New Season

This Season is a little bit shorter than the previous ones. This time you will have 5 weeks to complete the Battle Pass and the new Missions coming with this update. The main reason for this is to have the next season already live 2 weeks before we release the Easter update. As you know we had some issues in the recent past with releasing several features and events at once and we don’t want to release everything at the same time.
Since the Battle Pass is shortened, we have reduced the price to 600g for this season.

Battle Pass


Battle Pass Rewards


A new Season also means new Missions! As always, remember that finishing Missions will give you progress with your Battle Pass.

“Playing Now” Panel

This is a new tab we have added to the Social Menu called “Playing now”.

In this panel you can see the players currently in the same room as you. This does not work outside the current room for the time being, but we want to hear your opinions on this feature.

In the upper section, you can see your own character and set the visibility of the character for the rest of the players in that room.

If set to ON (which is the default), then the character is visible in the “Available players” list for all other players. Players with visibility OFF won’t appear in this list nor be added to the player count for the current map. Beware that if you decide to load a new character, the visibility toggle should keep the previous setting. 

You can also sort players by pressing the icon ↿⇂ .The sorting order is by star rank and then maxed stats (X/8).

In addition, you can hover any character in the “Available players” section to open the regular interaction panel. This also allows you to chat, trade, lock or add new Friends directly from this list. Remember some commands like Trade will still not work if you are too far from the player.

Status icons

  • You can pick an icon from a predetermined list by clicking next to your star rank.
  • You can use these “statuses” however you want! For example:
    • An icon to advertise you have keys for an important dungeon (or O3 runes)
    • An icon to advertise you look forward playing endgame dungeons
    • An icon to advertise you are in a certain mood
    • An icon to advertise you are happy and looking forward to chat or socialize

  • Fixed a display name issue with the Encounter

  • Increased BXP and XP by ~18%

  • Kogbold Welder circles the player at 2.4 tiles instead of 1.8

  • Drop rate increases for all UTs except Amulet of Frenzy, Core increased slightly more than the rest

Update – Mardi Gras + New STs

February 21


Time for another update. Introducing first our new ST Sets. The Onmyoji Ninja and the Plague Doctor Priest find their way into Realm of the Mad God. You will also be able to join our next campaign Horror STory III and jump into the Event Dungeons during Mardi Gras! The Discord voted and decided which Skin everyone will be able to receive for free in the Shop.

At the end, you will find more information regarding changes to dungeon modifiers and new dungeon mods.

ST Sets

Like opposite sides of the same coin, the Plague Doctor and Onmyoji try to help those separated by the boundary between life and death.

Ninja Set: Onmyoji Ninja

The Onmyoji Ninja trades their Ninja Star for an Invocation scroll that, while held, summons extra shots for their weapon. They also utilize the new ability swap mechanic, to swap between 2 different shot patterns. Wearing the Armor and the Ring will provide unique buffs to this ability.

*The Token Name for the Shakujo & Cane of Caduceus in the Forge Interface are currently wrong and will be fixed in a future update.

Ability 1

Ability 2

Items in the set:

  • Weapon – Shakujo
  • Ability – Invocation Scroll
  • Armour – Divination Cloak
  • Ring – Omamori

Priest Set: Plague Doctor Priest

The Plague Doctor Priest forgoes the usual Healing Tome for their own preferred medical device…their leeches. The Plague Doctor Priest can summon up to 3 leeches to aid them in battle, siphoning the health of enemies, and exploding with a healing AOE burst. The leeches can be upgraded to siphon health to players, and also burst with a damaging AOE blast. This ability uses the switch ability mechanic to manually detonate the leeches.

Items in the set:

  • Weapon – Cane of Caduceus
  • Ability – Bloodletting Leeches
  • Armour – Doctor’s Overcoat
  • Ring – Plague Mask

Horror STory III

Description: Join the Campaign for free and collect points with every purchase you make in the Mystery Shop or Nexus. Collecting points will unlock Ranks and many bonus Rewards! The Quests start on the 21st of February and end on the 18th of April.

Additionally, the next 8 most voted skins will be added to a quest during the time of the event, where you can choose to redeem one of them. You will also be able to purchase those 8 skins with a discount in our Shop. Either in packs or as a single purchase. 

The Mardi Gras Event starts on the 21st of February after the release and ends on the 27th of February.

Changes to Dungeon Modifiers

It is time we adjust the Dungeon Modifiers. As you know, Dungeon Modifiers are special properties that can appear in dungeons that modify several aspects of the gameplay for that particular run. At the same time, dungeons have a Difficulty level, which is used as a generic metric for how challenging the dungeon is.

In the future, we want to improve the Difficulty levels system for all dungeons, and one of the first steps for that, is to change Dungeon Modifiers for all dungeons.

The list of changes for this update is as follows:

  • Dungeon Modifiers are skewed positively. It is not guaranteed but in general, you will see more “positive” than “negative” mods. However, this distinction can sometimes be flimsy as some mods like “Spider Swarm“ and many others have a mixed effect of increasing challenge and rewards to the player.
  • For that reason, dungeon modifiers will not display a “green” or a “red” color; instead, they will all be the same color.

  • In addition, now Dungeon Modifiers will not affect the Difficulty level of the dungeon. This is also in line with our vision for the Difficulty level system and future changes that will come at a later time.
  • Lastly, we have decided to disable Dungeon Modifiers that change the HP and damage inflicted by the enemies. The list of Dungeon Modifiers disabled are below (all intensities):
    • Weak Minions and Boss
    • Tame Minions and Boss
    • Bulky Minions and Boss
    • Elite Minions and Boss
    • Ferocious Minions and Boss

Note: if you have a key with any of these Modifiers it will still be usable. However in the Key Refining system they cannot appear again, so if you reroll, upgrade or downgrade that key, these Dungeon Modifiers won’t appear.

New Dungeon Modifiers

  • To make up for the removed modifiers, we have created the following options:
    • Heroic Defense, Heroic Frenzy, Heroic Damage, Heroic Speed
      • Allows enemies to drop Heroic orbs which apply effects other than Healing and Energised.
      • The orbs dropped give the following effects (in this order):
        • Armored
        • Berserk
        • Damaging
        • Speedy

      • Drop rate of the orbs is roughly half that of the Healing and Energised versions.

    • Unprepared I-V

      • Reduces the rate of health and mana potion drops from minions.

  • A number of other Modifiers have been changed as part of this pass:

  • Dull, Keen, Skilled and Lazy modifiers now have one extra level each.
  • Found Treasure! I and II can now spawn alongside other reward-type modifiers.
  • Survivor has been broken into 5 levels to match Unprepared.

Changes and Fixes

  • Added the fix for the O3 DC issues that you helped us test a while back!
  • Fixed the issue with the Eye Emote.
  • Medusa and Beholder now have the correct original projectile sprite.
  • Fixed an issue with the projectile sprites of the Sweetheart Taichi reskin.
  • Shard of the Advisor has its description edited to be more in line with the other Shard items.
  • Fixed a visual issue where the Mission’s progress would get stuck in the Mission hub.
  • Fixed an issue where the interaction box would not collapse anhd get stuck on the screen.
  • Reverted the last updates changes to server names back to the old ones.
  • Character no longer blinks yellow when equipping Invocation Scroll ability or any other ability with multiple subabilities.
  • Fixed an issue where a string of numbers was displayed on hover for abilities without any damage.
  • Damage for abilities are now displayed when hovering from any tooltip without damage.

Update – Shiny Balance Changes

March 14


We are getting closer and closer to Easter but before that, it is time to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day! Go and hunt the Leprechaun, collect tokens, and turn them in for some nice rewards. Talking about rewards, now is the perfect time for our seasonal characters to go hunt for some tasty shiny items! You can find a list of the first batch of items down below.

You were able to check out the balance and QoL changes on testing 2 weeks ago, now it’s time to implement them in the game. We still did some changes based on your feedback on some of the items, so go and have a look.

Saint Patrick’s Day Event

Starting on the 14th of March (after the release) and ending on the 26th of March at 12 UTC, the Green Leprechaun is back to Realm.

The tiny green fellow is back in the Realms for another run! This year, he will spawn twice – once after you defeat all Red Demons and a second time after Ghost Kings. The Leprechaun will have a chance of spawning either a portal to Rainbow Road or dropping a Pot Of Gold, they will be guaranteed to give you 4 Patty Tokens.

Leprechaun Dungeon Mod

The mod will make it so the Yellow Leprechaun spawns for players after defeating Davy Jones, Daichi the Fallen, Gulpord the Slime God, Dr. Terrible, Septavius the Ghost God, and Archdemon Malphas in their respective dungeons.

Dungeon Events

Also starting with the release and ending on the 20th of March at 12 UTC, the following three dungeons will give 1.5x Loot and XP! Additionally, the Leprechaun Mod will be activated in these dungeons allowing you to receive a guaranteed Patty Token from the Yellow Leprechaun.

  • Davy’s Locker
  • Abyss of Demons
  • Mad Lab

Starting on the 20th of March and ending on the 26th of March at 12 UTC,the following three dungeons will give 1.5x Loot and XP! Additionally, the Leprechaun Mod will be activated in these dungeons. You will receive a guaranteed Patty Token from the Yellow Leprechaun.

  • Mountain Temple
  • Toxic Sewer
  • Undead Lair

The Tinkerer has last year’s UT’s ready for the taking! The Patty Token will drop as follows:

  • Green Leprechaun – Patty Token x4

Fame Boxes

With this release you will be able to purchase Fame boxes again, this time around for Paladin and Priest! You will receive one of the items per spin. These boxes have no limit and can be purchased several times.

Shiny Items

With this patch, some items will be getting special “ultra rare variants” that have different aesthetics.

A “shiny” version of an item will drop from the same locations the original does, but with a much lower chance (which means some of them will be extraordinarily rare to see around). Shiny items are functionally identical to their normal versions.

A special characteristic of shiny items is that they can only drop if you are playing a Seasonal character, although they can still be transferred to your regular vault as usual. Also, you cannot craft Shiny items but you can dismantle them as usual.

If you are lucky enough to find one of these Shiny drops and equip it, you will see that in addition to a spin on the old graphics, the item will display a “shine” effect animation. 

This is the list of items that have a small chance of becoming shiny when dropping, but it will be expanded gradually in the future:

  • Divinity
  • Lumiaire
  • Superior
  • Enforcer
  • Avarice
  • Bow of the Void
  • Hivemaster Helm
  • Laser Pointer
  • The Twilight Gemstone
  • Star of Enlightenment
  • Doom Bow
  • Cloak of the Planewalker
  • Crystal Sword
  • Robe of the Mad Scientist
  • Tome of Purification

Battle Pass

It is time for the next Battle Pass! Season 5 is upon us so check out all the rewards you can gather down below. The BP starts on the 14th of March and ends on the 23th of May at 10 UTC.

A new season also means new Missions! As always, remember that finishing Missions will give you progress with your Battle Pass.

Repeatable Missions

From now on some of the Missions will be repeatable. This means once you have completed them, they can be repeated once their cooldown has ended. Once completed, you can still move forward and complete the next mission in the chain. The reset for the repeatable missions is not affected by server restarts or certain set times. They will reset depending on when you completed them.

Mission Quests

Our new repeatable missions will give you two new items that you can exchange at the Tinkerer for some special quests.

Seasonal Item Forge

For this update, we are changing the rules of Item Forge regarding Seasonal characters. We have heard your feedback and suggestions (thank you very much!) and we have decided to act on it. You can now read the changes that will apply to Item Forge when you play with a Seasonal character.

End of season reset

  • This rule stays; at the end of a season, the Item Forge resets completely for Seasonal characters.

Using Blueprints

  • If you use a Blueprint with a Seasonal character, it will unlock the item in both the seasonal and the regular Item Forge!
  • However, be wary that this does not happen the other way around: if you acquire and use a Blueprint with a regular character, it will only unlock items in the regular Item Forge.
  • The final effect achieved with this is that Blueprints acquired with your Seasonal character will contribute to both your seasonal and regular progression, while Blueprints used with a regular character won’t ever affect your seasonal progression, which would defeat the purpose of seasonality, specially at the beginning of new seasons.

Transferring Blueprints to regular Vault

  • If you have Blueprints you haven’t used in your seasonal Vault, they will be transferred to the regular Vault alongside all your other items, same as of now.
  • However, we have added an extra restriction that forbids a Blueprint to be carried when converting a Seasonal Character into a regular one mid-season, using the NPC in the Nexus.
  • In practical terms, this shouldn’t be a problem because if you get a Blueprint you’d like the recipe for in both Item Forges, simply use it with your Seasonal Character and it will unlock the item in both as per the rule we mentioned before.
  • The reason for this restriction to exist has to do with our future plans for seasonality and creating season-locked items that will be only transferred at the end of the season and not mid season.

Note: The new seasonal forge rules will apply, for technical reasons, on the new upcoming season and not the last one. This means that this last season your Item Forge recipes unlocked with a Seasonal character will not unlock in the regular vault, but from this new season and onwards they will.

Kogbold Express changes 


  • HP: 140 000 – > 110 000
  • 4 Turrets instead of 8
  • Only one turret phase instead which will be random of the three
  • Once per realm max

  • Cower Shield is now a group defense buff

Known Issues

  • Keys with Dungeon Modifiers in Gift Chest have a visual glitch where they do not show the mods correctly. This is purely visual, but we have disabled the mods from showing in the tooltip if the key is in the Gift Chest. A fix will be worked on for a later patch to deal with this issue in a more definitive way.

All skulls have had their heal radius reduced from 6 to 4 unless otherwise mentioned

Designer note: The previous base radius for healing on Necromancers was very high, in this way we hope to reign necromancer in on group healing so it doesn’t step on priest’s toes as much. While Necromancers healing has no diminishing value, it will be on a smaller area.

Vampiric Cape

MP Cost: 120 -> 90
New Effect: Healing for 4 Seconds
New effect: when worn with the rosary spawns 3 bat summons


Fractured Gemstone Wakizashi

Crystal stars are now summons that fire bursts of 8 projectiles as they orbit
Projectiles deal 250-300 damage and expose for 3 seconds
Summons have a delay before they first shoot so you cannot spellbomb with it
Summons orbit in a random direction and have small radius variability

Wakizashi of Crossing Fires

MP cost: 100 -> 90
Offset angle: 75 -> 60


Penetrating blast spell

MP cost: 65 -> 85

Recurring Terror Spell

MP cost: 75 -> 80

Designer note: both of the above spells were significantly cheaper than most tiered spells and felt too efficient in mana for their effects; this increase in mana won’t decrease their power but will slightly decrease their spammability.

Slurpian Sea Scroll

MP Cost 120 -> 110
Speed Boost duration: 2 second -> 3 seconds


Tome of the Mushroom Tribes

Mp cost: 80 -> 130
Healing per tick -> 120 -> 75
Max targets: 10 -> 15
Tooltip update: Range 6.5 -> 5 (Actual range unchanged, the tooltip was incorrect)
New effect: healing buff applied within range of the mushroom

Designer note: The nerf to this tome is long overdue, it was ignored in the original vital combat tome nerf and has since become far and above the best healing option often able to outheal entire boss patterns on its own. Even with a large nerf this tome should still be very powerful, but not trivializing many fights it is in.

Players may notice that this tome has received a second, even harsher nerf since the PT, this is because even as it stood heavily nerfed in the PT it was found to still be extremely powerful. While a 60% mana increase and nearly halving of healing may sound like an extreme nerf, and it is, it is more indicative of just how powerful this tome was before.

This item will be watched after this nerf, and if a buff is deemed necessary it will receive one, but please, try it out on production, see how it performs, we believe it will still prove quite useful.

Tome of Holy Protection/Tome of Frigid Protection

MP cost: 150 -> 130


VIT: -5 -> 0
Damage: 100-200 -> 400-600

Tome of Pain

MP cost: 120 -> 110
Damage: 500 -> 600


Crystal Shield

Cooldown 5s -> 1s
DEF: 0 -> 10
HP: 0 -> 40
On hold effect: Invulnerable -> Armored
Speed penalty: -30 -> -10
MP cost: 70/s -> 40/s
New: When hit while armored retaliate by firing the shield shot (eye effect)
When hit for 30 or more damage while armored, heal 10 HP
Shield shot damage: 200-220 -> 250-350
Shield shots now pierce enemies and obstacles

Designer note:
Unfortunate as it is, the original design of this shield has caused more problems than it was worth. Many bosses have had to have specific design considerations added in to prevent this one item from potentially trivializing phases. While we appreciate the risk/reward it brought for the Knight user themselves, that same risk was not extended to the other players participating in the dungeon who got to benefit from the Knight acting as a human decoy. We hope this new version can still promote some risk/reward gameplay or at least be useful as a defensive tool in phases where another knight shield would provide no benefit.

We received a lot of feedback around this change over the course of the PT. While many of you are likely disappointed to find the direction of the item unchanged, we did not believe there was a good way to keep the item in its old state, even with many of the suggestions we saw. For example, the suggestion of applying invisibility to the item, while it would solve the human decoy issue, could very well bring up other balance issues by making the Knight extremely powerful in solos.

Additionally, we believe that human decoy or not, the sustained invulnerability provided by this item has potential to be problematic in itself, granting up to 8 straight seconds of invulnerability, that can still trivialize some more dodging based phases and can restrict more bullet dense design. In the old state of the item you could stay invulnerable for 8 seconds, quickly consume potions, and then go right into another 8 seconds of invulnerability, potentially repeating a few times with enough consumables, for dungeons where sustained dodging is a priority this would be extremely powerful. Suggestions to increase the mana cost, or even the cooldown of the item, could help to resolve this problem but would push the item into either being extremely clunky to use (cooldown) or requiring very specific builds to even work (mana cost). These do not seem like great choices for the item’s overall health and would just serve to make the item feel bad instead of trying to move it in a different direction.

The performance of this item will be watched, and if it remains in need of a buff in it will receive one. In the future when we have more tools available we would also like to revisit this item once again, and potentially give it yet another rework to bring it more inline with the tanking item many players expect it to be, without going all the way back to applying invulnerable.

Shockblast Targets 2 + 1 per 10 DEF over 30
Tooltip fix: proc range 3.5 -> 4.5 (was incorrect)



Damage: 90-110 -> 80-100

Designer note: Luminaire was designed with a staggeringly high damage output coupled with a pretty rough downside. As time went on however it was clear that the downside was not as hard to deal with as originally assumed. This wand out damages every other option by an insane amount and after this nerf it will still sit comfortably at the top, just with less of a gap below it.

Soul’s Guidance

Soul Damage: 100 -> 200
Soul Poison Damage: 500 -> 0

Designer note: While rather unassuming this wand actually had an insane amount of damage output with the average amount of souls sustained. Though inconvenient to corral the souls to where you wanted, if you used this item well it would easily outclass every wand short of Lumiaire without any sort of gear investment. While this nerf is very steep it will now accurately reflect the level of content it comes from rather than substantially outclass it, and should still be a very solid dps option for builds that are not bringing attack or dexterity to the table.

Wand of the Fallen/Snowblind Wand 

Damage: 200-235 -> 205-240

Crystal Wand/Warlord’s Wand/Frozen Wand

Damage: 95-140 -> 105-150

T12 65-70 70-80
T13 70-75 75-85
T14 75-80 80-90


Corruption Cutter/Dueling Daggers

Damage: 85-100 -> 85-90

Designer note: While similar to other dblade-esque items this one can be used from a much safer range and provides damage that can still outclass even the highest tiers of daggers. This nerf should bring it down a little bit and be more appropriate for its drop location.

Symbiotic Ripper

Damage: 110-165 -> 115-170


Crystal Sword/Enchanted Ice Blade

Damage: 180-210 -> 195-225

Ancient Stone Sword/Acidic Slasher/Eternal Graved Great Sword

Fire pattern changed


Protective Matrixes

Proc HP threshold: 20% -> 50%
Invulnerability duration: 2s -> 1s
Proc cooldown: 240 seconds -> 180 seconds

Designer note:  It may be confusing to see a nerf to an item that was substantially buffed during the testing phase, this however was due to a separate change done a while ago to how invulnerability is applied. Unlike in the past this item will now apply invulnerability instantly, able to save you from even the most deadly of shotguns so long as the damage you take from each individual shot is less than the health threshold. This was noticed as a potential problem as it meant you could effectively survive everything in the game and get a 2 second cooldown out of it. This version will still allow you to have protection from death, with the higher threshold being a buff making sure any damage you could take would count within saving range. However, this higher threshold also means you need to make sure you play well to keep your safety net up as dropping to half health for any reason will proc the effect and put it on cooldown. The armor also has had its invulnerability duration cut in half along with this as the ease of which you could proc this item coupled with a relatively long duration meant it could let you get away with more than just being saved from a large mistake.

There is potential that this item is still broken and is too effective at saving players, potentially playing out similarly to just having an ammy if you make sure to nexus in that second of invulnerability. This item like many others will be watched after this release to see if it requires any other changes, be they buffs or further nerfs.


Steam Pipe

Reworked, Now fires a line of 4 projectiles with different ranges, blue pierce, orange armor pierce


Vesture of Duality

SPD: +10 -> +5

Designer note: though this change may seem out of nowhere, it seemed appropriate to lower the status of this robe so it is not both the best dps robe and the best speed robe at the same time.

Diplomatic Robe

On hit proc -> On ability Proc
Cooldown: 4 -> 8 seconds
Portal damage: 250 -> 125

Designer note: This change should make the proc of this robe actually something you seek to use and benefit from, the new portal appears on cursor rather than your current location which makes utilizing it much easier, as such the damage from the portal needed to be toned down a little.

Update – Easter and Moonlight Village

March 28


We are finally here, Easter is upon us! Biff went to the gym and trained hard to make sure he can show his new skills. Be careful though, as he is now full of surprises. Additionally, let’s welcome the newest dungeon to RotMG! Moonlight Village by Mizumi is now in the game. You don’t want to miss out on our Easter event, free campaign and more.

Moonlight Village

There are many discordant spirits in the Realm – beings that amass great amounts of power to cause great change in chaotic ways. However, there are also harmonious spirits – those that exist in the background in order to maintain a thin yet tangible balance between the forces in the Realm. Due to their mostly passive nature, they are seldom encountered by mortals – until very recently.

A great migration has occurred in the Realm, and thousands of wispy, floating lights descend upon the land, always traveling but with no cohesive destination. Some of the Realm’s denizens appreciate the unexpected beauty of this incident, while Oryx sees them as but a minor annoyance. With their seemingly endless numbers and a lack of a central source, removing these wisps was an act of futility for Oryx’s minions.

It serves as the border between the ethereal and the physical, linking to a distant land. Crossing would bring one to an old and seemingly abandoned eastern village. What lies here may be the spiritual remnants of a long, bygone culture of exquisite dance and cunning warfare. However, this village is not without its occupants – ethereal dancers of an ancient, yet strangely recognizable art. What you might not realize, is that their form of dance may be far more lethal than it seems.

Creator’s Notes

I am Mizumi, the lead creator of the Moonlight Village dungeon, and I will be your guide to tonight’s festival. This dungeon has been in development since the start of 2022 and I would like to give a massive thanks to everyone I’m about to mention as well as those who helped in little ways to get the dungeon to this point.

Lead – Mizumi

Design – stellalumi

Art – Zquidx

Special Thanks – MOONSHOOT, Toastrz

The Moonlight Village is an old eastern fishing village which lies far away from the grasps of Oryx’s rule. The peaceful village comes alive at night, as spirits gather to witness the spectacular festival!

The dungeon is set within a small fishing village at night, on the eve of celebrations. Unlike most dungeons in the game, this one has no minion clearing section and will instead consist purely of bosses. Three dancers will greet you at the festival as you make your way to the village center square!

The three dancers rotate throughout the festival to be the central performer. Once a dancer has performed, they won’t become the main dancer again but will act in a supporting role! The festival will end once all three dancers have performed and the closing act has finished.

Although their lively performances may appear welcoming at first, ensure you are able to keep up with their pace or you might end up joining the souls that have passed on! The core dungeon has varying levels of difficulty depending on the player’s choices, but it aims to hit an average difficulty of 8/10.

When in regular difficulty mode, the final dancer who concludes the festival will grant the following exaltations:

Sage Genji – LIFE Exaltation

Drummer Kaguya – MANA Exaltation

Dancer Miko – ATT Exaltation

The dungeon also has various unique mechanics that determine how you progress through the boss fights.

Unlike other boss fights in the game, the festival dancers will not use a health bar as an indicator for the progression of the fight. Instead, they will have a counter bar that signals to players how far they have advanced through a phase. Think of this as a timer!

However, it is possible to hasten the timer. Laying fire upon the main dancer during their normal phases will cause the timer to tick up faster. The higher the damage per second, the faster the phase will finish. On the other hand, not shooting at the bosses will cause the timer to tick much slower.

Other than the damage timer, there is also a second timer mechanic that you will encounter called the lantern timer. Between each ‘normal’ phase of the boss, there are survival sections known as danmaku phases.

During danmaku phases, the main dancer will be invulnerable. Instead, a lantern will manifest that players can follow. Similar to before, following the lantern will help speed up the progression of the phase. This is especially important during danmaku phases due to the presence of dancer specific status effect auras that will impede players. Being close to the lantern will also provide a healing buff and remove the bleeding status effect, which might be crucial for certain auras!


The reward system for Moonlight Village is also quite different from regular dungeons. The better you ‘perform’ during the fights, the higher the quality and quantity of rewards!

In essence, the faster you are able to complete the dungeon the higher the grade of loot that is provided at the end of the festival. This means players must both be able to consistently deal damage to the bosses as well as follow the lantern closely if they want better chances at loot.

Event Boss

The Ethereal Shrine is a mysterious building that has appeared within the realm. It emanates a steady torrent of spiritual energy, spewing a sea of wisps across the land.

These wisps appear to be harmless, even giving off a feeling of warmth and happiness when touched! Although they may appear to be wandering aimlessly, they are in fact trying to find their way back home.

The gate to the spirit realm is not so easy to approach however. Gather spirits from across the realm in order to activate the encounter and prepare for a fight! Similarly to the dungeon, you can follow the lantern in order to weaken the defenses of the shrine.

Concluding Thoughts

Thank you to everyone who has given feedback during the development of the dungeon, Moonlight Village would not have been well polished without your help! We encourage players of all levels of play to try out the dungeon with an open mind, as the dungeon might be difficult but is nowhere near as punishing as most endgame dungeons.

Enjoy your stay at the festival!

Biff Changes

Biff is now stronger!

We have reworked the Biff fight in order to be more in line with other event bosses in the game. To spawn it, you have to clear all the Ghost Kings in a new realm.

During the first phase, Biff rotates between two sub-attacks. These phases include shooting shots in a radial pattern and shooting rotating bullets.

In the second phase, he throws his egg baskets towards the edge of the arena and starts shooting grenades in the shape of carrots. The egg baskets shoot projectiles outwards and throw egg grenades inwards. In this phase players have to defeat the baskets to proceed.

In the third phase, the Buffed Bunny shoots an arc of slightly rotating bullets.

In the fourth phase, he throws eggs to the edge of the arena and starts walking randomly to them while shooting inwards. After he receives some damage, he goes to the center and starts shooting projectiles, while the eggs start rotating around him and shoot bullets slowly in circular shapes.

The drop table has been balanced around the changed complexity of the fight. He now drops a guaranteed stat potion and has a chance to drop the Incubation Mace.

Free Campaign

Time for another Campaign! This time around it’s free for everyone to take part in it. Go and hunt for Colorful Eggs and turn them in. Depending on the content you do, you will receive different amounts of Eggs. Every Egg gives you 5 Points in the Campaign progression. But now let’s have a look at the rewards.

Free Packs

Until the 4th of April you will be able to claim those Free bundles!

The April Fools’ Pack will be available on the first of April.

Battle Pass & Mission Changes

We heard your feedback and additionally had a look at our own data. We agree that the amount of BXP needed right now in order to finish the Battle Pass is too high. We have decided to reduce the required BXP by ~25%. In order to complete it now, you will need to gain 615k BXP. You will also find a free BP Booster in the Shop.

Additionally, we have added BXP to two of our repeatable seasonal missions.

Purify Evil 1: 2250 BXP per repeat

A Neverending Evil: 2500 BXP per repeat

New Status Effect: Drought

This new Status Effect “Drought”, represented by an empty potion icon, will temporarily disable consumable items for the player, causing you to be unable to use them for its duration. You will see this new status effect implemented for the first time in Moonlight Village, Interregnum, and Shatters sick phases.

This includes all things marked as consumables, blueprints, keys, skins, will all be unable to be used or consumed during the effect duration.

Veteran Skins

They are back in the shop! If your account is older than 7 years you will be able to purchase them for Fame! This pack will not show up in the Shop if you already claimed them in the past.

Other fixes

  • Fixed a case where the cooldown for procs were not working correctly in items with different uses.
  • Fixed attack pattern problems when using any Tachi with an Invocation Scroll.
  • Fixed sprites for Katalund and Forax Augmented Keys.
  • Fixed minor errors in item tooltip descriptions.
  • Fixed a bug in Shatters for an infrequent crash.
  • Fixed a bug in Secluded Thicket for an infrequent crash.
  • Fixed wrong projectile for Treasure Hunter Archer once the full set is equipped.

Update – O3 and Moonlight Village

April 25


Easter and its events are coming to an end. We had a full month of Events and a community campaign and it’s now time to move forward with the next update. You already tested some of the changes coming up to Realm of the Mad God, like the O3 changes and Moonlight Villages adjustments. Additionally, our newest STs for the Priest and Ninja now drop from specific dungeons. To celebrate this we are hosting events in them. The April Fool Skins will be removed with this update. 

Oryx 3 Adjustments

The Oryx 3 fight has shown a lot of issues as time progressed, generally as time goes on we expect for bosses to get more optimized. Oryx 3 however has in some cases been optimized to the point where the boss is incapable of attacking for the majority of the fight. The primary culprit of this is the counter/stagger system, as it currently exists dealing enough damage quick enough will instantly cancel any attack oryx is doing and force him into a reset. Coupled with many instances where O3 is vulnerable to damage while not doing anything and you can blow away most of the fight with oryx barely shooting a single bullet. The following changes should keep the majority of the fight intact while still rewarding good gameplay and patching up a lot of the above issues.

The O3 counter/stagger system has been fully retooled, now instead of getting the counter or stagger at the end of an attack, O3 will fully complete all of the attacks in a combo chain. When you hit a certain threshold of damage in each phase, o3 will go invulnerable for the remainder of the attack and add to a tally of times the threshold was reached in the combo, at the end of the combo O3 will enter a stagger state with a duration depending on how many of these thresholds was reached over the course of the combo. When hitting a threshold an attack will end a little bit faster than if that threshold was not hit and the attack fully played out.

The thresholds have been normalized to 3.5% for all o3 attacks, this is not a final value, but was chosen to hopefully allow well played solos to still hit these thresholds on occasion. Additionally if you happen to have a stagger occur near the bosses next phase transition, the stagger will allow you to push up to 5% of Oryx’s hp into the next phase. If you hit a phase transition with a stagger count of 2 or higher a stagger will automatically occur as if the combo chain ended there.

Oryx now only does combos of length 2 or 3 before he becomes exalted, and will only do combo chains of length 4 or 5 while exalted. This should allow you to get staggers more often in the earlier parts of the fight but need to last through longer attack chains in the later parts.

O3 has had some of his phase transition points changed in order to shift a little more of the fight into later phases and speed up the portions that players generally find less engaging.

The threshold changes are as follows:
Portals 80% -> 85%
Dance 60% -> 70%
Exalted 50% -> 55%
Celestial Unchanged – 40%
Heavens 20% -> 15%
Death 5% -> 1%

Counters have been entirely removed from the fight.

Invulnerability has been added to the windows at the start of attacks and between combos as o3 is resetting to the center. This should cut down on the “free” damage windows present in the fight as they had previously been contributing to the fight being steamrolled in higher dps groups.

The hp scaling for player counts 2-5 has been increased from 25% to 35%, this only increases the health gained at those player counts, scaling beyond the 5th player is unchanged.

Celestial caps damage dealt at 20% of O3’s HP during that phase, this will not longer let you kill him entirely during that phase but, coupled with the stagger at the end, will let you push all the way into heavens and even cut into its hp pool a bit. When combined with subsequent the stagger this totals to 25% damage from a single celestial.

Each Oryx 3 attack now has a third attack it can chain into, this was done to counteract the loss of chain variety caused by the removal of Counters, reincorporating the lost “Guarded Chains” by splitting them into the attacks that lost them and the attacks that previously had staggers.

Oryx now has a 50% chance to grant an additional Life Exaltation when defeated.

Over our testing periods, we have received a lot of feedback, both positive and negative. While it may disappoint some of you to see these changes make it Live, we, unfortunately, were not able to get the full data that we wanted for the system on testing. What we did get was very promising, resulting in a nearly imperceptible time difference from a production run, and solving the issues we set out to solve. As such these changes will be going live, but should the system prove to be overall negative after players have gotten used to it, revisiting it or rolling it back will be on the table. That said, we do believe if you give the changes a shot, once you get used to them you will find them rather positive.

It’s time for the next update. The current season is coming to an end which means the next one is just around the corner.

You can find all information about them down below.

Battle Pass

New Shiny Items

Coming in this new season is a new small batch of shiny items, The Tome of Holy Protection, Beekeeper’s Flamethrower, Scepter of Devastation, and Penetrating Blast Spell. These shiny items will rarely drop for the seasonal characters from their normal sources.

Seasonal Spoils

As announced last week, we decided to do some changes to the plan of the Seasonal Spoils Chest. This new Chest will be used in the future to move your Seasonal Items to the Spoils Chest, and after a set time those items will be deleted. BUT due to feedback from the community and us investigating further actions we can take before doing this move, we decided to implement the Spoils Chest differently for now.

The Spoils Chest will not have a ‘deletion’ timer for now and items will be stored in the chest while we keep working on additional adjustments to the normal Gift Chest and Vault. For the time being, ONLY the items from the Seasonal Vault will be sent to the new Seasonal Spoils Chest. All the items from your current Seasonal Gift Chest will be sent to your non-seasonal Gift Chest. Your Potions will also be sent to your Gift Chest. At a later point, we will introduce an end date to items in the Seasonal Spoils Chest in order to future-proof it from becoming too unwieldy, but we will give you enough time to sort out the items you want to save.

Further Oryx 3 changes

As we said last update we would be watching the Oryx 3 system changes and potentially making more changes based on the results. Unfortunately, while the new systems are achieving most of what they have set out to do, a significant impact in runs has been seen in more casual settings that we did not see in the Testing sessions before the last update. While in general, the math should line up that a fight would not take much longer at all due to the invuln times being relatively short and at worst being about equal to the times spent waiting for Oryx guards to end. The reality is that a large portion of players in these more casual runs are now either choosing not to interact with O3 post-exalted or are simply dealing meaningful enough damage mid-phase due to how dangerous and punishing they can be to people who aren’t extremely experienced. This causes what appeared to be runs with little to no time difference to suddenly be a lot longer when applied to Production. In addition, a lot of more experienced players are reporting that they are not feeling as immediately rewarded for going in and dealing damage on harder phases.

To address this we have reverted the counter/stagger system back to normal and removed the phase damage caps that were implemented with it. We believe these changes were in the right direction, but to fully realize requires some additional measures that we do not have the tech to do just yet. With these removed the new combo chains have also been removed as this brings back the guarded chains.

Due to some feedback surrounding Counters coming back, we have also reduced the possible counter effects to just one, Silence. This should still punish the group but not be as swingy or annoying as the older effects of sick/armor break/weak/quiet.

The following changes from the last update are still present:

  • New o3 hp thresholds
  • 50% bonus exalt rate
  • Flashing blue when towers are up
  • Hp scaling for players 1-5
  • Removal of reset and pre-attack damage windows.
