The rat pole is an item that players can obtain during the Ratcatchers quest. They can also use it in the Rat Pits minigame. They can wield the pole as a weapon. Players who lose their rat pole can obtain a new empty one by talking to Phingspet and Grimesquit.
Players can attach up to six dead rats to the pole. To attach a rat, the player must first be wielding the pole, and not just have it in their inventory. The player must use their cat to catch rats. When the cat catches one, the player has the option to put the rat on the pole or just not do anything. An adult cat or wily cat is recommended for this, since they have a much better success rate. The rat pole is not recommended as a weapon due to its low stats.
