Year of the Rat

27 December 2019

Light your lantern for double or TRIPLE loot!

Lunar Rat Lantern

Celebrate the Year of the Rat by hunting the new Costumed Rat Mouse and obtaining the magical Rat Lunar Lantern! Once you've obtained the lantern, you'll be able to light Lunar Lantern Candles to double loot drops ANYWHERE in the Kingdom, or better yet, burn Red Lunar Lantern Candles to earn TRIPLE loot drops!

To get started, head to one of twelve "stockpile" locations throughout the Kingdom where you can collect Dumpling Cheese and attract Costumed Zodiac mice. Once you've captured 10 unique costumed mice, you'll be able to encounter the Costumed Rat Mouse which drops the Rat Lunar Lantern. Then, keep hunting with Dumpling Cheese to collect candles and take your loot collecting to new heights!

  • 100 Nian Gao'da Cheese
Find Red Candles!
  • 30 Red Lunar Lantern Candles
Triple loot drops!

Other Benefits of the Rat Lunar Lantern

Each candle you burn will raise your lantern into the sky earning you bonus luck and other rewards! Burning a regular Lunar Lantern Candle will raise your lantern by 1 foot while burning a Red Lunar Lantern Candle will raise your lantern by 2 feet. Every ten feet your lantern ascends will earn you +1 Trap Luck which is active while your lantern is lit until the end of the event. Additionally, at some heights you'll also earn unique item rewards!

Your lantern can reach a maximum height of 500 feet which provides an impressive +50 Luck while burning any type of candle!

Head to the Camp section to view your lantern track progress and claim rewards as you reach their height requirements. Make sure to check the App Store or Google Play to ensure your mobile app is up to date to celebrate all the Year of the Rat has to offer!
