 +
 
 +

 +
 
 +
===Cheese Preference and Loot===
 +
[[Standard Cheese]] attracts all mice in [[Derr Dunes]], except the [[Derr Chieftain]], [[Gladiator]], [[Guardian]], and [[Black Widow]] mice. <br>
 +
[[Gouda Cheese]] has the best attraction rate of the [[Standard Cheese]]s and it will not attract the [[Sylvan Mouse]].<br/>
 +
{{SB}} is required to attract the [[Black Widow Mouse]] and attracts all other mice in [[Derr Dunes]], except the [[Derr Chieftain]], [[Gladiator]], [[Guardian]], and [[Sylvan]] mice.<br>

* Highlighted mice are less than 1% of the population and are infrequently encountered in this location.
+
 
 +
===Mice with Special Requirements===
 +
*[[Relic Hunter Mouse]] – This mouse visits the [[Derr Dunes]] on an irregular basis. It does not consume cheese or charms. Hunters must have an [[Ancient Relic]] in their inventory to attract this mouse. The [[Ancient Relic]] will be taken by the [[Relic Hunter Mouse]] in exchange for a [[Relic Hunter Scroll Case]].
 +
*[[M400]] – This mouse will sometimes be available in [[Derr Dunes]] when Hunters are actively working an [[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]]. It is attracted only to [[Fusion Fondue]] which will not attract any other mice. It drops a wide variety of loot.

Hunters must hunt with [[Standard Cheese]] ([[Gouda]] has the best attraction rate) or {{SB}} in order to obtain [[Delicious Stone]]s which are required for crafting [[Crunchy Cheese]].<br/>
 +
[[Crunchy Cheese]] is required to attract the mice that drop [[Red Pepper Seed]]s that are necessary for crafting the cheeses required to attract mice in the [[Jungle of Dread]] and [[Dracano]].
 +
 +

[[Crunchy Cheese]] attracts the [[Derr Chieftain]], [[Gladiator]], and [[Guardian]] mice.<br/>
 +
 +
Hunters interested in building the [[Ancient Box Trap]] will need to arm [[Crunchy Cheese]] to attract the [[Derr Chieftain Mouse]], which drops the [[Ancient Mangled Blueprint Piece]].
  
=== Cheese Usage ===
+
===Location-Specific Effects===
If you are looking for [[Delicious Stone]]s, [[SUPER brie+|SUPER|brie+]] provides the best attraction rate, followed by [[Gouda]]; [[Brie]] can also be used with some success. [[Crunchy]] should be used if you are looking for [[Red Pepper Seed]]s and the [[Ancient Mangled Blueprint]]. To improve the chances of catching the strong mice here, it is recommended that hunters collect enough gold to craft the [[RhinoBot]]. However, the [[Digby DrillBot]] with the [[Magma Base]] or [[Tribal Base]] would do adequately well there as well although not for long-term gold farming.  
+
====Charms====
 +
* The [[Derr Power Charm]] provides +600 power and a 5% power bonus when hunting in [[Derr Dunes]].
 +
====Traps====
 +
* The [[Isle Idol Trap]] is a '''limited edition''' trap that gives double [[Delicious Stone]] drops in [[Derr Dunes]].
 +
====Bases====
 +
* The [[Tiki Base]] provides a +6 luck bonus when hunting in [[Derr Dunes]].
 +
*The [[Tribal Kaboom Base]] '''(limited edition)''' may increase the quantity of [[Delicious Stone]]s and [[Red Pepper Seed]]s dropped as loot by mice in [[Derr Dunes]].
  
Sylvan mice can occasionally be encountered in Derr Dunes when not using Gouda or SUPER|brie+.
+
===[[Adventure Book]]===
 +
Hunters can complete steps to [[Defeat the Tribe Chieftains]] by using [[Crunchy Cheese]] in the [[Derr Dunes]] to catch the [[Derr Chieftain Mouse]].
 +
 
 +
Hunters can complete steps to [[Defeat the Dreaded Horde]] '''and''' [[Slay the Dragon Mouse]] by locating the source of [[Red Pepper Seed]]s in the [[Derr Dunes]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Library Assignments]]===
 +
*[[M400 Hunting Research Assignment]] -  This assignment may require collecting 1 [[Piece of M400 Intel]] from mice in the [[Derr Dunes]] and/or capture the [[M400]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Tournaments]]===
 +
[[Derr Dunes]] mice are worth points during some [[Tournaments]].
 +
 
 +
===[[Treasure Map]]s===
 +
Mice in [[Derr Dunes]] are often found on [[Tribal Isles Treasure Map]]s, [[Tribal and Shelder Hunt Treasure Map]]s, and [[Relic Hunter Treasure Maps]].

Great Scott, what in King's name are we doing here?! Are you mad, MouseHunter? Members of the Derr tribe are ruthless, power-hungry war mongers! The reputation of the Derr Tribe is known across the Island. They topple even the most powerful of traps with ease, crippling hunters' courage and pillaging their gold! Hunting here is not for the faint of heart, but capturing a member of the Derr tribe does come with a handsome reward of gold!

Great Scott! What in the King's name are we doing here?
  
If you insist on hunting the dangerous Derr Tribe you will need a powerful Physical Trap. If you are familiar with the Burroughs Region, perhaps you have discovered the secret research facility called Digby. The Trapsmith in Digby sells the powerful Digby DrillBot, known throughout Gnawnia as a vital component in a strong Physical trap setup.

Hunting here is not for the faint of heart, but capturing a member of the Derr tribe does come with a handsome reward of gold.
  
The mice of Derr trust no one, a trait that has made them very suspicious and hard to trick into a trap. You'll find '''Gouda''' is quite capable of attracting a member of Derr towards a trap, but '''SUPER|brie+''' is even more effective! The magical sparkle of SUPER|brie+ prevent mice from stealing more than a single piece at a time, a property that comes in especially handy here in the Derr Dunes as the mice here tend to steal cheese in large quantities.

You're on your own now, MouseHunter. This heavy suit of armour proves to be quite cumbersome when trying to navigate the rocky terrain here. Best of luck!

The dunes are a harsh, barren wasteland where only the toughest of mice can survive. The Derr Tribe take advantage of their ability to survive and navigate in such a dangerous terrain as a defensive strength which allows them to maximize their offensive abilities. Use of a Physical trap is highly recommended when hunting for the Derr.

Hunting Strategy

Hunters must hunt with Standard Cheese (Gouda has the best attraction rate) or SUPER|brie+ in order to obtain Delicious Stones which are required for crafting Crunchy Cheese.
Crunchy Cheese is required to attract the mice that drop Red Pepper Seeds that are necessary for crafting the cheeses required to attract mice in the Jungle of Dread and Dracano.

Standard Cheese attracts all mice in Derr Dunes, except the Derr Chieftain, Gladiator, Guardian, and Black Widow mice.
Gouda Cheese has the best attraction rate of the Standard Cheeses and it will not attract the Sylvan Mouse.
SUPER|brie+ is required to attract the Black Widow Mouse and attracts all other mice in Derr Dunes, except Derr Chieftain, Gladiator, Guardian, and Sylvan mice.

Hunting tips by Larry

Great Scott! What in the King's name are we doing here?

Members of the Derr tribe are ruthless, power-hungry war mongers. They topple even the most powerful of traps with ease, crippling hunters' courage and pillaging their gold. Hunting here is not for the faint of heart, but capturing a member of the Derr tribe does come with a handsome reward of gold.

You will need a powerful Physical Trap to hunt for Derr mice. If you are familiar with the Burroughs Region, perhaps you have discovered the secret research facility called Digby. The Trapsmith in Digby sells the powerful Digby DrillBot, which is a vital component in a strong Physical trap setup.

The mice of Derr trust no one, a trait that has made them very hard to trick into a trap. You'll find Gouda will attract a member of Derr towards a trap, but SUPER|brie+ is even more effective! The magical sparkle of SUPER|brie+ prevents mice from stealing more than a single piece at a time, a property that comes in handy here in the Derr Dunes, as the mice here tend to steal large amounts of cheese.

I’m heading back to town. . .this heavy suit of armor is quite cumbersome when navigating rocky terrain. Best of luck!

Shops

There are no shops available in Derr Dunes. Shops for the Tribal Isles region can be found in the Cape Clawed.
