What is the point of this game?

To kill enemies, take their drops, and level up to level 20. Have fun!

The bigger goal is to defeat Oryx the Mad God. Oryx the Mad God has put you in his world, where you are food for his minions. The minions protect him and must be kept fed. By defeating the minions, you weaken Oryx’s protections. Eventually you will be able to reach Oryx and fight his simulacrum. And then, if you are lucky you will actually face him face to face.

How do I change my controls?

Press O, or while in the Nexus, press the wrench on the right side. You will have a list of functions put in different categories which are found at the top.

I’ve just unlocked a new class, how do I change my class?

To change your class without purchasing a new slot you must kill or delete your current character. This will return you to the character select screen where you can choose your new class.

What is the maximum level?


Is there anything to do at level 20?

Yes! You can collect stat increase potions to max your characters stats. Lead groups of adventurers to defeat the Cube God, Pentaract, and other high level bosses. Help others level to 20 so that your group will be strong enough to defeat Oryx. Once you defeat all the bosses you’ll open the Oryx Encounter, which is tough, even at level 20.

What is the maximum for stats?

It varies by character class. See the individual class entries here. Once a stat has reached its maximum, the number will be displayed in gold.

What is rolling?

Rolling is when a player continuously levels up a character over and over until the random number generator gives it a substantially above-average HP and/or MP at Level 20.

Where is the Pirate Cave?

How do I pick up loot?

Stand on the loot bag/chest and drag the item into your inventory. If you did this during the tutorial, you would’ve gotten a free defense ring. Another way is to double-click the desired item if your inventory is full.

How do I chat?

If you haven’t registered, do that first. If you have registered, simply hit Enter, write a message, then hit Enter again. In order to send a private message, or PM, simply hit Enter, type /tell <player name> <text>, and hit Enter again to send. Private messages will be displayed in blue text. Lastly, if you are in a guild, it is possible to send a message to all of your guild-mates by simply hitting Enter, typing /g <text>, and hitting enter again to send.

If a monster shows up while you’re chatting, you can click on the game map to resume combat before you’ve finished typing your chat message. To finish typing your chat message, press Enter again.

How do I heal?

Some monsters will drop health potions or snake oil or healing ichor. Save these and use them to heal when you need to.

Priests, Paladins, and Necromancers can heal themselves and others nearby. Stay in a group with one of these healing classes to get healed. When your health is low, you will flash red, so that they will know that someone needs healing. Priests have instant healing, Paladins heal over a duration, and Necromancers drain the life from enemies to heal their companions.

All characters have a vitality stat which heals you over time. Increasing your vitality through the use of stat pots or items allows you to heal more quickly. There are also some pets that have the ability to heal the player. The frequency and amount of health restored is determined by the level of the ability.

Is death permanent?

Yes. Once your character dies, it stays dead. You’re free to make a new character and you may end up doing so many times.

How do I save?

The game autosaves. Your character is still maintained if you leave and return later.

Your character is saved in your Flash cookie. If you wipe or block cookies, it won’t be able to save it. If you create an account in the game, you’ll be able to save your character and play it from multiple computers, without worrying about Flash cookies.

How do I sell, trade, give away, or destroy my stuff?

You can not sell stuff, but you may trade with people, or you can just drop items you don’t want as an alternative:

To initiate a trade, click on a character’s icon below your inventory slot, click trade, then wait for them to acknowledge the trade. Once they do, click the item you wish to give/trade and wait for them to select the items they wish to give you in return (if any). When you are satisfied with the trade, click the trade button. This is a safe and effective way to trade with or give items away to a specific person without the risk of losing the item to a ninja-grabber which often happens when you drop an item. Before accepting a trade, be sure to check which items you have highlighted in order to avoid accidentally trading items you wish to keep.

To drop an item, drag it from your inventory onto the main game area. A bag will appear with that item. Others can pick up the item from the loot bag. Left alone, it will disappear after 30 seconds.

How do I use special abilities?

Every class has one special ability from the item in the second inventory slot. To use it, shift click on the map or press Space. Special abilities use mana, which regenerates automatically (or you can use a magic potion). Stronger abilities use more mana. Your special ability item will darken when you do not have the required mana to use it.

Is there a map?

Every time Oryx is defeated, he destroys the world and creates another. There are roughly 20 randomly generated maps. Brave explorers have mapped out some of the worlds:

The map generation algorithms are described in these blog posts: part 1: polygons, land, beaches, oceans, lakes; part 2: elevation, rivers, moisture, biomes; part 3: rendering, Flash demo, and source code.

Before build 100, this simpler map generation algorithm was used (that page has a Flash applet that lets you generate your own maps).

Where are tougher monsters located?

Monsters levels are usually dictated by the terrain they are located at. Beaches are populated by the weakest monsters. Forests, deserts, and grasslands have the middle level monsters. Rocky (dark gray) and snowy (white) mountains are populated by “gods”. Monsters of all types can wander into other areas, so don’t get too careless. Following roads will keep you within the same general level of monsters. Following rivers uphill will take you into the mountains.

The wiki has a list of monsters.

What are gods?

This is the name given to a monster that inhabits the dark or snowy terrain known as the godlands. A list of gods can be found here.

Where are the dungeons?

If you want to enter a dungeon, you must kill the appropriate monsters until a specific dungeon drops, or purchase a dungeon key in the nexus.

What are the best pieces of equipment?

Most equipment in the game is classified by tier, which ranges from T0-T12 for weapons, T0-T6 for abilities, T1-T13 for armors, and T0-T6 for rings. Due to the existence of UT weapons, abilities, rings, and armors, one piece of equipment is not always better than the other. These are several “toss-up” items. The Class Guides do a good job of explaining the pros and cons of each on a case by case basis.

All Stat Potions, save for Mana and Life, are dropped by event bosses.

How do I teleport?

There are three ways that you can teleport to other players, assuming that they are on the same map as you. First, if they are nearby or if you have locked onto them, you can click their name in the grey box in the bottom-right of the screen, opening a menu which will allow you to choose to teleport to their location or lock onto them so you can always have them displayed in that box. Secondly, you can use the minimap and click on a yellow dot representing a player, which you can teleport from. Thirdly, you can type /teleport <player name>. Some consideration should be observed in using teleportation; low-level players shouldn’t whimsically teleport to level 20 players in the godlands, who may be soloing very dangerous enemies and whose game might be disrupted or ended by a careless follower. However, this can be a very convenient way to meet up with friends or get around the map quickly.

How do you change your name?

First, you must register (i.e. make an account) in the link at the top right of main menu. When you’re registered, you may either change your name by the main menu, in the “change name” text below your randomly generated name, or at the yellow knight at the Nexus, by standing on him and clicking on the “change name” below your inventory. When you’re done, you now have a unique name.

Note: After you’ve chosen your name, you may only change it again by paying 1000 Realm Gold, which is bought with real life money. It’s better to choose your name wisely.

Why are some names yellow?

These names have been registered through the Name Chooser.

Why was my name changed?

Your name was probably considered offensive.

Where can I store my extra items?

In the Nexus, there is a portal to the Vault just south of where you spawn. This Vault is account-bound, so any and all characters that you create in the account share it.

How do I log out?

Click Logout on the top right corner of the title screen. You can get there by refreshing, changing your character in Nexus, pressing “O” on your keyboard and selecting “back to home”, or dying.

Where do I find the class quests?

You can’t find them, since in a way you start with them. They are about gaining a certain amount of fame in one lifetime. With each amount of fame you gain 1 star in that class, and there are 5 stars per class. Once you earn a star, you will never lose it. The current levels of fame to achieve are 20 (1 star), 150 (2 stars), 400 (3 stars), 800 (4 stars), and 2000 (5 stars).

How do you get banned, and what does it mean?

Your account can get banned from the game by breaking the rules of the game. When you are banned from the game, it means you are not allowed into the game.
