The following is the list of the mice to catch to the best use of Pig Lunar Lantern double or triple loot bonus.
Location: Whisker Woods Rift
This mouse is the most popular target to spend the lantern loot bonus.
The Rift charms cannot be bought, nor crafted, so right now this is the best method to collect them. One player even has more than 2,000 of each charm.
Another reason to collect this charm is for the preparation of the upcoming new Rift area. Stay tune for this.
This mouse is easy to attract and not that hard to catch thanks to the lantern luck bonus.
However, the setup is pretty hard:
- 1 Taunting Charm
- As many Lunar Lantern Candle as you can
Catching phase 1
- Set the faction rage to 48 - 48 - 50 or any combination of it (not 50 - 50 - 50).
- Lit on the lantern.
- Repeat until you run out of Lactrodectus Lancashire Cheese
Catching phase 2
- Lit on the lantern as usual.
- Catch the faction bosses until 1 Taunting Charm remains.
- Craft Lactrodectus Lancashire Cheese using the loot that you get from the faction bosses.
- Repeat phase 1.
Remember, to always have at least 1 Taunting Charm to continue this cycle.
In the phase 2, you might catch non-faction-boss mouse of any faction which rage is 48. This will increase the faction rage from 48 to 50.
2. Retired Minotaur Mouse & the other Zokor bosses
Essence of Destruction , Temporal Shadow Plate , Enigmatic Core , Really, Really Shiny Precious Gold
Labyrinth area is famous for its tedious task to collect the key from each area, catch each Zokor boss, to craft the Minotaur Key to open the Minotaur Lair in order to finally catch Retired Minotaur Mouse.
To add more saltiness to this situation, the Mino boss drop that we want is random. Totally random. This is why the price of Essence of Destruction, Temporal Shadow Plate & Enigmatic Core are astronomical in the Marketplace.
Now, with the lantern loot bonus effect, one can be instant-millionaire simply by catching this mouse and getting the rare drop x2 or 3. I only got 2x Really, Really Shiny Precious Gold. Oh well.. Congratulations to the lucky people out there!
Location: Moussu Picchu
Reason: Ful'Mina's Tooth
As one of the most wanted items in the whole Gnawnia, it is a no-brainer why a number of hunters use the lantern here.
Although the drop rate of the tooth is quite low, hunters can keep farming the boss mouse using the to prevent Wind and Rain intensity from decreasing.
4. Twisted Carmine Mouse & the Shattered bosses
Location: Twisted Garden, Sand Crypts, Cursed City
Reason: Icuri Essence
The lantern loot bonus definitely helps the essences, herbs and petal gathering, especially the chests that the bosses drop.
This means that we need 3 Icuri Essence to catch all Shattered bosses, not to mention we also need the essence to craft certain trap blueprints:
Therefore, if you have not finished your business in Twisted Garden area, this might be a good chance to do this.
