Oryx’s Castle is a medium to high-level dungeon that can only be accessed by closing a realm. When specific Quest Monsters have been defeated and after a wait of two minutes, all players will, during an earthquake, be teleported to Oryx’s Castle. The players in the realm are then divided into 4 teams which converge and fight a pair of bosses that drop the portal to Oryx’s personal chamber.

The castle itself is a source of Potions of Defense, the Ancient Stone Sword, the Spiteful Scutum, and three pieces of the Mad God’s Messenger Priest ST Set.

This dungeon must be completed to earn ‘Tunnel Rat‘, ‘Hero of the Nexus’ and ‘Realm of the Mad Godfame bonuses.

Note: during winter, the floor of the Stone Guardian room is iced/slippery.

The Realm Eye says:
When Oryx first took control of the realm, he lived on the mainland. However, his minions were still quite weak at the time, leaving him too vulnerable to stay.
For protection, he transferred half of his militia to a large, faraway island and ordered to construct a mighty fortress for him.
To handle the inevitably high traffic of overseas liquor deliveries, Oryx’s underlings installed four separate ports for incoming ships.
Unfortunately for Oryx, this glaring design flaw created several key entry points for invaders in his otherwise impenetrable fortifications.



The dungeon consists of four virtually identical “wings”. Each player in the realm will randomly spawn in one of the four wings, on a small island. After traversing a long bridge and entryway, players will fight their way through three rectangular rooms before converging in a central courtyard containing more enemies. After traversing the courtyard, players will confront the Stone Guardians in a rectangular room.

If all Suits of Armor are destroyed and the Stone Guardians are defeated, another rectangular room will open in the back, which contains Janus the Doorwarden.

Before Patch X.32.4.1 (Jan 2020), Oryx’s Castle had the following portal sprite:
Oryx's Castle Portal (old)

This change did not, however, affect anything from the player’s perspective, as the portal to Oryx’s Castle does not normally appear in the game - players are automatically transported to the start of the dungeon and do not access it through a portal.
