Apprentice at the Harbour
Townsend Duong (Stanford) replied to Bok's post on Jun 16, 2008 at 1:10 AM Bok, First of all, thanks for remembering me! I see you are hunting in the Meadow with your Mary/Stone setup. The problem with the Meadow is that it is supposed to be full of mostly White/Grey/Brown mice. Since Demi and I never spent much time in the Meadow, we're not first-hand experts on it. Until you reach Apprentice level, you will only be allowed to travel to Town and the Meadow. When you get to Apprentice level, the game will allow you to go to the Harbour. The Mary O'Nette is probably too weak to do well in the Harbour now. You should probably stay in Town until you can buy the Trebuchet or Rocketine. There is a good variety of mice in Town, and you will probably catch a better mix. Since the Harbour has become so risky, many hunters are now choosing to hunt in Town until they get their Swiss Army trap. If you are going to be in Town, you should be able to use a mix of Marble and Swiss cheese. In the Meadow, you should probably use Marble only because the mice are so low value as you realized. However, as I am writing this, I am running a giveaway contest for hunters in the Meadow of all levels (but mostly Novice hunters will take part). It's another opportunity for you to earn some extra gold if you want to stay in the Meadow and hunt White mice.
