Our Authorized Resellers have let us know that they’ve gotten such amazing support from you, the players, with Fr057y and Virtual RUMs! With this year’s theme of Monthly Garden Gnomes, we thought it would be nice to include them in that as well! Please welcome these very special Garden Gnomes themed around each Reseller’s shop!
Reseller Garden Gnome Details
Like the other gnomes, Reseller Garden Gnomes are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31. They will be available at our Authorized Resellers’ shops some time today. When you purchase a Garden Gnome from a Reseller, you will receive the base Garden Gnome with their respective gnome skin already equipped. However, you can still swap out the skins just like the other Garden Gnomes — refer to our original blog post if you need a refresher! Interested? You can get links to shop all of our resellers HERE!
- Deploy: 500
- Capture: 250
- CapOn: 300
You can find these international ambassadors traveling to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:
Additionally, the Gold Miner Garden Gnome will land on all stages of the Treasure Chest Evolution.
Also like the other gnomes, up to 3 NEW Gnome Hats may be scattered nearby when they are captured!
The Gnome Hats will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.
The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:
- Capture: 50 points
- CapOn: 50 points
Reseller Garden Gnomes of ANY type will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Reseller Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Reseller Garden Gnome visits you. Reseller Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Reseller Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.
As a reminder, Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:
- Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up! You’ll also receive these upon purchasing a Reseller gnome!
- Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
- Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
- Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!
First, here are the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Aussie Explorer Garden Gnome:
The badges for the other Reseller Garden Gnomes follow the same pattern.
We’ve also extended the “Overall deploy” and “Overall capture” badge line — you can peek at the first of these new badges below:
We hope these Reseller gnomes are as beloved as their sports star brethren!
