Hi there, just get bored with study and feel like writing something here. Well, mousehunt is my favourite. This is the Fiery Warpath walkthrough that i wrote personally for my friend recently. I will just share it here for anyone who r interested. This is seriously a very brief walkthrough, which i tried to make it as simple as possible (which i dont even mention the exact names of the mice). For detailed information, u must still refer to the mousehunt wiki. Thanks.... :-)
1st thing, the formation of Fiery Warpath (FW) is as following:
Wave 1: 3 Physical breeds.
Wave 2: 3 Physical, plus 1 Hydro and 1 Tactical breeds.
Wave 3: 3 Physical+1 Hydro+1 Tactical, and another Arcane breeds.
Wave 4: 12 Theurgy + Warmonger (Boss, invulnerable unless all 12 Theurgy have been captured)
Use of charms is important in FW. Physical charms got 3 types (Warrior, Scout and Archer), can be bought. Some need to be crafted: Mage charm is for Hydro mice, and Cavalry charm is for Tactical mice. There is no charm for Arcane mice. Then, there r 2 versions for ALL the charms i had explained to u just now: basic version (only attraction effect), and super version (require magic essence, better attraction rate (sort of....) and additional power damage). U can see a meter below the horn, showing the types and number of mice that u need to defeat b4 u r able to proceed to the next wave. So, talking about effects of charms, when u have captured 3 SAME mice IN A ROW, it causes extra 2 mice to retreat, meaning tht u have defeated 5 mice in total. Then, when u capture ANOTHER 3 mice, tht means 6 IN A ROW, u will further cause retreat of 4 mice, meaning tht u have defeated an amount of original 6 (in a row), plus 2 retreats during '3 in a row' and finally another 4 retreats during '6 in a row', so now the total mice u have defeated is 6+2+4=12 mice from tht particular breed! Well, if u r damn lucky, and ur streak is still undergoing, a Gargantuamouse (Gaga) will be released when u get streak 7 (7 in a row). From this point onwards, Gaga mouse may pop out at any time to break ur streak, ranging from after streak 7, to a max of streak 9. Oh ya, when u get 9 in a row, u cause additional 6 mice to retreat, but it is very difficult, i seldom got it. When u get streak 9, Gaga mouse will come for SURE. Well, i got one incidence b4, where it didnt appear as the 10th mouse, and i got a streak 10 bcoz i forgot to change to Ice Maiden, but this is very very rare. Gaga is a 100% capture using Ice Maiden, no worry, just tht u have to be good in estimating which streak it will appear.
Besides Gaga, u will also encounter 2 support mice which may appear occasionally through the waves (except wave 4). Crimson Commander, once u capture it, it basically works in an enhanced way of getting normal streaks. For instance, when u successfully capture a Commander mouse upon ur streak 5, u NOT ONLY cause 5 retreats for the mice in ur streak, but as well as 5 retreats for all the OTHER breeds in ur CURRENT wave. If u r in wave 3, meaning tht u have 6 breeds in total now, so u will cause a sum of 30 mice to retreat in this case. There r commander charms to be used to manually attract it, but only given after u settle one wave (wave 1-3), and also from Warmonger mouse. oh ya, the other mouse is Caravan, and it works in the opposite way. It causes reinforcement of MORE mice to ur wave, but only when u FTC it, if u capture then got nothing. However, if u have many friends hunting at FW too, the reinforcement can be avoided, funny oh?
Finally, regarding the ultimate aims for hunting at FW, u r advised to get different trap parts from Warmonger, one at a time only. Similar to tht of ZT, but the different thing here is tht the Warmonger WOULDN'T drop the trap part every time. In total, u need to get 2 Sandblasted Metals, 1 Sphynx Crystal, and 1 Oasis Bead to craft Sandstorm Monstrobot, Sphynx Wrath, and Water Oasis Node Trap, the 3 ultimate traps available in mousehunt so far. The 1st Warmonger u catch will give u a trap part for SURE.
My personal advices, not necessarily for u to follow though, is 1st to get 2 victories ( one victory means completing 4 waves) at FW. Why 2 victories instead of just ONE? 1stly, u need to get enough flameshards to craft a trap ( mentioned later). 2ndly, u need 2 victories as prerequisite for tht trap as well. After tht, u move to Muridae Market, and rebuild cheese shoppe, general store and trapsmith there, and then purchase Sandtail Sentinel ( a MUST, unless u r freaking lucky to get 2 Sandblasted Metals in a row for ur 1st 2 victories to craft Monstrobot. Well, Sei Ji got 3 in a row, shit him. =_=!! ) U may also consider buying Dimensional Chest Trap (Tactical, dont need to buy if u get crystal ady, up to you la...), but it seems to me tht Sandtail Sentinel just works as fine for Tactical mice in FW. Then, if u want, u can travel back to FW and continue farming for ur loots using SS. Or u can start doing ur Crystal Library assignments, but in this case u will have to buy the Dimensional Chest Trap bcoz most assignments r at Furoma and ZT, u shall know why la. Regarding the baits to use in FW, Brie is quite good for wave 1 and 2, but i m a bit kiasu and impatient, so i stick to gouda to maximize the streaks. Gouda is recommended in wave 3, bcoz wave 3 is seriously killing. And, use SB+ wherever possible to maintain ur streaks, like when u ady get streak 5, then use SB+ to get streak 6 to cause retreats. Commander charms will come in handy at this time. oh ya, U can just use Enraged Rhinobot for all the mice in FW, including hydro, tactical and arcane, but less effective la. I did tht bcoz didnt want to use charms ( need simple orbs to craft..) for tactical and hydro mice. U plan urself la.
FW boosts ur golds and points like mad also. Tactical mice r damn rich (5200 in wave 2, and 6000 in wave 3). Regarding the duration of getting one victory, according to my experience and analysis, even if u hunt 24 hours per day non-stop, u still need 5-7 days using ER, or 4-6 days using SS), depending on ur luck. haha, i think u need one week plus. My fastest record is 4 days, bcoz i spent my commander charms like crazy and i was lucky enough to catch the commanders, but i never use super charms la. Don't waste time hunting at Derr Dunes ady.
Enjoy the hunt. :-)
