This base is made from magical glacial ice that seems to absorb and freeze the humidity in the air, mysteriously retaining its shape. This physics-defying ice is imported by Ronza the merchant, perhaps making it the most expensive cube of water you'll ever own!





The Polar Base is a base that has seen several appearances during events. Its stats are a mixture of the Dehydration Base and the Stone Base. It completely outclasses the Stone Base, but it does not have the attraction bonus that the Dehydration Base has. Also, when used with any weapon stronger than, or equal to, the Obelisk of Slumber, it has equal or greater power compared to a trap setup that uses the Explosive Base.

Purchasing Info

The Polar Base was available for purchase for 59,550 gold from Ronza's Traveling Shoppe during her New Year's Giveaway and MouseHunt's Birthday Giveaway visits. It refunded for 10,719 gold at the same location. It was also available as one of the many Gifts dropped by Elf and Abominable Snow mice, and more recently as one of the three gifts inside the Fancy Birthday Gifts dropped by Birthday mice. Being a limited-edition base, it is possible that it won't be sold in any future events.

History and Trivia

The Polar Base was introduced on 25 December 2008 when hunters were finally able to open their Gifts and discovered this base inside. It was first noted on a developer's Hunter's Profile on 23 December 2008 around 4:00 PM (EST) but was removed less than half an hour later.

It was given the limited edition seal on October 19th, 2009.

Furthermore, the melted water underneath the polar base was removed. Speculations for this change were that the release of newer traps would require that the base be an exact cubloid shape.
