Happy Lunar New Year

31 January 2022

Celebrate the new Year of the Tiger and earn DOUBLE or TRIPLE loot!
Raise your Lantern to celebrate the Year of the Tiger!

Year of the Tiger

The Year of the Tiger is upon us and it's time to kick off the new year with heaps of luck and loot! The Lunar Lantern has returned along with the lunar event mice at twelve locations across Gnawnia!

Claim the Tiger Lantern, collect and light Lunar Lantern Candles, and join the celebration to earn double or triple loot anywhere in the Kingdom!

How to Celebrate

Stockpile Locations

Travel to any one of these stockpile locations. You can refer to the Lunar New Year Heads-Up Display to view this list along with a travel button to take you to a specific location immediately.

Town of Gnawnia Laboratory Great Gnarled Tree Dojo
S.S. Huntington IV Claw Shot City Muridae Market Gnawnia Rift
Fungal Cavern Moussu Picchu Queso River Islands' Launch Pad
Claim the Tiger Lunar Lantern!

Upon arrival at a stockpile location you can claim the Tiger Lunar Lantern immediately via the event Heads-Up Display!

Gather Dumpling Cheese

At stockpile locations, you can gather Dumpling Cheese by just hunting the regular mice in the area with standard cheese.

Gather Lantern Candles from Lunar Event Mice

Gone are the days where you needed to catch these critters in a specific order! Gather Lunar Lantern candles from any of the event mice while hunting with Dumpling Cheese at Stockpile Locations. If you hunt with the premium Nian Gao'da cheese you will also find some of the coveted Red Lunar Lantern Candles.

Light the Candles and soar into prosperity!

Now it's time for the fun part! With the Tiger Lantern you claimed, you can begin lighting these candles and reaping their rewards!

When your lantern is lit with Lunar Lantern Candles, you will find DOUBLE loot from mice anywhere in the Kingdom! And if you're lighting Red Lunar Lantern Candles then you'll find TRIPLE loot!

The amazing power of the lantern and candles doesn't end there. While you hunt with your lantern lit, it will rise into the air in search of more rewards. Each hunt with a Lunar Lantern candle lit will raise your lantern by one foot and each hunt with a Red Lunar Lantern candle lit will raise it by two feet!

Every ten feet that your lantern ascends, you'll receive a +1 Luck bonus to your trap that will apply whenever the candles are burning. The bonus is cumulative so the higher you go, the more luck you'll get!

Every thirty feet that your lantern ascends, you'll receive an extra reward in addition to the +1 Luck and the rewards keep getting better the higher you ascend! Be sure to check out the Heads-Up Display to get a glimpse of all the valuable items that await you along the reward track!

Lunar New Year Items

The various shops at stockpile locations now stock Lunar New Year themed items that can be purchased with Lunar Candles! Keep an eye out for some unique and festive airship parts and trap skins!

The Lantern Lighter Scroll Case is also returning to cartographers at stockpile locations. Use it to speed up your candle collecting!

Valentine's Matchmaker

Love is in the air! From February 10 to 15 you will occasionally encounter some lovestruck mice during your hunts. These special Valentine's mice will occasionally appear as a bonus hunt after a successful catch and will not consume any cheese or charms! They do however drop some lovely Valentine's loot!

The Valentine's Matchmaker Mini-Event will run from February 10 to 15

Celebration Supplies

The King has expanded his collection of offerings with a variety of bountiful bundles to help you raise your lantern to new heights!

New for this year, the King has decreed that all candles will now be sold in packs that can be given to friends or bought and sold on the Marketplace to promote the festive spirit of sharing prosperity!

The Lunar New Year event will end on February 15, 2022

As of February 15, you will no longer be able to collect Dumpling cheese or Lunar Lantern Candles at stockpile locations.

You will also no longer be able to light any Lunar Lantern candles and therefore won't receive the Lantern luck bonus, loot bonus, or be able to make any more progress on the reward track.

You will still be able to claim any unclaimed track rewards and spend any unused candles on the Lunar New Year specific items in the shops of stockpile locations until February 22.

5 January 2022

Last chance to send out your golems!
Golem Parts, Pecan Pecorino, and other items can no longer be found as loot.

Slushy Conditions Slow Down Express

The first signs of slush have appeared as the Festive Comet slowly begins to melt. Ol' King Coal is becoming deterred by the constant meddling from hunters driving his profits deeper and deeper into the red. The muddy, less-than-festive ground conditions have caused mice to no longer carry Great Winter Hunt supplies.

Pecan Pecorino, Golem Parts, Sugar Cookies, and other festive items can no longer be found as loot drops.

Sending Out Final Golems

Hunters can continue to send out Snow Golems until Tuesday, January 11. Have more parts than you think you'll be able to use before January 11? Smash extra Golem Parts into Animated Snow which can be spent at the General Store to purchase Festive Jingle Bells. These magical, one-time-use bells will help hastily return a golem, allowing you to quickly use up those excess parts!

25 Festive Jingle Bells
INSTANTLY return a golem!

Magical Winter Hunt Holiday Hat
Make final golems count

Reminder: Spend Festive Sugar Cookies

Changing your HUD decorations will still affect which mice you attract however, decoration-themed mice will no longer drop Festive Sugar Cookies. Make sure to take stock of your final count of Sugar Cookies and then browse the various shops at the Festive Comet where you can spend them on all sorts of rewards!

Reminder: Before the start of the next Great Winter Hunt any Golem Parts and Animated Snow in your inventory will melt away, M.I.L.K. and Cookies will evaporate and crumble, and any Recovered Gifts will be collected by the King. Make sure to use all of these resources up before January 11!

The Great Winter Hunt will end completely on
Tuesday, January 11, 2022
Hunters can continue to send out Snow Golems until the event ends completely.
After the event ends, any Golem Parts and Animated Snow in your inventory will melt away, M.I.L.K. and Cookies will evaporate and crumble, and any Compressed Cinnamon will be collected by the King.

Make sure to use up all of these resources before January 11!
