Hunter's Title

From MHWiki
(Redirected from Grand Duke/Duchess)

Hunter's Titles are indicators of experience and seniority in MouseHunt. As hunters catch more mice, they become more experienced, based on the quality and quantity of mice caught. More experienced hunters gain access to new areas (with the appropriate Maps and Keys) and become more effective at crafting and using potions.

* The in-game count excludes event locations, and does not distinguish between normal and twisted realm, while the above table does count the twisted locations.

The Toxic Spill severity level restricts which ranks may enter it. The lowest possible rank that may enter the Toxic Spill is Hero. The location counts above include the Toxic Spill for ranks for Hero and greater.

Title Advancement

Hunters advance through each title from going on hunts and trap checks. The higher a hunter's title, the longer it takes to advance to the next title for the same mice caught. Every hunt gives some base progress, which is slightly more in an active hunt (own horn) than a passive hunt (trap check or friend's horn). This base progress is always made even for unsuccessful hunts — that is, when a mouse is not attracted or when one steals points or cheese. If one catches a mouse, additional progress is made based on the breed of mouse caught. The additional progress and points of the mouse caught are somewhat correlated, although not perfectly. For example, the same chess piece from opposing sides of Wizard's Pieces have different points but award the same title advancement upon capture.

Opening a Tome of Wisdom also contributes to title advancement, but not the bonus points earned through Lab Research, Acolyte Relics etc. Claiming Adventure Book rewards also contribute to advancement.

Upon reaching the next title, a message will appear on the Hunter's Journal notifying the hunter on the new title. Hunters will also receive rewards depending on the title attained. In addition, hunters can also share 1 King's Credit each with 3 friends by publishing it to their news feed.

History and Trivia

  • Before 30 June 2010, the Recruit and Initiate titles did not exist. The old "Novice" was split into Novice and Recruit, and the old "Apprentice" was split into Apprentice and Initiate.
  • Previously, the shield images of Lady, Baroness, and Countess had a pink outline instead of the blue outline of their male and unidentified gender equivalents. In all other ways, these shields were the same.
  • Duchess was originally spelled as Dutchess. The devs changed this on 12 October 2010, only a few hours after the title was introduced.
  • Grand Duchess was originally spelled as Grand Dutchess. It was changed on 5 July 2011, approximately ten days after the title was received.
  • Viceroy, Elder, and Sage ranks were established on 29 August 2017. The ranking system underwent an overhaul that saw some Hunters receive a boost in rank advancement.
  • Fabled ranks was revealed when the first hunter ranked up from Sage.
