Maps and Keys

From MHWiki
(Redirected from Living Garden Key)
"Map" redirects here. For other uses, see Treasure Map.

As hunters travel around the world of MouseHunt, they will occasionally find maps and keys while catching mice. These inventory items grant hunters access to new locations. The difficulty in acquiring a particular map or key depends on the difficulty of the mouse relative to their trap power. As only some mice hold them, hunters will usually need to catch at least a few before finding what they want. Some map pieces must be crafted, or purchased from a Cartographer.

In many cases, it is possible for a hunter to obtain a map piece while ranked with a lower Title than what is required to travel to the locations unlocked by that map piece.

The map pieces owned by a hunter can be found on the Map Pieces tab under the Travel section. Additionally, each Hunter's Profile includes a status of how many of the 28 map pieces a hunter owns, as one of the lists on the Items tab.


Gnawnia Map Piece

You start the game with this basic map piece, which gives you access to the Meadow, Town of Gnawnia, the Windmill, the Harbour and the Mountains.

The Gnawnia Map Piece grants hunters access to all locations within the Gnawnia region. All hunters start with the map already in their inventory.


King's Gauntlet Floorplan

This floor plan has been commissioned directly by the King of Gnawnia. Below the King’s seal is this note: Vend only to those who show remarkable valour in the name of the royal crown, and its jewels. The Cartographer has been working hard to produce a surplus of floor plans!

The King's Gauntlet Floorplan grants hunters access to the King's Gauntlet. It can be obtained by buying the map from the Cartographer in the Bazaar for 50,000 gold, after catching a Master Burglar Mouse with a Crown Jewel.

Trivia: When the King's Gauntlet was released, the Floorplan's description included the following sentence, For a limited time, when you order a Floor plan it will be ready in an hour instead of the normal two days! However, when the introductory collection time of 1 hour was no longer available, the completion time was changed to 1 day rather than the 2 days originally suggested. Prior to July 29 2015, the Floorplan was obtained at the Harbour instead of the Bazaar.

Whisker Woods

Calm Clearing Map Piece

The Calm Clearing Map Piece grants hunters access to the Calm Clearing, Claw Shot City and Gnawnian Express Station

New Description and source

A pirate crew in the Harbour dropped this map, which depicts a peaceful-looking clearing in the Whisker Woods region.

Hunters must earn 5 Pirate Bounties in the Harbour. Each bounty will award one A Map Scrap and when all 5 are combined through the Harbour HUD, the Hunter will be awarded with the Calm Clearing Map Piece.

Old Description and Source

A Granite mouse dropped this piece of map, which depicts a peaceful-looking clearing in the Whisker Woods region.

The Calm Clearing Map Piece grants hunters access to the Calm Clearing and Claw Shot City. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Granite Mouse in the Harbour.


  • The name was changed from Whisker Woods Clearing Map Piece with the introduction of the Adventure Book.

Great Gnarled Tree Map Piece

This map piece, which is dropped by Cyclops mice in the Calm Clearing, allows you to travel to the Great Gnarled Tree.

The Great Gnarled Tree Map Piece grants hunters access to the Great Gnarled Tree. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Cyclops Mouse in the Calm Clearing.

Map of the Lagoon

The Fairy Mice of the Great Gnarled Tree dropped this map piece, which shows the way to the Lagoon. This looks like a dangerous area, and may require special bait.

The Map of the Lagoon grants hunters access to the Lagoon. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Fairy Mouse carrying the map in the Great Gnarled Tree.


Laboratory Map Piece

A Ninja* mouse dropped a map piece for you to find! There's a path to what looks like a Laboratory printed on it.

The Laboratory Map Piece grants hunters access to the Laboratory. It can be obtained by successfully catching an Abominable Show Mouse in the Mountain.

The map piece was temporarily obtainable as a gift from the Festive Gift Shoppe during the Great Winter Hunt '09 event. Hunters could not purchase the map piece for themselves but instead had to receive it as a gift from another hunter.

  • The map piece was a loot drop from the Ninja Mouse until the hunting mechanics were changed in the Mountain on 7 November 2017. The map piece description is currently incorrect and still lists the Ninja Mouse as the source.

Key to the Town of Digby

This key, which is dropped by Dwarf mice in the laboratory, grants access to the Town of Digby. Don't forget your mining helmet!

The Key to the Town of Digby grants hunters access to the Town of Digby. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Dwarf Mouse in the Laboratory.

Tattered Mousoleum Map

The Zombie mouse did quite a number on this old map piece... it shows the way to The Mousoleum, but if you get it repaired, it may reveal an even spookier location.

The Tattered Mousoleum Map grants hunters access to the Mousoleum. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Zombie Mouse in the Town of Digby.

Ticket to the Burroughs Bazaar

The Shredded Furoma Map Piece grants hunters access to the Training Grounds. It can be obtained by successfully catching a Lycan Mouse in the Mousoleum.

Stitched Furoma Map Piece

Hunters often find pieces of the Furoma map slightly shredded by the claws of mice. A skilled cartographer is able to restore this shredded map by stitching a patch over the damaged area to reveal additional detail.

The Stitched Furoma Map Piece grants hunters access to the Dojo, Meditation Room, and Pinnacle Chamber. It can only be obtained by taking the Shredded Furoma Map Piece to the Cartographer in the Bazaar for repair.

Prior to 29 July 2015, the repair took approximately a day to finish. During this time, the hunter wasn't able to access the Training Grounds if that was their only copy of the map.

Bristle Woods

Repaired Mousoleum Map Piece

Research suggests that mystery lies below the Mousoleum! This patch can be applied to a Tattered Mousoleum Map to reveal new possible hunting grounds. Restoring ancient cloth requires a great deal of time and skill and does not come cheap.

The Cartographer suspects that a hunter will need the title of Legendary to understand the secrets revealed.

The Repaired Mousoleum Map Piece grants hunters access to the Catacombs. It can be obtained by taking the Tattered Mousoleum Map to the Cartographer in the Bazaar for repair. The repairs costs 160,000 gold.

Zugzwang's Scarf

This strange scarf came out of the Dragon's Chest. Apparently, Zugzwang was serious about keeping the moths out of his clothing. The scarf is surprisingly heavy even considering it's odd construction. It doesn't seem to be a very comfortable scarf either, however, Bubbles the giant overprotective octopus seems cowed by its intangible air of power. He should let you travel to the mysterious floating island as long as you have his master's scarf in hand.

Zugzwang's Scarf gives access to the Seasonal Garden. It can be obtained from the Dragon's Chest or as loot from Icewing.

Zugzwang's Tower Key

In this key, the four seasonal powers combine to overwhelm the seal on Zugzwang's Tower. Unlock the door, but beware: the mice within this tower play a dangerous game, and only the strongest player will achieve a checkmate.

The Crystal Library Card gives access to Crystal Library. There is a chance of obtaining it when catching a Knight, Bishop, Rook or Queen from either side of the Zugzwang's Tower.

Sunken Souvenir

Sandtail lore speaks of a city that was once perched on the far eastern cliffs of the desert until the arid soil cracked and shifted, causing the city to slide into the sea. The story is popular amoungst the thirsty mice in the desert. Just imagine, a city with an endless supply of water!

This small souvenir is said to lead the way to the Sunken City where challenges for Count/Countess hunters and above await.

The Sunken Souvenir gives access to the Sunken City. It can be purchased from the Muridae Market Cartographer for 228,000 Gold and 90 Molten Glass.

During the week of 2-9 July 2014, this additional paragraph was present in the description, and hunters did not need the 90 Molten Glass:
The Cartographer normally charges 90 Molten Glass for this souvenir. However, for a limited time, the cost of the glass is being waived to have hunters explore the Sunken City as soon as possible!

Varmint Valley

Fort Rox Battle Summons

The King's Royal Defense Marshal has sent a battle summons to all available hunters requesting assistance in defending Fort Rox. Provide some Fool's Gold to prove your worth in taking up this challenge!

Beyond the sandy mountains of Varmint Valley, a rather large chunk of meteorite has burrowed itself into the ground. Around this crater, a fort has sprung up in order to defend the valley from the strangely transformed mice that have begun to invade the area.

An area of danger and adventure for Baron/Baroness hunters and above to explore!

Sandtail Desert

Sandtail Call to Arms

Noble Hunter,

Word of your capture of the Zugzwang's King Mice has reached Gnawnia! I wish to congratulate you, however, we'll have to postpone celebrations.

A powerful army of mice is preparing to invade Gnawnia by route of the Lagoon. Your experience makes you the perfect hunter to help. Please, head West of the Lagoon to the Sandtail Desert before it's too late!

Hollow Heights

Fungal Cavern Map Piece

A recent settling of sand near the southern edge of the desert has revealed a hidden passageway into an underground cavern.

An area of danger and adventure for Duke/Duchess hunters and above to explore!

The Fungal Cavern Map Piece grants access to the Fungal Cavern. It is priced at 230,000 gold and can be obtained from the Cartographer at the Muridae Market.

Labyrinth Key

This is some kind of strange and intricate device made entirely of stone. It seems to depict a large maze carved into a miniaturized mountain range. As you examine the small device, minuscule floors of the complex maze slowly shift and move around creating an infinitely more incomprehensible maze. Some hunters have discovered a relief in the deepest depths of the Fungal Cavern that when deposited, causes the walls to shift, open up and reveal an entrance to the Labyrinth.

A dangerous design that can be deciphered by hunters ranked no less than that of Duke/Duchess. Those of lesser rank seem not to make it back...

The Labyrinth Key grants access to the Labyrinth and the city of Zokor . It requires 1 Crystal Crucible and 30,000 gold and can be obtained from the Cartographer in the Fungal Cavern.

Moussu Picchu Climbing Route

This route map reveals a long and treacherous mountain passage that seems to lead high up into the sky. Thick clouds make it difficult to see what lies ahead and strong gusts of wind make the daunting climb difficult.

You will need to gather a set of climbing gear from Zokor before the Cartographer will give you the route.

While you are climbing, keep an eye out for a nameless trail leading to a lookout point that gives you a crazy nice panoramic view of a neighbouring lake.

This treacherous route can only be surmounted by hunters ranked Grand Duke/Duchess or above.

The Moussu Picchu Climbing Route grants access to Moussu Picchu. It requires 1 Climbing Grapnel of Tech dropped by the Manaforge Smith, 1 Climbing Boots of Fealty dropped by the Paladin Weapon Master, 1 Climbing Vine of Scholars dropped by the Soul Binder and 50,000 gold and can be obtained from the Labyrinth Cartorgrapher or Zokor Cartographer.
