Special Notes

As of 2013 Ronza visit, if you had purchased the Tarannosaurus Rex Trap from Ronza, you may skip purchasing the Ancient Torn Blueprint Piece at step 5 in this guide. (Reminder: you need 19 million points to arm the Tarannosaurus Rex Trap)

Main Goal

  • If you have the gold, you should stock some Gouda to use as bait for the next few areas. Gouda cheese will give you a better attraction and thereby give you better points or golds.

  • You don’t want to hunt here, because mice here are low on points and gold unless you have a special kind of cheese, so now move to Elub Shore

Note: This upgrade is highly recommended unless you had acquired the Chrome RhinoBot.

  • Now you would ask why not use the Tribal Base? It does have a highest power bonus in the game, but the high luck bases would be more effective. Check out the following demonstration as prove by using Catch Rate Estimation:

  • Lack in points and golds to craft the advance traps? No need to worry there are many places that you could boost them up quickly. You could go to the following 4 places:
Elub Shore For Points
Derr Dunes For Golds
Nerg Plains For a bit of both points and golds
Catacombs For Golds

Note: If you are looking for gold and finds Derr Dunes is too hard for you, go back to Catacombs to boost your gold and craft Rhinobot first.

  • After you had obtained the advanced traps move to next step

Step 6 – Seeds Collecting

Main Goal

  • Since you had upgraded your 3 traps, and it’s time to collect seeds for next stage. Follow the below table to collect the seeds needed using the 3 new traps.
Targeted Mice Targeted Place Required Loots Required Cheese
Champion, Protector, Elub Cheiftain Elub Shore Blue Pepper Seed, Ancient Frayed Blueprint Piece Shell
Defender, Slayer, Nerg Chieftain Nerg Plains Yellow Pepper Seed, Ancient Ripped Blueprint Piece Gumbo
Gladiator, Guardian, Derr Chieftain Derr Dunes Red Pepper Seed, Ancient Mangled Blueprint Piece Crunchy
  • Collect around 40 seeds of each type, if run out of special cheeses go craft more
  • After you had gotten enough seeds and the 3 different blueprints combine them with the one you purchased before
Ancient Frayed Blueprint Piece 1
Ancient Mangled Blueprint Piece 1
Ancient Ripped Blueprint Piece 1
Ancient Torn Blueprint Piece 1


  • Before going to Jungle of Dead, we need to make some preparation
  • Go to Cape Clawed Trapsmith and buy either Clockapult of Time (2.7 million gold/20million points) or Gorgon Trap (989,00 gold/7.5 million points)
  • Clockapult of Time is highly recommended, but if you are short on gold you could try Gorgon Trap instead. (You could also use Soul Catcher from 2011 Halloween Event, or upgrade it to Soul Harvester for better effect)
  • Buy Ancient Box Trap Blueprints while you are at Cape Clawed General Store
  • When you got the trap, you can now venture into Jungle of Dead

Additional Help for Hunters on Advancing to JOD

A lot of hunters are having financial difficulties in getting Clockapult of Time, and most of the hunters are looking for alternative ways to struggle through Jungle of Dread. So here I give you a few alternative paths that you can set your foot on to help you get past this struggle period of your hunt!

  • Buy Gorgon and Struggle through JOD – expect a lot of red boxes ahead!
  • If you happen to be at this stage during the Halloween event, buy some Dreaded Charms using Halloween Candies and arm them with Sinister Portal (or Gorgon). Note Sinister Portal + Dreaded Charm > Gorgon/COT.
  • If you happen to have Terrifying Spider Trap from 2012 Halloween Event – head over to Elub Shore and start farming your points to 29 million – again this requires patience!
  • If you have Soul Catcher from 2011 Hallowen Event, you can try struggle through JOD with it too – expect a lot of red boxes ahead!

Note: The main key to pass JOD is PATIENCE!
