Path to start

Devourer Burrow is a Guild Race where members transform into a devourer and must pass through Spider Nest Cavern while dealing with traps, bats, spiders, and oozes. This race deals heavily in traps, but gives the racer tools such as feign death and a burrow skill. Escorts can be very useful to clear out the enemies, but racers will have to deal with the traps on their own.

  • Take your time when you're not in danger. Despite the name, racing quickly along the course is a sure way to stumble upon multiple traps and die quickly, forcing you to start over.
  • Use the Search skill (#1) continuously, press Ctrl + Right Click to turn it into an autoattack. Traps are your main enemy along the course, and hitting two traps in a row will quickly cause you to go back to the beginning. Waiting a couple seconds for it to come off cooldown, in a safe location, is usually preferable to blindly wandering into a spike trap.
  • Escorts can easily keep the paths clear of mobs for racers, making them very useful for this race.
  • The burrow skill allows you to move underground while hidden.
