The original purpose of the Laboratory was to research the minor mouse problem Gnawnia was having. A few less than ethical experiments soon gave rise to new breeds of mice altogether. Now overrun with the very mice it spawned, few hunters dare to step foot on its grounds.

Description and Requirements

The Laboratory is a location in the Burroughs region requiring a minimum rank of Master and the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece to enter. It is also the primary location in which Radioactive Blue Cheese Potions are gathered for use in the Mousoleum and Catacombs. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.


There are no shops available in the Laboratory. Shops for the Burroughs region can be found in the Town of Digby and Bazaar.

  • Highlighted mice are less than 1% of the population and are infrequently encountered in this location.

Hunting Strategy

Hunters have several Trap Setup Options for the Laboratory. Hunters looking for Monster mice are advised to use the Digby DrillBot and bait it with Radioactive Blue cheese. Without using Radioactive Blue cheese, hunters will never encounter Monsters here. This location is also popular because of the Radioactive Blue Cheese Potions that most mice drop here. They are, without a doubt, indispensable commodities especially for those who wish to hunt in either the Mousoleum or in the Bristle Woods region. Because most of the mice in the Laboratory are easily attracted even by the cheapest kinds of cheese, even hunters using Cheddar cheese should have moderate hunting success while also allowing them to collect Radioactive Blue Cheese Potions and, to a lesser extent, Stale Cheese.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the remains of the Laboratory, brave MouseHunter!

Years ago the King built this laboratory to research the unusual changes in Gnawnian mice. Unfortunately, a few of their experiments went wrong, flooding the area with even more monstrous rodents. The laboratory contains many mysteries, including that of the scientists who disappeared from here long ago. . .

A Dwarf mouse has been reported to be carrying the key to a secret mobile research facility. Hunt this Dwarf and acquire the key to a new hunting ground, as well as some new experimental traps!

A few of the mice here have also stolen vials of radioactive waste. This glowing goo is left over from experiments in creating more powerful forms of bait. It might be worth the effort to save some of these vials to see if they work the way the scientists intended. . .

History and Trivia

During the weekend event of 08-10 October 2010, the more common breeds of mice in the Laboratory were dropping Radioactive Sludge as a loot item.
