I have some more and less distinct goals for the LNY event:

1) to bronze the Artillery Commander (I got enough gold during the GWH to buy all the portals I needed from the Marketplace, and now I want to use them all and catch him with candles - hopefully some red ones). I want to get as many Artillery Strike Launch Boxes as possible, as I'll probably never hunt that mouse again after I've bronzed him.

2) to silver the Queen Quesada (or get as near as possible to that silver). At the moment I have 50 catches, 27 pieces of Wildfire Queso, and enough Bland Queso for 36 more pieces (still need the Ember Roots and Stones for them, though). With the usual catch rate, that will not be enough cheese for her, but her Unstable Ember Gadgets (doubled by candles) are good for large batches of Bland Queso, too.

3) to farm goods from Ful'Mina (I silvered her months ago, but she offers so many random goods, and doubling them is just great).

4) to get enough diamonds and minerals from Fungal Cavern to get Diamond cheese for bronzing the Diamondhide (the cheese may be eaten by his colleagues instead, of course, so there's no guarantee for catching him at all).

Last year I had one goal in mind... Moussu Picchu. And all of my focus through the GWH and the CNY events were in that location. Boy did I make out like a bandit. ;))
This year I'm much less focused. I'm farming Queen Quesada for the very, very, very long term goal is to get the theme from her, but yeah... having a hard time being motivated towards that goal. (I have soooo much queso!!!!) So the Queso Canyon area is my primary hunting location, but I'm moving around to a few other locations as well. I do like Moussu Picchu for this event and I'll probably head over there for a few days.

Goals...
Silver the QQ (80)... got the cheese for it and everything.
Would like to bronze the Costumed Pig (3).
Would like to silver the Costumed Sheep (94) and Costumed Rabbit (93).
Oh, and my lantern is at 151ft. :) I didn't make it to 500ft last year, hoping to do so this year.

FK, I will take your Queso; I've got so many leaves and stones/embers but not nearly enough Bland. ;))

If I can finish this LNY event with enough supplies to get me to 500 QQ's eventually once I farm enough Bland I'll be happy, but we'll see. Using regular candles with Flamin' and Triples with QQ as I go to help in the Bland replenishment.

Still have a few other areas I want to hit up during LNY but haven't made it out yet...was going to get a few Ascended and MBW but we'll see. Those are also good for Easter so I've got plenty of time.

I'm hunting for queso at the moment. I need to try and hit the BWRift, but I've been bouncing between Mossu Pichu and Queso. I've gotten a decent amount of bland queso. Not sure what to do next. Up to 270 feet.

I have bronzed the Artillery Commander (with 26 Artillery Strike Launch Boxes, from mostly Red Candles) and silvered the Queen Quesada.
I now have more than half a million Bland Queso, more than a hundred each of Mild, Medium and Hot Queso, and 17 each of Flamin' and Wildfire Queso. Perhaps each of the next 4 hundred QQs might go a lot faster than the first one? At least if I work on them with the candles available?

Ful'Mina is ok to play passively, and I've got good loot from her, although no teeth or gifts. But farming candles can be done passively too ...

I've got Diamonds only occasionally from Orange Winter Hunt Gift Boxes, but I've bought minerals for most of the Nachore I've got. So I'm closer to that goal as well ...

Just got the theme which was the last thing I kind of wanted to get from here.

I realized the other day that I needed to be careful of my Queso supplies as I'll likely need some leftover for the Egg Hunt and I don't really want to spend everything now. ;))

I've been back and forth between Queso Canyon and Ful'Mina. Haven't had many good drops from the lightning dragon mouse this year.

Just hit 500 ft. :)

Other notes, I got 3 Ful'Mina teeth thanks to a Red Candle, so I bought a Lightning scroll. That'll be ready to go once the event is over if people want to do it. Need to resupply chests for next year again. ;)

I ALMOST hit 1,000,000 queso, but I'm back down to 810,000 as I had to craft a fair bit more cheese. Currently at 168 Queen Quesadas.

I did the calculations and I'm a weeee bit shy of the embers/stones I need for 500 QQ's safely, but I've decided I'm going to go ahead and switch to QQ and bland farming for the time being. If I'm VERY close I can always throw some baitkeeps at it; or use up the Flamin' I have left to top myself off.

Nicely done Gymmie, nicely done. :ymapplause: I'll hit 200 QQ tomorrow and I'm quite satisfied with that. I watched FBF from Feb 8th today (I'm behind) and Dave said they'll likely bring the same event back next year, so I figure I'll just keep chipping away at the theme over time. :)

Unless I get some amazing drops tomorrow, the best things I got this year are Ultimate Charms, Baitkeep Charms, and Ful'Mina teeth. I really like hunting Ful'Mina because she drops a little bit of everything. ;))

You know, I thought I would gold crown Nachous/Inferna long before I gold crowned QQ, but at this point I don’t see how that’s possible since I have less than 300 N/I and materials for 480 or so QQ. ;))

Didn’t really do much hunting outside the Canyon this year...got a few Ascended, got a few Ful’Mina...forgot how good that area is for replenishing Dumpling cheese.
