Halloween Event Maze Map

This is a special report that will be updated each day.  I want to give a special shout out to Holak for her detailed work putting it together.

This week, and half of next week, there is a special event that requires characters to complete a maze within the mountain on Mallorca. If you successfully complete it, the event awards you 400 candy. Holak, working alongside me, found out that the maze appears to change on a daily basis and thought it would be fun to map it. As a result, she has taken it upon herself to post an updated map of the maze each day until the event ends. We will be updating this post each day with the latest version of the maze in case others are stuck. Make sure you are checking the date on the map before using this however, as we won’t be posting it first thing in each morning.

As a side note, our group is thoroughly enjoying the new update. The maze brought in a new level of fun for us as we see who can map the entire thing first. This is a welcome change from our usual task of just doing daily price updates. I’m looking forward to seeing more events like these going forward.

Quick Tips

If you are really struggling with this event, here are some recommendations to hopefully make it easier for you. You can complete the maze unguided in less than 5 minutes using one of these two methods:

  • The Orientation Method: Keep your camera pointed in one direction or in a top down view looking the same direction the entire time you run through the maze. This is a good method if you have a way to draw out your path while you do the event.
  • The Snake Method: The snake method is when you use one of the walls as orientation rather than a direction. The most common way is to follow one of the walls, never leaving it, until you reach your end point. In the first two mazes, following the right wall will complete the maze in about 4 minutes.

Additional Tips:

  • The beginning and end of the maze have different colored ground. The “grid” on the map starts when the ground color changes, not in the one square hallways leading to it.
  • Avoid backtracking aimlessly. If you are hopelessly lost, consider resetting instead. Otherwise you risk going in circles endlessly.
  • If you are use pen and paper to chart your path, use the orientation method. Spinning the camera may cause you to lose orientation.
  • The maps appear to be in an 11 x 22 grid.
  • If you lose your way, you can put yourself against a wall and use the snake method. A maze always has one beginning and one end point. That means if you follow the same wall and never leave it, you will eventually find those two points.
  • If a maze is symmetrical, you can flip the part of the map you know around, and effectively go in reverse towards your entrance. In addition, symmetrical maps tend to have only one “connection” point where you can cross from one side to the other.
  • Symmetry can be horizontal and/or vertical.
