Description


Aaaah the sweet smile of success, I have a cunning plan to steal Christmas gifts. Gifts, gifts... gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts, gifts! They are all mine!!

No theft risk

There is no risk that the grinning grinch will steal GTP (£££), XP, bait, or ghost plasma if you fail to catch it.

Additional information


Souvenirs required

You must have completed and displayed the Advent collection of souvenirs before you can attract the grinning grinch.

(In 2015, a bug allowed some players to attract the grinning grinch before completing the Advent collection. This was not a feature, this was a bug.)

Location

The grinning grinch can be captured only during Celebration week special events in region 1, Dumfries and Galloway, at the North Pole.

Brute force

The only way to catch the grinning grinch is to have brute force in your setup, and for that brute force to activate.

There is no way to catch the grinning grinch with just a high raw power setup (and no brute force) or with just a high mystic power setup (and no brute force).

Drops

The grinning grinch has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items of ghost loot:

Mockery loot

If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the grinning grinch. Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.

Mockery stat drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:

A standard loot drop of a mocktail     5x Cherry bomb
A mockery stat caused] loot drop of a mocktail     5 Devil driver
Snowflake loot

If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the grinning grinch may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in the list above.

Vintage connoisseur loot

If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops from the grinning grinch. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.

Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:

16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
