This celestial event of festive proportions has crashed into Gnawnia! Although the original origin of this cheer-spreading comet are unknown, hunters from across the Kingdom are calling its arrival cause for festive celebration!

Description and Requirements

The Festive Comet is a special location available exclusively during The Great Winter Hunt '09. There are no special requirements for hunters to enter this area. Mice are unable to steal gold, cheese, or points in the Festive Comet.

Shops

There is no Trapsmith, Cheese Shoppe, or Cartographer at the Festive Comet. A gift shop known as the Festive Gift Shoppe was introduced along with this location.

New Trap and Base

Several mice are now dropping plans for a festive trap and base. The Gingerbread House Surprise requires 1 x Gingerbread House Plans, 10 x Candies, 5 x Icing Sugar, and 7 x Plank of Gingerbread to craft. The plans for the base have not yet been found.

Hunting Strategy

In this location, there are mice of four different power types (Hydro, Physical, Forgotten and Tactical). There are currently no traps that are effective against both Forgotten and Tactical mice, so the hunter needs to pick the trap with the power type of their most desired mice. Alternatively, hunters may consider using the luckiest trap available to them. SUPER|brie+ and the Gingerbread cheese are the only cheese that are consistently effective in attracting the mice that are exclusive in this location, though SUPER|brie+ seems to be better in obtaining the Christmas Tree Mouse (see the main Christmas Tree Mouse article). The use of conventional cheese such as Brie does not attract the festive mice as much, and attraction rate is rather low, but the Abominable Snow Mouse is still attracted to your trap.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Festive Comet, MouseHunter!

This massive snowy comet smashed into Gnawnia resulting in a massive explosion of candy canes and snow!

There are all sorts of festive looking mice here! To attract a festive mouse to your trap I suggest using SUPER|brie+ or Gingerbread cheese. You'll find that both work quite well here!

A few resident mice here have been spotted carrying gifts... twelve to be exact. I have a strange suspicion that collecting all the different items will prove to have a benefit!

Watch out for errant snowballs and happy holiday hunting!
