Deep below the cursed soil of the Mousoleum are underground caverns that stretch to the west where long-forgotten mice roam. These powerful mice are highly resistant to most types of damage and apparently have a weakness for Radioactive Blue cheese. The creatures of the Catacombs seem strangely organized, as if they are preparing for something. Who knows what sinister secrets a hunter may uncover here...?
Description and requirements
The Catacombs is a location in the Bristle Woods region requiring a minimum rank of Legendary and the Repaired Mousoleum Map to enter. Since the area is connected to the Mousoleum it contains the higher-level Shadow type mice and the Forgotten type mice only found in the Bristle Woods region. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.

- Highlighted mice are less than 1% of the population and are infrequently encountered in this location.
Hunters have several Trap Setup Options for the Catacombs. Purchasing the Obelisk of Slumber can help significantly in catching The Forgotten Mice. Hunting with Antiskele Charms armed will repel Skeleton mice from a hunter's trap.
Hunters who wish to craft the Obelisk of Incineration should think twice before they do so. Although it has more power than the Obelisk of Slumber, it has a lower attraction rate, hence it doesn't guarantee a higher catch rate. Luckily, the Obelisk of Incineration can be smashed and by using the yielding Obelisk Parts and a Bead of Slumber the Obelisk of Slumber can be crafted again. Note that it uses up 2 Scrap Metal which will slightly delay crafting of the much better Arcane Capturing Rod of Never Yielding Mystery.
The other option, if a hunter has crafted the Obelisk of Incineration, is to purchase the Explosive Base or craft the Molten Shrapnel Base so they have a Stale Cheese generator. By using Cheddar or White Cheddar cheese on Obelisk of Incineration with Molten Shrapnel Base or Explosive Base, Stale Cheese may be produced, and later can be used to craft Ancient cheese.
Radioactive Blue cheese tends to attract more of The Shadow Clan mice, whereas Ancient cheese attracts more of The Forgotten Mice. Moon cheese may be used to attract more Lycan mice. Radioactive Blue cheese is the most economical option, but Ancient may be more useful for collecting Scrap Metal as it will attract more Scavenger and Terror Knight mice.
Undead Emmental cheese is the only bait capable of attracting the Grave Robber, Ravenous Zombie and Zombot Unipire mice. It also attracts the other 'undead' mice, specifically the Ghost, Mummy, Skeleton, Terror Knight, Vampire and Zombie mice.
Hunting tips by Larry
Zounds! And I thought the Mousoleum was creepy!
The rodent horrors that wander these catacombs have existed since before the founding of Gnawnia, and have been forgotten by the rest of the world. Hunting these Forgotten mice is incredibly challenging since they have few known weaknesses. You will need Radioactive Blue cheese to attract the mice of the Catacombs.
Forgotten mice can be caught using a Shadow trap, but Arcane traps work better. Visit the Trapsmith here to purchase the Obelisk of Slumber -- an Arcane trap with a minty fresh scent! The General Store also stocks a couple of very interesting blueprints detailing how to build even more powerful Arcane traps.
Located deep within the Catacombs is a hallway too dark to navigate. Hunters often speak of Keeper mice wandering down the corridor using a magical candle to light the path. Perhaps, if you were to obtain one of these candles, you could do the same.
