Gumballs & Dungeons Wikia

Backtracking is the act of using an item, a maze mechanic or some other means to go back to a floor you have already visited. This act allows you to clear the floors again, allowing you to gain more EP, equipment, scrolls and maze items without raising the difficulty. This effectively helps you go deeper in your maze run.

Backtracking is necessary for certain DP quests and for some Hidden Gumballs.

The most common source of backtrack is via the Portal of Earth scroll. You can get at most 2 scrolls, 1 from going through the maze, and 1 from learning the Planar Prophet title. All the other sources of backtracking are also limited, most of them being limited to 1x per run.
