The vine cage is a bio type mechanism.


You must have at least 80,000 XP to be able to assemble and use the vine cage mechanism.


You must have collected the blueprint pieces vine cage 1/2 and vine cage 2/2 to be able to assemble the vine cage.

The vine cage can not be sold, traded, or given to other players. It is not eligible for a refund at any time. Before you assemble the blueprints to create the vine cage, you are free to sell or trade those pieces through the trading post or in the forums.

Efficiency (bait usage)

The vine cage mechanism is a burner that uses one additional bottle of bait for each hunt.

You can combine the vine cage mechanism with other burners or anti-burners to adjust the number of bottles you will use each hunt.

Burner use and strategy

Dealing with the burner aspect of the vine cage mechanism is a perfect example of the kinds of choices and trade-offs you must make throughout Virtual Scotland.

There is no correct answer — there is simply the choice that benefits your current goals the most (or the choice that minimizes the amount of pain you feel watching bait disappear). It's all a matter of taste and your current goals.

Many people prefer to use cheaper bait with the vine cage mechanism. They tend to see burner components as an occasional necessary evil.

Others will use Nessy's Golden Reserve or mocktails with the vine cage mechanism in their setup, because they are trying to capture a ghost that requires more raw power, more mystic power, or more something to catch than is otherwise available. Again, this is purely a matter of taste.

Only you know what is most important to you in Ghost Trappers right now, and that is probably the most important factor to consider to help you determine the best strategy for your own use of the vine cage mechanism.
