Just when you thought you understood and could deal with the horrors of the Gnawnian Rift, a new rift opens up! Tendrils of mist curl along the ground, and the terrifying cries of powerful mice echo all around. Do you have what it takes to take it on?


Burroughs Rift is a hunting location in Rift Plane region.

It requires the minimum rank of Duke/Duchess and the Rift Detector to access.

Mouse attraction pool is affected by Mist level and cheese used.

The main goal of this location is to catch Menace of the Rift to obtain a Null Gauntlet.

Mist Mechanic

In Burroughs Rift, a Mist Mechanic is in effect. The mist level is between 0 - 20.

The Hunter can choose whether or not misting.

  • When misting, a Mist Canister is consumed per hunt, and the mist level increase by 1 per hunt.
  • When not misting, the mist level decrease by 1 per hunt.

The Mist level determines the attraction pool:

Certain changes in mist level and Mist Canister supply generate additional journal entries:

  • Mist level increases from 0 to 1:
I have opened my first Mist Canister and mice have begun to emerge from within the mist...
  • Mist level increases from 17 to 18:
Nearly there! There is almost enough mist in the air that the biggest and strongest mice will start appearing!
I need to be sure I'm ready to face them and have the strongest trap setup possible!
Oh no! I've almost released enough mist to attract the biggest and strongest mice!
I should turn off my mister before they do serious damage to my trap!
  • Mist level decreases from 1 to 0:
The last of the mist dissipated from the atmosphere.
I should obtain more Mist Canisters and begin misting again.
I ran out of Mist Canisters and stopped releasing mist.
I should use String Cheese to hunt mice that drop Mist Canisters in order to replenish my supply.

Heads-Up Display

The HUD is divided into 3 smaller parts:


The HUD tracks the Hunter's inventory of:

The Hunter can arm those cheese and brew those potion from the HUD.


The HUD displays:

  • The Hunter's inventory of Mist Canister
  • A button to mist/unmist with a tooltip on what to expect when clicking the button:
  • When not misting:
Click to start releasing mist!
While misting, you'll release one Mist Canister into the air per hunt. Try to keep your Mist Meter in the green zone to attract mice worth the most points, gold, and loot!
  • When misting:
Click to stop releasing mist!
While not misting, one mist will dissipate per hunt. Try to keep your Mist Meter in the green zone to attract mice worth the most points, gold, and loot!


The HUD displays an image of some mice in the attraction pool depends on the mist level and cheese used.


All mice found in Burroughs Rift are part of the Burroughs Rift sub-group of Rift Walkers group, except for the Tomb Exhumer which is an Event Mouse.

These mice have Rift as their main power type weakness. Other power types can still be used but are less effective.

Mist level and cheese used affect mouse attraction pool and in turn affects loot drops. Undead String Emmental attracts the same mice regardless of mist level.

Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

I swear, it's not cold, but I did get a chill just now! This place is spooky!

First up, you'll want to arm some string cheese and collect Mist Canisters from local mice. Then, start opening them up to attract spookier, stronger mice. Pay close attention to your mist meter while you're hunting. Not enough mist and you won't attract any mice worth catching. Too much mist and you'll attract big bruisers that are too much to handle for now!

Hunt in the mist for a while and you'll start collecting Terre Ricotta potions. The cheese you create from these will allow you to hunt new and scarier mice. These new mice will occasionally drop Polluted Parmesan potions, which allow you to create the rarest and most dangerous cheese in this rift!

When using Polluted Parmesan, you'll want to hunt only in the deepest areas of the mist, and try to catch The Menace Of The Rift. He has a fantastic treasure - a Null Gauntlet - which allows you to equip Rift Vacuum Charms. These charms siphon tiny amounts of energy from rift mice and condense it into Calcified Rift Mist - the main ingredient in creating rift charms!

Finally, once you've collected your Null Gauntlet and created some powerful charms, it's time to go back into the depths of the mist. The mice there drop Rift Circuitry, which you can use to craft two new powerful Rift Power traps and turn the tables on the rift mice!

It's a long list and a tall order, hunter, and the mice here are more powerful than most, but I know you can do it, so have at it!
