Golbin Raid is the first permanent minigame added to Melvor Idle. It will be built and expanded upon to create a fun distraction for those who want to take a break from the grind. This gamemode offers unique rewards exclusive to the minigame.
This minigame is specifically designed to be fair for everyone, at any level of the game. There is no advantage to having high level stats or items in this.
How to Play

- You start at Level 1 Combat Skill Levels (Hitpoints Level 10) which increases by 1 at the end of each wave.

- At the end of each wave you can select the desired item you wish to equip, chosen at random.
- Get as far as you can with the best build possible.
