Game Objectives

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.

Work Together

Form parties with other players to increase efficiency and have more fun.

Defeat Oryx

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. In both forms large groups will help defeat him due to high health and annoying minions. Oryx can take 85,000 damage before revealing he is in his Wine Cellar, the portal to the area where his second form resides. Within two minutes if someone pops a Wine Cellar Incantation (aka “inc”) the Wine Cellar will open and a much deadlier version is found at the end with a deadly shotgun chock full of damage and nasty status effects and even better loot.

Collect the best equipment

As you level up, you’ll find plenty of equipment that your class may or may not be able to equip. Trade with others to get good equipment for your character as described in the Equipment section. The maximum level is 20, but as with RPGs, equipment is separate from EXP, Fame and Level.

Max your stats

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. Pot as you go or collect and instantly max, either way you are improving your character’s potential and working towards the prestige of an 8/8 character.

Do the Shatters

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. Whether in a clean, coordinated one or a messy, public one, 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.

Farm the Gods

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 to get rich, sometimes killing thousands of gods per day.

Gain the most Experience/Fame

As you gain experience, you also gain fame for your character through standard playing or a train (a coordinated group of people killing gods). Multiply your base fame by fame bonuses and your character might get onto the leaderboards when it dies. Account fame also allows you to feed pets, which are helpful in every sense of the word.

Obtain the coveted White Star

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:

Light blue fame star 0-13
Dark blue fame star 14-27
Red fame star 28-41
Orange fame star 42-55
Yellow fame star 56-69
White fame star 70

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 such varying god kill and accuracy percentages. 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.

Reach the Legends

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…

Pro Player Experience / New Player Experience

Pro Player Experience (or PPE) is a self-imposed challenge for players who know the ins and outs of the game. You start a new character with just your pet and you try to reach a certain goal (usually maxing stats and hunting for rare UT/ST items). you have to obtain everything you get on that character - no trading for your PPE’s benefit or using already owned items. Some people want a challenge, some want a goal and some just want an alternate way to max a character.

New Player Experience (or NPE) is essentially a PPE but you have to make a new account, and theres still no trading. It is many degrees harder, thus it deters most players.
