Definitely a very profitable event! I split my Golems fairly evenly between MoPi and BWRift (with the edge given to BWRift due to me needing to do more work in that area), and then Zokor whenever I had hats/Golem parts to spare. So my loot is fairly spread out, but let's just say that I think it's fairly safe to assume that I won't need to farm Ancient String or Runic String cheese OR potions for a very long time. ;)) And I have a very healthy FBF/Dragonvine stash that ought to make a very good dent in getting my upgraded Ful'Mina trap and/or Lighting Scroll Case.

I never got anything exceptionally great from my Hats (although, I still have some still to send so it's not over yet), but still, feel pretty satisfied with my haul.

I AM looking forward to getting back to regular hunting! CNY is coming soon so I need to prep some areas for that (double loot). I also took a page out of Bee's book and realized that I could earn an easy few mil by crafting some skins with supplies I don't need anymore, but I'm missing a few components so I'll probably look into grabbing those soon since that's easily the fastest way to earn gold for me right now.

I've pretty much run out of PP cheese and golem parts, so I'm going back to regular hunting. Man, I have so much loot I don't know what to do with it all. I've easily got a couple hundred potions for the different tiers of the King's Gauntlet... then proceeded to finally finish it after about 3-4 hunts. ;))

One thing is that I'm trying to catch the Keeper Mouse in the Catacombs since I never got around to it before the Halloween event or GWH. I have the Arcane Capturing Rod Of Never Yielding Mystery and I'm using Radioactive Blue Cheese, which from what I can tell is the best combination I have for catching it. So far, I have yet to even see a Keeper Mouse, let alone catch it. Is there some secret to catching it that I'm missing? You are supposed to hunt for it in the Catacombs, right? I'm three levels behind on my "main quests" and I'm hoping to finally be done with this one....

No, I'm not even sure you can attract the Keeper Mouse with RB Cheese. You need Ancient Cheese. It's the better cheese to use in the Catacombs anyways, and pretty much a requirement for the Forbidden Grove (the follow up area to the Catacombs).
The crafting recipe for Ancient is 6 Ionized Salt and 3 Stale Cheese. Don't use the potions unless you have to.

Drat, the wiki lied to me. Thankfully, I have a whole bunch of Ancient Cheese after the GWH, so I'll start using that and see if my luck improves. Thanks!

EDIT: On my very next hunt, I finally caught the Keeper Mouse!! ...And he did not drop a Keeper Candle. Oh well, at least I know it's possible now.

Goals Upgrade Post-GWH:

-- 1010 meters in Sunken City (for Easter)
-- Rift Trap and Base upgrades from BWRift (41 Cogs and no Runes, so a looooong way to go) [but that's 7 Cogs from GWH stuff; wish they'd have given me some Runes instead of Timesplit Charms #:-s ; I'm closing in on my 8th Absolute Acolyte so here's hoping I can start looting more/better stuff soon.]
-- Draconic upgrade in MoPi (I have 7 scales and 1 tooth, so not as long now) [Yes, I looted a Ful'Mina's Tooth in GWH.]
-- Finish the refine Pollutinum adventure (haven't been eager to spend time in the TS)
-- Temporal Turbine trap from Laby (still need both Shadow Plates) [Not as urgent given the crossbow trap upgrade from GWH; paired with snowball charms, that should help even out my MoPi runs.]
-- Relic Hunter journal theme (still need 4 scraps)
-- MoPi and Lightning journal themes (I don't expect these to happen quickly, given the high prices of the stuff in the stores)

I'm fairly well set up in BWRift and MoPi for the Egg Hunt. Not sure what else I'll do between now and then besides bounce between the top 2 areas (3 if I do any Laby runs).

10:40 pm - Festive Comet: New Year's Celebration
I sold 1 Enigmatic Core for 1,855,000 gold at the Marketplace.
10:39 pm - Festive Comet: New Year's Celebration
I sold 2 Really, Really Shiny Precious Gold for 340,000 gold at the Marketplace.
10:37 pm - Festive Comet: New Year's Celebration
I purchased 1 Temporal Shadow Plate for 46,748,900 gold at the Marketplace.
10:36 pm - Festive Comet: New Year's Celebration
I sold 1 Essence of Destruction for 18,300,005 gold at the Marketplace.

All those that I sold, were brought by golems.

After that, I went through my inventory and sold all I thought I could do without of skins and charms (and some crafting items) - many of which were also brought by golems. It turned out to net me 20 mil!

I decided I now had enough for a second Temporal Shadow Plate as well, and crafted the Temporal Turbine trap - and chromed it with the kit I bought from Ronza last year.

This gives me a new project for overnight hunting - to silver all the Havarti mice in Jungle of Dread. I made a lot of cheese for that project last year, and now I have the best trap for it - so when I need to do some completely passive hunting, the non-rift Dojo Sensei isn't the obvious target any more.

And for active hunting? I now have 260 Dragonvine Cheese, 296 Rainy Cheese and 296 Windy Cheese, and 296 Fire Bowl Fuel.
Then also 12 Minotaur Keys, 142 Lantern Oil, 11 Compass Magnets and 68 Shuffler's Cubes - and 1759 Glowing Gruyere Cheese.

Those are not all, but the main rewards from my golems ...
