Explore Queso Geyser
The King's Royal Geologists have completed their survey of Queso Geyser, allowing hunters with the Queso Geyser Replica Clay Model to access the geyser as a new hunting location!
The frequent eruptions of molten queso have attracted all sorts of powerful Draconic mice to the area! Working with Larry, the King's Geologists have devised a plan for luring these high-flying beasts towards a trap. Three words: Massive. Geyser. Corks.
Collect Cork Bark held by various mice native to the geyser to construct an impressively-sized cork to stick in the geyser. Then, defend your newly constructed cork from mice to allow the pressure to build to massive levels and trigger impressive eruptions of liquid cheese.
Once an eruption occurs, powerful breeds of Draconic mice will swoop down from the sky towards the airborne queso and come within range of your trap. The constant flow of molten cheese will make collecting loot too dangerous, however, each item a dragon drops will go into a nest that you can safely loot once the eruption subsides.
Some members of the King's Royal Council have expressed concern over the idea of constructing enormous corks to temporarily seal the geyser and build cheesy pressure in an already unstable section of ground, but the geologists have assured us that it's *perfectly* safe...
Types of Geyser Corks
There are four different varieties of cork you can construct to withstand different levels of pressure and, as a result, trigger differently-sized queso eruptions. The larger the eruption, the larger (and more lucrative) Draconic mice you'll attract!
Using spicier flavours of queso cheese will attract more powerful dragons that drop more cork, increase pressure more, and are more lucrative to hunt. With a little experimentation, you will find which flavour of queso works best for each circumstance.
Made from Cork Bark
Collect Cork Bark in the area to construct this lightwight cork capable of withstanding a pressure of 35 kPA to trigger a small eruption.
Made from Cork Bark and Rubber
Collect a single Congealed Rubber during a small eruption to create a medium-sized cork. These corks can withstand pressures up to 175 kPA to trigger a medium eruption.
Made from Cork Bark and Geyserite
Collect a unique rock-like material called Geyserite during a medium eruption to create a large-sized cork. These corks can withstand a much greater pressure of 1,000 kPA to trigger a large eruption.
Made from Cork Bark and Tungsten
Tungsten is an extremely dense material that can be collected during a large eruption to create an epic-sized cork. These corks can withstand a whopping 3,000 kPA to trigger an epic eruption!
Looting a Dragon Nest and Rewards
During an eruption, the flow of molten queso makes it too dangerous to collect loot. Instead, a nest fills with loot with each capture. After each eruption subsides you can collect all the loot dropped by the various Draconic mice inside the nest and find all sorts of rewards. You'll find Bland Queso, various Spice Leaves, trap components, and other supplies!

This mysterious item exists only as a rumor spread by the local trapsmith. The trapsmith at Queso Geyser claims this rare and powerful item could be used to create an extremely powerful and high-luck Draconic trap. However, the exact design remains a mystery.
Should you uncover the Kalor'ignis Rib, be sure to visit the Trapsmith where you can offer to help and begin a quest to research this mysterious Draconic trap design.
Magic Nest Dust
Adds +5 items to each nest
Before looting a nest, you can sprinkle this dust to magically add 5 items to the nest! Dusting a nest will add Cork Materials, Amber Queso, Bland Queso, Spice Leaves, and final random item. Dusting nests after larger eruptions will reward greater quantities of higher-tier items.
- Adds five items to nests!
Magical Properties of Wild Tonic
The powerful elixir native to Queso Canyon has a number of unique effects on the geyser that you can use to your advantage!
Double Cork Bark
Enable your Wild Tonic while collecting Cork Bark to double each drop! Pair your tonic with spicier flavours of Queso to maximize your drops!
Double Pressure Gain
Once you construct a cork you'll have a limited amount of time to reach its maximum pressure before the cork degrades. Enable your Wlid Tonic while building pressure to froth up the underground queso and double the pressure gained with each hunt!
Bonus Nest Loot
Enable your Wild Tonic during an eruption to shake loose some extra loot with each catch and increase the size of the loot nest!
- Endless uses!
