I've done this maze about three times now, but this is the only time I've mapped it, so I'm not sure it's the same each time, but my guess is that it is. Here is my hand-drawn map:

  • Huh, cool. I did this maze one, but after the first time, whenever I get this challenge, I just turn around and leave. I just don't have the patience for it. I don't think I'll be using this map, but I can imagine it'd be helpful if I planned on doing the maze again. :lol:

    I hope it's ok if I give you a huge e-hug for the enormous wave of nostalgia you just caused me to feel & for the huge goofy grin this put on my face. I just love the fact someone went old school because of this game.

    *HUG*

  • I haven't played in a month or so, is this maze new? Which area does it spawn in? Never gotten it before.

    Done this maze once.. second time - not even tried to do it ... :)

    Thanks for this map.

    Have a nice day.

    I also went old school for this challenge. Only ever seen it once. Then I realized that you can leave breadcrumbs by dropping cheap items like potions / fish on the ground. That way the floor never sinks into the water.

    I just only ever make right turns there... since the paths never loop back to themselves that works fine to find everything.

    Nice work! I just overlaid your map on top of the actual level and it's definitely accurate, and surprisingly close to scale considering it wasn't drawn on graph paper. Now the only problem is there are four different maze layouts ( two major layouts, each with two minor variations ), so you have three more maps to draw! ;)

    Uh, what? I've done this at least 8-9 times already and its always the same layout - I've basically memorised the map without drawing it (Gods, was it a pain the first several times ... :D ) and I'm certain its always the same for me. Is this luck or ... ?

    That being said - I don't think I recognize the map that foolsama has drone ... O.o

    sometimes the RNG randomizer doesn't randomize .. we're finding with specific mod affixes that SOME players can't reroll out of them, this could effect things like random chunks as well, im sure.

    Its truly odd. I can reroll through the affixes constantly, but another player is completely stuck with the ones they have with no way out of them.

    MIGHT be something with why you have had the same map design 8 or 9 times.. dunno

    Interesting. I've only ever gotten the maze 2 times, but both were like the map that he drew XD

  • Well, I'm going through New Game + right now, and the maze is different =/ I'm dropping breadcumbs, but it's not working as good as the map does... Spent an hour last night drawing.. may have to do it again hah.
  • Alright, here's a second map. This one seems a bit rougher on the average explorer than the last one, but that may just be me. I started with the assuption that the islands would be in the same spot - they're not, quite, so forgive the island redraws! the maze itself will provide the correct pathways.

    BTW, this maze is the phase beast challenge from the Temple Steps.

    Thumbs up for hand drawn map. This gameplay element should have its way back in the genre, something like it was done in Etrian Odyssey 4.

  • Hmmm. Last time I got this phase challenge the maps didn't seem to match. Ugh.

    Thank you!

    I actually ran into this maze for the first ever on my NG+ last night!

    And yeah, very much reminiscent of drawing the maps in Etrian Odyssey 3 :P
