Welcome to the MouseHunt Wiki, where users contribute their knowledge of the MouseHunt world for the benefit of the community.

MouseHunt is a popular game in which players, referred to as hunters, catch mice with a variety of traps and cheeses in order to earn experience points and virtual gold through passive gameplay. From time to time the developers add new locations and mice as well as sponsor thousands of dollars for periodic giveaways and tournaments. MouseHunt was developed by HitGrab Inc. as a Facebook application and released to a small group for beta testing in early 2008. On 7 March 2008, MouseHunt was officially released to the general public. Just nine months later, MouseHunt earned its creators a $250,000 development grant from Facebook and the game continues to grow in popularity.

This wiki exists to inform and to educate the community of MouseHunters and those who have an interest in the MouseHunt world and its intricacies.

Current Events

Explore the Floating Islands

8 September 2020

Take flight with Ronza and explore the skies!
The time has come to put your very own dirigible to use and take flight above Hollow Heights!

Explore the Floating Islands

Have you repaired the Skyfarer's Oculus? Have you used it to track down the four magical Warden Stones from the Storm Dragons of Moussu Picchu and taken possession of your very own airship? If so, then prepare to take flight with Ronza's armada of airships and embark on a brand new adventure!

Take on a new, permanent adventure: Explore the Floating Islands
Hunters of rank Archduke/Archduchess (and above) can now take to the skies!

Taking Flight from the Launch Pad

Upon arriving at the Floating Islands, you'll find yourself at the Launch Pad where your airship is tethered and awaiting your arrival.

Before embarking on your first flight, it may be wise to hunt the Launch Pad mice to recover morsels of tasty Cloud Curd which the local Cheese Shoppe can convert into Cloud Cheesecake. This fluffy yet richly-flavoured cheesy treat is a favourite among the mice that inhabit the skies above Hollow Heights. Ronza recommends stocking up with 75 pieces before embarking on your first flight.

  • 100 Cloud Cheesecake
A favourite for skyfarers!
  • 500 Cloud Cheesecake
Long haul hunting!

With a stash of Cloud Cheesecake at the ready, use the Sky Map to chart a course to a Floating Island of your choosing. Your Skyfarer's Oculus will allow you to focus in on the random islands on the horizon and see what resources and possible mice you'll encounter when you arrive.

Exploring a Floating Island

Upon landing on a Floating Island, take note of the island's landscape which indicates its power type and the breeds of mice you'll encounter. You'll want to arm an appropriate trap and have it baited with Cloud Cheesecake.

Have a specific power type setup you plan to always use? Access your airship's Trap Library via the heads-up display to save a favourite setup and associate it with that specific island's power type. Next time you visit an island of that power type the trap library will automatically switch your setup. Neat!

Your objective while hunting on a Floating Island is to explore its landscape in order to discover all the resources it has to offer. As you explore by catching mice, you'll uncover areas of the island which determine the type and quantity of loot you'll find and can even provide a boost to your exploration speed.

Failing to capture a mouse will allow it to alert the others to your presence and progress their plan for an ambush! The heads-up display will show your exploration progress as well as the ambush advancing towards you as two progress bars. Be extra careful when the bars meet, the resulting battle can undo your exploration efforts!

  • 30 Bottled Wind
Speed up exploration!
  • 100 Bottled Wind
Boost resource drops!

Defeating Four Sky Wardens

When selecting an island, pay special attention to ones which have a Warden Shrine present. Each magical weather shrine is guarded by one of the four Sky Wardens who harness its power to control the weather.

The shrines are projecting their magic even higher into the sky to create a dangerous storm that prevents flight to higher altitudes. Visit the islands with these shrines and defeat the Sky Wardens there to temporarily clear the weather and allow you to explore the High Altitude Islands.

Explore an island where a Warden Shrine is present Encounter a powerful Sky Warden when the two progress bars on the HUD meet. With the Sky Warden defeated, you may either continue to explore the island to gather more resources or return to the Launch Pad to choose your next island. The Sky Map will keep track of how many Sky Wardens you've defeated as you work towards eliminating all four.

Upgrading your Oculus and Customizing your Airship

As you explore the Floating Islands, you'll find Sky Ore and Sky Glass which can be used to upgrade your Skyfarer's Oculus by visiting the Workshop on the Launch Pad. Each upgrade will increase the quantity and variety of island resources you can find! Larger deposits of Sky Ore and Sky Glass, stashes of Cloud Curd, valuable Loot Caches, and even Sky Pirate Dens can be revealed by your upgraded oculus.

Upgrade your oculus in the Workshop to find more lucrative islands.

While your Skyfarer's Oculus will help you find more lucrative islands to explore, you can also customize the look of your airship in the Workshop to soar through the sky in style! There are a few cosmetic upgrades for sale at the Floating Island General Store and you may just find more rare cosmetics as you explore the islands. Some of these scarce and stylish cosmetics can be exchanged on the marketplace.

Confronting Paragons on High Altitude Islands

Once you have defeated four Sky Wardens, your Sky Map will change and allow you to chart a High Altitude Island where powerful Sky Paragons and more valuable resources await!

When selecting a High Altitude Island, the power type of the island determines which Paragon you encounter and the type of Paragon Loot Shrine present determines what resource that Paragon is protecting.

There are four unique types of Paragon loot: Sky Sprockets, Skysoft Silk, Enchanted Wings, and Cloudstone Bangles. Collect two of each to purchase an Adorned Empyrean Jewel and unlock powerful new traps!

Upon defeating a Sky Paragon, the four Sky Wardens will regroup and cover the upper skies with powerful storms once again. You'll need to defeat the four wardens again before you can return to the High Altitude Islands.

Ascending to new Hollowed Heights

25 August 2020

What lies beyond the storms of Moussu Picchu?
Build your own dirigible and take flight to explore what lands may float above Hollow Heights.

Take Flight above Hollow Heights

With her airship docked in Gnawnia, Ronza has been busy studying the cause of the troublesome turbulence that plagued her flightpath through Hollow Heights airspace. She's long known the storms above Moussu Picchu to be supernatural in nature, but only recently discovered their origin is directly tied to Storm Dragons.

Above the peaks of Moussu Picchu, above even the clouds obscuring their summit, severe magical storms ravage the skies preventing any hunter from daring to explore the mysteries high above Hollow Heights. However, the relentless pursuit to understand the source of Ful'Mina the Mountain Queen's power, along with Ronza's recent flight data, has revealed a glimpse into how Storm Dragons can bend the power of weather to their will.

After close collaboration with Ronza, the Cartographer at Moussu Picchu has put forth a design plan for a dirigible capable of navigating through the magical storms!

Recovering an Oculus for Aerial Reconnaissance

Ronza's flight data has confirmed what many believed to be myth: Ful'Mina and the other Storm Dragons are in possession of four magical weather stones. These stones are believed to protect Storm Dragons from the intense weather energy they so easily control and are the secret to protecting an airship seeking passage above Hollow Heights.

Finding these stones, however, is no straightforward task. They're obscured from anyone not utilizing a Skyfarer's Oculus for aerial reconnaissance. Ancient legend states that this powerful lens is guarded by Ful'Mina herself, which means you must confront her at Moussu Picchu and pry the oculus from her powerful grasp.

Purchasing your Airship

Once you safely recover a fully functional Skyfarer's Oculus, you'll be able to seek out the four warden stones and purchase your very own dirigible!

Put your oculus to use by tracking down any of the Storm Dragon mice and recover a Fog Warden Stone, Frost Warden Stone, Rain Warden Stone, and Wind Warden Stone.

Finally, visit the Moussu Picchu Cartographer to have the four stones and oculus installed onto your very own dirigible!

Preparing for the First Air Expedition

With so many hunters about to become novice pilots, the King has expressed some concern for safety.

His Majesty has decreed that the first air expedition will be an armada of airships led by Ronza herself! Under the experienced tutelage of Ronza, the King is confident that the first coordinated flights by Gnawnian hunters will proceed without incident.

Hunters of rank Archduke/Archduchess (and above) who have secured their own Dirigible and Flight License on Tuesday, September 8 can be some of the very first to take flight and explore what lands are floating above Hollow Heights. Thereafter, any hunter is free to take flight without the direct supervision of Ronza.

The first air expedition will depart on Tuesday, September 8.
