==Overview==
 
The '''Living Garden''' is a location in the [[Sandtail Desert]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Baron|Baron/Baroness]] and the [[Living Garden Key]] to enter. The [[Living Garden Key]] is obtained from the [[Cartographer#Muridae Market Cartographer|Cartographer]] at the [[Muridae Market]].
 
  
Mice in the [[Living Garden]] are weak only to [[Hydro]] weapons.  
+
== Overview ==
 +
'''{{PAGENAME}}''' is a hunting location in [[Sandtail Desert]] region.
  
[[Standard Cheese]] will attract most mice in the [[Living Garden]], but [[Duskshade Camembert]] is required for attracting [[Carmine the Apothecary]]. Hunters must use [[Sponge Charm]]s (or [[Blue Double Sponge Charm]]s) and play the [[#Dewdrop Minigame|Dewdrop Minigame]] to attract the [[Thirsty Mouse]].
+
[[Living Garden]], [[Lost City]], [[Sand Dunes]], [[Twisted Garden]], [[Cursed City]], and [[Sand Crypts]] are 6 connected hunting locations, forming the '''Living Garden complex'''.
  
Hunters must collect [[Dewthief Petal]]s and purchase [[Dewthief Camembert]] before they will be able to successfully hunt in the [[Lost City]] or [[Sand Dunes]] locations.
+
They require the minimum [[rank]] of [[Baron|Baron/Baroness]] and the [[Living Garden Key]] to access.
  
===Accessing the Twisted World===
+
'''{{PAGENAME}}''' can only be traveled to when the Hunter's map is in [[#Normal World and Twisted World|Normal state]].
The '''Twisted World''' locations of [[Twisted Garden]], [[Cursed City]], and [[Sand Crypts]] can only be accessed by capturing [[Carmine the Apothecary]] with [[Duskshade Camembert]] in the [[Living Garden]]. Capturing [[Carmine the Apothecary]] will move the Hunter to the [[Twisted Garden]] and the following message is displayed:
 
  
''On catching Carmine the Apothecary, a light flashes and a spell she had prepared in advance erupts! Nightmarish tendrils of dark smoke burst from the ground around me, and before I knew it the world had changed before my very eyes into a wild and twisted version of itself.<br/>I can feel this world itself attempting to reject me and send me back, but I must stay as long as I am able to find out what Carmine is doing in this hidden, dark place.''
+
=== Normal World and Twisted World ===
 +
{{Normal World and Twisted World}}
  
Hunting with any cheese other than [[Duskshade Camembert]] or [[Lunaria Camembert]] in the [[Twisted Garden]] will cause Hunters to be moved to the [[Living Garden]] and the following message will be displayed:
+
=== The Living Garden Sequence ===
 +
In the '''Living Garden complex''', the Hunter follows 6 main steps in sequence.<br>Step '''1''' and '''3''' can be done in '''{{PAGENAME}}'''.
  
''Almost as if an illusion suddenly shattered, the world around me snaps back to normal. Using '''X''' Cheese has brought me back to the normal world.''<br/>
+
{{Living Garden Sequence}}
  
It is possible to catch a mouse from the [[Living Garden]] with [[Standard Cheese]] on the hunt that returns the Hunter to the [[Living Garden]]. However, any '''Sponge''' charm will be consumed without collecting a [[Dewdrop]] from that mouse.<br/>
+
== Dewdrop Minigame ==
If an [[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]] requires capturing the [[M400]] in the [[Living Garden]], Hunters can encounter it in the [[Twisted Garden]], but will be dropped to normal reality for hunting with the wrong cheese.
+
In '''{{PAGENAME}}''', the '''Dewdrop''' mechanics are in effect:
 +
*Using special [[Charms]] makes mice drop [[Dewdrop]]:
 +
**[[Sponge Charm]] makes mice drop 1 [[Dewdrop]] per catch.
 +
**[[Blue Double Sponge Charm]] makes mice drop 2 [[Dewdrop]] per catch.
 +
*[[Dewdrop]] can be collected up to a maximum of 20.
 +
*'''Pouring''' will consume all [[Dewdrop]] and change the state to '''Poured''' for a number of hunts.
 +
**In '''Poured''' state, [[Thirsty Mouse]] can be attracted using [[Standard Cheese]].
 +
**In this state, [[Sponge Charm]] and [[Blue Double Sponge Charm]] will not make mice drop [[Dewdrop]].
 +
**The number of hunts depends on the number of [[Dewdrop]] poured based on the following table:
  
===The Living Garden Sequence===
+
{| style="margin: 1em; text-align: center" class="b_and_p sortable"  
Hunters will need to hunt the areas in the '''Living Garden sub-region''' in a specific order. The following steps outline the basic requirements for accessing and hunting in each location.  Additional information on [[minigame]]s and other activities can be found on the individual location pages.

*Step 6: [[Twisted Garden]]
 
:Hunt with [[Lunaria Camembert]] in the [[Twisted Garden]] to attract [[Twisted Carmine]].
 
 
 
==Living Garden HUD==
 
Hunters can access and track the following using the Heads-Up Display:
 
*The [[#Dewdrop Minigame|Dewdrop Minigame]]
 
*[[Garden Petals and Herbs]]
 
*[[Garden Essences]]
 
*The [[Book of Living Recipes]]
 
 
 
==Dewdrop Minigame==
 
The '''Dewdrop Minigame''' allows Hunters in the [[Living Garden]] to use [[Sponge Charm]]s or [[Blue Double Sponge Charm]]s to gather [[Dewdrop]]s. Pouring [[Dewdrop]]s will provide Hunters with a number of hunts when it is possible to attract the [[Thirsty Mouse]]. The [[Thirsty Mouse]] is '''not''' a guaranteed attraction or catch.
 
 
 
[[Sponge Charm]]s will cause [[Living Garden]] mice to drop 1 [[Dewdrop]] when caught.<br/>
 
[[Blue Double Sponge Charm]]s will cause [[Living Garden]] mice to drop 2 [[Dewdrop]]s when caught.
 
 
 
[[Dewdrop]]s should be collected in batches of 20 for maximum effect. Individual [[Dewdrop]] pours do '''not''' stack. <br/>
 
'''Example:''' Pouring 2 batches of 10 [[Dewdrop]]s each will give the Hunter 10 hunts to attract the [[Thirsty Mouse]] for each batch, or 20 hunts in total. Pouring one batch of 20 [[Dewdrop]]s will give Hunters 35 hunts to attract the [[Thirsty Mouse]].<br/>
 
[[Sponge Charm]]s and [[Blue Double Sponge Charm]]s will not cause mice to drop [[Dewdrop]]s after 20 have been collected or in poured state, so the charm should be disarmed at that point.<br/>

After 20 Dewdrops, the Hunter's bucket is full, and the following message is displayed in the [[Hunter's Journal]]:
+
Finishing collecting 20 [[Dewdrop]] generates a journal entry:
 
:''I've filled up on Dewdrops. Time to pour them out and start attracting Thirsty Mice!''
 
:''I've filled up on Dewdrops. Time to pour them out and start attracting Thirsty Mice!''

===Mice with Special Requirements===
 
*[[Relic Hunter Mouse]] – This mouse visits the [[Living Garden]] on an irregular basis. It does not consume cheese or charms. Hunters must have an [[Ancient Relic]] in their inventory to attract this mouse. The [[Ancient Relic]] will be taken by the [[Relic Hunter Mouse]] in exchange for a [[Relic Hunter Scroll Case]].
 
*[[M400]] – This mouse will sometimes be available in the [[Living Garden]] when Hunters are actively working an [[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]]. It is attracted only to [[Fusion Fondue]] which will not attract any other mice. It drops a wide variety of loot.

=== Hunting Tips by [[Larry]] ===
Initially, Hunters should arm [[Standard Cheese]] to collect [[Dewthief Petal]]s from the mice found in the [[Living Garden]]. Hunters can then use [[Dewthief Petal]]s to purchase [[Dewthief Camembert]].
 
 
 
[[Dewthief Camembert]] is used in the [[Lost City]] to collect [[Dreamfluff Herbs]] and in the [[Sand Dunes]] to collect [[Duskshade Petal]]s. [[Dreamfluff Herbs]] and [[Duskshade Petal]]s are used to purchase [[Duskshade Camembert]].
 
 
 
Hunters can then return to the [[Living Garden]] and arm [[Duskshade Camembert]] to capture [[Carmine the Apothecary]] which opens the '''Twisted World''' and causes Hunters to travel to the [[Twisted Garden]].
 
 
 
Hunters wishing to attract the [[Thirsty Mouse]] must play the [[#Dewdrop Minigame|Dewdrop Minigame]], which requires using [[Sponge Charm]]s or [[Blue Double Sponge Charm]]s to collect [[Dewdrop]]s.
 
 
 
===Location-Specific Effects===
 
====Bases====
 
*[[Aurora Base]] - '''Limited Edition''' - has a chance to generate a random essence (from [[Aleth]] to [[Icuri]])
 
*[[Hothouse Base]] - '''Limited Edition''' - Doubles the range of [[Garden Petals and Herbs]] dropped by mice in this location.
 
*[[Living Base]] - Doubles the range of [[Garden Petals and Herbs]] dropped by mice in this location.

====Charms====
 
*[[Sponge Charm]] - Mice drop 1 [[Dewdrop]] per catch, up to a maximum of 20 [[Dewdrop]]s.
 
*[[Blue Double Sponge Charm]] - Mice drop 2 [[Dewdrop]]s per catch, up to a maximum of 20 [[Dewdrop]]s.
 
 
 
===[[Adventure Book]]===
 
Hunters can [[Obtain a Rift Detector]] by crafting [[Dol Essence]]s and purchasing a [[Rift Detector]] from the [[Living Garden Cartographer]].
 
 
 
Hunters can complete steps to [[Defeat Twisted Carmine]] by catching [[Carmine the Apothecary]] with [[Duskshade Camembert]] to enter the [[Twisted Garden]].
 
 
 
===[[Library Assignments]]===
 
*[[M400 Bait Research Assignment]] - This assignment may require Hunters to track down specific items from [[Living Garden]] mice in order to complete it.
 
*[[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]] -  This assignment may require collecting 1 [[Piece of M400 Intel]] from mice in the [[Living Garden]] and/or capture the [[M400]].
 
 
 
===[[Tournaments]]===
 
[[Living Garden]] mice are worth points during some [[Tournaments]].
 
 
 
===[[Treasure Map]]s===
 
Many mice in the [[Living Garden]] are often found on [[Relic Hunter Treasure Map]]s and [[Living Garden Treasure Map]]s.

Hail, brave hunter!
 
Hail, brave hunter!
  
You know, I spent so much time staring at this place, wondering what could be inside... Would it be exotic monsters, or crazed plants? But now that I'm here, all I really know is that something ''weird'' is going on!

Overview

Living Garden is a hunting location in Sandtail Desert region.

Living Garden, Lost City, Sand Dunes, Twisted Garden, Cursed City, and Sand Crypts are 6 connected hunting locations, forming the Living Garden complex.

They require the minimum rank of Baron/Baroness and the Living Garden Key to access.

Living Garden can only be traveled to when the Hunter's map is in Normal state.

Normal World and Twisted World

At a time, among 6 hunting locations in the Living Garden complex, only 3 can be traveled to. This depends on whether the Hunter's map is in Normal or Twisted state:

The map state can be changed from Normal to Twisted by:

Doing so will generate a journal entry:
On catching Carmine the Apothecary, a light flashes and a spell she had prepared in advance erupts! Nightmarish tendrils of dark smoke burst from the ground around me, and before I knew it the world had changed before my very eyes into a wild and twisted version of itself.
I can feel this world itself attempting to reject me and send me back, but I must stay as long as I am able to find out what Carmine is doing in this hidden, dark place.

The map state can be changed from Twisted to Normal by either:

Doing any of the actions above will generate a journal entry:
Almost as if an illusion suddenly shattered, the world around me snaps back to normal. Using X Cheese has brought me back to the normal world.

The Living Garden Sequence

In the Living Garden complex, the Hunter follows 6 main steps in sequence.
Step 1 and 3 can be done in Living Garden.

Step Location Cheese Used Loot To Obtain
1 Living Garden Standard Cheese Dewthief Petal Dewthief Camembert
2a Lost City Dewthief Camembert Dreamfluff Herbs Duskshade Camembert
2b Sand Dunes Dewthief Camembert Duskshade Petal
3 Living Garden Duskshade Camembert Access to Twisted World
4 Twisted Garden Duskshade Camembert Graveblossom Petal Graveblossom Camembert
5a Cursed City Graveblossom Camembert Plumepearl Herbs Lunaria Camembert
5b Sand Crypts Graveblossom Camembert Lunaria Petal
6 Twisted Garden Lunaria Camembert Living Chest Fel Essence
Gur Essence
Fresh Twisted Garden Soil

Dewdrop Minigame

In Living Garden, the Dewdrop mechanics are in effect:

Dewdrop poured Number of hunts
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 7
8 8
9 9
10 10
11 12
12 14
13 16
14 18
15 20
16 22
17 24
18 26
19 28
20 35

Finishing collecting 20 Dewdrop generates a journal entry:

I've filled up on Dewdrops. Time to pour them out and start attracting Thirsty Mice!

Pouring generates a journal entry:

I poured out my collected Dewdrops, and started attracting some thirsty mice for the next X hunts!
I should unequip my Sponge Charms and save them for later.

When the hunts run out and state switches back from Poured to normal, a journal entry is generated:

With the ground now dry, the Thirsty mice have retreated.

Heads-Up Display

The Hunter can access and track the following in the HUD:

  • Dewdrop Minigame
    • The number of Dewdrop is displayed
    • There is a Pour button, which the Hunter can click to switch state to Poured
Clicking it will pop out a confirmation message:
Are you sure you want to pour out your collected Dewdrops?
If you do, you'll attract some very thirsty mice for 0 hunt!
Click Cancel to cancel
Click Confirm to switch state

Mice

All mice found in Living Garden are part of the Living Garden Mice group.

Only Hydro power type is effective against the mice here.

Standard Cheese can attract all mice except Carmine the Apothecary which requires Duskshade Camembert. Thirsty Mouse can only be attracted in Poured state.

Most mice here can drop Dewthief Petal which can be used to purchase Dewthief Camembert to hunt in Lost City and Sand Dunes.

Catching Carmine the Apothecary will transfer the Hunter to Twisted Garden and enable traveling to Cursed City and Sand Crypts.

Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

Hail, brave hunter!

You know, I spent so much time staring at this place, wondering what could be inside... Would it be exotic monsters, or crazed plants? But now that I'm here, all I really know is that something weird is going on!

If you watch carefully, you can observe tiny raids from other mouse tribes coming to the garden and stealing the Garden Essences that accumulate here. You can gather your own as well by trapping the mice that reside here, and then put them to use here in the Garden!

If you check the shop, you'll see that you can purchase Sponge Charms for Aleth Essences and use those to collect dewdrops. Collect enough dewdrops and you can cover the ground in moisture, attracting Thirsty Mice who drop even more and better Garden Essences!

While you're here, make sure to collect as many Dewthief Petals as you can - you'll need them to buy cheese to hunt with later on!

Oh, and don't forget to check out the Book of Living Recipes to find out all the incredible new things you can make out of these Garden Essences!

Perhaps much later, you'll find a cheese you can use to come back here and catch rare and powerful mice!
