Stale Cheese is the by-product of baited cheese going stale from a trap's cheese effect. Depending on the type of baited cheese, one of 3 types of stale cheese will be created. Only hunters with the title of Apprentice and above will be able to collect stale cheese.

Stale cheese is automatically added to your crafting inventory.

Stale Cheese

Dried up morsels of cheese are often the result of traps made with harmful chemicals.

Standard Stale Cheese is created when most types of cheese becomes stale. They are listed as follows:

Usage: It is used in the crafting of Ancient and Runic cheese.

History and Trivia
For a short period of time it was dropped by Scavenger mice in the Catacombs.

Stale SUPER|brie+

The sight of this item often draws a tear or two from even the most steadfast MouseHunter. The magic of this item seems to be empowered by its almost paradoxical existence.

Stale SUPER|brie+ is created when cheese that have Magic Essence as one of the ingredients turns stale, with the exception of Ancient cheese. They are listed as follows:

Usage: There is currently no known use for Stale SUPER|brie+.

Radioactive Sludge

This toxic waste is the result of radioactive blue cheese turning stale.

Radioactive Sludge is created when Radioactive Blue cheese goes stale.

Usage: It is used in crafting the Mutated Venus Mouse Trap.

Gathering Stale Cheese

Since stale cheese is used in Ancient and Runic cheese, hunters may find themselves needing more. In order for cheese to become stale, a few conditions are required:

  • The cheese must not attract a mouse (not catching is not enough - cheese stolen by a mouse, with or without red box, cannot become stale).
  • The trap's cheese effect must not preserve the cheese from staling

This suggests that to get stale cheese, one must use a trap with a stale cheese effect baited with a cheese that does not attract very many mice.

Weapons with a stale effect include

There is only one base to date with a stale effect.

Cheddar or White Cheddar are the two kinds of cheese with the lowest attraction. In most areas, these cheeses will still attract some mice. The Mousoleum, Catacombs, Forbidden Grove or Acolyte Realm are areas where few or no mice are drawn to standard cheeses. In these locations, traps collect the most stale cheese in the least amount of time.

Stale cheese farming is nearly as effective with a Wooden Base with Target or Birthday Cake Base rather than the Explosive. These bases attract more mice, therefore reducing the opportunities for stale cheese drops. In some areas, there is a reason to use these alternate bases because of the possibility of catching rare mice or collecting rare loot or potions (Meadow, Town of Digby, Bazaar, Laboratory).
