Overview

S.S. Huntington IV is a hunting location in Rodentia region.
It requires the rank of Legendary and the S.S. Huntington IV map piece to access.

Hunters will need to catch 3 specific mice to loot Compass, Sextant, and Telescope to craft the Ocean Navigation Kit.
The Ocean Navigation Kit is the map piece to unlock Tribal Isles.

Mice

All mice aboard the S.S. Huntington IV are part of the Aquatic Order, except the Crown Collector and Nibbler mice, which are part of the Indigenous Mice group.
Hydro power type is very effective again the mice here, while Physical and Tactical are also effective.

Galleon Gouda can be used to reduce the mouse population and boost the attraction rate of Shelder Mouse.

Hunting Strategy

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.
