== Effectiveness ==
 
As a [[Forgotten]] type weapon, the Ancient Box Trap is only of normal [[effectiveness]] against one of the [[Arcane]] mice — namely the [[Acolyte Mouse|Acolyte]] — which it is designed to capture. The Ancient Box Trap has also been found to be very effective against the mice of [[Balack's Cove]], including Arcane mouse [[Balack the Banished Mouse|Balack the Banished]]. It is of normal effectiveness against Forgotten and [[Shadow]] mice in [[Bristle Woods]], but it is less effective against all other types of mice including the other Arcane mouse — the [[Dragon Mouse|Dragon]].
 
 
== History and Trivia ==
 
Before 2 September 2009, a minimum of 19,000,000 points was required to craft this weapon. The point requirement was lowered in the interest of making the Ancient Box Trap accessible to most hunters with the title of Knight.

The ancient ghost mice which roamed Gnawnia before even the castle existed require an old-fashioned trap strategy, and the Ancient Box Trap is about as old-fashioned as they come. A heavy stone box teeters precariously upon an Ancient Relic Staff, waiting for a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. This may seem like a deceptively simple trap set-up, but ancient mice enjoy the classics.
