You don't really use the Monstrobot outside of the Warpath (no new Physical areas) so I wouldn't prioritize it over the Laby stuff (which IS used elsewhere). Since you're in the Warpath for maps anyway, might as well see if you can get the Metal to drop, otherwise...*shrug* I dunno; it's been such a long time since I started the Warpath; I have no idea.

Well, the Mousehunt gods enjoy toying with me; no Temporal Shadow Plates, Dragon Teeth, Warpath portal projector parts or Timesplit Runes (recently), but hey, you can loot two Sandblasted Metals in a row! *rolls eyes*

Makes sense. Actually, that's probably why I didn't prioritize it when I first got to the Warpath. I think the Living Garden was out by that point.

Thanks for the official congrats!

If I were you, I'd knock out Fort Rox now. Unless you're wanting to participate in future Relic Hunter treasure maps, that's a completely useless area. Then I'd move onto the FRift. Unless you want/need the MYNOCRA trap, that's another area that can easily sit on the sidelines.


Thanks for all the advice! I already have the MYNOCRA trap but I'm almost done with the FRift, I just need to recharge my last battery, then I'll move to the Meteor. Both areas are great for overnight and Sunday hunting I've noticed. That's great because I've been doing Warpath maps and that place is terrible if you're not hunting actively. ;))

I've kind of prioritized the Warpath because practically everyone is hunting there right now. It's way more fun to hunt with you all then be off by myself somewhere.

In my humble opinion, I think it is MUCH harder getting into a Treasury Hallway than it is getting the Minotaur so that's what I'd set up for, but that's just me.


Really? Okay, I can switch strategies, I just want one run ready to go. And IF I get a Warpath Portal and everything else set up, I'll consider more Labyrinth runs for the other traps I don't have. That area does wear me out. It's long for starters, but sometimes it just doesn't want to give me the hallway I need so I have to throw tons of resources at it.

Oh, I'm sorry! That's really really annoying! I got incredibly lucky with him. My husband has even more luck. He's caught the Shelder 4 times for some reason.

- 2 more bronzes will make me reach the next rank in the 90% Crown Club. Perhaps Crystal Golem and Warmonger - or Soul Binder and Manaforge Smith?


Oooh, that sounds illustrious! Congrats in advance!

daughter of the King my advice would be the same as Gymfan's... it's not really used after the Warpath, and even if you do treasure maps, not many advanced areas use Physical traps.

Gymfan I hope you get more drops soon! I hate being in a dry spell where the game makes me farm for months for everything.

@Dot, obviously the top level areas don't use physical traps, but if you're the type of person to do lots of treasure maps, it's one of the ones I use the most.
To be honest, the devs threw out a tidbit a while back in FBF about needing all of the top level traps in some future high level area. Now, I was under the impression it was just an idea way down the line, not something in the near future, but it's my personal opinion that it's worth snagging, just in case. :)

I'm just about done with two of my four goals. I have two Warpath Portal Projectors now, one to snag the Artillery Commander and another to save for the Egg Hunt.

I also have just three more Acolytes to catch at most before I get the new trap. However, this particular time in the BWRift isn't giving me much more than Ancient and Runic portals, so I'm going slow. LOL

Event season totally sneaked on me this year. I didn't even think about the fact that Halloween is close until Varna posted on FB last night re: the ghost ships showing up on the app map. Well, I sped up my Acolyte attempt by skipping the Acolyte Influence blessing :( in the hopes that we could finish our map. It's got the Harbinger of Death on it and he's playing hard to get.

Kind of waiting on that to really start in on the Halloween event, but I think I've read through enough of the news info that I have a pretty good idea of what's going on. And I also see that I'm just not in a good spot for this event. Moussu Picchu is ideal but I don't really want to use regular cheese as I still have stashes of the high level cheese to use up first. But I may as well save it for later.

However, the Spooky Shuffle has been updated to include some super amazing drops to help out with the BWRift and MP. Glad I had saved 81 tickets from last year. :D

Actually, FK, I've found that MoPi is a great place to farm GGG (I'm just hunting like normal and it's showing up every other hunt or so). And I'm getting ready for a Fulmina run, so I plan to use my Cannonballs there; that will be worth a gooood amount of points. That's my best shot for clearing the Ancient Apparition because I JUST started a Laby run so I'm nowhere near a boss mouse.

For the Phantom of the Plane, I'm prolly going to go use up some FRift cheese I've got stashed up; I was just about to start a run at the 9th battery so this is good timing.

For reference, here's the different ships with the point requirements to defeat as well as how long the aura lasts. I'm trying to clear three quick ones to get my Aura going and finish the Adventure, but after that, I'll probably just work on the last two since they are the areas I'd like to get bonus loot for.

The Gnawnian Ghoul: 8,000/15h
The Martial Mayhem: 85,000/18h
The Soul of the Sea: 560,000/20h
The Demon of the Desert: 630,000/22h
The Ancient Apparation: 1,575,000/1d
The Phantom of the Plane: 1,620,000/1d6h

I've taken out two Phantom of the Plane ghost ships. The drops weren't quite what I was hoping for, though they certainly weren't bad. I'll probably turn my attention to The Ancient Apparition instead.

I'm extremely, extremely close to both the Dragonvine Ballista (less than 40 scales) and Timespit Rune (two more Acolytes) traps. The Halloween event is distracting me and therefore annoying me. :)) Probably not the best attitude to have. But once I'm done farming cannonballs I'm going back to MoPi to farm more dragonscales and shoot some ghost ships. ;)

Is there a list somewhere of which Halloween mice appear in which location? Trying to finish up the treasure map too.

FK, on the forum someone made a list; lemmie dig it up:

https://www.mousehuntgame.com/forum/sho ... nt-mouse-X (just scroll down; the best list is about halfway down the page I think).

I've sunk several ships; I think...4? I'm getting ready to go on a nice big Fulmina run so that will sink one or two more, plus I've still got an AA and FRift mice I can take out to sink those ships. I might also go back and so some of the easier ships for the aura; the Town of Gnawnia one is extremely easy to sink; so is the Dojo one.

The rewards of the ships are nice but I think the aura is better; I'm going to see how many extensions I can get before the event is over.

I'm thinking of busting out my other completed Chrome chest so I can have a luck and power aura going on at the same time; oooooOOOOOooohhhh. :D

I was so proud of having done some real preparation for this Halloween event. I found in the MH Wiki that the M400 mouse was one of the best for points, and not too hard to get, I only had to do a library assignment for it.

I did the assignment, and now have the last part of the assignment ready to go for: Catch the M400 in Elub Shore.
Only Elub Shore isn't a Ghostship area ...

My first ship was brought down in Town in Gnawnia, and it took me around 25 Cannonballs - more than I had expected, but perhaps my expectations were wrong. The next few were in Furoma, hunting the Dojo Sensei with around 1000 OG cheese. That's still an area to go back to when I run out of higher level cheese.

Now I'm in Fungal Cavern, have only one Diamond cheese left, but am also getting good points (and ship damage) from the mice I can catch with Gemstone cheese. Perhaps I can even bronze one or two of those mice. I just need more minerals - tons of minerals ... When I've run out of Gemstone cheese, I'll go to Moussu Picchu.

I have the aura for a couple more days, and I'm hoping to extend it all the way to 1st December, when it stops and will "completely dissipate".

That is indeed frustrating, Bee...I thought about prepping for a M400 too, but now I'm glad I didn't...with my luck, it wouldn't have been within a ship area either!

So I didn't realize that they had Halloween tournies, and I burned through 9 pieces of Lockbox Limburger beforehand...whoops. :(( The extra Shuffle tickets and Cannonballs woulda been nice, but oh well! We still got some.

I'd be happy to do another tourney towards the end of Halloween, if anyone wants to join me in saving up all our LL cheese for a massive joint run.

Heading out on a week trip tomorrow; I think I'll still be able to hunt well but it's always a bit harder when you're not at home.
