Cyclops Mouse

Caught my Cyclops Mouse with an Ambush/Dehy/Swiss. It doesn't appear often. And now it drops the Gnarled Tree Map Piece and opens up the Great Gnarled Tree Location.
I was successful in my hunt! I caught a 5 oz. Cyclops mouse from the Calm Clearing worth 2,796 points and 2,805 gold. The mouse also dropped the following loot: 1 gnarled tree map piece.

Has anyone caught a Cyclops with the Swiss Army Trap? I am only a journeyman and it is the strongest trap I have right now, I have gotten a few nibbles by a cyclops but haven't caught one. I am saving up gold and points. Any suggestions for trap purchases? Force field or Venus Trap? Or something else?

I've been trying to catch this sucker for a week now... I've got both the Zugzwang's Last Move and NVMRC traps, so I'm at 3000+ power, yet the darned thing keeps nibbling and avoiding my trap. What's it take for this rodent? :)

I've caught two so far using the Swiss Army/Explosive/Swiss, and I'm a journeyman. Also two ate some cheese but scuppered off! It's the only one of the "very difficult" mice using my set-up that I've managed to catch...

I've looked it up for you; the swiss army mouse trap with the explosive base has a forty percent chance to catch the cyclops mouse. You will catch approximately 1 per every 200 hunts. To be frank; you're really wasting your time here. As to the NVMRC, you have a 56% chance, and you will catch one approximately every 150 hunts. I know from my cousin's experience that NVMRC is a fine trap to use, but will not work very well in the GGT. If you have it, I suggest the Partybot, or the Ambush traps, due to the fact that they can completely obliterate everything there without too much difficulty.
(As a side note about the GGT, fairies are highly uncommon, I get an attraction about once a week, and are very uncommon to catch as well. My Partybot/Polar combo has a solid 40% chance to catch them, and I'm sorry to admit I've missed 5 consecutive fairies, NVMRC has a decent chance, but is still not very likely to catch them (30% chance). All my information is taken from http://mousehunt.thetoxiczone.com/catch_rates_estimates.html, and I do not take credit, or claim to have found, the information I have given to you unless it was a personal account or my or my family's catching history.

LOL. my cuz just hit the calm clearing as journeyman w/ nvmrc (he he, he's family, and he paid me back in full) Within 5 hours there, he caught two cyclops. I personally caught mine within a day, so I think it's all a matter of luck. GL if you still havn't gotten them.

im a grandmaster who never spent much time in the calm clearing. i just got the Furoma map piece in the mousoleum so i opened up the training grounds and i need a good tactical trap. I'm in the clearing right now trying to kill this little bugger with a NVMRC/Dehy/brie. i just need to get to the tree so i can buy a venus mouse trap and craft it with the sludge for a mutated venus and be effective in the training grounds. ZLM is too expensive. this mouse is a bitch to catch. with my setup at least

@razback611
I had the EXACTLY same problem! Few weeks ago I tried for around 7 days to get the little bugger and I gave up and moved further, than I came to the situation that I must have him because until couple a minutes ago I was in the exactly same position as you so I googled, googled, googled and I found this:
http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=10337532241&topic=65181
And I did what this guy said:
"Count-Chris Porter
My set up WAS ZZLM/Polar/Swiss

CHANGED TO BRIE! 5 Horns Later and Shazam!"
My set wasn't exactly as his, mine was swiss/explosive/swiss and just as I changed to Brie the little bugger came, so try this and good luck.

Any luck with Candy Cane Base and Gift Wrap?

jaden darl naval said...

http://furoma.com/catch_rate_estimates.php .. try this. it will test your trap and your catch rates. :)

The mice is challenging when you have an NVRMC trap and a jade base plus brie chesse and its very easy with a digby drill bot. I cuaght the mice at nigth when I was sleeping good luck!
