Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

Ahoy there hunter and welcome to the Prologue Pond!

This pond seems to be a quite a bit deeper than your typical pond and also has an especially strange (and somewhat dangerous) ecosystem!

Before you push off from the dock, make sure to collect some Ingenuity Grubs from the mice roaming the shoreline. You can use these colourful critters to create Grubbeen Cheese. Then just arm your Grubbeen and start fishing!

At first, you'll find that these odd aquatic mice only drop Pond Pennies. You'll need to use these Pond Pennies to create Brainstorm Chum and once you start scattering Brainstorm Chum while hunting, the mice will get so excited that they'll drop Cleverness Clams instead!

With Cleverness Clams, you can make Clamembert Cheese and if you scatter Brainstorm Chum with that cheese armed then you'll start pulling up the coveted Inspiration Ink!

There is a third type of cheese here too called Stormy Clamembert but be very careful with that one. The locals say that it will lure a very dangerous creature up from the deepest, darkest part of the pond! You're gonna need a bigger boat!
