*** Introduction *
Its sort off a shock after a long time having a clear goal: going forwards and onwards! And for some it was along time formulating our own goals as ‘all was achieved’ inside the Mousehunt game. Now all of a sudden there’s lots to do! And still more coming every week! For many this feels like: aaaargh what first? where shall i go? But we will adjust Judy :) oh yes we will. To help me out now i made a list of what i still need, mouse-wise. And of what some goals might be… I am still not very focused, but at least i am no longer all over the place.
The Nibbler ‘paper’ has stopped. This is old news ofcourse, but aren’t we still adapting? Especially since all these new developments and updates and happenings the loss is felt! Browsing the forums is all one can do to keep up… There’s two new ‘papers’ posted regularly in the tavern, but right now i would not recommend one yet as the ‘new Nibbler’.
And well, it’s not easy to live up to that level of newscatering as the Nibbler had its sources inside the Castle at times and a crew of 4 to 8. Please dont expect this Mibbler of ours to ever be that great, but there is something we can do to keep eachother informed:
We are gonna try and post a Mibbler with news and information once a week. “MhHitM is all we need! Rata tadada!” Make that, for pronunciation and singing along: “Mibbler is all we need… Rata tadada! “
– No News, no Mibbler, as there is a a very strong-headed non-fluff person on the board of advisors.
– No Fluff, well – we have to warn you here – but in case of no fluff we might accidentally still post a Mibbler with strong warnings of putting on your sunglasses first before reading.
– Anybody who has news or wants to write a fluffy piece but not a whole Mibbler, can send the copy to my pm-box.
– Any news that is worthwhile information on an area or level will be integrated into the MhHitM FAQ Threads. Mibblers may dissappear, as old news does… gets used for the fishes and such ^^
– If no crew: no Mibbler. Which is really really sad. Luckily there’s always the possibility of posting your news or newsrelated question in the last Mibbler’s thread.
** New gadgets that need promotion: the Gorgon Trap and the Molten Shrapnel Base *
The new trap, the Gorgon Trap, was new with last week’s update but was not mentioned in the dev’s newspost. Some cosy hunters found it in a dark corner of the Cape Clawed’s Store. Both price-wise as stats-wise, it’s the long awaited in between Clock & BG-trap. Stats: http://mhwiki.hitgrab.com/wiki/index.php/Gorgon_Trap
For those working hard to get a Gorgan Trap, MhHitM has opened a trep-help program for it!
A new base that can be crafted, the Molten Shrapnell Base. You can find a thread about that one here, as hunters on the forums have worked hard to crack the secret recipe – as of old, we reported the goings on of the Shrapnel Base in the Making in here: http://tinyurl.com/shrapnelbase
You need 200 metal scrap for that one, so it will be a while for most of us to scrap that together ^^
*** Latest new mice:
The last two new mousies added this week were officially meant to be launched with the Windmill & Gnawnia adjustments, but these two were not ready yet, so they got added a bit later: – the Spotted mouse (meadow) and – the Cherry mouse (Calm Clearing, and for this one you need a special cheese and a potion to make it, also to beget in the Calm Clearing).
The devs’ newspost on Cherry: http://apps.facebook.com/mousehunt/newspost.php?news_post_id=17
MAK has made a thread for exchanging info on these two: http://tinyurl.com/spottedcherry
There are (or were?) Glitchpaws released this week. :) Dev’s have been sneakily unclear on how long they will be here for. The forums have been filled with little and longer threads on which locations had the most catches of Glitchpaws, especially Lagoon and Jungle were ‘hot’. But since the first “i have 100 Glitchpaws” – thread appeared, which actually sortoff coincided with FBF on friday, the excess of Glitchpaws caught in some areas have ‘dried up’. Nobody knows whether we have hunted them a tat too well, or whether it was never meant to be that numerous. There is just the occasional catch reported now.
*** Mousehunt Funbar
The ticker invites you hunter to go install the Mousehunt Funbar. Ofcourse were we all awaiting the sb+-for-3-searches-function as it was in the Toolbar, but this is not fully functional yet. Devs are still looking into how to realise that. In the mean time reports keep coming in of the Funbar’s effects on the Horn showing up or not showing up at all and additional windows opening. If i were you i would wait a bit with installing, for the devs to tweak and twist this latest addition. But if you are tight for sb+: if you do install you will get 10 sb+ from the devs :)
= This just in =
While i wrote this the reference in the Ticker has been deleted. Seems the devs have caught up with the tiny problems themselves! =
*** Giftbasket for sb+ & Golden Shield *
Oh so cute! And a grand way of gifting sb+ to a friend or Hero as they will get a Golden Shield with it for the duration of a month! :) You will find the link for the Giftbasket on your camppage for now. Rumour has it it will not stay there forever. Ofcourse it also shows up when you click the regular Donate thingy ^^
I am so not going to go into the discussion of the game overpromoting sb+ or making sb+ far too critical inside the game. My opinion for now is its far too soon to have conclusions at the ready, i am studying the behaviour of new recruits and the ways they find inside the game, before burning my fingers & tongue and whatever on the subject.The price on the market is still skyrocketing and thats not a good thing nor a good sign. I am wondering what the group that promised us some market-price-action is waiting for?
*** Goodluck & Happy Hunting :)
You might not yet have finished the Balack’s Cove challenge? And you might not yet have finished running up that Gauntlet? But its all staying (not the Glitchpaws) and you will have plenty of time to get there. So if you are confused: you will get it sorted in time my dear! :*
*** Last but not least:
Friday 16 July was MAK’s 2nd MH anniversary – 2 years of Moushunting! By now you will have missed the sb-lottery in honour of the day, but dont hesitate to go congratulate her in the thread! Hip hip hip Hurray! :D
