Numen: Contest of Heroes - Minotaur Labyrinth Guide

Written by lovinglife139   /   Updated: April 12, 2021    


A short guide with directions on how to get through the labyrinth maze and to the campfire to beat the minotaur for the "Blood of the Minotaur" quest.

Guide to Minotaur Labyrinth



Prepare



Prepare for Battle!

Before you go through this maze of a map and attempt to fight the minotaur, make sure you are leveled for the fight. You will have to maneuver through the labyrinth before and after the battle. The minotaur is level 58, so it is recommended you are at lEast that level with really good gear before you begin.

First things first: as soon as you enter the labyrinth, there is a pillar directly ahead of you with some pebbles and a torch on the ground ahead of it. Pick up the torch. This is needed to see to follow directions through the labyrinth, and I missed it at first and ended up stumbling around in the dark for an hour.



Above is a screenshot of the entrance you just walked through. This is the brightest the labyrinth gets without the torch; the rest is pitch blackness.



Above is a screenshot of the pillar right inside the entrance where you need to pick up the torch. Once you have the torch, equip it in your weapon slot. It does not expire, nor are there any enemies before the minotaur in the labyrinth for you to worry about switching weapons in order to fight, so you are now ready to start your lengthy trek through the maze.

Labyrinth Directions to Minotaur



Directions to Minotaur from Entrance

There is no map in the labyrinth. However, you still have your compass at the top center of the screen. I will use North, East, South, and West for these directions, which you can follow on the compass. The labyrinth has "blocks" that I will also refer to. Each block is separated by pillars in the center and separation panels on the walls. See the screenshot below. Each stretch of floor/walls between these pillars/panels is one block for the purposes of this guide. You may see forks in the road, but as long as you follow these directions exactly, you will find the minotaur.

  • Turn East and walk until you hit the wall.

Labyrinth Directions to Exit from Minotaur



After the Battle

Phew! Congratulations if you beat the minotaur! If you're having trouble, I highly suggest leaving (using these directions, of course), and leveling up on Sykros, the Amazonian island (you can talk to the boatman to get there), and coming back.

Now, all that is left is to get out of this confusing place!
