Whereas the best way to prepare for the Shelder, is to catch him X( - or have someone on your treasure map catch him, as in my case.

I was at more than 67,000 m in Sunken City and got the Deep, Deep, Deep Egg - then I've been at Harbour and caught the whole new crew and got the crew egg.

Right now I'm in Fort Rox, have got the Dawn Egg and hope for the MotM Egg as well before my wall breaks down completely. Day and Night eggs will be easy - but I don't want to go to Dawn again during the SEH.

The longest projects will probably be a Minotaur run and an FW run. It's a good thing that we've got almost two weeks left ...

I did a dumb thing; I was going after MBW's in the WRift and I crafted a Taunting Charm but forgot to arm it... 8-} Oh well! I got 4 or 5 MBW's and I have some cheese left over to help me go after 50/50/50 rage when I have time later on. So all in all not too bad. I think I would have gotten kicked out after one more hunt anyway; the last MBW only dropped one Widow's Web so I wouldn't have been able to craft another Taunting Charm.

Juuuust about done with the Sunken City (only need two more charms and I suppose I can buy them if needed) so I'm going to head into the SSHIII for awhile and charge and hope for my Shelder.

Yep, I did the same thing yesterday. :) Hit up the Harbour, got all the new mice and went ahead and finished up the unnecessary Harbour map.
I returned to the FRift last night. I never have finished getting all of the batteries so I'm working on the 9th battery and will probably finish that one soon.
BUT, the Toxic Spill has opened and I just got my last new egg. :D I checked the scoreboard and finished in the top 11 players. Not too shabby at all! :D I'll probably sit in the Toxic Spill for a while since I have nothing better to do and I'd like to crown some of these mice.

I'm at the spill as well, but I guess I'll only stay there until I've got the egg. I've FTC'ed the Mutant Mongrel once, and caught lots of other mice - and got several Toxic Spill eggs. Is the Mongrel a bit rare?

Some time I'll go back to the Harbour and finish the unnecessary map and bronze all those new mice. But not during this event.

I have some egg business at FRift as well. I have just repaired Battery 8, but I'm down at Battery 6 at the moment and will need a lot of Energy to equip it. Perhaps I should only charge Battery 7, to save time. I need the
Grand Master of the Dojo Egg, and don't expect too much trouble in getting it.

I was sure that I was miles away from getting the Ascended Elder Egg, because I've never attempted him and not even made his cheese. Then I realised that I wasn't as far off from making 1 piece of his cheese as I thought. I only need 3 Senseis and 5 Mojos to get what I still need for it, so if I have enough cheese for those, I guess I could have a go (and catch him for the first time). I'll use one of my Ultimate Charms to make sure I don't waste that precious piece of cheese.

Then the two long runs, and finally my Patience mice - Tiny, Chrono, Aether, and Shelder ...

Got my Mutant Mongrel Egg; I've moved out of the Toxic Spill for now because I want to take advantage of the last bit of Slayer Aura I have left, then I'll go back later to fill my barrels and hopefully get some more Toxic Spill and Clean Eggs, since I need just a tad more Pollutonium to get my Polluted Theme.

Realizing that I probably do not have enough time to use up all my Charge charms and MM this year, which is !!! to think about, haha. Might spend some time just at high charge since I have so many. Hard to keep a cycle going when I'm bouncing between several areas that require their own charms.

No Shelder nibble yet, but I'm just about ready to go after him in earnest. We've got time...

I clicked on FBF this morning about 20 min late figuring it would be Jacob doing some artwork, but no, it was Dave dishing out spoilers for the upcoming content left and right. :P I'll have to go back and watch the first part later because I missed the egg hunt feedback and the BWRift spoilers.

What I did catch is that they're aiming to release the BWRift in May, and there may be a mini-event in between the end of the egg hunt and the new Rift opening.

Moussu Picchu is next. It will be Grand Duke/Duchess level. You will need to craft something from the drops in the Labyrinth to get in. It's going to be a Draconic themed area in mountainous territory. And it will lead into the first Archduke/duchess area which will take place in the skies above Gnawnia. Intriguing.

https://www.mousehuntgame.com/forum/showthread.php?130677-Feedback-Friday-Summary-April-21-2017

......

In the meantime, I'm doing a combined Library Assignment for an M400 mouse and an Elaborate Treasure Map (hoping for RH theme scraps!!). This is working out quite well as I'm getting all sorts of random eggs I wouldn't have snagged otherwise, and it's something fun to do on the side. :)

I may head to the Laby after this to stock up on supplies if needed, and if not needed, get in a Mino run before the end of the event.

Got the M400 mouse. Taking a break from the treasure map at the moment because I do want to crown three of the Toxic Spill mice. I have the:
Lab Technician @ 97
Swamp Runner @ 96
Bog Beast @ 98
The bog beast I'm not too confident about because he's rare, but the other two shouldn't be a problem as we reach the end of the spill. :)

Next up, Labyrinth and then finishing the treasure map.

ETA @ 8:45pm: Ironically, Bog Beast down! Still have the other two to go. :P

I'm down to:

Shelder
Shattering
Magmatic Golem
Warmonger
Gargantua
Zokor Treasury
Unstable Crystal
Ascended Elder


I'm having trouble staying online long enough to get the Gargantua. I already know I'm not getting the Warmonger, Shattered and the Ascended Elder either. Magmatic Golem is one I'm putting off, but any tips on the two Laby eggs? I'm setting up for the Shelder again.

If this is your goal, you can always sign in, move to the Warpath, hunt actively for however long you're on (one hunt? two hunts?) and then when you go back offline, move to the Huntington for the Shelder where you can passively hunt. Do you have the charms that force the Garga to come to your trap? I think Ronza sold some if I remember correctly.
As for the Zokor eggs, for me personally, I hate treasury runs. I spend almost all of my resources cycling for treasure doors. Here is one tip I can share with you that I've learned the hard way. As you probably know, you have to have 15 clues before you can have a treasure door come up. Whatever you do, do NOT have more than 15 clues in one type of hallway, like Scholar, because then when you use shuffler cubes, all that comes up are higher level scholar hallways. You'll want to spread out your clues over different hallways like 3 clues in scholar, 5 in fealty, 7 in farming, etc.

I currently need 1 Swamp Runner and 1 Lab Technician for a silver crown on each of them and then I'll be done with the Toxic Spill.

I do have the charms, but the first one didn't work. I'm now far enough along in wave 2 that I doubt I'll get it. I may go try for a treasury run then at some point.

if you had a streak of 7+ and a Draconic trap armed, then that was a bug that should have been reported as the charm guarantees an attraction and catch rate is 99%. :-s Sorry that happened, that's frustrating. But it's not hard to get a streak in waves two and three if you use the Super Warpath charms and SB+. :) You still have a week, don't give up yet!

I got all of the silver crowns I wanted out of the Toxic Spill, yay! so I'm onto ZT to snag the Queen for our map. Minotaur next. I also plan to help my sister with a train or two.

Well, that was a Toxic Spill fail. ;)) I totally underestimated how long it would take me to fill my barrel, so I traveled back into the Spill too late...I'm still 100 Crude short and there's only about 5h left to the spill, so that's not gonna happen. Oh well, I guess the Polluted Theme is going to have to wait till next time...I bailed from the Spill because I'd rather fill up my barrel when it's *not* Easter anyway.

Back to the SSHIII. Cycling there is pretty sweet...even hunting with SB+ gives me a net gain in SB+ because of the High Charge eggs. Noooot bad at all. Here's hoping the Shelder shows up soon!

ETA: Got my Shelder mere hours later. Noooottt bad. Now I'm back in the Spill (cuz why not I guess) and I'll help finish off my current Shelder map, and then maybe go to the Laby for the rest of the event? Got about a week left so I'd like to beef up some areas that I still have work left to do in.

First time I've not even tried to fill up my barrel at the Spill. I stayed until I got the new egg, and then left to hunt for the other eggs.

My egg project was for 23 eggs, the 18 new ones and 5 left over from last year. Now I've got 20 eggs, and only time is needed for the Warmonger egg (while DLU is needed for Chrono and Shelder).

I was at the end of Wave 1, and have rushed through Wave 2 - but Wave 3 is slow because I want to catch a Flame Ordnance for a map, and I don't know of any other way to catch it than to defeat the other mice types one by one, so no Commanders ...

I'm using SB+ and Super Warpath charms, though, so I get help from local streaks - I've even had a couple of Streak 9s, but mostly I stop after 7 and arm the Garga Guarantee charms (sold by Ronza, and now at the Marketplace). I just bronzed the Garga :)

When Warmonger is done, the main task is Shelder - with probably some Chrono hunting in between. If I choose to leave one egg for next year, I guess it will be the Chrono, though. But it would be rather nice to become an Egg Master (fk, have you checked that forum thread they are talking about? is it real?), as I'm finally really close.

Unequip all of your warpath charms and arm something else... like an eggstra charm. You should get a Flame Ordnance mouse fairly quickly, and then you can catch Commanders again.

Yes it is. :)

That's what I tried first - I guess I gave up too soon, thinking that it wasn't working. Arcane trap, right? Or not right? I had so many red boxes with it, which I expected, but it should be what I needed for the Flame Ordnance.

I'll try again :)

I don't know what physical trap you have, but I usually just use my Sandstorm Monstrobot when I'm hunting across the board. Arcane traps are best for the Flame Ordnance mice, but they're not good for the rest of the mice. The physical traps are good enough, especially if you have a good base and charm to go with it.

Also, I've personally found that the more mice you have in one category, the more likely you are to attract that particular mouse. So like if I have 15-20-15-35-2-10, the Cavalry mice will be the ones I most likely attract. Does that make sense?
