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.

Description and Requirements

Derr Dunes is a location in the Tribal Isles region requiring a minimum rank of Legendary and crafted Ocean Navigation Kit to enter. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.


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

Hunting Strategy

Cheese Usage

If you are looking for Delicious Stones, 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 Seeds 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 Molten Shrapnel Base or Tribal Base would do adequately well there as well.

Sylvan mice can occasionally be encountered in Derr Dunes when not using Gouda or SUPER|brie+.

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!

History and Trivia

The names of three locations in the Tribal Isles are roughly the tribes' colours backwards. Derr Dunes takes its name after the colour 'red', and the Derr tribe mice wear red clothes.
