When soloing, is it worth staying in a trap doored maze?

I know the monsters give slightly more exp, but take 5x longer to kill. The drops don't seem to be worth it for thevtime invested.

Is there a hidden magic luck bonus at least or is it just harder monsters and slightly more xp per monster?

I'd reroll the cata unless you have insane gear

I always reroll trapdoors, never found it worth it to explore there. Don’t see an increase of drops and the monsters so much harder to kill

I last tested "Events" with a game that I had already created prior to the the (at the time) current event... I fell in a Trap door (testing), and carried on (hey, I have the gear to continue without hardship)... I fell in another Trap Door, the within 5 more spaces another trap door... hmm, it was not worth testing at this point... so I left my game that I had created and made a new one... basically as others have stated... make a new game when you fall in a Trap Door unless you can just kill the monster(s) spawn in the same amount of time you kill normally... how to explain this:

If you can kill monsters in 5 actions (attacks) when killing monster spawn in a regular created game AND also kill monsters in 5 actions (attacks) when you fall in the Trap Door... then stay there in the Trap Door for better drop quality etc... now, you may fall into another Trap Door... can you still kill a monster spawn in 5 actions? or does it take 15 actions to kill it? ... now it is up to YOU to decide how you want to continue.

Basically... it will only depend on YOU and YOUR current item(s) whether you continue in a Trap Door. Oh... with my last testing... falling into a third TD... I gave up because I could not resolve or get enough information to conclude my testing... so hey, now here I am playing in the 3rd event that is more pleasant to the previous one.

More drops? Nope
Better drops? Maybe

Found a 47 dex robe down 2 tds and there was a notable 19x ee dagger found 2 years back.

Whether or not we would have found these anyway without being down tds we will never know.

I was part of the group that found that 198 dagger when down a bunch of TDs (was Darkhunter, Xchrispy, and I) , however.... with that said I personally reroll cata these days when I encounter a TD as in all honesty I've found it more of a hindrance than a plus to be down TDs.

I've solod trap doors and I pretend they don't exist unless I double TD.
Tbh i haven't seen any significant drop increase or at least noticed it. So sometimes I like to gamble and try. But other times it's just cost effective and a waste of time.

During TD monster events, double trap doors aren't even worth it imo
