Mechanics

This map contains 4 floors with 6 waves of monster spawning per floor. The initial wave consists of 35 monsters and increases by 2 monsters per wave up to a possible maximum of 83 monsters on wave 25. The map is guaranteed to drop at least one unique item,[1] regardless of item level.[2]

The Monster types of each wave are randomly picked from a pre-defined list of wave-types; The final wave is the exception to this, where Infector of Dreams is accompanied by monster types that can only appear during the final wave. While the monster level stays the same, magic and rare monsters increase with every wave. Additionally, at the end of every wave a rare Necromancer[3] spawns.

Several flavour/hint messages appear in the chat window during the map:

  • When a new wave begins: "The darkness looms forebodingly..."
  • When the current room has been fully cleared: "The room grows still and quiet..."
  • When the last room has been fully cleared: "The oppressive atmosphere slowly dissipates..."
