The best combination of a weapon and base at a given location depends on a number of factors. These factors include:

  • How powerful is the trap combination
  • What is the effectiveness of the trap which is determined by the type of mice available the location
  • How lucky is the trap combination
  • In combination with the type of bait that the hunter is using how well does the setup attract mice
  • What is the impact of the setup on the Stale Cheese effect
  • What is your current goal
    • If you are interested in profit you may be willing to attract fewer mice and catch fewer mice so long as you are earning gold the fastest. This depends on the cost of your cheese.
    • If you are interested in points you want to be catch the most mice and not care which particular mice are involved
    • Some hunters who are looking to complete their mouse collection will want the best setup for catching rare mice.

Excluding mice that are rarely encountered Lagoon mice include 9 physical mice, 7 tactical mice, and 2 shadow mice. This is a rough guideline on which setup is best suited for a particular goal. The best choice for a particular goal is given a ranking of 1.
