A race is starting soon! is the preparation phase for the mount race event that occurs in the Mad King's Labyrinth.


  • Speak with the race organizer to participate in the upcoming race.
  • Make sure to be in the starting area when the race begins to prevent being disqualified.
  • The race will begin in: 2:00.[verification requested]


The race will begin in the center of the labyrinth facing north, and will move in a counter-clockwise pattern towards the western entrance, where it will go into the center to the southern entrance, and loop around the southwest corner counter-clockwise again. From there the race will move along the whole labyrinth in a counter-clockwise direction until returning to the northern entrance of the center where the race ends.

Due to the largely flat pathing, Jackal and Raptor mounts are best. Due to the high number of foes, however, Jackal or trained Adroit Evasion is highly useful. Sharp turns make the Jackal slightly more beneficial if you know how to control the jackal's teleporting movement ability.




  • Players that have successfully registered for the race will have the Registered effect.
  • 1 minute before the race begins, text will appear on the screen of those who signed up saying: Be in the starting area when the race begins to qualify.
  • The race is on a 15 minute timer, and lasts for about 8 minutes.
