Pandora's Box
Pandora's Box as seen on the adventure map.

Pandora's Box is a special adventure map object, which can be picked up with a hero. The content is a mystery until a hero opens it. When the hero tries to pick up Pandora's Box, he is asked a question whether or not he wishes to open the box. If the answer is yes, the hero may engage into battle if the box has guardians. If the hero defeats the guardians or there are none, the content is revealed. It can be one or more of the following:

The box disappears after a hero successfully opens it.

Creature reward calculation[edit]

The default amount of creature reward (if not set by the map-maker) is calculated by the same formula for Pandora's Boxes and Seer's Huts. The creatures' native town depends on a zone type where Pandora's Box or a quest artifact was generated.

Level 1 AI value 5000
Level 2 AI value 7000
Level 3 AI value 9000
Level 4 AI value 12000
Level 5 AI value 16000
Level 6 AI value 21000
Level 7 AI value 27000

First, the AI value of creature level-based total reward gets divided by the creature's AI value. The result (rounded down) gets modified by the rules:

if = 1-5 no changes
if = 6-12 rounded up to the closest even number
if = 13-50 rounded to the closest 5
if > 50 rounded to the closest 10 (5 gets up to 10)
(max 150 in Horn of the AbyssHorn of the Abyss

E.g.: for Cerberus Cerberus it will look like: 9000÷392 = 22,95 = 22 = 20
