— Adventure objective

The Ley-Line Run is an adventure in Ogre Lane. Players must navigate through the checkpoints as a spark to reach the end.

Getting there[edit]

Run west down Ogre Lane from Waypoint (map icon).png Ley-Line Confluence Waypoint, then use the bouncing mushroom at Ley Line Node up to the start of the adventure.

Alternatively, if you have Nuhoch Wallows unlocked, you can run southwest from Waypoint (map icon).png Ogre Camp Waypoint and use the Nuhoch Wallow to reach the bouncing mushroom at the Ley Line Node.


  • Checkpoints Crossed: x/5
  • Bronze Goal: 2:00
  • Silver Goal: 1:30
  • Gold Goal: 0.45
  • Time Limit: 2:00


During the adventure, the player is transformed into a Spark and has their skill bar replaced with 3 new skills. Each skill may be used once before disappearing from the skill bar, but will reappear upon reaching checkpoints and interacting with golden markings on the ground.

  • Power Surge causes the player to dash forward in a straight line. Dashing into glowing orbs along the path of the adventure, such as the one on the starting platform, will redirect the player to predetermined points.
  • Go with the Flow breaks stun if the player is hit, though for completing the adventure this is usually not required as much as the other two skills.
  • Energy Leap fires a projectile which teleports the player on impact, which allows for covering large gaps. The player will be teleported to the location the projectile hits, which may not be the targeted location if an obstruction is in the way. Unlike normal teleportation skills, like Blink, this does not need a valid path to reach the destination.

Players must use these skills as well as several golden markings on the ground that boost skills and helps players to navigate and reach parts of the course easily.

Interacting repeatedly with the golden markings allows the player to use skills multiple times, albeit with a cooldown[verification requested]

The adventure will end if the timer is up, the player is killed, or by reaching the end.
