Golbin Raid

From Melvor Idle
This page is up to date (v0.21).

Golbin Raid is the first permanent minigame added to Melvor Idle. It is intended to be a fun distraction for those who want to take a break from the grind, offering unique rewards exclusive to the minigame.

The minigame is specifically designed to be fair for everyone, at any level of the game, as such there is no advantage to having high level stats or items.

How to Play

  • Defeat infinite waves of Golbins, progressing in difficulty and Combat Level each wave
  • You start at Level 1 Combat Skill Levels (Hitpoints Level 10) which increases by 1 at the end of each wave
  • Start with only a Bronze Scimitar (item).svg Bronze Scimitar (or an Adamant Scimitar (item).svg Adamant Scimitar if Jerry the Giraffe (pet).svg Jerry the Giraffe has been unlocked), 200 Bronze Arrows (item).svg Bronze Arrows, 500 Air Rune (item).svg Air Rune, 500 Water Rune (item).svg Water Rune, 500 Earth Rune (item).svg Earth Rune, 500 Fire Rune (item).svg Fire Rune, 500 Mind Rune (item).svg Mind Rune, and 10 Shrimp (item).svg Shrimp

  • Get as far as you can with the best build possible

Shop

The Golbin Raid minigame has its own shop, from which the player can purchase various upgrades in exchange for Raid Coins. All purchases made within this shop will only impact the minigame, and will have no effect on other areas of the game.

Raid Coins

The number of Raid Coins earned increases with the number of cleared waves. The amount of coins earned for a raid with [math]\text{wave}[/math] waves cleared is given by: [math]\text{Raid Coins} = \begin{cases} 3 \times \text{wave} \times \left \lfloor 2 + \frac{\text{wave}}{4} \right \rfloor \times \left \lfloor 1 + \frac{\text{wave}}{15} \right \rfloor & \text{if wave} \ge 3 \\ 0 & \text{if wave} \le 2 \end{cases} [/math]

Waves Cleared Raid Coins
5 45
10 120
15 450
20 840
30 2,430
40 4,320
50 8,400
75 27,000
100 56,700
125 111,375
150 193,050
175 283,500
200 436,800

The cost of skipping waves also increases with the number of waves, where the cost of skipping wave number [math]\text{wave}[/math] is given by: [math]\text{Skip Cost} = \left \lfloor 100 \times \left ( \text{wave} + 1 \right ) \times \left ( 1 - \text{Skip Cost Reduction} \right ) \right \rfloor[/math]

Where [math]\text{Skip Cost Reduction}[/math] is 0.01 multiplied by the number of times the "Reduce Wave Skip Cost" upgrade has been purchased, up to a maximum of 0.5.

Ammo

If Ammo is chosen during the selection phase, two random options will be offered alongside an option to increase your existing ammo. The quantity of Ammo offered increases with the number of cleared waves, can be increased by purchasing the Ammo Gatherer upgrade within the raid shop, and is a random amount between [math]1[/math] and the maximum quantity:

[math]\text{Ammo Max} = 25 \times \text{wave} \times \left ( 1 + \text{Raid Shop Multiplier} \right )[/math]

Where [math]\text{Raid Shop Multiplier}[/math] has an initial value of 0, increasing by 0.05 for each time the Ammo Gatherer upgrade has been purchased.

Runes

If Runes is chosen during the selection phase, two random options will be offered, and a option to increase your existing ammo. The quantity of Runes offered increases with the number of cleared waves, can be increased by purchasing the Rune Pouch upgrade within the raid shop, and is a random amount between [math]10[/math] and the maximum quantity:

[math]\text{Runes Max} = 25 \times \text{wave} \times \left ( 1 + \text{Raid Shop Multiplier} \right ) + 9[/math]

Where [math]\text{Raid Shop Multiplier}[/math] has an initial value of 0, increasing by 0.05 for each time the Rune Pouch upgrade has been purchased.

Food

If Food is chosen during the selection phase, three random options will be offered. The quantity of Food offered increases with the number of cleared waves, can be increased by purchasing the Food Bonus upgrade within the raid shop, and is a random amount between [math]\text{wave} + \text{Raid Shop Bonus}[/math] and the maximum quantity:

[math]\text{Food Max} = 12 \times \text{wave} + \text{Raid Shop Bonus} - 1[/math]

Where [math]\text{Raid Shop Bonus}[/math] has an initial value of 0, increasing by 5 for each time the Food Bonus upgrade has been purchased.
