Iceberg, dead ahead!

Teeming with mice, and on a collision course with the beaches directly outside Gnawnia's castle, this Iceberg must be stopped at all costs!

You must be the rank of Lord/Lady to travel to this dangerous area.

Description and Requirements

The Iceberg is a location in the Rodentia region requiring a minimum rank of Lord/Lady and Icebreaker License to enter. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.

The Iceberg is 1,800 feet deep, split among the stages: 300 feet of Treacherous Tunnels, 300 feet of Brutal Bulwark, 1,000 feet of Bombing Run, and 200 feet of The Mad Depths. Hunters advance or move back certain distances (listed in the tables below) by catching or failing to catch mice. The goal is to advance to the bottom of the iceberg and catch Icewing. Hunters completing the task within a certain number of hunts receive bonuses:

424 hunts Supply Chest
349 hunts Strongbox
274 hunts Treasure Chest

After 275 hunts the hunters have an option to retreat back to the start. Traveling from this location does not reset the progress.

Shops

These are the shops that can be found in the Iceberg:

Icewing's Invasion Mice

Generals

Generals appear at the end of each zone and catching one allows a hunter to proceed further. They can alternatively be bypassed if a hunter uses a Drill Charge to enter the next zone. Failure to catch a General 'locks' that mouse for the following two hunts, so only that particular General is available to be encountered. After three failures the mouse population includes all 4 Generals once more, and hunters may encounter a different General. Upon the capture of a General, hunters' progress in the Iceberg is saved, and they cannot be pushed back to a previous zone. The following message will be displayed on the Journal at the end of a zone:

I caught an X Mouse and advanced through the Iceberg, but was stopped by a General! A challenge awaits!

Hunting Strategy

Standard cheese such as Brie or Gouda may be used in this location. The mice in this location are weak to Hydro-type weapons. Hunters can purchase bags of Sticky or Wax charms in the General Store, which have special effects on Bergling mouse subclass. After obtaining sufficient amount of Bottled Cold Fusion, hunters may craft bases with special effects on other subclasses: Magnet Base, Spiked Base, Remote Detonator Base, and Hearthstone Base.

Hunters can use a Drill to advance additional distance; for the best effect, the hunters may wish to wait on drilling until they have obtained all the craftable bases, and make the attempt for the Treasure Chest.

Hunting tips by Larry

Our brave and daring scouts have reported that the Iceberg is broken up into five distinct zones with different mice in each. The further down you go, the more dangerous it becomes!

Treacherous Tunnels: Tunnel Rats roam these halls, ever-expanding the Iceberg's tunnel network. Their tools can be put to use making your own tunnels, so catch as many of them as you can!

Brutal Bulwark: Dangerous Brutes live here, and they'll knock you silly! At the very least, they'll knock you back a few paces, slowing you drastically. If only you could find a way to stop them...

Bombing Run: Bomb Squad mice use high explosives to carve huge caverns and trip up intruders. But if you could turn their bombs against them, you could certainly speed up your descent.

The Mad Depths: Mad Zealot mice prowl here. They are both hard to catch and powerful – they will knock you back if you don't catch them. Avoiding them would be best.

Icewing's Lair: Icewing herself commands the Iceberg's deployment from here, deep in the heart of the Iceberg. Be brave in facing her, hunter, as she will give no quarter!

If you check the shops, there's loads of new gear to help you combat these new dangers, including Wax Charms and Sticky Charms, which have specific uses against Bergling mice, whom you'll find in every zone.

Floating in the path of the Iceberg are three bonus chests holding supplies for the icy invasion. If you can defeat the Iceberg before it reaches them, their contents will be yours! If the Iceberg crashes into them, their contents will be lost to you as they float ashore to be used by the invaders, so work quickly for the most rewards!
