The Relic Hunter Mouse is a breed of mouse found in various regions of the kingdom. However, it is only available in one location at a time. The available location changes randomly every 24 hours, at midnight GMT.

It is known to drop Relic Hunter Scroll Case as loot, but only if Hunters have fewer than 20 of them in their inventory.

From the mountains of Gnawnia to Zugzwang's famous Gardens, the Relic Hunter Mouse leaves no trap unturned in the search for elusive Ancient Relics. Sure, she can be found in the possession of some of the most dangerous mice around, but, well... That's dangerous! It's far safer (relatively) to try to check out the relics that hunters have accrued. And besides, free cheese!

This mouse is so dedicated to the study of Ancient Relics that she'll never approach your trap until you have at least one. The Relic Hunter Mouse will stay in one location for an entire day before moving on, so you'll have to search Gnawnia to find her every day!

Mouse ID#: 401


Every 24 hours the Relic Hunter Mouse randomly moves to one of the following locations. Viewing the Treasure Map popup under the Invites and Scroll Cases tab offers a hint to the Relic Hunter's current location.

  1. The Relic Hunter Mouse appears in the Living Garden and Twisted Garden at the same time.

Preferred Cheese

As of 27 July 2016, the Relic Hunter Mouse does not consume cheese or charms when attracted or caught.

Hunting Strategy

The Relic Hunter Mouse is encountered as a bonus hunt and does not consume cheeses or charms. It will not affect progress in any area when encountered.

All power types are of normal effectiveness against the Relic Hunter Mouse.

The Relic Hunter Mouse can only be attracted if a Hunter has at least one Ancient Relic in their inventory. Upon catching the Relic Hunter Mouse, one Ancient Relic is typically consumed, and the following message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal:

I caught an elusive Relic Hunter Mouse in [Location]! The mouse stole an Ancient Relic while it was in my trap, but dropped a Relic Hunter Scroll Case while scampering off!
I can go to my Special inventory to open it.
Make sure to tell your friends to check [Location] during the next [hours, minutes, seconds] to catch one!

However, if a Hunter has reached the maximum number (20) of Relic Hunter Scroll Cases in their inventory, the following message is displayed in their Hunter's Journal:

I caught an elusive Relic Hunter Mouse in the [Location]!
I already have the maximum allowed Relic Hunter Scroll Cases, so the mouse left my supply of Ancient Relics alone and scampered off.
Luckily she was not interested in my cheese or charms!
I should tell my friends to check the [Location] during the next [hours, minutes, seconds] to catch one!

The cap on scroll cases allows hunters to pursue the Relic Hunter during Tournaments without consuming too many Ancient Relics that are being saved up for location-specific maps.

Failure to catch a Relic Hunter Mouse results in the following message in the Hunter's Journal:

Aw! I failed to catch an elusive Relic Hunter Mouse!
I should tell my friends to check the [Location] during the next [hours, minutes, seconds] to catch one!

Further, the Relic Hunter Mouse will only be searching in one location at a time, so you'll have to search if you expect to find any!
