No theft risk
There is no risk that the north star (at the north pole) will steal GTP (£££), XP, bait, or ghost plasma if you fail to catch it.
You must have completed and displayed the Star collection of souvenirs before you can attract the North star}.
The North star can only be seen in ultraviolet light. Stack your setup, including your camera, with lenses and other equipment with uv light if you are trying to take a picture of the north star (at the north pole).
The North star is resistant to mystic power.
Mystic-resistant ghosts have three primary types:
Brute force may also strengthen your setup when you are trying to catch the North star.
The North star might be on fire when you attract it.
The best way to catch an on-fire North star is to have the extinguish stat in your setup, and for that extinguish stat to activate and dampen down that North star so that your trap setup has a chance against it.
You can also catch an on-fire North star if the brute force stat is in your setup and activates.
There is no way to catch an on-fire North star with just a high raw power setup (and no extinguish or brute force) or with just a high mystic power setup (and no extinguish or brute force).
Keep your fire extinguisher ready!
The North star has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items of ghost loot:
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the North star 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.
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 North star. 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
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 North star. 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)
The North star is part of the Christmas stars collection.
Baits that might help attract the North star (because these baits will add uv light to your setup) include:
