The '''Forbidden Grove''' is a location in the [[Bristle Woods]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Hunter's Title|Legendary]] and the [[Keeper's Candle]] to enter. Every so often, the gates to the Forbidden Grove will alternate from open to closed. Hunters in the Forbidden Grove when the gates are closed will be transported to the [[Acolyte Realm]], and must wait some time to reenter. Hunters are unable to enter Forbidden Grove unless the gates are open, but are able to travel to other locations at any time.

== Overview ==
 +
The [[Forbidden Grove]] is a location in the [[Bristle Woods]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Legendary]] and the [[Keeper's Candle]] to enter. In addition, the [[Forbidden Grove]] '''''must''''' be open for Hunters to access the location.<br/>
 +
The [[Keeper's Candle]] can be acquired by capturing a [[Keeper Mouse]] in the [[Catacombs]].<br/>
 +
Mice in the [[Forbidden Grove]] may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.
  
The Forbidden Grove gates used to be on a 3-hour cycle, but as rumours of a [[Ancient Box Trap|trap]] capable of catching an [[Acolyte Mouse|Acolyte]] spread, the entrance to the Forbidden Grove has become unstable. It is not currently known whether it will remain unstable permanently.
+
The [[Forbidden Grove]] acts as a gateway to the [[Acolyte Realm]]. Hunters may not entered the [[Acolyte Realm]] without first catching a [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] in the [[Forbidden Grove]].
  
Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.
+
===Open/Close Cycle===
 +
The [[Forbidden Grove]] is on a 20 hour cycle. It remains '''open for 16 hours''', then '''closes for 4 hours'''. Hunters may not travel to the [[Forbidden Grove]] while it is closed.<br/>
 +
When the [[Forbidden Grove]] is open, the [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] '''cannot''' be encountered unless the Hunter has a [[Realm Ripper Charm]] armed.  This prevents Hunters from entering the [[Acolyte Realm]].<br/>
 +
When the [[Forbidden Grove]] closes, the [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] '''can''' be encountered and is the only mouse available. Capturing the [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] transports the Hunter to the [[Acolyte Realm]] and is the only way Hunters are able to enter the [[Acolyte Realm]] location.
  
== Shops ==
+
===Heads-Up Display===
There are no shops available in the Forbidden Grove. Shops for the Bristle Woods region can be found in the [[Catacombs]].
+
The HUD in the [[Forbidden Grove]] tracks the time remaining in the open/close cycle before the location closes. It also tracks the number of [[Rune]]s and [[Runic Cheese]] in the Hunter's inventory.

The [[Forbidden Grove]] mice are a mix of mice from [[The Forgotten Mice]], [[The Shadow Clan]], and the [[Indigenous Mice]] groups.<br/>
|- bgcolor="#dddddd"
+
Mice found in this location are primarily weak to [[Arcane]] and [[Shadow]] weapons, with a secondary weakness to [[Forgotten]] weapons.  The Hunter's choice of cheese will determine which weapon to arm for best results.

The [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] is only available once the [[Forbidden Grove]] has '''closed''' unless the Hunter has a [[Realm Ripper Charm]] armed. It is also the only mouse that can be encountered once the [[Forbidden Grove]] closes.<br/>

Capturing a [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] transports the Hunter to the [[Acolyte Realm]] and is the only way Hunters can travel to that location.

===Cheese Preference and Loot===
 +
[[Radioactive Blue Cheese]], [[Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese]] and [[Magical Rancid Radioactive Blue Cheese]] attracts the relatively weaker mice found in the [[Forbidden Grove]]. These mice are weakest to [[Shadow]] weapons.<br>
 +
[[Ancient Cheese]] attracts almost all mice in the [[Forbidden Grove]].  [[Arcane]] weapons are strongly recommended when hunting with [[Ancient Cheese]].<br/>
 +
[[Moon Cheese]] significantly reduces the mouse population in the [[Forbidden Grove]].<br>

== Hunting Strategy ==
Hunters planning to hunt in the Forbidden Grove are advised not to do so until they craft the [[Arcane Capturing Rod Of Never Yielding Mystery]] as well as stock an ample supply of [[Ancient (cheese)|Ancient]] cheese for the hunt. These are necessary in order to attract and catch the more powerful [[Forgotten]] type mice in this location.

Hunters will need to capture a [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] in the [[Forbidden Grove]] if they wish to enter the [[Acolyte Realm]]. The [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] is only available once the [[Forbidden Grove]] has '''closed.''' unless a [[Realm Ripper Charm]] is armed. If a Hunter's [[trap check]] occurs at the same time as the closing of the [[Forbidden Grove]], the [[Realm Ripper Mouse]] can be attracted and caught on the [[trap check]] itself.

Mice found in this location are primarily weak to [[Arcane]] and [[Shadow]] weapons, with a secondary weakness to [[Forgotten]] weapons.  The Hunter's choice of cheese will determine which weapon to arm for best results.

The Forbidden Grove is on a 20 hour cycle. It remains open for 16 hours, then closes for 4 hours. Hunters may not travel to the Forbidden Grove while it is closed.

and
Location must be open

Radioactive Blue Cheese

At the end of the Catacombs, beyond heavy stone gates, lies a hidden hunting ground. Etched into the gates is a warning: "Beware young soul, should the stone gates close while within this grove, you will find yourself caught between realms.


Overview

The Forbidden Grove is a location in the Bristle Woods region requiring a minimum rank of Legendary and the Keeper's Candle to enter. In addition, the Forbidden Grove must be open for Hunters to access the location.
The Keeper's Candle can be acquired by capturing a Keeper Mouse in the Catacombs.
Mice in the Forbidden Grove may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.

The Forbidden Grove acts as a gateway to the Acolyte Realm. Hunters may not entered the Acolyte Realm without first catching a Realm Ripper Mouse in the Forbidden Grove.

Open/Close Cycle

The Forbidden Grove is on a 20 hour cycle. It remains open for 16 hours, then closes for 4 hours. Hunters may not travel to the Forbidden Grove while it is closed.
When the Forbidden Grove is open, the Realm Ripper Mouse cannot be encountered unless the Hunter has a Realm Ripper Charm armed. This prevents Hunters from entering the Acolyte Realm.
When the Forbidden Grove closes, the Realm Ripper Mouse can be encountered and is the only mouse available. Capturing the Realm Ripper Mouse transports the Hunter to the Acolyte Realm and is the only way Hunters are able to enter the Acolyte Realm location.

Heads-Up Display

The HUD in the Forbidden Grove tracks the time remaining in the open/close cycle before the location closes. It also tracks the number of Runes and Runic Cheese in the Hunter's inventory.

Forbidden Grove Mice

The Forbidden Grove mice are a mix of mice from The Forgotten Mice, The Shadow Clan, and the Indigenous Mice groups.
Mice found in this location are primarily weak to Arcane and Shadow weapons, with a secondary weakness to Forgotten weapons. The Hunter's choice of cheese will determine which weapon to arm for best results.

Realm Ripper Mouse

The Realm Ripper Mouse is only available once the Forbidden Grove has closed unless the Hunter has a Realm Ripper Charm armed. It is also the only mouse that can be encountered once the Forbidden Grove closes.
Capturing a Realm Ripper Mouse transports the Hunter to the Acolyte Realm and is the only way Hunters can travel to that location.

Cheese Preference and Loot

Hunting Strategy

The Forbidden Grove is on a 20 hour cycle. It remains open for 16 hours, then closes for 4 hours. Hunters may not travel to the Forbidden Grove while it is closed.

Hunters will need to capture a Realm Ripper Mouse in the Forbidden Grove if they wish to enter the Acolyte Realm. The Realm Ripper Mouse is only available once the Forbidden Grove has closed. unless a Realm Ripper Charm is armed. If a Hunter's trap check occurs at the same time as the closing of the Forbidden Grove, the Realm Ripper Mouse can be attracted and caught on the trap check itself.

Mice found in this location are primarily weak to Arcane and Shadow weapons, with a secondary weakness to Forgotten weapons. The Hunter's choice of cheese will determine which weapon to arm for best results.

Location-Specific Effects

Bases

  • The Runic Base is a limited edition base that increases the chance of Runes being dropped as loot, as well as adding a small chance of receiving an extra Rune.

Adventure Book

Hunters can complete steps to Capture the Acolyte Mouse by obtaining Runes to craft Runic Cheese and by catching a Realm Ripper in the Forbidden Grove.

Library Assignments

Tournaments

Forbidden Grove mice are worth points during some Tournaments.

Treasure Maps

Many mice in the Forbidden Grove are often found on Acolyte Treasure Maps and Relic Hunter Treasure Maps.

Hunting tips by Larry

Only the most capable MouseHunters make it to the Forbidden Grove! I'm impressed.

This area may look like a garden, but it is actually a giant trap designed to catch the powerful Acolyte mouse! Every few hours the massive stone gates close, sealing this area off from the Catacombs. When the gates close, a thick fog fills the grove and anyone still inside is transported into the Acolyte Realm upon capturing a Realm Ripper Mouse.

The mice here are weak to Arcane traps and are highly attracted to Ancient Cheese. To make Ancient Cheese, combine three Stale cheese with six Ionized Salt. You can also add three Magic Essence to the same recipe to double the amount of cheese produced.

The mice within this grove are trying to reverse the effects of the portal to keep a two-way gate open at all times. Should they accomplish this goal, armies of mice will soon invade Gnawnia at the command of the evil Acolyte!

Be on the look out for magical runes dropped by the mice here. Runes are used to craft Runic cheese, which is the only cheese capable of attracting an Acolyte.

Remember that when the gates close, Realm Ripper mice will be in the grove. If you capture a Realm Ripper, you will be transported to the Acolyte Realm. Keep this fact in mind before leaving your trap for long periods of time.

Shops

There are no shops available in the Forbidden Grove. Shops for the Bristle Woods region can be found in the Catacombs.

History and Trivia

  • The banner artwork when the grove is open actually contains the warning mentioned in the location overview: "Beware young soul, should the stone gates close while within this grove, you will find yourself caught between realms."
