Overview

The Mountain is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Journeyman to enter.
Mice in the Mountain may steal points, gold, or cheese.
Hunters accessing the Mountain for the first time will only have access to Physical weapons, but the mice here have a weakness to all Power Types, except the Ninja Mouse which has a weakness only to Tactical and Physical weapons.

Introduction to Charms

Purchase a Charm Conduit from the Mountain Charm Shoppe. The Mountain contains the only Charm Shoppe where Hunters can purchase the Charm Conduit, which allows the arming of Charms.

Smashing boulders and Crafting cheese

Hunters will arm charms to smash boulders to obtain Chedd-Ore Cheese which when armed, attracts mice which drop ingredients for Abominable Asiago.

HUD (Heads Up Display)

The HUD reflects the HP of boulders. All boulders have 1,000 HP. The current Charm armed is also displayed, with the amount of damage said Charm deals. Damage dealt is equivalent to the Power of the armed Charm

The HUD tracks the following items:

Hunters can directly arm or craft with any of the items tracked by the HUD.

Breaking Boulders

After purchasing a Charm Conduit from the Mountain Charm Shoppe for 3,000 gold, hunters can start to arm charms and break boulders. Hunting with Standard Cheeses in the Mountain will attract mice that drop Small Power Charms. Additionally, Charm Shoppes, King's Cart, Marketplace, Gifts or Events all over the kingdom can yield charms. All Charms can be armed after purchasing the Charm Conduit.

The main goal is to deal 1,000 damage to a boulder, which will yield a varying amount of Chedd-Ore Cheese. Damage dealt is determined by the Power stat of the Charm armed. Don't hesitate to use higher tiered Charms should you have access to them for quicker progress. Arming a Charm with 1,000 or more power will instantly break the boulder, rewarding Chedd-Ore Cheese in a single hunt.

Crafting Abominable Asiago

After Breaking boulders, arm the looted Chedd-Ore Cheese to attract Slope Swimmer Mice, Craggy Ore Mice and Mountain Mice. These 3 mice drop Faceted Sugar and Iced Curds which are used to craft Abominable Asiago to attract the Abominable Snow Mouse

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome, Mousehunter! You’re about to discover the stunning vistas and treacherous terrain of... The Mountain!

The Gold and Diamond mice found here are worth a handsome amount of gold and points. Extra income means that you may now be able to afford more expensive cheeses and more powerful traps. Don’t be afraid to head back to town and upgrade your trap and cheese if you have problems attracting or catching mice. You’ve earned it!

I should also warn you that a mysterious Ninja mouse has traveled to the Mountain from the North, carrying a piece of the map. Should you find this rare Ninja and acquire the map piece, it will unlock a new hunting location to the north!
