    If I remember correctly, there was an algorithm named in this episode (or perhaps an ulterior one) which didn’t rely on finding a path from point 1 to point 2, but rather fill the map with paths towards the player.
    This is a lot more efficient as it requires one (bigger) calculation per objective, instead of one per enemy/follower

    Do you by any chance have the name of this algorithm?
