Dungeons (Rev. 203)

Dungeons consist of a network of rooms, containing various types of monsters based on the theme of the dungeon. The last room will contain one or more boss enemies, which may drop special items. These items may be considered as inferior, or extremely useful.

To reach a dungeon, it is necessary to kill certain enemies, which will randomly or systematically open the entrance to that dungeon. Any player can enter to fight the monsters inside, usually by clicking “Enter” or using the interact key when standing on an entrance.

All portals stay open for 30 seconds, except for the Locked Wine Cellar Portal (open for two minutes) and the The Shatters Portal (open for 70 seconds).


  • 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.
  • Monsters no longer drop Keys as of build 110 (with the exception of the Beach Bum).
  • Since build 111, Keys are available in the Nexus for Realm Gold.
  • Epic Dungeons were added in Release 16.0 as more advanced versions of existing dungeons. Many new features were implemented in these new dungeons, making them capable of killing 8/8 characters.
