Description

Although superficially resembling a gigantic mouse, the mechanical mouse is clearly a machine. It moves, about on large wheels set underneath the dome-like metallic body that emits constant machine sounds.

In Depth

Notes

  • WARNING! Special materials introduced at the Drathrok's Duskruin 422‎ event are needed to effectively fight these creatures.
  • These creatures flex to the skill of the character they first "fixate" on.
  • As of May 29th, 2017 brawling does not work with giant mechanical mice.
- Neither brawling maneuvers nor parrying with a parry stick teaches brawling - learning will hit (1/34) dabbling only.
- Brawling gear made of required special material (just like brawling without such) does no damage. At best it will scuff the mice's finish.
- Although special material parry sticks are not completely ignored (like non-special material sticks), they are not as effective at parrying as they should be. A hand held weapon (regardless of the weapon's balance) is more successful.
  • The giant mechanical mice hunting ground can be found down the narrow trail on the Northern Trade Route, SW, S, S, SE from the forest path leading to Faenrae Reavers.

Special Attacks

Giant mechanical mice will ignore and bypass attempts to block and/or parry with equipment (shields, weapons, or parry sticks) not made from haledroth, fulginode, crystal-bone, or finivire.

  • Items must be atleast 67% special material (see discussion).
  • Armor need not be made of special material [Learning is fine. Protection needs more evaluation].

Recall Knowledge

A giant mechanical mouse appears to be held together with mechanical though tenuous joints, powered with steam, and given a rudimentary intelligence through some sort of ancient magic.
