Understanding Traps

At the time of writing this guide, you will only be able to use and setup one single trap in any given location. You will have to place a trap and place suitable baits to catch the monsters that they attract to. You will have different kinds of traps and higher level traps can catch higher level monsters in the game.

Different monsters in the game may appear at different world of the map. You will need to learn how to use the Almanac to be able to catch all of the monsters in the game. However, some of the monsters are currently not available as the developers are still releasing new contents.

You should gather a few baits and place them all into the trap at the same time. Your Here be Monsters traps will continuously trap the monsters for you without having to check it every 15 minutes. The trap will continue to trap new monsters until it has run out of the baits.

Beginner’s Trappers Tips

With the trap system, there are a couple reminders that you will need to know about your traps.

Using Traps as Teleport landmarks
If you have traveled far to any fishing or mining locations, one good way to “remember” these locations is by placing a trap in them. Remember to place a bait too so that you traps would be active in Here Be Monsters. By click on the map and traveling to your trap locations, you can travel to and from that specific locations without using any energy.

Be Aware of Picking Up Traps Remotely
Be very careful when you decide to pick up the traps that you have laid remotely. This option is available next to the teleport button. By doing so, you will lose any bait or past monsters that you have caught before. However,

Getting Second Traps
At the time of writing, you will only be able to use one trap in the game. However, we expect future updates to let you use two different traps. You will most likely have to purchase the secondary traps using the real cash banknotes.
