Spring Egg Hunt

31 March 2015

The Spring Egg Hunt has begun! After a quick Eggscavator re-calibration, scour the Kingdom for a plethora of hidden eggs!

Calibrating an Eggscavator

Eggs have been hidden across the entire Kingdom, however, in order to locate them you'll need a properly calibrated Eggscavator! Calibration can be done by visiting the Chocolate Factory and finding 10 special eggs, including the Golden Egg.

The Golden Egg is being carefully guarded by a new mouse menace — the Chocolate Gold Foil Mouse. This gold-glittered mouse will only show its face once the other nine special eggs at the factory have been collected. You can track down these eggs by collecting Marshmallow Monterey as loot at the Chocolate Factory then using it to lure Egg Painter mice out of hiding. After capturing nine Egg Painter mice, the Chocolate Gold Foil Mouse can be attracted and with its capture the Golden Egg found!

Looking for a more challenging hunt while at the factory? More spooky breeds have taken shelter there, including fearsome lich mice! Purchase Dark Chocolate Charms from the Charm Shoppe at the Chocolate Factory and arm them to attract these fearsome breeds. The powerful scent of SUPER|brie+ when armed alongside a Dark Chocolate Charm will also bring around the most powerful liches of all -- the lich mice of the Tribal Isles! With great risk comes great reward: Though tough to catch, these undead guardians hold more Marshmallow Monterey than any other mouse at the factory.

Hunting for Bonus Eggs

With your Eggscavator properly calibrated, you can now find dozens of eggs hidden nearly everywhere in the Kingdom! Track which eggs you've found and which you have yet to collect by pressing the "ping" button on your Eggscavator in your inventory or in the HUD. You'll also find a few hints and tips for where to find each egg and what mouse or mice may be carrying it!

The Charm Shoppe at the Chocolate Factory carries a variety of charms!

Eggscavator Charge Charm
Capturing a mouse with this charm armed will add a charge to your Eggscavator. You'll lose a charge each hunt taken without a charge charm armed. Depending on the charge level of your Eggscavator, you'll find Low, Medium, and High Charge Eggs. These eggs contain Spring Hunt loot!

Eggstra Charm
The Eggstra Charm will double the quantity of any eggs found while hunting! The charm is only consumed when you find an egg.

Eggstra Charge Charm
Combines the abilities of the Eggscavator Charge Charm and the Eggstra Charm both charging your Eggscavator and doubling the quantity of any eggs found. This charm is consumed upon each successful capture of a mouse.

Birthday Celebration has ended

19 March 2015

MouseHunt's Seventh Birthday celebration has come to a close.

Cupcake Extravaganza has ended

The Birthday Cupcake Extravaganza has come to an end. The Kingdom's sweet tooth was hopefully satiated by the millions upon millions of cupcakes shipped!
The various cupcake-carrying mice have now left the party, however, hunters can still ship any last cupcakes they have. With the demand for cupcakes dwindling, the King's Bakers will also allow hunters to cancel any active orders, however, orders may only be cancelled if they are not full. To cancel an unfulfilled order, hover your mouse over the order and click the "X" icon that appears in the top-right corner of the order. This "X" will not appear if you have enough cupcakes to ship the order.

Last Call for Cruise Bux

It was two weeks ago that Calamity Carl made good on his name by crashing his cruise ship ashore into the Birthday Party Celebration. The ship has remained there since, including its shops. However, now that Digby engineers have managed to drag the ship back to sea, Carls' Cruise Bux Shoppes have been temporarily opened at the Vacant Lot for one last chance for hunters to cash out their Cruise Bux. If you have any bux left you're planning on spending, make sure and head to the shoppes now!

Thanks for seven great years, hunters!
Here's to many years of adventures to come!
Happy hunting!

St. Patrick's Day Bonus Luck!

15 March 2015

St. Patrick's Day has arrived and we're looking to bring your trap some extra luck!

Lucky Mouse and +5 Luck Bonus

The Lucky Mouse has joined the Birthday Party celebrations and with his arrival every hunter's trap has been given a +5 Luck Bonus! Luck's not the only thing this mouse is interested in, though! The Lucky Mouse has taken a particular interest in tasty Green and Rainbow Cupcakes. The Lucky Mouse will drop BOTH a Green and Rainbow Cupcake when captured!

The bright and shiny luck has also brought with it a new powerful charm! The Rainbow Luck Charm has an impressive +12 Luck as well as 800 Power! Anytime a mouse drops a Rainbow Cupcake at the Birthday Party, they'll also drop one of these new charms!

Finally, what's a St. Patrick's Day celebration without a healthy amount of green? From now until the end of the Birthday Event on March 19, all drops of Green Cupcakes have been DOUBLED! Find yourself with a few too many Green Cupcakes? The General Store owner is now offering a new cupcake exchange -- You can now exchange 12 Green Cupcakes at the General Store for two red, two yellow, and two blue!

MouseHunt is turning seven!

5 March 2015

MouseHunt is turning seven years old! WOW! The King is celebrating with cupcakes for everyone

Cupcake Extravaganza

The King has organized a birthday cupcake extravaganza! However, several mice with a sweet tooth are proving to be a usual nuisance by stealing cupcakes. The King needs the help of hunters to recover the stolen cupcakes and ship out orders. Just make sure to dust a bit of the rodent fur off before shipping them for consumption...
Upon arriving at the birthday celebration, you can pick up to three orders to work on at once from the heads-up display. There are seven different varieties of orders available, each celebrating a different year of MouseHunting. While you have a particular order active, you'll notice a few mice visiting your trap that originally appeared in the Kingdom during the order's respective year. These mice almost always carry a cupcake and a few even have other bonus loot with them!

Collecting Cupcake Colby

In order to lure cupcake carrying mice, you'll need similarly-themed bait: Cupcake Colby. This sweet cheese is produced by Cupcake Colby Potions that can be collected as loot at the birthday party zone. Once you've stock piled some Cupcake Colby, arm it to lure cupcake-dropping mice out of hiding!

Types of Cupcakes

There are five types of cupcakes that can be found as loot while hunting with Cupcake Colby. Cupcakes may also occasionally show up as the Gift of the Day to send to friends for free!

Red, Yellow, and Blue Cupcakes are the most commonly found type of cupcakes. They're used in every variety of order. If you find yourself with a few too many of a specific colour, visit the General Store where you can exchange 12 of a single colour for 6 differently-coloured cupcakes.

Green and Rainbow are harder to find than the other three cupcakes. More difficult orders will require more Green, and orders from year six and seven always require one or two Rainbow cupcakes. You'll also find these cupcakes in Daily Loyalty Chests!

Types of Cupcake Orders

There are seven different types of orders you can fulfill, one for each year of MouseHunting! Later year orders require more cupcakes, but they come with greater rewards!

While you're actively working on an order, a few mice that were released during that year can be encountered. Although these mice may vary in power type weaknesses, their insatiable love of sugar has them on an out-of-control sugar rush. Mice you encounter at the birthday party zone will have weaknesses to ALL power types, although, their typical weaknesses are still likely to be their greatest. These mice drop cupcakes the most often so be sure to always have an order on the go!

Choosing orders lets you pick your own level of hunting difficulty and rewards!

Year One

Requires 4 cupcakes to complete. Celebrates Digby, Furoma, Gnawnia, and the Mousoleum!

Year Two

Requires 6 cupcakes to complete. Celebrates Tournaments, the S.S. Huntington, Tribal Isles, Whisker Woods, Catacombs, and the Acolyte Realm!
