Named by the tribes, this dangerous jungle is home to some of the most terrifying mice ever discovered. Long ago the leaders of the tribes discovered a spicy cheese made with peppers capable of distracting the mighty beasts of the jungle. This peppered bait may be the key to luring these mice to a trap...

Description and Requirements

The Jungle of Dread is a location in the Tribal Isles region requiring a minimum rank of Hero and the Ocean Navigation Kit. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.

Hunting Strategy

The 6 different flavours of Havarti cheese are required to attract the 6 Shadow mice in this location, each of which drops specific loot that is necessary to craft the only Forgotten type weapon in the game: the Ancient Box Trap. Superbrie or Gouda cheese attracts the Pigmy Swarm Mouse, which drops vanilla beans.

The hunter will need to use the strongest Shadow type weapon since the mice in the Jungle of Dread resist Arcane damage.

Hunting tips by Larry

My knowledge of this area is woefully inadequate, due to my total knee-knocking fear of entering here. Maybe when you learn some things about this area, you can give me some tips. How does that sound?
