At the edge of Whisker Woods lies a tree older than Gnawnia itself. Its magic roots stretch far underground and deep into the woods, giving life to the other trees. The shadow it casts is so massive that it began to affect the surrounding area through time, blocking necessary light from other trees. As as result, the other trees seem almost alive as they bend back and forth, seeking out the light.

Description and Requirements

The Great Gnarled Tree (commonly known as the GGT) is a location in the Whisker Woods region requiring a minimum rank of Master and the Gnarled Tree Map Piece to enter. Mice in this location may steal multiple pieces of cheese (but not points or gold) if not captured.


These are the shops that can be found in the Great Gnarled Tree:

Hunting Strategy

Hunters have several Trap Setup Options for the Great Gnarled Tree. Hunters in the Great Gnarled Tree are advised to use a trap comparable to or greater than the Swiss Army Mouse Trap to hunt successfully. Using a lesser trap could result in a net loss due to the thieving mice. Hunters trying to catch the rare tactical mice in this area should use a tactical trap such as the Venus Mouse Trap for more effectiveness against the mice, although powerful physical weapons will also work without a penalty.

All standard cheese types can be used in this location. Hunters who wish to maximize their profits should use either Swiss or Brie. Mice in this area have a lower attraction to Marble cheese here compared to the Calm Clearing.

Curious Chemist mice are only attracted to Gnarled cheese. While Gnarled also attracts most of the same mice as the standard cheeses, there are some exceptions shown in the table to the left. Black Widow, Nibbler, Nomad, and Tiger mice have a strong preference for SUPER|brie+ cheese.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Great Gnarled Tree. Watch your step, it's a long way down!

A Trapsmith has set up shop upon the highest branch of the tree and has a unique Tactical trap for sale. You'll find this trap more effective against some of the mice that dwell in and around the Great Gnarled Tree.

The magic of the Great Gnarled Tree has led to the discovery of potions. These potions are used to create Gnarled cheese which is sure to come in handy as you move deeper into the woods.

Keep your eyes open for a magical Fairy mouse that may hold clues regarding what lies in the woods beyond the Great Gnarled Tree.
