Talk:Student of the Cheese Fang Mouse

From MHWiki

Is this mouse indeed found in the pinnacle and meditation room?--Michael 10:01, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Preferred Cheese

I wanted to question the listing of SuperBrie as a special preference of the Student of the Cheese Fang Mouse. While it is true that you will attract 30% more Student of the Cheese Fang mice if you use SuperBrie instead of boring Swiss (according to the Catch Rate Estimator) this is true for all of the mice located in the Dojo. For example the Black Widow Mouse in the Harbour is more likely to be caught with SuperBrie than Swiss cheese - you sre 22% more likely to attract normal mice in the harbor with SuperBrie but 33% more likely to attract the Black Widow. The same is true with the Foxy mouse in the Calm Clearing (but not in the Gnarled Tree). I guess unless we are seeing that a particular mouse has a higher than average attraction to a cheese I don't think it should have the cheese listed under bait preference. -- Ralphminer 03:49, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

I've looked at what we've received to the survey so far, while there is an obvious preference for Maki, the difference between Brie and SB+ is quite minimal (about 0.5%), so I would say there's no preference for SB+. Figures are available if you want them. -- Twentypence 07:11, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I have benn using maki in the area for a while now and im having alot of trouble cating any Student of the Cheese Fang Mouse but have ample of the others... maybe that onle has preference to SB+ rather than Maki--SEIGE 03:18, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Just like to point out that the cheese preference for SB+ was mentioned directly by the developers, and were not added based on player data. You can find info in the archived Mice discussions here, right at the top. They might have changed the preference since then, but the only one who can say for sure are the developers themselves, so you guys might want to consider asking them :) -- Grexx 18:51, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Greg - I wasn't aware of this information - we can use these mice as the basis for comprision for other mice that might have a cheese preference. I added a question to Dave's talk page to see why the Furoma students don't stand out - it could be all mice in Dojo get the SuperBrie extra bonus. -- Ralphminer 21:24, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
