Description


Shhhh, they'll never know what hit them, better avoid eating that pudding or standing under THAT mistletoe muahahaha

No theft risk

There is no risk that the sneaky 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 sneaky grinch.

Location

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

Mystic resistance

The sneaky grinch is resistant to mystic power.

Mystic-resistant ghosts have three primary types:

  • Ghosts that can be caught with a strong raw-power setup
  • Ghosts that can only be caught with a combination of willpower (to overcome their mystic resistance) and high mystic power
  • Ghosts that require brute force in your setup to activate before they can be caught

Use a high mystic power, high willpower setup when you are trying to catch the Sneaky grinch.

Brute force may also strengthen your setup when you are trying to catch the Sneaky grinch.

The sneaky grinch can be caught with a high raw power setup. Your setup does not require high willpower (force of will) or brute force, although those things do not hurt your setup!

To capture the sneaky grinch, you should stack your setup with willpower and high mystic power.

Thawing

The sneaky grinch may be frozen when you attract it.

The best way to catch a frozen sneaky grinch is to have the thawing stat in your setup, and for that thawing chance to be activated.

You can also catch a frozen sneaky grinch with brute force in your setup if that brute force stat activates.

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

Drops

The sneaky 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 sneaky 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 sneaky 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 sneaky 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)
