We’re happy to announce the addition of partial ST bonuses, which will give you a bunch of new interesting build choices! Ninja and Samurai also received some well-deserved stat increases. On top of that we have a bunch of other changes and additions, you’ll notice that Realms will finally pick from the full list of possible names, which has been around since 2011!
Happy April Fools’ Day everyone!
Everything is fine, nothing out of the ordinary, move along!
(Spheres do still count towards Cube kills).
Spring is back and to celebrate it the Realms will be hosting Events during the coming weeks. Biff the Buffed Bunny is back and did not come alone: his offspring has been seen roaming in the Mountain areas, throwing eggs at the unsuspecting adventurers. The Tinkerer loves Easter and will be exchanging Magic and Golden Eggs for Rewards!
During the Events, you will also be able to access the Heroic Undead Lair by using Heroic Undead Lair Incantations on Undead Lair Portals, upgrading it to a more difficult and more rewarding version. The HUDL Incantations will be available in the Nexus for a limited time.
We also decided to introduce The Machine as a permanent addition. Steel Constructs in the Godlands will now have a chance to drop a portal and the key is now also available in the Nexus!
Start date: 04/18/2019
End Date: 05/09/2019

Delve into the Heroic Undead Lair and face a new and challenging Septavius. In this improved version of the classic UDL players will need to learn how to rush through hordes of deadlier than before undead.
This dungeon features new enemies stats, reworked behaviour and a new boss fight with 3 new attacks. As every epic fight deserves epic loot, we have improved the loot table of Septavius.
Also, we decide that from now on, the Chest Events we all know will be called Weekend Challenges from now on! Check out what our Weekend Challenges (thread coming soon) will be during this Easter Season. Note that this thread will be updated with each new Weekend Challenge, so don’t forget to stay updated!
“In the golden age of the realm before Oryx’s reign, this great library hosted a wealth of literature, research, and historical documentation. Eager students studied, esteemed scholars taught, and the realm’s greatest philosophers helped advance their society. When Oryx began his tyranny, he recognized the threat posed by such a capital of learning and intellect. Enlisting the aid of Lord Ruthven’s proficiency in black magic, Oryx unleashed a vicious curse upon the library.
All was corrupted in an instant, transforming those inside into soulless husks of who they once were. Some were lucky enough to retain a humanoid form, while others morphed into eldritch horrors hopelessly beyond recognition. Once a great hub of knowledge, these forsaken archives now hold something far more sinister. Centuries of ancient wisdom, all lost in the blink of an eye. None have set foot on this decrepit site since.
Those who dare tread its cursed grounds may find themselves wiser for it, but at what cost?”
For additional information on the Cursed Library, check out this thread!
Invading aliens have made the realm their next target and it’s up to you to send them back to outer space.
This brand new addition will spice up the realm cycle as any realms could become invaded however it is not a guaranteed occurrence, the more heroes you defeat in the realm, the higher the chance of the event triggering.
Once an invasion has started you will hear from Commander Calbrik and start seeing his army roaming in the mountains. To progress you will need to defeat more and more aliens until more powerful ones show up until finally Calbrik himself joins the fray in his ship for a final confrontation.
Defeating Calbrik’s UFO will allow you to obtain the following items:
Once Calbrik is defeated wormholes will start appearing all around the realm.
Each of those wormholes is a gauntlet style dungeon where you have to fight off waves of enemies as they teleport in. If you are fast enough you will be able to progress further into the waves but if you happen to be too slow then the waves will stop and you will be allowed to return to the realm.
Malogia is behind the red wormhole and a planet with luscious forest, it is not that different from ours however the creatures there are rather aggressive so stay on your toes at all times! In this wormhole you will be able to acquire the following alien gear:
Untaris is behind the blue wormhole and a fractured planet where ice has consumed a majority of the areas. To navigate you will need to use smaller wormholes to teleport across platforms forcing you to keep track of your location. In this wormhole you will be able to acquire the following alien gear:
Forax is behind the green wormhole and a planet covered in acid water, the general environment is dangerous, especially the extremely fast tide you find there. You will need to decide when to cross through and whether or not you can handle the acid river without risking your life. In this wormhole you will be able to acquire the following alien gear:
Katalund is behind the yellow wormhole and a planet covered by unbreathable cloud gas, thankfully there is an air pocket for you to breath but it is constanting shifting. You will need to move alongside it to survive while also keeping track of enemy location as they get more resistant under the gas. In this wormhole you will be able to acquire the following alien gear:
You can also access the four wormholes by using the keys obtained via the First Encounter-campaign or later during the month via the Login Calendar, please note that the keys can only be used in your vault or in a guild hall and that the dungeons have a player limit of 25.
The Alien Invasion offers Players a chance to get exotic loot. Through their adventure, Players will be able to obtain unique Alien gear as well as Alien Cores.
There are 4 Alien Cores that can be found in the different Wormholes and via the Tinkerer. Each of these unique items get stronger as you wear more Alien Gear.
In addition, Players will be able to open the mysterious Locked Reactor they obtained via the First Encounter-campaign. Doing so will grant them the Entropy Reactor.
The Lair of Draconis is about to change in a drastic way, say goodbye to disorganized color calling with no impact and say hello to a brand new inheritance system where each dragon inherits an attribute from the last! Not only that but the distinction between Hard Mode and Normal Mode is completely gone so you will no longer be forced to do Feargus first to access the mighty Ivory Wyvern!
The dungeon has received a giant overhaul altering everything you know while keeping it similar at its core, from the artwork to the gameplay a lot of work was done to make the Lair of Draconis truly stand out from any other dungeon.
The Rock Dragon has also received several changes to accompany the dungeon rework:
The Dragon Tamer Warrior ST Set received several improvements as well:
Not only that but the Sullen Blade will be turned back into the mythical Celestial Blade, of course its stats have been modernized to fit the faster pace of the game:
Just like the Lair of Draconis, the Lair of Shaitan has received a major overhaul, while the core elements of the fight remain, the entire fight has been remade from the ground up to make it much more engaging and of course dangerous. Shaitan has a lot of new tricks up his sleeve so don’t underestimate him!
Of course since the difficulty has been increased to be in line with other Court of Oryx dungeons, the rewards should as well. Shaitans drop table now includes Vitality potions in addition to the already existing Attack potions. Their drop rates are more in line with other court dungeons like Puppet Master’s Encore, this is also the case for the tiered drops.
The Skull of Endless Torment has also received an update with a quite unique effect:
As part of our design goal to improve all STs we have created an improved version of the Paladin ST.
The current ST has been removed from dropping from Candyland and has been replaced with the newer version. Players will keep any piece of the legacy set that they have in their possession. In addition, all Legacy piece will still be tradeable.
To reflect this change, the current ST and its pieces have been renamed to:
The Legacy Swoll Paladin Set doesn’t provide bonus stats but players can still transform to the 16x16 sprite when wearing the full legacy set. The pieces of the Legacy set do not work with the new Swoll Set.
The new Paladin set will drop from Candyland. It has an improved Seal, Ring and bonus stats.
Note:The Mystery ST Chest item will now contain the new Paladin ST set instead of the Legacy Paladin ST set, which has been removed from the mystery item.
The Cursed Library has received a small polish update to fix a few bugs, add some quality of life changes and add new prompts to the Realm Eye related to the Alien Invasion.
All event whites have their drop chance doubled from today until the next release on the 16th of July!
You should join the Realm of the Mad God official Discord server so you can participate in various events with amazing prizes over the course of Month(s) of the Mad God.
They’re currently running a fan lore contest! Prizes include Realm Gold, Mystery ST Chests and more!

The realm is buzzing with excitement! It seems that the recent alien incursion has not left the other denizens of the realm unfazed: The Killer Bee Queen has gone ahead and adapted to these dire times. Our scouts report that her lair has changed and the movement of the queen as well as her army looks …different.
We will have to send you out to explore this very soon! But look out! More aliens have arrived!
Players might experience disconnects in The Nest using Chrome - we recommend using Firefox or Flash Projector.
Fungal Cavern is the first part of a brand new dungeon that will pit you against many mushrooms and other critters on your journey to incredible treasures. This cavern was once a mine, famous for its countless crystals of the highest quality, but it has since been taken over by mushroom tribes and there are few that would dare explore it. Steamhammer’s Mining Co. is willing to do so as long as they are protected by the finest adventurers.
And stay tuned for the second part of the dungeon Crystal Cavern coming in the next few weeks!
Congratulations to all of you! You completed over 100,000 quests to help the dwarves fund their expedition! As a reward they give you:
We noticed that our wording in the patch-notes about keeping a Amethyst Shard x1 for the reward quest was not clear enough.
Of course we would never want you to miss out on your rewards - you deserve them! That’s why our team created additional quests so you can still get an Amethyst Shard x1 right now, even if you have a bigger stack than that. We are sorry for the inconvenience - Enjoy the spoils of your hard work!
The “Unstack Shards 10” quest is now available at the Tinkerer! We had some technical issue which are now fixed. We again apologize for the inconvenience!
As part of our design goal to improve all STs we have created an improved version of the Wizard ST.
The current ST has been removed from dropping from Shatters and has been replaced with the newer version. Players will keep any piece of the legacy set that they have in their possession. In addition, all Legacy pieces will still be tradeable.
To reflect this change, the current ST and its pieces have been renamed to:
The Legacy Twilight Archmage Set doesn’t provide bonus stats but players can still transform to the 16x16 sprite when wearing the full legacy set. The pieces of the Legacy set do not work with the new Twilight Archmage Set.
The new Wizard set will drop from Shatters. It has an improved Staff, Ring and bonus stats.
Note: The Mystery ST Chest item will now contain the new Wizard ST set instead of the Legacy Wizard ST set, which has been removed from the mystery item.
As MotMG is slowly coming to an end, we have a few small updates for you:
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that everything will work right after the currently undergoing server update!
The expedition continues!
After vanquishing the crystalline creature embedded in the Fungal Cavern, the dwarf informs you of the unimaginable riches hidden even deeper within. Blinded by the pleasure of treasure (and perhaps against your better judgment), you throw yourself into the depths below and soon discover crystals… everywhere! But not all is as it seems, for upon closer inspection you notice that some of those gems are very much alive, ready to kill you and your crew for trespassing on their territory. What awaits at the heart of this cavernous labyrinth?
Defeating the Crystal Worm Mother in the Fungal Cavern will allow you access to the Crystal Cavern. The dungeon is structured similarly to the Fungal Cavern. Defeat 25 Crystals to activate the drill and make your way to the Crystal Entity.
With the release of the second and final part of the Abandoned Mineshaft, we are also adding new entries to the Realm Eye in the Cursed Library, four to be exact! Guill also has new lines when a Fungal Cavern is opened next to him, giving you tips and other witty remarks on the deeper part of the dungeon.
With the introduction of our new Magic Box system, we release two types of crystals: Crystal of Extreme Fortune and Crystal of Fortune. The first will be exchangeable for new skins, while the second type for those already released in the past. If you are not willing to collect them in chase of new skin, you can serve them as pet food. For more information about them and the new Magic Box system read our Producer’s Letter.
The first new boxes will be available in the shop starting today, one of them being a farewell box for our dear friend r4ndomSXD who decided to chase new adventures. You can find his goodbye letter right here.
To celebrate the release of the Crystal Cavern, we are activating a double XP event in both Fungal and Crystal Cavern.
The Event will run from 08/22 - 12:00 PM UTC until 08/26 - 12:00 PM UTC
You fought back well and managed to push the alien forces out! Now that MotMG has come to an end, Commander Calbrik gathered his army and ordered them to get back on their ships. He left in pursuit of a new mission, but he plans to visit realms every once in a while to measure your power levels.
More information about upcoming changes can be found in our Producer’s Letter.
Great tremors have been taking place throughout the realms. At first, some assumed it was just Oryx getting overzealous with his earth-rattling quakes, but as heroes and monsters alike turned their faces to the sky, the real cause became clear. Five imposing towers of raw crystal have pierced the surface of the land. A beautiful sight, to be sure…
…well, for about five seconds before everyone realized what these towers brought with them. Gemstone abominations, creatures once limited to the depths of the Crystal Cavern, have breached the realm’s exterior! Only someone with the mining prowess of a dwarf would be able to achieve a feat like this, but why?
The Keyper is a brand new event that aims to provide engagement in the realms as well as greater accessibility to rarer dungeons. You can fight him up to two times per realm after you disable his 5 crystal towers. They will spawn in the highlands and mountains after you defeat all Cyclops Gods and activate once again later in the cycle after you defeat all Ent Ancients.
A victory over The Keyper will guarantee you 8 portal drops out of a pool that we will update over time. But be warned: He may be a coward, but like a cornered bear, he can strike back with great force. He has infinite keys, after all, and he isn’t afraid to weaponize them.
Loot from The Keyper:
Current Dungeon Drop Pool:
You can read more about him here.
Seeing that you fancy the encounter dungeon guaranteeing, we have decided to keep it that way. More dungeons equals more fun!
Keypers’ towers will start spawning in the realms, starting 09/05 - 12:00 PM UTC until 09/10 - 12:00 PM UTC.
Increased Loot Drop and EXP in Lair of Draconis will be active, starting 09/06 - 12:00 PM UTC until 09/10 - 12:00 PM UTC.
Changes to The Keyper:
Additionally, the Keyper has received minor behavior tweaks in his first and third phases. He will circle players slightly slower and charge inward more frequently in his first phase, and his third phase is now more likely to run at slower speeds.
Calbrik is back, but this time not of his own volition. He was developing an army of Alien Biffs in a remote base, but an unexpected swarm of coordinated invaders stormed the compound and released the cyborg terrors. The extraterrestrial rabbits are now running wild in the realms and causing havoc. Calbrik had no choice but to get on his ship and come pay you a visit. Protect your territory again in this limited time invasion and use the opportunity to obtain alien gear!
The aliens are back for a second round. The UFO will be guaranteed once per realm and will drop 5 Universal Tokens made by Aurum for each player. Meanwhile, Alien Biff will spawn after all Cyclops Gods are defeated and will drop 3 guaranteed Universal Tokens, as well as a chance for Alien Armors and Locked Reactor. He will also drop a random wormhole when defeated! Additionally, the first and second bosses of wormholes will drop 1 Universal Token each.
One last thing, you might wanna check the Mystery Shop tomorrow once the event starts… maybe there will be some FAMEous rewards…Maybe…
Undocumented changes in this update (derived from player observations - list might be incomplete):
Undocumented changes in this update (derived from player observations - list might be incomplete):
We bring news!
Starting today, you will be faced with a new pop-up when you enter the game. In it, you can enter an email address of yours where we can contact you with news about the Unity Beta, and even more importantly, access to it! If you do not want to see this window anymore, you can turn it off in the game settings.
This is especially important for the Steam players among you, as we will have to send you additional login information to enable you to play the Unity Beta through Steam.
It was great to finally release this feature and we hope you had a blast! It was fantastic to see so many players, old and new, come into the RIFT and make Season 1 a special time for all. Based on the feedback and data we gathered from this first season we will continue to improve the mode and continue to bring new and exciting RIFTS your way!
Of course, not everything was perfect in this season, and a big part of our work right now is to address as many of those issues in time for the next season. Notable issues were:
Rewards for completing Tunnel Rat and Last Call quest will be sent tomorrow (10/2/2019).
Once we have a new, better version of RIFTS, we will run another similar season with a few small changes. Stay tuned for more info!
The Prismimic is one of the Crystal Entity’s more promising creations, constructed to cause havoc among surface dwellers. As a skilled illusionist who uses deceptive light reflection to trick victims, its purpose is to study various foes so that it may learn and mimic them. These cunning creatures have started their evaluation with two especially curious dungeon bosses: The rapidly evolving Murderous Megamoth of the Woodland Labyrinth, and the enigmatic hermit Esben residing in the Ice Cave.
What is a Prismimic?
Prismimic is a new Event Boss which will be activated in Dungeons occasionally. It spawns alongside dungeon bosses where the event is running. The fight only begins once players have defeated the real dungeon boss. Once the fight has started, Prismimic will split into two enemies - Attacker and Defender. Each of them will then undergo three transformations as the fight progresses, making it play out differently each time.
Prismimic Attacker Drops:
Prismimic Defender Drops:
Woodland Labyrinth 10/03/2019 12:00PM UTC - 10/05/2019 12:00PM UTC
Ice Cave 10/05/2019 12:00PM UTC - 10/07/2019 12:00PM UTC
We prepared an additional event for you this weekend!
A few Godlands Gods will temporarily have a chance to drop their respective pet skins! Figure out which and try to get some!
Here’s what we have for you:
We are happy to inform you that we’ve prepared another RIFT season for you. It is very similar to the previous one but with a few tweaks:
Loot : All Drops Infographic
Wine Cellar Incantation
Starting 10/10 - 12:00 PM UTC until 10/14 - 12:00 PM UTC. a new group of Godlands Gods will drop their respective pet skins.
Prismimic will run in the Lair of Draconis from 10/12 - 12:00 PM UTC until 10/15 - 12:00 PM UTC. The Prismimic Defender now has a chance of dropping a Shard of the Mad God x1.
We created this series of weapons to connect all the events we are currently running in RotMG. To make this connection starting today (10/08) dungeon events will drop Shards of the Mad God. Once you collect 25 and right-click on the stack, you will be rewarded with 1 out of 6 weapons from Agents of Oryx Series. Tokens dropping from events and equipment to obtain will rotate throughout the year so that within 12 months, players will be able to obtain each part of equipment. Here are Oryx’s Weapons.
We are very thankful for all feedback and testing you made. We registered almost 350 players on testing servers each day. Due to the mixed feedback we are not introducing these changes any time soon. We need to first review all the comments and make some adjustments. Once we do that we will run another PTs to gather feedback. These are big changes to the game and we need time to decide if and how we want to implement them.
* Our ticket system is currently down. We are sorry for the inconvenience!
The season of spooks is approaching!
Our Halloween Event will start on 10/23/2019 and will last until 11/6/2019. We have prepared many scary attractions and free stuff will be on the menu so be sure to participate!
To get you in the mood, we will host a Heroic Weekend and tease some of the upcoming limited items! Starting today 10/16/2019, The Keyper will be back in the Realms with an updated dungeon pool featuring the Heroic Undead Lair and Heroic Abyss of Demons! His current pool is Heroic Abyss of Demons, Heroic Undead Lair, Lair of Draconis, Cnidarian Reef, and Secluded Thicket.
Furthermore, the Keyper event has received some light balance changes. HP scaling on all Emergent monsters has been removed, and all damage values have been approximately halved, making them overall much less lethal than their dungeon counterparts.
We will also have events for both heroic dungeons:
During the time of the events, the Heroic Dungeon Portals will have a chance to spawn at the end of their respective normal dungeon. Heroic dungeons will be also dropping some extra stuff for the duration:
For Halloween, we prepared some scary reskins of existing ST sets. Each Mystery Item will transform into one out of 8 items from two sets:
You will be able to obtain these items via quests and as drops during the Halloween Event, but now we are giving you an opportunity to get some in advance! Furthermore, the top 50 openers of Heroic Keys (Heroic Abyss & Heroic UDL combined) will be rewarded with both Mystery Items for their altruism!
Additionally, we are deactivating the Beer God until the 21st of October, when he will make a special appearance. During our Octoberfest Event, he will be more common, have more HP, and have a few new tricks up his sleeves. He will spawn up to two times per realm and will also bring his signature items with him: The Mighty Stein and the Greaterhosen!
This Thursday (10/17/2019) we have also something special for you! At 3 PM UTC our two famous designers Kiddforce & Toastrz will host a stream. Testing servers will be open for public so you can either join them or watch them on Twitch channel. They will be running a new version of Cemetery prepared to be released for Halloween Event and answering your questions. Join them in realm or on Twitch chat!
Oryx is no stranger to this especially spooky time of year. With a little help from Skuld, the realm has been overrun by haunted terrors! But those daring enough to take on these freakish versions of familiar foes may find it worth their while, as a whole host of new Halloween items have made their way into the realm as well!
The Haunted Cemetery dungeon has been reworked just in time for the Halloween season! You can read a full list of changes here.
This year we will ask you to gather three types of tokens: Bone Sigil, Cursed Coin and Soul Spark. Tokens are spread in Realms and Dungeons.

I hope you all enjoy those changes, that should make many of those items much more desirable and worth the journey through the dangerous Abandoned Mineshaft!
Rogue ST Rework
The current ST has been removed from dropping from Haunted Cemetery and has been replaced with the newer version. Players will keep any piece of the legacy set that they have in their possession. In addition, all Legacy pieces will still be tradeable.
To reflect this change, the current ST and its pieces have been renamed to:
Legacy Skuld 2 The ReGhostening Set Legacy Etherite Dagger Legacy Ghastly Drape Legacy Mantle of Skuld Legacy Spectral Ring of Horrors
The Legacy Skuld Set doesn’t provide bonus stats but players can still transform to the 16x16 sprite when wearing the full legacy set. The pieces of the Legacy set do not work with the new reworked Rogue ST set.
The new Rogue ST set will drop from Haunted Cemetery.
Etherite Dagger Ghastly Drape Mantle of Skuld Spectral Ring of Horrors
Note: The Mystery ST Chest item will now contain the new Rogue ST set instead of the Legacy Rogue ST set, which has been removed from the mystery item.
More improvements to performance of servers A new Halloween Fame Box in store now! (2 spins per account every week of Halloween events!) The Halloween Free Pack will be in store starting October 31st! We noticed many players participating in Heroic Event! Thank you very much, we hope you had fun! Here is the list of top 50 players who opened most of Heroic Dungeons! The Headless Horseman in the realm now has less forced invulnerability periods and improved technical cleanup. Cemetery Key has been removed from the Rare Mystery Key item and added to the Epic Mystery Key item due to price changes. Fixed the alignment of some item sprites for consistency. New Skins Halloween Mystery Skin, updated content: Adorable Lil' Warrior Skin Apprentice Wizard Skin Barefoot Rogue Skin Bruno the Rogue Steward Skin Cleopatra Priestess Skin Cultist of Unknown Origin Skin Dark Rider Ninja Skin Demonhunter Huntress Skin Gravekeeper Hunter Skin Gravekeeper Warrior Skin Guillotiner Samurai Skin Haunted Knight Skin Heart Thief Necromancer Skin Jiangshi Trickster Skin Kabuki Ninja Skin Knight Lady Skin Lady Violetta Necromancer Skin Living Armor Warrior Skin Night Elf Queen Trickster Skin Oni Demon Samurai Skin Pandora Priestess Skin Skeleton Archer Skin Skeleton Knight Skin Spooky Roommate Wizard Skin Timelock Mystic Skin Underworld Archer Skin Valkyrie Paladin Skin Vampire Groom Assassin Skin
We are aware that there is an issue with Oryx’s Castle. We are working on a fix and will release it as soon as possible.
Hi there Realmers,
We have a few things for you today, so let’s start!
New Quest System
The Tinkerer’s quest system has been updated! As we mentioned in our previous update, we want to share more details for the actual quests. A full table with all quests, requirements, and rewards can be found at the end of this thread.
These revisions aim to make the Tinkerer’s quest system appealing for all levels of play, rather than mostly just the midgame as it previously was. A Beginner Quest Chest has been to help give weaker characters a quick leg up for completing early game dungeons, and the endgame has been split into a variety of distinct Epic Quest Chests instead of the old generalized one that lacked most endgame loot. Note that all existing Epic Quest Chests have been converted into Mighty Quest Chests, which are more rewarding than before but no longer have certain endgame UTs. Further details can be seen below.

Temporary quests (Tarot Cards and Treasures). Since we will be removing these in the future, you might want to get something in exchange, so don’t miss out on this opportunity.
As a side note, since marks now drop from an even broader range of content than before, we have taken the opportunity to make some adjustments to bag color assignments to make things more consistent. In short, all marks now drop from purple bags and all keys, pet food, and skins now drop from golden bags. We hope that this small change will allow for clearer bag identities, as the orange bag is now strictly to signify STs and the golden bag contains the kind of loot that is usually only dropped from special events.
A small reminder that the RIFTS season will start on 11/14/2019 12 PM UTC and last until 11/21/2019 12 PM UTC! We will share more details about the season tomorrow, so stay tuned!

A prophet for the Mad God, spreading Oryx’s propaganda to those unfortunate enough to be in his path. An accomplished pirate king, a remnant of the realm’s many kingdoms from a bygone era. A blessed fairy, defending the little ones who could not fend for themselves. Together, these three may look like nothing more than a band of misfits, but they represent the realm’s factions. The cruel strength of Oryx’s tyranny, the rebellious humans who answer to no one but themselves, and the neutral creatures caught in the crossfire. Now you can take the role of all three!
RIFTS: Infestation is over - thank you for participating. You will receive your rewards soon!
The new STs we mentioned yesterday are finally on production! Here’s a bit more info about each of them:
Pirate King Warrior Set
Swashbuckler's Sickle Tricorne of the High Seas Naval Uniform First Mate's Hook Mini Pirate King Warrior Skin
Note: This set brings great power! Only worthy characters are able to use full set on them! Don’t try to use it before reaching level 12 or you will be overwhelmed by it!
Mad God’s Messenger Priest Set
Theurgy Wand Ceremonial Merlot Anointed Robe Ring of Pagan Favor Mini Messenger Priest Skin
Horticultural Huntress Set
Bergenia Bow Lifebringing Lotus Hollyhock Hide Chrysanthemum Corsage Mini Swarming Huntress Skin
Note: A small reminder that the older Priest, Huntress and Warrior ST now drop with an increased drop rate at their respective dungeons! For more information -> https://bit.ly/3476xi6!
New ST Bonus Program - A STory of War: a Priest, a Warrior and a Huntress…
For the next 12 days we will be running a Bonus Program where you will have a chance to get parts of new sets and maybe even gather them. The Bonus Program starts today and will end on December 2nd. More details below:
Start: November 21st, 2019 at 13:00 UTC End: December 2nd, 2019 at 12:00 UTC Grace Period: 2 days (till December 4th, 2019 at 12:00 UTC) Quest at the Tinkerer: till December 8th, 2019 at 12:00 UTC Rewards War STory Chest can be exchanged at the Tinkerer for one of the following: Mystery Priest ST Crate Mystery Huntress ST Crate Mystery Warrior ST Crate
Each of those Mystery Crates contains their respective ST parts, their mini skin and:
Char Slot Unlocker Ambrosia Vault Chest Unlocker Mystery ST Shard x5 Golden Lucky Clover
Q: What is a Bonus Program/Rewards ?
A: A Bonus Program/Rewards is a time limited event that can be accessed in the Shop. It allows players to collect Bonus Points (BP) with gold they spend in the Shop and claim Bonus rewards.
Q: Why release a BONUS (Program/Rewards)?
A: Awhile ago, we released a new feature in order to run the Unity Support Campaign. The feature was a big investment for our team in terms of development and we designed it with possible future campaigns in mind from the start.
We are re-purposing the feature to make it available again in the form of events during which you’ll collect additional rewards for supporting the game via gold purchases or solving quests, depending on the type of bonus program.
Q: How do I participate?
A: Whenever a Bonus Program/Rewards starts, you will be able to access the feature directly in the Shop. In order to participate and to start collecting points, you will first have to “unlock” the campaign. A Story of War is FREE to unlock!
The details above are subject to change with future campaigns.
Q: Is the Bonus Program mandatory? Why should I participate?
A: None of the Bonus Programs will be mandatory, of course! It is totally up to you to unlock the campaign or not. The main idea of a Bonus Program is to give extra rewards. However, you will not collect points as long as the Bonus Program is not unlocked and this will not be retroactive (i.e. any points generated before unlocking the Bonus Program will not count).
Q: Can I obtain the Unity Supporter Campaign Glow, Chat Color and Gravestone skins via the Bonus Campaign?
A: No, you can’t. Those were exclusive to the Unity Supporter Campaign and limited to the users that helped us push through with the unity port project.
Q: What is a “Grace Period” and what is its purpose?
A: The “Grace Period” of a Bonus Program is a limited time where the Bonus Program will still be visible at the Mystery Shop but you will no longer be able to progress in the tiers even if you keep donating (directly or via purchases in the shop). This grace period is there so everyone can claim the rewards from the tier he/she already have unlocked while the Bonus Program was live (in a non-grace period).
Q: Will any direct purchases from the Nexus/character screen count towards the Bonus campaign?
A: No. That was possible for the Unity Support Campaign but it no longer is. Right now, only purchases/direct donations made in the Mystery Shop will count towards the Bonus Program.
Edit: We are aware of connection problems and we will be pushing fix shortly.
Of course, we all know that Oryx has total control of the Realm and is as powerful as he is malevolent, but… maybe it’s because we are close to THAT time of the year that he is slightly less evil and allowed us to introduce several changes and additions to the Realm? Can this be a step that leads to something cool and benevolent? Who knows…
The disconnection issues that you were all facing earlier today has now been fixed. We apologize for the inconvenience!
New Treasure Rooms
To help spruce things up, the three classic Epic Dungeons (Deadwater Docks, Woodland Labyrinth, and the Crawling Depths) have all received treasure rooms! Search around and you may get yourself a welcome second chance at their respective dungeon drops!
In the Deadwater Docks, a large circular room can now be found deep in the dreary cave system, featuring a more narrow path of docks to navigate before reaching a special upgradeable chest. While the base level naturally offers typical treasure room loot (all boss potions/UTs), it has a chance to upgrade once or even twice (indicated by flashing and changing color) for increasingly better rates.
At the end of a long, fully concealed hallway (long enough to not see the room on the other side with the minimap) is the Swarm Tree, a new treasure room monster similar to the coffins in the Manor. Finding this room presents a new exploration challenge that utilizes the dungeon’s unique mechanic of overhead canopies which cover hallways. Explorers with keen eyes will spot the gap in the wall and walk through to find this bonus room.
The Crawling Depths
In a similar vein as Santa’s Workshop or the jar rooms in the Lost Halls, this room surrounds the player with dozens of destructible eggs, all serving as mini-chests with a small chance at loot from each of them (or a minor enemy on rare occasion). Since the Crawling Depths is entirely linear, this room is not guaranteed like the other two, instead having a rare chance of appearing on the main path for a moment of relief.
These magical keys are similar to the guild keys we introduced last month. Apart from their new look, the other difference is that the drop will spawn only for the key opener once they key is popped. And what the drop will be - a Mystery ST Crate which contains:
Bergenia Bow Lifebringing Lotus Hollyhock Hide Chrysanthemum Corsage Theurgy Wand Ceremonial Merlot Anointed Robe Ring of Pagan Favor Swashbuckler's Sickle Tricorne of the High Seas Naval Uniform First Mate's Hook Char Slot Unlocker Ambrosia Vault Chest Unlocker Mystery ST Shard x5 Superburger Golden Lucky Clover Mystery ST Shard x3 Mystery ST Shard x2 Mystery ST Shard x1 Lucky Clover Loot Drop Potion Loot Tier Potion
This will be a second phase of new ST release system we mentioned in the past. Enchanted keys will be sold for the events happening until the end of December.
The Enchanted Keys we have so far are: Ocean Trench Enchanted Key The Crawling Depths Enchanted Key Deadwater Docks Enchanted Key Woodland Labyrinth Enchanted Key
Ocean Trench Chest Challenge The Event will run from 12/05 until 12/08 - 12:00 PM UTC. Defeat Thessal to spawn the Event Chest. The Event Chest will remain invincible for 15 seconds after spawning.

The multiplier event (EXP x1.5 & Drop Rates x1.5) in Deadwater Docks will only apply for the boss, not the whole dungeon. We apologize for the confusion!
Woodland Labyrinth Event EXP x1.5 & Drop Rates x1.5 The Event will run from 12/11 - 12:00 PM UTC until 12/13 - 12:00 PM UTC.
New Skins We know many of you are anticipating UT exchange system we mentioned in the previous thread. Unfortunately, our current implementation did not meet our quality standards, so we decided to postpone it. We are planning to implement it after Unity release as we see this as an important feature for many players. Good news everyone! Selling items for fame in the Nexus has been fixed! The first things that will be available for purchase are all dyes and clothes. You can check them out in the usual place - the Bazaar. Dyes will be sold for 300 fame while clothes for 600. Considering the amount of entries for the UGC Art Contest, we wanted to speed things up. We decided to have an internal vote on the sprites. The winner of one of the categories (pet or character skin) will still be part of the upcoming Bonus Program, as mentioned in our previous thread. Both our UGC team and the Testers have been working hard to make sure things look amazing and work properly for the upcoming season’s events and we are thankful to our UGCs for the extra effort they put in to participate in this contest.
Love, warmth, and happiness is upon us as we wait for one of the brightest holidays of all - Oryxmas! Even if it’s named after him, Oryx can get a bit anxious due to all the attention he will be receiving, so we warn you… you are walking on thin ice! With that, we have our new Rifts: On Thin Ice!
The realm has suddenly gotten colder, allowing some chill new inhabitants to populate the land from the shore to the mountains! In this faster and shorter season you will be tasked with acquiring snowballs from wandering snowmen, as well as various snowmen items from dungeon bosses. By combining these, you will be able to summon a brand new snowman boss! Marks will no longer drop from dungeon bosses, but instead from the snowman boss based on the items used to build it. This will allow you to work together towards a common goal: split up, build a boss, and then share your results, all in the spirit of Oryxmas!
On top of this, we will be introducing two new items with this season: Esben’s Shaman Attire and Esben’s Wedding Ring. Both items will feature in the Ice Cave in Rift: On Thin Ice as well as be rewards on Original Mode, after completing all Rifts quest with a Mad Pass (on Original Mode)! Don’t be scared to wear those, as we plan to add them as a drop to Esben the Unwilling in Original Mode in the near future.
A little more information about Mad Pass:
The pass is a token that, once purchased, will allow you to get more and better rewards from Rift’s Seasons.
The Mad Pass: On Thin Ice will be available from the 6th of December and can be purchased in the Packages section of the shop. This one is specifically tied to the equivalent Rift (the RIFTS: On Thin Ice) that will be active from the 12th of December for 5 days.
If you purchase the pass and you manage to complete the Rift’s quests you will receive better rewards.
When the RIFTS season ends, depending on which quests you have completed, you will receive the equivalent rewards on Original Mode (NOT the Rift one). Don’t panic if, after the season ends, you don’t see the reward, as it may take a few days for them to be sent.
The only requirement is to own the marks that allows you to complete the specific Rift’s quests. In the table below you can see which one you need and the rewards you will get on Original Mode in the end.
