A: The answer is not as simple as you’d think, as many mice that are listed as SB+ only mice still can be caught with “regular” cheese, albeit not very well. But here is the list of mice (non-event mice) that prefer SB+ to other forms of cheese.
- Crimson Commander
- Crown Collector
- Desert Architect
- Dumpling Chef
- Fall Familiar
- Frosty Snow
- Living Ice
- Nightshade Masquarade
- Pygmy Wrangler
- Spring Familiar
- Tome Sprite
Q: Which is better? Luck or Power?
A: Depends on the situation. Typically, when your power type of your trap matches the power type of the mouse, you want to maximize your luck to have a better catch rate. However, some mice are more powerful and a higher power rating trumps luck for these mice (like Warmonger for example). It’s hard to give specific examples because there are varying pieces of evidence that you would need to consider before making a decision. But for the most part, luck is better than power.
A: In the Lagoon, armed with gnarled cheese. Wicked Gnarled Cheese will also work, just be sure to use a high-powered hydro trap if you go this route because of the Silth Mouse.
Q: How much gold do I need for Ronza?
A: 7 million more than you have.
Q: If I’m in a lucky streak with a sub-optimal trap, should I keep my trap and base the same? After all, look at these results!!
A: Human beings always try to find meaning in patterns. We try to imply causation with correlation because we cannot interpret the data or explain it in any other fashion. Please remember the phrase “Correlation does not imply causation.” Just because you caught 7 Hydra mice in a row with a Physical trap and missed your next 3 with a Hydro trap, that does not imply that a Physical trap is better suited to catching hydra mice than a Hydro trap. Sample size is key: as with every situation in Mousehunt, in small sample sizes, anything can (and will) happen. But statistics will win out over time, and the most optimal hunting setup you can use will still be the preferred method of hunting.
