The scientists of the nearby Laboratory would often come to the Mousoleum to harvest ‘spare parts’ for their various creations. This grim hunting location is now haunted by spirits of slain mice. The mice of this location seem almost unable to resist radioactive cheese.

The Mousoleum is an area filled with powerful Shadow mice. It’s common for a hunter to miss as many mice as they catch here, but those they do catch offer some great rewards in terms of points and gold.
It’s advisable that a hunter uses Radioactive Blue cheese in the Mousoleum, and has a Shadow trap armed.
The powerful Lycan mouse, if caught, can drop a map to the Training Grounds in Furoma.
To hunt in the Mousoleum a Hunter must have:
A Hunter’s Title of at least Master.
The Tattered Mousoleum Map from a Zombie Mouse in the Town of Digby.
And it is recommended that a Hunter should have:
A Shadow Weapon.
Radioactive Blue Cheese.
Brrr. . . this place gives me the creeps!
It’s dangerous to hunt in the Mousoleum, but the mice here come with a large reward for their capture. Mousoleum mice have a taste for Radioactive Blue cheese and can only be contained by a Shadow trap. Radioactive Blue cheese is made by using potions that Laboratory mice drop, and Shadow traps are available for purchase in Digby.
Listen closely for the howls of the fearsome Lycan mouse. . . these beasts recently migrated down from the North, and may hold the key to finding new hunting locations.
There are 6 new mice in the Mousoleum that a hunter won’t have encountered before, but all of these mice can be found in other locations.
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:

Radioactive Blue really is the best overall cheese to use in the Mousoleum, most other types of cheese will result in failures to attract.
For those specifically hunting for the Lycan Mouse, Moon works very well here. You will attract mostly Lycan mice, so be prepared to miss most of the mice you encounter.

Here is a selection of Goals that a hunter may like to achieve:
The Lycan Mouse is the toughest mouse you will encounter in the Mousoleum, and it drops the Shredded Furoma Map Piece.
Fortunately it is relatively common, so you should be able to attract this mouse without too much trouble.
There are two options for hunting this mouse; the first is to invest in a stronger Shadow Weapon.
Both the Sinister and Ambrosial Portals are quite capable of catching this mouse, but if you have enough gold, the Bottomless Grave will definately improve your chances of catching the Lycan Mouse.
The second option is to use Moon cheese. You will generally need to acquire quite a few pieces of this expensive cheese to ensure you catch the Lycan Mouse, but it is generally a cheaper and quicker alternative to upgrading your Shadow trap at this stage in the game.
Fortunately most of the Lycan mice caught do drop the map piece, so hopefully you won’t have to catch too many of them before you collect this loot.
As both of these traps are very similar, people are often undecided about which one to purchase.
The Ambrosial Portal offers a slightly better attraction rate, and a fresher cheese effect.
The Sinister Portal offers more power.
In terms of general guidance, the best weapon will depend on your style of play.
If you are a more active player, then the Sinister Portal is probably the better choice, offering quicker returns.
If you are a more passive player, then the Ambrosial Portal is probably the better choice, as it allows you gain the best returns from the limited cheese you have.
You may hear other players suggesting a high luck Physical or Tactical trap as an alternative to purchasing a Portal, claiming higher overall returns.
This certainly used to be the case, and many of those who make the suggestion are doing so from their own experiences.
However, the mechanics of the game have changed since this was a good idea. Luck used to be independent of effectiveness, now it is affected by it.
This has seriously reduced the ability of Physical and Tactical traps to perform in the Mousoleum.
So unfortunately, these types of trap are no longer a good alternative. A Shadow weapon is the best choice for this location.
