizes and you can use Wild Tonic to shake loose double the kegs when mice drop them!
- 250 Bland Queso
- 500 Bland Queso
- 1,500 Bland Queso
- 150 Wild Tonic
- DOUBLE keg drops with Wild Tonic!
These Kegs of Queso can be collected anywhere in the region, including Queso Geyser! The kegs are fortunately heat-resistant and buoyant enough to safetly float in the liquid hot queso at the geyser. As a result, the kegs will appear as loot drops directly from mice and not in nests.
