Muridae Market

Muridae Market

This fortified market has been ravaged by the relentless attacks of the Marching Flame. Local merchants are eagerly seeking the help of hunters to find construction materials and help rebuild their shops.

Overview

The Muridae Market is a support location for the Fiery Warpath, allowing you to acquire a number of useful items for use in that location.

This location is unique in that the shops are not available for use when you enter the location. Instead you must collect loot from mice in this area to rebuild the shops before they can be used.

Hunters will want to use their best Physical or Tactical weapons in this location – both are equally effective against the mice found here.

 

Requirements

To hunt in the Muridae Market a Hunter must have:
    A Hunter’s Title of at least Baron / Baroness.
    Caught a Warmonger Mouse from the Fiery Warpath.
And it is recommended that a Hunter should have:
    A strong Physical or Tactical weapon.
    Any cheese.

 

Hunting Tips by Larry

Oh dear, the Marching Flame has left this market in ruins!

Merchants have ordered a large supply of construction materials but it seems the local mice have managed to steal them all! They need your help hunting down the thieving rodents to find the materials required to rebuild their shops.

Rebuilding each shop will require varying amounts of Limestone Brick, Coconut Timber and Molten Glass. To make Molten Glass you’ll need to first rebuild the General Store where Shards of Glass and Flameshards can be exchanged in return for Molten Glass.

Using Brie or Gouda Cheese works well at attracting mice that carry construction materials, however using SUPER|brie+ will attract the cunning Desert Architect Mouse. Don’t let their size fool you — Desert Architects are known to carry a large supply of building materials!

The Charm Shoppe requires quite a few materials to rebuild, but by rebuilding it you’ll be able to purchase Artisan Charms. These charms will attract a wider variety of mice that carry unique loot including an abundance of orbs!

Good luck rebuilding the market, and remember: Limestone is heavy, lift with your legs!

 

New Mice

There are 13 new mice in the Muridae Market that a hunter won’t have encountered before, none of these mice can be found in other locations.
