Hiding Cobweb Mice

25 October 2011

Cobweb Mice looking for a new hiding spot

It appears as though hunters are not the only ones interested in Trick-or-Treating this year! Cobweb Mice have also been spotted going door to door, but instead of looking for a delicious treat, they've been seeking a safe haven from hunters' traps.

In their efforts to find a more secure place to make a home, these Cobweb Mice have spun webs on the profiles of hunters who have not picked up their hunter's horn in a long time. Nestled safely inside the long-since-used inventories of inactive hunters, these Cobweb Mice think they've outsmarted us by finding a sneaky hiding spot!

You can help flush out these hiding Cobweb Mice by checking the hunter profiles of inactive hunters for Cobwebs. If you find a friend with Cobwebs on their profile, you'll be able to collect them and do your part in helping track down these stray Cobweb Mice. Depending on the size of your hunter's group, you may find up to five Cobwebs on the profiles of inactive hunters.

Visit both the Trapsmith and the Charm Shoppe at the Haunted Terrortories where you can trade Cobwebs for Trap Skins as well as powerful Charms that boost the stats of your trap!

Looking for more Cobwebs?

Cobwebs can also be found as loot by capturing a Cobweb Mouse in the Haunted Terrortories. On rare occasions, a hunter may also find Cobwebs inside Pumpkin Treat Baskets that can be sent as gifts to friends.

Halloween at the Haunted Terrortories

19 October 2011

Mousevina von Vermin controls the Haunted Terrortories!

The Haunted Terrortories have returned to Gnawnia and are under the control of a spooky vampire named Mousevina von Vermin!

Mousevina has discovered a rare Soulstone capable of bewitching the minds of mice which she is currently using to defend her stronghold within the Haunted Terrortories. Various spooky mice from around the kingdom have fallen under her spell, and some have even dressed up for the occasion! Reaching her will no doubt be a spooky adventure, but your heroics will be rewarded! The Trapsmith at the Terrortories is especially interested in Mousevina's Soulstone. If you're able to capture her and acquire a Soulstone, be sure to visit the Trapsmith and see what secrets he can unlock!

How to hunt at the Haunted Terrortories

Navigating the Haunted Terrortories will require a hunter to both trick and treat the mice there by hunting with Ghoulgonzola (trick) and Candy Corn (treat) Cheese.

Gathering trick and treat cheese in Gnawnia is a familiar tradition. Each day, hunters may visit up to 10 friends and receive some bait. Before you visit others, be sure to visit your own profile and choose what type of cheese you're handing out! If you find yourself getting low on cheese, you can also hunt at the Terrortories using Swiss, Brie, Gouda or SUPER|brie+ to attract Hollowhead Mice that drop Halloween Cheese. Additionally, you may find it inside Pumpkin Treat Baskets which you can send as gifts to friends!

The Haunted Terrortories consists of three areas: The Corn Maze, Haunted Manor and the Pumpkin Patch. You must both trick AND treat enough mice in your current area to begin attracting mice from the next. Your trick and treat progress will be displayed while hunting in the Haunted Terrortories.

Are you an experienced hunter looking to hunt more challenging and rewarding mice? Visit the Charm Shoppe at the Haunted Terrortories and purchase Spooky Charms which, when armed, will attract more fearsome mice worth greater rewards!

Spooky Rewards

The Trapsmith at the Haunted Terrortories is especially interested in Mousevina's Soulstone. If you capture Mousevina and find her Soulstone, you'll then be able to purchase the Soul Catcher Trap. Highly experienced hunters may also find ways to increase the Soul Catcher's power and create a far spookier piece of hunting equipment that has a special luck bonus!

While visiting friends and hunting your way toward Mousevina, you may also find a few morsels of Halloween Candy, and if you're especially lucky you may even come across rare Cobwebs. These Halloween Candies and Cobwebs can be exchanged at the various Haunted Terrortories shops to purchase a wide variety of exciting loot, including never-before-seen charms and trap skins!
