Ronza (January 2012)

Ronza the Traveling Merchant usually comes once a year on a blimp and brings limited edition traps and bases that usually have high luck. Last year, she even brought with her a charm maker known as Mustachio. This was how charms were introduced into the game.

Mousehunt wiki says: “Ronza stops in from time to time, bringing MouseHunters new and fancy trap components from other parts of the world. Little is known about her origins, and she never stays very long. The King allows Ronza to make port near the castle, to sell her goods. Perhaps the more she visits, the more we will find out about her…”

Ronza has visited many times in the past, but more recently she began coming once a year. This year (2012) she should come sometime in January, maybe next week!

I would at least have 3 million gold if you want to buy everything she offers, but having more gold always helps.


Quick run down of her stuff

USE: Catch Rate Estimator and Horn Tracker

Jade Base: Nothing special – you will need it to get the upgrade.

Dragon Jade Base

Dragon Jade Base: GET IT! This is one of the best bases in Mousehunt, even rivaling the Magma Base. Note: You will need to have OBTAINED a Dragon Seal from the Year of the Dragon event. You need not to have one physically with you in your inventory.

Chrome Tacky Glue

Chrome Tacky Glue Trap: This is one of those traps that’s quite interesting/amusing (Bacon Base last).  More interesting is the fact that it has 20 luck, and when paired with a powerful base, becomes quite a strong trap for beginners or middle ranked players. The 150 power is laughable, but the luck and 30% raw attraction it provides makes it a nice addition to any hunter’s inventory. Attraction is especially useful when hunting for rare or event mice.

Chrome Rhinobot

Chrome Rhinobot: This is considered by some, the second best physical trap in the game (stats comparable to the Sandtail Sentinel). If you have the gold, get it! This trap rivals the Sandtail Sentinel and the point requirement is 1million points- meaning you will need no other physical trap other than an upgrade to the Sandstorm Monstrobot after this purchase. Although it is Ronza’s most expensive trap up to date, it is most definitely worth it.

Warpath Thrasher

Warpath Thrasher: In truth this is not really good, You may think 9000 power and 30 at the beginning of each wave is good ( Why couldn’t it have been 9001!), but the power and luck decreases drastically and you won’t even be done with half a wave at the Fiery Warpath, failing to the Chrome Rhinobot which will be better in the end.

Mining Charm- Unless you want to stay in Town of Digby for a long time, this charm has no practicability. It may help increase the attraction rate of mice such as the Big Bad Burrows or the Nugget mouse.

Tarnished Charms- Buy as many as you can –  this is cheaper than the Super Luck Charm and polishing them yield Chrome Charms (+5 luck and 3% power). Chrome Charms are limited edition for now and will be worth a whole lot of gold when Ronza leaves and demand rises. If you need gold, buy lots of tarnished charms, and convert them to Chrome charms by arming them with your trap and successfully catching any mouse. Then, sit back and watch the prices on the marketplace rise.

    IMO the second best physical trap in the game is Sandtail Sentinel, not Chrome Rhinobot. Chrome Rhinobot has 2 more luck but Sandtail Sentinel has 800 more power and, 7% more power bonus, and 10% more attraction bonus..

      Luck is preferred over power, and the 2 luck makes a huge difference. Of course, catch rates are very similar and both the Sandtail Sentinel and Chrome Rhinobot can be considered in the second best tier below the Sandstorm Monstrobot.

    27 luck and 25 luck may have a diff of 2 but it’s more than the diff of two between 0 and 2
