## Maze map upside down[edit source]

Hey I don't know if anyone noticed but the maze map is upside down and doesn't even indicate north. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 207.155.78.226 (talk) on 00:22, 5 March 2015 (UTC).

## Theoretical maximum score?[edit source]

Is anyone interested in determining the theoretical maximum score (%) obtainable for each path?

We would need to know:

- The least number of tiles needed to run across in order to complete the path for each of the four paths (from the spawn point to the center object).
- The number of doors for each path.
- The amount of time (ticks) it takes to run over each tile
- The amount of time (ticks) it takes to open and pass through each door.
- The amount of time (ticks) it takes for each percentage to drop of the score.

Then it's simply using this formula: y=100-([a*b+c*d]/e)

Where...

y = theoretical maximum score (%)

a = number of tiles on the path

b = amount of time (ticks) it takes to run over each tile

c = number of doors

d = amount of time (ticks) it takes to open and pass through a door

e = amount of time (ticks) it takes for each 1% drop in score

Feel free to fill in the blanks below as you test:

Path (color from map) | Number of tiles | Number of doors | Theoretical maximum score % |
---|---|---|---|

Blue | |||

Green | |||

Cyan | |||

Purple |

Action | Time (in ticks) |
---|---|

Running over tile | 0.5 ticks (2 squares per tick) |

Opening and running through wall door | |

Score percentage dropping by 1% |

## April 2018 Prize nerf[edit source]

The prizes have been nerfed recently. I completed two mazes today, one at 75% and the other at 76%.

For the first I received 11 nature runes, 2137 coins and some death runes (118?).

For the second I received 240 chaos runes, 722 iron arrows and some death runes (120?).

(Not sure about the number of death runes since I didn't take note of the number after the first one. I just know I got 238 total from the two.)

Could someone extrapolate from this data and update the Rewards section? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bellamybug (talk) on 02:58, 15 April 2018 (UTC).

- I can back this up. I had 72% potential at the end and I got 8 nature runes, 9 mithril ore, and an indeterminate number of coins. I definitely should have had more based on the article's current info on rewards potential. --Ioun (talk) 11:20, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

## Maze rewards always seem to be multiples of each other[edit source]

In my experience, the reward amounts have always been related to each other by some ratio. For example, receiving 1332 Iron arrows, 1998 Feathers and 3996 Coins.

My theory is that a reward potential is generated (based on total and completion percentage?), and then divided based on each item received.

Reward | Multiplier |
---|---|

Coins | 1 |

Feathers | 1/2 |

Iron arrows | 1/3 |

Chaos rune | 1/9 |

Steel arrows | 1/12 |

Death rune | 1/18 |

Coal | 1/45 |

Nature rune | ~1/182??? |

Mithril ore | ~1/166??? |

... | ? |

Reward 1 | Reward 2 | Reward 3 | Total potential | Completion percentage | Total level |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Coins, 3996 | Iron arrow, 1332 | Feathers, 1998 | 11988 | ? | ~1765 |

Coins, 4410 | Coal, 98 | Coal, 98 | 13230 | ? | ~1765 |

Iron arrow, 1470 | Chaos Runes, 490 | Death runes, 245 | 13230 | ? | ~1765 |

Chaos runes, 424 | Chaos runes, 424 | Steel arrows, 318 | 11448 | ? | ~1765 |

Iron arrow, 1335 | Coal, 89 | Nature runes, 22 | 12015 | ? | ~1765 |

Chaos runes, 445 | Chaos runes, 445 | Mithril ore, 24 | 12015 | ~69% | 1770 |

Coins, 4430 | Coal, 98 | Mithril ore, 27 | 13290 | ~75% | 1772 |
