These mice have earned the nickname 'Sparky' after a certain infamous MouseHunter who had very long fingers. With an insatiable lust for brie, these stealthy mice make their way from region to region stealing brie from shoppe keepers! Since they are known for their desire to hoard cheese, a hunter is sure to find a few pieces of left over brie in the satchel of this sparky little mouse.
Mouse ID#: 26

The Burglar Mouse is a breed of mouse found in the Gnawnia, Burroughs and Valour regions. They are known to drop Flawless Orb and Brie and Gilded cheese in all locations, and Plankrun's Journal Back Cover in the Bazaar.

Preferred Cheese

Burglar mice have been found to be especially attracted to Brie, Gilded and SUPER|brie+ cheese.

Hunting Strategy

Hunters looking for the Back Cover of Plankrun's Journal are advised to use their strongest trap regardless of type and bait it with Brie cheese. This setup should be adequate for attracting and catching Burglar mice in the Bazaar, in addition to the other breeds that can also be found there.

Law traps are listed as being very effective against Burglar mice. However, note that strong traps of other power types, but with only regular effectiveness, can easily outperform the weak power of Law traps.
