Your first trip here is basically meaningless. Unless your first trip here is when you have the Ancient Box Trap (or you have some LE Forgotten trap that I never mention in the guide sections), you cannot catch the Acolyte Mouse yet. If you noticed, he’s an arcane mouse, and you need a Forgotten trap to catch arcane mice (yes, yes, I know…arcane traps catch forgotten mice and forgotten traps catch arcane mice….those silly developers).
So don’t worry about catching this guy at this point. Either get back to working on making it to the Tribal Isles or head back to the Forbidden Groove and stock up on runes and scrap metal.
Catching the Acolyte and Chrono Mice
Welcome back peeps! Ready to catch these guys?
As a reminder, to get here, you have to be in the Forbidden Groove when it closes and catch a Realm Ripper.
- Runic Cheese (1 piece): 1 stale cheese, 3 ionized salt, 1 rune
- Runic Cheese (2 pieces): 1 stale cheese, 3 ionized salt, 1 rune, 1 magic essence
Remember, the recipes above are how you get runic cheese, or simply use the Runic Potions you got from the mice in the Jungle of Dread.
In the AR, you want to equip your strongest base and the Ancient Box Trap, along with the runic cheese. You may not attract an Acolyte Mouse. Well, just keep trying. Sometimes it takes a long time. If you run out of cheese, you have to get more by either crafting it or imbuing it from potions (and you know where to get those). It is NOT easy, so don’t expect it to be.
When you catch him, the Acolyte drops the Mysterious Box. There are two things in every box: 1) Frozen Scroll (used to craft the Ice Maiden), and 2) Random reward. The reward could be 60 pieces of rumble cheese. It could be 30 runes. It could be 6 fire salts. It just varies.
This is not an easy task my friend. Good luck.
