|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.
The Ancient Box Trap is not sold by any Trapsmith and is therefore non-refundable. It can only be crafted using the proper components.

As a Forgotten type weapon, the Ancient Box Trap is only of normal effectiveness against one of the Arcane mice — namely the 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. 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.
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.
