Pathing is the use of Blocks to lead monsters towards traps or certain towers. It is often seen in THDT/SDT.

It is also a good idea to plant Booby Traps in the path.

The level of the blocks used for pathing will effect the distances which monsters will path (travel) to get to their target. For example, a monster would travel further without destroying the blocks if the blocks were black diamond than if they were wooden.

Pathing can be tested with the Wild Monster Baiter.

According to testing done in a pathing guide, the maximum extra steps a monster will walk (critical length of blocks) instead of breaking through a wall is as follows. Also monsters will walk between walls and non-tower buildings. However, each time they do this it counts as an extra 14 steps for the path when deciding whether to break through the wall.

  • wooden block paths monster by 19 steps OR critical length of 5 blocks

  • black diamond block paths monster by 29 steps OR critical length of 13 blocks

2 layers:

  • wooden blocks paths monster by 36 steps OR critical length of 16 blocks
  • stone blocks paths monster by 46 steps OR critical length of 21 blocks
