If the Element of Poison has a bit of a questionable reputation, this could be traced back to Rare Humbugs. Eschewing the typically amicable attitude of the Common Ethereal, they seem to delight in injecting their venom into poor Torchle Trees. The joke's on them, though - the trees actually lap it up and grow stronger as a result!
Monster Bio

Description

Rare Humbug is a single-element Rare Ethereal Monster. It was added on May 14th, 2016 during Version 1.4.1. As a Rare Monster, it is only available at select times. It is best obtained by breeding Quarrister and a triple-element Monster. By default, its breeding time is 1 day, 21 hours, and 30 minutes long. Rare Humbug has a great coin production on Earth Island that is bested by very few Monsters. It has coin rates comparable with Rare to Epic Quarrister depending on your coin collection schedule.

Rare Humbug can either be teleported to Ethereal Island when fed to level 15, or bred there with any combination that would result in a Humbug. It will take 12 hours, 38 minutes, and 15 seconds to breed. Like all Rare single-element Ethereals, Rare Humbug has excellent shard production, bested only by other single-element Rare and Epic Monsters.

Breeding

Like all other Rares, Rare Humbug is only available for breeding during short time periods announced in the game.

Breeding on Earth Island

Like its Common counterpart, the Rare Humbug can be bred on Earth Island using a combination of Quarrister and a three-element monster. Possible combinations:

Failed breeding results in a parent monster, or a regular Humbug. The Rare Humbug's chances of breeding are less than the common Humbug's. Wishing Torches will increase the chance of success, and so will using high level monsters. The Rare version of any monster can be used for breeding instead of the common version.

Breeding on Ethereal Island

On Ethereal Island, breeding a Humbug with any other monster can result in a Rare Humbug instead of a regular Humbug. Note that it is better to breed Humbug with another Single Element Ethereal rather than a Double Element Ethereal, as this gives less chance of getting a Double Element Ethereal, which takes a long time to breed and incubate. Once a Rare Humbug is obtained, breeding it with a regular Humbug to get more Rare Humbugs will avoid getting one or two element Ethereals in the way, as long as Rare Humbug is still available.

Availability

For a list of when this monster has been available, see: Breeding Availability

Rare Humbug, like all Rarethereals are only available for breeding and buying some of the time during special events, typically during the weekend. Examples:

Likes

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25%. Placing more than one of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase its happiness by 25%. If there's a Unity Tree on the island, items don't need to be near the monsters. Below are the things liked by Rare Humbug:

Notes

Rare Humbug teaser

Rare Humbug release

teaser

  • A Rare Humbug cannot be bred with a Humbug on Earth Island, although they can on Ethereal Island.
  • It appears that the Large Trees in Earth Island are called Torchle Trees, according to the teaser. The "unknown" tree appeared to have a gooey green substance on it, which matched the description of the Rare Humbug.
    • It's possible they have a temper. If one looks closely on the Torchle Tree, they'll see a message that reads "Don't bug me".
