Ronza stops in from time to time, bringing MouseHunters new and fancy trap components from other parts of the world. Little is known about her origins, and she never stays very long. The King allows Ronza to make port near the castle, to sell her goods. Perhaps the more she visits, the more we will find out about her...

Description and Requirements

Ronza's Traveling Shoppe is a special location, a large blimp that occasionally becomes available for hunters to visit and purchase special supplies. The merchant, Ronza, is a mysterious woman of unknown origin. When this ship lands, anyone who has access to the region in which she lands can visit her shop provided they have the gold to travel there. Her shop will show in the list of locations for the region where she lands just like any other location, and you travel there in the normal way.

Although Ronza's Traveling Shoppe is only available for short periods at a time, you can stay there and hunt for mice if you choose. If you are still in the shop when Ronza departs, you will be transported back to Gnawnia at no cost to you.

Shops

These are the shops that can be found in Ronza's Traveling Shoppe:

It is also important to note that Ronza's Traveling Shoppe will not always carry the same merchandise during her visits and some shops may not always be available.

  • Highlighted mice are those rarely encountered in the location.

Hunting Strategy

In this location there are mice of two different power types, Physical and Tactical. Tactical traps are very effective against the Tactical mice in this location, and of normal effectiveness against the physical mice, so a tactical trap is your best choice. Alternatively, both Physical and Hydro power traps are of normal effectiveness against both Physical and Tactical mice, so a Physical or Hydro trap can be used.

Cheese Usage

All standard cheese types can be used in this location. Hunters wanting the Burglar should use Brie or SUPER|brie+, and those wanting to attract the Nibbler or Black Widow can use SUPER|brie+ cheese.

Hunting Tips by Larry

Her name can cause both excitement and high blood pressure: Ronza!

Ronza is a traveling merchant that occasionally visits Gnawnia with all sorts of goodies. Make sure to visit the Trapsmith, Cheese Shoppe and General Store to see what she currently has for sale.

Be careful of how much you buy. You may find yourself unable to refund any excess wares.
