''This many-storied tower is the King’s personal challenge to MouseHunters everywhere: anyone who can reach the top is among the kingdom’s elite. The King’s Gauntlet works on a tier system, with Hunters advancing to the next floor by hunting with cheese that they collect on the current floor. The Gauntlet is meant as a challenge for hunters of all skill levels, but in order to ascend to the very top, a Hero’s rank will come in handy.''

==Overview==
These are the shops that can be found in the King's Gauntlet:
+
The [[King's Gauntlet]] is a location in the [[Valour]] region requiring a minimum rank of [[Hero]] and the [[King's Gauntlet Floorplan]] to enter.<br/>
*[[Cheese Shoppe#King's Gauntlet Cheese Shoppe|Cheese Shoppe]]
+
The [[King's Gauntlet Floorplan]] can be purchased from the [[Bazaar Cartographer]] in exchange for 1 [[Crown Jewel]] and 50,000 gold.<br/>
*[[Trapsmith#King's Gauntlet Trapsmith|Trapsmith]]
+
Mice in the [[King's Gauntlet]] can steal points or gold if not captured.<br/>
 +
The [[King's Gauntlet]] consists of '''eight tiers'''. At each '''tier''', Hunters collect potions that imbue cheese capable of attracting mice on the next '''tier'''. Hunters must equip the cheese appropriate to the '''tier''' they wish to hunt on.
 +
 
 +
==Mice==
 +
All mice in the [[King's Gauntlet]] are part of the [[Gauntlet Gladiators]] group.<br/>
 +
The [[Power Type]]s listed below for each '''tier''' of mice are considered the most effective for capturing the mice found on that tier.<br/>
 +
The '''cheese preference''' for each [[King's Gauntlet]] mouse is dependent on the '''tier''' it inhabits.<br/>
 +
Mice on each '''tier''' drop [[Potions#King.27s_Gauntlet|potions]] used to create the cheese necessary for attracting the mice on the next '''tier'''.
 +
 
 +
===Tier 1 - Puppet Mice===
 +
Mice found on '''Tier 1''' are primarily weak to [[Physical]] and [[Tactical]] weapons.<br/>
 +
[[Standard Cheese]] and {{SB}} will attract all '''Tier 1''' mice.<br/>
 +
All '''Tier 1''' mice are known to drop [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 2]] as loot.

===Mice with Special Requirements===
 +
*[[Relic Hunter Mouse]] – This mouse visits the [[King's Gauntlet]] 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 the [[King's Gauntlet]] 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.
  
 
== Hunting Strategy ==
 
== Hunting Strategy ==
In the King's Gauntlet, unlike in the [[Furoma Pagoda|Pagoda]] a hunter does not need to travel to change the mice they are attempting to catch. All a hunter must do is equip the appropriate cheese for the tier they wish to go after. The mice on each tier have a differing difficulty and different weaknesses, and the best hunting strategy may not always be clear. Progress to more difficult levels of the King's Gauntlet requires the use of special cheese, acquired through the use of potions dropped as loot in this location.
+
In the [[King's Gauntlet]], the main objective is to reach '''Tier 8''' and catch the [[Eclipse Mouse]].
 +
 
 +
Mice on each '''tier''' drop potions to create the cheese needed to hunt mice on the next '''tier'''.
 +
 
 +
*'''Tier 1'''
 +
:Hunters should arm a [[Physical]] or [[Tactical]] weapon with [[Standard Cheese]] or {{SB}}.  Mice on this '''tier''' drop [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 2]] used to create cheese for use on '''Tier 2'''.
 +
*'''Tier 2'''
 +
:Hunters should arm a [[Physical]] weapon with [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 2]].  Mice on this '''tier''' drop [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 3]] used to create cheese for use on '''Tier 3'''.
 +
*'''Tier 3'''
 +
:Hunters should arm a [[Tactical]] weapon with [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 3]].  Mice on this '''tier''' drop [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 4]] used to create cheese for use on '''Tier 4'''.

===Hunting tips by [[Larry]]===
 +
Why hello, MouseHunter! It looks like we’ll be ascending the King’s Gauntlet together!
  
===Weaknesses & Cheese Usage===
+
Hunters have flocked in from all over the land to face the terrors, the wonders, and the challenges of the King’s Gauntlet. If you can make it to the top of this tall, tall tower, you will gain lots of loot, and you will be able to count yourself among the land’s elite.
The Mice in the King's Gauntlet are organized into eight different levels or 'tiers'. All the mice in the area are in the [[Gauntlet Gladiators]] group, and each tier has a unique weakness and a unique cheese that must be used for a successful hunt. The stated weakness to a specific trap power type may not be the only power type that any tier of mice is vulnerable to.  
 
  
Tier 1: All standard cheese types can be used in this location to catch Tier 1 mice. It is recommended that Hunters start out with either Marble or Swiss, and stay away from Brie as using this cheese will very likely result in a net gold loss. While their exact weaknesses are not known, Tier 1 mice can be caught with any moderately powerful [[physical]] trap.
+
Every Hunter starts on floor one, using any bait they wish. From then on, Hunters progress to the next floor by using '''potions''' collected on the previous floor to make special cheeses. There is no need to travel-- just '''equip the right cheese to attract mice from the next floor!'''
  
Tier 2: [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 2]] must be used to catch Tier 2 mice, as no other cheese will attract them. Tier 2 mice are weak to [[physical]] traps, as well as stronger [[tactical]] traps.
+
On each floor, the mice are weak to a different '''power type.''' If you get confused, the cheese descriptions may lend a hand. The further you go up the Gauntlet, the more difficult, and profitable, the mice become. Can you make it all the way to the top, and defeat the mysterious Eclipse Mouse?
  
Tier 3: [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 3]] must be used to catch Tier 3 mice, as no other cheese will attract them. Tier 3 mice are weak to [[tactical]] traps.
+
Good luck, MouseHunter, and don’t get tired on the stairs!
  
Tier 4: [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 4]] must be used to catch Tier 4 mice, as no other cheese will attract them. Tier 4 mice are weak to [[tactical]] traps.
+
==Weapons with Gauntlet-Specific Effects==
 +
* The [[Ancient Gauntlet]] is a '''limited edition''' weapon that gives double [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 2]] drops from [[Tier 1]] mice in the [[King's Gauntlet]].
 +
* The [[Festive Gauntlet Crusher]] is a '''limited edition''' weapon that gives double [[Gauntlet Potion Tier 3]] drops from [[Tier 2]] mice in the [[King's Gauntlet]].
  
Tier 5: [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 5]] must be used to catch Tier 5 mice, as no other cheese will attract them. Tier 5 mice are weak to [[shadow]] traps.
+
== Shops ==
 +
These are the shops that can be found in the King's Gauntlet:
  
Tier 6: [[Gauntlet Cheese Tier 6]] must be used to catch Tier 6 mice, as no other cheese will attract them. Tier 6 mice are weak to [[arcane]] traps.

This many-storied tower is the King’s personal challenge to MouseHunters everywhere: anyone who can reach the top is among the kingdom’s elite. The King’s Gauntlet works on a tier system, with Hunters advancing to the next floor by hunting with cheese that they collect on the current floor. The Gauntlet is meant as a challenge for hunters of all skill levels, but in order to ascend to the very top, a Hero’s rank will come in handy.


Overview

The King's Gauntlet is a location in the Valour region requiring a minimum rank of Hero and the King's Gauntlet Floorplan to enter.
The King's Gauntlet Floorplan can be purchased from the Bazaar Cartographer in exchange for 1 Crown Jewel and 50,000 gold.
Mice in the King's Gauntlet can steal points or gold if not captured.
The King's Gauntlet consists of eight tiers. At each tier, Hunters collect potions that imbue cheese capable of attracting mice on the next tier. Hunters must equip the cheese appropriate to the tier they wish to hunt on.

Mice

All mice in the King's Gauntlet are part of the Gauntlet Gladiators group.
The Power Types listed below for each tier of mice are considered the most effective for capturing the mice found on that tier.
The cheese preference for each King's Gauntlet mouse is dependent on the tier it inhabits.
Mice on each tier drop potions used to create the cheese necessary for attracting the mice on the next tier.

Tier 1 - Puppet Mice

Hunting tips by Larry

Why hello, MouseHunter! It looks like we’ll be ascending the King’s Gauntlet together!

Hunters have flocked in from all over the land to face the terrors, the wonders, and the challenges of the King’s Gauntlet. If you can make it to the top of this tall, tall tower, you will gain lots of loot, and you will be able to count yourself among the land’s elite.

Every Hunter starts on floor one, using any bait they wish. From then on, Hunters progress to the next floor by using potions collected on the previous floor to make special cheeses. There is no need to travel-- just equip the right cheese to attract mice from the next floor!

On each floor, the mice are weak to a different power type. If you get confused, the cheese descriptions may lend a hand. The further you go up the Gauntlet, the more difficult, and profitable, the mice become. Can you make it all the way to the top, and defeat the mysterious Eclipse Mouse?

Good luck, MouseHunter, and don’t get tired on the stairs!
