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!

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…
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!
