A trap design that has long withstood the test of time. The parts of this trap emit a powerful glow capable of mesmerizing power-hungry, greedy mice. The heavy stone box teeters precariously upon the Ancient Relic Staff awaiting a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. It is only this simple, long-forgotten trap that is capable of defeating the powerful Acolyte mouse.





The Ancient Box Trap is currently the only Forgotten type weapon and is used in the Acolyte Realm to catch the Acolyte Mouse. Additionally, the Ancient Box Trap has proven to be very effective against the mice of Balack's Cove.
