Arcane Power Type Mouse

Most of the new mice are Forgotten, but the last unknown one is Arcane. Thoughts? Shinnok 11:32, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

My guess is it's probably used to prevent players from using Shadow traps against the "Boss" mouse of the zone, #57 mouse. -- Grexx 12:32, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Its still a new power type. So Arcane traps will be more effective against Forgotten as well as Arcane type mice. Hmm.. quite a few pages might need editing then. Shinnok 05:33, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Very effective does not mean double power

There was a post here stating that traps which are "very effective" have double the chance of catching a mouse. First of all, there is speculation, unconfirmed by the devs, that some traps have twice the power against mice of the same power type. This is not true of physical mice, which no trap is very effective against. Also, twice the power, even if true, does not mean twice the chance of catching. For example, a drillbot will almost always catch the (tactical) dwarf mouse. It isn't possible for a tactical trap (even one with 10,000 power) to catch twice that many. Conversely, a low power tactical trap will rarely catch a strong tactical mouse such as the master of the dojo, but a physical trap of the same power will almost never catch it - and certainly do so less than half as often. -- Pakaran 18:46, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
