Court of Oryx

Last updated: Patch 32.4.1
Court of Oryx

The Court of Oryx is a room accessible via a portal after killing Janus the Doorwarden in Oryx’s Castle. From this area, four mini-dungeons will be opened by Craig, Intern of the Mad God.

The Realm Eye says:
Oryx’s court consists of his most valued and trusted allies.
Holding conferences in the same roomed proved difficult due to disputes in environmental preference, especially between Shaitan and the Royal Cnidarian.
As a compromise, Oryx commanded the first minion he saw to immediately reconstruct their living quarters and allow easy traversal for each court member.

Additional Notes

  • Prior to Patch X.27.0.0, only one dungeon was spawned, in a purely random fashion.

  • The Court of Oryx remains fairly unpopular for one reason - the fact that going in this room means missing out on both Oryx’s Chamber and the Wine Cellar, with the latter in particular offering far superior drops than the four mini-dungeons spawned by the Court, notably Tier 13 Armor and Tier 12 Weapons, and a chance to deal the killing blow to Oryx in either one, which means a boost in fame gained upon death.

  • Regardless, if you desire obtaining the dungeons’ exclusive untiered drops, feel free to prompt anyone about the Court, preferably before you get teleported to Oryx’s Castle due to the rushing nature of the dungeon. Soloing any of the Court’s mini-dungeons is generally not recommended due to the fact one can get overwhelmed very easily in all four, so a fair-sized party is ideal to complete them.
