Dungeons consist of a network of rooms (in some cases a single room), containing various monsters based on the theme of the dungeon. The last room will contain one or more boss enemies, which may drop special items. Many dungeons also have one or more “treasure rooms” containing minibosses that drop unique loot. Dungeon loot varies widely in quality, but harder dungeons generally drop better loot.

To reach a dungeon, it is necessary to kill certain enemies, which have a chance of dropping an entrance to that dungeon. For certain enemies, this chance is guaranteed. Any player can enter the dungeon by clicking “Enter” or using the interact key when standing on an entrance portal.

All portals stay open for 30 seconds before vanishing, except for the Locked Wine Cellar Portal which will remain for two minutes if not opened. An unlocked Wine Cellar portal remains open indefinitely.

Most dungeons have a player limit of 50 players. Attempting to enter a full dungeon will only result in a “Dungeon is full” message appearing in the chat. The exceptions to this limit are:

All dungeons have an associated difficulty rating, indicated by the number of gravestones on the loading screen for the dungeon. This rating ranges from 0 (harmless) to 5 (high-level to endgame). Note that dungeons with a difficulty of 5 can vary considerably in difficulty.

Some dungeons have a multi-stage layout with portals connecting different stages. Details of these are described on the individual dungeon pages.

Dealing soulbound damage to the boss results in a completion statistic being counted on that player’s character. The Dungeon Collection fame bonuses are awarded to characters that have completed certain dungeons.

Realm Event Dungeons

These dungeons drop from enemies which, for the most part, spawn up to once per realm. With a few exceptions, they are generally more difficult than Realm Dungeons and include some of the hardest dungeons in the game. All of the dungeons listed below drop at a guaranteed rate.

Note that the enemies listed under “dropped” do not include seasonal reskins, which can be found here.

Wormholes are portals to four alien worlds.

Once the Alien UFO is defeated, Commander Calbrik orders his soldiers to retreat and leave a malfunctioning wormhole generator behind. Several wormholes subsequently appear across the realm, and are visible on the minimap as colored dots. Each wormhole is guarded by a small party of enemies from the dungeon.

Heroic Dungeons

These dungeons are a more difficult version of the boss room of their non-heroic counterparts, although they do provide better rewards in compensation. All heroic dungeons do not allow pets.

Both heroic dungeons used to have a chance of dropping from the bosses of the respective non-heroic dungeon (Septavius the Ghost God and Archdemon Malphas) but they currently do not drop, meaning they are only accessible from keys. However, the keys are not currently sold in the Nexus. These dungeons are typically only accessible during special events.

  • Dungeons were added to the game in Build 74, representing the largest addition of content to the game since the extra Classes were first introduced.
  • When the first dungeons were added, monsters dropped Dungeon Keys, which were then used to open the portal. This was changed in build 110, with the exception of the Beach Bum.
  • Since build 111, Keys are available in the Nexus for Realm Gold.
  • Prior to Release X.32.7.0, most dungeons had a loosely enforced player limit of 85 players. It was easy to bypass this limit if many players entered a portal at once, because the player counter took several seconds to update.
