Full of fresh air and plenty of sunshine, the Harbour seems to attract the types of mice who boast of sea salt in their veins.


Overview

The Harbour is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Initiate to enter.
The Harbour is the first area Hunters will access where mice can steal gold, points, or extra cheese and where they can visit a Cartographer and purchase a Treasure Map.

Hunters accessing the Harbour for the first time will only have access to Physical weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all Power Types, except the Pirate Mouse, Barmy Gunner, Bilged Boatswain, Cabin Boy, Corrupt Commodore, and Dashing Buccaneer which have a weakness only to Hydro, Physical and Tactical weapons.

Hunters must capture a Pirate Mouse to obtain a pirate bounty. When Hunters begin the search for the mice listed on the crew manifest provided by the Pirate Mouse, the Pirate Crew mice are added to the mouse population of the Harbour. Capturing all 3 mice listed on the crew manifest will reward the player with booty from the pirate bounty. Hunters must claim 5 Pirate Bounties which each reward A Map Scrap used to complete the Calm Clearing Map Piece.

Pirate Bounties

The Harbour HUD tracks the Hunter's open Pirate Bounty and progress on claiming the Calm Clearing Map Piece.

  • When Hunters first enter the Harbour, the HUD shows the following message:
Pirate ships are besieging the Harbour!
Catch a Pirate Mouse to reveal the crew manifest and recover stolen Map Scraps!
It also includes an image of a blank map in five pieces.
The Pirate Mouse sang like a canary!
He gave you clues on how to find his pirate crew…
Begin Search
Selecting Begin Search will reveal the ship crew manifest showing the 3 Pirate Crew mice that must be captured to complete the bounty. All 5 Pirate Crew mice will be added to the mouse population and can be attracted until the final mouse on the manifest is caught. The 5 mice are then removed from the mouse population and will not return until Hunters begin another bounty. The Pirate Mouse will continue to appear in the mouse population, but will not provide a new bounty until any open bounties are claimed.
  • An open bounty shows the following on the HUD:
Defeat the crew of [Ship Name]!
3 of these 5 mice will appear on the bounty:
A chest and Claim Booty that is greyed out until all 3 mice are captured.
  • Capturing a mouse on the bounty will check it off on the HUD and creates a journal entry:
I caught a member of the pirate crew!
It looks like this one was the ship's [crew position]. I found some clues about where they're hiding their ill-gotten loot!
  • Catching the last crew member creates a journal entry:
I caught a member of the pirate crew!
It looks like this one was the ship's [crew position].
This was the last member of the crew - time to loot their ship's pirate booty!
  • Capturing the final mouse will highlight the Claim Booty button on the HUD. Claiming the bounty opens a pop-up showing its contents and creates a journal entry:
I captured the crew of [Ship Name], and plundered the ship's Pirate Booty!
I looted:
[List of bounty loot]
With the crew defeated, the King's Coast Guard quickly scuttled the rogue vessel, sending it to the bottom of the ocean.
There are always more pirate crews to hunt!
  • The first 5 bounties claimed will reward A Map Scrap that fills in the incomplete map in the HUD.
Each bounty will also reward:
  • Once all 5 map scraps have been recovered, the Assemble Map button is highlighted and Hunters can then assemble the Calm Clearing Map Piece and gain access to the Calm Clearing location.
Because this method for obtaining the Calm Clearing Map Piece replaced an older method, Hunters who already own the Calm Clearing Map Piece will see a mouse-over on the HUD that reads:
Greetings, experienced Hunter!
While you've already found the path to the Calm Clearing, there are still pirates holding treasure nearby!

Mice

Almost all mice in this area are from the Indigenous Mice group and are weak to all Power Types.
The Pirate Mouse and Pirate Crew mice are part of the Aquatic Order and Hydro traps are very effective against them. Physical and Tactical traps are of normal effectiveness. All other Power Types are ineffective.

Pirate Mouse and Pirate Crew mice

Hunters must capture a Pirate Mouse in order to obtain a crew manifest that allows them to complete a Pirate Bounty. Opening a Pirate Bounty adds 5 Pirate Crew mice to the mouse population.
Pirate Crew mice are very plentiful while Pirate Bounties are active, but cannot be encountered without an open, uncompleted bounty.
Completing a bounty removes the Pirate Crew mice from the mouse population and claiming it will allow the Pirate Mouse to provide a new bounty.

Cheese Preference and Loot

Standard Cheese attracts most mice in the Harbour.
White Cheddar Cheese will reduce the mouse population by repelling the Brown, Grey, and White mice.
SUPER|brie+ will attract all mice in the Harbour.

Mice with Special Requirements

Hunting Strategy

Mice in the Harbour are attracted to Standard Cheeses. All but six mice are weak to all Power Types, except the Pirate Mouse, Barmy Gunner, Bilged Boatswain, Cabin Boy, Corrupt Commodore, and Dashing Buccaneer which have a weakness only to Hydro, Physical and Tactical weapons.

Hunters who reach the Rank of Journeyman will be able to travel to the Mountain and the Calm Clearing. Hunters will need to collect 5 A Map Scraps from Pirate Bounties to obtain the Calm Clearing Map Piece which allows travel to the Calm Clearing.

Adventure Book

Hunters can Discover the Harbour's Secrets by capturing a Pirate Mouse, earning bounties by defeating Pirate Crews, and assembling a Calm Clearing Map Piece.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Harbour, MouseHunter! I just love that cool breeze that comes in off the ocean, don’t you?

The mice in this area are a little bit cheekier than those found in Town of Gnawnia or the Meadow. They may just steal some of your points or gold if you fail to catch them.

If you need to upgrade your trap or purchase more cheese, you will have to travel back to town. If you’re in the market for a new trap, may I recommend a Rocketine trap or Mouse Trebuchet?

Be on the lookout for the dangerous pirate crews that are raiding the Harbour! Pirate mice are rumored to be carrying Map Scraps that could lead you to a new area. Capture a Pirate Mouse to reveal and capture their crew manifest and recover the Map Scraps, and then combine them to add a new hunting location to your map!

When you reach the next title of Journeyman, you'll be able to move to another hunting ground. View your map to see what locations you have discovered.

Happy hunting!

History and Trivia

  • Up until the end of May 2009, there was a ship in the Harbour as can be seen here. At the beginning of June, hunters noticed the ship was now sunken, leading to rumours of something lurking in the Harbour. These events were later explained by the release of the S.S. Huntington II area.
  • 13 July 2010: The Spotted Mouse is added to the Harbour.
  • 30 June 2010: The Fog, Magic, Pugilist, Scruffy, and Silvertail mice are added to the Harbour.
  • 11 April 2017: The Harbour was updated with a new HUD, a new mechanic for obtaining the Calm Clearing Map Piece, and Pirate Crews. 5 new Pirate Crew mice were added: Barmy Gunner, Bilged Boatswain, Cabin Boy, Corrupt Commodore, and Dashing Buccaneer.
  • 11 April 2017: Larry's Hunting Tips were updated. This sentence was removed and replaced with text relevant to the new Pirate Crew content. The original text read:
Be on the lookout for a particularly crafty Granite mouse that has been rumored to be carrying a torn piece of the map. Should you find this mouse and obtain the map piece, it will be added to your map, adding a new hunting location!
