The enticing blue water hypnotizes hunters, distracting them from the dangerous mice that take up residence nearby. The terrain that surrounds the Lagoon is extremely unsteady, comprised of jagged rocks and slick moss. High up in the trees that surround the Lagoon are the nests of Harpy mice who act as a plague to all hunters, stealing their cheese, gold and crippling their courage. Some mice here are not attracted to conventional bait. It is highly recommended that a hunter use Gnarled cheese when hunting at the Lagoon.

The Lagoon is a difficult area to hunt in, it contains powerful mice that are weak to different power types so a hunter must seriously consider which trap they want to use. When hunting for specific mice, obviously using the right trap type for that mouse is the best idea. Tactical traps are a good compromise, and offer the best returns for the hunter.
The hunter also has the choice of which cheese to use. Gnarled cheese can be used for decent returns in this area, and a reasonable chance of attracting the Hydra mouse as well as most of the new mice to be found here.
Wicked Gnarly only attracts the stronger mice found in this location, including the elusive Silth Mouse. Wicked Gnarly is useful for hunters wishing to increase the number of Hydra mice they attract.
The Hydra mouse in this location drops the ship blueprints, which, when combined with crafting supplies purchased at the general store in the Great Gnarled Tree, form the map to a new location, the S.S. Huntington II.
To hunt in the Lagoon a Hunter must have:
A Hunter’s Title of at least Grandmaster.
The Map of the Lagoon from a Fairy Mouse in the Great Gnarled Tree.
And it is recommended that a Hunter should have:
A good Tactical Weapon.
Gnarled or Wicked Gnarly Cheese.
Hope you can swim! The waters of the Lagoon look dangerous!
To be successful here you will need Gnarled cheese, else you will find yourself having trouble attracting mice to your trap. If you need more Gnarled cheese, head back to the Great Gnarled Tree to collect potions from the mice there.
Dwelling in the water is the fearsome Hydra mouse. The Hydra originates from the Ocean to the East, where it is known for being the cause of many shipwrecks. For this reason, the Hydra is known for dropping many nautical items. If you have your sea legs, try hunting the Hydra. You may just discover the mysteries of the ocean in the process.
There are 6 new mice to be found in this location, and four of them can not be found in any other locations.
The Hydra Mouse drops various crafting supplies that can be used to create the map to Rodentia. The Hydra Mouse can be very difficult to catch.
Here we give an overview of the mice that can be encountered in this location, and how often you can expect to see them using various cheese.
Here is a breakdown of the various mice that can be found in the location, and what loot they might drop:

Here is a breakdown of the populations of mice in the location based upon cheese used (these results come from our survey); the values given are a percentage of all attractions, and how many of these mice you are likely to attract in 100 hunts using base attraction:
(Please note, results with less than 1,000 hunts submitted have a low level of accuracy and should be used as guidelines only)

|Base Attraction Rate||~97%|
Both Gnarled and Wicked Gnarly have a similar base attraction rate, so your choice comes down to which mice do you want to attract.
Gnarled is the better choice for hunters with weaker traps, as it attracts fewer of the stronger mice, allowing you to earn more points and gold.
Wicked Gnarly is a better choice if you are hunting for a specific strong mouse in this location.
We currently do not have enough results for Setup Options.
Here is a selection of Goals that a hunter may like to achieve:
The best type of trap to use for the Hydra is a Hydro weapon. Unfortunately these are only available for hunters who have already progressed into the Rodentia region or aquired a limited edition trap.
The best alternative is a Tactical trap with a good combination of power and luck.
Hydra mice are not too uncommon, but you can increase your chances of attracting one by using Wicked Gnarly cheese.
The Goblin mouse is commonly attracted with either Gnarled or Wicked Gnarly. It is also quite weak, so whilst a Shadow or Arcane trap will increase your chances of catching one, a strong Physical or Tactical trap can catch them.
Harpy mice are strong and quite rare mice, if you want to catch this mouse, a Shadow or Arcane trap is your best bet.
Previously Radioactive Blue cheese would increase your chances of attracting a Harpy mouse, although we have not yet received full confirmation, it doesn’t appear to be the case anymore.
The Silth is one of the most difficult mice in the game to catch.
My first piece of advice for catching this mouse is to wait. There are rumours that it will drop a new map piece in the future, so if you have other mice to get first, leave the Silth until later.
If however, you want one now, then hopefully this will help:
The first problem you face is collecting enough Wicked Gnarly cheese, the potions only convert 3 Brie or 6 Super Brie to Wicked Gnarly. As a result you’ll need to spend some time collecting these to have enough cheese.
On average, you’ll only attract one Silth per 40 Wicked Gnarly used, so it’s generally worth collecting a significant number of potions.
The best trap to use would be a high luck or high power Hydro trap, failing that, a high luck or high power Physical or Tactical trap might also work.
Be prepared to miss a significant number of Silth mice before your first catch.
The Troll mouse is a very strong mouse, but is especially weak to Shadow traps. Arming a powerful shadow trap will definately help you catch this mouse.
The Lagoon contains a number of mice that drop three different orbs. While these mice might not be the easiest to catch, the variety here does offer some incentive to hunters wishing to collect lots of orbs to hunt here.
Wicked Gnarly is the ideal choice for hunting orb dropping mice as it attracts the widest selection of them.
