== Overview ==
 
== Overview ==
The '''Seasonal Garden''' is a location in the [[Rodentia]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Lord|Lord/Lady]] and [[Zugzwang's Scarf]] to enter. [[Zugzwang's Scarf]] can be obtained from a [[Dragon's Chest]] or as loot from [[Icewing]].
+
'''{{PAGENAME}}''' is a hunting location in [[Rodentia]] region.<br>
 +
It requires the [[rank]] of [[Lord|Lord/Lady]] and the [[Zugzwang's Scarf]] to access.
  
The mice available in the [[Seasonal Garden]] are determined by the current '''season'''. The season changes every '''80 hours''' and the current season is reflected in the image shown on the [[Travel]] page.
+
[[#Mice|Mice]] available in this location is determined by [[#Seasons|Season]], which changes every 80 hours.<br>
 +
The Hunter collects '''Key Shards''' here to craft [[Zugzwang's Tower Key]] to unlock [[Zugzwang's Tower]] location.<br>
 +
[[Amplifier]] gained from catching mice here can be used to effectively hunt in [[Zugzwang's Tower]].
  
The mice found during each season have a different primary [[Power Type]] as their weakness, but all mice found in the [[Seasonal Garden]] have some weakness to [[Tactical]] weapons.<br>
+
This location will be locked when there is an on-going progress in [[Zugzwang's Tower]].<br>
*'''Winter''' - [[Hydro]]
+
It can be unlocked again and the Hunter transferred to by either:
*'''Spring''' - [[Physical]]
+
*Retreating from the tower
*'''Summer''' - [[Tactical]]
+
*Catching a [[Mystic King]] or [[Technic King]] with neither [[Checkmate Cheese]] nor [[Stalemate Charm]] armed
*'''Fall''' - [[Shadow]]
+
*Catching a [[Chess Master]] without [[Stalemate Charm]]
  
Hunters wishing to enter [[Zugzwang's Tower]] must craft the [[Zugzwang's Tower Key]] using the four '''key shards''' found as loot in the '''Seasonal Garden'''.
+
== Gameplay Mechanics ==
 +
=== Seasons ===
 +
In '''{{PAGENAME}}''', a '''Season''' mechanic is in effect:
 +
*There are 4 seasons, each has its own mouse sub-group and the corresponding power type effectiveness.
 +
*Each season lasts for 80 hours.
 +
*In each season, there is a mouse that can drop a '''Key Shard''' to craft [[Zugzwang's Tower Key]] to unlock [[Zugzwang's Tower]].

===Tower Amplifier===
+
=== [[Tower Amplifier]] ===
Catching [[Seasonal Soldiers|Seasonal Garden Mice]] charges the Hunter's [[Tower Amplifier]]. A fully charged [[Tower Amplifier]] is recommended for Hunters to enter the [[Zugzwang's Tower]].
+
An '''Amplifier''' mechanic affects the gameplay in '''{{PAGENAME}}''' and [[Zugzwang's Tower]].
 +
*Catching [[#Mice|mice]] in this location increases the amplifier.
 +
**The amplifier gained depends on mouse.
 +
**There are some [[#Weapons|Weapons]] and [[#Charms|Charms]] that can boost the amplifier gained.
 +
*Failing to attract decreases the amplifier by 3%.
 +
*The maximum amplifier is determined by the Hunter's [[rank]]:
 +
**[[Lord|Lord/Lady]] can charge the amplifier to '''150%'''.
 +
**[[Baron|Baron/Baroness]] can charge the amplifier to '''160%'''.
 +
**[[Count|Count/Countess]] and above can charge the amplifier to '''175%'''.
  
Traveling out of the [[Seasonal Garden]] will not affect the [[Tower Amplifier]]'s percentage.
+
== Heads-Up Display ==
 +
In '''{{PAGENAME}}''', the HUD shows:
 +
*An image indicating current [[#Seasons|season]]
 +
::''The '''season''' and the types of mice you can catch in the garden change every few days, so be sure to check back often!''
 +
*The [[Amplifier]] bar showing the percentage
 +
::''Your '''Tower Amplifier''' boosts your trap's power inside '''Zugzwang's Tower'''. Catching a mouse in the Garden raises the Amplifier's charge, while failing to attract lowers it.''
 +
::''Your amplifier will max out at '''[X]'''%.''
  
====Charging the Tower Amplifier====
+
== Mice ==
Hunters ranked [[Lord|Lord/Lady]] can charge their [[Amplifier]] to '''150%'''.<br>
+
All mice found in '''{{PAGENAME}}''' are part of the [[Seasonal Soldiers]] mouse group.
Hunters ranked [[Baron|Baron/Baroness]] can charge their [[Amplifier]] to '''160%'''.<br>
 
Hunters ranked [[Count|Count/Countess]] and above can charge their [[Amplifier]] to '''175%'''.
 
  
Every catch of a [[Seasonal Soldiers|Seasonal Garden Mouse]] will charge the Hunter's [[Tower Amplifier]] from 1% to 6%, depending on the mouse captured.<br>
+
=== Winter ===
Every '''Failure To Attract''' will reduce the charge of the Hunter's [[Tower Amplifier]] by 3%.<br>
+
All mice found during '''Winter''' are part of [[:Category:Seasonal Soldiers (Winter)|Winter]] sub-group.
Failing to catch a mouse has no effect on the [[Tower Amplifier]]'s charge.
 
 
 
===Seasonal Garden HUD===
 
The [[Seasonal Garden]] Heads-Up Display shows the current season, the maximum charge available to the Hunter, and the current level of charge as both a percentage and as a status bar.
 
 
 
Mousing over the [[Tower Amplifier]] reveals the following message:
 
:''Your '''Tower Amplifier''' boosts your trap's power inside '''Zugzwang's Tower'''. Catching a mouse in the Garden raises the Amplifier's charge, while failing to attract lowers it.''
 
:''Your amplifier will max out at '''[X]'''%.''
 
 
 
Mousing over the current season reveals the following message:
 
:''The '''season''' and the types of mice you can catch in the garden change every few days, so be sure to check back often!''
 
  
== Seasonal Garden Mice ==
+
They can be attracted using any [[Standard Cheese]].
The mice found in the [[Seasonal Garden]] are all part of the [[Seasonal Soldiers]] group. All these mice have some degree of weakness to [[Tactical]] weapons, but the season during which the mice are encountered determines the primary [[Power Type]] weakness.
 
  
[[Standard Cheese]] will attract all mice found in the [[Seasonal Garden]], except the [[Spring Familiar]] and [[Fall Familiar]] which are only attracted to {{SB}}.
+
[[Hydro]] power type is very effective against these mice.<br>
 +
[[Tactical]] power type is effective against them.<br>
 +
All other types are ineffective.

===Mice with Special Requirements===
+
== Hunting Strategy ==
*[[Relic Hunter Mouse]] – This mouse visits the [[Seasonal 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]] if the maximum of the item is not reached yet.
+
=== Hunting Tips by [[Larry]] ===
:*Catching a [[Relic Hunter Mouse]] has no effect on the [[Tower Amplifier]].
+
Welcome to the Seasonal Garden, MouseHunter!
*[[M400]] – This mouse will sometimes be available in the [[Seasonal 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.
 
:*Catching the [[M400]] will have no effect on the [[Tower Amplifier]].
 
*Catching a [[Glitchpaw]] or [[Lucky Mouse]] in the [[Seasonal Garden]] will have no effect on the [[Tower Amplifier]].
 
  
==Hunting Strategy==
+
I hope you brought a change of clothes with you, because the seasons around here shift every few days, bringing new weather, and new mice to trap.
[[Standard Cheese]] will attract all mice found in the [[Seasonal Garden]], except the [[Spring Familiar]] and [[Fall Familiar]], which are only attracted to {{SB}}.
 
  
Each '''season''' in the [[Seasonal Garden]] provides a different group of mice to capture, with different primary weaknesses.
+
If you're looking for a good general strategy, a tactical trap will perform well in any season. Most seasons also have another, secret weakness for Hunters to discover on their own, so experiment with different trap setups, and see what works. Be sure to keep an eye out for shards of the key to Zugzwang's Tower, as well- there's one shard hidden in every season.

*'''Spring''' - [[Physical]]
 
*'''Summer''' - [[Tactical]]

Zugzwang's seasonal garden is the perfect destination for those who can't make up their mind about the weather. Every few days, the seasons shift, bringing with them a new crop of mice with different powers. Keep an eye out for the shards of an old key- they might provide the way into that mysterious locked tower.

Overview

Seasonal Garden is a hunting location in Rodentia region.
It requires the rank of Lord/Lady and the Zugzwang's Scarf to access.

Mice available in this location is determined by Season, which changes every 80 hours.
The Hunter collects Key Shards here to craft Zugzwang's Tower Key to unlock Zugzwang's Tower location.
Amplifier gained from catching mice here can be used to effectively hunt in Zugzwang's Tower.

This location will be locked when there is an on-going progress in Zugzwang's Tower.
It can be unlocked again and the Hunter transferred to by either:

Gameplay Mechanics

Hunting Strategy

Hunting Tips by Larry

Welcome to the Seasonal Garden, MouseHunter!

I hope you brought a change of clothes with you, because the seasons around here shift every few days, bringing new weather, and new mice to trap.

If you're looking for a good general strategy, a tactical trap will perform well in any season. Most seasons also have another, secret weakness for Hunters to discover on their own, so experiment with different trap setups, and see what works. Be sure to keep an eye out for shards of the key to Zugzwang's Tower, as well- there's one shard hidden in every season.

As you catch mice in the garden, your Tower Amplifier will increase. Failing to attract mice in the garden will cause your Tower Amplifier to decrease.

When your amplifier is charged, it gives a power bonus to your trap when hunting in Zugzwang's Tower. When hunting in the tower your Tower Amplifier's charge will decrease until it runs out or you leave the tower. Make sure to get a full charge before going in, because if you leave the tower, your amplifier will reset to zero.
