Overview

The S.S. Huntington IV is a location in the Rodentia region requiring a minimum rank of Legendary and having crafted the S.S. Huntington III map piece to enter. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.

Hydro weapons are strongly recommended when hunting aboard the S.S. Huntington IV.

Hunters will need to locate the Compass, Sextant, and Telescope from mice aboard the S.S. Huntington IV in order to craft the Ocean Navigation Kit. The Ocean Navigation Kit is required to travel to the Tribal Isles locations.

Crafting the S.S. Huntington III Map Piece

Hunters require the S.S. Huntington III map piece in order to travel to the S.S. Huntington IV. There are two ways in which this map piece can be crafted, but each requires the same crafting items and will cost the same amount of gold.

Cheese Preference and Loot

Standard Cheeses will attract all mice aboard the S.S. Huntington IV except the Cook Mouse

Mice with Special Requirements

Hunting Strategy

Mice aboard the S.S. Huntington IV are primarily weak to Hydro weapons, though Hunters can use Physical and Tactical weapons to lesser effect.

Standard Cheese will attract all mice found aboard the S.S. Huntington IV, except the Cook Mouse
The Cook Mouse is only attracted to SUPER|brie+
The Shelder Mouse is extremely rare regardless of bait used, but SUPER|brie+ provides a greater attraction, and Galleon Gouda provides the best attraction. Galleon Gouda is found as a reward inside Shelder Treasure Chests.

The Ocean Navigation Kit is required to travel to the Tribal Isles region. Hunters must find the Compass, Sextant, and Telescope while hunting aboard the S.S. Huntington IV in order to craft the Ocean Navigation Kit.

Adventure Book

Hunters can Navigate the Rodentia Ocean by crafting the Ocean Navigation Kit.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome aboard, MouseHunter!

What a lovely job you did constructing this vessel. . . it’s a pity that it’s overrun with mice already.

If you want to clean up a bit, you should know that many of the mice here live in the open water. As such, you will find them especially weak to Hydro traps, which you can buy from the Trapsmith onboard.

If you're looking to sail far off into the ocean, you'll need to build yourself an Ocean Navigation Kit. I'm sure some of the mice here will have stolen the necessary components at some point or other...

History and Trivia

  • Two days after MouseHunters noticed that the ship in the map of the Harbour was changed to a wreck, this location was discovered. According to developers, the location was named "Huntington because it has the word hunting in the name. It's named as the second because the first one that was in the Harbour sank."
  • 24 May 2012: With the introduction of the Iceberg, the ship was renamed to the S.S. Huntington III
  • The previous name, S.S. Huntington II, came with the following description:
This fine vessel has been granted permission by the King to sail the open ocean east of Gnawnia. Who knows what exotic hunting grounds are out there just waiting to be discovered..?
A particularly icy Festive Comet has crashed into the Rodentia Ocean, obliterating the S.S. Huntington III! Fortunately, the King's Royal Astronomers observed that the comet was off-course and would land in the ocean instead of its usual landing spot near the castle. This allowed the King's Royal Engineers to construct a replacement ship ahead of time with the ample supply of Splintered Wood in the King's Royal Sawmill. You can find the new and improved S.S. Huntington IV just north of its previous location.
