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 attraction, you want mice to show up to your trap even if you do not catch them.
    • If you are interested in points you want to be catch the most mice and not care which particular mice are involved.
    • If you are interested in making gold, you need to take into consideration the cost of your bait.
    • If you are looking for a particular loot drop or completing your mouse collection you want the best setup for catching rare mice like the Mole mouse.

Excluding mice that are rarely encountered Meadow mice include 8 physical mice and 1 tatical mice. Some hunters will be looking for the Dwarf mouse because it will drop Plankrun's Journal Entries on Gnawnia. 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.
