Description


A mechanism is a required component of a ghost trap, along with a magic circle and bait.

Attributes


Like magic circles, a mechanism has two primary attributes to consider:

  • Raw power: The strength of your trap. In order to trap a ghost your power must be higher than the ghost's scare factor. Be aware that there will be random effects when trying to catch a ghost (we call that "luck and chance").
  • Mystic power: Mystic power represents the chance to trap a ghost regardless of its scare factor. Some ghosts can only be caught with a high mystic power. Other ghosts are resistant to mystic power, and can not be caught with a high-mystic power set-up.

Your mechanism can contribute either raw power or mystic power or both to your trap. Your mechanism may also have other stats on it. There are also contracts that work with different types of mechanisms.

You get new mechanisms either by buying one from the Q-section or building one from components collected in the game.

Mystic resistance

Some ghosts are immune to mystic power. This means that they can only be caught with a high raw power setup or a setup with sufficient willpower to overcome the mystic resistance.

Brute force may also help you trap mystic-resistant ghosts.

Acquiring mechanisms


Mechanism automatically supplied to new agents

The Suck-o-matic 3000 trap mechanism is automatically supplied to new agents at no cost when they join "Ghost Trappers".

Purchased mechanisms


All of the mechanisms can do well for you, depending on what magic circle, contract, camera, accessories, and companion you pair them with, where you hunt with them, and what bait you use.

More information about each mechanism is available through its link. On each mechanism's page you will find full information about the mechanism, including what it looks like, what its statistics are when combined with various contracts, its refund value, etc.

Refund values

The mechanisms you purchase can be refunded for the following prices:

  • Mechanisms purchased from locations in Dumfries and Galloway can be refunded at 50% of their then-current purchase price.
  • Mechanisms purchased from locations in Borders can be refunded at 30% of their then-current purchase price.

Players who have sold a mechanism back to the Q-section can re-purchase it again later, if necessary, at its then-current price.

Assembled mechanisms

Some mechanisms must be assembled from blueprints and other item parts found in the game. This table includes the required item parts where appropriate. You must reach particular XP levels to assemble each mechanism, even if you have all the required blueprints before you reach that level of XP.

Purchase decisions

Review all of a mechanism's statistics carefully, including the magic circle you'll pair with it, along with possible contract and companion combinations before making any purchase decisions.

* Note: Although the suck-o-matic 9000 has a stated XP requirement of 2,600,000, the actual requirement is 4,000,000, because of where the mechanism must be assembled.

History


  • 2 January 2010: Agents of S.C.O.T.C.H. were given the opportunity to select two of three new mechanisms as a present from the developers in honor of Ghost Trappers' first anniversary.
  • 5 March 2010: XP requirements for many mechanisms have been updated in preparation for the opening of region 4 Lothian.
  • 31 March 2010: Mechanisms originally gifted during CW1 became available for sale at S.C.O.T.C.H. HQ.
