2012 Great Winter Hunt Guide

– Added Greedy AI Guide

The long waited event of the year had finally started. The Great Winter Hunt had commenced starting on 11th of December.

Background Story

Long ago, a little mouse called Albert had his heart broken repeatedly by Santa when he asked and asked for presents every year, but never received them. This continued year after year until finally he decided he’d had enough, and would get his own presents from then on!

Hunters have been reporting sightings of a confused-looking mouse with a mailbag, handing out old letters of Al’s. Each has a clue to an old toy that he wanted and didn’t get. If we can just re-create that toy — or a reasonable version of it — and give it to him, perhaps we can warm his heart enough to get him to see joy again!

Entering the Event Area

To enter to the area you will first need to catch the Confused Courier Mouse at any location with any cheese. It also drops a “Letter to Santa, Age 12”. With this letter you will now able to travel to Gnawnia Region’s MegaBuy Mart.

First Glance Upon Entering


Upon entering to the event area, you will notice the Head Up Display (HUD). The HUD has a few dates on it with a hint underneath saying “Hunt with Festive Feta to find Confused Courier mice and Toy Parts!” This clearly hinted us that we should use Festive Feta cheese to hunt mice in this location to start collecting more “letters” from the Confused Courier Mice and toy parts.


Next thing you might notice is there is a calendar (bottom left) that you may click on, which will show you a more clear representation of the dates that the new mice will appear. From guessing right now each new appear mouse will drop different toy parts. So keep track of those dates on the calendar!

Second Glance Upon Entering

Upon entering the new event area, the 2nd thing you should check out is the Shops.


From checking out the TrapSmith you would realise that all the GWH trap skins from last year are again available this year. Also you will see there is a NEW TRAP that is available for purchase. It’s the Wrapped Gift Trap!


As you can see you will need 6 different toys and 100 Ice Coins with 150k gold to purchase. This clearly sets the main goal for you right now! Collect the toys that are made from toy parts and Ice Coins while you are hunting for the parts.

Note: The new trap is possibly not the final form! This physical trap is a pay back gift for the 12 year old that hates Santa. According to the information below!

When you have all the toys completed, you can use the toys you created plus the Ice Coins the mice have been dropping to buy the Wrapped Gift Trap, which you can use to give Greedy Al his presents! Your reward will be an exceedingly special trap, unique from all other traps in the game!

General Store

The General Store is same as last year, full of supplies for all the areas, which all can be traded with Ice Coins. However this year they added 2 “REAL ITEMS” that you could buy with gold and both is at a ridiculous high cost!


Another surprise I had found is that there is a special “Winter Hunt Theme” item you can purchase at General Store (at the end of the list). This can be used just like the Halloween theme we gotten before! (for the journal)


Charm Shoppe

The Charm shoppe has a special event charm, Winter Charm. Which can be traded with 2 Festive Feta each. Here you will also see other charms are available for trading with Ice Coins and some letter requirements. (These letter are believe to be drop by different mice in the area which will start to appear on the listed dates on the calendar)

Beginning the Hunt

To hunt the toys, first you will need the toy parts. To get the toy parts, you will need to get the special “Letter to Santa” first. To attract the mice that drops the letter you will need Festive Fetas.

So the first thing you should do is start farming Festive Feta by using your best luck/attraction trap setup with any cheese that you are comfortable of buying. (recommends Brie cheese, else can use Gouda for better attraction)

Note that while hunting with Festive Feta cheese, event mice have chance of dropping Gnawnia Winter Gift as loot. So far they gave me 3 Gilded Cheese each.


Toy Hunt

Trap Setup Recommendation

Luck > Attraction > Power

27 luck will be perfect, while you should have some attraction rate and consider power last as in this case it’s not so important.

MouseHunt 2012 Halloween Event

October 19, 2012 13 comments

It’s one of the most EXCITING event of the year again! Haunted Terrortories opens again! This year the Swamp Thang Mouse had burst forth from the Living Garden and charged into Gnawnia! He kicked Mousevina’s butt and settled on her seat in Haunted Terrortories along with last year’s loot and new treasures!

As this event may varies over time, updates will be made accordingly. Please check back from time to time for updates and changes apply to any of the contents.

Last Update: 27th Oct 2012
– Hunters recently discovered that  Swamp Thang drops Witch’s Brew Skin!

So let the Haunt Begins!

Collecting Treats and Tricks

  • The easiest way to start collecting is go to your profile and click on “Visit another friend” and “Ring Doorbell”. Then you will be either treated with 3 Candy Corn Cheese or tricked with 3 Ghoulgonzola Cheese. You can ring a maximum of 10 doors per day. So you just do this every day to collect your cheese.
  • Due to the fact that you require both type of Hallowen’en cheese, the best way to collect them by ring doorbells is note down or contact your friends to find out if they are tricking or treating. This way you can get a balance amount of each type.
  • While you are doing that you may visit some friends that haven’t chosen a Hallowe’en cheese this year, in that case you can “Collect Cobweb”. You can collect a maximum of 5 Cobweb from friend’s profiles for this entire event this year.
  • Another button you might see while you are jumping around profiles is a Halloween Candy. Click them and collect it as you go and you will need them to buy stuff at the shoppes in Haunted Terrortories.
  • After collecting your daily Hallowe’en cheese from your friends’ profile but still not enough. You may arm regular cheese and hunt in Haunted Terrortories. Mice here occasionally drop Candy Corn or Ghoulgonzola cheese. (more detail will be provided in the location descriptions later)

Start the Hunt

  • Special Note for Novice Ranks
    • Haunted Terrortories only open for Recuit or above, so if you are a Novice don’t panic. The Halloween cheeses have a high attraction rate in the Meadow during the Halloween season. So use them as free cheese to advance yourself to Recruit. It really doesn’t take long for you to get to Recruit from Novice, so you might want to keep the Halloween cheese and use them as soon as you advanced to Recruit.
  • Understanding the HUD
    • As soon as you entered the Haunted Terrortories you will notice the HUD. This shows your progress through the three sub-locations in this area: Corn Maze, Haunted Manor and Pumpkin Patch.
    • Now you may notice that there are 2 lines of boxes, one labeled as Mice Treated and the other as Mice Tricked These are to help you keep track of your progress on both treat and trick path. So yes you will need to use both special cheese to complete each sub-area. Every catch with Candy Corn will fill up the Treated Mice bar and every catch with Ghoulgonzola will fill up the Tricked Mice bar. NOTE: if you filled up the bar of one side without filling the other, the boxes does not fill pass to the next location and your cheese will be wasted. (eg. if you filled 10 “Mice Tricked” boxes without filling in all 10 boxes of “Mice Treated”, the boxes on the “Mice tricked” side will not go pass the Haunted Manor symbol. Any mice you catch with Ghoulgonzola cheese will not contribute to your progress.)
    • Once you had filled up the both progress bars of the sub-location you will automatically travel to the next sub-location.

        • Strongest Shadow/Arcane (If you don’t have these two power types, it’s ok mice from Corn Maze are here too, and catching them with physical will still enable you to advance through this area.) Note for hunters that have very good physical traps, you might want to use physical over Shadow/Arcane here. As you hardly encounter the shadow types. Physical will be more efficient.

        • 39 Mice Treated then catch a Treat Mouse
        • Note this is by assuming it follows the same format as last year, will update this if I found any changes this year.

    • Statistics
      • Power: 2400 (Shadow)

      • Required points to arm: 29,000,000 points
      • AUGH! That is a huge spider! That must have been what the massive cocoon was for! The sheer terror this incredible spider inflicts on surprised mice adds a fantastic +10 luck to your trap.
      • “Dozens, no of tiny spiders must have created this huge cocoon, but why? Perhaps equipping it in the Haunted Terrortories or the Seasonal Garden during Fall will reveal”So the trap will have the effect enables in HT and Seasonal Garden Fall Season.
    • [EDITED] Trap discussion
      • From the look of the stats of this trap, it’s better than the trap we got last year the Soul Harvester. Unfortunately again this trap is same as Soul Harvester, requires a total point of 29 million before you can arm it. Sorry bad news for the hunters that are looking for a substitute for COT.
      • From testing this trap will have the same special bonus luck as Soul Harvester, you will have a +10 luck if you arm it in Haunted Terrortories and Seasonal Garden during Fall. 
      • This LE trap will have no upgrade, it’s at its final form once you obtained it from Swamp Thang
      • Overall this trap is just amazing, the look is awesome along with it’s fantastic stats. Such a great Halloween gift! I say it’s must have! 🙂
Note: All information given above is assuming the the system of the event is same as last year, any changes known will be made according as time goes.

Strategies and other information

  • If you have a good shadow/arcane trap and you have a good supply of both Hallowe’en cheese, then you can buy Spooky Charms (600 gold + 1 Candy Corn + 1 Ghoulgonzola) from Charm Shoppe
  • Here is a very good table showing you how the spooky charm makes an difference towards the attraction rate of the mice in pumpkin patch
  • Note that some particular mice might require Spooky Charms to attract like last year.
  • Go and surf around the shoppes to check out the new skins, charms, and crates that are available this year.
  • For recommendations on what are best to be bought and take advantages from this event’s shoppes, check out MKHAS’s purchase recommendations.
  • Something special had being added during this event, if you click your shield and go to your profile you will notice there is a “change theme” button after your statistics. By clicking it you may change from your original journal skin to Golden Shield or Halloween Skin. Obviously the Golden Shield skin is only available for hunters that had the LGS. However the Halloween Skin can be obtain from crafting, one of the crafting part can be found in Haunted Terrortories’ General Shoppe for 5 Cobweb.
  • Now you should also check your free gifts, you will notice a item call “Pumpkin Treat Basket”, you may ask friends to send you this gift each day. It contains random loots, but includes Halloween special cheese, spooky mask, and Whisker Woods Wicked Hat.
  • Location of all the skins –
