Welcome Ithy!!!

I'm finally back in Dracano after the dragon. (*points to her earlier question about whether or not she needs more than one to get into Balack's Cove)

Edit: Ignore the pointing... I thought only Dragon Mice dropped Embers, but I just got one from a Whelping Mouse, so nevermind. :ymblushing:

Edit 2: I missed out again, so I'm going back into the Jungle of Dread

Yeah, the dragon is one of the toughest mice in the game to catch (as such, I caught him on my first horn sound in Dracano ;)) ). Ask me to catch a tough mouse and I can do it every time, but ask me to catch a SB only mouse, and my trap automatically reverts to the tacky glue trap. . . Oh well :P

Keep at it, Wolf!

Can you believe it, I am a rat hunter and I love it! I am so addicted to this game, that I get up at three in the morning just to make sure I have cheese. For those of you who do not know, this is Dig's Mom. My quest is to catch the pirate rat. He will be dead meat very soon. LOL Dig,s has been so great in helping old mom here. He is feeding my addiction to this game! LOL Well, ta ta for now and love to all.


Long live Aslan

Argh, this is annoying. I have 70 or so Inferno Peppers and no Fire Salt. So I'm farming Fire Salt in JoD and it's going so slow! Since I've got here, I've had 18 trap checks/horn sounds and I've only caught five mice. I'm using Power charms and the Dragon Jade Base to up my power as much as possible because I'm using the Soul Catcher.

I have 1.35 million gold so I'm debating just going for it and buying the Gorgon trap. At this rate, it's going to take a long time before I get enough Fire Salt to craft a bunch of Inferno Havarti cheese.

I got a crown too. What are they for? Am I supposed to use them for something?

Also, if you have a ticket for the raffle, do you have to do anything more to enter the raffle, or are you entered automatically?

Crowns up until very recently were solely for bragging rights. However they introduced that deal where you can share charms with friends and more importantly you'll eventually need at least 80 Silver Crowns (100 catches) to go after the crown collector mouse.

As for the raffle you should be automatically entered.

Here's my game plan:

-catch that Dragon Mouse!
-collect 4 Dragon Embers
-craft Balack's Lantern & the Molten Shrapnel base
-head into Balacks Cove.
-Continue gaining crowns in JoD & the Guantlet when you're not in Balack's Cove/Dracano
-Level Up and hit the Seasonal Gardens

since i am getting owned by everything, i decided to just buy some cavalry charms and change to my SW, which to be frank i haven't used yet :)
I really hope i get enough streaks to just simply annihilate everything...1-0-6-40-1...so yeah, if i get a streak of 6 and just use commander, ill obliterate the wave, which is a good idea, after this will be my epic battle with the Warmonger, then im going to Furoma to charge up on some gold, or should i just go Muridae and get a cartographer and charm shop?
Oh well, thats for later :)
Good luck Wolf on your goals, hope you can achieve them real soon :_

I am having rotten luck in clearing out the last of my archers. I was really hoping to get rid of them overnight, but that didn't happen ;)).

26-0-2-32-0-5

I'll hopefully get rid of them within the next hour. Then I'll probably take on the warriors. If I can get another streak of 5, that would be great, because I could take out those pesky artillery mice.

We'll see how it goes, but either way, I'll probably finish up this warpath run before the end of the week. I'm really hoping that I get another SBM out of this run! If I do, it'll be time to farm gold like mad!

Wow! My goodness, look at all the catching up I have to do since Friday morning. ;))

My story was the opposite of DiGs's. While the Nerg Chieftain remains the mouse in the game that I've had the most trouble catching (based on the fact it shouldn't have been hard), the Dragon is the mouse that took me the longest. About 5-6 months to be precise. And while that was partially due to bad luck, it also had to do with the fact that I was an idiot and used all of my early stash of Havarti up with the Portal trap. (Back in the day, the only shadow traps were the two baby portal traps, the worthless Bottomless Pit, and the Clockapult of Time.) So that length of time included my farming gold to buy the Clockapult. And then of course after that I still had trouble catching the Dragon but at least my progress was streamlined. ;))

Long story short, if you don't catch the Dragon soon, you may find that your progress is being crippled by burning through more Havarti cheese than you should and you may want to jump for the Gorgon. :) Good luck!

Oh, and wolf, congrats on your silver crown on the Sock Puppet. :D

I have noticed the past several the weekends that Mousehunt has a whole lot of server lag. I click the horn and it sits there and sounds for a good several seconds (sometimes up to two minutes) before the page refreshes. Sometimes when the page refreshes the horn is still there and I haven't gone on a hunt. Sometimes I will have gone on a hunt but I'll check a different page and come back and a different mouse is in my journal. I know it's on their end of things because usually when this starts to happen I'll get a 504 Gateway Timeout (or whatever it is). It's really annoying but I just keep on clicking the buttons til it works. ;))

Welcome to the game both of you!! :ymhug: Ithilwen, if you decide you like it, I'll shoot you some gold to help you get started. :D And Mother Rose, if you want more Mousehunting friends for gift exchanges or raffle tickets or whatever, let me know and I'll send you a friend invite on Facebook. :)
And Mother Rose, welcome to NarniaWeb too! :D

I noticed you were catching new Woods mice all weekend. :D Best of luck when you head to the Catacombs. :D

Congrats on your Sphynx trap. :D That'll definitely make those Cavalry Mice easier, and I'm not sure, but I think the Sphynx might do better in the Market than the Crobot. :)

Considering your trap, that's actually pretty decent. Or maybe it's completely average. Whatever, it's not a bad catch rate for that location. :P As I told wolf, it might not hurt to invest in the Gorgon trap just so you're not burning through so much Havarti.

wolf wrote:-craft ... the Molten Shrapnel base
Still want to craft it after you've gotten the Jade Base? ;)

wil wrote:or should i just go Muridae and get a cartographer and charm shop?
You may already know this, but in case you don't, you have to build the General Store to build the other two. It's where you get Molten Glass.

DiGs wrote:I am having rotten luck in clearing out the last of my archers. I was really hoping to get rid of them overnight, but that didn't happen .
Yeah, last night I went to bed needing the Warmonger and ONLY the Warmonger. I figured I'd get him overnight, no problem. But two hunts after I went to bed and he had stolen all of my cheese so I didn't even go on hunts overnight. :P After buying more this morning, I crushed him. :P ;))

So my team is being really ambitious today and doing TWO tournaments. ;)) The indigenous tournament this morning and then the Mousoleum tournament this evening. I hope my team isn't about ready to kill me doing all of these tournaments. :)) If they are, they haven't told me yet. ;)) The good news is that we're consistently doing better. The bad news is that less people are signing up, so it's becoming more and more difficult to place.

*Coughtrapcollectorcough*
Seriously though it has a higher attraction bonus and higher power bonus than either of the jade bases, giving me more options.

*forgot to add tourneys to her goal list :P

I got enough Fire Salt to craft 12 Inferno Havarti (on top of 12 that I already had). Yesterday evening, I went into Dracano and promptly caught the Draconic Warden and Whelpling. This morning, I woke up and discovered that one of my trap checks during the night netted me the Dragon! I headed back to Jungle of Dread really quickly this morning because I missed arming Gouda in there and catching the Swarm of Pygmy mice. So I caught that this morning and now I'm probably going to head into Balack's Cove. I have a lot of Vanilla Beans already: 208 because whenever I had the option to use event coins, I would use them for Vanilla Beans and other crafting stuff. I've heard that Balack is very difficult to catch. I don't even know if 208 will be enough though.

I'm decided to head to Derr really quickly before heading to Balack's Cove. The Mintaka is the only mouse I have left to catch in the Tribal Isles (not including the mice of Balack's Cove) and I'd like to get it out of the way.

Thanks, wolf. I hope you get your Dragon mouse soon!

I just noticed hearts and an arrow on my shield so I checked the news. The Valentine's Day event has started.

There's a new mouse (I think it's new. I don't remember seeing it in the mice list before and there's no page for it in the Wiki) called the Forever Alone mouse. The Town of Gnawnia, Laboratory, Calm Clearing, S.S. Huntington II, and Muridae Market are the locations that we're supposed to "head to ... to celebrate" so I'm assuming those are the only places where the Never Alone mouse can be found.

You can also get Valentine's Charms which add 25% attraction bonus from mice in those areas. The event ends on the 16th.

I think I'm going to head to the S.S. Huntington II. It's close and I still have three uncaught mice in that area so I figure I can kill two birds with one stone: get in on the event and knock out a few more uncaught mice.

In other news, I caught the Mintaka this morning! Now, I've caught at least one of every mouse in the Tribal Isles except for Balack's Cove.
