Well, I've caught up on the new mice I didn't have, so now I'm bouncing between Laby runs for Mino loot and Fort Rox to finish out the Shadow trap there. (I just need Howlite and Bloodstones at this point, and I'm far more likely to get that one than the two Temporal Shadow Plates ;)).)

I'm going to be doing Fealty runs for boss loot when not on Mino runs, unless I run out of GG or need other district loot. Previous Laby events have left my boss loot a bit out of proportion.

Honestly, though, I'm ready for the BWRift. The Shadow trap(s) doesn't represent a major goal right now, and I'm not really interested in farming anything where I can (like the FRift to finish the batteries). Treasure maps would be a fun distraction, but other than that, I got nothin'. ;))

Anybody know what happened with FBF today? I shows they streamed something, but no video was saved, and no summary was posted on the forum. I was hoping for lots of spoilers but I may have missed out... :P

Hanging out in the FRift waiting for a fellow mapmate to finish the last mouse and then I'll do another treasure map...and probably keep doing maps until the new area opens.

Random observation, I just noticed yesterday that I have more silver crowns than I do bronze crowns. I think that means I play too much. :P

On a far more interesting note, a new mini-event just started as (I believe) a precursor to the BWRift starting soon. Maybe this was mentioned in the lost FBF from last week, but I hadn't seen anything about it on the forum. Anyways, it's an expanded Zombie invasion. I actually JUST used up my Undead Emmental cheese this week so if I get a chance, I'll have to restock on those potions.
But for the moment, I'm focusing my energy on the Burroughs Rift to get some Undead Emmental String Cheese potions and snag the new event mouse. I haven't figured out yet where I need to be in the BRift to get the new potions to drop, but maybe it doesn't matter. I'm starting off with Brie String and low levels of Mist.

ETA: Just got a string potion to drop off of a zombie mouse in the BRift, so it looks like that's the way to go. However, I see the best conversion requires regular Undead Emmental, so I'll be farming some of those potions as well. What a week to use up the last of that cheese. LOL Ah, irony.

You can also covert MSC or regular string cheese into RUE, but the rate isn't as good.

RAE is really nice...getting some nice charms to drop. I'll stay here for the duration of the event, I think.

I watched it, and you didn't miss out on spoilers.
At first there was no sound - we could see Dave speaking, but it took him a few minutes of frantic comments in the chat to realize that we couldn't hear him.

So he started again, and then got a small and useless video saved as well as the proper one. And he has confessed at the forum that unfortunately he deleted the proper one when he meant to delete the small one ... :-o

But he didn't tell about the new area, so there were no spoilers. They were still working on it, and he said there might be more info about it in the FBF next week (i.e. tomorrow).

Instead he asked for suggestions as to what people think would be important changes if they ever make a version 4 of MouseHunt. They made version 3 many years ago, and there are some changes that would be easier to make in a total overhaul of the code, rather than in patching up the old one.

Here (on Facebook) is the thread where there was a small discussion of it (including Dave's comment).

Edit:
Or perhaps this link -
https://www.mousehuntgame.com/forum/showthread.php?130883-what-happened-with-feedback-friday-today - works better?
Possibly only after you've logged in ...

@Gymmie, yeah, I saw that and I wasn't about to use my MSC. I'm hoarding that for the next area should we need it. And I too noticed the charms and tomb stone drops. I'm also planning on hanging out here for the rest of the event. I strongly suspect it will lead into the release of the BWRift next week, but I guess we won't find out until tomorrow.

@Varna, MH 4.0 huh? I was actively involved in the transition from 2.0 to 3.0. They had an open BETA so I sent in lots of suggestions and bug reports. ;)) I'm SURE they appreciated it. ;) Anyways, that's actually very interesting news. However, your link didn't work for me. It just took me to my MH profile.

Thanks Bee, that was the thread I found previously, but when I read through it before, the comments weren't there yet. I'll definitely take a look when I have a minute.
No offense to Jacob, but I was so disappointed to see him on FBF yesterday. :P I was hoping for Dave, with spoilers, announcing the release of BWRift next week. :P :)) Ah well.
I'm tapped out on Tomb Stones, and like you Bee, I have zero interest in the skin. So now I'm trying to decide if I should stay to farm Rift Antiskele Charms? I probably should.....
The other option is finishing up the treasure map I'm on, but if the event ends Tuesday and the new area doesn't release for another week, I'll have time.

So was I :P
Perhaps Dave will do that next Friday :P

I'm farming potions/cheese, both Undead Emmenthal in Mousoleum and Undead String Emmenthal in BRift. I had 4 hundred Undead Emmenthal cheese to start with, so I've used that for converting the potions.
I'm hoping to silver the new mouse - I have reached 50 catches, but I need more non-string potions as well now. Perhaps there won't be time for the silver before the potions stop dropping - possibly on Tuesday.

I'm in Fort Rox for the last mouse on the map and for some reason that I cannot fathom aside from being sleep deprived, I entered the Heart of the Meteor. Why on earth did I do that??? I already have one Heart of the Meteor Mouse and I was saving my second portal and cheese stash for next year in case they added an Easter Egg!!! Now I need to farm or buy another portal and probably some additional cheese as well. :(

I might go ahead and buy the portal components. They'll only become more expensive as the new areas are released and if I get more off of a map I can just sell them back. Arrrgg!! So annoyed with myself right now.
