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.


The Laboratory is a location in the Burroughs region requiring a minimum rank of Master and the Laboratory Map Piece to enter.
Mice in the Laboratory can steal gold, points, and cheese if not caught.
Mice in the Laboratory are weak to all power types apart from Draconic, Parental and Rift

Mice with Special Requirements

Hunting Strategy

Mice in the Laboratory are weak to all power types apart from Draconic, Parental and Rift.

The Monster Mouse is only attracted to Radioactive Blue Cheese.
The Mutated Mole Mouse is only attracted to Limelight Cheese.

The Laboratory is the primary place for finding the Radioactive Blue Cheese Potions which are used to create Radioactive Blue Cheese. Radioactive Blue Cheese is required to attract certain mice in the Mousoleum and the Bristle Woods region.

Hunters that find the Key to the Town of Digby in the Laboratory will be able to travel to the Town of Digby.

Treasure Maps

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the remains of the Laboratory, brave MouseHunter!

Years ago, the King built this research facility to observe 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 few of the mice here have stolen long-forgotten 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...
