This foreboding sea cave has fierce, unpredictable tides that can easily wash unsuspecting Hunters out to sea. Those who seek the spirits of this darkened grotto should arm a Shadow, Arcane or Forgotten trap, and use Vanilla Stilton as bait.

Description and Requirements

Balack's Cove is a location in the Tribal Isles region requiring a minimum rank of Knight and Balack's Lantern to enter.

Every so often, the tides in the Cove will wash all hunters out to the Jungle of Dread. It can be reentered 10 minutes later.

Mice in this location may steal points or gold if not captured.

Shops

There are no shops available in Balack's Cove. Shops for the Tribal Isles region can be found in Cape Clawed.

Hunting tips by Larry

I'm jolly glad to be out of Dracano, fearless MouseHunter, but this place isn't much better... I can hear whispering all around, and I don't think it's the sound of the waves.

This is the cursed resting place of Balack the Banished, and his legion of lich slaves. Shadow and Arcane traps work here, but Forgotten traps garner the best results, especially in conflict with Balack. The evil lord's followers respond only to the smell of rare vanilla bean, so keep plenty of Vanilla Stilton on hand. If you're after Balack and his Elder Liches, however, you'll need something with a little more bite-- Vengeful Vanilla Stilton, a nasty cheese made from the rage of Balack's eternal slaves.

If a legion of undead mice isn't enough to spook you, there's also the tides. The mysterious Riptide Mouse pulls the tides in and out several times a day, so unlucky Hunters caught in the waves will get washed out onto the shores of the Jungle of Dread!

This will be a difficult fight, even for an experienced MouseHunter, but I believe in you! Get in there and lift that curse!
