This tournament can be done in two different areas with different trap setups:

Choice 1

Trap: Chrome Tacky Glue + Base with 30+ luck ( other combinations with same or more luck), else use Sphynx Wraph with highest attraction base
Cheese: Cherry
Charm: Attraction


  • Chrome Tacky Glue is used due to our focus is a hard to attract Cherry Mouse
  • Can substitute with a trap setup with 30+ luck, if not possible use Sphynx Wraph with attraction base and charm

Choice 2

  • For this choice, mice in this area has low catch rates but worth huge points, therefore a minimum of Oasis Water Node is required, for better result use Phantasmic Oasis Trap 

General Tips:

  • Choice 1 relies on how lucky you are on attracting the Cherry Mice
  • Choice 2 relies on the powerful hydro trap you got, where the catch rate matters
  • Both choices are unstable, so expect uncertainties during the tournament
  • Either choice you chose you should stick with it till the end

Trap: Chrome Monstrobot/Sphynx Wrath/Clockwork Portal/Phantasmic Oasis Trap (Base on the Seasons)

  • Rest of the members should hunt in the Seasonal Garden

    Special thanks to those who have enrolled but did not start. Actually the position count includes all those who have enrolled, thus it will be easier to get tokens if many teams have enrolled but did not start. 🙂

    • April 2, 2013 at 10:28 PM

  4. May 24, 2013 at 1:40 AM

    New tournies…Shrubberies, Lost City, Crypt, Tribal 2 Jungle while Dragon Slayer is not that new.

    • May 24, 2013 at 1:54 AM

      New but something you prefer not doing at all haha

      • May 24, 2013 at 1:59 AM

    anything on the relic hunter tourney?

  6. Jason
    June 1, 2013 at 8:15 AM

    I do not get the logic behind Forgotten Tournament’s last bullet point. To go to forbidden grove when the tournament is ending? Some tournaments end when it’s closed, just opened, or needs some more hours to close. Please explain or remove that.

    • June 1, 2013 at 8:51 AM

      “it” ends, the it here refers to the closing time of forbidden grove not the tournament. This works mostly for longer Forgotten tournaments, where the forbidden grove reach it’s closing time during the tournament and all members can go there to catch a realm ripper mouse when it closes and get a fast 25 points each.

        June 2, 2013 at 3:17 PM

        Oh… gotcha

  8. August 16, 2013 at 9:50 PM

    Jason :
    You never added them….

    Because they never came up, and I didn’t get a chance to do one myself. Also that I was busy doing other stuff, so I had put this aside. If you can provide me info, I will update it straight away.

    Sharing the Winning Task:

    Travel to the right location on time
    Horn frequently
    Ensure correct setup and adequate supplies
    Warn other teammates beforehand if facing an issue
    Impossible is just a word for the incompetents
    Never discourage during tourneys
    Never spend too much time on one particular mouse…In the end it is how many tourney points that you are contributing that matters
    Interactive dialogues
    Never be offline during tourneys
    Gut feeling works once or twice
    Trapchecks can be used wisely
    Avoid missing a horn by start horning in the early minutes
    Stay tune for trap setting changes
    King’s reward clearance

    Why on earth would you recommend Valentine charms for the Full Moon tourney when Moon cheese has a 96% attraction rate and Lycans have a 3-eff minimum luck of 60 Shadow? Catch rate charms apply.
    Rift/Ancient > GTB/Champ > SJB/Ancient > Rift/Chrome > GTB/Ancient > SJB/Chrome > GTB/Chrome > Rift/SLC > SJB/SLC > Rift/SPC > GTB/SLC > SJB/SPC > GTB/SPC are all better than Rift with Valentines charms.

    • August 30, 2013 at 1:23 AM

      Like 路人A said in actual cases valentines seems to attracts more lycans, I have done this tournament many times, valentines charm seems to work the best.

        September 26, 2013 at 11:14 AM

        Mere personal experience is nothing compared to the actual data. Just saying

  11. August 29, 2013 at 9:02 PM

    In actual cases valentine charm better attracts lycans.

  12. August 31, 2013 at 12:39 AM

    where is the crushed ice?

  13. Jason
    September 3, 2013 at 12:39 AM

    eh.. Did you ever get around to add the Gauntlet Gladiator or The King’s Challenge? Oh and can you add the Tribal Isle Grand Tournament 2?

  14. September 10, 2013 at 8:26 PM

    For the Tribal 2….
    Need to be after ballack with VVS or after dragons with dragonbanes.

  15. September 10, 2013 at 8:28 PM

    For Gauntlet and King’s Challenge, the higher the floor so do the expected points. This works in the long run but the lowest tier has the highest points mouse, so for short tourneys may try your luck.

    Why are only physical traps viable in muridae market tournament? Both tactical and physical should be viable.

  17. Luc
    November 18, 2013 at 12:53 PM

    What is the benefit of going on a hunt all together? Me and my team just did, but I don’t see the benefits…

    • November 26, 2013 at 7:29 PM

      Other team members may afk and let 1 member sound the horn for that hour. Tho if your team members don’t come back after 1 hour, they will be inactive and your horn can’t take them to a hunt anymore.

    The mice caught only counts when you’ve sounded the tourney horn.
