Long ago and far away when Ghost Trappers was young, keeping track of the ghosts was pretty easy.
There were midnight ghosts and regular ghosts. That was it.
Finding and sorting the ghosts
Since those early days, we continue to find different ways to group and sort the ghosts.
- For the best overall list, check the all ghosts list, which will let you find and sort ghosts by their ghost types, or by the regions or sub-locations where they are found. Ghosts that occur in more than one location in a region will appear multiple times in the list so that they can sort into the correct locations.
- There are now 6 regions, 28 regular locations, 1 'normal nightmare mode location, 11 normal raiding locations, 5 "normal" special event locations, 1 special event location for raids, 1 nightmare mode special event location, and 1 special event location for the celebration week special event only. You can also find all the ghosts for a particular location by clicking on the location name on any other page, or by typing the location name into the Search box in the left-hand sidebar.
- Many ghosts fall into more than one category and therefore are listed on more than one of the category pages.
Information about ghosts
Each ghost has a "scare factor" that tells you how difficult it will be to catch that ghost in the location where it is first introduced. (The strongest ghosts in one location often become the weakest ghosts in the next location.)
Each ghost has a rarity indicator that indicates (kinda) how difficult or easy it is to attract it within the context of its own location. Each location page in the wiki allows you to sort the ghosts in that location by rarity — from most common to least common or least common to most.
Because the rarity indicators are words, the wiki attempts to apply numerical weighting to those words to enable the sorting.
Each ghost has a risk factor that tells you whether the ghost is likely to steal bait, money, or XP if you fail to catch it.
