Main / Meditating


The Path of Insanity is one of the paths you can join by meditating. Some followers have admitted to seeing strange hallucinations, or have been seen to interact with nothing there. Followers may get the event message "You feel strange and out of time." off and on, regardless of meditation level and rank. It is unknown whether this is triggered by something or completely random.

Path of Insanity tiles

Insanity path tiles are found inside mines, on any tile more than 2 tiles away from any ore veins or cave exits. Note that reinforcements and rock salt do not count as "ore" and will not block Insanity tiles from appearing.

After completing a meditation on a path of insanity tile the usual message of "This is indeed a special place" will not appear. Due to this you may need to try moving to different tiles and repeatedly meditating until you get a path question in order to advance. Certain Path of Insanity-specific "trance" messages may also appear when beginning to meditate, making it clearer that the tile is special.
