As you walk through the zone you will find many aggro mobs (e.g., evil harpies, scarecrows, zombies), equal level and usually 1-2 down-arrows. Non-aggro spirits will wiz by you and as you kill mobs, your health increases to enable you to kill epic mobs solo at the end!
Attackable shinies harvest a holiday collection; they become aggro upon harvest! There are a few chests hidden within the maze, and an optional quest—click to show the walkthrough below!

(You can get this quest at most once every 18 hours).
Head back to where you received the first cutscene and continue on east. Use the statue ( 953, 8, -579 ) /waypoint 953, 8, -579 to teleport to the middle of the maze. Watch the cutscene and enjoy your final encounter in the maze.
