***ALERT! ALERT! -- Toxic Spill! -- ALERT! ALERT!***
The Laboratory has finally reached critical mass after dumping waste into the river! Hunters at the Hero rank and above should check out the Toxic Spill on their hunter's map and see if they can hunt there!
The Toxic Spill has polluted the opening of the Burroughs River causing the mice there to mutate into powerful monsters! Read on to learn how hunters can help hunt the mice there and clean up the pollution.
Toxic Spills are the result of a build up of polluted waste from the Lab spilling into the river due to the filtration system being damaged beyond repair by mice. The damaged filters block the waste until they give under the weight of the waste, causing it to flow into the river.
It's somewhat unpredictable how often a spill occurs and just how much waste will be spilled, however, with waste always building up these spills are likely to occur somewhat frequently. Each time there is a spill the amount of waste spilled is a little different, meaning each spill will vary in its level of severity.
Depending on the level of severity, access to the area will be restricted: Higher levels of toxic waste are restricted to higher-hunter's title, while lower levels of waste will allow for less experienced hunters to enter the spill area. These restrictions are for good reason -- High levels of contamination are when the most powerful mice are active requiring experienced hunters with powerful hunting equipment!
So how do you hunt in this new area? You need Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese! To get it, you need to first smash some radioactive blue cheese in your inventory, and craft the following:
- 2 Radioactive Curds
- 1 Ionized Salt
- 1 Radioactive Sludge
That will give you one piece of Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese. Use that cheese to hunt in the Toxic Spill.
You will also need a HYDRO trap to hunt there, and a strong one. Since the area is brand new, I am not sure if the strength of mice decreases for less experienced hunters, but the trap effectiveness that is on the page right now for Dukes and above (using Phantasmic Oasis) still says "Mild." Take that for what it's worth right now. By the time Heroes can hunt there, who knows, the Ancient Spear Gun might be fine. I really don't know though. More information to come for sure!
As you hunt mice, you'll get loot drops to make charms, rancid potions, etc. As I discover more about this area, I will post it here!
