Realm of the Mad God pits every player against Oryx and his innumerable horde of monsters. Killing as many of his creatures as possible to summon the Mad God himself for a duel is the main objective of the game. However, there’s more to see and do.
Form parties with other players and help each other kill monsters and potentially finding loot.
Band together with other players to defeat all Quest Monsters, and then Oryx will finally show up to duke it out. All players on the server will be transported to his castle, where his Stone Guardians will need to be defeated.
Entering the portal dropped by the Guardians will bring you to Oryx. It will take a team to defeat him, as he continually spawns his own demons to shield himself from your attacks. Oryx can take 85,000 damage before revealing he is in his Wine Cellar, which will last for two minutes before closing, and pledging to return after another Realm of his minions are killed. He generally leaves behind some nice loot for his vanquishers.
As you level up, you’ll find plenty of equipment that your class may or may not be able to equip. Find other players via chat to share loot with until you have the best equipment for your character as described in the Equipment section. The maximum level is 20, but equipment is not limited based on player level.
Gods and dungeon bosses drop stat potions in pot bags upon death. Many dungeon bosses have a guaranteed pot drop, while gods have a certain drop rate of stat pots. Either way, collecting and using these stat pots (by double clicking or Shift-clicking) increases your stats. One goal is to get to the widely-admired 8/8, when all of your stats are maxed.
You may think that you are done after you have defeated Oryx the Mad God and gotten good at the game, but have you ever done the Shatters? The Shatters is widely accepted as the hardest dungeon in the entire game, dropping end game loot, including 3 powerful rings and top-tier equipment. This bone-breaking dungeon will really test your abilities at the game with 3 different bosses and high-HP monsters. On top of this, the Shatters is also the only place you can get the top-tier Unbound rings. Many players collect all 8 of them!
In addition to dropping good equipment, the gods also drop potions that can permanently increase your stats. Many players have taken to farming the gods for these potions, hoarding collections numbering in the hundreds!
As you complete class quests, you’ll gain stars. With 5 stars per class, and 14 classes total, there are a total of 70 class quests to complete. For every 14 stars you gain, the color of your star changes:
Upon completion of every class quest, one obtains the coveted white star.
Note that you can achieve this after death as a result of the fame bonuses. For example, one might have a character with 1300 base fame upon death. Due to bonuses such as mundane, well-equipped, etc., the total fame may be boosted to 2000, granting the fifth class star.
This is only achievable by the longest-living and best characters. By getting an immense amount of fame, one can have their name placed on the character leader boards. Fame bonuses also help in this endeavor. Reach upon the legends, and your character receives a strange red glow…
Pet Player Experience, or commonly known as PPE, is a challenging version of gameplay, that is attempted by many experienced players. The player must start a fresh, new character and reach a certain goal, which is mostly maxing 8/8 on the character, using only the loot you have received from your own drops, meaning no trading, no donation accepts, no scavenging on items people drop, nothing, with the exception of certain items that is impossible to obtain in the realm, such as backpacks and vanity cloths. More can be seen at the guide here. The New Player Experience, often referred to as NPE, is the same as above with the added requirement that no pet is ever used. The NPE is rarely done by any other then the best players. Below are examples of PPE.
