Golbin Raid

From Melvor Idle
This page is out of date (v0.18.2).

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

  • 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 (or an Adamant Scimitar if Jerry the Giraffe (pet).svg Jerry the Giraffe has been unlocked), 200 Bronze Arrows, 500 Air, Water, Earth, Fire & Mind Runes, and 10 Shrimp
  • 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.
  • Running or dying in the Raid will reward you with Raid Coins based on what Wave you got up to. You cannot earn Raid Coins until Wave 3 has been cleared.
  • Everyone attacks twice as fast in the Raid.

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]wave[/math] waves cleared is given by: [math]\text{Raid Coins} = \begin{cases} wave * \left \lfloor 2 + \left ( wave * 0.25 \right ) \right \rfloor * \left \lfloor \frac{wave}{15} + 1 \right \rfloor * 3 & \text{if }wave \ge 3 \\ 0 & \text{if }wave \le 2 \end{cases} [/math]

Wave count Raid Coins
5 36
10 108
15 210
20 684
30 1,566
40 3,861
50 8,232
75 22,200
100 54,054
125 110,484
150 174,330
175 281,880
200 426,258

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

Where Skip Cost Reduction is 0.01 multiplied by the number of times the "Reduce Wave Skip Cost" upgrade has been purchased, up to max of 0.5.

Ammo

If Ammo is chosen during the selection phase, 2 random options will be offered, and a option to increase your existing ammo. The quantity of Ammo offered is a random amount between 1 + Raid Shop Multiplier and max quantity, where the offered amount increases with the number of cleared waves and your multiplier that you can increase in the raid shop, by: [math]\text{Ammo Max} = ((wave * 25)* RaidShopMultiplier)+1[/math]

Runes

If Runes is chosen during the selection phase, 2 random options will be offered, and a option to increase your existing ammo. The quantity of Runes offered is a random amount between 10 + Raid Shop Multiplier and max quantity, where the offered amount increases with the number of cleared waves and your multiplier that you can increase in the raid shop, by: [math]\text{Runes Max} = ((wave * 25)* RaidShopMultiplier)+10[/math]

Food

If Food is chosen during the selection phase, 3 random options will be offered. The quantity of Food offered is a random amount between 1 + Raid Shop Multiplier and max quantity, where the offered amount increases with the number of cleared waves, by: [math]\text{Food Max} = (wave*12-wave)+wave+RaidShopMultiplier[/math]
