Jaqueline the Spice Merchant Returns to Queso Canyon
The travelling spice merchant Jaqueline, or "Big Jaq" as she's known to friends, has once again setup her Spice Shack in the Queso Canyon! Visit any General Store in the areas of the Queso Canyon region to browse her popup shop where all sorts of spicy deals are available.
While Big Jaq is visiting, there are also some 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 (she won't mind you keeping the kegs for yourself). 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 the Queso Geyser! Fortunately, the kegs are heat-resistant and buoyant enough to safely 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.
