A potion is a form of loot dropped by mice. By using these potions in the Potions Inventory tab, a hunter can convert charms into special charms and cheese into more valuable cheese with better attraction rates or, more likely, special cheese, used for specific regions or mice. Conversion rate with respect to the quantities of cheese used to cheese generated is always 1:1 (the amount of cheese used is the same as the amount of the more valuable or special cheese produced). Using a potion may use up gold in the process. Using higher quality cheese generally will decrease the cost of conversion and increase the quantity converted. The hunter's title also affects the amount of cheese converted for some potions.

Suggested Strategies

Source cheese selection

For most conversions (exceptions being Brie and Greater Brie potions), it is not possible to accurately say which method is the most cost-effective.

  • When potions are relatively scarce (such as Radioactive Blue Potions), the opportunity cost of finding far fewer potions makes the higher quality cheese the better investment for many people despite the relatively high market cost. However, the "best choice" is ultimately determined by each hunter's personal preference and priorities.
  • Some potions (such as Ancient Potion and Runic Potion) produce cheese that can also be crafted at a lower cost than the conversion. In this case, the hunter will need to make the choice between crafting and using potions based on the availability of the crafting ingredients versus the availability of the potions, again keeping in mind opportunity cost.
  • Since the cheese used in the conversion process of Brie Potion and Greater Brie Potion can all be bought, the only factor in which cheese to use for conversion should be the total profit calculated based on value of converted Brie minus the vendor cost (or refund value if obtained from loot) of the cheese used. For converting Brie Potions, the best choice is using Swiss. For Greater Brie Potions, the best choice is using Marble.

How many to convert

If the conversion process requires gold or the hunter's title affects the amount of cheese generated, a suggested strategy is not converting all the potions at once. Instead the hunter may wish to convert just enough for the current hunting period, and bring along a supply of the cheese to be converted later, as the hunter earns more gold or reaches the next rank and can gain from the better conversion rates.

Insufficient cheese for conversion

Prior to MouseHunt 3.0, hunters were able to carry out a conversion even if they did not have enough cheese to fully utilize the potion. Using a Radioactive Blue Cheese Potion for an example, if a Grandmaster only had 15 SUPER|brie+ on hand, he was able to convert that 15 SUPER|brie+ into 15 Radioactive Blue cheese. However this resulted in a loss of 20 potential Radioactive Blue cheese (from a maximum possible of 35), and was a waste considering the difficulty in obtaining potions.

However, in the current state of the game, it is impossible to perform any conversion unless all prerequisites are fully met (enough potions, gold, and cheese), with no partial conversions allowed. Therefore, it is now safe to attempt too large of a conversion to receive a message on how many more resources are required to make the conversion successful.

Brie Potion, like the alchemists' elixirs of old, turns baser cheeses, such as Cheddar, Marble or Swiss, into Brie.

Gauntlet Potions

Gauntlet Potions are dropped by mice in the King's Gauntlet. Imbuing ordinary cheese with these potions results in Gauntlet Cheeses. At each level of the Gauntlet, mice drop potions that create cheese capable of catching mice at the next level of the Gauntlet. For example, tier 2 mice drop Gauntlet Potion Tier 3 used to create Gauntlet Cheese Tier 3 that attracts tier 3 mice. Thus, collecting potions is key to progressing through the Gauntlet.

Description This potion converts Marble, Swiss or SUPERlbrie+ into an aromatic cheese blend that the rogue mice on Tier 2 of the King's Gauntlet will do anything to steal. Use this potion on your Marble, Swiss, or SUPERlbrie+ to make a swashbuckling flavor of cheese that the Swordsmice on Tier 3 of the Kings Gauntlet will want to put on a skewer. One bottle of this potion is enough to turn a quantity of Swiss, Brie or SUPERlbrie+ into a sharp cheese that will make the taste buds of the Bardic Mice, who live on Tier 4 of the King's Gauntlet, sing with delight. The powerful aroma of this potion will transfer well to your Swiss, Brie or SUPERlbrie+, creating a bold cheese which appeals well to the Black Mage and its minions, the denizens of the King's Gauntlet Tier 5. This potion, when mixed with Brie or SUPERlbrie+, will purify the cheese, making it delicious, nutritious, and fit for the noble mice living on Tier 6 of the King's Gauntlet. Mix Brie or SUPERlbrie with this potion, and it will shrivel up into a dusty old cheese suitable for the deathly mice on the 7th Tier of the King's Gauntlet. Pour this potion over your Gouda or SUPERlbrie+, and your cheese will transcend the boundaries of time and space, becoming an anomalous blend fit only for consumption by the King's Gauntlet's most deadly warrior: the Eclipse Mouse.
