You can combine the cinnamon star candles with other burners or anti-burners to adjust the number of bottles you will use each hunt.
Burner use and strategy
Dealing with the burner aspect of the cinnamon star candles is a perfect example of the kinds of choices and trade-offs you must make throughout Virtual Scotland.
There is no correct answer — there is simply the choice that benefits your current goals the most (or the choice that minimizes the amount of pain you feel watching bait disappear). It's all a matter of taste and your current goals.
Many people prefer to use cheaper bait with the cinnamon star candles. They tend to see burner components as an occasional necessary evil.
Others will use Nessy's Golden Reserve or mocktails with the cinnamon star candles in their setup, because they are trying to capture a ghost that requires more raw power, more mystic power, or more something to catch than is otherwise available. Again, this is purely a matter of taste.
Only you know what is most important to you in Ghost Trappers right now, and that is probably the most important factor to consider to help you determine the best strategy for your own use of the cinnamon star candles.
The cinnamon star candles magic circle must be assembled with the help of Dr Elizabeth Grimely and her minions in the Laboratory outposts of S.C.O.T.C.H. HQ located in all normal, non-raiding locations in Virtual Scotland (which includes any of the Alien visitors locations, and any spider den or trapdoor locations).
