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. Backtracking is necessary for certain DP quests. As backtracking allows you to garner more resources that allows you to go deeper in your maze run, the sources of backtracking are usually limited.

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.
