Sidequest: Gnawnian Express Station
- To travel to the Gnawnian Express Station, you need to be at least a Lord/Lady. It is also recommended that you have an S.L.A.C (or preferably, an S.L.A.C II) from the Claw Shot City.
- Upon arriving, you will find a train schedule. You need a hunting party to board a train. Trains are also considered specialized tournaments, so you must not be currently participating in one.
- Your objective is to earn as many Train Points as possible. You earn loot rewards based on how many Train Points your party has earned, as well as the total amount of points the train as a whole has earned.
- The trip is divided into three legs: The Supply Depot, Raider River, and Daredevil Canyon.
- In the Supply Depot, your objective is to collect Royal Supply Crates, and then load them on the train using the provided HUD interface.
- Optionally, using Supply Schedule Charms from the charm shoppe would allow you to attract Warehouse Manager mice, which will trigger a supply rush for your entire team. During a supply rush, Supply Hoarder mice would be available, which can drop up to 6 supply crates at a time!
- The charms available here also give quite a healthy bonus to Luck and Power. If you can afford the Fool's Gold, you can use them elsewhere for close tournaments and tough mice.
- You will be able to smuggle up to 10 crates for another train if you don't load them by the end of the leg. However, you will lose them if you leave the train early.
- In Raider River, your objective is to catch or repel the raiders (mice of the Raider subgroup within the Train Robbers group) that are attacking the train. Each raider your team catches or repels earns 1 point, and they earn an additional 10 points for every 10 raiders caught or repelled. You may repel additional raiders by collecting Raider-B-Gone Mouse Repellent, and using it with the provided HUD interface.
- Optionally, use Roof Rack, Door Guard, and Greasy Glob charms from the Charm Shoppe for increased attraction of raider mice; the correct charm to use depends on which part of the train is being attacked according to the HUD. This changes every hour, on the hour.
- You will be able to smuggle up to 10 repellant cans for another train if you don't use them by the end of the leg. However, you will lose them if you leave the train early.
- In Daredevil Canyon, your objective is to stoke the engines to allow the train to jump the wrecked bridge. Collect Fuel Nuggets and stoke the engine to earn your party Train Points. Unlike the previous legs, you will get a bonus for hoarding Fuel Nuggets; every nugget above 10 is worth 2 points, and you get an additional bonus for using 20. However, you may not carry more than 20, so be sure to use them.
- Optionally, use Dusty Coal Charms (either from the Charm Shoppe or as loot from the Train Engineer mouse) to attract the Coal Shoveller mouse, which drops Black Powder Charms, which attracts the Black Powder Thief mouse, which drops Magmatic Crystal Charms, which attracts the Magmatic Golem Mouse. The Black Powder Thief may drop several Fuel Nuggets at a time, and the Magmatic Golem Mouse may drop quite a bounty of them!
- You will be able to smuggle up to 10 fuel nuggets for another train if you don't use them by the end of the leg. However, you will lose them if you leave the train early.
- Forgot how many Supply Crates, Raider-B-Gone Repellent and Fuel Nuggets you've smuggled? Follow the links.
- Additionally, you will get crafting materials (Iron Pellets, Copper Beads, and Tin Scraps), both as loot during the trip, and as rewards after the trip. These are used to purchase special trap weapons from the trapsmith:
- All three trap weapons are slightly more powerful than the S.L.A.C II, but additionally,
- The Supply Grabber gets bonus effectiveness during the Supply Depot leg.
- The Bandit Deflector gets bonus effectiveness during the Raider River leg.
- The Engine Doubler gets bonus effectiveness during the Daredevil Canyon leg.
- I recommend you get the Bandit Deflector first, as completing the set of weapons requires more Copper Beads than each of the other two materials.
