A sudden burst of pollution from the Laboratory has resulted in this hideous Toxic Spill! The Hunter's Title required to enter is dependant on the current contamination level. As hunters clean the area and lower the contamination, less experienced hunters will be permitted to enter. Hunters are not allowed in the area when there is no pollution to clean up.
Description and Requirements
The Laboratory is a location in the Burroughs region requiring a minimum rank of Duke/Duchess (although there are indications it may be opened to ranks as low as Hero) and the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece to enter. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.
These are the shops that can be found in the Toxic Spill:
- Cheese Shoppe
- General Store
Toxic Spill Mice
Hunting tips by Larry
YUCK! This Toxic Spill is disgusting! Full of sludge, goo, grime, and scrap!
The Toxic Spill has had dastardly effects on the mice here! Some have grown to massive proportion, while others have gained powerful abilities! These mice are incredibly challenging adversaries!
The severity of the spill is determined by its contamination level. High levels of contamination are where the most powerful mice reside, while lower levels are home to weaker breeds. The contamination level also determines what title a hunter requires in order to enter the area. As mice are captured, the contamination level will slowly drop, making the area safe enough for less experienced hunters.
In order to lure the Polluted mice to your trap, you'll need a more pungent version of Radioactive Blue Cheese called Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese. This bait can be made from Radioactive Curd and Sludge, however, the King has also dispatched a cheese vendor to the area, allowing you to purchase the bait from the Cheese Shoppe here.
In addition to Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese, you'll also want to arm your most powerful hydro trap! The mice here are some of the most challenging you'll find, meaning each bit of Power and ounce of Luck will benefit you.
During your hunting endeavours, you'll likely come across a unique item called Crude Pollutinum. This gooey resource can be refined into Pollutinum: a more useful version of itself. Pollutinum can be used to craft a wide variety of useful items including, charms, bases, trap skins, and more!
One last word of caution: While a Toxic Spill is active, Crude Pollutinum cannot be refined. The process is simply too dangerous to attempt while such high levels of radiation are present in the Kingdom. You'll need to wait until the spill is cleaned up before refining any Crude Pollutinum you find to avoid the risk of it being re-contaminated.
Well, that's all the advice I have for you, hunter. Grab some soapy water and get to work! This place is hideous.
